Banker Robber Gets Away With £4 Million

with 5 comments

Stop Thief!

Eric Daniels, chief executive of Lloyds, 41% owned by the taxpayer, is to be given a £2 million cash bonus and receive a further £2 million in shares.

This is nothing short of robbery.   No one is entitled to earn that amount of money when the survival of their business has been contingent on taxpayer support.  Any incentive scheme or agreement which tries to permit such payments is itself fraudulent.  If Daniels takes this money he should be arrested, his assets frozen and he should face trial for conspiracy and deception.

The man is a rogue and a charlatan.  Nothing he has done is of any real value and even by the corrupt and perverse standards of the banking system, he is a failure.  He is entitled to no credit at all for the recovery of Lloyds.

He is another banker robber.  No different from a bank robber.   He pilfers old people’s savings and cheats hardworking businessmen.  Let’s lock him up before he gets away with it!

Drug Crazed Politicians Promote Crime And Misery

"I'm so stoned...I don't know what I'm doing..."

Nothing more clearly demonstrates the complete absence of integrity in this inane, corrupt government than the sacking of Sir David Nutt.   I had always admired Alan Johnson.  Now he shows himself to be just as stupid and dumb as any of Gordon’s cronies.

Cannabis is a benign, natural herb that has been used as a medicine and recreational relaxant for over 4,000 years until politicians took a dislike to it just over 100 years ago.  Since then, despite dozens of “studies” across the world, each one of which has been specifically tasked to condemn it as dangerous, no harm has been proven.  Nevertheless, from Richard Nixon to Gordon Brown, myopic, paranoid, self-serving, tabloid-worshipping politicians have imposed more and more severe penalties for its use.

In the 50s the argument was that it made white women promiscuous with black men.  The standard of discussion has barely improved since.  The recent government sponsored hysteria over psychosis in adolescents is now revealed as utter nonsense in the face of the facts.

So why do politicians continue to persecute those who use cannabis?  What’s in it for them?  After all there is overwhelming evidence to show that a properly regulated cannabis supply could be a huge source of new taxation revenue for government and that regulation would drastically reduce all the harm that is caused by prohibition.

Off His Head

It’s more difficult to accept this argument in respect of  heroin and cocaine because these are harmful substances but look at the evidence from Holland, Switzerland, Portugal and many other places.  There can be little doubt that if the supply and distribution of drugs was regulated rather than prohibited then the harm caused would be reduced enormously.  Furthermore, decriminalisation would drastically – and I mean DRASTICALLY – reduce crime at all levels.  Street crime is all about theft and robbery in order to fund the purchase of drugs.  International organised crime and terrorism is all about the drugs trade.  End prohibition, start regulation and you pull the rug from under criminals at all levels.  It would transform our society and save thousands of lives.

So I ask again – why?  What do politicians gain from such a fundamentally stupid policy?  At a stroke they could cut out the majority of both street and serious crime  and  massively reduce the funding of terrorism.

Cannabis was first demonised because hemp was an early rival to the oil industry.  Before diesel came biodiesel.  Rudolph Diesel designed his engine to run on peanut or hemp oil.  Henry Ford designed his Model T to run on bioethanol produced from hemp and planted hundreds of acres on his own farms for that purpose – then along came oil.  More importantly along came the early investors in the oil industry, specifically Randolph Hearst, owner and controller of the biggest propaganda and disinformation machine ever known to man.  He started the the “Reefer Madness” campaign and promoted the lie against cannabis.  Hemp was outlawed in favour of oil and we have since spent 100 years burning oil, becoming more and more reliant on its byproducts, destroying our planet and persecuting those who use cannabis.

Politicans are cowards.  They were bribed and cajoled by big money to turn against cannabis in the first place.  They do not have the vision or the common sense to see past the mess they have got themselves in over drugs policy.  In a very real way they are more responsible than anyone else for the misery, death and chaos casued by the drugs trade which they actually support through their stupidity.

This government might as well have a committee of tabloid newspaper editors advising it on drugs rather than scientists.  All over the world politicans have let us all down over drugs policy.  Why?  Because they are cowardly, self-serving and only interested in short term political expediency.

Why Are We Waiting?

What are they up to?  The robbery has taken place, much of it caught on CCTV.  They were called weeks ago.  Are they just sitting on their backsides finishing their tea?  Maybe their sluggish response is due to flat feet or learning difficulties?  We, the victims,  are still waiting.  Meanwhile the crooks are desperately trying to cover up the evidence, even returning some of what they have stolen, cooking their books, arm twisting the judges, launching PR and propaganda campaigns to distort the truth.

Where Is He Hiding?

Where Is He Hiding?

Where are the police?  Are we back in the day when the village bobby cowtows to the local squire, tugs his forelock and turns a blind eye?

Perhaps they’re being held back by corrupt senior officers,  or their lawyers are fiddling while Rome burns and they’re too scared to uphold the law?

Who Else Will Stand Up For Justice?

Who Else Will Stand Up For Justice?

Each and every Chief Constable in the country should by now have launched an investigation into his or her local MPs.  Sir Paul Stephenson of the Met, supposedly went into a meeting with the CPS about a fortnight ago.  What the hell are they up to?  There’s much more urgency when a hungry single mother steals food for her children from Sainsburys. The sirens blare out quickly enough then!

This is a disgraceful state of affairs and the police are letting us down.  This must be more work for the Independent Police Complaints Commission or are we left with no option but to turn to Batman and Robin?  Who else will stand up for justice?

Meanwhile, Mrs Patel is up before the beak in Harrow today under The Fraud Act 2006 for telling fibs about her address to get her child into a better school.  See the story here

This is the state of justice in Britain today.
