FINANCIAL TIMES EXPLAINS GALLEON INSIDER TRADING ALLEGATIONS

Not sure whether FT allows you to link to its articles. You may have to register and go to its interactive section yourself, but this is just too useful not to draw to your attention….honest…and there’s a list of other articles linked at the foot of the graphic. Haapy clicking!

“FURIOUS” MET CHIEF ABANDONS PLANS FOR ARMED PATROLS

Wow! Lets see if a Labour council can get away with calling the cops to account once the Tories are in power. But the principle matters and if Boris J establishes it for all council-police relations we will be creeping back towards democratic accountability in the UK

DUTCH DISEASE

Interesting tale of a Dutch bank and banker who had lots of fun, made lots of friends in the political class and then went bankrupt. Crimes of the powerful? How many more are there to go phut?

POLICE IN £9 MILLION SCHEME TO LOG “DOMESTIC EXTREMISTS”

Plod seeks to record dissidents and deviants as usual. Pretending that they are potential terrorists, presumably. All this nopnsense set up by ACPO, which used to be a Chief Constables’ Trade Union and is now apparently a private company [go check its web site and weep!] It sells services commercially. Could that be why the police prioritise business and the state above the citizen taxpayer, who actually pays their wages?
There is no legal basis for an offence of domestic extremism and therefore no basis for invading citizens privacy. Just who is it in the police who hates democracy this much? I think we should be told!

INQUIRY FAILS TO FIND SINGLE TRAFFICKER WHO FORCED ANYONE INTO PROSTITUTION

Analysis of the figures for those arrested during Operation Pentameter 2. Actually, there were 5 people jailed for coerced prostitution, but they had been arrested or inquiries had begun before Pentameter. More people are coerced into work than into prostitution. This was a huge operation, too. So have we been conned by NGOs with an interest in exaggerating the phenomenon? id like to see the police report rather than a newspaper account.

HALIBURTON PLUMBS NEW DEPTHS

This has to be read! These companies are denying employees access to the courts as well as using the courts to prevent us finding out what they get up to. Trafigura’s disgraceful behaviour this week…or should that be Carter Ruck’s? is actually taken even lower by the behaviour of Haliburton as described here. Have lawyers suddenly lost their ethics? This is criminal behaviour by a group of people, a company even…so it must be organised crime. Allegedly aiding and abetting rape is what this amounts to.

COMMONS PROTEST AS TRAFIGURA GAG LIFTED

Carter Ruck withdraw attempt to prevent newspapers printing a parliamentary question, probably to prevent their action being tested in court and thus being prevented from trying it on again. Ethics? Nah, we’re solicitors. We dont have ethics.
