Historic Case Against the BBC’s Cover Up of 9/11 Evidence

Published on Feb 24, 2013

The BBC is being challenged strongly for its refusal to present to the British public the available scientific evidence which contradicts the official version of events of 9/11. Thank you very much to all those who have sent letters to their MPs asking that the BBC be held to account for withholding this evidence that the public must be allowed to see.

As a further progression of this campaign, a great opportunity has arisen. 9/11 truth documentary maker Tony Rooke has been granted a court hearing where he is challenging the BBC’s support of terrorist activity through supporting the cover up of the true evidence of 9/11. The court case will take place on February 25th at 10.00am at the address below. Real 9/11 evidence has rarely, if ever, been presented in a British court room, so this is a rare opportunity. Any support from the public on the day would be fantastic and will help to send the message that the people want to know, and deserve to know, the truth about 9/11.

This court case is based around Tony making a stand and refusing to pay his TV licence fee under Section 15 of The Terrorism Act 2000 Article 3 which states that it is offence to provide funds if there is a reasonable cause to suspect that those funds may be used for the purposes of terrorism. The BBC has withheld scientific evidence which clearly demonstrates that the official version of events of 9/11 is not possible and could not have been carried out in entirety by those who have been accused by our officials. In addition, the BBC has actively blocked and smeared those attempting to bring this evidence to the public. By doing this the BBC are supporting a cover-up of the true events of 9/11 and are therefore supporting those terrorist elements who were involved in certain aspects of 9/11 who have not yet been identified and held to account. A new and independent investigation is required to determine what really did occur on 9/11, and by whom, otherwise these unidentified terrorist elements will remain free to potentially commit further terrorist activities.

Tony has been charged with a crime for not paying his TV licence fee, however, he has lodged a legal challenge to this charge and has now been successful in being granted an appearance in a Magistrate’s court where he has three hours available to present his evidence to defend himself against the charge. Tony has formed a formidable team to support him in presenting the evidence, including the following two outstanding individuals:

ITALIAN SAYS 911 SOLVED

It’s common knowledge, he reveals, CIA, Mossad behind terror attacks

By the Staff of American Free Press

December 24, 2007

Former Italian President Francesco Cossiga, who revealed the existence of Operation Gladio, has told Italy’s oldest and most widely read newspaper that the 9-11 terrorist attacks were run by the CIA and Mossad, and that this was common knowledge among global intelligence agencies. In what translates awkwardly into English, Cossiga told the newspaper Corriere della Sera:

“All the [intelligence services] of America and Europe…know well that the disastrous attack has been planned and realized from the Mossad, with the aid of the Zionist world in order to put under accusation the Arabic countries and in order to induce the western powers to take part … in Iraq [and] Afghanistan.”

Cossiga was elected president of the Italian Senate in July 1983 before winning a landslide election to become president of the country in 1985, and he remained until 1992.

Cossiga’s tendency to be outspoken upset the Italian political establishment, and he was forced to resign after revealing the existence of, and his part in setting up, Operation Gladio. This was a rogue intelligence network under NATO auspices that carried out bombings across Europe in the 1960s, 1970s and ’80s. Gladio’s specialty was to carry out what they termed “false flag” operations—terror attacks that were blamed on their domestic and geopolitical opposition.

In March 2001, Gladio agent Vincenzo Vinciguerra stated, in sworn testimony, “You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple: to force … the public to turn to the state to ask for greater security.”

Cossiga first expressed his doubts about 9-11 in 2001, and is quoted by 9-11 researcherWebster Tarpley saying “The mastermind of the attack must have been a sophisticated mind, provided with ample means not only to recruit fanatic kamikazes, but also highly specialized personnel. I add one thing: it could not be accomplished without infiltrations in the radar and
flight security personnel.”

Coming from a widely respected former head of state, Cossiga’s assertion that the 9-11 attacks were an inside job and that this is common knowledge among global intelligence agencies is illuminating. It is one more eye-opening confirmation that has not been mentioned by America’s propaganda machine in print or on TV. Nevertheless, because of his experience and status in the world, Cossiga cannot be discounted as a crackpot. Source

OFFENSIVE – THE STORY OF TONY FARRELL

Tony Farrell is a former Intelligence Analyst for South Yorkshire Police Department. In 2010 he was fired because he felt compelled by his conscience to tell the truth in his official report and state that due to his extensive analysis of 9/11 and the 7/7 London bombings, the greatest terrorist threat to the public did not come from Islamic extremists but from internal sources within the US and British establishment. He is now dedicating his life to helping to expose the truth and he is challenging his dismissal through international court. Tony Rooke has recently produced an excellent documentary called ‘Offensive — the story of Tony Farrell’ based around the story of Tony Farrell.

There may be a few things you have not seen or heard.

9/11 investigators have a lot of evidence that does not fit the Official story.

Research Operation Gladio. There are numerous sites out there that will explain how it worked and they probably do still exist. They may call it by a different name. Why would they Stop?

Operation Gladio

from the book

The CIAs Greatest Hits

by Mark Zepezauer

The CIA was created by the National Security Act of 1947. The ink was barely dry on it before an army of spooks began marching through the law’s major loophole: the CIA could “perform such other functions and duties…as the National Security Council may from time to time direct.” This deliberately vague clause opened the door to a half-century of criminal activity in the name of “national security.”

One of the first duties the NSC deemed necessary was the subversion of Italian democracy…in the name of democracy, of course. Italy seemed likely to elect a leftist government in the 1948 election. To make sure Italians voted instead for the candidates Washington favored-leftover brownshirt thugs from Mussolini’s party and other Nazi collaborators-millions of dollars were spent on propaganda and payoffs. It was also intimated that food aid would be cut off if the election results were inconsistent with US desires.

The US got its way in 1948 without having to resort to violence but-as was discovered in 1990- the CIA had organized a secret paramilitary army in postwar Italy, with hidden stockpiles of weapons and explosives dotting the map. Called Operation Gladio (gladius is Latin for sword), the ostensible excuse for it was laughable-the threat of a Soviet invasion. But the real purpose wasn’t so funny-Operation Gladio’s 15,000 troops were trained to overthrow the Italian government should it stray from the straight and narrow.

Similar secret armies were formed in France, Belgium, the Netherlands and West Germany- often directed, quite naturally, by former SS officers. They didn’t just wait around for the Russians to come marching in; they assembled huge arms caches (many of which remain unaccounted for), compiled blacklists of leftists and, in France, participated in plots to assassinate President DeGaulle.

Many members of Operation Gladio were also in a shadowy organization known as P-2; it too was financed by the CIA. P-2 had connections with the Vatican and the Mafia, and eventually with an international fascist umbrella organization called the World Anti-Communist League.

One of P-2’s specialties was the art of provocation. Leftist organizations like the Red Brigades were infiltrated, financed and / or created, and the resulting acts of terrorism, like the assassination of Italy’s premier in 1978 and the bombing of the railway station in Bologna in 1980, were blamed on the left. The goal of this “strategy of tension” was to convince Italian voters that the left was violent and dangerous-by helping make it so. Source

UK warns of Israel travel amid passport scandal

March 24, 2010

London, England

British citizens who travel to Israel should be aware that their passport details could be captured for “improper uses,” Britain’s Foreign Office warned Tuesday.

It follows Britain’s expulsion of an Israeli diplomat and its accusation that the Israeli government was responsible for forging British passports used in an international murder plot.

Foreign Secretary David Miliband said Tuesday that there are “compelling reasons” to believe Israel was behind it.

Twelve suspects in the January murder of Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, who was found dead in his Dubai hotel room, used British passports, the Dubai police have said.

Miliband said the passports had been copied from “genuine British passports” in a “highly sophisticated operation,” indicating that a state intelligence service was responsible.

The Foreign Office changed its official travel advice Tuesday for British citizens going to Israel, to warn them about the risk of their passport details being compromised.

A British investigation “found circumstantial evidence of Israeli involvement in the fraudulent use of British passports,” the advice says. “This has raised the possibility that your passport details could be captured for improper uses while your passport is out of your control. The risk applies in particular to passports without biometric security features.

“We recommend that you only hand your passport over to third parties, including Israeli officials, when absolutely necessary.”

Britain’s Serious Organised Crime Agency concluded that the 12 British people whose passports were cloned were “wholly innocent victims of identity theft,” the foreign secretary said.

Israel has a stated policy on security matters of neither confirming nor denying involvement.

Australian Foreign Minister Stephen Smith said the British government would be giving its report on the passports to the Australian Federal Police, who are investigating how some of their country’s passports came to be used by the Dubai suspects.

In an interview Tuesday with the Australian Broadcasting Company, Smith said Australia was not taking any action yet.

“We have an investigation underfoot, and we will await the results of that investigation by the Australian Federal Police,” Smith said.

He added: “We’re treating this matter very seriously. Israel understands that, and when I receive the report (from the federal police), we’ll make judgments which will be in Australia’s national interest.”

Dubai police had previously said three Australian passports were used in the murder plot, but Smith said there were four. He said there is nothing to indicate that the holders of the passports were anything but “innocent victims” in the crime.

Al-Mabhouh, a founding member of Hamas’ military wing, was found dead January 20 in his Dubai hotel room. Police believe he was killed the night before, allegedly by the secretive Israeli foreign intelligence unit Mossad.

A source close to the investigation said Wednesday that the total number of suspects had increased to 28, from 27, after Australia confirmed the use of a fourth passport.

Six suspects used Irish passports, four used French documents, one had German papers and four had Australian papers. There is also one Palestinian suspect, police have said.

Interpol expands search for suspects

Lt. Gen. Dahi Khalfan Tamim, Dubai police chief, has said not all the suspects had fraudulent passports. “We know some of the names are real,” he said.

Interpol, the international police agency, has issued “red notices” to help search for the suspects. The notices are not international arrest warrants, but are a way of alerting police forces around the world that the suspects are wanted by United Arab Emirates authorities.

My advice is no one should travel to Israel.  They could use you as their newest terrorist. It could be your passport they find at a so called terrorist bombing site. It could be your passport found at the next car bomb incident.

It could be your passport used for the next assassination.

South African Dock Workers to Boycott Israel

By Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
February 5 2009

Israel faces a new boycott as the huge Cosatu trade union of South Africa vowed to refuse “apartheid Israeli” goods due to arrive in the port of Durban on Thursday and Sunday. The union previously has refused to unload goods from countries it calls “dictatorial and oppressive.”

The local Palestine Solidarity Committee and Young Communist League announced a series of protests starting on Thursday in Durban, Johannesburg, Cape Town and the city of Benoni, according to the South African Daily News website. “This follows the decision by Cosatu to strengthen the campaign in South Africa for boycotts, divestment and sanctions against apartheid Israel,” they explained.

The union also revealed that western Australian workers refused to handle Israeli goods.

“We call on other workers and unions to follow suit and to do all that is necessary to ensure that they boycott all goods to and from Israel until Palestine is free,” said the joint statement by Cosatu and the Palestinian and Communist committees.

The union called on workers all over the world to follow suit in an effort to strangle Israel economically. A boycott by dockworkers “should shockwaves to [Israel’s] arrogant patrons in the United States who foot the bill for Israel’s killing machine.”

The South African Jewish Board of Deputies charged that the union’s is a political action intended “to show its muscle” towards upcoming national elections. “It is a pity Cosatu cannot show the same solidarity with its own brothers in the African continent,” Board chairman Zev Krengel told the Daily News. “More than 3,000 people in Zimbabwe have died of cholera, yet we do not see any protest about that.”

Foreign Minister spokesman Yigal Palmor said responded, “If these people think that by refusing to unload shipments from Israel they are promoting peace, they should go back to school because they have misread the situation in the Middle East big time.”

In Turkey, the Consumers Association has urged a boycott on Israeli products, and the Muslim Consumers Association of Malaysia is calling for a boycott of products by several large United States companies to protest the American government’s not denouncing Israel for the Cast Lead counterterrorist campaign in Gaza.

Among the companies whose products consumers are urged to avoid are Colgate-Palmolive Co., Coca-Cola and the Starbucks coffee chain. A similar boycott in the country aganist McDonalds’s has proven ineffective.

SAPA: Workers to boycott Israeli ship

South African Transport & Allied Workers Union

South African Transport & Allied Workers Union

Durban dock workers are expected to refuse to off-load an Israeli ship as part of a week of action against “apartheid” Israel, Cosatu and the Palestine Solidarity Committee (PSC) said on Tuesday.

Cosatu spokesperson Patrick Craven and PSC spokesperson Salim Vally said dock workers would refuse to off-load the ship arriving on Sunday, February 8, as part of a refusal to support oppression and exploitation across the globe.

SA Transport and Allied Workers’ Union (Satawu) general secretary Randall Howard said the union’s members were committed to not handling Israeli goods.

Last year, Durban dock workers refused to off-load a shipment of arms from China that was destined for Zimbabwe.

The arms would have been used to “prop up the Mugabe regime and to intensify the repression against the Zimbabwean people”, Craven said.

“In 1963, just four years after the Anti-Apartheid Movement was formed, Danish dock workers refused to off-load a ship with South African goods.

“When the ship docked in Sweden, Swedish workers followed suit. Dock workers in Liverpool and, later, in the San Francisco Bay Area also refused to off-load South African goods,” he said.

Western Australian members of the Maritime Union of Australia supported the “campaign for boycotts, divestment and sanctions” against Israel and had called for a boycott of all Israeli vessels and all vessels bearing goods arriving from or going to Israel.

“This is the legacy and the tradition that South African dock workers have inherited, and it is a legacy they are determined to honour, by ensuring that South African ports of entry will not be used as transit points for goods bound for or emanating from certain dictatorial and oppressive states such as Zimbabwe, Swaziland and Israel.”

Cosatu called on other workers and unions across the globe to follow suit and to do all that is necessary to ensure that they boycott all goods to and from Israel until Palestine was free.

The week of action would include a protest in front of the South African Zionist Federation and the South African Jewish Board of Deputies in Johannesburg on Friday, a rally on the same day in Actonville on the East Rand and a picket in front of Parliament in Cape Town.

The protest would be addressed by Howard and former Intelligence Minister Ronnie Kasrils, Craven said.

The rally on Friday would be addressed by Vally, Cosatu general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi, South African Council of Churches general secretary Eddie Makue and Kasrils.

A protest at Durban harbour and a rally in Cape Town were planned for Sunday February 8, Craven said.

Anti-Apartheid Talk a Hit at UCLA
By Pat McDonnell Twair

(L-r) Diana Buttu, Rev. Makue, and Katherine Fuchs (S. Twair photo).

AS PART OF a national U.S. tour entitled “Separate Is Never Equal: Stories of Apartheid,” sponsored by the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, South African Rev. Eddie Makue and international law advocate Diana Buttu spoke Nov. 19 at the University of California, Los Angeles.

“As a black person, I was essentially born guilty in apartheid South Africa.” explained Reverend Makue, who has been an activist for three decades. He stated that the implementation of separation laws is more severe in Palestine than it was in his homeland. “My liberation will not be complete until the people of Palestine are free,” he vowed.

Buttu, who was born in Canada to Palestinian Israeli citizens and holds a master’s degree in law from Stanford University, worked on litigation at the International Court of Justice in The Hague, Netherlands, which decreed Israel’s apartheid wall to be illegal.

“Instead of implementing the World Court’s ruling and dismantling the wall, Israel said ‘so what?’” stated Buttu. She noted how Israel cuts off Jews from Palestinians with a separate Jews-only highway system, checkpoints to cripple Palestinian movement, curfews and economic controls. Gaza has been blockaded into a walled open air prison.

Campaign national organizer Katherine Fuchs advised the rapt audience that the best means to stop Israeli apartheid is to follow the South African tools of boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS).

The Campaign has focused on boycotting two U.S. corporations which sell equipment to Israel: Motorola and Caterpillar.

Motorola manufactures fuses used in Israeli MK-84 bombs, mountain roads security systems Israel uses in its truck-mounted checkpoints, and Wide Area Surveillance Systems (WASS).

“Write letters to Motorola protesting this and let it know you will boycott all its products,” Fuchs urged.

A national campaign targeting Caterpillar shareholders is making inroads, she added. Increasingly at each annual meeting, shareholders complain about Caterpillar selling mammoth D-9 bulldozers used to demolish Palestinian homes.

“Check if your university endowment funds include Motorola and Caterpillar and insist that it divests them,” Fuch said.

During the question-and-answer session, the audience groaned when a coed asserted that Israel strives for peace.

“If Israel wanted peace, it would stop building settlements,” Buttu responded. “The fourth largest Israeli political party is calling for the expulsion of Arab citizens.”

The coed then directed a question to Reverend Makue: “Blacks never bombed whites in South Africa like Palestinians do Jews in Israel.”

Makue replied: “Show me any Palestinian who is implementing apartheid laws. The word terror is being abused. Apartheid created terror against blacks.

“Apartheid laws were drawn up in South Africa and in Israel in 1948. Nelson Mandela recognized the similarities and cooperation of these two systems. In 2007, when the United Nations asked Nobel Peace Laureate Bishop Desmond Tutu to see firsthand conditions in Gaza, the Israeli government barred him from entering.”

Buttu concluded to the protesting coed: “You are implying only Palestinians commit terrorist acts. Dropping bombs on civilians, targeting children is terrorism. Focus on the disease of occupation and lack of freedom rather than on their symptom of violence.”

Irish Civil Society Calls For Boycott of Israel

January 31 2009

The following letter was published in a full-page advertisement in The Irish Times on 31 January 2009:

The original ad, including signatures may be downloaded here. [PDF]

Israel’s bombardment of Gaza killed over 1,300 Palestinians, a third of them children. Thousands have been wounded. Many victims had been taking refuge in clearly marked UN facilities.

This assault came in the wake of years of economic blockade by Israel. This blockade, which is illegal under international humanitarian law, has destroyed the Gaza economy and condemned its population to poverty. According to a World Bank report last September, “98 percent of Gaza’s industrial operations are now inactive.”

The most recent attack on Gaza is only the latest phase in Israel’s oppression of the Palestinian people and appropriation of their land.

Israel has never declared its borders. Instead, it has continuously expanded at the expense of the Palestinians. In 1948, it took over 78 percent of Palestine, an area much larger than that suggested for a Jewish state by the UN General Assembly in 1947. Contrary to international law, Israel expelled over 750,000 Palestinians from their homes. These refugees and their descendants, who now number millions, are still dispersed throughout the region. They have the right, under international law, to return to their homes. This right has been underlined by the UN General Assembly many times, starting with Resolution 194 in 1948.

In 1967, Israel occupied the remaining 22 percent of Palestine: the West Bank and Gaza. Contrary to Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention, Israel has built, and continues to build, settlements in these occupied territories. Today, nearly 500,000 Israeli settlers live in the illegal settlements in the West Bank (including East Jerusalem), and the number grows daily as Israel expands its settler program.

Israel has resisted pressure from the international community to abide by the human rights provisions of international law. It has refused to comply with UN Security Council demands to cease building settlements and remove those it has built (Resolutions 446, 452 and 465) and to reverse its illegal annexation of East Jerusalem (252, 267, 271, 298, 476 and 478). Since September 2000, over 5,000 Palestinians, almost 1,000 of them minors, have been killed by the Israeli military.

Eleven-thousand Palestinians, including hundreds of minors, languish in Israel jails. Hundreds are detained without trial. In addition, Israel is breaking international law by imprisoning them outside the occupied territories, thereby making it almost impossible for their families to visit them. Every year, hundreds of Palestinian homes are demolished. The Palestinian population of the West Bank and Gaza livesw imprisoned by walls, barriers and checkpoints that prevent or impede access to shops, schools, workplaces, hospitals and places of worship. They are subjected to restrictions of every kind and to daily ritual humiliation at the hands of occupation soldiers and checkpoint guards.

Source

Invasion, occupation and plantation of their land is the reality that Palestinians have faced for decades and still face on a daily basis, as their country is reduced remorselessly. Unless, and until, this Israeli aggression is halted, and the democratic rights of the Palestinian people are vindicated, there will be no justice or peace in the Middle East. Israel’s 40-year occupation of the West Bank and Gaza must be ended.

The occupation can end if political and economic pressure is placed on Israel by the international community. Recognizing this, the Palestinian people continually call on the international community to intervene.

We, the signatories, call for the following:

  • The Irish Government to cease its purchase of Israeli military products and services and call publicly for an arms embargo against Israel.
  • The Irish Government to demand publicly that Israel reverse its settlement construction, illegal occupation and annexation of land in accordance with UN Security Council resolutions and to use its influence in international fora to bring this about.
  • The Irish Government to demand publicly that the Euro-Med Agreement under which Israel has privileged access to the EU market be suspended until Israel complies with international law.
  • The Irish Government to veto any proposed upgrade in EU relations with Israel.
  • The Irish people to boycott all Israeli goods and services until Israel abides by international law.

Academic boycott of the Israeli terrorist state spreads to US, Canada, & Al-Quds University

Academic boycott of Israel spreads to US & Jerusalem universities

Monday February 02, 2009 03:18 by Saed Bannoura – IMEMC News

Hundreds of professors and scholars in the US have, for the first time, joined in an academic boycott of the terrorist state of Israel, in an effort to pressure the Zionist racist Israel to end its occupation of Palestinian land, and disenfranchisement of the Palestinian people. In addition, Al-Quds University in Jerusalem, a Palestinian-run university, has joined the call for boycott.

The US boycott comes in the wake of dozens of similar boycotts launched in various parts of the world, including in England, Spain, Canada and Australia.

The Canadian boycott began in Quebec when academics signed a letter stating:

“We are a group of teachers and employees at Quebec colleges and universities who stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people, and with the people of Gaza who have suffered through the Israeli siege as targets of Israel’s brutal military attack. It will take more than ceasefires to bring a just and lasting peace in Palestine and Israel. We are acting in response to an appeal for support issued January 2, 2009 by the Palestinian Federation of Unions of University Professors and Employees. In the wake of the Israeli bombing of the Islamic University of Gaza, the Federation of Unions has urged academics around the world to support a boycott of Israeli academic institutions.” The Canadian Union of Public Employees Ontario proposed, “Israeli academics be barred from speaking, teaching or conducting research at the province’s universities unless they condemn Israel’s actions in Gaza.”

In the US, professors and scholars declared, “As educators of conscience, we have been unable to stand by and watch in silence Israel’s indiscriminate assault on the Gaza Strip and its educational institutions.” They launched the U.S. Campaign for the Academic & Cultural Boycott of Israel after Israel’s 3-week long assault on the Gaza Strip which ended on January 18th, in which 1400 Palestinians were killed, many of them civilians. The professors call for divestment initiatives and boycotts of Israeli academic institutions and joint educational and cultural initiatives. They make a comparison between the Israeli occupation of Palestine and the apartheid policies of South Africa, which ended in 1993.

al-Quds University in Jerusalem, with branches in the West Bank, has stated that it will phase out all cooperation with Israeli universities. In a statement issued by the University, officials stated:

“If the two-state solution is as far away today as it was ten years ago, there is no justification for continued academic cooperation based on reaching that solution. And there is no justification for continued official and non-official cooperation in other fields, foremost security coordination between the Palestinian Authority (PA) and Israel. Ending academic cooperation is aimed at, first of all, pressuring Israel to abide by a solution that ends the occupation, a solution that has been needed for far too long and that the international community has stopped demanding.”

The University Board of Directors also noted that the decision to cut ties came “in response to the prior Israeli onslaught [on Gaza]; the acts and policies of Israeli governments over the past ten years, including settlement construction in East Jerusalem, the tightening of the siege on the occupied territories and thwarting any negotiated peace process that will lead to an independent Palestinian state living in peace alongside Israel.”

The UN is unable to get Israel to abide by the law. One has to wonder if they really even try. For About 60 years  Zionists in Israel have terrorized Palestinians and still no solution.

Boycotting Israel is the way to go.

Anyone who supports Israel in any way, is supporting their Genocide.

They are supporting Criminal activity including War Crimes. They are also supporting Apartheid. Israel is a threat to all  neighbouring countries as well. Israels weapons of mass destruction must be taken from them. They are more dangerous then any other country in the Middle East. They are the problem. They threaten everyone continually.

Israel is the terrorists in my opinion. They terrorize everyone with their threats.

The US must stop all Aid to Israel as well. They need 6.5 million a day for what? To bomb their neighbours maybe?

Zionists are nothing but warmongers just as George Bush and company were. Over the years they are and always have been the problem.

Jews in Syria get along just find.  Jews in Iran get along just fine. They are treated with respect and allowed to practice their religion freely. The  problem is Israeli  Zionists. They are fanatics. They use the propaganda machine to try and make themselves look so sweet and innocent. It is just that propaganda and lies.

Zionists betrayed their own people and still do. Reading this might give you an idea of how far they will go. The Holocaust Victims Accuse

Brown to act over credit card rate rises

By Andrew Grice

November 12 2008

Gordon Brown ordered a crackdown on credit and debit card rises yesterday after The Independent revealed that banks had raised rates even though borrowing costs had fallen.

The Government has called a summit with the credit card industry, which will be held soon, at which ministers will ask lenders to draw up a new “statement of best practice” to protect their customers. If the statement is not tough enough, ministers might ask the Office of Fair Trading to take action against individual firms. Ministers want to ensure the 1.5 per cent base rate cut announced by the Bank of England last week is reflected in interest rates on credit cards. They also want companies to stop using small print in contracts to raise rates suddenly and to give more support to people who run into problems.

The Government wants a pledge for “clear and fair principles” to apply to the costs people face on existing debts and that only “responsible lending” will be entered into in future.

The Prime Minister intervened after research for The Independent showed that while the base rate had fallen from 5 to 3 per cent since May, the average annual percentage rate for credit cards had increased from 17.2 to 17.6 per cent, and on store cards to 25 per cent. Mr Brown told a Downing Street press conference: “We have got to bring the credit card industry in, talk to them, so they join with us in enabling clearer principles to apply to the costs people face.” His spokesman said Mr Brown was “very concerned” about the behaviour of some credit card companies.

Ministers are expected to reject a cap on interest charges. Gareth Thomas, Consumer Affairs minister, said: “Interest rates are going down and we want people to benefit from those interest rate reductions.” Latest figures showed spending was lower and repayments higher than three years ago.

Well The ones in the US are worse then those from the UK much worse and they have been uping the interest to as high as 32%. Hy way robbery theirs are.

Banks Ripping off Credit Card Customers
Well the higher the interest the more in debt people get and the more bankruptcies there will be.

Being greedy is self deductive.

Lets face it banks haven’t been exactly to bright these days.
