Oh What A Tangled Web They've Woven, some are gone but not forgotten ..By Jim Thomas


In criminal law, a 'conspiracy' is an agreement between two or more persons to commit a crime at some time in the future. Criminal law in some countries or for some conspiracies may require that at least one over act must also have been undertaken in furtherance of that agreement, to constitute an offense. 

There is no limit on the number participating in the conspiracy and, in most countries, no requirement that any steps have been taken to put the plan into effect (compare attempts which require proximity to the full offence). 

For the purposes of concurrence, the actus reus is a continuing one and parties may join the plot later and incur joint liability and conspiracy can be charged where the co-conspirators have been acquitted or cannot be traced

Rules have been bent, relaxed and changed by our licensing authority, to smooth the way for Uber to be licensed. 
Lies were told by TfL directors, at transport committee investigations conducted by members of the Greater London Authority.
• Yes they have a landline for bookings (lie).
• On off insurance (lie).
• It's a meter, it's not a's definitely a meter.

Uber were allowed to operate without a licence variation from premises in N1 with the full knowledge of TfL compliance. Instead of revoking their licence for operating from unlicensed premises -as per manual- Uber were given 6 weeks grace by compliance to "sort the matter out" and get a licensed.

We've recently been informed by a nation newspaper that certain government members including a former Prime Minister and Chancellor leaned on former Mayor Boris Johnson, to "go easy on Uber".

We are now informed by the GBM on Twitter that in June 2015, Transport for London move their £3.8bn pension fund in to the hands of Uber's biggest investor. 
Conflict of interests? 

Below is an article posted on Black Rocks website

Transport for London ("TfL") Pension Fund selects BlackRock for £3.8bn investment mandate

London – June 11, 2015 – TfL Pension Fund ('The Fund') has appointed BlackRock to manage liability-driven investing (LDI) and passive equity portfolios totaling £3.8bn assets.

The £1.6bn LDI mandate will include measures to protect the Fund from market uncertainties, including inflation as well as interest rate and equity volatility, whist having measured exposure to risk to achieve excess positive returns. The Fund's £2.2bn passive equity exposure will include investments across a range of index funds. The primary objective is for the Fund to hold sufficient assets to meet its member liabilities.

This new mandate follows an initial £100m commitment made by the Fund into the BlackRock Renewable Income in March 2014 - a UK-focused fund that invests in onshore wind, offshore wind and solar projects - which is part of a strategy to introduce new asset classes into the Fund's alternatives portfolio.

The Fund has over 82,000 members with assets of £7.3bn as at March 31 2014, across multi-asset index strategies, enhanced index funds, bonds, global equities and alternatives.

Editorial Extra: 
With all this evidence on the table, our trade should be on the cusp of a major victory, and yet forces are at work to deflect efforts away from total victory, simply because of egos and ulterior agendas.

Instead of every org and union, fully uniting as a force complete, against the very people who would seek our destruction...yet again, we see exclusions and secret deals with the chosen ones around the folding table. 

Instead of drawing a line and leaving past histories behind, certain people have had a line drawn around them, akin to a forcefield and are being targeted in revenge for scores that have been festering over many years.

Fake Twitter and FaceBook accounts abound, commissioned to spread malicious gossip on social media, in attempts to blacken names and reputations of targeted trade figures. 

The reasoning behind the fake rumours and PR spin is simply greed, the massaging of egos and the pursuit of glory.
