Is US or UK Behind False-Flag Sarin Attack in Syria?

April 9, 2017

The timing is suspicious.

No motive can be ascribed to President Assad.

The only ones that are benefiting are anti-Assads and hard-core Western terrorism-inciting and funding governments like those of the US and UK in particular.

It has never been shown conclusively that Assad’s forces ever committed any chemical attack in Syria.

In fact, in 2013 when the last red-line Sarin attack took place, Carla Del Ponte, a UN official, said on record that victims’ accounts rather pointed to the rebels’ involvement.

So is the US or the UK orchestrated the appalling gas attack?

I think, the impulse definitely came from somewhere in the bowels of the Trump administration but it was likely the British government that physically committed the heinous act in Idlib Province, Syria, through its agents there by launching a chemical Sarin gas attack as a result of which 100 people, including 21 children, died.

The attack has all the hallmarks of a US-ordered and British-executed atrocity.

We have seen it before, including during this ongoing tragic civil war in Syria which is only benefiting those who want to put down and bleed the entire Arab world (aka the US and Britain, also some in the EU).

My analysis of limited and heavily distorted information as well MSM decoding implicates the British government, its secret services and local agents, including so called White Helmets and British sponsored rebels and other British agents, in this attack.

The attack follows the similar pattern of previous false-flag chemical attacks in Syria apparently carried out by British government agents where they deployed chemical agents on a number of occasions targeting own civilians in rebel-controlled territories and then quickly publicized said attacks using fake social media accounts, puppet paid bloggers and twitter users on the ground and around the world and bogus groups like the London-based so-called “Syrian Observatory” which was set up and is curated by MI6.

However Britain could be double-dealing here and this attack also appears to be the latest step in the British government’s month-long campaign to undermine President Trump personally (probably in cahoots with some forces in the Trump administration itself and larger political establishment in Washington, D.C., aka the “swamp”) by making it impossible for him to carry out his pre-election promises which included a possible deal with Assad.

While making out as if taking and obeying orders from the US, the British government secretly also wants to involve the United States in another lengthy and preferably bloody war to shift attention from itself hoping that terrorists will then target US rather than British interests.

White Slavery on Rise in Britain

December 1, 2014

A BBC website piece – BBC News – Slavery levels in UK ‘higher than thought’

It says that there could be between 10,000 and 13,000 slaves in the UK, higher than previous figures, analysis for the Home Office suggests.

Modern slavery victims are said to include women forced into prostitution, “imprisoned” domestic staff and workers in fields, factories and fishing boats.

It said the victims included people trafficked from more than 100 countries – the most prevalent being Albania, Nigeria, Vietnam and Romania – as well as British-born adults and children.

A few things to note here.

Slavery is about the only thing that Britain could do well.

It appears Britain can’t quite forget its legacy of being the principal slave master of the world and one that extracted the most benefit from slavery. Huge capital inflows from massive operations to capture, transport and sell black Africans to slave owners in its overseas colonies funded Britain’s “industrial revolution” at the time which allowed the country to come to the fore of leading nations, albeit briefly.

Most of the economic assets that Britain still has were engendered by the bloody toils of the African black slave in one way or another and date back to the time of black slavery.

Now of course it cannot replicate anything remotely similar to its former government-funded slave running operations so it now turns its attention to “white” slavery… making slaves principally of white Eastern Europeans as well as of own British citizens, including thousands of British underage girls effectively toiling in the harems of criminal elements within the British Pakistani community.

Also, the British Government has been raising a huge stink in Europe and on the international arena recently all about depriving even immigrants from the EU of benefits hoping and even expecting that more will be driven into slavery and exploited in Britain for free.

MI5 Did It

July 7, 2013
Culpable: MI5

Culpable: MI5

Que bono?

Investigations into the 7/7 atrocity were completed but produced no evidence whatsoever of any terrorist involvement.

Instead, to a thinking person, they showed plenty of sign that the regime designated “terrorists” were shadowed at the time — no, even led on by MI5 — Britain’s internal secret state police modeled on Nazi Germany’s Gestapo but more ruthless and unprincipled.

MI5 needed a major boost in funding at the time and was facing a post-Cold war identity crisis and really could use a couple of spectacular bombings — preferably with multiple casualties, to say nothing of the fact that the “bombers” turned out to be MI5 agents themselves, whether rogue or otherwise, doesn’t really matter from the viewpoint of establishing and proving MI5 culpability.

7/7 was a masterstroke – a stroke of (evil) genius on the part of MI5. It got funding, elevated status, more rights and powers, assured future as a government agency; it got the chance to blame Muslims, to get rid of its troublesome agents, and some within MI5 ranks got medals, promotions and pay increases, even as the victims were still being treated in hospitals.

Que bono?

Only MI5 bono.

London, Global Capital of Money Laundering

November 20, 2012
London is the money-laundering capital of the world, according to a special six-page investigation published in a recent issue of Private Eye and reports in the blogosphere.

Richard Brooks, a former tax inspector responsible for Private Eye’s groundbreaking exposés of corporate tax avoidance, turns his attention to the dirty money flowing through Britain’s banks and tax havens and to proceeds of crime being laundered there.

Weeks after a US senate committee slammed Britain’s biggest bank, HSBC, for facilitating vast money-laundering operations, including washing money from Mexican drug cartels, he finds that light-touch banking regulation and a thriving network of tax havens, have made Britain the center of an embezzlement industry that steals billions from the world’s poor and underprivileged and is the largest contributor to Britain’s national budget.

Brooks has spent months tracking high-profile corruption cases as they make their way through British courts. He zeroes in on one of the most outrageous cases, that of James Ibori, former governor of the Delta State in Nigeria, who between 1999 and 2007, funnelled £200m of pounds of state money through British banks to fund an outrageously lavish lifestyle.

While many Nigerians went without basic education and social care, Ibori spent stolen loot on a Bentley, private school fees for his children, properties in Hampstead, a fleet of armoured Range Rovers and dozens of gambling trips to Las Vegas.

With the help of a British solicitor, Bhadresh Gohil, Ibori managed to sneak Nigerian wealth out of the country and launder it through HSBC and Barclays bank accounts, apparently in collusion with Britain’s secret services and senior government officials who all got their cut too.

It’s a complex story, in which dirty money zips between secretive tax havens, obscure front companies, and British high street banks. But, as Sasha Wass QC told the jury at Ibori’s eventual trial, ‘If you’re confused by this … that is exactly the idea.’

It was only when the eight police officers who make up the Met’s Proceeds of Corruption unit painstakingly followed the money that they managed to piece together what Judge Pitts, who sentenced James Ibori to 13 years at Southwark Crown Court in April this year, called ‘one of the biggest money laundering cases ever seen’.

But despite Ibori’s long sentence, the British banks who facilitated his crimes and so many others like it, have not seen the inside of a court room and are unlikely to any time soon.

Britain’s regulation-free tax havens, such the City of London; Guernsey; Jersey; Cardiff, Wales; Isle of Man and many others where stolen loot is stashed and the bankers who wash the money are still a long way from proper regulation.

Private Eye points out that Lord Green, a current trade minister and member of the Treasury team deciding how to reform Britain’s banks, was chief executive of HSBC during the years it was turning over hundreds of millions of pounds of dirty money. Which bodes well for the reformation of Britain’s corrupt mafia-run banks, doesn’t it?

London, Global Capital of Money Laundering

Was Roosevelt Poisoned by Churchill?

July 6, 2012

New Theory Claims Founder of America’s Modern Nation State was Bumped Off by British Rival
Roosevelt was being slowly poisoned with arsenic and then dispatched with a single dose of rat poison containing Thallium by British agents operating inside the White House

The founder of the US’ modern nation state Franklin D. Roosevelt died after being poisoned by his fierce political rival and enemy British PM Winston Churchill, one theory sensationally claims.

While Roosevelt was already in poor health, paralyzed from waist down, crippled by an attack of polio, Winston Churchill may have been slowly poisoning him for a lengthy period of time and then finished him off through his many agents in the State Department and even in the White House itself – after a bitter feud between the two Western leaders relating to the post-war fate of the British Empire which FDR aimed to dismantle.

Roosevelt, who ostensibly supported Churchill in his fight against Germany, in actual fact was as much or even more interested in fighting the British Empire. He wanted to make sure that there would be no return to the British colonial system after the war.

While the majority of the American and British political elites at the time were only too well aware of a bitter dispute between the two leaders, a different history has been supplanted since: a mass of lies and half-truths about a so-called “special relationship” between Britain and the United States, based on common ideals, supposedly supported by both Churchill and Roosevelt, and intended to last into the next millennium. This rewriting of history began almost immediately with FDR’s unnatural death in April 1945, and has continued to this day.

Although himself coming from a privileged Anglo-centric background, Roosevelt developed later in life very different views on Britain, and these views placed him firmly within a faction of American patriots, whose interests were opposed to British imperialism and Britain’s minions in the American financial and political establishment, centered around the Wall Street investment bankers, such as the Morgans, and in the State Department.

At that time already emerging as a spokesman for the British supremacists and imperialists was one Winston Churchill, a conservative politician, the archetypical “Colonel Blimp”. Churchill, who had an American mother, nevertheless hated everything American and especially the American people.

Churchill had planted scores of agents in the American government who liaised with him through the British ambassador, Lord Halifax, who on more than one occasion openly called Roosevelt a “liar” and “no friend of the British”.

Churchill had a very good reason to be fearful.

Behind Churchill’s back, Roosevelt discussed his anti-colonial strategy with Soviet Foreign Minister Molotov when the latter visited Washington in late 1942. He told Molotov that he felt that after the war it was going to be necessary to take colonial possessions away from Britain, “for their own protection”. Molotov gave him to understand that he was certain that Stalin would agree to these ideas, as he was favorable to other American proposals for the postwar world.

Churchill, meanwhile, was initially prepared to stall. FDR suffered from serious heart problems and hypertension, although his own physicians thought that he could survive through a fourth term. By late 1944, Churchill was in receipt of a secret briefing on the President’s health by Churchill’s personal physician Lord Moran: Roosevelt had only several months to live, at worst, perhaps a year. However, Churchill could not just wait for Roosevelt to die as he loathed uncertainty.

It was at this juncture that the British decided to move and thus had a direct hand in the President’s death according to the new theory. First, Churchill attempted to cause strain and to wear our Roosevelt through his insistence on two summits in Canada during the height of the campaign, and his delay of the proposed summit with Stalin until it required a precarious, 12,000-mile mid-winter trip to Yalta. When this plan didn’t work, Churchill took matters in his own hands altogether.

It is alleged that, on Churchill’s orders, FDR’s wife, Eleanor Roosevelt (who was a Lesbian and was recruited and blackmailed into obedience by the British) had fed him his morning porridge laced with rat poison (containing Thallium). Before that British agents had been trying to cause as much pain and suffering to Roosevelt as possible and to undermine his health and to impede his faculties by feeding him small doses of arsenic over a prolonged period of time – their preferred method of dealing with powerful foreign leaders, with whom they were not openly at war but whom they had reason to fear.

On April 12, 1945 Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 32nd President of the United States, patriot, and enemy of the British Empire, died of poisoning at the hands of the British whilst the official cause of death was craftily put down to “a cerebral hemorrhage”. Almost immediately, British agents moved to obliterate Roosevelt’s anti-British anti-Imperialist policies and his postwar plans whilst shamelessly and cynically laying down the foundations for the myth of a “special relationship”.

Presiding Over Britain: Current Unelected Capitalist Gangster Cameron

March 9, 2012

Cameron and His Predecessors Have Plundered the World for Hundreds of Years, but Though They Still Appear to be Going Strong Their Days are Numbered

For the past couple of years, David Cameron, the current incarnation of a thieving and murderous British ruler and his busy rump empire preserver sidekick William Hague, with the Queen as the nominal figurehead and too much influence behind the scenes even at her advanced old age, have been all engaged in a huge propaganda operation to fool the world and especially China, India, Brazil, Russia, the United States, Venezuela, Iran and other upcoming nations with huge currency reserves in a bid to make them part with a bit of said reserves.

With much fanfare, they have pretended to repair the “economy” of their benighted land by doing nothing but engaging in knee-jerk spending cuts, ratcheting up their self-aggrandizing rhetoric and trying to browbeat their unfortunate lenders into lending them even more money. Cameron even denounced Britain’s crony (and phony) capitalism, and they pretended to be friends with the new economic powerhouses of the world such as India and China whose economies are based on sound Marxist economic principles. At one point, in shameful duplicity, he even begged India to take Britain’s meager help offering of some hundred million British pounds (i.e. monopoly money)… in return of course for a mere trifle — India, you will please place a multi-billion dollar defense order with us, Britain…. well, it didn’t work in that case and neither should it work in any other case.

But this has been a sham to conceal the truth: that the British cannot any longer effectively govern themselves and will soon be forced to invite some clever people from India or maybe even China (that is, if they are not already there and in numbers not far below those of the “natives”) to do the job for them. The English do make excellent butlers and other domestic help, it has to be said, though you can never entirely trust them.

The corrupt ruling blood-soaked British regime has never had much to squander lately and so has never even had a chance to modernize their country — Britain — which is now fast rotting away.

The unelected British regime — the most murderous regime in continuous existence ever according to some counts — underpinned by the fraud they call their “democracy” has no real interest in friendship or co-operation with America, or China or India or Europe or anybody else really, whatever gullible Anglophile diplomats and officials may think the world over. It wants solely to be free to run their criminal offshore havens in the City of London and elsewhere to offer bespoke financial services to major criminals, thieves and fraudsters from all over the world to launder money and to provide terrorist funding in London, but will do everything in their power not to adopt the European Union’s standards of transparency, the values of liberty or the rule of law.

Farcical

In a rare moment of frankness Mr Cameron admitted recently that Britain has never been a democracy.

The British do occasionally — at very irregular and arbitrary intervals — have funny ballot stuffing exercises they call their “elections” but to call the events an ‘election’ in the true meaning of the word is an insult to true democracies. Real elections involve a real choice between real candidates, between real parties vying with one another to come to power, where the outcome is in doubt — but in Britain the outcome is never in doubt as one of the two government puppet parties inevitably gets to form the government (never even winning anything like a majority of votes).

In these farcical polls — in the shamefully rigged parliamentary ‘elections’ – which, last time they were staged, brought to power a puppet “coalition” government, still unelected, any candidate who could present a challenge to the ruling British regime and its criminal cronies, corrupt bankers or international terrorists has no chance of taking part, and is smeared, thrown excrement at, tarred and feathered, pilloried, barred, expelled or even suicided in a trademark MI5 style.

But even though candidates put forward by the British ruling junta have no real rivals at the polls, there is still a lot of electoral fraud taking place — for your average British politician just cannot refrain from stealing, lying or deceiving, engaging in fraud or perversions — even in cases where it is not necessary and where he doesn’t have to do it. In this they are helped by members of Britain’s second oldest profession — corrupt journalists and newspaper editors all with links to corrupt government officials, MPs (especially Labour MPs) and to MI6 and MI5 — Britain external and internal secret state police whose members are major terrorists and drug- and prostitution-running- people-smuggling criminals themselves.

UK regime apologists sometimes boast that there are over 200 political parties in Britain — but even here they are too stupid to realize that it only disproves their own argument — with so many parties, how come only the two “usual suspects” get to share in the spoils of government… not that there is much left to share or to steal.

Britain’s state-run BBC and other major “news” (read: propaganda) outlets, all government affiliated by way of that same crony capitalism, dutifully report the deeds of the bird-faced First Person and his rather Horse-Faced First Lady (Cameron has a thing about horses — more on that later) in cloying terms reminiscent of British imperial propaganda while craftily keeping the zomboid British public amused and “happy” with various interesting and curious snippets of information, amusing stories, scripted talk shows, zoo TV and radio formats and a healthy diet of British repetitive pop (read: zombi-like state inducing) music — to interfere with the thinking processes of the Brits, to make their heads spin, to give them constant tinnitus, to make them dizzy and confused, to make them think they are happy.

It portrays the regime as the guarantor of the future and stability of the “British” Isles — something many Brits already feel is slipping away from them — just like in the chaos and humiliation of the Seventies under the demented Harold Wilson (who however was far better still than any of the current crop of corrupt money-grabbing British politicians offering themselves to all and sundry for little sums of money).

The official media machine cheer-led by the shameful lying BBC also decries the regime’s opponents — the ordinary people camping and demonstrating on the filthy turd-littered  and urine-stained streets and squares of London, be it this week or last summer or all through the year, in their thousands — as either the “loony left” or labeling them as rioters like in the past summer. The barely concealed subtext is that they are in league with terrorists who are of course hellbent on causing havoc in Britain and so have to be summarily tried and sentenced in grotesquely unfair but lightning trials, locked behind bars for 4 years for a post on facebook.

The arrest of an alleged Muslim terrorist recently, and his fanciful confession that he had been instructed to blow up a British plane with his explosive underpants, which he supposedly was meant to activate by wetting and then soiling himself in quick succession, has all the hallmarks of the lame and cynical propaganda stunts previously employed by the UK regime.

Much of the current British political outlook was shaped by a series of devastating bombings on July 7, 2005 in which some 90+ people died and hundreds were wounded. The public believed Britain was under terrorist attack. In panic, they turned to their unelected rulers — who put up a strong show as men of steel — to deal with the threat. And the authorities were only too happy to oblige… provided there is ample funding of course.

But investigations produced no evidence whatsoever of any terrorist involvement but showed plenty of sign that the regime designated “terrorists” were shadowed — no, even led on by MI5 — Britain’s internal secret state police, which needed a major boost in funding at the time and was facing a post-Cold war identity crisis and really could use a couple of spectacular bombings, to say nothing of the fact that the “bombers” turned out to be MI5 agents themselves.

Those who investigate the undoings of the British regime, like the one that was staged on July 7, 2005, tend to end jailed or exiled, occasionally suicided like Dr. Kelly, killed by a lone gunman like Jill Dando (in reality, executed by an MI5 hitman), poisoned with radioactive polonium like rogue British agent Litvinenko, or tend to get killed by known British agents like what happened to Russian journalist Politkovskaya when they come too close to the sensitive raw truth about the crimes of the British regime, either international or domestic, and its links with terrorists.

Fear of such guilty secrets being exposed is one reason why the British authorities cannot allow meaningful democratic reform. They are prisoners of the system that their genocidal predecessors in power created and that they helped to perpetuate.

The murderous and thieving regime in London is however being slowly but surely exposed through actions of certain brave individuals, including myself.

They have to be careful — what with the gangsterism at the heart of the regime, epitomized by Mr Cameron’s bizarre penchant for stealing stainless steel tea spoons, hotel towers, bars of soap and neglecting to tip waiters, including recently engaging in improper conduct with an illegally obtained former police horse in one instance for which he incidentally “didn’t have” to pay and which he allegedly shared with Rebekah Brooks, a corrupt (no other kind) British newspaper editor.

Marsha Dristun, author of David Cameron’s recent unauthorized biography titled “Man with the Face of a Bird”, says Cameron suffers from schizophrenia encumbered with kleptomania and zoophilia, where satisfaction is sometimes gained through unusual channels of love.

Consider Britain’s patronage of international thieves and criminals such as Bill Browder, the protection that they give to British hedge-fund scam operators raping African nations and even vulnerable countries in Eastern and Central Europe and operating with impunity (of course provided they share with corrupt British government officials and MPs, such as David Miliband, Nadine Dorries, Chrys Briant, Denis MacShane and many, many others) from Britain’s many offshore zones such as Guernsey, Isle of Man, City of London, Cardiff, Wales, etc., and the stink they raise when British scams abroad are terminated — as in the case of that same Browder-Magnitsky criminal enterprise.

This is because the only way Britain can make money now is by stealing from the world, both from nations and from individuals, other than that they have nothing left — no industry, no resources, no nothing, just mountains of unpayable debt, and boy do I pity their lenders.

Weak

But the biggest threat to Cameron’s regime is not the West or the East, which are increasingly inward looking as they wrestle with their own economic woes. No, the real threat comes at home.

The great Alex Salmon wants to break away from the decrepit union, wisely — he doesn’t want his Scotland to be plundered or saddled with unpayable debt by Cameron’s cronies any more.

Of course, the British regime won’t die tomorrow. Zombified, ill-educated British people who believe official propaganda, who have never experienced a democratic system of government are not yet ready to strike out at their Downing Street and Westminster tormentors and oppressors.

But in the longer term, Mr Cameron has lost. He can even turn out to be Britain’s last prime minister. He has become a figure of fun among the oppressed classes in Britain’s industrial heartland — what’s left of it.

The internet is buzzing with wickedly funny parodies of his mannerisms and the grotesque excesses of official propaganda. They habitually refer to David Cameron as a “cunt”, they depict Cameron as a bare-assed clown, a wanker and bird-faced imbecile, like a farting plonker, a bloated struggling jogger, a balding freak, a wanna-be Tony Blair (the worst insult of them all).

For modern-minded Brits, although not that well-educated or well-traveled anymore, Cameron’s capitalist paranoia, incompetence and greed is an embarrassment.

They want Britain to downgrade its international expectations, to take its rightful place in world affairs as one of the least significant players of modern civilization, as a small island nation on the periphery of modern economic routes, to retire from the bright spotlight, which it can no longer afford to pay for, to join other rogue states.

Derision

They consider Downing Street’s support for the Nato inflicted bloodbath in Libya, for the ongoing murder and rape of Afghan civilians (dozens every day), and its pandering to the nuclear degenerates of the USA, to be a disgrace.

They deride Mr Cameron’s official speeches and policy announcements in thousands of blogs and posts.

To be fair, such derision does not yet spell defeat for Cameron, his phony crony capitalists, his corrupt banker friends or the increasingly corrupt regime in general. The mainly middle-class demonstrators who stayed in a tent camp in the City of London for three months number only a couple thousand. Demonstrations in other towns and cities were even smaller.

The opposition is still largely leaderless and compromised by British government agents. Opportunists and extremists abound. MI5 have their work cut out suiciding undesirables at the direction of Cameron’s cabinet.

But the bombast is hollow, just as Cameron’s continued existence at the top of British politics will be. The bleak truth is that the UK regime has run out of ideas. They may even decide to sacrifice Mr Cameron in a spectacular fashion by staging another terrorist attack on British high value targets like they did on 7/7.

Cameron’s outlandish and meaningless promises during the past year don’t offer a program for economic reform either.

Britain’s putrid economy is perilously dependent on quantitative easings, on gullible foreigners with lots of money (to steal from) and on mass self-hypnosis. Yet Cameron wants to cut social spending, decrease the arms budget and lower salaries, to take away jobs and benefits, he wants to put an end to free education (what little of it still remains) and health care. People are not going to take that lying down, that’s for sure.

That is a recipe for trouble, as even his own economically literate followers know all too well.

Increasingly, the Brits no longer believe in the future of Britain under Cameron. And neither should we.

How to Use People Power to Bring Down the Government

February 17, 2011

Let’s look at the lessons of Tunisia and Egypt’s recent people power uprisings.

Let’s analyze briefly the use  and the role of people power in bringing down the ruling regime on the example of, say, the United States and/or Britain.

Can it be done?

Yes, it can be done but it all depends on the number of protesters willing to get involved. As oppressive  and as long-entrenched as the regimes in Britain and America are, they don’t have the guts (if not the desire) to use full force to drown their own citizens in a blood bath, especially when (and if) the numbers are not on their side.

It’s all in the numbers really, and the arithmetic of these numbers is very simple — the more, the merrier.

Here’s an empirical hierarchy of protester numbers correlated to the likely effect of their protests.

Suppose, a “day of anger” to bring down the government is arranged to be held on a central square in Washington or London.

  • If fewer than 1,000 protesters come to take part in the protests — they will be ignored.
  • If anywhere from 1,000 to 10,000 come — they will likely be beaten up by the police and the regime’s security forces.
  • If over 50,000 come — they will beat up the police and security forces good, if nothing else.
  • And if over 500,000 come and sustain their presence — the regime will collapse within hours rather than days — even in America and/or in Britain, which however can be speeded up even more if the protesters start occupying certain strategic “regime” buildings and locations, such as the White House and the Capitol in Washington DC and Downing Street 10 and the Houses of Parliament in London. It’s a good idea to try to occupy peacefully but forcefully at this stage the buildings housing the military and the intelligence services too — like the Pentagon in Washington, and the MoD buildings and the Secret Services HQ in London.

See, it can be done. And without staging any violent uprising or a coup or anything. Just the awesome effect of people power.

The only requisite thing is that the required number of people must be willing and able to come (small matter that).

That’s the lesson of Tunisia & Egypt then, I think.

It can be done.

Is it time for regime change to come back home to roost?

Brutal British Realism

November 14, 2010

Millions must now say good-bye to their hopes of a better life and a secure future in Britain.

When Britain optimistically embarked on its Thatcherite reforms nearly 30 years ago, it had high hopes of becoming a successful developed economy but now that these hopes appear to have been shattered in the most brutal fashion imaginable — what does this mean for Britain’s sorry citizens?

More than half a century ago Winston Churchill famously declared that foreigners would never be able to understand how Britain worked, who ruled it and what kept it afloat.

It is an old cliche but not without truth. To this day, outsiders still find Britain messy and very confusing.

In the odd 30 years since the Thatcherite times, Britain has changed greatly.

British Leyland’s oil leaking wheeled contraptions had been replaced on the roads with automotive imports from all over the world, including places like China and India.

Huge advertising hoardings had shrouded the old grimy gray-stone buildings in the center of London.

The London hub  had sprouted enormous American-style shopping malls but also — stretching out into what passes for countryside in Britain — narrow strips of allotments, usually the size of a large handkerchief where British people try to grow some vegetables or fruit to augment their unhealthy diets and to get which they have to spend 15 years or more on the council waiting lists.

Yes, yes, Britain is still a baffling and forbidding place for a stranger.

The end of Thatcherite capitalism

Some in Britain even hoped for a British miracle then. They were promised the North Sea oil — just then discovered — would make them rich, that Britain would become another Saudi Arabia or even Qatar.

Then in the early 1990 — when the Thatcherites were at their strongest — Britain had its first ever American-style consumer boom which unleashed a wave of euphoria in the battered old country which looked positively invigorated, albeit for a very short time.

At that time British politicians proclaimed to the world that Britain had changed and later (not so long ago) even claimed that there would be “no more boom and bust”.

They promised it would embrace universal values and even join Europe, they claimed.

Well they were wrong.

None of it happened — instead Britain has remained sullen and hostile to the European Union, and re-embraced its old anti-European rhetoric but still has seen its economic hopes all but collapsed.

It is only now that people begin to understand that so many of their assumptions about their future in Britain are wrong.

The recent times of relative plenty (brought about on the back of centuries of Imperial looting and thievery) look soon to be succeeded by the times of absolute dire need for most British people, many of whom will undoubtedly be — and are in fact being — plunged into poverty, unemployment and misery, as unbridled capitalism finally found its match in the shape of the 2008 financial crisis which was unleashed on an unprepared populace.

The trauma of 2008 is still deeply felt.

Tragedy

With the British economy still uncertain of its survival, let alone future growth, many people have had a rude awakening.

People really have no hope — that’s why so many in Britain are turning to drugs. London has become the official cocaine capital of the world (disclaimer: other drugs are also used and abused there in record quantities).

In another reminder of how hard the times are about to get, many British people, young and old, are turning to prostitution as their main profession.

Young females and males sell their bodies to get themselves through university or just because there is no other work or even simply because they like it and find it pleasurable.

British women have always had a particular predisposition to prostitution. Even those who are quite well-off often do it and proudly write books about their exploits in the oldest British profession and publish their “prostitution diaries”, sometimes even under their own names, which quickly become the nation’s bestsellers and are duly screened, with Britain’s leading actresses vying to play the main parts, and are brought without delay to the tv and cinemas.

There are many things both wonderful and terrifying about Britain but one conclusion that begs to be made is that, for millions of British people, capitalism seems to have failed.

It looks like their future will be all about a hard and bitter struggle to survive in a progressively yobbish, lawless society, where few (one, two or three) will have a lot and where most will have very little, while Britain’s international standing (what little of it is still left) is by no means assured.

Given that, it is not surprising that some choose oblivion in the snort of British talcum — cocaine — or in the puff of a funny cigarette while others trade their beauty and youth (or indeed ugliness and old age) in for a couple of banknotes.

But what can they do? — It seems, the people of Britain will only have Thatcherite Capitalism’s corrupt legacy to live with for all of their future — whatever future they will be able to have.

British Mafia

October 24, 2010

British Mafia is a term designating a wide range of organized crime groups and groupings originating in Britain and the former Greater British Empire. In Britain itself the British mafia is almost always euphemistically referred to as “serious organized crime”.

Since the early 1980s, when the British mafia became especially active, these groups have amassed considerable worldwide power and influence and achieved a large scale penetration of the British government structures as well as local authorities and law enforcement agencies in Britain and elsewhere. They are active in virtually every part of British and Western European society.

British criminals are also internationally active in illegal oil trade, the trafficking of women and children for sex and hard labor, white and black slavery, grand larceny, the smuggling of weapons and narcotics, money laundering, protection racket, prostitution, fraud and contract killings. The British also control the global e-mail scam racket. One British mafia boss, Christy “Godfather” Kinahan, was recently arrested in Spain; it is believed that he became the boss of several British mafia syndicates and worked hard to promote unity among British organized crime groups.

With many British people leaving the country to live abroad in the late 20th and early 21th century, there is no doubt that there is not only crime involving British expats abroad but there is in fact an organized structure of criminal groups comprising British expats in foreign countries.

Long History of the British Mafia

The British mafia is much older than the often mentioned Italian “mafia”; in fact it is the world’s oldest organized crime phenomenon as organized crime has existed and has been endemic in Britain since the inception of the British State about eight hundred years ago and during the Imperial times and thereafter, especially in the form of banditry, piracy on the high seas, colonial looting, pornography, prostitution and thievery.

In the nineteenth century a class of professional thieves emerged in Britain. They had to abide by certain rules whilst in the prison system and out of it. However professional British criminals were always willing to make deals with the British authorities, and vice versa. During the many wars that Britain fought, many criminals made deals with the British government to join the armed forces, to serve as secret agents in return for the authorities turning a blind eye to their activities.

In the 16-18th centuries British criminals engaging in piracy on the high seas were often recognized by the British government and the ruling monarch and given license to kill, to loot and to plunder, to enslave free people in return for paying a percentage of their spoils to the British crown and for doing various commissions of the British state, like attacking shipping of the competing maritime powers and looking for territories to be invaded, grabbed by Britain and claimed as her “rightful” colonies.

During the post-WWII era when the British economy started on its protracted but still terminal decline, the British gangsters would often take control of the black market with the help of corrupt officials, supplying products such as food, tobacco, alcohol, condoms, pornographic images during the post WWII rationing era which were hard to get for the ordinary British citizen but much in demand.

Collapse of the Greater British Empire and the Decade of Greed (1980s)

Following the collapse of the British empire in the 1950-60s and especially during the erratic 1970s when the British State as such teetered on the brink of disintegration, the British secret services (MI5 & MI6) became involved with organized crime and the British mob became a long arm of the British government. MI5 & MI6 often recruited and trained criminals for use both outside the country and within. At the same time many “former” and active British agents joined international and domestic racketeering, drug-trafficking and prostitution-controlling gangs, sometimes leading them, a trend which is still continuing and even intensifying today.

The real breakthrough for British criminal organizations occurred however during the economic disaster and mass civil protests of the 1980s that followed Margaret Thatcher’s misguided economic “reforms”. Desperate for money, many former government workers, miners — whose jobs and livelihoods were taken away from them by the Thatcher “criminal group” with headquarters at Downing Street 10 — turned to crime, others joined the numerous former British citizens who moved overseas, and the present-day British Mafia became a natural extension of this trend also.

Later former MI5 and MI6 agents, professional athletes and veterans of the Falklands-, Gulf-, and North-of-Ireland wars, now finding themselves out-of-work but with experience in areas which could prove useful in crime, joined Britain’s organized criminal groups. Widespread corruption, rising poverty and distrust of the authorities only contributed to the rise of Britain’s organized crime — the situation which is likely to be repeated in the near future as a result of the policies of the current unelected ConDem government.

Contract killings, bombings and kidnappings are on the increase with more and more gangland murders taking place in Britain and elsewhere, a substantial number remaining unsolved. It is believed that almost all British banks are either owned by the mafia or have strong mafia connections and ties to the British underworld and international crime. It is not unheard of for British businesses to pay protection money, and this phenomenon is set to increase dramatically as the times of plenty are being supplanted by the times of need. At the same time, the new criminal class of Britain is trying to take a more businesslike approach to organized crime and is looking to merge with Britain’s political elites as the brutal British gangsters of yesteryear may be fading into extinction, although one cannot exclude the possibility of a reversal in this process.

Britain Now a Mafia State

At the present day, the mafia is so strong in Britain, has such a wide reach, has so successfully penetrated all government and civil society structures that there is really no other way to describe Britain but as a mafia state even more so than Spain — another mafia ridden Western European country.

Internationalization of British Mafia Operations

Britain’s opening up to the world and the internationalization of its economy starting in the late 1970s also gave the British mafia connections to other criminal organizations around the world such as the Chinese Triads, the United States’ many (more or less ethnically defined) mafias or the Sicilian Cosa Nostra.

Connections with Latin American drug cartels allow the British mafia to import cocaine into the country whilst heroin is imported into Britain straight from Afghanistan allegedly via British and American military bases.

However it’s with the Spanish mafias that the British mafia has the strongest links.

British organized crime has spread to many other countries as well including Pakistan, India, Poland, the Baltic States, Hungary, the United States, Ireland, Portugal, France, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Russia, Italy, Thailand and Spain which has become a virtual mafia state.

British Mafia-Affiliated Companies and Entities

  • BAE Systems is a major British “defense” company, dubbed the British merchants of death, which is especially adept at using corruption and links with organized crime to promote its business interests around the world.
  • Guardian Media Group is a British newspaper conglomerate. Whilst the Guardian likes to pose as Britain’s leading quality “independent” left-of-center paper, it too is nothing but a plaything of the British Secret Intelligence Services, both domestic and foreign (MI6 & MI5), and through them is inextricably linked to the British government and the British mafia (in rare aspects where the two do not overlap). According to some reports, the Guardian also uses a string of offshore companies in the Caymans and Luxembourg for tax evasion purposes.
  • HSBC Holdings P.L.C. is a British multinational banking and financial services organization headquartered in London, England, United Kingdom, and is Britain’s largest bank and one of the world’s largest banks. It is also reportedly affiliated with a number of British mafia families who apparently used it since inception in 1991 until very recently to launder proceeds of organized crime, especially, illicit drug trafficking and supply. In December 2012 it was even severely punished by the U.S. authorities (even though they themselves are mired in corruption and similar criminality) and made to pay a huge fine for facilitating vast money-laundering operations, including washing money from Mexican drug cartels, on behalf of British mafia families, such as the Adamses. The irony is that Lord Green, who was chief executive of HSBC during the years it was turning over hundreds of millions of pounds of mafia money, is a current trade minister and member of the Treasury team deciding how to reform Britain’s banks. But at least it illustrates to which extent the boundaries between mafia, government and banks are blurred and permeable in Britain.
  • Paradise Bet Ltd is a company based in the west London suburb of Hounslow that operates paradisebet.com. The company’s assets are owned by the criminal Parisi clan from the southern Puglia region of Italy, whose members are accused of contract killings, drug smuggling and money-laundering.
  • Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) is Britain’s answer to America’s FBI. It is an elite “crime fighting” unit set up by the British Government to fight major criminals. However it has failed to catch crime bosses and has been infiltrated by the underworld — by the British Mafia. Originally it recruited from the cream of the British police, immigration, customs and MI5 and had more than 4,000 staff in offices all over the world. But pretty soon it was mysteriously dropping investigations into crime bosses, links between SOCA senior officers and suspects were alleged and proven, allegations of serious sexual misconduct were covered up. In a well documented case it transpired that an investigation into a suspected Nottingham crime boss in 2007 was halted because the suspect had contacts inside SOCA. In an extraordinary turnaround, a major “crime fighting” unit has now become a tool in the hands of the invincible British mafia.

Individual British Mafia Gangs

  • Adams Family Firm, also known as A Team, is a powerful British mafia syndicate run by the vicious Adams brothers, Terry, Patsy and Tommy, originally based in North London but now operating throughout Western Europe and beyond. Its main activity is drugs trafficking and supplying drugs to European clubs and discos. The Firm can supply large quantities of drugs thanks to strong ties with Colombian cartels. It has also been involved in contract killings, protection racket and money laundering as well as prostitution and has successfully infiltrated law enforcement authorities in many countries.
  • Cheetham Hill Mob was an inner city gang in Manchester specializing mainly in the sale of illicit drugs. Its young leader Anthony “White Tony” Johnson was killed at age 22 allegedly by the rival Noonan brothers.
  • Clerkenwell Crime Syndicate is the other name by which the Adams criminal family enterprise is known (see “Adams Family Firm” above).
  • Deepdale Gang is a major drugs gang in Preston ran by two brothers — Hafiz and Salim Razaq. In addition to trafficking and distributing drugs, the Deepdale gang was also involved in kidnappings, torture and killings as it fought vicious turf wars with rival mobs. Hafiz Razaq was running street ops for the crime family while his brother Salim “Sal” Razaq was taking care of things on the police side — a police sergeant, he was effectively a “mob boss in a British police uniform” and a special asset to the gang members, providing them with access to the police national computer, among other things.
  • Kensal Green Boys (KGB) is a gang of mostly black juvenile boys in North-West London. The group engages mainly in turf warfare with members of rival gangs; they also serve as foot soldiers to drug dealers; members are often contracted to carry out jobs for more mature British criminals, including contract hits.
  • KGB is the acronym by which the Kensal Green Boys gang from North-West London is known.
  • Kinahan Network is a powerful British gang specializing in supplying drugs (mainly cocaine) to Britain as well as handguns to British inner city gangs. Headed by Christopher “Christy” Kinahan, the gang also offers “bespoke” money-laundering services to rival mafia figures throughout Western Europe and channels hundreds millions of British mafia money into building projects mostly in Spain, offshore accounts and companies. The Kinahan Network is one of Western Europe’s wealthiest criminal organizations involved in drugs, guns and savage beatings and has extensive links to the Spanish Mafia, the American organized crime, a major Israeli mob, Colombian cartels and other Western European crime entities.
  • Man dem crew is a North London drug dealing gang with links to Jamaican Yardie gangsters.
  • Nottingham Gunn Gang is believed to be one of Britain’s most feared and violent gangs operating in Nottingham but also has a presence in many other British cities. It was founded by Colin Gunn and was initially mainly involved in drugs trafficking and drug dealing but later expanded into murder-for-hire, extortion and infiltration of legitimate businesses. Its boss has been incarcerated since 2006 but continues to run his associates from prison, apparently in collusion with prison officers who are forbidden to address him other than as Mr Gunn.
  • Organized Crime (OC) gang is a gang made up of black boys based in Peckham, South London. The gang engages in turf warfare against rival South London gangs, deals in drugs, muggings and stages shoplifting raids, plans and executes robberies. Its bitter rivals are the Peckham Young Gungs, a rival South London gang, with which its members have been involved in a number of shoot-outs.
  • Pekham Young Guns is a black boys gang based in Peckham, South London. In addition to turf warfare, the gang is active in the drug distribution business, and engages in other usual London gang activities, such as muggings, intimidation, beatings, shoplifting, robberies, etc. Its rival is the Organized Crime (OC) gang also from Peckham, South London.
  • The Star Gang is a drug dealing gang based in Tottenham, North London, and trading in violence, intimidation and drugs. Mark Duggan was a senior member of the gang at the time of his death at the hands of the police, which event sparked major riots.
  • The Yardie drug gangs, aka the Yardies, are criminal Jamaican drug gangs in the United Kingdom, aka Britain, specializing in the importation, production and sales of illicit gangs, with a particular emphasis on crack cocaine. There are many Yardie gangs in Britain — more than in any other country in the world. In 2003 it was reported that Yardie gangs were present in 36 out of the 43 police force areas in England and Wales. The Yardies have produced some of the most well-known British crime figures, such as Derek “Yardie” McDufus.

Notable British Mafiosi

  • Terry Adams is the ruthless and undisputed king of the British mafia, from North London, who made his name by being personally involved in killings, drugs trafficking and savage beatings among other activities and who became obscenely rich by running his drug-dealing empire in Britain, a virtual state within a state.   A vicious British man (of Irish ancestry) who is now temporarily behind bars for money laundering was for many years the so-called “chief executive” of the Adams family firm, also known as the “A Team”, a vicious British mafia gang operating from North London.   Terry Adams is considered one of the most cunning and venomous mafiosi of modern times in Britain who left quite a trail of the broken bodies and slashed faces of his many victims and who at one time seriously considered buying the Tottenham Hotspur FC.   His family’s fortune is estimated to be at £100-200million.  He also had a (semi-) legitimate business career creating a string of money laundering companies, in which he himself held various positions, including “public relations adviser”, “jewelery designer” etc. However his main — criminal — career has spanned nearly three decades of drugs trafficking and extortion.    Adams and his violent brothers Patsy and Tommy generated such fear in the British underworld that they were able to start franchising out the “Adams” name and reputation.    Terry Adams was letting other criminals buy the right to say they were working with or on behalf of the Adamses.    In one instance a fee for loaning out the fearsome name was £250,000 (with payment within seven days).   They extended their reach well into the Crown Prosecution Service where they had a mole who gave them details of police informants’ names and other information.   It is estimated that at least 25 people have been killed, and dozens maimed, for crossing the family.   One of these was former British high jump champion Claude Moseley. He was stabbed through the back with a Samurai sword by Gilbert Wynter, one of the Adams enforcers.   Wynter was charged with murder but strolled out smiling from the Old Bailey when the charges were dropped because the prosecution’s chief witness was “too terrified” to give evidence.   Some time later Wynter himself disappeared.  It is believed that he was strangled and his remains can be found in the deep footings of the Millennium Dome.   With Terry Adams currently in prison doing seven years for money laundering (of all things) [Updated: he may have been released in June 2010], the family continues to be run by his brothers very much like “business as usual” — they have in place a huge network distributing drugs to clubs and discos throughout Europe, with strong links to Colombian cartels, and with HQ somewhere on the Spanish Costas.
  • Ashley Bucknor was a member of the Organised Crime (OC) gang based in Peckham, South London. In 2008 he took part in a shoot-out with members of the Peckham Young Guns, a rival South London gang, and fired a bullet that killed an innocent bystander. He did it just six months after being released early from a jail sentence for stabbing a 40-year-old man who tried to confront a group of young gang members.
  • Dave “Dodgy” Courtney, aka Dave Courtney OBE [= one big ego], is a British criminal and one of Britain’s best known living gangsters. He may have started his criminal career as some kind of junior associate of Reggie Kray, at least he claims so himself. Later he collected debts for his bosses and became famous for liberally applying his famed knuckle-duster in the process. He claims to have survived a huge number of fights, shootings and assassination attempts and himself caused grievous bodily harm, maimed and killed rival mafia figures. In recent times he however has become a public celebrity figure in Britain and almost a household name. He has starred in movies, television documentaries, recorded singles and written a succession of books.
  • Paul Cryne is a British free-lance contract killer based in Thailand who carried out hits for about a £30,000 fee. Cryne, 62, is also an accomplished British athlete and holds a Guinness underwater swimming title.
  • Mark “Starrish Mark” Duggan was a senior member of The Star Gang, a Tottenham drug-dealing gang. He was murdered in August 2011 in cold blood by police officers. His death initially sparked the 2011 London riots. He was also the nephew of the late Desmond “Dessie” Noonan, a major Manchester crime boss.
  • Mohammed Ali Ege is a British crime boss. Born in Dubai, Ege ran a drug distribution business in Britain and made various property deals. A deal went sour, and he ordered a hit on his former business partner and hired two heroin addicts. However the two persons involved missed the house of their intended target and killed a completely unrelated person.
  • Santre Sanchez Gayle is thought to be Britain’s youngest professional hitman who carried his first “hit” at age 15. Currently in prison, he charged 200 pounds per job.
  • Gary Griffiths is a one-time British police officer and a career criminal. A former Met Police officer, Gary Griffiths was a member of Darren Lloyd’s gang of robbers. The gang raided cash-in-transit deliveries in east London, using stolen cars and false number plates. Gary Griffiths would dress as a firefighter to gain access to shops and business premises. The gang planned and executed at least 12 separate raids which netted thousands of pounds. He was captured after his former colleague spotted his distinctive features on CCTV.
  • Colin Gunn is a notorious British mafia boss who ran a violent drug-dealing criminal empire in Nottingham and personally ordered hits on his enemies or members of their families and relatives. Behind bars since 2006, he remains — in collusion with prison officers — the leader of one of Britain’s most feared and violent gangs — the Nottingham Gunn gang.
  • Ben Hope is a British hitman and a heroin drug addict (now incarcerated) who was paid the equivalent of US$800 to kill a former business associate of one Mohammed Ali Ege, a Dubai-born British crime figure. Hope and his associate Jason Richards, a fellow heroin addict, displayed staggering incompetence when they missed the house of their intended target by a whole 100 yards and killed a completely unrelated person.
  • Anthony “White Tony” Johnson, was a British gangster and the young leader of the Cheetham Hill Mob. He was killed in 1991 at age 22. As he walked out of a pub, Johnson had a gun forced in his mouth which was then fired. Rival gangsters, the Noonans — Desmond, Derek and Damien — were implicated in his murder but were never convicted.
  • Christopher “Christy” Kinahan, aka Irish Godfather, is one of Britain’s leading gangsters who is said to have a personal fortune of more than 100 million British pounds.   Kinahan’s area of expertise is exporting cocaine and guns to Britain — his gang is suspected of exporting tens of millions of pounds of cocaine to the UK each year whilst also supplying guns to the many urban gangs there. Recently he expanded his operations and started offering rival crime figures a “bespoke” money-laundering service to channel hundreds millions of British mafia money into building projects mostly in Spain, offshore accounts and companies.   To the casual observer, he is said to look fit and handsome and much younger than his years but make no mistake about it — this is a man who allegedly controls one of Western Europe’s wealthiest criminal organizations involved in drugs, guns and savage beatings.   According to reports, his contacts and list of associates read like a who’s who of international organized crime and include links to the Spanish mafia, the US criminal syndicates and mafia families, a major Israeli mob and the Colombian cartels.    In the 1980s and 1990s he served a number of jail sentences in Ireland and Holland for trafficking heroin, Ecstasy and illegal firearms. Whilst behind bars he is said to have learned several languages and taken degrees in sociology and environmental science. According to one report, he turned down a chance to earn early release from prison in the late 1990s in order to finish his studies. 
  • Darren Lloyd is a British criminal and the mastermind behind a group of robbers, including a former Met Police officer, who were raiding cash-in-transit deliveries in east London, using stolen cars and false number plates. Members of the gang would often don firefighters uniforms to gain access to shops and business premises. Lloyd planned at least 12 separate raids which netted thousands of pounds.
  • Stephen Marshal is a British gangster who was a junior associate of the Adams mafia family. A professional bodybuilder and a former gym owner, he is believed to have dismembered, and disposed of, at least four bodies whilst working for the Adamses and has since committed other grave crimes.
  • Derek “Yardie Derek” McDufus is a Jamaican drug dealer and an enforcer for the Yardie drug gangs. In 2005 he killed Desmond “Dessie” Noonan, a Manchester underworld mafia boss.
  • Desmond “Dessie” Noonan was a notorious British mafia boss who once boasted “his gang had more guns than the police”. Born in Dublin, Ireland, he is said to have been responsible for at least 27 murders in and around Manchester. Noonan, a one-time nightclub bouncer, was one of 11 children and ran his family gang with three of his brothers. He was stabbed to death in 2005 aged 46 by a Jamaican enforcer working for the Yardie drug gangs. His feared family remain major players in Manchester’s underworld. Desmond Noonan was the uncle of Mark Duggan whose cold-blooded murder at the hands of the police led to the 2011 London riots.
  • Salim and Hafiz Razaq are two British mafiosi who are brothers from a ruthless British underworld crime family. They ran a major drug trafficking and distribution operation in Preston and were also involved in kidnappings, torture, murder as they tried to muscle out rival gangs.  Hafiz Razaq is known in the Preston underworld as ‘The Enforcer’, ‘Big Haf’ and ‘The Muscle’. He rose quickly through the criminal ranks of the Deepdale drugs gang and became its boss.   At the same time his brother Salim Razaq was taking care of things on the police side. A police sergeant, he led a secret double life as one of the two leaders of the ruthless British underworld crime family. Salim ‘Sal’ Razaq, 31, effectively became a ‘mob boss in police uniform’ after assuming control of a drug and dirty money racket when his brother went to jail over a vicious turf war. He turned his suburban home into a gangland HQ and used it to store automatic weapons with hundreds of live rounds of ammunition as well as major cash stashes. He was also using the police national computer to check on the movements of rival mobsters and offered to “take care of” a key witness in his brother’s case. Thus, Salim Razaq was effectively a criminal in a British police uniform.
  • Jason Richards is a British hitman and a heroin drug addict who was paid about the equivalent of US$800 to kill a former business associate of one Mohammed Ali Ege, a Dubai-born British crime figure. Richards and his associate Ben Hope, a fellow heroin addict, displayed staggering incompetence when they missed the house of their intended target by a whole 100 yards and killed a completely unrelated person.
  • Stephen Pitman is a notorious British drug dealer. One of Britain’s most wanted men, Pitman was recently arrested on Spain’s Costa del Sol.

Warren, the only drug dealer to feature on the Sunday Times Rich List, has an illegal empire estimated to be worth up to £300million. He is in Full Sutton prison near York. A former bouncer once described as the ‘most successful British criminal who has ever been caught’, Warren was first jailed in 1995 while living in the Netherlands after Dutch police found a haul of drugs and banknotes worth £125million. While in prison, he killed a convicted murderer, Cemal Guclu, during a fight. He will be released soon and is expected to go back to running his criminal empire.
  • The Witneys are a British criminal family clan. Once a hardworking family, the Whitneys embraced criminal lifestyle dealing drugs on the backstreets of Anfield, just a stone’s throw from Liverpool Football Club. Thirteen members of the Whitney drugs ring were arrested, tried and found guilty of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs.
  • Gilbert Wynter was a junior associate of the Adamses and a feared enforcer for the family. He is credited with killing the former British high-jump champion Claude Moseley whom he allegedly stabbed through the back with a samurai sword. Wynter was cleared of the killing however because the chief prosecution witness was too scared to give evidence. In March 1998 Wynter himself disappeared and underworld sources say he was killed after double-crossing the family. Gang lore says his body was buried in concrete and is propping up the Millennium Dome in London.
