YES, I did read your OP.
You could have ADDED to CHAD's thread.
But anyway, I guess you don't get any validation when you do that do you.


Anyone got any spam?

These types of companys always remind me of movies like resident evil with the umbrella corporation
Either way, this is something we should deffinetly look into, im surprised Serco doesn't come up to often here on ATS.

then I have a question for you later in this post...


You could have ADDED to CHAD's thread.


As I'd already put in the effort of typing the OP before finding Chad's thread, and upon finding that no one was paying attention to his thread, I decided to go ahead and post it, along with a recognition & direct link to chads as I felt a new thread would better serve the purpose of getting the public's attention to this information (& his thread), as opposed to adding a singular post (which at the time was all I had to offer) to an older thread which had already (no offence to Chad) faded into the background - unlikely to be seen again.



But anyway, I guess you don't get any validation when you do that do you.


Anyone got any spam?


ok man, I put into words my intentions with this thread & those words were pretty clear to understand & I gave positive feedback to the posters here who recognised that intent. Asides from yourself, most people seem to have understood & expressed that understanding by giving this thread at least 3 more flags since this morning, without additional stars, which is fine by me
its the info that matters......

the same info you aren't adding any valuable contributions to.


I actually saw this on the ABC's Hungry Beast.
I think you link it.


yes I link it, you could have read back & discovered that yourself,
instead of posting the question - thus contributing to the thread which offends you so.



Search function.
www.abovetopsecret.com...


I did use the search function, when I did the search, I found the thread you've linked there, and linked it in the opening post. Which begs the question obvious to some - "why the need to repost the link, if he had already read the OP and seen the link was already posted here????"

you're argument as a whole, makes no sense.

This post is the last time I'm going to participate in these kind of 'trollish' debates, as it detracts from the value of the thread & information herein.

I am only posting now to set the standard & as an example case.

what has happened between myself & "atlasastro"
Is not productive or desirable for this thread.

Now that Chad & I are 'on the same page' about this thread (as established a while ago through private U2U's) & as he pointed out -


Hey mate, thanks for having my back but as long as the message gets out there I'm not too fussed who gets the stars and flags.


- hopefully the 'trolling' will stop.

Kind regards,
-B.Morrison

back on topic

Alright everybody, I just made a realisation, I knew this info was/is important,
I committed to doing this thread, and its a complete & total cop-out for me to then go ahead and say I can't be bothered doing the research, I committed to posting the thread, and how can I expect anyone to value the knowledge enough to do the research themselves, If I don't at least participate myself.

So....

stopcp.org brings up -

Sorry! We could not find www.stopcp.org
It may be unavailable or may not exist. Try using the suggestions or related links below, or search again using our web search.


cpexposed.com -

cpexposed.com subject to takedown notice!
Please spread the word as fast as possible:
cpexposed.com has been taken down by the web hosting company, Hostgator, as the result of a complaint by Common Purpose alleging copyright infringement.

pdf of notice for download

this alone means little until you take into consideration -

We are puzzled since all the documentation is in the public domain, and has been for some considerable time.

the takedown notice was an unjust action.

Maybe this has happened because we recently posted information from Common Purpose’s own website showing the links between the Scottish paedophile James Rennie and the Common Purpose organisation

CP had a reason to try to silence them.

Spread the word.

just did

Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.

here's hoping

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
and about SERCO....

the death of a 24-year old African asylum seeker in Yarlswood to the death of 14-year-old 'model trainee' Adam Rickwood, and another prisoner dying from meningitis because guards ignored his pleas and calls for medical help
source

Are they somehow un-policable? if so, any ideas how can this problem be addressed?

for that matter,
what can be done about this corporation (and those like it) in general?
what exactly is the threat & what are legal ways to counter that threat?
would be good to know....

Christopher Rajendran Hyman, Interesting article


"I am very passionate about our values and building this company not to make a profit," he says. "If profit is an immediate by-product, then that's wonderful ... If you can make it have an impact on society, people's lives and make it fun, crumbs, then we don't have to worry about making this profit or that. It happens naturally."

"You can choose to leave a mark or you can choose not to. I tell people here: if you can make a difference in whatever you do, bid it. Don't give me a proposal that makes a shed-load of money - will it be a better place when you leave than when you arrived?" He insists Serco was founded with these values; he has just capitalised on his inheritance and stressed honesty as the best policy when dealing with all management issues. He doesn't pretend to agree just to make a subordinate feel better, for example.



Hyman's life changed when he found himself in the World Trade Centre on 9/11. He does not want much of this "traumatic" experience to appear in print but admits it made him, a workaholic who sleeps for only a few hours a night, want to spend more time with his family.


www.guardian.co.uk...



Hyman said Serco's next big expansion could be into India, where Serco already employs 800 staff backing its operations in other parts of the world.

"India already has a middle class of 200 million people and it is growing," said Hyman. "It is a territory we are familiar with and we will take a look over the next few years."

Its funny that you should post that. My very first thought when I saw this thread was "ARBco" (an anagram of Cobra.) ARBco was used as a front and corporate office for Cobra Command in the G.I. Joe series.

Brennan isn’t the only cheerleader for intelligence contracting on the Obama transition team.

Obama’s transition team announced that two other prominent contractors, Maureen Baginski and Robert Harding, would help lead the transition at the ODNI. Baginski, the NSA’s former director of signals intelligence, is a director of SI International, the NSA contractor now owned by Britain’s Serco. She also sits on the board of MTC Technologies, a major player in the Pentagon’s intelligence system now owned by BAE Systems, another British company.

Clearly, the intelligence community and its partners in the intelligence contracting industry and must remain under the closest scrutiny possible. Perhaps the incoming congress will exert a new interest in intelligence oversight and accountability - including the contractors that now eat up 70 percent of the intelligence budget.

Maureen is the one who just got the new position at SERCO. She was part of Obama transitioning team.

Wow, contractors eat up 70% of intel budget. I for one never knew that. Wonder if that is a correct number?


Yes its true - just did a dissertation on this.
The US military Budget comprises around 60% of total outlays - (socialism at its best), - 70% of THAT is intelligence, and 70% of that is privatised.

In fact the forward planing is operated by a private round table of the six majors with "representatives" making up three positions - this is no bull - the entire planning and strategic forward planing of the US is done by a private corporate round table - the evidence is in

I saw this very informative factual & entertaining video explaining just what Serco do. Everyone 'denying ignorance' owes it to themselves to watch this 2minute video. It will change your perspective on a lot of important things.

Serco are responsible for controlling & maintaining many dodgy things for the governments of -
Australia,
America,
the U.K,
Canada,
Ireland & the united Arab emirates.

their staff is 85% comprised of Ex-Public Servants (government)
They own the contract to set Greenwich mean time,
and practically everything else you wouldn't want dodgy people to have power over.
They are present in the military industrial & prison industrial complexes of most of the countries listed above, and that is never a good combo either.

If indeed a NWO scenario was to occur,
Serco would most definitely be involved in the implementation & maintenance.

I recognise the danger of this corporation and just listening to the list of what they own is unsettling. I encourage everyone to watch this video and get educated


VIDEO: Caught in the SERCO Spider web

This info was previously made available by ATS member Chadwickus who has done far more research than I, in a thread with several other reputable sources, and no one bothered to give a damn. Upon discovering this thread just then I will provide a link back to his thread from here, so please at the least go and review the additional information available there after watching the above video.

In Canada, the Province of Ontario outsourced driver testing in 2003 to Serco Group, a British corporation that signed a 10-year, $138 million contract with the Progressive Conservative government.

They just put us through a 4-and-a-half month strike at the 93 driver examining centres across the province. There is now a backlog of 300,000 drivers waiting for road tests. It could take up to a year to catch up.

Some of the drivers awaiting testing were truckers whose livelihood depends on the successful completion of testing.

Serco has also faced criticism for inconsistent rates of failure among their test centres.

Scary stuff SERCO have controlled since inception almost , the entire nuclear capability of the U.K armed forces!
Thats alone sent shivers up my spine but coupled with the rest of the information on this thread I will have to keep a beady eye on this lot.
Thank you B for bringing this to my attention

Thanks for your info, I also never had heard from them before. Their involvement in numerous countries makes them a major global player, who is interested in building an interconnected governmental-corporate cartel. SERCO is also starting to infiltrate military, education, police system and other areas in Germany. This company seems to be very good at pushing PPPs in many countries.

The German branch is relatively small with 800 employees and 35 branch establishments. They run the first partly privatized German prison (JVA Hünfeld). I guess if this privatisation trend continues and a prison industrial complex develops here in Germany, we will see more prisoners in the future.

I currently try to find out if the leadership of the German branch is interwoven with think tanks and political parties. But after a quick scan I haven't found much. SERCO seems to be run by different people, than important German think tanks and lobbying groups like the Bertelsmannstiftung, the ECFR (European Council on Foreign Relations), Common Purpose Deutschland and INSM (Initiative Neue Soziale Marktwirtschaft).

I have a Masters in International Relations from one of the best Universities in the World - you want to have a another crack at me champ?

I know an awful lot more than you EVER will on this subject - watch who you have a go at because you just made a total fool of yourself.

And yes - military spending is the ultimate form of socialism - it is you who has NO IDEA WHAT SOCIALISM IS -.....

Further what relevance does the political leanings have regarding Peter Singers work ? Hmm ? Please enlighten me with your decades of academic wisdom ? Sweet FA thats what. He is respected across the political spectrum, his works are non-partisan and academic.

Stop thinking you know something about anything because you spend time on the internet - it is simply full of half wits who regurgitate moronic inanities they gleaned from other moronic half wits - when you have studied in an high level academic environment you can speak with authority on such issues - as it stands you don't know anything - so do not insult me by attempting to belittle my post which is more reliable than anything else on this site -

To the original poster - fantastic post - irrelevant whether or not it had already been posted - I have studied with great diligence the role of corporations within the deconstruction of democracy, their subversive rise to power, their usurpation of power across the political, economic, religions power spectrum from the historical records of KBR (fascinating early foundations people) right through - literally dozens upon dozens of text and have never heard of this corporation - this is an EXCELLENT piece of work - thanking you VERY MUCH.


To make a contribution on this subject of little known power corporations I think I should Mentioned a corporation called Hills and Knowlton - this corporation is responsible for maintaining and delivering propaganda for public support in the UK and US for the vast majority of illegal operations by governments and corporations - they are very, very powerful - check em out.

While we are at it - see if anyone can find out about Trilac Partners.

Nor was I suggesting it was, However,
GMT is one of the many things that control of has been outsourced to a corporation and is one of the many things in SERCO's portfolio that should never have been privatised.

So personally the only question I think needs to be addressed here, is what are our options to remedy this problem?

-B.M

P.S) one idea is exposure/boycotting these companies. I am an artist/musician and know there are plenty of awakened & passionate artists in all fields who could knock up some wonderful works exposing these companies, everyone knows these words - bilderberg group, rockerfella, jp morgan, jackyl island, etc..... they've become almost as 'household' bad guys as the joker from batman....

Maybe one thing that could help get the word out about corps like - walmart, SERCO, and as mentioned by audas - Hills and Knowlton
could be to take the idea that they are the new "faces of evil" and artistically present that perspective to the public. I'm thinking T-Shirts with logos & "the new face of ...?" but the idea would need a lot of work......just an example of what could be done, alternatively you could go a different way and use advertising techniques & strategies to sell the perspective, the same way the corporations you are fighting, would advertise themselves. Use their own tricks against them....?

thanks for your contribution G.G.

Someone could use examples like these in art to get the message of SERCO's immoral business practices out to the public, all posts with first hand stories like this or objective information like the many links stories & companies now being mentioned on this thread along with thoughtful discussions are welcomed, encouraged and get a star from me

I've recently been watching a lot of Michael Parenti lectures (can be found on google video) trying to understand some of - capitalism, socialism, globalisation, etc. And he suggests that everything boils down to being different offshoots of the exact same thing - capitalism, he then goes on to say that like all the other countries he listed - capitalist Russia is broke - getting poorer, due to the constant privatisation of industry. Sounds like this same thing is happening in Germany and the rest of the world.....?
