Beginning his working life in the aviation industry and trained by the BBC, Tony Gosling is a British land rights activist, historian & investigative radio journalist. Over the last 20 years he has been exposing the secret power of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) and élite Bilderberg Conferences where the dark forces of corporations, media, banks and royalty conspire to accumulate wealth and power through extortion and war. Tony has spent much of his life too advocating solutions which heal the wealth divide, such as free housing for all and a press which reflects the concerns of ordinary people rather than attempting to lead opinion, sensationalise or dumb-down.

      Well said Chris. I hope you make more comments in future and others do too. I feel a little lonely and hogging up the comments section. Im a 20th century guy, and know little about how to make shows like this get much more exposure. I hope persons like you can use your social media and internet knowledge to promote this great program to a much wider audience, and worldwide if that isn’t to much to ask. cheers fellow Politics show enthusiast Chris Jones 🙂

    It is always refreshing to listen to intelligent, hard working labour, Eastville Councillor Mhairi Threlfall. And at the risk at being “politically incorrect” she is a pretty woman with a lovely voice.

    I was remiss or didn’t know that Eastville Councillor Mhairi Threlfall was going to be the guest on the Politics Show this friday. She may or may not have been interested in this article. If memory serves, she was a guest several years ago and was working to get prostitutes help and away from the, putting it litely, demeaning profession of prostitution.

    The first time I heard about “land grabbing” was 8 years ago. It was about speculators, the imf, the wealthy making deals with men in power to take land away from self sufficient African farmers. I wonder how many of them make up what percentage of Africans drowning in flimsy boats in the Mediterranean and the Atlantic ocean off the coast of West Africa to make it to europe ?

  6. dahszil says:

    by the way, about 10 minutes, 25 seconds into the video is the introduction of “the city” in London in video about “THE MEN WHO CRASHED THE WORLD”. it starts with a guy who is selling trinkets in India, as a self confessed hippie. His brother entices him to work in the financial district of London

    • dahszil says:

      also starting about 11:50 is Gordon Brown’s, while exchequer, “light touch” easing financial regulation which contributed to the financial meltdown. have just watched the first 15 minutes of the video so there may be more about Great Britian’s role in the crisis in the video after 15 minutes.
