(“The innocent are being punished while the guilty continue to lead affluent lives.” …. sound familiar? What we are seeing is the exact same criminal behavior on the part of international bankers that we see here in the U.S., taking place all across the globe. They are purposefully and deliberately undermining the economic system, world-wide, so that it can be replaced by something else after they have been handed 100s of billions (if not trillions collectively) in world-wide national treasury for their efforts. The fact is, they are counting on us not knowing enough about how the system works to know what they are doing, and they are counting on the collective silence of the complicit politicians and media moguls at the same time.)

Today one of Britain’s most senior police officers with responsibility for public order raises the spectre of a ‘summer of rage’, with victims of the increasingly bitter recession taking to the streets in possibly violent protest.
Superintendent David Hartshorn, who heads the Metropolitan police’s public order branch, warned that law-abiding middle-class individuals who would never have considered joining demonstrations may now seek to vent their anger through protests this year.
Many will consider such a scenario unlikely, or point out this has not been the ‘British way’ over the past two decades.
Violent protests take place in Europe – in recent weeks Greek farmers have blocked roads over falling agricultural prices, a million workers in France took to the streets to demand greater protection for their jobs and wages and Icelandic demonstrators have clashed with police in Reykjavik – but not here.
But can we really be so sure? The public’s rage with the banks and the Government is growing by the day.
Thousands are losing their jobs through no fault of their own because bankers who made millions during the good times are calling in the loans which their employers need to stay afloat.
Homes are being repossessed across the country, but not the penthouse flats and country piles of bank bosses who thought nothing of taking home vast seven-figure bonuses, and consider £1 million a year a modest income.
The innocent are being punished while the guilty continue to lead affluent lives.
