New petition on the block: Public Inquiry into wrongdoing and ethics of bankers

Addressed at HM Treasury, this petition says:

We the undersigned call for an independent, judicial public enquiry into fraud, wrongdoing and ethics of British banks, their management and their staff, and the role of the British Bankers Association. The terms of reference of this inquiry should also include the manipulation of interest rates on about £225 trillion of assets. The inquiry must have full powers to compel witnesses to appear on oath, and to obtain all forms of evidence.

If  it gets 100,000 signatures, it will lead to a debate in Parliament. It was initiated by Ann Pettifor who is very well versed in the subject.

    As the political elite leadership of all three major UK political parties all belong to the Bilderberg Group ( a world finaciers club) that embraces corporate banking, don’t hold your breath.
    Ask instead why the Bank of England never publishes it accounts?

    Why its shareholders remain anonymous and are protected by The Official Secrets Act?

    Why a private registered company has been given the power to devalue our currency (quantative easing?)

    Why the Government borrows from another private bank, the IMF with interest, when Britain owns 29% of it?

    Why is every EU nation who borrows from the IMF ordered to privatise its most valuable assets, public utility services, which people have no option but to use?

    Why, does Britain fail to print our own currency from which government and business can borrow interest free?

    Could it be that all EU nations Governments and political parties now belong to the banks?

    Which thief, privatised all our, local councils, county councils, courts, community centres, swimming baths,, schools town halls and public services, all are registered as private companies in, Dun & Bradstreet, We pay the wages and the running costs of these private companies, but who takes the profit and where are the trading accounts?

  2. TONY BUTLER,I do not think that I could put it better .God Bless You ,JIM.

    What is the point of a ” judge” led parliamentary enquiry ? It is
    the “Legal Mafia” led parliament covering-up serious criminal offences

    AKA. Dunblane inquiry ! Dr.Kelly inquiry !. Harold Shipman inquiry.

    It will be ” jobs for the legal boys ” on £500 an hour, it just might cost
    more than 400 million “Bloody Sunday” inquiry.

    Definite squeky bum time for Cameron & co. if the FBI carry on they will
    extradite the High Court Conspirators and bankrupt the UK.

    Do I understand this petition right?

    We are calling for an “independant judicial enquiry”!

    If it involves the judiciary, is there, – can there be, – such a thing?

    Surely what we are doing is asking what so many of us have found to be, without doubt, a bunch of crooks, to investigate what we believe to be yet another bunch of crooks!

    Would it not be preferable for a without fear or favour investigation to be conducted by a truly independant body?

    I wonder if Transparency International could be persuaded to take it on board, or, better still, investigate the honesty and integrity of the bankers AND the judiciary, based on information which so many of us could lay before them.

    Robert the Doormat should remember the Enron scam and the three
    Nat.West bankers shipped back to Texas for their offences !.

    The USA is driving the Conspiracy Mr.Doormat and just like the UK
    criminals use Federal US Govnt. Agencies. FBI. CIA. IRS. in fact the
    UK criminals were taught how to corrupt a country by the US.

    Poor old Garry will get his “ass burnt” for hacking into uncle sams
    computor, You just watch the extradition, or is it rendition ? kidnap?

    No doubt these kidnappers, renditioners, are your colleagues Doormat

    • Robert Dooran says:

      I thought you were ignoring me ‘timber’ Oakes. You just can’t help yourself, can you?

      What made you think that throwing gravy at the US embassy was an appropriate form of protest?

      If you do not like the American justice system I suggest you desist from committing crimes in the US.
