Criminal Bureaucracy……

21 Jun

‘Would you like a highly paid job with a gold-plated pension in which you can lie and deceive to further your own ends?  When you are inevitably found out you can leave with a golden handshake and move to another similarly highly paid position where you can continue to act with impunity……’

 

Then the Civil Service or one it’s many QUANGOs, banking institutions, regulatory bodies or a politician could be the job for you……

 

With so much apparent criminal activity being exposed with such frequency including, fraud, corruption and money laundering, I find it hard to understand why our prisons are not full of senior company executives and politicians.

Caught Red-Handed……

cash-in-an-envelopeAmidst the recent batch of exposés carried out by undercover reporters posing as business clients, numerous Lords and MPs have been caught offering their services for a not inconsiderable amount of money.  When a high percentage of the population survive on the minimum wage and take home a little over £1000 per month, employing MPs for a similar amount to do nothing more than pull a few strings and whisper in the ear of their colleagues  it is unsurprisingly viewed by those earning a minimum wage as an insult.  Despite their protestations that they have not committed any crime, it is pretty clear to anybody with a modicum of intelligence that they are abusing their privileged positions to line their own pockets……

Bankers……

The LIBOR scandal is yet another example of people with the power to affect the rest of us by abusing their positions of trust.  The amounts by which they were able to influence the LIBOR rates may have only been in the order of 0.02% but when one takes the size of the average mortgage into account the result is not unsubstantial.  The whole LIBOR and banking system is inherently corrupt.  Why would banks need to lend money to each other?  The answer is what’s known as ‘fractional reserve banking’, a system which requires a bank to hold only a small proportion of the money it lends in reserve.  Because of this system money is created out of thin air and lent at interest to likes of you and me.  For example:  If a bank is required to hold 10% of its liabilities it can lend the remaining 90% to another institution which does the same.  And the result; hundreds of thousands of Pounds are conjured up for the banks to earn interest on. Greedy Pol 02

The same process happens with ‘national’ banks.  The Bank of England, The Federal Reserve, International Monetary Fund and World Banks are not institutions of the state.  They are private entities with the power to print money, lend it to the state with added interest, which is then repaid with tax payers’ money.  This effectively enslaves us all to governments and their favoured institutions by creating a never ending cycle of debt from which we will never escape……

It’s a Fair Cop Gov’……

When the heads of the corrupt banking system get caught out some resign, others are pushed out, but almost all leave with a 7 figure pay out and their enormous pensions in tact.  And do they disappear to blend into the background?  No, they pop up like Lazarus in a new equally highly paid job as if nothing had ever happened.  Nowhere else in the universe in which the rest of live does this happen.

Suppose you have a mundane, 9 to 5, minimum wage job and you see an opportunity to make a few quid on the side.  The chances are, if you are caught, you will be unceremoniously marched off of the premises and prosecuted by your ex-employer.  You may spend some time detained at Her Majesty’s pleasure and when released your misdemeanour will follow you around like a bad smell impeding on your chances of finding new employment.  Your original crime may have only been relatively minor but you receive the full treatment all the same.  This never seems to happen in the case of Chief Executives and Politicians……

Taken to the Extreme……

The United States of America and the United Kingdom are both guilty of wars crimes.  Both have, and are, detaining people without charge and without access to legal representation.  The US admits to torturing detainees and the British Government is guilty of involvement in the ‘extraordinary rendition’ of UK citizens to foreign territories where they claim to have been tortured, and I have no reason to doubt them.  The UK authorities, hiding behind the mantra of ‘national security’, most definitely do not want these allegations tested in an open court.

Wanted01The United States of America has carried out the extra-judicial execution of foreign nationals in Sovereign Countries with which it is not at war.  The UK now has the same ordinance, purchased from the US, under its control.  For what reason is unclear.

The UK and US are also responsible for supplying military equipment to Israel which is in clear breach of numerous UN resolutions – for example; resolution 242 which instructed Israel to dismantle its civilian settlements in Palestinian occupied territory in accordance with Article 49 of the Geneva Conventions.  And whilst the sabre rattling continues against Iran’s supposed nuclear ambitions, Israel still refuses to agree to the IAEA inspections which take place in all other nuclear states apart from PRNK……

Statistics……

As our elected representatives are so keen on statistics, here’s one for them:  The two chambers seat 1468 MPs and Lords.  With the average crime statistic being 2.07% per head of population, statistically speaking there should be 30 (.38) criminals amidst their ranks.  If we count Chris Huhne as one of them, who are the other 29?  (Answers on a postcard to:  I’m a two faced, conniving, self-interested, narcissist, The House of Commons, London, SW1).

 

It seems that money and power buys you immunity from the law and your status allows you to act with impunity and carries no consequences for actions which would find us ‘plebeians’ facing prosecution and ruin……
