First hour: news review: with Conservative councillor Chris Windows
Second hour: Investigative reports: from Arnhem, Holland, with interrogator of crooked Dutch politicians Marco Verhej from We Are Change Rotterdam. Tony Gosling reports with Marco on the 74th anniversary of the battle of Arnhem where he’s doing a seminar ‘The Traitors of Arnhem?’ on Saturday about the deals being done between the Allies and the Nazis, sabotage of the battle, the trail of the Nazi loot at the end of the war, origins of the Bilderberg conferences ten years later, the creation of the E.U and Euro currency and funding of international organised crime today. Testimony 101st Airborne officer and sniper, Brian Christopher Boyenger, was in charge of Latvian and Georgian sniper squads inside Hotel Ukraine who killed nearly fifty Berkut police and civilians at Maidan protests on 20th February 2014. Documentary with English subtitles The Hidden Truth About Ukraine – Part 1; The Hidden Truth About Ukraine – Part 2 – Most historians talk about the battle as an ‘epic failure’, celebrating the courage of the paratroopers ‘against all odds’. But what few mention was that those odds were loaded less by the Nazis, than by elements within the Allied High command. The question is, why? A mystery which is one of the reasons thousands come to commemorate events year after year. Operation Market Garden took place shortly after the notorious ‘Red House Meeting, in Strasbourg’ where Nazi industrialists finalised deals they were cutting with the Allied establishment for them and their industries to survive and benefit once war was over. The Battles of Arnhem and Nijmegen are an historian’s ‘goldmine’ because, even 74 years after the battle, evidence is still emerging about what went wrong and right back in September 1944. Tony will present some of the latest evidence of the foreknowledge German Field Marshal Model had of the drops, which enabled him to place ‘reserve’ SS battle groups near Arnhem well beforehand. He will look at the link between the battle and Prince Bernhard’s historic ‘Bilderberg meetings’ which began ten years after the end of the war in Oosterbeek, the same pocket where the British paratroopers were isolated. Also evidence which emerged last year of Nazi nuclear tests which prove Germans had enriched uranium, an important bargaining chip as the war drew to a close. Some in the Allied high command were clearly paying more attention to feathering their own nests after the war than any kind of ‘race to Berlin’. Tony will look at evidence of ‘secret deals’ between Hitler’s treasurer Martin Bormann, who some say died outside the Führerbunker at the end of the war, and Churchill’s private secretary and ‘man of mystery’ Major Desmond Morton, for around a billion dollars of Nazi loot. Tony will also air recordings of exclusive interviews with some of the soldiers who were in Nijmegen and Arnhem, which point not to flaws in Montgomery’s plan, but incompetence at the top of the British Army verging on treachery. The result has been a modern world where the far right is again on the rise in Europe, in Ukraine too, where Cold War hatred of Moscow is being rekindled, and where Hitler’s Swiss banking financiers are again working against the interests of ordinary Europeans.
