Dr Alf is correct, the banks are not only an oligopoly but fall under the ownership of a tiny group of families.

Thus, if one looks at the power behind Lloyds, TSB, HBOS, Santander, RBS, Goldman Sachs, Barclays and Five Arrows Asset Management, we see that along with other financial institutions, they come under the influence of the Inter Alpha Banking Group and ultimately the shadow of the Rothschild dynasty.

HSBC originally founded by the Scottish Taipans, the Matthiesons, who were the drug barons of Queen Victoria’s day is also owned by one family.

These families, and 19 others, effectively control more than 95% of the wealth in each European nation, plus an even larger amount that is held offshore in one of many different tax havens.

They, through their various organisations, like the Bilderberg Group, the Club of Rome, the Club of Budapest and the Alimentarius Commission control Europe and the UK.

Thus the UK is a Rockefeller country, Germany and Sweden are Rothschild countries and Italy and the Vatican are run by the Black Nobility and the Black Pope (currently Adolpho Nicholas).

The Knights of Malta under Matthew Festing are also globally important and act as a state within a state.

Essentially then, our Prime Ministers and Presidents within Europe are chosen well in advance of us seeing them let alone voting for them so Governments do not control bankers, electors do not control Government policy and Governments in Europe are told what to do by bankers and those behind them.

Until this changes, there is no chance whatsoever of politicians “going after bankers” and if they did the banking public would be made to pay as has already happened in America when the US authorities fined HSBC $1 billion USD for laundering the proceeds of Mexican drug barons.

HSBC reduced its taxable profits by $1 billion USD plus the court costs, fines and a further charge for management time and business disruption.

The costs of new procedures and more transparent Governance also figure into the equation and with costlier arrangement fees for all loans all the money will be recovered and the costs passed on to HSBC’s customer base.

What Dr Alf has identified is a situation in the NHS tantamount to corruption and malfeasance and a flagrant disregard for patients who are frequently told that no money is available for treatment or for particular drugs whilst NHS managers are terminated on Friday, paid off on Saturday and start work again on Monday hundreds of thousands of pounds richer.


We are told by Government Ministers that this is all down to an “inherited situation” from the “last Labour Government ” and that “their hands are tied”.


This is blatantly untrue because if people have manifestly failed in their roles and allowed patients to die needlessly as many NHS managers have, the correct course of action is dismissal for “industrial misconduct “, in which case all you are entitled to is a P45, the words “you are dismissed” and your marching orders.


In the case of Colchester Hospital, where managers fiddled figures and altered computer records to meet targets then instant dismissal and investigation by the Essex Police, trial and (if found guilty), jail is the right approach.


Government Ministers who sanction this sort of gravy train are beyond contempt as is David Cameron the man who is responsible for it all.


The NHS is an expensive basket case in which people who have serious illnesses are either killed off or sent home to die because the money to look after them properly is being wasted on payoffs to useless people.


NHS Consultants are interested in fee paying patients such as the Russian oligarchs and Arab oil Sheiks, who inhabit the upper floor of the Royal Free but not expendable NHS patients who cannot begin to pay.
NHS Managers are interested in themselves, their next “gig” if they are an interim, the size of their payoff and their next role if they are permanent.


Experience and “recency ” of experience rule, “Gordon Gekko” is still alive and for these NHS Managers “Greed is Good“.
