Your friendly neighbourhood arms dealers

How’s this for a profession?

Published in a Sunday magazine by the Sunday Mail newspaper.


Your friendly neighbourhood arms dealers: The father-and-son team - who’ve made a fortune trading historic weapons

By Craig Mclean

Christian and Alex Cranmer, father-and-son antique weapons dealers, are shooting off their mouths.

At each other. As usual.

‘Dad wanted to buy a pair of $300,000 English pistols,’ Alex is saying with a disbelieving look.

‘Which is just completely insane, even though he thought they were a good deal. But I successfully persuaded him otherwise.’

‘Actually,’ says Surrey-born Christian to his American son, ‘you threatened to quit.’

‘But then again,’ Alex says, ‘I wanted to buy a quarter-of-a-million-dollar Sherman tank. Which everybody said I should have bought.’

Christian shrugs. ‘As my father said to me: Never buy anything you can’t pick up with one hand.

‘That’s always been my policy,’ the elder Cranmer states, conveniently forgetting the machine-gun-mounted command car he bought from the producers of Raiders Of The Last Ark.

And his failed attempt to purchase a Mercedes-Benz that once belonged to Adolf Hitler.

That said, a little amnesia is perhaps understandable.

After all, Christian and Alex Cranmer own £25 million-worth of military memorabilia.

And, as British viewers will see from this week, that weaponry also makes for a lot of entertaining TV. Especially if you throw in a side-order of familial warfare.

In a dark and dusty, oil-reeking storage facility in rural Pennsylvania, Christian and Alex are guiding me through the weapons-grade stock that has made them a fortune.

In crate after crate, in row upon row, the booty is piled high.

The 30,000 World War II-era German rifles, bought as a job lot from Portugal for £6,000, now sell at a brisk pace for £30 each.

The eight, wagon-wheeled Bira guns, an improved version of the Gatling, made in Nepal in 1885 and restored to their late-19th century glory, go for £17,000 a pop (or, in the case of this hand-cranked machine-gun, a rat-tat-tat).

The boxes of 1914 Russian trenching spades, dug out of long-forgotten Iron Curtain-era warehouses, snapped up for £4.50 per item, cleaned up and sell on for £80.

The Cranmers’ company, International Military Antiques, is shovelling in the money.

Weapons, webbing, ammunition, kit, tools, memorabilia, seemingly random jumbles of metal (they’re usually parts from disassembled historic machine-guns, made safe to comply with federal law) – it’s all here, heaps of the stuff, salvaged by Christian on innumerable international bargain-hunting expeditions over the last four decades.

IMA’s stock spans every major conflict and era backwards from World War II to the American War of Independence and British imperial adventures all over the globe.

And they’ve supplied authentic weapons to the producers of Band Of Brothers, Saving Private Ryan and The Pacific.

It’s ALIVE

Cable, ISP, telephone all up and running at the new place. Great.

Too bad the wires aren’t in places where we want them, so it’s going to be a bit of ceiling work for me, running wires in the walls to where I need them.

so hitler was actually following the word of god and so, could not be guilty of anything

Well, now I can really say I have heard it all.  Tell you what’s scary. He really does believe it and he teaches that line to others who in turn will accept the argument.  Really can not ignore this even if there isn’t anything to be done.

Be hard to top this one and I don’t think I’d care to find something that does.

This is very short, there isn’t anything except the brief video and the translation.

I’m actually trying to find things to say about this, hit a wall. 

Found this at, MEMRI/TV Go there and find out what they’re all about.  It was an education for me. Hadn’t known all these videos and all this kind of thing was being archived this way.  If you visit the site there are links at the top of their page that you can access, which will tell you all about them. And tons of video clips with English translations.

Time To Pull The Plug

My last post from this address. I have to have the PC, a working telephone, an analog TV, and the HDTV with it’s HDMI cable up at the new place in the morning for the cable guy to come and turn on our Triple Play package.

Just in time for the monster hurricane to hit, which could knock out power for a couple weeks. Just like the big unexpected storm about this time last year did. Oy vey. This, I don’t need right now.

So in case my PC doesn’t survive the trip ...

how does one communicate with something like this? and why do they all have to have beards?

Paid one of my visits to Jihad Watch. There’s usually something there of interest. And this sure is.

This guy really does take himself seriously.  You should too because he says it does not matter what you want or don’t want, Christians had better be prepared.
“Whether Christians like it or not, they will learn the meaning of islam.” That’s the translation on the video clip.

What a horrible sounding language btw. No wonder they’re nuts. Listening to that everyday would have that effect.

And folks in the west, many folks but not all except the appeasers, think we can actually sit down and talk to these ppl.

And he ridicules Christianity. If he were a Christian cleric similarly ridiculing Islam, there would be an international uproar, calls for his murder, and discussion at high levels of restrictions on the freedom of speech. “Egyptian Cleric ‘Alaa Said Ridicules Christianity and Vows to Instate Islamic Law in Egypt,” from MEMRI

Egyptian Muslim cleric: “Islam will be instated, the Shari’a will be implemented, whether you or whoever is behind you likes it or not”

H/T JIHAD WATCH

politics usa ….

This is just a small portion of an article I found at The Wall St. Journal.

I used to read the hard copy version some time ago.  Don’t know what brought me to them tonight, but I stumbled on more than looked for this subject. Started reading and found it hard to stop, and so I thought some of you may find it of interest as well.

Personally, even without the author of this piece (Michael J. Totten) pointing this out to me, I got the feeling that both Romney and Obama were being, well, can I say delusional?
Romney thinks we would ever be in any position to do what he suggests?  Oh come on.  Does he drink or smoke things he shouldn’t?  No?  Then he should know better.

As for Obama, well I think everything that could be said has been said already but I’ll add this. He is not just delusional if he really believes what he is quoted as here.  He has slanted things and twisted them out of all truthful shape.  Even when I got no further than his line about attitudes about Americans changing, I knew at that point the man is full of beans.  Unless perhaps and it is always possible, that ONE person changed his mind about America and so Obama took that as meaning all of them did.  Stupid.  He says we “stood with them” but in fact I took all that guff he was spouting at the time as, sucking up to islamists.

So enough of what I think.  I posted this for the readership, here’s a part and catch the link for all of it.

WSJ for more

Mr. Romney said it first, early in the debate: “We’re going to have to put in place a very comprehensive and robust strategy to help the world of Islam . . . reject this violent extremism.” Later Mr. Obama spoke as though this objective is already on its way to being accomplished: “When Tunisians began to protest,” he said, “this nation, me, my administration, stood with them earlier than just about any other country. In Egypt, we stood on the side of democracy. In Libya, we stood on the side of the people. And as a consequence, there is no doubt that attitudes about Americans have changed.”

The Middle East desperately needs economic development, better education, the rule of law and gender equality, as Mr. Romney says. And Mr. Obama was right to take the side of citizens against dictators—especially in Libya, where Moammar Gadhafi ran one of the most thoroughly repressive police states in the world, and in Syria, where Bashar Assad has turned the country he inherited into a prison spattered with blood. But both presidential candidates are kidding themselves if they think anti-Americanism and the appeal of radical Islam will vanish any time soon.

First, it’s simply not true that attitudes toward Americans have changed in the region. I’ve spent a lot of time in Tunisia and Egypt, both before and after the revolutions, and have yet to meet or interview a single person whose opinion of Americans has changed an iota.

Second, pace Mr. Romney, promoting better education, the rule of law and gender equality won’t reduce the appeal of radical Islam. Egyptians voted for Islamist parties by a two-to-one margin. Two-thirds of those votes went to the Muslim Brotherhood, and the other third went to the totalitarian Salafists, the ideological brethren of Osama bin Laden. These people are not even remotely interested in the rule of law, better education or gender equality. They want Islamic law, Islamic education and gender apartheid. They will resist Mr. Romney’s pressure for a more liberal alternative and denounce him as a meddling imperialist just for bringing it up.

Anti-Americanism has been a default political position in the Arab world for decades. Radical Islam is the principal vehicle through which it’s expressed at the moment, but anti-Americanism specifically, and anti-Western “imperialism” generally, likewise lie at the molten core of secular Arab nationalism of every variety. The Islamists hate the U.S. because it’s liberal and decadent. (The riots in September over a ludicrous Internet video ought to make that abundantly clear.) And both Islamists and secularists hate the U.S. because it’s a superpower.

stupid just got got a lot more so and public is less safe so things are normal here

I suppose it doesn’t get too much crazier than this.
Another one of those things I couldn’t make up.

He is serving a life sentence for assaulting and robbing a 90-year-old woman and has been linked to sex offences.

Here’s the headline.


‘Lock your doors:’ Police warning after ‘dangerous and predatory’ sex offender goes on the run

· He is suspected to have committed a serious sex offence while on the run
· There are reports that two schoolgirls were approached for sex by a man who matched his description
· Cyrus remains at large despite a police hunt and several reported sightings
· Police warned the public to lock their doors and not to approach him

By Alex Ward
Daily Mail

Detective Chief Inspector Ian Dawson, of Preston Police, said: ‘Leach is an extremely dangerous and predatory individual who poses a serious threat to members of the public.

‘He has previous convictions for burglary, sex offenses against a young girl, assault and robberies in which he has targeted elderly people in their own homes.
‘We believe he could be sleeping rough and traveling extensively throughout the country. He has a number of links to Preston and prior to his sentence lived and offended in the Preston area.
‘We are liaising with a number of other forces in a bid to track him down and apprehend him but we need the public’s help.’

So then bmews readers, just what do you do with an animal like this?  Guy is violent, sex predator, deemed as violent and a threat to the public.  Hmm. Lets see.
What would you do?
OH!  I have it. I’m so darn brilliant I could kiss myself except I don’t kiss guys and another guy’s wives.
What to do?  Easy.  Why don’t we allow him day release?

Lee Cyrus has been a fugitive since October 9 when he failed to return from day release.

WHAT???  But he promised he’d return. He gave his word.  Damn it. Ya just can’t trust anyone anymore these days.

Oh btw.  It’s reported he has attacked a girl while on the run.

Is the system fucked up er what? 
Guy with that kind of background and they give him day release.
It just gets dumber and dumber and dumber. AND, there is no end in sight.

update, ways to kill a thousand say terror suspects

This is how very deadly serious these vermin are.  How serious as in ‘deadly’ serious is the west in fighting back in kind?  Not very. No. We have to make things tidy and legal and avoid race like words that may offend the very ppl trying to kill us all if they can’t convert us.  Even when all the evidence is right there in front of us for all to see and to hear, the system still has to hold a trial.  To prove what? We already know.

These guys were caught in time. How many are there left out there we know nothing about?  If as the left says we on the right are suffering from Islamophobia, then I’d say we have every damn good reason to fear the ROP.

This is an update on the group of muslim slime I reported on earlier in the week, you will possibly recall the photos posted here but I think it’s worth posting their hideous bearded sub human faces again.  And if it seems to you that I may be a bid more paranoid than you are, hey just remember. 
I’m here and feel closer to this crap.  That might seem unreasonable to some but that’s how it is.  And worse yet, as well as off topic, I have more of a concern with the crime rate unrelated to this kind of thing, being a reasonable distance outside London.  For now.

Wasn’t always so my friends. Wasn’t always so.

Terror gang discussed killing 1,000 people with poisoned hand cream


A British terror gang discussed killing 1,000 people by lacing hand cream with poison and smearing it on the door handles of cars and homes.

By Tom Whitehead, Security Editor

Irfan Naseer, the alleged ringleader, said people would start dying within five minutes of coming in to contact with it when they went to work in the morning.
The Muslim group also talked about getting guns from the “black geezers” and storming in to a synagogue and other places, Woolwich Crown Court heard.

The al-Qaeda inspired gang, from Birmingham, is accused of plotting to use eight suicide bombers to detonate rucksacks packed with explosives in crowded places to cause “mass death” and carnage on the streets of Britain.

Naseer, 31, Irfan Khalid, 27, and Ashik Ali, 27, all unemployed from Birmingham, are the alleged “senior members” and were among 12 people arrested and charged last year.

They die man, all of them start dying and that, kill about 1,000 people.

The trio deny between them a total of 12 terror charges including planning a bombing campaign, recruiting others for terrorism and terrorism fund-raising.
Conversations between them and others were secretly recorded by the police.

In one Naseer, who is known as Chubbs, talks about other methods of killing people he was taught about while allegedly undergoing terror training in Pakistan.
He said: “Make it and put it inside like, you know like Vaseline or cream like that, like Nivea cream and put it on people’s cars.

“You know like the door handles on a whole, imagine putting it on whole like area innit overnight and when they come in the morning to work they start touching the, they open the door and then five minutes they die man, all of them start dying and that, kill about 1,000 people.”

He added: “Even if we can’t make a bomb, get guns yeah from the black geezers, Africans and charge in some like synagogue or charge in different places.”
Earlier, the jury heard how Naseer justified attacking non-believers because they have “sex like donkeys”, orgies and took drugs.

He said: “They wanna you know have sex like donkeys on the street, they wanna club, act like animals and why shouldn’t we terrorise them, tell me that?”

Brian Altman QC, prosecuting, told the jury: “He is disdainful of Western values so why should he not terrorise them.”

Naseer also explained how just a one kilo bomb could kill 25 people and injure up to 60 people if it was packed with nails and steel nuts.

He said that al-Qaeda wanted jihadists to “do Europe” and raised the prospect of a second string of suicide bombers after his group’s attack.

an al capone strategy for pirates. Shoot them? sadly no.  jail them says USA. i say shoot them

I don’t want them captured. I want them dead. All of them.  But hey, we beggars can not be choosers. Right?

Caught my eye last night after the other pirate story. How many years has this been going on? And only lately seem to be doing something. Not a hell of a lot. But they are doing something.

Drew and one or two of you had it right. Wipe out their nests with nukes. Boom. Problem gone in a flash. Be cheaper as well.

I really liked this headline and especially as Mr. Capone was one of my first boyhood idols and heroes.  This was before I discovered Jazz mind you, and musicians like Bix and Miller and Goodman and Shaw and a list that runs on for pages. Can’t leave out Wilson and Krupa and Hampton either. Idols! Even now.
Still though, I always admired Capone, that’s Mister Capone, sorry. And Ben Siegel as well. Or Segal. Take your pick.
While their lifestyles and habits may not have been the best or even moral, their solutions to a problem always made perfect sense to me. If talking gotcha nowhere, well .......  I just hate long drawn out solutions to problems that can be solved quickly with reason and logic and a bit of civilized conversation.
Now if that can not work for some reason, well .........


‘Al Capone’ strategy to defeat piracy

The US has proposed an ‘Al Capone’ strategy of targeting 12 ‘kingpins’ who control Somalian piracy, in an ambitious new drive to crush the threat within two years, a senior official has said.

By Damien McElroy, Foreign Affairs Correspondent

Thomas Kelly, the US State Department official in charge of counter-piracy policy, told The Daily Telegraph a small group of very wealthy men were instrumental in the growth and spread of Somalian piracy.

Mr Kelly’s campaign to prosecute the men under corruption and money laundering laws could be the coup de grace against pirates that at one point represented the gravest threat to world trade in decades.

“That’s how we got Al Capone, he went to jail because of tax fraud. One of the main areas of multilateral work and in places like Interpol is to try to focus on the kingpins,” he said. “Just incarcerating young Somali men who are the foot soldiers isn’t going to eradicate the problem by itself.”

With global backing, all of the men could be facing the courts with the next “couple of years”, he added.

“You have to go after the people who are buying the boats, buying the weapons and then laundering the money in Africa and other places. Money laundering is a global business they’re not keeping it in one place you need to have law enforcement in many different places talking to each other.”

Taking into account higher insurance premiums and other costs to shipping firms, the overall economic cost to the world economy inflicting by Somalia piracy was estimated as $12 billion (£7.5 billion) in 2010 alone.

Figures released by the International Maritime Organisation show a dramatic drop in piracy this year. It catalogued just 70 incidents in the first nine months, a 75 per cent fall off from the same period in 2011 and a three year low.

Mr Kelly said that the combination of increased patrolling by navies from the US, Europe and Asia as well as the employment of armed guards on ships was a turning point in the battle against piracy.

“There was a lot of reticence in a lot of places about using these crews but people learned through experience that this was a critically important factor in reducing the number of instances,” Mr Kelly said. “Its hard enough to climb up the side of a ship with a Kalashnikov on your back but it’s harder when you have some someone shooting down at you.”

Four fifths of container ships and tankers now carry armed guards, leaving pirates with fewer targets to go after.

“Pirates break off attack and look for softer targets,” he said. “We estimate 80 per cent of ships are using private security. We’d like it to be 100 per cent.”

I don’t know as this is exactly the way Drew and I would handle things. I think we’d consult with Vilmar and then bomb the hell out of the bastards.
But okay if this works they have our grudging permission.  Not that anyone asked. But they should have.
Now this is the part I really don’t like or approve. But again, I wasn’t consulted and near as I figure Drew has been too busy so they prolly couldn’t get in touch with him.

America is also mounting a diplomatic campaign to share the burden of imprisoned pirates with countries that dominate the registry of shipping. Countries such as Panama and the Bahamas are being asked to prosecute and imprison pirates caught on their vessels.

About 1,000 pirates have been imprisoned in 20 nations as a result of the crackdown on the trade. An international conference on Somalia in London in January backed a British-financed initiative to stage trials of pirates in the Seychelles. Kenyan courts have also sentenced hundreds of pirates to prison.

Yeah and how much does that cost?  Don’t much care for that.
I say simply shoot the lice in human form and be done with them.  They won’t be missed and lice are bad things to have around.

one dead oh happy day, and one pirate boat scatched fun stuff.

Nice to see this for a change but.  They only killed how many?  And saved 25?

See?  That’s what I mean when I harp on the west being too damn soft.  The way they treat these pirate scum, one would be mistaken in thinking they were actually humans.  Oh well, take what we can get I suppose.


Dramatic moment NATO warship takes out suspected pirate boat off Somali coast in fierce gun battle

Pirates opened fire with AK-47s as the HNLMS Rotterdam was carrying out routine surveillance off Somali coast
One person on pirate sailboat killed and 25 others rescued after jumping into water as dhow went up in flames
NATO commander: ‘It is obvious the scourge of piracy has not gone away and we need to maintain vigilance’

NATO warship returned fire on a group of pirates in one of the world’s most dangerous shipping lanes.

The HNLMS Rotterdam, NATO’s flagship counter-piracy boat, was carrying out routine surveillance off the Somali coast when they spotted the suspicious dhow, a type of small boat often used by pirates.

As it approached the boat, the pirates pulled out their AK-47s and opened fire, sparking a fierce gun battle.

During the exchange, the dhow caught fire, forcing the crew members to leap into the sea.

One person on the dhow was killed and 25 people were subsequently rescued from the water by Rotterdam, which has a 350-strong crew.

Incredibly, while trying to rescue the crew from the stricken dhow, Rotterdam came under sustained fire from the shore with one of its inflatable boats suffering damage.

Commodore Ben Bekkering, the commander of the NATO Task Force, said: ‘We know that pirates are increasingly using larger dhows as mother ships. Therefore we routinely inspect them.

‘In this instance, the pirates openly chose confrontation. This does not happen often and it indicates that we are indeed impeding their operations and in doing so, pushing them to take more extreme options.’

up is down and down is up

It must be my age.  I am a dinosaur.  I am have no fear of people who happen to be what I think queer.  As in, odd behavior. But wait. It isn’t odd anymore.
Actually, yes it still is.  What isn’t odd is being so open about it.  As if it’s nature’s way. It’s the opposite of nature’s way. And even then, I haven’t any problem as long as we can please call a spade a spade.  Not long ago I watched an episode of Downton Abbey and suddenly there was a scene where two guys were damn near swallowing each other in a kiss.  I felt like upchucking. Gross in the extreme. Sick making. Yuk and gak. That isn’t normal or natural and especially if the actors were straight.  How can straight actors agree to do that?  It just isn’t natural. But it’s accepted these days as a couple in love. Or lust. Whatever.
How in the world a minority who have even managed to steal the language, the word gay comes immediately to mind, can overcome all obstacles and dictate how the rest of the world must accept as natural this sort of thing, along with their endless parades, is mind boggling. The answer must be, has to be,

It’s the rest of us that are actually the minority. How else to explain why I dare not use the perfectly once nice word, ‘gay’ except to describe them. 

OK so.  I do not hate them. I would not harm any in any way cos their personal life is their business.
BUT ... when the media fall into line like so many lemmings I have to conclude in spite of other evidence, that the media is not just queer friendly but in fact the decision makers must be too.  The people who shape public opinion and alter an entire culture have won the day.

Want proof?  You and I won’t accept this but ....

image

That little kid will grow up rich but confused. Or maybe not. He’ll grow up believing because he’ll be conditioned, to seeing two men like this as the most natural thing in the world.  And by the time he’s an adult, it might be.  Because the opinion shapers will have it so. 

Crivens!

HAVING A BALL IN PRISON, WISH YOU WERE HERE

Ppl in the press and average Brit complaining for long time about what seems to be a very soft criminal system. Anyone listening?  If they are they aren’t doing anything about it.  Case in point? This article.  It doesn’t give folks much in the way of confidence in their system. And it surely doesn’t help the victims of crime or the families of victims seeing this.

Liberals shout loud saying prisons should not be about revenge. Oh yeah?  Why not?
But if not that, certainly it should not be this either.

Welcome to Costa del Jail! Facebook boasts of thugs and burglars serving time

· Seven prisoners at HMP Haverigg, in Cumbria, used Facebook in the prison
· Flouting of rules banning use of mobile phones is ‘endemic’
By Jaya Narain

Stripped to the waist and grinning from ear to ear, they look like a group of young friends posing for a holiday snap.
Actually these eight men are prison inmates parading for the camera – and they flouted a ban on mobile phones to upload the results to Facebook.

As well as dressing in their shorts, they poured scorn on the justice system by likening their prison sentences to a holiday in Spain.
The group – some of whom look sunburnt – were jailed for a variety of crimes ranging from drug dealing and theft to burglary and assault. They were pictured at Haverigg prison in Cumbria.

One posted: ‘Waken up in the Costa del Haverigg 2 me halfa english brecky ha!’ while a friend remarked: ‘Defoo Looks Like Use r Havin a Ball in Ibizaa hahaa.’
They are the latest inmates serving sentences for serious offences openly to flout the ban on having mobiles in prisons.

Justice campaigners say the smuggling of phones into jails is ‘endemic’ and warned that strong action needs to be taken to stamp it out.
In the last two years almost 350 prisoners have been found posting on Facebook and the Government has vowed to get tough on those who break the ban.

A spokesman for Families Against Crime said: ‘These criminals clearly haven’t learnt their lesson and ought to be given lengthier sentences. Prison sentences are meant to deprive offenders of their liberty but Facebook and other social media websites allow them to flout this.

Three years ago it emerged that one of Britain’s most dangerous gangsters, Colin Gunn, then 44, was using Facebook to threaten his enemies from his cell.
Contraband phones are used as a currency within prisons with inmates exchanging them for favours, drugs and other items. A Ministry of Justice spokesman said three of the prisoners identified in the photos at Haverigg had since been released.

A Prison Service spokesman said: ‘Prisoners have no access to the internet and are barred from updating Facebook while serving their sentence, or asking others to do so from outside prison. If they do, their accounts will be terminated.
‘Anyone caught with a mobile will be disciplined and faces being moved to a higher security prison.’

something rotten at the core?

Not much for me to write about. It’s been said at least, ???? lost track of the number of times.

The Brits have a problem okay and much is of their own doing.  Not people like Chris Edwards or LyndonB. Not the average Brit who struggles to make ends meet.
But there is surely something very rotten at the core when year after year, almost month after month, similar stories surface.  Not all the cheats and thieves are foreigners of course.  But this country, meaning Uganda and Nigeria as well, seem to produce some outstanding (and they do stand out) con artists.
Sort of like Romania and gypsys.  Thing about some of the more outrageous con jobs is, they go through so much planning and trouble and artful dodging, wouldn’t you think that they might make even more if they turned all that brain power into something legal?

I guess not.

A family of African fraudsters stole at least £4million from taxpayers in a 20-year scam.

By Christian Gysin

One created fake identities for up to 100 children to milk the benefit system.

She also claimed to suffer from HIV and require costly drugs – but in reality sent them back to Uganda to be sold for huge profits.

A court heard that supplying the drugs for so many years cost the taxpayer more than £2million.

A further £154,000 went on education for the ‘family’, with £37,500 for a single higher education course.

Fraud relating to accommodation costs and sub-letting of flats cost £650,000, and the family’s myriad benefits totalled £900,000.

During their six-week trial, a jury heard how the group ‘conspired together to create, use and exploit’ false identities in order to carry out the staggering fraud.

An investigator told the Daily Mail: ‘The trouble is, they had so many identities that it may never be known exactly how much they took out of the benefits system and this country over such a long period of time.’

Prosecutor Paul Raudnitz said: ‘The tentacles of this fraud went far and wide for many, many years. Each defendant at different times joined the conspiracy.’

He said ‘key player’ Ruth Nabuguzi, 49, ‘employed multiple identities ... so many that the true number of identities may never ever be known’.

Nabuguzi, originally from Uganda, made claims for HIV/AIDS drugs costing £2,280,000. She also received £500,000 in housing benefit from Newham Council in east London, Croydon Crown Court heard.

CRIVENS!  Take a look at these names. Can anyone pronounce any of them?
FIRST thing should be done is to force name changes on foreigners who intend to live among the native population, so that English speakers don’t have to learn 100 different languages to communicate. Don’t care for that? Fine. Then go elsewhere and live and take your jumble of impossible letters with you.

Nabuguzi came to the UK in 1991 and claimed asylum for herself and four children she had left behind in Uganda.

Three years later, she used the name Jane Namusisi to apply for asylum again – along with two more children. In 1999 – using the name Pauline Zalwango – she applied once more, this time with three children.

Dennis Kyeyune, 29, is thought to be Nabuguzi’s son or nephew. Police found a black holdall at his east London home hidden on a shed roof with a vast array of fake documents, described as a ‘kitbag for the commission of identity fraud’.

Other members of the gang include Jordan Sebutemba, 26, thought to be Nabuguzi’s daughter or niece;

Albert Kaidi, a former partner of Sebutemba who is believed to be from Rwanda; and Lamulah Sekiziyuvu, 36, a former partner of both Keyuyne and Kaidi.

Kyeyune, Sebutemba, Kaidi and Sekiziyuvu were found guilty of various fraud offences yesterday.

They will be sentenced along with Nabuguzi and Betty Tibakawa, 21, Lina Katongola, 29, Mathy Matumba, 50, and Eddie Carlos Semcenda, 30, next week.

‘There must also now be questions about their immigration status and right to be in the country.’

Mark Simpson, an investigator for the Department for Work and Pensions, said: ‘This case shows how criminals determined to cheat the benefits system have nowhere to hide when the different branches of the Government come together.

‘We can pool our expertise to target and stop this fraud.’

Hockey pucks. You wanna stop this kind of thing then you use the DP.  You have to make the penalty if caught, not worth the risk of the activity. That’s what works.
Oh yeah.  And “Kill the lawyers.”

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
