    They’ve put bankers and ex-bankers in charge all throughout the world. Bet you within 12 months of no longer being in Parliament he’ll be back working at the top tiers of the international banking fraternity…not that he ever left.

      NZ was a little detour and will look good on his CV. Was in NZ Parliament for… too many years and was Prime Minister for…same, of the remnants of the democratic country of New Zealand, a country of four islands in the South Pacific. (Including the Chathams of course.)

    “In 1953, the CIA worked with the United Kingdom to overthrow the democratically elected government of Iran led by Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadegh who had attempted to nationalize Iran’s petroleum industry, threatening the profits of the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company, now known as BP. Declassified CIA documents show that Britain was fearful of Iran’s plans to nationalize its oil industry and pressed the U.S. to mount a joint operation to depose the prime minister and install a puppet regime. In 1951 the Iranian parliament voted to nationalize the petroleum fields of the country”.

    Nothing much has changed.

      Nothing at all has changed. Plenty of reports out there saying that the USA has received a steady stream of info for months now about the build up and mobilisation of ISIS/ISIL forces but ignored it – as they knew that one way or another it would destabilise (or hopefully get rid of) al-Maliki’s government which they have now decided needs to be gone (mostly due to Maliki’s strong pro-Iranian links).

        And very likely the threat of regime change, or withdrawal of capital, by our US corporate masters, is, the real reason why our Governments, even Labour ones, are reluctant to become “too socialist”.

    I put up that great number Money money from Cabaret yesterday. I knew it was central and how soon it has proved to be. I was reading another view of WW1 and WW2 than previously seen, and that puts the wars largely on the laps of bankers. Might be a simplified view but we don’t know the whole story of anything it appears. Ever.
