For all the shows back to Easter 2009 visit the Friday Drivetime archive page.
First hour: Lane clearance in St. George was not included in the May Gurney waste, cleaning and maintenance contract. Marvyn Rees to be Bristol’s Labour mayoral candidate. Prime Minister David Cameron’s father Ian pioneered the abuse of Tax Havens and the Cameron family fortune was accumulated in Panama, Geneva and Jersey. Germans forced to allow printing of money in the Eurozone. Mexico G20 conference largely a waste of time, casino banking is gambling with peoples’ lives. So-called technical hitches at RBS, NatWest and Ulster Bank with customers unable to withdraw their own money. Banking should be there to serve governments, the people, business. There must be no gambling with money we need access to. One third of the Troika, the European Financial Security Facility (EFSF), is based in a tax haven and impossible for MEPs to scrutinise. Boss of G4S predicts mass privatisation of British police, Ten more UK police forces are looking to outsource policing to private companies. All sounds a bit ‘Robocop’ and extremely dangerous. Private prisons also open to fascist abuse but being encouraged by Justice Secretary Ken Clarke. Labour leader Ed Miliband apologises for Labour allowing unlimited EU immigration, but these are empty words, he’s shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted. Average wage has been brought right down so benefits seem more generous. Comparing Jimmy Carr with David Cameron’s father Ian, who was a pioneer of tax havens in Panama and Switzerland, as soon as Margaret Thatcher lifted currency controls. Changes proposed to the examination system. Congratulations and unequivocal support for campaign to reopen Whiteladies Picture House. What is the future for radical internet publishing and will Julian Assange have to live permanently in the Ecuadorian Embassy? Is Assange’s treatment the beginning of real totalitarianism? News review with St. George East Labour Councillor Fabian Breckles.
Second hour: The 2012 London olympics start in 4 weeks time. Exclusive interview with investigative journalist Lee Hazledean who is training undercover as a security guard for the London olympics with private security firm G4S. Lee is a filmmaker and investigative TV journalist. He has also been involved in major stories on the IRA and how British Army infiltrated the organisation and carried out false flag operations. He has managed to get undercover as part of the security team at the 2012 Olympics with G4S. He has found there is a media black out on all major news outlets to do with the Olympics unless the story is broken in a news paper or foreign news agency it’s unlikely to see the light of day. Security training and officers are so appaling that the safety and security of the London 2012 Olympics are in jeopardy. A few example’s: The security training is woefully inadequate run by a training company called Contemporary International. Lee has been assigned to work in a PSA (Pedestrian Screening Area) the main security for the stadiums. During an exercise he was asked to pose as a would-be terrorist and managed to get knives, guns and IED’s through security screening on every occasion and every exercise. The X-Ray operators have only two days of training, they aren’t trained properly and miss the most obvious prohibited items gun’s, knives, IED’s, ammunition etc. Bag and physical searchers again are missing dangerous weapons, trainees can’t use vital security equipment like the HHMD (Hand Held Metal detectors) they can’t even communicate properly with the public on a basic level. Worryingly the ‘Rapiscan’ walk through metal detectors don’t work properly and aren’t sensitive enough to pick up large knives, ammunition and other metallic threats. He was told that they would be set to go off only after 50 people have walked through to limit queuing time and to get spectators into the venue. So a Terrorist if they basically queued up would probably get through wearing a suicide vest. G4S are dragging the job centres to recruit the long term unemployed for security officers regardless of how suitable they are for the role. In classes there are drug deals going down, people can’t speak any English whatsoever and others who find people with disabilities offensive and are constantly making disabled jokes. People with no security experience are being rushed through training for their SIA licenses. People who haven’t even completed their SIA licenses yet are being picked to be Team Leaders over highly trained security officers, ex soldiers and ex police. Being a team leader is an important role as the first and last line of defence. Lee is concerned that weapons or worse will be getting into the games. However, what’s more disturbing is that uniforms are already going missing or being stolen from the uniform distribution centre/training facility. The training facility is an accurate mock-up of the actual security measures at the Olympic venues. Lee has witnessed several people taking photos on their mobile phones in the training facility and whilst they have been a few people caught by trainers most aren’t noticed. Even when they are caught they are just told to delete the photos and they continue on the training. We know that terrorists take surveillance photos to gain intelligence. Contemporary International claim that they have mobile phone ‘jammers’ in the facility, however trainers admitted to Lee that there were no ‘jammers’ at all, it was a verbal deterrent. The training facility is a non sporting Olympic venue and a terrorist target. Therefore G4S can’t even secure a school let alone the Olympic Venues.
Also there are plans for the evacuation of London, G4S are going to be at the forefront, as well as 100,000 troops coming in via Woolwich barracks made up of regular British Forces, American regular army and European troops. Lee was not told why there would be any need for an evacuation of the whole of London, they just said it was to be a “defining moment in the history of London”. This could just be a precaution but the public should be made aware of the foreign invasion which is taking place right now. The troops are being held across London in various barracks once they’ve been through Woolwich. Lee also had this information confirmed by an army doctor who was shocked at all the foreign troops coming into London. There is also a shipment of what are being described as casket linings, each casket can hold four or five people and 200,000 casket linings have been delivered we believe from America. This could all be precautionary in the event of a major terrorist attack. Also we were shown videos of drones attacking targets in Afghanistan and were told that drones will be patrolling the sky’s over London during the Olympics carrying out surveillance and search and destroy missions if necessary. Lee believes there is something fundamentally wrong with how the security for the Olympics is being implemented by G4S. With exactly 4 weeks to go until the games Lee feels he needs to expose the inadequate security in place in the hope that it can be improved so that the London 2012 Olympics can be a safe environment for spectators and Athletes alike, and not a cause for national and international embarrassment for Great Britain.
Privatisation of Olympics’ security discussed in the context of private companies such as ICTS and Verint Systems allegedly facilitating or carrying out false flag terrorism themselves for private profit. Released documents reveal that Neo-Nazis helped carry out the 1972 Munich Olympics attack. In 2012 the Israeli Secret Service Mossad is active in Iraq under Jordanian cover so may be responsible for some of the recent atrocities.
The year is 1963 and the Israeli state does a deal with Nazi war criminals thereby ‘losing its soul’. We go back to the 1970s to pick up an incredible story of former Nazis living happily in South America and even putting out disinformation through the world press to cover their crimes: Why was Mossad chief Isser Harel forced to resign while hunting for South American Nazi SS war criminals in 1963? Adolf Eichmann had been kidnapped, put on trial in Jerusalem and executed but other Nazi war criminals Martin Bormann, Klaus Barbie and Josef Mengele were then allowed to comfortably live out the rest of their lives in Paraguay, Chile, Argentina and Brazil. 1978 World In Action documentary ‘The Hunt for Doctor Mengele’ which is available on a Network DVD World In Action II archive.
