Wall Street Journal Censored by UK Judge

wsj-censored

You can read the judge’s order here. Extraordinary that we can’t report the names of alleged LIBOR fraudsters, this is against the principles of open justice and freedom of the press. Even more extraordinary is that it was the Serious Farce Office that invited the defendants to apply for reporting restrictions. The prosecuting authority encouraged the defendants to seek anonymity. Bonkers…

      It’s a good chance that the Yanks would like a word in their ears, and apply for extradition of those involved, if they are found guilty in USoA they would do bird ford a very long time.

    The simple solution is to transfer the fixing of overnight bank rates to a Nasdaq style institution.

    At the same time the FTSE could be swopped over to such a system too.

    Some questions re the ongoing McC-unts case:

    Why have the McC-unts’ story changed multiple times over the years?

    Why did Kate refuse to answer 48 questions when she was interviewed by police after reporting the disappearance?

    Why was blood found in the boot of their car?

    Why did Gerry delete his entire call history after the disappearance?

    Why did they spend donations from the public on mortgage repayments and a brand new plasma TV?

    Why did they write a book and go on lecture tours when their child is still “missing”?

    Why have the Tapas 7 never been formally interviewed by police?

    Why did they leave three children unsupervised and alone in a villa in a foreign country so that they could go and have dinner with friends at a restaurant?

      Some answers says:

      Why have the McC-unts’ story changed multiple times over the years?
      Because they lied in their original statements. The story has varied to cover the lie and the truth is slowly coming out.

      Check the PJ files for the official lies.

      What happens in the media not under oath is irrelevant.

      Why did Kate refuse to answer 48 questions when she was interviewed by police after reporting the disappearance?
      Exercising her right as aguido to silence. Nothing incriminating, just following legal advice.

      Why was blood found in the boot of their car?
      Because there were traces of blood discovered there.

      Better question: How did the blood come to be in the boot of the car ? It could have been ‘planted’.

      Why did Gerry delete his entire call history after the disappearance?
      An attempt to conceal his phone records from the PJ.

      Why did they spend donations from the public on mortgage repayments and a brand new plasma TV?
      Fund is a limited company. These were legit expenses for that company.

      Why did they write a book and go on lecture tours when their child is still “missing”?
      To keep pressure on authorities to continue searching, and to raise ‘funds’ for their private search.

      Why have the Tapas 7 never been formally interviewed by police?
      They have. Both statements in P’ortugal and rogatory interviews after their return to UK. Check PJ files.

      That there are inconsistencies which have not been followed up is a better question.

      Why did they leave three children unsupervised and alone in a villa in a foreign country so that they could go and have dinner with friends at a restaurant?
      They seemed to be aware that there was a problem with p’edo rings in P’ortugal so one must assume that they felt they were somehow protected from that. They clearly did not risk assess correctly, or understand their legal responsibilities as parents.

      That issue needs to be addressed formally once it is determined what happened to M. Either way they were complicit in what happened, if only indirectly.

    Someone will scan and tweet eventually.

    One of the more damning parts of this is that the inter-dealer broker model which exists in L’ondon is now shot to pieces.

    To illuminate: Trading between banks for certain products has to go through brokerage houses to ensure the dealers remain separate. This is to ensure a free and fair market exists and prevent dealers from colluding.

    That the brokers were involved, not to mention a central bank was directing commercial banks, exposes the whole notion of ‘free and fair market’ in L’ondon to be false.

    The brokers have let themselves down quite badly here.

    The efficient markets hypothesis which underpins the regulatory environment in L’ondon is also proven false.

        Some in the US perhaps want to push RMB trading towards F’rankfurt away from L’ondon.

        This is why judge has put the block in place: This is a wrong move.

    How will this work?

    No direction given as to how this order should be notified to third parties whatsoever e g notifications in national press.

    Also no reference as to costs. I suspect they have decided the taxpayer will be footing the tab.

    Is there any reason to employ a silk for this?

    The matter will be heard again on 21 Oct.
