I sent an email to the David Arnold of the Kings Fund :
I request from you a full and detailed account of how your team are explaining to the taxpayer why we should handover all NHS buildings and equipment to the private sector as the privatisation of our NHS rolls on unheeded. Correct me if I am wrong sir, but once the handover is complete, is it not the case that we the taxpayer will still be liable for the debt incurred to build the new NHS buildings, without any monies going back into our economy.

Roger Graef – MST Board Member
Writer, broadcaster, filmmaker, Films of Record
Roger Graef is a writer, filmmaker, broadcaster and criminologist. Born in
He developed the ‘fly on the wall’ technique in Britain that gained him the first access to film in normally closed situations from ministries and boardrooms to police, prisons, probation and social work. His influential films include Thames Valley Police, which helped change the way the police deal with rape victims. In Search of Law and Order took a unique look at some groundbreaking ways of changing juvenile rehabilitation. And The Secret Policeman's Ball helped make Miramax and Harvey Weinstein household names, and influenced a generation of comedians and musicians to try and change the World.
Roger was a founding director of Channel 4, a board director of London Transport and co-designer of the
As an author, he has written Talking Blues: the police in their own words, Living Dangerously: young offenders in their own words, and Why Restorative Justice? He lectures, writes and broadcasts frequently on crime justice and other social issues.
I would suggest old Roger is helping the criminals to best present their propaganda, by preventing anything that resembles the truth from hitting the ears and eyes of the populace.

This lady is involved in far too many Crown invested issues, which shines through in the above CV, but most telling is her involvement in the current terrorist cases which are in most cases, a total fabrication by MI5 and MI6. I wonder why she has never demanded an investigation into the exercises carried out during the 77 bombings in

As the BBC business editor he must be very connected to Common Purpose also. We know there are over a thousand CP employees in the BBC, paid for by ‘we the people’, of course sitting on the Media Standards Trust with two very prominent CP subversives, he is obviously operating for the same CP agenda as it moves from the Royal Institute of International Affairs through CP into our system. This is not good at all.

He is married to Rosslie, who is National Moderator for the children’s literacy scheme, Catch Up, and a Diocesan Schools Visitor. They have sons. His recreations include walking, music, literature and Northumberland. He is also the author and editor of a number of books.
The interesting thing here is that as a Christian, he should be appalled at the deception going on in the media by withholding real truthful news. I of course from my experience with the Blackburn Diocese, know full well how the Church of England’s Bishops operate, I exposed the Bishop of Blackburn some years ago, how the Bishop lied and deceived the congregation of a Church called St Johns in Accrington. He and the Vicar set about creating the idea that the Church building was in such a bad state, it would require masses of monies to keep it open. As a builder I was asked into the Church to survey it. What I found was premeditated damage to gutters, and slates removed to give the look of major problems, there was no dry or wet rot and the spire was in pristine condition. The bishop of course had claimed the spire required stainless steel internally to stop it from falling. Absolute bollocks and I exposed it as just that. The church was and is a very important chapel because it houses the chapel for the Accrington pals regiments who set off from the church to be paraded round the
