We have asked many times previously why is the National Crime Agency (Government run) not investigating the utter corruption that is rampant in Britain thanks to Theresa May's hubby and tory associates making a killing from government contracts issued to private contractors that he has a direct link to via his executive position on a global investment company Capital Group that has shares in the very companies those contracts are being issued to?
The latest debacle reported is how a massive Royal Air Force contract to train military pilots that was given to America's Military Industrial Complex Lockheed Martin has left thousands of pilots untrained and how a £1.1 billion UK government contract has left Theresa May's hubby laughing all the way to the bank as Lockheed Martin shares soar through killing contracts. Further contracts estimated at up to GBP £6 billion (about $11.7 billion) as part of a 25-year “Fixed Wing Aircraft Service Provider” deal.
"Hundreds of trainee military pilots are not flying because of long delays in the Ministry of Defence's privately contracted training programme. The backlog in the Military Flying Training System (MFTS) has doubled over the past year. Three hundred and fifty pilots, including helicopter and fast-jet pilots, are waiting to fly because of a shortage of planes and instructors. The multi-billion-pound training contract is run by Ascent, a partnership between Babcock International and Lockheed Martin."
"Back in October 2006, an $840 million contract for BAE’s Hawk LIFT trainers aimed to provide advanced jet training for both Royal Air Force and Royal Navy pilots, as part of the consolidated UK Military Flying Training System external link (UKMFTS). In November 2006, the Ascent team external link of VT Group plc and Lockheed Martin announced their status as Preferred Bidder to provide military flying training to the Royal Navy, Royal Air Force and Army Air Corps for the next 25 years.
In June 2008, they secured the contract. That began a combination of infrastructure build-out, aircraft modification, and managed competition, aimed at fulfilling a contract estimated at up to GBP £6 billion (about $11.7 billion)… when it was signed. It’s hard to evaluate that number until Britain finally buys its training aircraft and associated training service, and as of 2012, they haven’t even put out the RFP."
"The single largest contractor for the federal government in 2016 was Lockheed-Martin, which raked in more than $43 billion in contracts last year. That was far more than any other contractor received"
"The UK Military Flying Training System (UKMFTS) takes UK armed forces aircrew from initial training through, elementary, basic and advanced flying training phases preparing them for their arrival at their designated operational aircraft units.
It is operated by Ascent Flight Training, a consortium of Lockheed Martin and Babcock International under a 25-year Private Finance Initiative (PFI) contract for the UK’s Ministry of Defence (MoD)."
"Disgusting Conflict of Interest: Theresa May’s Husband’s Investment Firm Made a Financial Killing” from the Bombing of Syria. On the 14th April 2018, the Prime Minister Theresa May sanctioned British military action on Syria in response to an apparent chemical attack on the city of Douma – air strikes that saw the debut of a new type of Cruise Missile, the JASSM, produced exclusively by the Lockheed Martin Corporation.
Every single JASSM used in the recent bombing of Syria costs more than $1,000,000, and as a result of their widespread use during the recent bombing of Syria by Western forces, the share price of Lockheed Martin soared.
Consequently, with the air strikes on Syria having hugely boosted Lockheed Martin’s share price when markets reopened on Monday, Philip May’s firm subsequently made a fortune from their investment in the Defence giant."
"Philip May profiting from wife’s military policies. Capital Group proudly claim they are significant shareholders in weapons’ manufacturer, Lockheed Martin ($6.6bn), and are the largest shareholders in BAE Systems. Both companies are world leaders when it comes to profiting from death and destruction. Capital Group has been linked to the Paradise Papers scandal with Private Eye suggesting that the company uses the offshore law firm, Appleby, to arrange investments in tax havens."
"Theresa May's husband's company owns shares in firm that made the Yemen school-bus bomb. Capital Group, the company that employs Theresa May's husband, owns a large number of shares in the company that produced a bomb which killed 40 Yemeni children in a Saudi Arabian attack on a school bus.
A Saudi military jet fired a laser-guided missile at a stationary school bus on August 9. A total of 51 people were killed, including 40 children aged between six and 11. Some 79 others were injured, including 56 children."
"‘Greedy Bastards’ – Philip May When the ‘Paradise Papers’ hit the headlines, Capital Group was among the companies accused of arranging investments in tax havens (scores of the UK’s super-rich were exposed as investing their money abroad to avoid paying their tax bills). It might, and has, also been noted that Theresa May’s military policies have indirectly enriched her husband and herself. Capital Group is the second largest shareholder in Lockheed Martin – which, a reminder, is a US military arms firm that supplies weapons systems, aircraft and logistical support. Its shares ‘rocketed’ in the wake of the air strikes on Syria."
"The Independent reported that: “Theresa May’s husband is a senior executive at a $1.4tn investment fund that profits from tax avoiding companies.“ Is it possible that Philip May, a banker, who works as a senior executive in a company advising and managing some of the world’s most despised corporations is profiting from not just a close relationship with Britain’s Prime Minister – but also from insider knowledge. Tory party Chairman Sir Patrick McLoughlin describes Philip May as “one of the hidden powers of Theresa May’s political career” and so do others in the know."
"Investigation into whether Theresa May’s husband corruptly profited from Brexit.
“It seems the Cabinet Office Propriety and Ethics Team has launched an inquiry into whether the company which employs Theresa May’s husband, Philip, could have potentially made large sums of money from Brexit market movements caused by her decisions.” "
