    Brexit illegal campaign financing

    I´ve earlier posted on the fact that Brexit was orchestratedby the Queen Elizabeth controlled SCL Group to keep the UK the money launderingparadise of the world:

    If Southern Rock Insurance had gone bankrupt this could havemade Banks’ UK insurance broker Eldon collapse.
    Regulators made Southern Rock promise not to make any payments to Banks without their prior written consent. After in 2014 PwC concluded that Southern Rock wasn’t a healthy company, Banks had to resign as CEO, with his longstanding associate Alan Kentish (another Southern Rock director).
    Banks’ ties to Kentish and STM go back to at least 2004, when Kentish became a founding director of Southern Rock. Banks invested in STM andbecame its largest shareholder before selling his stake in early 2015. More recently, Kentish, Banks and another STM founder invested in Legal Protection Group, a broker of insurance for lawyers and doctors.

    ICS Risk Solutions, a holding company on the Isle of Man,pumped £77.7 million into Southern Rock to save it from collapse. Banks owned both ICS and Southern Rock; it is not clear where the money came from.

    In September 2018, the High Court ruled that Vote Leave had broken the law by overspending. It did this by illegally paying £625,000 to Darren Grimes for his BeLeave campaign, mostly through the Canada-based AggregateIQ, partner of the notorious SCL Group.
    In July 2018, the Electoral Commission had already ruled that Vote Leave broke electoral law by colluding with Grimes. It appears that the police investigation was stopped from some reason.

    In February 2019 the Leave.EU campaign, fronted by Nigel Farage and Eldon Insurance, and owned by Arron Banks, were fined £60,000 each for breaking direct marketing rules:

    For some reason the police investigation into multiple criminal offences by Arron Banks and the Leave.EU campaign was stopped.

    The Remain campaign was forced to stop its digital advertising on the last day of the June 2016 campaign because it had reached its spending limit but Vote Leave continued, breaking the law after reaching it spending limit 2 days before the vote.

    According to Professor Philip Howard:
    My professional opinion is that it is very likely that the excessive spending by Vote Leave altered the result of the referendum.

    A swing of just 634,751 people would have been enough to secure victory for Remain.

    Given the scale of the online advertising achieved with the excess spending, combined with conservative estimates on voter modelling, I estimate that Vote Leave converted the voting intentions of over 800,000 voters in the final days of the campaign as a result of the overspend.

    In the following video lawyer Jessica Simor explains that the Brexit referendum was unlawful because of the conclusion by the Electoral Commission on breaking the law by Vote Leave. The only reason that the referendum wasn´t declared invalid based on by the Electoral Commission findings of overspending is because it’s only “advisory”.
    The Court of Appeal denied permission to appeal against the Brexit referendum because this could only have been done within 3 months after the expenses had been lodged at the Electoral Commission in December 2016:

    Arron Banks funded Better for the Country with £6 million in donations funnelled through Leave.EU, and an additional £2 million in loans, of which £2.9 million was spent on funding the Brexit campaign of Leave.EU and other pro-Brexit groups.
    Only companies registered in the UK were allowed to make campaign donations. Because the money was channelled through an “impermissible” company called Rock Holdings Limited, which is registered in the Isle of Man tax haven it´s not clear where Arron Banks got the money:

    More recently, Yesterday, 11 justices of the UK's Supreme Court ruled that Queen Elzabeth’s suspension of Parliament on the “advice” of PM Boris Johnson is unlawful and therefore void so that Parliament had not been prorogued.
    Yesterday, several MPs already returned to Parliament:

    Al-Yamamah oil for arms

    The biggest export deal in British history, the multi-billion pound al-Yamamah deal, involved enormous bribes and kickback of up to 30% from the main seller British Aerospace (now BAE System, which made 43 billion pound in this arms sale).

    Middlemen that were paid included Wafic Said, a business partner of the hon. Member for South Thanet, Jonathan Aitken.
    Wafic Said gave his friend, son of then-PM, Lady of the Garter Margaret Thatcher, Mark Thatcher, a house and other lavish presents which has made him “mysteriously” rich.

    Another part of the deal was concluded in 1988, when Saudi Arabia ordered minesweepers from Vosper Thorneycroft.
    Vosper used as its agent the Saudi Fahd al-Athel, who, like Jonathan Aitken, worked for Prince Mohammed (the current Saudi King?). Vosper made huge payments to al-Athel's company, which were laundered through a front company in Saudi Arabia and were divided: 40% to Prince Mohammed, 20% to al-Athel, and 40% to unnamed others.

    For the fourth part of the al-Yamamah deal, Jonathan Aitken was paid by British arms company Astra for an introduction to his business partner, Fahd al-Athel.

    Thorn EMI has admitted that it paid 26% bribes on the sale of smart fuses for the bombs carried by Saudi Tornados.
    Half of those bribes went to the Saudi princes and the other half went through a small arms dealer, Michael Gay, to offshore bank accounts in the Bank of NT Butterfield in Bermuda to dissapear without a trace.

    Douglas Leese was a major player in the biggest export deal in British history, the multi-billion pound al-Yamamah deal. Douglas Leese used his connections with the offshore NT Butterfield bank in Bermuda to funnel bribes to Saudi Arabia.:

    Steven Hoffenberg was one of the first major business partners of Jeffrey Epstein.
    Hoffenberg said about his connections to Trump “Donald’s crowd was my crowd”.

    In one of those strange coincidences, Hoffenberg said he was introduced to Epstein by Sir Douglas Leese (this confirms that Epstein got wealthy from arms sales):

    Since the 1980s, Wafic Said has been a confidant of Jeffrey Epstein’s and Ghislaine Maxwell’s friend, Peter Mandelson:

    Astra and Thorn EMI were also involved in arming Saddam Hussein’s Iraq:

    BAE ran a £60m "slush fund" for bribes to Saudi officials in return for lucrative contracts.
    The investigation into the al-Yamamah deal by the British Serious Fraud Office (SFO) was abruptly closed for reasons of “national security”. The House of Lords unanimously overrruled a high court decision that the SFO shouldn’t have stopped the inquiry.

    The 1986 Al-Yamamah agreement, was a unique document that wasn´t really a sales contract but a barter deal of Saudi oil for British warplanes.
    Al-Yamamah has been, “the smuggling proxy for Shell and BP tankers to loot millions of oil barrels from Ras Tanura to Rotterdam”.

    According to a BAE whistleblower, the laundered proceeds of oil sales under the Al-Yamamah agreement have been funneled by BAE, Royal Dutch Shell and BP into various international financial systems.
    Proceeds of oil sales were deposited in a secret bank account in London controlled by Prince Bandar and his father Crown Prince Sultan:

    The bribes were shared between the Defence Minister, Prince Sultan and his family, and the sons of King Fand (notably Prince Mohammed).

    How did Britain secure these major arm sales in the first place?
    In July of 1985, US congressional supporters of [S]Israel[/S] Britain blocked the sale of F-15s to Saudi Arabia. Then the Saudis had no other choice, with the permission of the US, to buy the British Panavia Tornado.

    Some academics estimated that the Saudi purchase of Tornados, rather than the F-15s they preferred, cost the American economy $12 to $20 billion.
    When Saudi Arabia bought Tornado aircrafts, they also gave the UK a contract for 2 air bases valued at $4 billion.

    In September 1985, the Saudis and Britain agreed on a major aircraft deal as the first part of the Al-Yamamah deal.
    In July 1988, the Saudis and Britain agreed on an additional deal, which included 48 Tornados, 50-60 HAWK trainers, 80 helicopters and 4 to 6 mine hunters. This deal was worth an estimated $30 to $34 billion:

    As a strange follow-up to Watergate, the Church Committee did a (what looks) "real" investigation into the crimes of American intelligence agencies in the 1960s, which led to (almost) uncovering the bribes and kickbacks from the giant American arms companies to government officials all over the world.

    In the 1970s, André Donner, led the commission of three that covered up the millions of kickbacks received by Prince Bernhard from several arms manufacturers, including Lockheed and Northrop, which was labelled the “Lockheed affair”.
    Bernhard´s friend Hans Teengs Gerritsen helped to funnel the millions. Teengs Gerritsen also regularly met supposed "pesona non grata" Willem Oltmans, who get 8 million euro in compensation for (not) being persecuted for decades by the Dutch state...

    See Bernhard with Lockheed executive Robert E. Gross, 1956.

    In 1997, then Queen Beatrix selected Piet Hein Donner (André Donner’s son) for the “Raad van State” for life (comparable to Elizabeth’s Privy Council). According to the Dutch constitution it’s prohibited for any member of the “Raad van State” to become minister, so in July 2002 Beatrix selected him as Minister of Justice.
    After serving as minister for several cabinets led by Beatrix, Piet Hein Donner even served as Vice-President of the “Raad van State” from 1 February 2012 to 1 November 2018.
