ORGANISED CRIME, 21st CENTURY BANKSTERS ARE KILLING THE BBC
What a rare moment of razor-sharp clarity this week as a spotlight was shone deep into the rotten heart of Westminster, Whitehall and the City of London.
The Daily Mail revealed, one day after her appointment, that new BBC chief, Rona Fairhead, is being sued for supervising the laundering of billions of dollars for the Mexican drug cartels.
From the Establishment dominated corporation there was not a hint of repentance, instead a secret gagging edict was issued to BBC staff not to mention or discuss the fact anywhere, specially on social media.
Rather than running the BBC as HSBC 'Head of Risk' Ms. Fairhead has just been appointed to do, the bank's crooked bosses should be being investigated by the corporation and prosecuted by Scotland Yard. Not only have the bank that was built on the illegal Hong Kong Shanghai opium trade committed every fraud in the book, they are also fleecing rail passengers in a cartel of three Rolling Stock Operating Companies (ROSCOs).
HSBC's rent seeking 'Eversholt Rail Group', has a virtual monopoly in leasing trains to privatised operating companies which mean British commuters pay up to ten times more than their continental counterparts to get to and from work every day.
Millions of Brits await the BBC Panorama documentary exposing Rona's firm's crimes but we better not hold our breath if she is allowed to take up her post.

LONDON AS MONEY LAUNDERING CAPITAL OF THE WORLD
Just last week former Scotland Yard Fraud Squad detective Rowan Bosworth-Davies revealed senior figures at the annual 'Cambridge Conference on Money Laundering' (CCML) presenting shocking evidence that the City of London is the money laundering capital of the world. The Cambridge revelations went entirely unreported in the London media revealing that, far from speaking truth to power, their role is now to prop up the City's dying reputation. Immunity from any laws has quietly, since the sabotaged 1992 "Blue Arrow" trial, become the City's "unique selling point".
The BBC and Parliament are aware of the poison senior bank executives bring. The chairman who dragged Barclays through billions of LIBOR fraud, Marcus Agius was forced to resign from the BBC Executive Board in 2013.
Worried banksters are sinking their teeth into top BBC committees like Komodo Dragons killing a great old Wildebeast.

CAN TV JOURNALISTS DISH DIRT ON THEIR BOSSES?
It's a tale eerily reminiscent of Channel 4's classic 1980s cyber punk series 'Max Headroom' which portrays the weekly adventures of beleaguered TV news reporter Edison Carter. Week after week Carter battled to tell stories of corporate corruption, often within his own ruthless 'Network 23' and their biggest advertiser, the 'Zik-Zak Corporation'.
Organised crime's biggest fears are to either be jailed, or outed on national television which is why bankster wealth has been desperate to buy the BBC off for decades.

CIVIL SERVANTS PAID BY THE PUBLIC TO WORK FOR THE ELITE
But the real devils of this perfidious litany are parliament's Culture Media and Sport select committee who appointed Ms. Fairhead. Not only did these MPs sign up to the trashing of the public interest putting a bankster fox in charge of the newsroom henhouse represents, they failed to notice Rona has no relevant experience whatever for the job.
DCMS civil servants who prepared papers for the committee must have known what crooked favours for crooked friends were passing across their desks, so they too are culpable.

TWENTY YEARS TO BRING A GREAT INSTITUTIONS TO ITS KNEES
Ever since Victor Rothschild and Margaret Thatcher conspired in 1987 to remove the brilliant Director General Alasdair Milne the move toward privatisation has been inexorable. When DG John Birt brought in 'Producer Choice' in 1990s the writing was on the wall. All BBC departments were 'marketized' with all contact between the corporation's compartments, eg. sport, local radio, continuity or reference library tracked and charged for. It was a control freak's charter.

HER MAJESTY'S OPPOSITION, NOTABLE BY ITS ABSENCE
Recently resigned BBC Chairman Chris Patten had a big personal financial finger in Bridgepoint, one of the private healthcare vultures currently devouring the National Health Service. Patten is a former chairman of the Conservative party who was roundly voted out as an MP in the 1990s by the good people of Bath in Somerset. Slated to replace him was another Tory, the former Olympic runner Lord Coe.
So where have Labour been while the Tory party have made the BBC their private property over the last decade? Silent.
Even when "the people's DG" Greg Dyke was sacked in 2003 for telling the truth about the "sexing up" of the Iraq "WMD" dossier we heard nothing from Labour. How, after all, could Tony Blair be wrong?

BBC - A TOOL OF THE TITANS
British journalism is already on its knees because of sweeping newsroom cutbacks, so a BBC controlled by banksters will see UK social justice dealt what may well be a final body blow. Pre recorded broadcast 'news' and newspaper desktop publishing also mean managers control what journalists are allowed to tell us like never before.
Post 9/11 'war footing' excuses for secret NSA/GCHQ hacking means the military can track journalists research as we prepare stories. Then the military can watch, word by word, in real time as we write and act to censor publication like never before.

THE 9/11 EFFECT: TARGETING DOMESTIC THOUGHT CRIMINALS
US newspapers exposed last week that there was "no legal basis" for George W. Bush's secret 2001 extension of the NSA's mass surveillance powers. Western governments have been using the "9/11 effect" to discard civil liberties right across the West. The real agenda of course is to increase military spending and destroy the very civil liberties our leaders pretend to hold dear.
In a "State of Emergency" the BBC Agreement provides for producers and journalists to be shut out of the corporation. Their jobs being done by Defence Ministry employees.
Freelance expert writers such as former ambassador Craig Murray and author of "Shredded" the expose of RBS, Ian Fraser have, since 9/11, found interviews cancelled at the last minute. Perhaps this is how the post 9/11 "war footing" BBC operates today? If GCHQ snoopers don't like an interviewee they simply tell the BBC to cancel it?

THE NERVE GAS OF RUPERT MURDOCH
As we found out from the 50 year long suppression of the Jimmy Savile paedophile story the establishment stranglehold on British journalism was already pretty tight.
As Pink Floyd's Roger Waters wrote in his Orwellian opera "The Wall", which still echoes round the world as an ambassador for British culture, "The [news]paper holds their folded faces to the floor. And every day the paper boy brings more". Yes indeed. There are indeed too many rich and ever more powerful people in the Western world, many of them criminals, who want the public to stay ignorant.
When the job of running Britain's national nervous system can go to someone with such an obvious personal interest in pumping it full of sarin gas, there can only be a few convulsions left, between here and tyranny.
The hour is late. Some creative oxygen must be pumped into Auntie's system before she keels over, leaving the English speaking world clear for the cancer that is Rupert Murdoch.
And yes, I am available Wink

Revealed: Tax scandal-hit HSBC is paying an astonishing £513,000 in fees to BBC Trust chairman
Rona Fairhead paid '£10,000 a day' by bank accused of helping tax avoiders
Chairman of the BBC Trust was paid more than £500,000 by HSBC last year
Dwarfs the £110,000 she is paid to oversee BBC on licence fee payers' behalf
MPs have called for her to quit one of her posts due to 'conflicting interests'
By MILES GOSLETT and MARTIN BECKFORD and SIMON WATKINS FOR THE MAIL ON SUNDAY

PUBLISHED: 23:46, 28 February 2015 | UPDATED: 13:44, 1 March 2015
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2973908/Tax-scandal-hit-HSBC-p aying-astonishing-513-000-fees-BBC-Trust-chairman.html

The woman who leads the BBC is being paid a staggering £10,000 a day by the scandal-hit bank accused of helping millionaires to avoid paying tax.



The Mail on Sunday can reveal that Rona Fairhead – chairman of the BBC Trust – was paid more than £500,000 last year by HSBC for non-executive roles carried out working the equivalent of one day a week.

Last night MPs said the astonishing payment from the bank raised questions about her priorities, as it dwarfs the £110,000 salary she is paid to work the equivalent of three days a week to oversee the BBC on behalf of licence fee payers.

Salary: Rona Fairhead (pictured) – chairman of the BBC Trust – was paid more than £500,000 last year by HSBC for non-executive roles carried out working the equivalent of one day a week

And Mrs Fairhead's earnings don't stop there. She also earns £130,000 to be a non-executive director for American soft drinks giant PepsiCo.

The 54-year-old businesswoman was last night under pressure to quit one of her high-profile roles because of the competing demands on her time and fears over conflicts of interest.

Mrs Fairhead has faced criticism for her role as a non-executive director at HSBC after BBC1's Panorama programme broadcast damaging allegations that the bank's Swiss arm helped wealthy clients dodge millions of pounds in British taxes. HSBC then faced claims that it tried to influence media coverage.

Mrs Fairhead has so far declined to answer questions about what she knew about the Swiss bank's activities when she was the chairman of HSBC's audit committee.

But she has also faced a grilling from MPs over allegations that HSBC allowed terrorists and Mexican drug cartels to launder millions of pounds, for which the bank was fined a record £1.2 billion in the US in 2012.

Last night the BBC insisted she had not taken part in any discussions about its coverage of the bank. But the tax evasion claims have been discussed at board level within HSBC. And if the bank complains about the BBC's reports, the Trust could be asked to adjudicate.

Critics said that Mrs Fairhead should choose between working for HSBC or the BBC Trust, which could be scrapped along with the licence fee by MPs.

Tory MP Andrew Bridgen said last night: 'Mrs Fairhead may claim she can cope with all these responsibilities but I think the licence fee payers will expect her to choose where her loyalties are ahead of the most important BBC charter renewal in its history.'

Rona Fairhead answers questions at her pre-appointment hearing

And Labour MP Steve Rotheram, who sits on the Culture, Media and Sport Committee that quizzed Mrs Fairhead before her appointment, said: 'It's going to be very difficult for her to have two such high-profile jobs at the moment.

'Both institutions need to have a real focus on scrutiny.'

Mrs Fairhead, who was made a CBE in 2012 for 'services to industry', joined the board of HSBC in 2004. The married mother of three was chairman of its audit committee in 2007, when its Swiss subsidiary is alleged to have been involved in a tax-dodging scheme that deprived the British Government of millions of pounds.

She was then head of HSBC's risk committee in 2012 when the bank was fined £1.2 billion for breaching US money-laundering laws.

This newspaper can reveal that her pay packet from HSBC rocketed last year after she was appointed non-executive chairman of HSBC North America.

She received £494,000 in pay and £19,000 in benefits, including travel expenses to fly to chair meetings of the North American arm, despite only working 'maybe 50 days a year' by her own estimate.

She attended seven board meetings and four gatherings of the nominations committee last year.

Analysis of accounts published last week show the businesswoman also holds shares worth about £441,000 in the bank.

Mrs Fairhead took up another American boardroom role with PepsiCo a year ago, which takes up 25 days a year, and will receive annual pay and shares worth about £130,000.

Last June she was approached by head-hunters to apply for the vacant position of chairman of the BBC Trust, which is meant to set the broadcaster's strategy and hold TV executives to account, after Lord Patten of Barnes stood down following heart surgery.

Mrs Fairhead has taken over at a critical time for the future of the BBC. It must agree with the Government a new Royal Charter setting its size and purposes by the end of 2016. Just last week the cross-party Culture, Media and Sport Committee said the £145.50-a-year licence fee is outdated and that the BBC Trust should be replaced by a tougher external watchdog.

When Mrs Fairhead was grilled by MPs last September about where her priorities lay, she insisted the BBC position would not be a 'full-time executive role' but that she would put it ahead of her corporate interests if it came to the crunch.

HSBC documents show she intends to keep her role at the bank, and will stand again as a non-executive director at the bank's next annual general meeting next month.

A spokesman for Mrs Fairhead said: 'Rona was not at any time involved in any discussions at HSBC specifically about the bank's dealings with the BBC.' The BBC Trust said: 'Rona Fairhead has had absolutely no discussions with the BBC, either the executive or the editorial teams, about the HSBC coverage.' HSBC declined to comment.

Margaret Hodge, chairman of the Public Accounts Committee, called on Mrs Fairhead to say what she knew about the tax-avoidance claims. 'She's been very silent since the HSBC debacle broke, and I think she has got to answer questions.'

BBC Trust vice-chair criticised over role in defence company
Campaigners say Sir Roger Carr should be ousted from corporation’s governing body due to his chairmanship of BAE Systems
BBC Trust vice-chairman Sir Roger Carr has been criticised over his role at BAE Systems
Rob Edwards
Friday 24 April 2015 11.40 BST Last modified on Friday 24 April 2015 11.42 BST
http://www.theguardian.com/media/2015/apr/24/bbc-trust-vice-chair-sir- roger-carr-bae-systems

The head of a £16bn defence company accused of arming dictatorships should be ousted from the governing body of the BBC, say campaigners.

Sir Roger Carr, chairman of Europe’s biggest arms dealer, BAE Systems, is due to start work as vice-chairman of the BBC Trust on 1 May. But a campaign has been launched to get him sacked because of fears that he could influence BBC coverage of the arms trade.

A petition demanding his dismissal has been signed by more than 5,500 people, and is due to be handed in to BBC Broadcasting House in London on 30 April. “Arms industry executives have no place in public service broadcasting,” it says.

BAE Systems has sold weapons to Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Libya, United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, which have all been criticised for poor records on human rights. Saudi Arabia has reportedly used the company’s Eurofighters in recent attacks on Yemen.

“BAE Systems has made its money through arming dictatorships and human rights abusers around the world,” said Andrew Smith from Campaign Against Arms Trade, which is organising the petition.

“Carr is the public face of the company and is the last person who should be given the legitimacy of a role at the heart of public broadcasting. Not only does his appointment send out a terrible message, it also raises serious concerns about how the appointment might impact on the BBC’s coverage of the arms trade.”

Carr was appointed to the BBC Trust post, which pays £70,610 a year, for four years by ministers. He is a member of David Cameron’s Business Advisory Group.

As chairman of BAE Systems he earns £650,000 a year. He has previously chaired Thames Water, Cadbury and Centrica, and been deputy chairman of the Bank of England as well as a past president of the CBI.

The BBC Trust’s job is ensure that the BBC delivers its mission to “to inform, educate and entertain.” It sets strategic objectives and is “the guardian of licence fee revenue and of the public interest in the BBC”.

“Trustees have no influence over the editorial decisions taken at the BBC”, said a spokeswoman for the trust. “All decisions about editorial output are taken by the BBC executive.”

The Department for Culture, Media and Sport pointed out that candidates for the BBC Trust were asked to flag any conflicts of interest. “Where raised, these are discussed with the selection panel,” said a department spokesman. “There were no concerns in relation to Roger Carr.”

A spokeswoman for BAE Systems described the company as world class. “We are proud of the vital role we play in helping our customers safeguard national security,” she said.

“We operate to high standards of ethical business conduct as a responsible and trusted partner to legitimate governments following all applicable international defence export regulations.”

Rona Fairhead: Friends in high places
City Insider 1 May 2015
http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/2a1f556e-ef1d-11e4-87dc-00144feab7de.html
She might miss the £500,000 pay packet. But Rona Fairhead won’t miss the flak. HSBC announced at last Friday’s annual shareholder meeting that Ms Fairhead, a former CEO of the Financial Times group, will step down from her non-executive role at the bank next year. Until a few months ago, she had been expected to stay on. Then she got caught up in HSBC’s Swiss tax avoidance row. Parliament’s public accounts committee savaged her for failing to spot what was going on a decade ago. Committee chairwoman Margaret Hodge called her “either incredibly naive or totally incompetent” — a portrayal that has lost some of its sting since Ms Hodge was criticised over her family’s offshore tax arrangements. It was too late for Fairhead, though. Shareholders had been calling for her head, too.
Chairing the BBC Trust now becomes even more of a priority. Assuming no more skeletons emerge, she looks like she has fended off Hodge’s most barbed comment: “You should think about resigning [from the BBC too] and if not, I think the government should sack you.” Just as well. City Insider hears that her incoming vice-chairman, City veteran Sir Roger Carr, simultaneously chairman of BAE Systems, was only persuaded to take up the role on the assurance that Fairhead was secure in her job. A defence expert may make a handy sidekick, though.
