Welcome to Peter Eyre's Space

Thank you for joining my space. The world is truly a remarkable and beautiful place but somehow we have lost our direction. Why can't we all get on together and live in peace? Why so much agression and no compassion or love for each other? Why do our leaders want to wage war in order to gain an economic advantage in controlling the natural resources of our planet? Why do such nations as the USA allow the manufacturing of weapons containing uranium components and yet profess that they are promoting disarmament? Who do they, the UK, European Countries and Israel insist in using these WMD's. I sincerely wanted to welcome you all in such a very nice and gentle way but I carry so much pain for the innocent men, women and children of past and current war zones that have sucumbed to these evil uranium weapons. We must all try to prohibit DU/EU or any other "Dirty Weapon" and learn to live in peace. We in the west have to close all bases that exist on Islamic soil and learn to trade instead of fighting. So I again welcome you to "Peter's Space" If you support war in any shape or form please do not enter my space. If you are a Christian Zionist or Jewish Zionist please do not enter my space. If however you are against war and any form of intimidation you are most welcome to take over my space.

The US - Israeli Governments again talks verbal diarrhoea

The world again has to listen to the Israeli spin machine at its best with the latest comments from its Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: “New talks with the Palestinians will lead to a peace deal only if Israel's vital interests are protected.”
This again shows the one sided arrogance of this apartheid regime.

This reminded me of a Palestinian trying to explain that a particular house and its surroundings had been in his families name for over a thousands years and was now totally surrounded by Israeli high rise development that overlooked his historic property. He went on to say that this was long before the Jewish settlers arrived from Russia and other parts of Europe.

The purpose of inserting the above paragraph is to add some meaning into the one way propaganda that flows from the mouths of many senior Israeli politicians. We have heard this same spin for many decades and one can fully understand why the Palestinians are so reluctant to enter into any direct peace talks with the Israeli Government.

What we hear is the same story time and time again and yet the promised peace never comes because Israel considers the entire area that was previously known as Palestine. as their territory. So let’s turn back the clock and take a look at one particular map that showed the original settlements that existed and how at the time only one tiny speck on the map was for new Jewish arrivals. One can clearly see how this eventually became a cancerous growth as Zionism took possession of Palestinian land.

Many US Presidents have used the Israeli – Palestinian issue to their own advantage to launch some PR exercise, the last one being Obama. But let’s make it clear that there is no “Road Map To Peace” but rather political spin. What I find very disturbing is the fact that the US and Israel appear to work in partnership in and attempt to resolve this divide but nothing ever changes. Surely after all these years of false promises that it should be up to the United Nations to broker a peace agreement.

The UN have the power to determine legal international borders, they have the power to clarify the maritime limits through there organisation UNCLOS and they have the power to insist that Israel ceases to exploit Palestine’s vast offshore gas reserves etc. The United Nations has the power to immediately put in place their “blue helmet” peace keeping force and immediately lift the air, sea and land blockade. The United Nations has the power to give Palestine full sovereignty and immediately upon doing so remove Israeli IDF/Security forces from the entire West Bank territory.

When will the UN stop the US from assuming the role of being the “World’s Police Force”- it is the responsibility of the UN to do this and it is about time that the UN realised that it is no longer possible for negotiations to take place between Israel and Palestine who have for some time become arch enemies with a wound that is too deep to heal.

So let’s look at another map showing the ongoing land grab that has progressively taken place. You will note just how quickly this land grab took place and continues to take place. Doesn’t it appear strange that back in 1878 Zionist were just a tiny speck on the map and now Zionism has consumed most of Palestine and now that tiny speck is fast becoming Palestine (the true owner of the land).

Before we move onto these maps let’s just see how the political spin has now become a major player in the US Presidents current stance and obviously has no substance:
U.S. President Barack Obama told Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas that he was committed to seeing the creation of a sovereign Palestinian state within two years. Obama promised Abbas that the United States would make great effort to help see that the Palestinian goal was achieved. However, as usual Israel rejected special U.S. envoy George Mitchell's proposal to withdraw Israel Defense Forces troops from Palestinian-occupied sections of the West Bank, which incidentally it also did on the eve of the Second Intifada in 2000. As I have said before when will the United Nations stand firm and stop this pathetic act of false promises?

We will now advance the clock a little and take a look at another historical map to show how this cancerous growth started and how it vigorously spread in a very short period of time to consume a land that was never their own.

Even at this stage the growth was fairly controllable up to and including 1920 when the British Mandate was in full force, but as you will see this didn’t last for long.
Suddenly someone decided that it was time to carve up Palestine and give the Zionist there own territory. This change dramatically changed Palestine forever as you will see in the maps that followed. It was painfully clear that very powerful Zionist were using their financial clout to make Palestine a permanent home for the Jewish people living in Europe and this trend signaled the demise of the Palestinian people.

Things really started to change dramatically just before WW2 when in 1937 and again in 1938 major changes were being suggested as the two maps below demonstrate. Just think how you would feel if some far away religious group that consisted of millions of people decided to progressively settle and occupy the United Kingdom. How would the people in the UK feel if they were forced to split and be pushed in the enclaves of Wales and Scotland with England becoming the home of the invaders? How would you feel, as a result of this split, if you could not access your fellow countrymen with no connecting corridor? I already know the answer; the English would take up armed resistance. So really is there any difference in the situation in Palestine? Unfortunately there is a very big difference because the Zionist, both Jewish and Christian, are huge in number and truly believe that all Jews should be allowed to return to Palestine (which is now Israel).

There are around 40 million Christian Zionist in the US who continuously promote the return of the Jews and also openly promote Israel to attack Iran. These evil minded people really are no friend to Israel as there belief is totally the opposite:
Christian Zionists believe that when all Jews are gathered in Israel, Jesus will reappear; there are varying "end times" scenarios for what follows. Christian Zionism is an extreme modern apocalyptic movement that shares with Nazi philosophy and seek the eventual dismantling of the Jewish people and Jewish faith - Nazism by death and Christian Zionism by conversion to Christianity of a remnant of Jews, who will finally learn their "lesson" from the death of most of the Jewish people at Armageddon. Add to these millions, members of many other churches, such as the Anglican Church and one can see the power that lies under their grasp. If one adds to this power the huge Jewish Zionist movement and the politically powerful AIPAC and the “Friends of Israel” groups that infiltrate all political parties in the US, UK and EU and its easy to see that the poor people of Palestine really do have a significant force stacked up against them.

Both sides are already in disagreement (even before talks have commenced) with Israel being more aggressive. Netanyahu has stipulated that he will not even enter into border disputes etc until such time as the security of Israel is guaranteed. One would assume that in order to move forward in a peaceful way the aggressor should make it clear that it will allow the correct international borders (both and land and sea) to be determined via the UN and UNCLOS. I would also add to this the fact that the location and the extent of the offshore gas fields should also be part of any peace discussions. It is painfully evident that Israel is already or about to steal the natural resources that belong to Palestine or that may well be jointly owned.

The greatest transformation for the people of Palestine occurred after the war when the territory was carved up in a senseless barbaric way leaving the people of Palestine with little land and what they did own was and continues to be totally controlled by Israel, even though it is supposed to be under self governance.

The West Bank for example is slowly being carved up with around two thirds being off limits to the owner (Palestine). To add insult to injury Israel insists on remaining in place on the West Bank – Jordan border. They also have influential control of the Egyptian – Gaza border which basically gives the Palestinian no international border.
This map clearly shows that since that first tiny Zionist speck in 1878 it has become a cancerous growth that is taking over the body of Palestine in a very aggressive way and now the very people that were victims of the Holocaust are creating another progressive genocide on the original owners of the land.
I can assure you that like all the other decades of US – Israel promises, nothing will change and Israel will continue to expand until the true dwellers (Palestinians) of the land have been removed. This is the wish of both Christian Zionists and Jewish Zionist.

From my perspective I would ask the United Nations and the People of the World to look into the eyes of this Palestinian family and ask yourself is this true democracy and do they have the right to exist in their own land? Does this family have the right to food, clean air and clean water? According to the ethos of the United Nations the answer to that is most certainly yes. However, in the eyes of the Israelis the answer is no.

We, as citizens of this planet, must insist that the United Nations fulfills its obligations to the countries that it represents and takes action to enforce a peaceful settlement in Palestine. They became involved in Lebanon during the 2006 conflict but they have failed the people of Palestine in an extremely cruel way. Their current existence in Gaza is only a PR exercise so as to appear they are truly concerned. They have failed in their duty of care for its people and they have failed in allowing reconstruction programmes to be undertaken before carrying out a feasibility study of the Gaza Strip which is now totally contaminated by weapons containing uranium components. This is against there own protocol.

When will the British have a true leader?

When will the British have a government that serves the people?
When will we stop our aggressive foreign policy?

Part 5(Final)

In my last article (Part 4) I covered the circumstances leading up to the death of Dr David Kelly and covered certain aspects of the Hutton Report. I think it is therefore relevant to mention some other concerns that also occurred around this time.

Let’s just run over some questions that were being bounced around at the time

Why are so many medical professionals saying that he could not have died from severing the ulnary artery and the fact that one would assume that clotting of the blood would have taken place before significant amounts of blood were lost. One would also assume that because of this one would normally have tested for any clotting disorder?
• Why was little blood found at the scene if he lost his life due to excessive blood loss?
• Why Did Lord Hutton deny access to Dr Kelly’s records for a period of 70 years?

Some very senior medical professionals have added their voice of concern namely:
Dr Michael J Powers, QC, Barrister, Medical Practitioner and Examiner to the Faculty of Forensic Law and Medicine of the Royal College of Physicians.

Professor Julian Bion, Professor of Intensive Care Medicine, Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.

Dr Margaret Bloom, Barrister, former General Medical Practitioner and former Deputy Coroner.

Dr Neville Davis, MBE. Consultant Forensic Physician,.

Dr Elizabeth Driver, Solicitor and Fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists.

Sir Barry Jackson, past President British Academy of Forensic Sciences.

Dr David Payne-James, Consultant Forensic Physician and Honorary Senior Lecturer, Cameron Forensic Medical Sciences, Bart and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry.

Denis Wilkins, retired Consultant Vascular Surgeon.

As one can see these distinguished medical experts had very deep concerns regarding the autopsy findings and why this particular autopsy report was suppressed. Many had other areas of concern, namely:

No fingerprints were found on the knife Dr Kelly is alleged to have used.

No coroner’s inquest has ever been held into his death. The only official verdict came from the Hutton Inquiry, a non-statutory public inquiry at which witnesses did not give evidence under oath.

Dr Powers stated that the inquiry into the cause of Dr Kelly’s death was inadequate and resulted in an implausible conclusion.

It was the opinion of all of the experts that his death was not due to hemorrhage.
The team of professionals were also concerned that Lord Hutton secretly classified all medical and scientific records relating to Dr Kelly – including the post-mortem examination report and photo of his body – for 70 years.

A female colleague who served with him in Iraq, Mai Pederson, says a hand and arm injury had left him ‘too weak’ to cut his own wrist.

The detective, who helped find Dr Kelly’s body, Graham Coe, gave an interview in which he revealed he lied about aspects of the evidence he gave to the Hutton inquiry. Mr. Coe, 63, who is now retired from Thames Valley Police, said there was very little blood at the scene. He also confirmed the disputed existence of a ‘third man’ with him and his partner DC Colin Shields that day. If you all can recall we mentioned this mysterious person in my last article (possible secret service operative).

At the Hutton inquiry Mr. Coe said he had been accompanied by only one other officer – DC Shields – but he now says there had also been a trainee police officer with him, whom he refused to name.

Another interest fact was that a Police search helicopter with heat seeking devices onboard flew over the spot where Dr Kelly’s body was found at 0250 am on July the 18th. The pathologist who took Dr Kelly core body temperature determined that he would have been alive at 0115 which was only 95 minutes before the helicopter flew over the wooded area. Why didn’t the helicopter pick up body heat with its sensor and especially when Dr Kelly was known to have walked in this area? (One of his favourite walks). Does this mean that Kelly did not die at this location?

It was also mentioned, as is always the case, that the police normally erect a tent over the scene. This is done for many reasons – to secure the scene for forensic testing and also to keep the media’s/public eyes away from the scene. Don’t you think that the fact he died deep inside the small wooded area the tent would have been partially hidden from overhead media helicopter. As you can see from this picture the tent was in actual fact outside the wooded area, so where did he actually die( most reports say he died in the wood.

I guess the question we all need to ask is Did Blair or Bush authorize the removal of the extremely dedicated man, who served his country well, to then become a “Whistle Blower”? There are so many rumours from Intel involvement on both sides of the pond and even someone saying the US Navy Seals were implicated.

We should also add one more name to the small nucleus of people involved with Dr Kelly (Tony Blair and his illustrious adviser Alistair Campbell), the arrogant Defence Secretary, Geoff Hoon. Before we bring this perpetual liar into the fray we should refresh out minds on Dr Kelly’s dealings with the media.

It was on 22 May 2003 that Dr David Kelly had met the BBC defence correspondent Andrew Gilligan in a London hotel to discuss his concerns regarding the government’s intention of going to war with Iraq and the sexed up Iraq Dossier written by the other scumbag Alistair Campbell.

It became obvious at this stage that in spilling the beans, Dr Kelly was about to ruin his own carrier and also possible loose his pension, which would have been substantial at the time. The other aspect was the fact that this could also cause him serious charges under the Official Secrets Act.

The Ministry of Defence promised that his identity would be kept secret. However, this policy was eventually reversed and his name was quite deliberately put into the public domain, which is where Geoff Hoon comes into the story.

The House of Commons foreign affairs committee had completed taking evidence for its inquiry into the accuracy of the information provided by the government in the run-up to the war with Iraq. Gilligan and Alastair Campbell had both provided evidence but Campbell took this opportunity to launch an attack against Gilligan and the BBC accusing them of lying (the pot calling the kettle!!).The committee then called Kelly as a witness and within a few days he was found dead.

It was during this period of time and for some years after that Tony Blair, Geoff Hoon, Alistair Campbell and Gordon Brown would continue to cover up the events leading up to the Gulf War and during the Gulf War. This resulted in the Hutton Inquiry turning into an absolute farce with the truth being hidden under lock and key for another 70 years.

I cannot close before giving mention to the current Chilcot Inquiry (Iraq Inquiry) which seems to be following the same trend as all the previous government inquires. It always appears that despite the huge costs associated with these inquiries they always end up protecting all those in government positions with the occasional wrap on the knuckles. We hear the same words coming out of the lips of these hardened liars, such as “That in hindsight we would probably have made some changes and certainly we have learnt from this mishap.” Whatever the outcome I am sure that Dr Kelly was about the reveal the secrets of the stolen nuclear weapons and that could have toppled both the Conservative Party and the Labour Party.

When will the British have a true leader?

When will the British have a government that serves the people?
When will we stop our aggressive foreign policy?

Part 4

Before we move on to some more very dark areas of politics we must discuss the topic that is hot on the agenda at the moment…..that of the apparent suicide of Dr David Kelly. We all know that this was most certainly an arranged assassination by someone of high standing within the UK and may also have involved the USA.

If we can also recall Princess Dianne also met a sudden death and many rumours were around at the time that she, like Dr Kelly, knew too much about illegal arms dealings and met with the same fate.

So how much did Dr Kelly know and what made him such a target for our political leaders? We know that he was directly involved in Chemical and Biological Warfare having been responsible for Porton Down and also having hosted many of his counterparts from South Africa. We also know that he was the government representative that signed off those illegal Battlefield Nuclear Bombs that were smuggled out of South Africa and shipped to Oman. It was Dr Kelly who carried out the final inspection on those weapons before the money was paid to that shonky arms dealer John Bredenkamp. We also know that Dr Kelly formed part of the weapons inspection team in Iraq and knew that Alistair Campbell had sexed up the Iraq Dossier that was so vital to Blair in making that terrible decision.

Dr Kelly unfortunately was in the wrong place at the wrong time and knew too much for the government to feel at ease with him. I am sure he also knew of the 17.8 million pounds (British Tax Payers money) that was stolen and then handed to the Conservative Party for their election fund. It was Dr Kelly who started challenging the reasons for going to war and threatened to become a whistleblower via the media. One can clearly see that he was certainly on the government’s hit list (as are many people who had previously worked in Intel, MoD or DTI). So let’s look into this mans past and see just how much he really knew.

Perhaps it would be fitting to explain what was happening to Dr David Kelly just prior to his death in the words of Gordon Bowden who is an expert in investigating the paper trail of Bogus Companies – Non Existent Mines or Drilling Locations. Gordon like many of the dedicated few in this world only seek to reveal the truth, especially when senior political figures are involved such as the notorious Tony Blair and the working of that shady complex known as 22 Arlington Street, London (which hopefully I will cover in another series at a later date).

This was Gordon’s summary in his own words:
Dr David Kelly was the overseer Scientist of Thatcher’s Conservative Government "Private" Funded requisition of 3 x 200 Kt Battlefield Plutonium Bombs from the Apartheid Government of RSA in 1991. The deal, conducted when a young David Cameron was sent by Thatcher to RSA to seal the purchase. Orchestrated through Lord McAlpine, Sir Brian Wyldbore Smith,Jonathan Aitken, Sir Mark Thatcher, MP Peter Lilley, MI6 Stephan Kock a.k.a. Stepahnus Adolphus Kock and a host of Private Conservative Grandee financial backers. The Bombs were sold via Kleptomaniac Weapons Dealer John Bredenkamp.

In the early 1980's South Africa had been part of a Joint Venture with Israeli Scientist to manufacture in total, 10 Battlefield 200Kt Plutonium Bombs at Secret Military Research Establishment Pelindaba, near Pretoria. I(One) Test Detonated in the Indian Ocean, South of RSA at Prince Edward Island on 22 September 1989
That left 9.

With RSA Apartheid Government about to be handed over to the "Terrorist" Black ANC, both USA and UK requested Botha's Government to remove the remaining 9 Bombs. It was agreed, 6 were to be sent directly to the USA for de-commissioning, where the Fissile material was to be removed and sent back to RSA so the new ANC Government could use it later in a Nuclear Dis-armament Propaganda PR Exercise.
The other 3 Purchased by Thatcher and her Conservative Cronies, for possible use against Saddam should he use Chemical or Gas weapons in the retake of Kuwait (Gulf War 1).

The exchange of "CASH" For 3 "BOMBS” transfer conducted in DURBAN Harbour. All 9 Packed into 20Foot ISO Containers. 6 onward bound to USA.
3 to OMAN where they were signed off by Dr David Kelly as 3 MOD "CYLINDERS" "ARRIVED IN ORDER" To be held over for the Entirety of Gulf War 1. So, what went wrong!

Well, John Bredenkamp was not called a Kleptomaniac for nothing, the wheeler dealer stole them back again moving them in Ambulances out of their Poor Security held compound Location. He then sold them on the OPEN Market.
Now, unfortunately for ALL those involved in this CRIMINAL, COVERT Purchase and subsequent LOSS of 3 Plutonium Bombs, one of those re-Stolen by Bredenkamp was DETONATED by NORTH KOREA on 25 May 2009.
AND THAT IS WHY, ALL those involved in this Monumental Criminal WAR CRIME Deal had to get rid of the Links (DR DAVID KELLY)and the Paper-work threads, as per the MI5 / MI6 RAID and Seizure at Dr David Kelly's Home and Offices, of his Files, Computers and Documents. (THE CLEANING BRIGADE)
They made a massive Mistake. As with any crime involving "LOTS OF WONGA"

Derby MP Margaret Beckett and the Labour Party found it. THE PROOF.
Q & A Parliamentary Report HANSARD 22 June 1993 From Col 197
THE MONEY LAUNDERING TRAIL. The CRITICAL Questions to the Conservative Party. From WHOM and WHERE did the donation to Conservatives Party Coffer account of £17.8 Million come from for the 1992 Election Campaign.
The Answer, From a Front Company of: JOHN BREDENKAMP.

I have met with Gordon Bowdon and find his knowledge of investigating bogus companies and frauds is second to none and the two of use once visited a political party workshop and together we provided evidence to a Member of Parliament (MP) for further investigation. I have no doubt the evidence we provided will be swept under the carpet. All I can say is that if this is the case, they do not know Gordon very well…..he will continue to track them down and where possible put them out of business.

Back to the Dr Kelly story - I read another comment which I though really did make sense: A witnesses spoke about a man in a suite. This had previously been denied and now admitted but we are told it was a trainee officer that cannot be named?

What immediately came to mind is that this person could have been a facilitator who was there at David Kelly's death (most likely with others) and who was responsible for overseeing the cover up (moving of the body from the original scene of the crime separates the body from possible forensics information). It is necessary to use a little imagination to construct a possible scenario that makes sense.

The facilitator would not want to take the chance of being seen together with the muscle used to move David Kelly from the original scene of the crime to the place where he was to be found. The muscle would have laid David Kelly out on the ground. (Well he is dead isn't he?) When the facilitator arrives at the scene under cover with the first response he sees that it is necessary to reposition David in a position that would be more convincing to help the support for suicide. It is interesting that agents in America are referred to as suits.

As you can see from such comments there are certainly areas of concern and especially the fact that Lord Hutton ruled that all medical records and unpublished evidence relating to Dr. Kelly's death are to remain classified for up to 70 years. This ruling is most unusual in regard to normal post - mortem practices. Many doctors have questioned the conclusion reached at the Hutton Inquiry which I will cover later.

We should look at another account of what was happening in the South African/Britain missing nukes scam and fully understand the important role that Dr Kelly played. The author of this account will remain nameless and you will clearly see how Dr Kelly became involved in this covert operation:
The South African government held talks at Mels Park House in Somerset in the summer of 1989. The series of meeting included the attendance of Nelson Mandela before he was released from prison; this in itself gives some indication of the corrupt workings of governments and also of Mandela’s direct involvement.

Mandela became very much involved in the pre take over and it was a known fact that he had borrowed 5 billion for arms which suggests the deal was made during the conferences in Somerset. I myself have given much thought to the current Naomi Campbell story regarding the blood diamond situation. I believe that based on the above facts, it is possible that blood diamonds from West Africa are being used in return for arms from South Africa, which if true, really does bring Mandela into disrepute.

The South African Government was in a state of panic when it became obvious that their apartheid regime was going to collapse and they therefore confided in Maggie Thatcher the fact that they had nine atomic bombs, and that they would pay for her to send people down (in secret) to see discuss this situation as it was of grave concern to the government that these bombs could end up in the hands of the blacks.
David Cameron (then only 24 years of age) was sent down to South Africa by his working mum for a free jolly at the expense of ARMSCOR (the South African arms trading company). Ken Warren was also involved in this trip with the DTI (under the control of Peter Lilley) as the overseers.

The biggest problem was how to move these weapons from the nuclear facility in Pelindarba to Durban and then by onward shipment to the US. It was at this stage that of the nine remaining battlefield nuclear bombs, three would be purchased by the British Government for possible use against Saddam Hussain. It was arranged that six of the weapons would go directly to Chicago, US and three would go to Oman for storage and possible later usage on Iraq.

It was at this point of the proceeding that Thatcher and many other senior politicians realized that some serious money could be made from this exercise. The government of the day (Conservative Party) had therefore had to implement some way of concealing this shipment in order to get them from South Africa – Oman.
It was therefore decided that this would be a low key operation and that the manifest would show them as three cylinders that would be concealed in standard 20 foot sea containers. They were to be loaded in some backyard arrangement at a railway siding and sent to Oman without the government in opposition knowing about them or the British public.

However, it was not that easy as the engineering required to move these bombs via a standard sea container required good quality engineering skill and design. The engineering was carried out by a British company who designed the special cradle required to secure the weapons.

It became obvious that serious money was required in order to set the ball rolling and this is where politicians chipped in and formed a private sector investment company to handle the initial setting up with none other than Mark Thatcher, the son of the Prime Minister taking a leading role. There had to be certain conditions met before the British Government would release any money, hence the launch of an operating fund in the meantime.

So the scene was set for this remarkable scam to take to the road (or should I say to thesea). The nine warheads had tremendous value and obviously Thatcher, Lilley, Warren and Cameron etc knew that this would be a good opportunity to get Tax Payer’s money diverted offshore and then back into the coffers of the Conservative Party Election Funds. It also gave access to the notorious arms dealer John Bredenkamp to earn himself much money as it did for the private investors.

Everyone at the time believed that all nine warheads would be sent directly from Durban to the US. However a select few in the Conservative Part knew otherwise as did the US and the Intel services.

This entire episode involved many people including senior South African politicians, Lord Alistair Mc Alpine, many senior Conservative politicians, the DTI, MoD, Mark Thatcher and his investment group, Astra, ARMSCOR and John Bredekamps company Casalee. So the scene was set for this unscrupulous bunch of thieves to secure for themselves millions of Tax Payer’s money and at the same time securing 17.8 million for their 1992 election campaign.

Thatcher was obviously delighted that her son would be involved but may have not been so amused that daughter Carol was having an affair with none other than Jonathan Aitkin a very senior Conservative politician (who was also involved in shonky arms dealings)……oh well “All is fair in love and war.”

So now the scene is set for the purchase of three cylinders, the camouflage for the contained warheads, at a fixed price to be delivered to Oman. This procurement would then move into the Department for Trade and Industry (DTI) to be signed off. The DTI would then contact the contracts branch at MOD, Sloane Square, to draw up a contract in the name of the MOD, acting as agents for the DTI.

The minister who signed the Urgent Operational Requirement (UOR), which is a fast track way of moving something very quickly without going through Parliament, was non other than Peter Lilly who headed the DTI at the time. The other person to sign was Stephen Kock on behalf of the Astra Group, who would implement it via John Bredenkamp’s company Casalee, and a government agent who would sign off all the invoices after the three cylinders had arrived in Oman…. enter Dr David Kelly, the only man with the qualifications to act as agent.
Kelly would have had a letter of comfort and instruction from Peter Lilly the head of the DTI, explaining there was a UOR to buy three atomic bombs, which for security purposes were named cylinders, and that he, Kelly, would monitor everything from the bombs being placed into the transit cradles, in South Africa, to their unloading in Oman.

Dr Kelly would be under the impression that these warheads may have to be used, so compartmentalising the information David Kelly actually had in relation to the procurement. After the warheads were placed into the cradles and into the containers, the umbilical cord to monitor the temperature of the warheads, the doors shut…Kelly would seal the containers with his seal placed on the padlock. The containers were then moved to a private rail siding, and loaded onto a train and the nine hundred or so miles from Pelindaba near Johannesburg, to the coast of Durban, Kelly would then sign he had seen the containers to this point and would sign again when they arrived in Oman.

With the weapons on the ship and ready to go, at which point private investors money is needed to pay the supplier, or the product isn’t leaving, so from a fund put together by private investors, the balance is paid across to John Bredenkamp’s company which has a head office in Durban, and all is set for transportation to Oman.
Meanwhile this UOR required the signature from Thatcher for the nukes to move - (concealed as cylinders). This was the last act by Thatcher before she left office, apparently without knowledge as to what she had signed off……….do you really believe that?
Maybe now we can truly understand why Dr David Kelly was at the top of the British Governments hit list and why he was assassinated. We can add to this the total scam and cover up of the Hutton inquiry and now we have the Chilcott Inquiry which is already showing signs of being another total failure.

Of the original nine warheads, three went missing, and as of today, only one of the three has been accounted for, that being the Nuclear Test carried out by North Korea in 2009.

The final Part 5 will cover what happened after the arrival of Tony Blair in office and later the best Chancellor and Prime Minister in the world (or so he says!) Gordon Brown. I will also cover some of the mysteries associated with the death of Dr Kelly

Stay tuned for another failed inquiry and the possible re opening of the circumstances leading to Dr David Kelly’s apparent suicide?
Peter Eyre – Middle East Consultant – 19/8/2010

When will the British have a true leader?

When will the British have a government that serves the people?
When will we stop our aggressive foreign policy?

Part 3

In my last article we revealed the level of deceit and corruption that exists at all levels of the political arena and finished up discussing the various scam inquiries that failed to produce the goods. What should have been an inquiry to reveal the corruption or failings of leaders and their government actually cleared them of any wrong doing and wasted valuable tax payer’s money in doing so.

Before leaving the Astra Story and the missing nuclear bombs we should listen to some of the words spoken by Astra’s ex boss Gerald James who had a wonderful insight into government corruption and how a massive covert web became involved in illegal arms dealings at a time when there were many sanctions in place.

This is an extract as publicised by Gerald James and I have decided to print it in full so that members of the public can clearly see the evil workings of governments, whereby on the surface they enforce sanctions but at the same time covertly wheel and deal in arms trading with the country they have sanctions against:

My experiences, the Scott Inquiry, the British Legal System
By Gerald Reaveley James

I am reminded of the very appropriate quote from Edmund Burke (1729-97) “It is necessary only for the good man to do nothing for evil to triumph.”

I am most grateful to Dr Badsha for inviting me and honoured to make this address at this Conference of the Environmental Law Centre.

The Astra case and my case reflect much that has been to the fore in recent years in not only scandals around arms companies like Astra, Matrix Churchill, Ordtec, Forgemasters, Walter Somers, Ferranti and other companies like Polly Peck, BCCI and Maxwell but also in the Scott Inquiry, the BSE Inquiry and the Lloyds of London affair and other scandals. The underlying problem is secret unaccountable government which bypasses Parliament and how the law is administered in the UK, gives aid and succour to such a state of affairs. The most common device is the concealment of evidence and manipulation of cases. There is a tendency when challenged for those in authority to talk of conspiracy theories. My experience is that those who do so are usually part of the conspiracy.
My company Astra gave rise to much of the circumstances which created the Scott Inquiry, the Supergun revelations (we reported it first), the Aitken affair, the murder of Gerald Bull in Brussels in March 1990 and much else.

My name is Gerald Reaveley James. Until March 1990 and between 1980 and 1990 I was chairman of Astra Holdings PLC (“Astra”) which became a leading ammunition and weapons manufacturer. By the late 1980’s Astra had factories in the United States (9), Canada (2), Belgium (5), United Kingdom (5) and administrative headquarters in Washington Dc, Brussels and London and employed 4,000 personnel.
The story of Astra is too long to recount here but a summary is contained in my book, “In the Public Interest” published by Little Brown UK hardback 1995, Warner paperback 1996, London. Astra became involved in covert weapons and ammunitions operations organised by MI5 and MI6 and the CIA, the MOD, DOD, FCO and the State Department and the DTI. To such an extent was Astra involved with its principal subsidiaries, Walters, Accudyne, Kilgore USA PRB Belgium, and BMARC UK; in the covert trade manipulations of Foreign Policy.

In 1989/90, following a reappraisal of Foreign Policy in the light of the demise of the Cold War and changing circumstances in the Middle East, where it became apparent the US, UK and EEC had transferred Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical weapons technology as well as conventional weapons to countries like Iran and Iraq, and the discovery Pakistan had the atomic bomb, the whole covert network was reorganised. This involved the collapsing of companies like Astra, Ferranti/ISC, Polly Peck, BCCI, Maxwell Group etc and the prosecution of lesser fry Companies and their directors – companies like Matrix Churchill, BNJ, Ordtec, Euromac, SRC, Forgemasters, and Walter Somers are examples. The directors of Astra were to a large extent ignorant of the full range of covert activities carried out in their name but aware of some of these activities and the likely destination of their goods. As however all operations were sanctioned by the DTI, MOD, FCO, and in the US by the DOD and the State Department and in Belgium by the Belgian Government, not too many questions were raised initially.

However, in late 1988 and 1989 it became clear to me as Chairmen that the clandestine operations far exceeded anything remotely sanctioned by the full Board and I set out to investigate in depth. I became aware that certain plants were used to secretly store and ship goods; that monies were being transferred to other operations without book records or board approval in secret commission payments; that our paper work and parallel bank accounts were being used to process arms shipments from major UK defence companies like British Aerospace, Royal Ordnance, GEC Marconi, Thorn EMI etc. A leading British Defence Journalist wrote a report which was largely kept secret which indicated £100m was stolen from the Export Credit Guarantee Department (“ECGD”) in a fictitious subcontract for propellant which BMARC, an Astra subsidiary, had secretly obtained in 1998 from Royal Ordnance.

I also became concerned about payments to and business with MI6/CIA front company Allivane which had occurred between 1983 and 1988 via Astra. Is also became clear that all our main operations were involved in covert operations in the USA Belgium and the UK, and that Astra, when it acquired these companies, had inherited a hard core of MI6, MI5, DIA agents who operated behind the back of the original directors and who treated them as “useful idiots”.

All our main companies were involved with Space Research Corporation (“SRC”) and the late Dr Gerald Bull who was behind the Supergun and other secret projects which Astra companies were also involved in. In 1989 I realised we had a hugely dangerous individual on our main Board and the BMARC Board who was an MI6 agent. This individual, Stephanus Adolphus Kock had high level political connections to Thatcher, Heseltine, Younger, Hanley, etc as well as MI5 and MI6 connections.

It is now clear to me that he was involved in the murder of Dr Gerald Bull in Brussels on 22nd march 1990 and Jonathan Moyle in Santiago, Chile on 31st March 1990. BMARC was the only company outside the Atomic Weapons research Establishment and Government Arms depots with the capability to store nuclear bombs like Redbeard and WE177.

By early 1990 my probing had become a major problem and a plot was hatched to remove me as Chairman shortly before the Supergun and other revelations and Bull’s murder. A new dummy board ld in reality by Kock with two MI6/MI5 stooges ran the company into the ground over the next two years. In order to explain away the destruction of the company with a £350m order book and a market capitalisation of £120m desperate attempts were made to find evidence of malpractice by the original directors. Gumbley, my Managing Director, who had been with Bull until an hour before he was shot had discussed with Bull suing UK Government and senior civil servants using Bull’s extensive knowledge of high level corruption and illegal operations. It had been agreed I would return with Gumbley to agree with lawyers how to proceed a week later. I had discussed such matters with Bull some six months previous but no further action had been taken. Gumbley was immediately framed up for corrupting an MOD official and jailed for 9 months and after desperately trying to find something on me and failing, Kock and MI6/MI5 decided to institute through Peter Lilley and the DTI a DTI Inquiry. Lilley was Secretary of state at the DTI at the time.

The DTI Inquiry lasted three years and cost £2.5m plus (as much as the Scott Inquiry). The announcement of the Inquiry and the misleading press statements issued by the DTI and Government ensured the downfall of Astra. Crooks and MI5, MI6, agents or informers were put in charge of Astra – Kock, Roy Barber FCA and Tony McCann.

Barber and McCann whose managerial and industrial competence and experience were negligible paid themselves £330,000 and £280,000 pa respectively. Barber took £100,000 in the first month. Barber’s annual payment was more than I received in salary and expenses as Chairman over ten years while I built the company. PRB was sold off immediately for £3m to avoid embarrassing revelations. MI5, MI6 and MOD police and Customs launched 17 raids on Astra premises in order to steal any sales and other documentation incriminating Government.

No new orders were obtained in spite of the Gulf War and the company ran on the £350m order book we had left for two years, before it was put into receivership on 2nd February 1992 on the eve of me giving evidence to the House of Commons Trade and Industry Select Committee re Supergun, Project Babylon and arms to Iraq (and Iran etc). Press coverage was hue and adverse. This facilitated, as clearly city interests like Banks and Astra’s main shareholders 3i, Prudential and Clerical and medical cooperated with Government for their own interest and purposes against the interests of smaller shareholders (a parallel with Lloyd’s techniques).
Kock had a cover as a consultant in Midland Bank’s secret arms department, Midland and Industrial Trade Services (”MITS”). This was staffed by ex service officers, MI5, MI6, agents and intelligence affiliated bankers. Midland with the Bank of Boston were Astra’s main bankers and dominated by MI6 CIA agents. Kock was also said to be head of Group 13, the Government’s assassination and dirty tricks squad according to Richard John Rainey Unwin, a close associate of Knock himself who was a contract MI6 agent and Consultant to Astra. Kock and Unwin, with Martin Laing Construction, negotiated the £2bn Malaysian defence deal before George Younger, the Defence Secretary even knew of it.

The MOD police arrested several of my colleagues, framed Grumbley up. I was subjected to harassment, burglaries; I was arrested by Customs, investigated by the Inland Revenue, subjected to surveillance, threats, bugging, telephone tapping (all documented), a DTI Inquiry which lasted 3 years and a DTI prosecution which lasted 4 years. In addition I had to give copious evidence to the Scott Inquiry over 4 years, 2 DTI Select Committees, Foreign Affairs Select Committee, Defence Select Committee, Public Accounts Select Committee, Public Services Select committee, Police (SOI), a huge law suit in the United States (Dooley case).
My family suffered considerably, my two eldest sons army careers suffered, my youngest son’s education because of adverse publicity, my brother was killed in an accident never satisfactory explained which could have been intended for me.
In the course of my own experiences I took considerable note and interest in parallel cases like Matrix Churchill, Ordtec, Euromac, Atlantic Commercial, BNJ, SRC, Forgemasters, Walter Somers, Polly Peck, Foxley Ferranti/ISC, BCCI, Maxwell etc. All these cases and others and the Astra case involved the gross abuse of power by Government and its agencies and servants, concealment of key evidence, intimidation, threats, false and selective prosecutions, manipulation of evidence, perversion of the course of justice.

It has also been clearly demonstrated that there is no separation of powers within the United Kingdom. Key legal appointments like Lord Chancellor and attorney General, Solicitor General are wholly political. It has also been clearly demonstrated that Parliament has no control of knowledge of events and that a vast apparatus of permanent unelected Government exists. This permanent Government consists of senior civil servants, intelligence and security officers, key figures in certain city and financial institutions (including Lloyds of London), key industrialists and directors of major monopolistic companies, senior politicians.
The Lord Chancellors Office which is responsible for the appointment of Judges, Clerks of the House of Commons select Committees and approval of Chairmen of such committees and the approval of the Queen’s Counsel, holds a total control of the legal administrative framework and has strong connections to the security and intelligence services. The last Clerk to the Crown in Chancery was Sir Thomas Legg, KCB QC who had strong links to the intelligence and security establishment and who was responsible for allocating Judges to controversial trials of a political nature where the “national interest” and “national security” (those much abused phrases) were involved, i.e. the Ponting Case. Legg’s successor will have a similar role.

Sir Thomas was duly wheeled out to keep the lid on the Sandline Inquiry re the strange events surrounding the FCO, Sierra Leone and real foreign policy as opposed to the sham variety discussed at Westminster. He has been wheeled out again to keep the lid on an inquiry regarding the corruption in the hugely expensive building of new MP’s offices opposite Big Ben. The companies involved in this case are Alvis, formerly United Scientific Holdings and its Germany partner in the installation of a £35m contract for copper cladding. United Scientific Holdings is the company where ex Chief of defence Procurement and ex Lord Mayor Sir Peter, now Lord Levene was managing director (later a Director of N.M. Rothschild) was Chairman. An American competitor alleges irregularities and corruption as it offered to do the work for a much lower price.

The real framework which secretly controls our lives is little understood or studies even by those who work within its musty and murky depths. It has only recently emerged that Appeal Court Judges are secretly briefed making appearances before such luminaries a sham and a joke. The public can thank Mr Geoffrey Scriven for these revelations. Lloyd’s names can hardly have realised that legislation was secretly framed to prevent wrong doers being sued. (Times Magazine Article 21/2/00).

The other area which is little understood is the Crown. To many the Crown represents the Royal family but we now have a Constitutional Monarchy. The Crown in its constitutional sense is the last home of secret government. Much is done in the name of the Crown which is without the permission or knowledge of the Monarch. Token gestures are made by sending her despatch boxes of “selected” information. The Crown is represented by the Monarch but does not represent the on secret and major issues. The armed forces (the last bastion of institutional integrity) swear their allegiance to the Monarch not to Parliament as do Judges and the Intelligence and security services – the latter are totally unaccountable as is the Lord Chancellors’ office which controls Courts and Judges.

The Lord Chancellor is unelected as is the Attorney General who although chosen from the ranks of MPs is not elected, like the Solicitor General. The Attorney General holds sway over the Crown Prosecution service, serious Fraud Office, HM Customs (as revealed by the Scott Inquiry) and the Police in respect of sanctioning cases. The Law Officers, the Attorney General and the Solicitor General are the Chief Legal Advisors (assisted by the Solicitor General) has overall responsibility for the work of the Law Officer’s Departments: i.e. The Treasury Solicitors Department, Crown Prosecution Service, Serious Fraud Office, Legal Secretariat to the Law Officers. All the duties of the above departments (and HM Customs) are ultimately supervised by the Attorney General.

The Director of Public Prosecutions for Northern Ireland is also responsible to the Attorney General for the performance of his functions. There are also additional responsibilities with regard to civil and criminal law. The other area which is key to overall secret control outside Parliament is the Privy Council. It is important to note that all main members of the Cabinet become members of the Privy Council as do leaders and sometimes the deputy leaders of the opposition parties.

The Privy Council oath which all members take means they cannot freely discuss any matter they are informed of or told of “Under Privy Council terms”. This means that the Cabinet and opposition leaders cannot discuss freely in Parliament or elsewhere any matter told to them on “Privy Council terms”. This means in practice that the key MPs cannot discharge their democratic duties. It is in effect a gagging system like Public Interest Immunity Certificates dispensed by Judges on application of Government and its agencies. All senior Judges and Appeal Judges are Privy Councillors as is the Lord Chancellor, The Attorney and Solicitor General and other invited and key persons. This secret unelected body has a wide range of powers. On the surface other permanent secretaries, sometimes the Cabinet Secretary and certain members of the established aristocracy are Privy Councillors. The appointment is for life and Jonathon Aitken is one of the few members to resign. It should also be remembered Aitken was a Chairman of the Pinay Circle comprised of senior intelligence officers and world leaders who hold secret meeting around the world.

It is widely and erroneously assumed the Cabinet is the Executive of the elected Government whereas in our unwritten ill defined constitution it is in reality the executive arm of the Privy Council.

The Privy Council is responsible for the arrangements leading to the making of Royal Proclamations and Orders in Council for certain formalities connected with Ministerial Changes: for considering application for the grant or amendment of Royal Charters, for the security and approval of bylaws and statutes of Chartered Institutions, of the governing instruments of universities and colleges, for the appointment of High Sheriffs and many Crown and Privy Council Nominees for governing bodies. Under the relevant Acts, the office of the Privy Council is responsible for the approval of certain regulations and rules made by the governing bodies of the medical and certain allied professions.

The President of the Council has responsibility for the working of the Privy Council. A leader of the House of Commons he or she is responsible for supervising the Government’s legislative programme. He or she allegedly upholds the right and privileges of the House as a whole and in its capacity it falls to him or her to move motions relating to the procedure of the House. In January 1994 the Privy Council assumed responsibility for the newly formed Central Drugs Coordination Unit. The Judicial Committee of the Privy Council is the highest Court of Appeal for the Commonwealth except the United Kingdom and those countries which had abolished appeals to it. It still can confirm death sentences in certain territories and in the UK hears ecclesiastical cases and appeals against disciplinary decisions by disciplinary bodies of the medical professions and certain allied bodies. It’s more secret and sinister workings are little known and in theory it is the advisory body to the monarch. It appears that the bulk of elected politicians do not penetrate its inner recesses yet can be influenced by it.

The Privy Council allied with the Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC) and the Cabinet and Cabinet Intelligence Unit which is the real control over the security and intelligence services are part of the secret permanent unaccountable Government.
We have seen from the arms to Iran, Iraq affairs, the Sandline affair and other scandals that politicians and Parliament have little or no control and are more like players in a pantomime put on for the general public and gullible public.
The roots of this sinister power are rooted in history, particularly that of the usurping Tudors. The Privy Council and secret services have developed since then and it is wrong to regard MI5 and MI6 as the sole such bodies. As Douglas Hurd told a Commons Select Committee regarding nuclear proliferation they are but two tributaries of the main stream of intelligence. The communication and eavesdropping unit GCHQ works extensively with the intelligence and security services and with those of other countries including the intelligence services and National Security Agency of USA and with the Services of Australia, New Zealand and Canada. Each regularly circumvents domestic laws for the benefit of the others under programmes like “echelon” and agreements between UK and USA. Politicians and civil servants and other leading figures who get out of line can be surveyed or bugged and then threatened, blackmailed, framed up or worse.

Secrecy breeds corruption, secrecy is power; information is power particularly confidential information. There is no accountability and the calibre of MP deteriorates with each Parliament. The young politician with no experience outside is naïve and powerless and many now have a blind loyalty to their party. Ironically the hereditary peers of the House of Lords provided one of the last vestiges of honesty and independence now largely destroyed by self-important and self-deluding figures like Blair and Baroness Jay. This the background against which decisions affairs like Lloyds of London have been handled and decided.

Secrecy has breed corruption and lack of accountability. Judicial Inquiries are cosmetic and carried out by the Judiciary who are key tools of the “cover up” and the status quo. (i.e. the Scott Inquiry). London is a key world money laundering centre (£500 billion per annum). Damage to Lloyds’ credibility will damage London and its position as a money or financial centre.

Much of the UK’s traditional industry is gone. To deal with Lloyds from the point of view of justice, will rock the boat and damage the so called national interest. Privileged persons in politics and the judiciary etc have been protected and the rest do not matter. The policy is to protect Lloyds and cover up. The same arrogant and self serving attitude was evident in the arms trade and the related drugs trade. Those on the inside are only interested in concealment, cover up, and their own ongoing benefits protected by secrecy and privilege. Justice does not count. The scandals involving political parties, large companies, the intelligence and security services, and corruption in Germany (Kohl), France (Mitterand/Dumas, etc) Italy (Craxi) are pale shadows of what has gone on in the UK. We have what the late Roberto Clavi of Banco Amnrosiano in Italy as described “potere occulto” –secret power.

Ironically the main threat to this secret power is the European Convention of Human Rights (ECHR) Article 6 which overturns UK legal decisions regularly and has already caused the sacking of deputy Judges, and Magistrates in Scotland while threatening Scottish Judges. Scotland under devolution adopted ECHR in 1999 and England did so in October 2000, although the Lord Chief Justice (Bingham) already recommended as a result of the Kebbilen case that the ECHR should be recognised in England before this.

It is significant that the Home Secretary Shaw is proposing the abolition of juries and magistrates in many and perhaps eventually all cases. This will put further power in the hands of secret and unaccountable Government and corrupt Judges. The ramifications are extremely sinister and serious. Already the rules of evidence have been perverted in favour of secret an unaccountable Government who routinely conceal evidence and pervert the course of justice.

It has never been more vital for people to challenge the views of politicians and opinion formers. We live in an age where much if not most of the media is controlled. The legal mechanism and Judges and the court system need to be beyond reproach. Sadly they are not and the chronicle of abuse and manipulation of cases is appalling. Judges are not independent in most government related cases and are no different to salaried and pensioned civil servants. The independence of the Judiciary is an allusion fostered by the Judiciary. Too often a Judicial Inquiry is a system for cover up and concealment. Too often the courts are influenced by political considerations as in the Scott Inquiry and the recent Lloyds of London case. Perhaps with pressure this can be changed. We do not want a society dominated by lawyers, accountants and monopoly commercial Interests with the courts administered by Judges who follow directions. Thank you very much.
I was hoping to move on to the current topic relating to the death of Dr David Kelly but I have decided to cover this in Part 4 of this current series.

I believe that Gerald James is certainly and extremely brave man and despite the life he has led since he became a whistleblower he still presses on in his campaign to reveal the truth. It is clear that if we the public had any conscience we would insist that Gerald James has his day in court to reveal the rot that lies within the corridors of Westminster. The same applies to the Hutton Inquiry into Dr David Kelly’s death…..there is no question that this trial, chaired by Lord Hutton was as corrupt as it gets and certainly needs to be re investigate.

Whilst on the subject of Lord Hutton and the House of Lords, it has become obvious that this bastion of the British Hiarachy has become polluted by persons, that have had in some regards a very shady past (such as Peter Mendelson), and others that have either brushed the palms of political parties or others that knew too much about the illegal goings on and were Knighted to shut them up. It is truly a sad day to see the history of British politics tarnished in such a profound way.

Stayed tuned for more grime and crime in Part 4

When will the British have a true leader? Part 2

When will the British have a true leader?
When will the British have a government that serves the people?
When will we stop our aggressive foreign policy?

Part 2

In my last article we covered the covert (under the table) deals being done by our leaders, ministers and their government that frequently revealed plans to elongate conflict or to bring money into their own coffers. This mini series is basically following a time line and so we now arrive at the time a rather young political researcher by the name of David Cameron paid a totally illegal visit to South Africa, accompanied by a gentleman who has since been Knighted by the name of Ken Warren.

This visit was an all expenses paid trip that was funded by Armscor the Armaments Corporation of South Africa and took place in 1989 when David Cameron was only 24 years of age and still very much attached to the apron strings of is beloved Prime Minister, Maggie Thatcher. It must be fully understand that prior to this visit there were severe sanctions in place by the late 1980s.

A UN Resolution had already been initiated against South Africa, followed by the United States, the United Kingdom, and 23 other nations passing laws placing various trade sanctions on South Africa. A divestment movement in many countries was similarly widespread, with individual cities and provinces around the world implementing various laws and local regulations forbidding registered corporations under their jurisdiction from doing business with South African firms, factories, or banks. Despite these restrictions the British Prime Minster authorised these two gentlemen to proceed to South Africa in order to carry out a totally illegal deal, which turned out to be the purchase of three battlefield ready nuclear bombs.

What was also interesting was the fact that the President of the United States and his government were fully aware of this deal and allowed it to take place, all under the UN’s radar (who didn’t even know that South Africa had any nuclear capability). It was also interesting to note that Israel had also allowed its nuclear technicians to go down to South Africa and help them establish a nuclear weapons capability. This served two purposes:

• It allowed Israel itself to develop and test fire a nuclear bomb in South Africa and

• It then allowed this technology to return to Israel and develop there own nuclear weapons industry.

It is important to know that this event really does play a very important part in the current Chilcott Inquiry (Iraq Inquiry) but unfortunately is not covered in the remit. This inquiry is a very well orchestrated performance to show that justice appears to be carried out, even though this enquiry has no legal framework to bring any possible offenders to trial. It was supposed to be an independent inquiry and yet the very control of it took place out of the cabinet office. This meant that all the questions were very carefully worded and that those giving evidence would have known those questions ahead of the hearing and had their well structured answers all lined up. The sheer arrogance of all those taking part is a very clear indication that they had nothing to fear.

So what actually happened in those dark days and who may have been implicated not only in the deal itself but also in the cover up that continues to this day?
Many names have been bounced around some of those being:
Ken Clarke – Alan Clarke – David Wilshire – Jeffrey Howe – Michael Hesaltine – Malcolm Rifkin – Peter Lilley – Ken Warren. One could also add more names to the list, such as Lord McAlpine, - Stephan Kock – Robert Maxwell – Mark Thatcher and obviously the person who was directly responsible for signing the weapons off, poor Dr David Kelly. We must also add that evil man that sexed up the Iraq Dossier and screwed Dr Kelly….the notorious Alistair Campbell.

So what was the sequence of events that led to this total violation of the embargo on South Africa and how were these three nuclear weapons moved from their storage facility in Pelindarba to the Port of Durban and onwards to Oman? How were these nukes manifested and how come they were moved in such a low key operation, with little security, and then moved into a privately owned storage facility that then allowed them to be stolen?

The first thing to remember is that these three weapons were no manifested as nuclear bombs but rather as “Cylinders” and the “Iron Lady” herself signed them off prior to leaving office under her powers. The process of signing off is covered under the terms of “Urgent Operational Requirement” (UOR) and requires no involvement of the Cabinet or Parliament……..can one even imagine that three nuclear bombs were purchased illegally, moved and stored ready for use in Iraq and Parliament and the people of this country didn’t even know? Now one can see just how far the people that run our country are prepared to go!

The company dealing with these weapons, at the British end, was called Astra (the famous British firework manufacturers) under the leadership of Gerald James. However, control of this company was handed over to a Rhodesian national Stephen Kock who also acted as a front man for the British Intelligence Service. The arms dealer John Bredenkamp under his company Casalee became the go between and so the scene was set for one of the most dangerous rip offs ever to take place on this planet.
The money trail for this deal was channeled by the DTI using the MOD as a front and then via the Bank of England using Astra as the go between. It was interesting that the Chairman of Astra, Gerald James had a full account off all the arms dealings which he accurately recorded in his spreadsheets (Sheet Number Six) in which he hoped to reveal in the Matrix Churchill Inquiry, which I will cover later. The final release of the money for these illegal weapons was to have been after their arrival in Oman and after Dr David Kelly had inspected them and signed them off.
Also in the backdrop of this covert operation were those that had invested in the initial transaction to get the project rolling. One can attribute much of this groundwork being done by non other than dear Maggie’s son, Mark Thatcher with the final outcome giving £17.8 million of British Tax Payers money to the Conservative Party Funds for the coming election.
It was interesting to note that during the David Cameron/Ken Warren visit to South Africa in 1989 also happened to be a bumper year for Matrix Churchill having had a turnover of £40 million in 1988. With all of the British Governments illegal arms dealing Matrix Churchil had on its oder books for 1989 another £44 million which was a remarkable turnround since this company a few years earlier was knocking on the door of bankruptcy.
It was also in 1989 that they formed another division called Matrix Projects to deal with their new found wealth. It was also around this time that the US also became involved in a takeover. It was very clear that illegal activities had been taking place on both sides of the pond and everyone turned a blind eye until Customs spotted the “Super Gun” barrels in Teesside Docks ready to be loaded for shipment to Baghdad. We will cover both the missing nukes and the super gun cover up later.
One can clearly see that munitions were a thriving business during this time and many of the deals struck up were in total violation of the embargos in place. This meant that the British Government were very much implicated in these covert deals and in some cases were directly involved in them.
As is always the case when one gets caught out the government launches itself on a massive cover up and allows other middle men and companies to take the blame and in the case of the above forces the inquiry to collapse, arrests the middle men or assassinates them.
What became apparent was that after Dr David Kelly had inspected the three nuclear bombs in Oman and after the money had exchanged hands the man that had provided the weapons (John Bredenkamp) again stole them from their insecure storage facility. They were stored in special 20 foot sea containers with a hidden inspection panel to check the core temperature of the nuclear bomb….the three containers were then replaced by three false containers that only contained concrete blocks.
The actual theft was not noticed until the three containers arrived in Chicago and inspection revealed the bombs had been stolen. Basically the arrangement made between South Africa – US – UK was that the 9 remaining nukes would end up in the US for de commissioning…….6 of these sea containers were sent directly and 3 were sent via Oman and then released when it was realized that there was no requirement for them to be used in Iraq.
It was obvious that neither the US or UK governments could discuss this theft as the entire deal had been a deceitful covert operation. Even to this day both governments and the Israel Government are frantically trying to find out where these bombs ended up. One should also add to these three South African/British missing nukes the three missing nukes that the US lost off the coast of Somalia when a B52 dumped them in the sea during a full in flight emergency. What has since transpired is that North Korea has to date tested two nuclear weapons, one being a US missing nuke and one being a stolen South African/British nuke. Maybe one can now read between the lines as to why the US, UK and Israeli Governments are so aggressive towards Iran and North Korea!
As its stands at the moment John Bredenkamp’s assets have been frozen and there is an urgent drive to try to prosecute him for some other incident in order to get him into custody and interrogate him for information on those missing nukes……we must remember that in both cases it was the governments on both sides of the pond that allowed this mishap to happen by their gross neglect. John Bredenkamp received tons of gold for the US weapons and much money from the British for the South African Weapons……as they say what goes around comes around…..I can assure you that there are many senior past and current political figures that are extremely nervous, should these facts come to the surface and reach the world’s media. That is why the Matrix Churchill collapsed, why the Scott Inquiry was a dead duck, why the Hutton inquiry covered up the death of Dr Kelly and why the current Chilcott inquiry is a total scam. We will now look at these inquires and try to see what has happened and what moves have been made at government level to try to protect those involved.
Following the first Gulf War of 1991 there was interest as to what extent British companies had been supplying Saddam Hussein's regime with the materials to enhance the war. Four directors of the British machine tools manufacturer Matrix Churchill were put on trial for supplying equipment and knowledge to Iraq, but in 1992 the trial collapsed, as it was revealed that the company had been advised by the government on how to sell arms to Iraq.
When the Matrix Churchill trial began the government realised that if they called Gerald James, former Chairman of Astra and the man who wrote the book; ‘In the Public Interest’, they realised that because the deal was part of the trade and Industry contract, the Judge would have asked for all the relevant files.
Just before the trial began in November 1992, ministers signed Public Interest Immunity certificates declaring that certain government documents could not be passed over without imperilling national security. These documents were considered vital to the defence case that the company was acting in the knowledge and support of the security services which wanted information about Iraq's plans. But the judge refused to accept the certificates - and the trial collapsed. This was later described as gagging orders. The ministers who signed the gagging orders were: Michael Heseltine - Malcolm Rifkind – Alan Clarke - Peter Lilly – Kenneth Clarke all of whom were obviously implicated in the entire episode.
It should be noted that three executive of Matrix Churchill were charged with illegally supplying arms-making equipment to Iraq. The case went to trial but the prosecution collapsed after Alan Clarke, the former Minister of State for Defence Procurement, admitted in cross examination that he supported the allegedly unlawful sale. The collapse of the trial led to allegations that some ministers had been prepared to allow innocent men to go to prison rather than allow their change in policy to become public. This then led to the Scott Inquiry when the Prime Minister, Tony Blair, appointed Sir Richard Scott to investigate the affair.
The main reason for this dramatic change and push by the British Government was when they realised that the star witness at the Matrix Churchill trial would have been Gerald James, the former Chairman of Astra. Gerald had in his possession the ledger sheet which would have shown in great detail the payments made to Casalee (John Bredenkamp). It was also interesting to note that the government raided the offices of Gerald James and removed all the office filing cabinets.
One can clearly see the sordid way our governments operate and it is clear that, despite any UN sanctions, if it is of economic gain then they turn a blind eye. What was to follow was yet again another fiasco called the Scott Inquiry. Senior Tories, including former foreign secretaries Lord Howe and Douglas Hurd have criticised Scott for employing a technique that was unfair to witnesses who were not given the opportunity to cross-examine other witnesses. Scott was accused of being prosecutor, judge and jury in an inquiry. The spin off from all these totally corrupt inquires raises the following questions:
• Did the Government have a separate policy for the sale of British arms to Iraq?
• Did some ministers tell lies in Parliament about the policy or arms sales?
• Did the Government fail to act promptly on information it received about the Iraqi "Super-gun" project?
• Did the Government allow businessmen to be prosecuted (over Supergun, Ordtech and Matrix Churchill) for activities that had been privately condoned by officials or ministers?
• Was it right for ministers to issue Public Interest Immunity Certificates - so-called gagging orders - to try to withhold documents that could be useful to the defence in the Matrix Churchill trial?
• Did ministers conspire to mislead the British public?
We can now add to the list of senior figures that of John Major, Tony Blair and later Gordon Brown who were either aware or involved in all of the above and thus carried out an act of deceit or withheld the truth.
What I find totally unacceptable is the fact that every government is professing to be totally transparent in its dealings. We had a classic case back in those dark years whereby the government of the day could rip off the British Tax Payer to the tune of £17.8 million, send it to an offshore banking outlet, and then bring it back into the country to prop up the Conservative Party Election Fund. This fraud was monitored by Margaret Thatcher, John Major,David Cameron, Tony Blair and many other senior political and yet to this day has still not been accounted for. Tony Blair himself received £1 million from Bernie Ecclestone, the Formula One chief which was covered up as a donation from the tobacco industry. It should also be remembered that Dr David Kelly was the only person in mainstream UK MoD tasked with being in the loop for that covert offshore procurement of battlefield nukes from Apartheid South Africa. Basically his future was clearly mapped out for him once he decided to become a whistleblower!!
This is an Hansard account on how this was raised in the Houses of Parliement:
Extract taken from HANSARD 22nd June 1993.

Tory funding of their 1992 General Election Campaign –
Origins of Mystery Donation of £17.8 millions - Column 197:

Mr. Hoyle: If the hon. Gentleman will allow me, I shall tell him what information is now given to us. We understand the expenditure and what Tory central office receives. In 1992, central office received £20.7 million. When we asked about that and about company donations, the Tory party told us to look at company accounts.
I repeat: in 1992, the Tories received £20.7 million. When the records were checked by Companies house, only £2.9 million was shown in company accounts. That means that there is a deficit of £17.8 million. We want to know where that £17.8 million came from.

Mr. Tim Smith: The hon. Gentleman has made the suggestion about the accounts of the Conservative party that was made by a member of the Select Committee last week: that no accounts had been published between 1979 and 1983. They were published, and I undertook to send copies to the Select Committee.

Mr. Hoyle: I gave way to the hon. Gentleman because I expected him to tell me where the difference of £17.8 million came from. I shall give way again to him.
I am told that he is a treasurer of the Conservative party. I give way to him now so that he can stand up and tell us where the £17.8 million came from. Does the hon. Gentleman care to do that? I am waiting. I do not think that we shall get the information from the horse's mouth. We certainly did not get it from the Secretary of State.
Mr. Hoyle: That is a very useful piece of information, which has added to my knowledge. Does the hon. Gentleman now care to tell us, taking just 1992, where the almost £18 million that is unaccounted for came from? We know that the funding--

Mr. Nigel Evans (Ribble Valley): This is boring.

Mr. Hoyle: It may be boring, but it is nevertheless true. In fact, it is not boring to my colleagues, because we should like a little light shone on the matter. Perhaps the hon. Gentleman can help us.

Mr. Mike O'Brien (Warwickshire, North): As a member of the Select Committee on Home Affairs, I have to tell my hon. Friend that he is being very unfair to as on the Conservative Board of Finance and who represented 84 constituencies. He said:
"Over £67 million of expenditure was recorded by the Conservative Party in my fours years on the Committee, but no one had to account for a penny of it to the Conservative Board of Finance nor to any other elected body." Conservative Members do not know the answers; nor does anyone else.

Mr. Hoyle: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for that intervention. Perhaps only two people know where the funding came from. One is Lord McAlpine, whom the unfortunate President of the Board of Trade (Heseltine) apparently saw on his visit to Venice. I join the Secretary of State for Employment in hoping that the right hon. Gentleman has a speedy and full recovery and is soon back in the House.
However, the President of the Board of Trade (Heseltine) visited Lord McAlpine, and Lord McAlpine is one of the men who knows.

The other person is perhaps someone to whom my right hon. Friend the Member for Derby, South (Mrs. Beckett) referred--Sir Brian Wyldbore-Smith. He is apparently a director of the Conservative Board of Finance--a curious name, but a curious job, too. Apparently, Sir Brian used private addresses to receive cheques--they were not sent directly to central office. They were made out to him personally, eventually passed on and often paid into an offshore account in Jersey, a tax haven.

They eventually landed at central office with Lord McAlpine, whose office, I understand, was always kept locked except when he was in it, so that the secrets could not be given to the rank and file or to members of the Cabinet. Therefore, my hon. Friend the Member for Warwickshire, North (Mr. O'Brien) is right to say that Conservative Members do not know where the funding came from.
I wonder why there is no inquiry into the source of this fund and why governments are always pursuing tax fraud cheats but do nothing about this particular case.
Finally we come to events leading up to the Iraq War, the suicide (assassination) of Dr David Kelly and yet another scam the “Hutton Inquiry” and the current “Chilcott Inquire” which I will cover in Part 3 of this current series.
Keep watching this space for more lies and deceit!

When will the British have a true leader?

When will the British have a government that serves the people?
When will we stop our aggressive foreign policy?
Part 1

The purpose of writing this short series of articles is to prove that for a couple of decades (or even possibly longer) we have not had a government in office that is truly representative of the people for the people. In actual fact I would go a stage further and say that they all carried out an act of treason against the constitution of the United Kingdom and caused immeasurable suffering and death to the people it represents.

These respective leaders, ministers and government embarked on a policy that not only put this country at great risk but also knowingly used weapons that were in violation of the Geneva Convention. They were not only Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) but also totally indiscriminate, resulting in the death/sickness of millions of innocent civilians, their own military forces and then crossing international borders to continue their deadly journey around the globe.

There is no question or doubt that these past and current leaders, the British Government, Ministers and the Ministry of Defence knew of the implications in using such weapons, which beyond a shadow of doubt implicates them as being guilty of war crimes, amounting to mass genocide. In order to paint this picture of deceit and treachery we must start with the current Prime Minister and work backwards.

We currently see (the not so new kid on the block) David Cameron launch himself down the same path of self destruction and one could ask what makes him any different to all those that were before him? From my perspective I can see our new Prime Minister possible turning into one of the worst ever.

So what sets this man aside from the others and what makes this particular cabinet dangerous. To find the answer to this and many other concerns one has to turn the clock back to when David Cameron was a young, up and coming, researcher for the Conservative Party under the apron strings of the “Iron Lady” herself, Maggie Thatcher. One has to see how this man with other senior members of government allowed our country to be put in grave danger all in the name of money and personal gain.

Back in 1975 all sorts of clandestine operations were taking place in South Africa ranging from a very active Chemical and Biological Warfare (CBW) programme and also advances in nuclear research. All of this activity was being monitored and approved by both the US and UK Governments. It was in this same year that South Africa announced that it had a pilot plant for uranium enrichment at Pelindaba. Ninety-seven pounds of enriched uranium, enough to make seven atomic bombs, was shipped to the plant by the US Nuclear Corporation of Oak Ridge, Tennessee to assist it.

From 1977 onwards the US policy to South Africa hardened. Because of its exploitation of Namibian uranium, South Africa was removed from its permanent position in the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Shortly thereafter, Soviet satellite pictures showing South Africa preparing to detonate a nuclear explosive in the Kalahari Desert brought a warning from US president Jimmy Carter not to do so.

In 1979 the “Iron Lady” Maggie Thatcher came to power and progressively introduced Neo – Liberalism during her reign which many believe was the downfall of the United Kingdom. However Thatcher also became involved in some very sinister discussions, one being the trip to South Africa by her errand boy David Cameron. Our current Prime Minister at the tender age of 24 went down to South Africa on an all expenses paid jolly compliments or ARMSCOR. David was accompanied by the only technical person capable of dealing with this very controversial deal (acquisition of three battlefield nuclear bombs) non other than Ken Warren (now Sir Ken Warren) who appears to be the mastermind behind this very shonky deal which we will cover later in this series, which is in date order.

It was during the 1980 that things started to step up a notch both in the area of CBW development and also in South Africa’s under the table nuclear weapons research. It was also around this time that development of a “Super Gun” started to emerge all of which was known and supported by both the US and the UK.

Early in the war with Iran, the Iraqi government engaged world- renowned artillery expert Gerald V. Bull, whose lifetime obsession was the construction of a "Supergun," a huge howitzer able to fire satellites into space or launch artillery shells thousands of miles into enemy territory. Bull did not accomplish his dream and was sentenced and jailed for one year in 1980 for illegally selling weapons [encouraged by the CIA] to South Africa. Despite the US arms embargo he did manage to design some of the most effective artillery pieces in the world.

In April 1981 US Secretary of State, Alexander Haig, invited South African Foreign Minister, Pik Botha, to the US, and the French, British and US vetoed four UN resolutions calling for sanctions against South Africa. For the next four years South Africa could count on a more tolerant US attitude and the full support of Britain..

In September 1982, Armscor announced that its G-5 tow and the G-6 SP Gun/Tow could fire nuclear rounds if necessary, but that South Africa did not intend to use such weapons. The existence of the G5 towed artillery piece was revealed to the world and surprise was expressed that such an advanced system could be developed locally. The G6 was revealed in the mid 1980's. The G6 and G5 are built by LIW, a division of DENEL in South Africa.

It was during the Iraq – Iran War that the Iraqi government dispatched a private aircraft to Geneva to take Bull to Baghdad. So began a long association between Bull and the government of Iraq, and its then-defense minister, Saddam Hussein. Bull dealt with Iraq for almost 10 years. Iraq was one of many states with guns developed by Bull. His clients are known to include his native Canada, the United States, South Africa, Iran, Chile, Taiwan, China, and Libya.
Gerard Bull was first contracted by the Iraqi government in 1981. They desperately needed artillery to out-range the enemy in the protracted Iran-Iraq War. The association allowed Bull to yet again seek sponsorship of a space-launch supergun. Sadam Hussein liked the idea, and Project Babylon was born. Throughout the 1980's Bull's dealings with Iraq had the covert approval of Western governments, who saw Iraq as a counterweight to revolutionary Iran.
In March of 1988, Bull received a contract to build two full sized 'Project Babylon' 1000 mm superguns and one 'Baby Babylon' 350 mm prototype for a total of $25 million. The project was given the cover designation 'PC-2' (Petrochemical Complex-2). British engineer Christopher Cowley was the project manager.
The greatest concern by the international community was Iraq's arsenal of guns developed by Gerald Bull from mid-1981 until he was assassinated by what was believed to be Israeli intelligence on 22 March 1990. Two hundred of these guns, termed GH-N-45 were manufactured in Austria and were shipped to Iraq via Jordan in 1985 for use in the Iran-Iraq war. The remaining 100 were manufactured in South Africa, where they are marketed under the name G-5. The G-5 can deliver a tactical nuclear warhead, chemical shells or any NATO standard 155mm shell.

It is my intentions in this series of articles to explain just how corrupt and two faced governments can become whereby they install or support a west friendly President to carry out their own hidden agenda. In this case Saddam was one such President that had the full support of both the US and UK governments with the intention of keeping the Iraq/ Iran war running as long as possible. This next paragraph explains what was going on at the time. At a later date we would see two inquiries emerge one being the Scott Inquiry and also the Matrix Churchill inquiry both of which became a total farce and government cover – up with the latter beings scuppered by the British Government before it even got underway.

The following is an extraction of an article highlighting UK’s involvement in the supergun affair: Iraq used the petrochemical complex two (PC-2) project as a front to purchase components for Gerald Bull's super gun. Matrix Churchill was a long established Midlands based machine tool manufacturer which was purchased in 1987 by an Iraqi controlled company, TMG Engineering Ltd, which was in turn controlled by another Iraqi controlled company, Technology and Development Group Ltd (TDG). The military uses of Matrix-Churchill machines are the prime reason Iraq was interested in purchasing the company. Acquiring Matrix-Churchill gave Iraq access, not only to the machine tools, but also the computer programming, tooling, and other components needed to make a wide variety of munitions as well as other applications in aerospace and nuclear industries. The Iraqi NASSR Establishment for Mechanical Industries contracted with the company for the supply of machine tools for a project, code named "ABA", to manufacture parts for multi launcher rocket systems. In addition, supergun components were fabricated in separate parts by factories in England (Forgemasters in Sheffield), Spain, Holland and Switzerland. Acting on an anonymous tip, British Customs seized the final eight sections of the Super Gun in November 1990. The work skirted the law but remained legal, as illustrated by Britain's unsuccessful prosecution of the case, following the joint British-American sting operation that uncovered key supergun equipment transfers.
The background to this article was created to Tara Davison who dealt with intelligence matters/investigations at the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and who became a whistleblower on the illegal arms trade carried out by the British Government, especially in the Middle East. When one links this scam with the nuclear weapons deal in South Africa one can clearly see that the respective leaders and their governments will do anything to either encourage conflict or to elongate a war in order to gain financial reward for themselves or their political party. I will return to some aspects of Tara Davison’s account later on in this mini series.
It should also be noted that when certain incidents happen to get into the media the leaders and their government would suddenly duck for cover and embark on covering up their tracks as soon as possible. However, sadly this also entailed the removal of key witnesses by well planned assassinations or the imprisonment of others so as not to allow the vital evidence to reach the court or a public enquiry. Three examples being the arrest and imprisonment of key British figures involved in the super gun deal, the assassination of the designer, Gerald Bull, followed by the South African nuclear weapons scam and the assassination of Dr David Kelly to protect those in high places which I will be covering in part 2 of this series.
As I have pointed out that once the media get their teeth into such scams, all hell lets loose. On such report by the BBC appeared in 1990 and said the following: Customs seize 'supergun.' Customs officers in Middlesbrough say they have seized what they believe to be the barrel of a massive gun on a ship bound for Iraq.
Exports of parts for a weapon to Iraq would contravene British restrictions on arms sales to President Saddam Hussein's state. Eight pipes were found in crates during a search of the ship at the Teesport Docks. The length of the barrel is said to measure 40 metres (130 feet) when assembled. This would make it by far the largest gun in the world with a range of approximately 600 miles (965 kilometres). The ship where the pipes were found, the Gur Mariner, is being chartered by the Iraqi Maritime Organisation.
The main issue I am trying to raise in my articles is the fact that the leaders and governments on both sides of the pond have been and continue to pull the wool over our eyes to cover up their evil covert ways of manipulating the Geo Politics of this planet. They encourage conflict in order to become involved in areas of hostility such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen and Somalia etc. They also covertly distribute arms illegally, which in some cases are used against our own forces or those of our allies. The arms manufacturing business is one of the most lucrative in the world and conflict or wars turns over huge amounts of money…….it also has the ability to increase the price of oil and gas which also props up the companies they own. One must also remember that in amongst this mass deceit are private deals going on to which they themselves benefit from or that attract huge sums of money for their own political party to enhance an election or a particular candidate. We will cover one such case later.
One point I would like to make in regard to the pre arranged assassinations of Gerald Bull and Dr David Kelly is to ask the question “Where is the true axis of evil and at what level are they prepared to go”? We all fully understand they are both linked to illegal arms deals (Super Gun and South African nukes) and that very senior politicians were implicated.. We could also ask some questions about the death of Robin Cooke (Ex British Foreign Minister) and also Michael Todd (Ex Manchester Police Chief) both of whom had some very strong views……the list is endless…….we could also add to this the crash of the Chinook helicopter that mysteriously crashed on the Mull of Kintyre in Scotland with 25 high level security and intelligence experts from Northern Ireland onboard. One should have some serious concerns that the Chinook Inquiry was a cover up by Ministry of Defence with the involvement of the DTI and the British Secret Service.
Anyway let’s get back to the main story and talk about another evil episode relating to Chemical and Biological Warfare (CBW): The following is an extraction from another report regarding more government cover ups: On 11 April 1994 the ambassadors of the US and UK met with President De Klerk. According to Ambassador Princeton Lyman of the United States, who was present during these meetings, the US and UK were concerned that the South African CBW information was “in danger of being acquired by other states, in particular Libya, and that South African scientists could be recruited by these states.
Lyman recalls that after the 1994 election the US and UK waited for De Klerk to brief President Mandela. They believed that this briefing had to take place before Mandela’s inauguration. Five days before the inauguration, when the briefing had not taken place, the US “alerted Thabo Mbeki that there was a proliferation matter of great concern that we [the US and UK] would need to address
The continued trips undertaken by Wouter Basson (cardiologist and former head of the country's secret chemical and biological warfare “Project Coast”) to Libya were still a matter of concern to the US and UK. In January 1995 a third démarche was brought by the governments of the US and UK. Dr Graham Pearson, former Director-General of the UK Defence Ministry’s Chemical and Biological Defence Establishment at Porton Down, who was present during the meetings that followed, said that the intention of the démarche was to request the South African government to provide a credible CBM statement to the BTWC. He said that no comment was made about the nature of the programme and no questions were asked about it. Lyman records that the most difficult issue of the meeting was Basson’s travels to Libya and elsewhere.

It was also revealed that government bodies were united in their wish to prevent public exposure of the programme and were warned of the threat the hearing posed to foreign relations, not least because documents relating to the 1993 and 1994 démarches of the US and UK were found in the trunks. It was argued that if details of these demarches (political protests) were to emerge, trust between the three countries (US, UK and South Africa) would be severely compromised.

The government hoped for a cancellation of the hearing, or at the very least an agreement that the hearing would be conducted in camera. Neither of which were acceptable to the Commission. Finally, in a bid to reduce the potential damage the hearing could cause to foreign relations, the government insisted that a rigorous process be undertaken to identify and approve the documents which could be used in the hearing. A policy was agreed upon: not to make public any documents that could provide technical information to potential proliferators, and the documents pertaining to the démarches would not be made public.

It has often been questioned whether the South Africa programme does indeed offer internationally applicable lessons when measured against the biological weapons and/or chemical programmes of Iraq, the United States, the Soviet Union and Japan which were several orders of magnitude larger and were aimed at the development of large-scale biological weapons for conventional use.

There is evidence to indicate that the intelligence agencies of at least the United States, the United Kingdom and Switzerland were aware of the SADF’s interest in chemical and biological warfare and were aware of Basson’s role in the programme from the early 1980s. Despite being states parties to the Biological and Toxins Weapons Convention (BTWC) these states chose not to confront the apartheid government with their suspicions about treaty violation until shortly before the 1994 elections because they were neither threatened by the programme nor had much to gain politically from calling Pretoria to account

It should also be noted that a Dr William Augerson (US deputy assistant Secretary of Defence for health resources and programmes), according to Basson’s notes, issued a statement indicating that the USA “does in fact do offensive research/have and offensive research capacity” and that “he [Augerson] states that any country with a chemical industry should be able to produce offensive chemicals.” Basson also credits Augerson with the opinion that, “chemical attack is an ideal tactical weapon against terrorist organisations”

The US and UK clearly knew enough about the South African CBW program to judge that the CBM submitted by South Africa was inaccurate (why else would they have been concerned about Basson’s contact with Libya?). Why, then, did the US and UK choose to do and say nothing to prevent the South African CBW program from continuing during the 1980s and early 1990s? The answer to this question probably lies in US policy towards South Africa during the Cold War.

To conclude: the main intention of this mini series is to reveal just how corrupt and deceitful our respective leaders, ministers and governments officials have been. It will reveal that behind the scenes it breaches UN resolutions, embargoes, illegal arms trading and frequently encourages/enhances conflict.

Both sides of the pond frequently use the term “The Axis of Evil” and yet when one gets the opportunity to investigate this spider’s web of deceit we can see the evil that’s exist deep within the corridors of power. It became clear that back in the days of Maggie Thatcher and right up to the current time that what we read about and what actually goes on is truly beyond words.

It is apparent that our respective governments and intelligence services create their many false flags to take us to war to either enhance their own position in this crazy geo political world or to control their own hidden agenda of seeking to control the world’s resources and markets and at the same time protect the drugs that play such a lucrative part in our economy.

It is also an act of treason and a breach of the Geneva Convention that our governments put not only the populations of the world at risk but also that of our military forces by using WMD’s that they knowingly contaminate with radiation nano particles.

Part two of this mini series will continue with more of this deceit when we cover detail of the loss of the South African nuclear weapons, the illegal arms trade and the manipulation of our governments by those that brush their palms with significant amounts of money. One could also include the current Naomi Campbell “Blood Diamond” cover up whereby it was a known fact that diamonds were exchanged for arms from South Africa which in turn fuelled conflict in Liberia and Sierra Leone. It should also be remembered that Charles Taylor who remains at the centre of the current War Crimes Trial was aided and abetted by the CIA in the US….now you can see just how sordid this whole arms dealing becomes. It all comes down to the fact; can you trust your leaders and their governments? We already know the answer to this question.

Keep watching this space for the truth and remember yet again those words of Ghandi: "When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible but in the end, they always fall -- think of it, ALWAYS."
