BCCI The Bank of Commerce & Credit International
The Tories Belgrave
Founded in 1972 by a Pakistani banker, Agha Hasan Abedi, BCCI used mainly oil-based Arabian capital. By 1989 the bank had 382 offices in 69 countries.
From the mid 1980's it was generally acknowledged the rapid expansion of BCCI owed a lot more to dirty-money than good business practice.
January 1989. Eddie George, Governor of the Bank of England warned Mrs Thatcher and her chief creative accountant at the Treasury, John Major, BCCI was under FBI investigation – for overstating it’s assets - and bound to fail.
Thatcher and Major refused to act against the London office of the bank. Or warn the public. Western Isles Council had £M60 on High Interest Deposit with BCCI. They were not warned their money was at risk.
It transpired the Medellín Cocaine Cartel had been one of the banks first customers. The Dictator Ferdinand Marcos, funnelled $M100 through BCCI into Swiss accounts. Imelda will never go bare-foot. Similar despots, including General Noriega, Nicola Ceausescu, Saddam Hussein, the Tory cabinet and several Lloyd’s of London Syndicates took full advantage of BCCI’s ‘specialist’ banking services, which included an all encompassing brothel-service. The London branch-brothel was a
spacious luxury garden flat in Belgrave Square. When the Serious Fraud Squad raided the brothel they found walk-in costume wardrobes complete with headmaster, schoolgirl, naughty nurse and authentic Royal Navy and Metropolitan Policewoman uniforms (Scotland Yard denied the open crutch knickers were standard issue).
BCCI had two main offices. Luxembourg and the Cayman Islands. Both, busy tax-havens where any amount of politician's dirty-money can be hidden in a maze of nominee-accounts.
The bank could still be in business were it not for a few good men. New York District Attorney Robert Morganthau and Assistant DA. John Moscow, could not be bought off. As authorities in other countries undoubtedly were.
In the July of 1990 five former officials of BCCI were jailed for laundering $M32 cocaine profits for the Medellín Cartel. $M32 was only the tip of the iceberg. Further convictions were not possible in 19901 because many governments refused to prosecute the bank until government ministers had closed their own BCCI (dirty-money) accounts and covered their tracks.
The US inquiry had accidentally exposed Mr Regan's Black Op's Poster Boy Colonel Oliver North. North had used BCCI branches in New York, Nicaragua, Beirut, and Tehran to service the Iran-Contra, Drugs for Arms deals.
Queen Lizzy's puppets Thatcher, Hurd, Howe, Major, Aitken, Clark, Armstrong & Co. Denied illegally selling arms to Iran, and parts for the Super-Gun to Iraq. BCCI officials could have proved otherwise. They were never asked. Had the bank been turned over in 1989 a Labour government would have followed. 2
July 1991. Creative accountant John Major finally gave British Bank Inspectors permission to raid BCCI and the bank collapsed. Twenty bank officials took the fall. Queen Lizzy's Arabian pals bought the failed bank to make sure the main malpractice trial took place in Abu Dhabi.
The official's stated the vast amount of dirty-money washing into BCCI had led them astray. Apart from kick-backs from the drug cartels, politician's were depositing the kind of money that could only come from looting their own Treasuries. Officials found the temptation too much. They helped themselves. These boys made the "Nat West Three" look like a bus-fare-dodgers. They stole an astonishing £12 bn.
Thatcher’s thugs, Howard, Archer, Hurd, Howe, Clarke, Parkinson, Gummer, Eggar, Inghams, Lilley, Hogg, Tebbit, Hamilton, Porter, Bottomley(s), Aitken, Port-a-loo etc., were undoubtedly warned BCCI was about to fail. The rate-payers of the Western Isles were not. Leaving the council stone broke with mounting debts.
1979 – 1997. While presiding over countless yuppie city frauds and blatant "privatising" thefts of public property Queen Lizzy's prime puppets Thatcher and Major spent twenty years promoting the insane production of needless nuclear waste. 1997 - 2009 Blair and Brown have been doing exactly the same for Nuclear Lizzy. Pouring billions of taxpayer’s money into nuclear outfits cosily covered by Her Majesty's
1 Observer 3rd November 1996.
2 The Scott Inquiry prosecuted no-one. Lizzy's last gang of crown licensed Tory thugs remain at large. The two year-long 200,000 page Scott Inquiry was a waste of your money. Unless you read it as a Whitehall Farce. In that case you do, at least, get a bloody good laugh.
Lest Ye Forget
January 2001: Hail to the Thief
The hatred was palpable. President's usually walk large stretches of the Inaugural route glad-handing the crowd. Not this President. This crowd would have ripped his arms off. Officers detained several thousand protesters. Many were shouting "Hail to the Thief." Thousands gathered with the filmmaker Michael Moore. His group was ultimately allowed to proceed down to the parade route. Daryl Lindsey
The Inauguration Protest Jan 20, 2001. I went off to yell "Hail to the Thief" in Washington D.C. Bush Limo: Egged!
Police used intimidation tactics to keep protest groups from joining each other. Ultimately, it's a culmination of corporate control in America.

The report advocates the transformation of the US military, making it better able to support their aspiration for an active, internationalist US foreign policy. But, the authors acknowledge: "the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event - like a new Pearl Harbour."

I have also asked Joe Allbaugh, the Director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, to create an Office of National Preparedness. This Office will be responsible for implementing the results of those parts of the national effort overseen by Vice President Cheney that deal with consequence management. Specifically it will coordinate all Federal programs dealing with weapons of mass destruction consequence management within the Departments of Defense, Health and Human Services, Justice, and Energy, the Environmental Protection Agency, and other federal agencies. The Office of National Preparedness will work closely with state and local governments to ensure their planning, training, and equipment needs are addressed."

He had made some progress in gaining access to evidence, but so far the investigation had been a failure. Concerned about continuing threats against the remaining F.B.I. investigators, he tried to return in January of 2001. Bodine denied his application to re-enter the country. She refuses to discuss that decision."

Instead he deigned only to chat with the commission members, with Vice President Dick Cheney present, in a White House meeting in which commission members were not allowed to take notes.

But another more infamous date -- Sept. 11, 2001 -- is nowhere to be found on the same FBI notice.

Trident nee Polaris
It was a labour Prime Mouthpiece who announced (albeit in different words) the British taxpayer would pay billions per-year to rent American-nuclear-submarine-missile-systems made by companies partly owned by the royal family. Every Prime Mouthpiece since Jim Callaghan has assured the British public only the British can fire these American made weapons. The Queen expects her simple subjects to believe the Yanks are daft enough to rent-out nuclear weapons that could be fired back at them!?
House Of Lords 24 Jan 2007 : Column 1105
Let me rapidly remind the House of the key decisions set out in the White Paper: we have decided to renew our minimum independent nuclear deterrent by procuring a new class of ballistic missile submarine to replace our four Vanguard-class submarines in the 2020s; we will examine whether we require three or four of the new class of submarines to maintain our posture of having a submarine always on deterrent patrol; we have decided to join the US programme to extend into the 2040s the life of the Trident D5 ballistic missiles that our submarines currently carry; and we have secured assurances from the US Government, which were published last month, giving us the option to participate in any future programme to replace the D5 missile... Lords Hansard Home Page
This means is the usual obscene profits for the Nuclear Nutters Club taken from the British taxpayer for totally useless nuclear weapons. There is absolutely no point in Britain having any nuclear-missile-subs. If the captain of the boat ever gets an order to fire a nuke; that order will come from the President of America who supplied the nuke. If a nuke is fired without a Presidential Order American satellites will disarm the warheads the moment the missile breaks the surface.

Cover-up in pipeline for Mummies Boy?
Former Spanish Colony Equatorial Guinea
has become Africa's third-largest oil producer.
Baronet Sir Mark Thatcher’s friend, Simon Mann, in court for allegedly plotting to invade Equatorial Guinea.
Ex SAS trooper Simon Mann set-up a security outfit called Executive Outcomes. Lawyers acting for President Obiang of Equatorial Guinea allege Mann’s outfit was hired to kill President Obiang and install the exiled opposition leader, Severo Moto, as President. Mann is Baronet Sir Mark Thatcher’s friend and neighbour in the exclusive Cape Town suburb of Constantia. Thatcher was arrested for allegedly procuring a helicopter gunship for Mann’s outfit. Mann’s alleged mission ended abruptly last March when his plane carrying 70 mercenaries landed at Harare airport Zimbabwe. Mann and his men expected to load weapons purchased by a South African arms dealer, Mr. Nicholas du Toit. Instead they were arrested.
At the same time Mr. du Toit was arrested with fourteen others in Malabo, the capital of Equatorial Guinea, Mr. du Toit has testified he attended a meeting with Thatcher and Mann in July 2003. He says Mann offered him $M1 to equip the invasion force and keep Mann informed of the whereabouts of President Obiang and his inner circle.
President Obiang’s lawyers have found documentary evidence connecting Thatcher, the exiled Severo Moto, Eli Calil a London-based oil tycoon, Greg Wales a London businessman and the Tory fraudster Jeffery Archer (Another Tory jailbird Jonathan Aitken, a bent arms dealer if ever there was one, has not been implicated. Sept. 4 2004).
Nicknamed “Scratcher” at Harrow, Thatcher came to public notice when his mother sent the RAF to find him in the African desert when he got lost in a car rally. He moved to Dallas in 1984 after journalists questioned mummy’s part in securing £M9 “commission” for him when she insisted he acted as "salesman" for a British company given a £M370 contract by mummy's pal the Sultan of Oman. In Texas, Scratcher befriended a a despicable little turd called George Bush Junior. Shady deals resulted in an IRS investigation and an out of court settlement for racketeering.
In 1994 he wheedled his way out of a Parliament investigation into his "commissions" from mummy’s Saudi Arabian arms deals.
He moved to South Africa in 1995 after more allegations concerning his Dallas business deals.
In Cape Town Thatcher is known as a loan shark. Lending money only to government employee's with guaranteed pensions. Thatcher's unearned title "Baronet" was dreamt-up by the outrageously homosexual King James 1st. James sold these totally spurious titles to any crook with £1,000 to spare. The present Queen dishes-out these titles the same way she throws bones to her four-legged lap-dogs. Thatcher’s twin sister rejected the offer of being labelled with a phony title just because her mother licked the Queen’s arsehole. Asked about her brother’s arrest in Cape Town she said: "I'm not a big fan of Africa and I'm not a big fan of my brother."
British Virgin Islands. April 24. 2004.
She who should be jailed pays £M12.
Tesco heiress and thieving Maggie's best mate, Dame Shirley Porter, was in charge of the Tory flagship Westminster Council. Not surprisingly she sold illegally under-priced homes to Tory voters. Today we hear she offered to pay £M12.3 to stay out of jail. This is months after claiming she only had £300,000 to her name. A few good men doggedly traced some of her share of the Tesco billions to one of the Tories palm fringed dirty money banks in the British Virgins. Westminster council say her crime, and bringing the gobby-cow to book cost Westminster ratepayers £M43.
