Where's This Trougher Extrordinaire Off To?
Hours of digging and so much amazing joined up stuff. It nearly always comes back to Defense Ministers, so far. Let's pop back to 2005. Rover got a multi-million reprieve just before the election. Whilst up in Rosyth, our Jimmy's shipyards were saved/reprieved through a 30 billion pound contract for carriers. Now who was behind this deal? Are they linked in any way to our Taliban buddies and receivers of our largess? You bet they are and I expect to see our Geoff perched on some lucrative cushion ere long supplied by these guys or one of their thousands of companies.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present the most corrupt, conniving but too big to be punished,
I realise they are a stellar and very well known player in the world of corporate dubious practices and just about the world leader in such activities. My question, however is why they directly or indirectly control masses of MoD contracts. Is the £6 billion quid of missing kit, incompetence and dreadful MoD failures, connected to this relationship? One thing is for certain, they have a big hold over our Labour Government and our Geoff has been more than happy to work with them. They have interests in DSL and were born of Halliburton. They have links with Balfour Beattie, Thales and too many to track. Lots and lots of MPs to find amongst their dark recesses and I rather suspect The MoD should be renamed,
MINISTRY OF KBR!
A further connection, not surprisingly, is the banking scandals of recent months. Balfour were covered by RBS, LloydsTSB and HSBC. I now begin to realise that it was not American housing scams but the vested interests of these mega-corporations and their funds that were being touted round the equity markets. Lose those and no bucks to fund their operations or pay The Taliban. Now even if their drug income is substantial, bleeding the West of their cash is still good business. Meanwhile our troops continue on a mission and are in harms way for what? I'll put the shovel down for a while. It's like digging up a thousand square miles of mint!
Tomorrow may well be French flavoured mint and an old chum of Mandy's.
