Yes, it's connected to BC Rail ... and to Gordon Campbell
BC Mary comment: is it possible to read reports like this, without becoming a Conspiracy Theorist? Are we being robbed blind by those who claim they only wish to serve and protect us? Well, this report from London, England certainly sounds familiar ...
To us, it's an obscure shift of tax law. To the City of London, it's the heist of the century
In David Cameron [Britain has] a leader whose job is to quietly legitimise a semi-criminal, money-laundering economy

'I would love to see tax reductions," David Cameron told the Sunday Telegraph at the weekend, "but when you're borrowing 11% of your GDP, it's not possible to make significant net tax cuts. It just isn't." Oh no? Then how come he's planning the biggest and crudest corporate tax cut in living memory?
If you've heard nothing of it, you're in good company. The obscure adjustments the government is planning to the tax acts of 1988 and 2009 have been missed by almost everyone – and are, anyway, almost impossible to understand without expert help. But as soon as you grasp the implications, you realise that a kind of corporate coup d'etat is taking place.
Like the dismantling of the NHS [National Health Service] and the sale of public forests, no one voted for this measure, as it wasn't in the manifestos. While Prime Minister Cameron insists that he occupies the centre ground of British politics, that he shares our burdens and feels our pain, he has quietly been plotting with banks and businesses to engineer the greatest transfer of wealth from the poor and middle to the ultra-rich that this country has seen in a century.

Thanks for the 'heads up' about this article.
'Tis the time of shepards turning into ravenous land developers, the time of wolves becoming butchers. Now the overlords love it, as long they're kept aloft highest in aires. Yet a most perilous time to be a lamb alive and looking alot like mutton, if you will permit.
But, anyway, don't worry, and don't get all hopelessly resigned--there's still a little time before the great revealing gets into full-swing; because none will dare call it conspiracy, so we must keep fighting the good fight. I do believe we will win out in the end; and there's no better anti-septic in the world than rays of light from the Sun.
Oh, and while i'm thinking about it, please permit me to write a shout-out to our esteemed justice, Ms. Anne MacKenzie:
"Now, your honour, it's always best to remember, how some people don’t have the truth as their objective, or they wouldn’t be at such pains to alter the record of it."
Which is just my way of saying (how) we all hope you do the right thing this week, Annie.
