Worse than terrorists: City fraudsters are treated far too leniently, says former DPP


www.dailymail.co.uk

Britain's former chief prosecutor has attacked Labour's record on tackling financial crime and declared that fraudulent bankers are more of a danger to society than terrorists.

Sir Ken Macdonald said that Britain's system for regulating markets and prosecuting City crimes had completely broken down.

Sir Ken, who served as Director of Public Prosecutions between 2003 and 2008, said: 'If you mug someone in the street and you are caught, the chances are that you will go to prison.

'In recent years, mugging someone out of their savings or their pension would probably earn you a yacht.'

But these days, making the economy collapse earns you a country and every business, building and able bodied person within it.

NWO strikes and poisons us all in one go, nowhere to run, nowhere to hide... You will bow down.

But, fair comment on his part. Or is this just to try to ease the minds of people, give them a little hope.. make them have a small smile on their faces instead of 2009's summer of discontent as TPTB prepare for the possibility of protests and riots countrywide.

Or is this just another stream of spin after Browns spoutings over the weekend?

But, there is a scary bit and this whole report, and this gents words, have been very cleverly put together.

In his first major announcement since leaving office, Sir Ken called for tougher regulation and a single, powerful authority to replace the 'failed' Financial Services Authority and the 'struggling' Serious Fraud Office.


There seems to be a mixed message here.. on one hand he is going on about progression with the NWO and big brother, but he seems to be using a very popular point in order to win his case....

That point being...

Sir Ken continued: 'So no one likes terrorists? Let's bring in lots of terror laws, the tougher the better. Let's lock up nasty people longer, and for longer before they are charged.

'This frequently made useful .lines. But it didn't make our country or any other country a better or safer place to live.'


So, now, here we are... paying our taxes so that the government can use them to bail out the bankers in order for us to pay more taxes.. and still be in debt to the bankers even though we now own well over 60% of them...

These are strong and important words here that this gent has spoken.. I seriously hope it is for the better.

(Bold emphasis; mine)

Is this a retroactive initiative which will be able to jail thousands of dead men throughout the last 2000 or so years up until this point?

Because even that won't be good enough unless we figure out WHY society and the economy as an obviously large and crucial organ of society continually creates these kinds of people and situations.

You can jail every bad guy since Ancient Egyptian times, and two more will appear for every one that gets hung. That's not the answer. Jails don't fix societal ills!!!

Read "Ishamel" by Daniel Quinn

Figuring out what’s wrong has become a global preoccupation. People of all ages are working on it —people of every social and economic class, every political persuasion. Ten-year-old kids are trying to work it out. I know this because they talk to me about it. I know this because I’ve seen them pause in the midst of play to give it their attention.

Every year more and more children are born out of wedlock. Every year more and more children live in broken homes. Every year more and more people are bruised and battered by crime. Every year more and more children are abused and murdered. Every year more and more women are raped. Every year more and more people are afraid to walk the streets at night. Every year more and more people commit suicide. Every year more and more people become addicted to drugs and alcohol. Every year more and more people are imprisoned as criminals. Every year more and more people find routine entertainment in murderous violence and pornography. Every year more and more people immolate themselves in lunatic cults, delusional terrorism, and sudden, uncontrollable bursts of violence.

The theories that are advanced to explain these things are for the most part commonplace generalities, truisms, and platitudes. They are the received wisdom of the ages. You hear, for example, that the human race is fatally and irremediably flawed. You hear that the human race is a sort of planetary disease that Gaia will eventually shake off. You hear that insatiable capitalist greed is to blame or that technology is to blame. You hear that parents are to blame or the schools are to blame or rock and roll is to blame. Sometimes you hear that the symptoms themselves are to blame: things like poverty, oppression, and injustice, things like overcrowding, bureaucratic indifference, and political corruption.

These are some of the common theories advanced to explain what’s gone wrong here. You’ll hear others. Most of them have to be deduced from the remedies that are proposed to correct them. Usually these remedies are expressed in this form: All we have to do is . . . something. Elect the right party. Get rid of this leader. Handcuff the liberals. Handcuff the conservatives. Write stricter laws. Give longer prison sentences. Bring back the death penalty. Kill Jews, kill ancient enemies, kill foreigners, kill somebody. Meditate. Pray the Rosary. Raise consciousness. Evolve to some new plane of existence.


You need to read the entire book to get the point. Can;t explain here. I can say only "stop trying to fix the engine on the car with square wheels - our civilization"

I love this bit from David Ickes recent talk in Los Angeles last October where he asks,

What is money?

I think he nails it right on the . ... and make a darn good point as to just ho criminal (maybe not legally criminal but definiely against humanity) all these bankers are.. the entire system stinks.

Gaah...

The only reason why the economy is in the tank is because we don't have a metal standard, same with your economy...

Don't go blaming individuals when your system is at fault. The central bank did it there like the fed did it here.

We haven't had any money backed by any form of metal since 1970...

Theonly bit of metal that has any value in money is the metal strip they run through each note.

And if I'm not mistaken, it's the Fed Res that sets the trend for the entire global economy due to its once dominating Dollar.

I disagree. The individuals drive the system. I think you need to do a bit of reading before you open your yap because you obviously don't know what you are talking about.

I'm sorry for being rash but good god man... are you for real??!

Metal standards would not end our problems. Gold is easy to monopolize, it would likely make things worst. Besides, who do you think owns most of the gold in the world?

The answer is simple : Respect.

The respect we have towards one another has all but gone. We are a society of individuals with selfish goals. Look after number one to the detriment of all others.

That attitude explains it all.

Please don't start me with the religious cr.p, all that is is a "group of individuals" with a common cause who have no respect for other groups. They always say they do but never actual behave that way!!!

And it is mostly because of the greed and need for money that has caused this disrespect.

When I was a kid, I knew most of the people in my street... now I am lucky to know my neighbour, which I don't. Our communities have been destroyed, our self respect has been pushed into 'designer' clothing and equipment.

Some one once said to me that respect could only be earnt by the job you do and what you earn.. I had a long conversation with him about that..

We used to be able to leave our front doors open while we popped up the shop, but now, because of greed and the strength of the hold that money has on us., most houses are now alarmed, some have cctv.

We have become paranoid, not capable of holding a conversation with our neighbours, isolated from each other... Why?... because we must work for the bankers to pay the banker back the money we owe from birth..to pay the debt that is forced upon us through no choice of our own.

Slavery was supposed to have been abolished many a year ago...
