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.

HOME SECRETARY AMBER RUDD FACES ALLEGATION IN TORY ELECTION EXPENSES SCANDAL.

Ms Rudd posted a version of the same ad on her YouTube page on March 29, 2015, with the slogan changed from ‘Recovering Economy: Don’t Let Labour Wreck It’ to ‘Unemployment down by 1,921 in Hastings and Rye since 2010.’

B heard media have learnt that a controversial wraparound advert that appeared on the front page of the local newpaper, the Hastings Observer, just a week before the General election was paid for by the Conservative party national election campaign despite being aimed directly at local voters.

The Crown Prosecution service must decide in the next few weeks if anyone should face criminal charges over the Tory election expenses scandal.

Now with the announcement that banking whistleblower Nicholas Wilson will stand as an Independent candidate against Amber Rudd, in her constituency of Hastings and Rye, in the general election. The hope is that the media will be forced to focus on the alleged election fraud.

UNITE UNION CONDEMN TOM WATSON

20/03/17


On Monday morning Tom Watson, Deputy Leader of the Labour party, said Grassroots Labour group Momentum is hoping to get financial support from Britain’s largest trade union, Unite.

He said on BBC Radio 4’s Today “enough is enough, this has got to stop… I’m afraid there are some people who do not have our electoral interests at heart”.

Mr Watson said: “We have never seen the biggest union organising a political faction in the Labour Party with the tacit approval of the leadership.”

Mr Watson said he had a duty to “call out” what appeared to be a “secret plan” to take over the Labour Party and he urged Mr McCluskey to publicly state Unite would not fund Momentum under his leadership.

The Unite Union issued the following statement: 

“As Unite has made it clear it is exclusively for our executive council to determine which organisations we affiliate to. There are no plans for Unite to affiliate to Momentum. For the record, Len McCluskey has never met Jon Lansman to discuss this or any other matter. 

“It is extraordinary that the deputy leader of the Labour party should  interfere in Unite’s democracy in this way, and it is very disappointing that he was allowed to make his unsupported claims without being challenged, and that the BBC ignored the Unite statement with which it had been provided well in advance. 

“Mr Watson’s latest, and misguided, campaign is part of an unprecedented pattern of interference in the current Unite general secretary election by elected Labour politicians who should, frankly, be concentrating on their own responsibilities. 

“Mr Watson is a Unite member with a right to a vote and a view. But he should remember that, first, he is deputy leader of the Labour party with the obligations that this senior post imposes, and second that Unite is not a subsidiary of any political organisation.”

Unite has complained to the BBC Radio 4 Today programme that the statement the union provided in good faith last night was only used in part and following representations from the union this morning. The union has also complained that Mr Watson was allowed to make his extraordinary claims about Unite and its general secretary without being subject to any demand for evidence.”

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.

CHILDREN IN ‘CALAIS CRISIS’ ARE ARRESTED. WHERE IS AMBER RUDD?!

​Amber Rudd, the UK Home secretary, has remained silent over the accelerating crisis in Calais, France.Where the French authorities have been accused of the mistreatment of child refugees, many, whom have the right to live in the UK.

On Wednesday French authorities announced the Calais ‘Jungle’ was “clear” and declared the closure a success, but charities and volunteers on the ground said more than 1,000 people remain in and around the camp, including hundreds of children who have not been through the registration process.

Josie Naughton, of charity Help Refugees, said: “The authorities stopped registering children at around midday today, saying the container camp was full, and sent around 300 to 400 children, including under-13s, back to the Jungle.”

40% of the ‘Jungle’ was burnt down earlier in the day and the children were forced to sleep out in the open.

Caroline Gregory of Calais Action, a British charity, said:”We were begging the French authorities to actually do something about the refugee children and nothing was done,” 

The situation for child refugees in Calais has got alot worse today. This morning the Police started to round up any child without a wristband, arrest them and take them away in vans.

Help refugees, a charity working with child refugees, said: ‘This morning children were told to go to the registration warehouse where they queued peacefully for hours this morning. They were then told they would not yet be registered and were sent back to outside the container camp, where they are refusing to let them enter without wristbands. 

Police have now been arresting and forcibly removing children with no explanation or translators. This has happened to children with and without wristbands. We are told those without wristbands were taken to the PAF ‘Police Anti Frontier’ & told as they didn’t have wristbands they are seen as a criminal threat. Please alert your MP that the home office must do more on the ground protect.’

Amber Rudd has failed to take any action to protect children, who have the right to live in the UK.

The UK Home Office said French authorities were responsible for “all children in Calais during the clearance operation – including those being assessed for possible transfer to the UK”
