HSBC ACCUSED OF LAUNDERING OVER £5M DIRECTLY TO TORY HQ

HSBC ACCUSED OF LAUNDERING OVER £5MILLION DIRECTLY TO TORY HQ 

Roger Mullin, SNP Treasury spokesperson, has sent a shocking letter to Claire Bassett, Chief Executive of Party and Election Finances at The Electioral Commission. 

In the letter Mr Mullin refers to ‘serious allegations’ made at the HSBC bank AGM.

At the AGM Fionn Travers-Smith from Move Your Money, accused HSBC of giving significant ‘loans to a company called IPGL led by the former Treasurer of the Conservative party & current chair of the Conservative party foundation Mr Michael Spencer.’

‘In essence the allegation was not refuted, was that HSBC loaned to IPGL over £200m from 6th October 2008 onwards. The company was in some financial distress. Despite this it is reported that in excess of £5 million of HSBC loans have been laundered directly to Conservative Headquarters.’

Mr Mullin has called for an immediate investigation into the allegations by The Electioral Commission.

Roger Mullin has asked four key questions that need to be answered as soon as possible, especially as the UK is currently holding a snap General Election.

1. Did HSBC and IPGL inform the Electioral Commission of all donations to the Conservative party during the period IPGL was in receipt of a substantial loan from HSBC?

2. What is the Electioral Commission’s policy where banks loans to companies in distresss are then laundered to party political donations?

3. Will the Electioral Commission launch an immediate investigation into whether electioral law has been broken by HSBC and IPGL since 2008?

4. In the Electioral Commission’s view have such loans any implications for full and proper declarations relating to the 2017 General Election?

The serious nature of these allegations should send shockwaves in Conservative HQ and comes on top of the 2015 Tory Election fraud, with the Crown Prosecution Service set to announce in the next few weeks if anyone will face criminal charges.

Theresa May should be very worried!

​GEORGE OSBORNE GETS HIS REVENGE ON THERESA MAY IN HIS FIRST EDITORIAL FOR THE EVENING STANDARD 😅

#StrongAndStable #WeakAndWobbly

Today former Chancellor George Osborne started his new job as editor of The London Evening standard.

It is widely know that Mr Osborne had a major fall out with the current Prime Minister Theresa May over who would lead the Conservative party and be Prime Minister after David Cameron resigned over the Brexit vote. 

Today was Osborne’s first chance to get his revenge on Theresa May and he didn’t hold back in his editorial.

‘There’s nothing wrong with repeating election campaign slogans; the problem comes when the election campaign amounts to no more than a slogan. If you ask for a blank cheque, don’t be surprised if later it bounces.’

We all look forward to tomorrow’s edition 😅

THE SUN REVEALS WHAT THE TORIES HAVE PLANNED FOR OUR NHS

In today’s (28/04/17) Sun newspaper editorial, the paper attacked our NHS and in doing so revealed how it would like to see the NHS run, after a possible Theresa May landslide General election victory.

The Sun is owned by Worldwide media billionaire Rupert Murdoch, who owns 3 national newspapers and is currently trying to get full control of UK Sky TV.He has massive power and influence over the Conservative party.  Mr Murdoch also helps the Conservative party plant it’s agenda in his flagship newspaper The Sun, read by over 1,666,715m readers.

So today’s editorial comes as no surprise to many from the left. As many people fear that the Tory agenda of destroying our National Health service by running it to the ground, selling it off to the highest bidder and bringing in charges for patients, will become a reality, if Theresa May wins on 8th June.

NEW MET POLICE CHIEF WAS TO BLAME FOR DE MENEZES MURDER

​22/02/17

Amber Rudd, British Home secretary has appointed Cressida Dick to the role of the London Met police Commissioner, the highest post in British policing.

In 2005, Cresssida Dick was in command of the failed operation that led to the killing by the Police of a innocent Brazilian man Jean Charles De Menezes at Stockwell tube station in London.

 The family of Jean Charles de Menezes said Cressida Dick’s part in the 2005 disaster meant she could not “command public confidence” as commissioner of the Metropolitan police.

In a letter to the London Mayor, Sadiq Khan (Who was on the interview panel for Met job) Patricia Armani da Silva, wrote on behalf of her family: “As a family, we have always felt that those at the highest level, the commissioner and those in operational command, should be held responsible for the mistakes and for the misinformation and lies that were told by the police.

“We cannot be expected to accept that the most senior police officer in the country, a post that is expected to uphold the highest standards of professionalism, to command public confidence and ultimately be responsible for ensuring that no police officer acts with impunity, be filled by someone that is clearly tainted by her failure to live up to any of those requirements.” 

“The IPCC [Independent Police Complaints Commission] investigation made strong criticisms of the command structure and the decision-making that took place that day.

“As a family, we have always felt that those at the highest level, the commissioner and those in operational command, should be held responsible for the mistakes and for the misinformation and lies that were told by the police.

“We cannot be expected to accept that the most senior police officer in the country, a post that is expected to uphold the highest standards of professionalism, to command public confidence and ultimately be responsible for ensuring that no police officer acts with impunity, be filled by someone that is clearly tainted by her failure to live up to any of those requirements.”

HAPPY XMAS

From Northumbria police

Our Firearms Support Unit (FSU) have been taking in the fantastic atmosphere of Newcastle’s Christmas market this morning.
It may be a bit chilly out and about but there have been a lot of smiley faces with there being just two more Fridays until Christmas!
Don’t be alarmed if you do see our armed officers, they are there purely for reassurance and to make people feel safe.
These patrols have begun following the announcement from the Home Office last year that armed patrols would be stepped up across the country.
Our FSU officers are just regular police at the end of the day and if you have any concerns make sure you go and have a chat.

​THE CHANCELLOR’S BIG ‘CON’ ON THE NATIONAL LIVING WAGE!

​THE CHANCELLOR’S BIG ‘CON’ ON THE NATIONAL LIVING WAGE!

The chancellor will unveil in the autumn statement, that the National living wage will rise to £7.50 an hour in 2017. He will use this announcement to feed into the spin that the government are on the side of the “just about managing” – or “Jams”.

But according to forecasts by the independent Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR), an advisory public body established by the UK government to provide independent economic forecasts, the National living wage should go up to £7.60 in 2017, if it is to reach the government pledge of £9.00 an hour by 2020.

So Philip Hammond is in fact making a cut to the lowest paid workers wages by 10p an hour.

NEWSPAPERS OF THE ‘LEFT’ SHOW TRUE COLOURS!

ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER ANTI-CORBYN STORY!

By Aran MacDermott

Since last September when Jeremy Corbyn was elected leader of the Labour party by the largest percentage of votes in the party’s history.

The Left-wing mainstream Newspapers  the Guardian and Daily Mirror have been luke warm at best towards Jeremy Corbyn and his mandate from Labour members to move the direction of the party back to its roots, to be more democratic and move away from the ideas of ‘New’ Labour.

Last month, in the aftermath and chaos of the UK public voting to leave the EU.’New’ Labour MP’s seized their moment to try and trigger a coup against Mr Corbyn. He caught wind of the plot and sacked the ring leader Hilary Benn.

We all know what followed Shadow Cabinet Ministers resigning, 172 MP’s voting for a motion of no confidence in the Leader, 10,000’s holding rallys across the Country in support of Corbyn, over 200,000 new members, Chilcot, the Trade Unions backing Corbyn and a Leadership challege..

So how have the two main left-wing newpapers in the Country, chosen to refect this historic battle for the soul of the Labour movement?

This was the Daily Mirror’s advice to Jeremy Corbyn last week…

Both The Guardian and Daily Mirror’s editorial line that ‘ Jeremy Corbyn should step down’ goes against their own research that shows their readership do not agree with them.

Today after weeks of inaction Angela Eagle is set to announce that she will force a Leadership race with or maybe without Jeremy Corbyn on the ballot paper.

Here is how Today’s Guardian ‘report’ it..

And Daily Mirror

JEREMY CORBYN- “UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL..”

JEREMY CORBYN STATEMENT
30th June 2016

” United we stand, divided we fall is one of the oldest and truest slogans of the labour movement.

After last week’s referendum, our country faces major challenges. Risks to the economy and living standards are growing. The public is split.

The Government is in disarray. Ministers have made it clear they have no exit plan, but are determined to make working people pay with a new round of cuts and tax rises.

Labour has the responsibility to give a lead where the Government will not. We need to bring people together, hold the Government to account, oppose austerity and set out a path to exit that will protect jobs and incomes.

To do that we need to stand together. Since I was elected leader of our party nine months ago, we have repeatedly defeated the Government over its attacks on living standards. Last month, Labour become the largest party in the local elections. In Thursday’s referendum, a narrow majority voted to leave, but two thirds of Labour supporters backed our call for a Remain vote.

I was elected leader of our party, for a new kind of politics, by 60% of Labour members and supporters.  The need for that different approach now is greater than ever.

Our people need Labour Party members, trade unionists and MPs to unite. As leader it is my continued commitment to dedicate our party’s activity to that goal.”

CAMERON IS LOBBYING TO ALLOW CARMAKERS TO BREAK AIR POLLUTION LIMITS UNTIL 2021!!

CAMERON IS LOBBYING TO ALLOW CARMAKERS TO BREAK AIR POLLUTION LIMITS UNTIL 2021!!

After the #COP15 agreement was signed, the UK Prime Minster David Cameron said:
“We’ve secured our planet for many, many generations to come – and there is nothing more important than that.”

And only months after Volkswagen  admitted that the diesel emissions scandal was the result of a collection of failures within the company.

We learn that the UK government have been pushing for a weakening of air pollution limits and a delay to their introduction in response to lobbying from the motor industry, documents reveal.

The government’s papers called for carmakers to be allowed to far exceed the nitrogen oxides (NOx) limit of 80mg/km until 2021, and to be allowed to go 40% over the current limit after that.

Alan Andrews, a lawyer for ClientEarth, said: “The decision to water down vehicle emission standards was a political stitch-up by the commission and an unelected committee of technocrats that will force us all to breathe illegal levels of air pollution for years to come. These rules are illegal and should be vetoed by the European parliament. If they fail to, the British government should take legal action to strike them down.

The Department for the Environment and Rural Affairs (Defra) has accepted that more than 50,000 people a year die prematurely as a result of air pollution in the UK. The figure includes about 29,000 deaths hastened by inhaling minute particles of oily, unburnt soot emitted by all petrol engines and an estimated 23,500 by the invisible but toxic gas NOx emitted by diesel engines.
