httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v-YJPdBHbP4

The above YouTube video tells the horrific story of Ray Fox, the man who claims he and his family were contaminated by illegal unauthorized toxic outflow from a Shell terminal in Earley, near Reading, England.  At one stage, Ray was treated by a specialist in Germany for radioactive poisoning.

Almost a year ago we published an extensive article on the subject. Ray also believes that contamination from Shell’s terminal killed the parents of his adopted son Christopher, who himself was diagnosed with leukemia. read more

Ministry cannot account for where £1bn went in Saudi oil-for-jets affair

DAVID HENCKE

DETAILS OF a damning secret report into Britain’s biggest ever arms deal, which raises questions over how the Ministry of Defence spent more than £lbillion, can be disclosed for the first time by The Sunday Telegraph.

A National Audit Office (NAO) investigation into the controversial £20 billion al-Yamamah arms deal between Britain and Saudi Arabia found that:

  • The MoD could not properly account for nearly £1billion of cash it paid to British Aerospace (now Bae Systems) at the time of the deal;
  • Bae also “failed to account” for the £1billion;
  • A£30.3 million management fee was paid to Bae even though there was no “legal or contractual obligation” to do so – a payment described by auditors as “irregular”.

Documents also outline how auditors demanded that the Govemment investigate Bae accounts to find out what had happened to the money, and reveal the fears that led to the report being kept secret for 17 years. read more
