Whistleblower To Bring Down Brown!

#1
It appears that the HBOS whistleblower who forced the resignation of one of Brown's key financial advisors has got more, and it could bring Brown down (oh please, please, please, please, please).

Independent Article

Still, he wants to be careful doing the following:

Paul Moore will go to Mass today, eat Sunday roast with his family, maybe argue a bit with his teenage children, then take his dog for a walk in the fields around his Yorkshire home
We all remember what happened to the last man who revealed some nasty truths about this regime when he 'went for a walk in the fields'. We don't want him accidentally , brutally slashing his wrists with a gardening trowel and then hanging himself from a tree...

Hmmm....this could be good (but will likely amount to nothing). Everyone knows that Broon is a dodgy b@stard anyway.

I, REgards, hereby volunteer to sell popcorn at the public lynching in return for a front row seat :D

Just mentioned this to me dad - first thing he said was "This guy is going to get killed".

Funny that it's also the thought on here too.

Just watched Lord Turner the Chmn of the FSA twisting in the wind. A truly sickening sight, using 'the benefit of hindsight' as the ultimate get out clause. If you think Broon will act as the fall guy for this mess, you are deluded. Heads will roll, but I'll wager not his.

No, not deluded - of course he will lie and spin and deny and avoid and blame-spread, but if this proves to be one more nail in his coffin then it is all to the good.

This will have no effect on Gordon Mugabe whatsoever. It will sell a few newspapers and then the water will close over the top.

'the water will close over the top.'

* inserts lame gag about the Snotgobbler General swamping himself *

It is irrelevant, the handful of people who don't already realise that Brown in a traitor are too stupid to be swayed by mere facts.

Now I'm not one to rock the boat but look what was spotted in his village :wink:

I don't believe that Brown would be so stupid to make this guy another Dr David Kelly.

The media types at number 10 will be digging through this guy's life now in order to try and discredit him - my bet is it will all start tomorrow.The sooner Brown calls an election the better. The Country is on it's knees.

Serious question: Under what circumstances could the Queen force a General Election?

How about an armoured unit rolling into the centre of London and a few Para units taking control of the radio and tv stations. :lol:

If ONLY! As I understand it, Her Majesty has no powers to call for the disolving of this shower of sh1te, it is only protocols that the one who is going to be the new PM has to visit Her Majesty when setting up a new government anf then when calling a general election.

But for hundreds of years, since as I recall Charles 1st and Cromwell, the powers were take off the monarch and given to the government of the day.

SAD but TRUE . . . .

Happily, not true ;)

Only the Sovereign can summon Parliament, prorogue (i.e. discontinue without dissolving it) and dissolve it. When a prime minister wishes to dissolve Parliament and call a general election, he or she is obliged to seek the permission of the Sovereign to do so.

The Queen retains certain residual powers, notably to appoint a prime minister, and to decide whether or not to grant a dissolution of Parliament. The prime minister is normally the leader of the party which has a majority in Parliament, but there could still be exceptional circumstances when The Queen might need to exercise the discretion she still retains to ensure that her Government is carried on.

Quite right. If he bought a porn mag when he was 18 he'll be deemed a pervert, a sexual predator. If he smoked a spliff in Uni he'll be deemed a hippy crackhead. A glass of wine too many at a wedding he's an alcoholic. If he has been married before he'll be deemed an adulterer or wife beater. If he was ever overdrawn as a student he'll be deemed a blacklister. You know how it all goes.

Have I missed anything?

FSA already running for the hills:

"....in late 2002 which identified a need to strengthen the control infrastructure within the group; "

"....the FSA confirms that the allegations made by Mr Moore were taken seriously, and were properly and professionally investigated. It should also be noted that the FSA’s concerns about HBOS’ risk management framework considerably pre-dated the allegations by Mr Moore."

http://www.fsa.gov.uk/pages/Library/Communication/Statements/2009/letter_chancellor.shtml

Ahhh, so the FSA knew in 2002 things were rocky and instigated their ususal useless paper exercises which ended up with somes boxes being ticked to prove all was well after all.

Might, perhaps, maybe, possibly, would somebody very senior and then at the at the Treasury have been informed about these significant concerns in a major UK banking institution?? Or would the FSA just keep these concerns to themselves and not informed their lord and master???

I think we will be told.......

Interesting to note that he signed a gagging order and was paid £500K for doing so. They must have known his story was hugely damaging to hand such sums over. Now they will threaten to claim it back and apply as much pressure as possible and at least try to dis-credit him. Watch for desperate attempts to gag him tomorrow.
