#2011: Marine Links Serco Red Switch to Starwood Hilton Dial-a-Yield Bombs, London Co Spot-Fixed Body Bags
Plum City – (AbelDanger.net). United States Marine Field McConnell has linked Serco’s operation of the Defense Red Switch Network to dial-a-yield bombing attacks by guests or staff of the Starwood and Hilton hotel chains and the spot-fixing of body bag counts at mass-casualty events allegedly staged by investees of the London Company of Virginia.
McConnell claims that London’s White’s Club gamblers, including David Cameron, Nicholas Soames and Tom “Tagger” Stacey, placed Chris Hyman as Serco CEO to develop Red Switch dial-a-yield bomb technology so that their bookmaker could offer fatality spread-bet numbers while London Company triage agents delivered spot-fixed numbers with randomly-filled body bags.

Corrections Corp of America – Felons plant or remove evidence, extort blue-team silence and hack the Defense Red Switch Network (DRSN) to override orders from legitimate commands;
Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. – Equips cat-bond contract killers with semi-automatic pistols;
Alliant Techsystems Inc, (ATK) – Vaporizes evidence of contract hits with rocket-fuel arson;
Service Corp International – Destroys evidence of cat-bond hits in crematoria body bags;
White Mountains Insurance Group – Buffett cat-bond triggers – Fireman’s Fund contract hits.
McConnell suggests that Serco users of the Defense Red Switch Network installed in private hotels be treated as members of a racketeering influenced and corrupt organization engaged in murder for hire and spread betting or spot-fixing frauds at orchestrated mass-casualty events.
He invites readers to study the M.O. in the “7/7 medics used M&S and hotel kits” article below and check out the stories of the Murrah Building, East Africa Embassy and WTC explosions for evidence of Serco’s apparent use of Red Switch dial-yield bombs and triage teams to deliver spot-fixed body bags.

“7/7 medics used M&S and hotel kits
Medics treating wounded 7/7 survivors ran out of supplies and had to use first-aid kits from a Marks & Spencer store and a hotel, the inquest has heard. Published: Thu, November 25, 2010
Paul Dadge, the former firefighter famously photographed hugging victim Davinia Turrell as she clutched a white burns mask to her face, said there was little doctors and nurses could do without the right equipment.
Mr Dadge was a passenger on the train behind the one blown up by suicide bomber Mohammed Sidique Khan at Edgware Road Tube station on July 7, 2005, killing six people.
He described coming across the shocked and injured survivors of the attack and setting up a casualty station in the Marks & Spencer near the station.
Mr Dadge was pictured helping Ms Turrell across the road to the Hilton Metropole Hotel after the store was evacuated because of a bomb scare sparked by an abandoned laptop bag.
He recalled that doctors and nurses were brought to the hotel from nearby hospitals but said shortages of supplies meant their efforts were limited to grading the severity of the victims’ injuries, known as “triaging”.
In a statement read to the inquest, he said: “The medical resources on the scene were limited to the two paramedics and the small number of staff from the London helicopter emergency medical service team. We had run out of oxygen and dressings and had become reliant on first-aid supplies from Marks & Spencer and the Hilton Metropole Hotel.
“Plus, it had become apparent that the police had become aware of the lack of medical resources on the scene and had begun to blue-light medical staff from St Mary’s Hospital and other hospitals within the area to the scene.
“Nurses, consultants and even a National Health Service priest arrived at the hotel, although I think it is worth mentioning at this point that it was great, but without the medical supplies there was not much they could do other than retriage the people who had initially been assessed by myself and others.”
He added there was a “noticeable” delay in ambulances arriving, meaning a large number of the walking wounded had to be taken to hospital in police riot vans [phony triage to deliver spot-fixed body bag count, allegedly coordinated over Serco/Hotels’ Red Switch Network].”
“Hilton confirms approaches for Ladbrokes

Hilton Group has received approaches for its Ladbrokes betting shops arm which are understood to be from three private equity firms.
The UK company is currently in talks to sell its hotels to America’s Hilton Hotels Corporation (HHC). The business split in two in 1964 with the US company running hotels in America and the UK company running the brand elsewhere.
Hilton Group said that while it had received expressions of interest in Ladbrokes, it remained focused on concluding talks with HHC “for the benefit of shareholders.”
It added: “The board has great confidence in the future of Ladbrokes.”
A spokesman for the company said: “We are not going to engage in discussions right at the moment, our priority is the hotels deal.”

He said he was “confident of a positive outcome” to the talks with HHC.
Analysts had expected Ladbrokes to become a stand-alone business if the merger between the two hotel groups goes ahead with the possibility of a stock market listing for the betting shop chain.
The shares rose 10 to 367p in early trading.”
“Hilton and Starwood Settle Dispute
By PETER LATTMAN
DECEMBER 22, 2010 4:39 PM 4 Comments
A bitter legal dispute between two of the world’s largest hotel chains has come to an end.
Hilton Worldwide and Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide have settled a lawsuit that accused Hilton executives of stealing confidential documents related to Starwood’s successful W chain, according to a court filing Wednesday.
As part of the settlement, Hilton has agreed to make a $75 million cash payment to Starwood, according to several people with knowledge of the pact. Starwood is also be entitled to another $75 million in hotel-management contracts.
In addition, the deal subjects Hilton to an injunction, approved by a federal judge, that prohibits the hotel chain from introducing any lifestyle hotels for two years. And two court-appointed monitors — effectively corporate baby sitters — will be required to supervise Hilton’s operations and ensure it complies with the injunction.
“Given the facts, we had no choice but to stand up and protect our brands,” Frits van Paasschen, Starwood’s chief executive, said in a statement Wednesday. “This settlement reinforces this protection and restores a level playing field for fair competition.”
The corporate espionage suit, which was filed in April 2009, dealt a business blow to Hilton, halting the development of its Denizen brand, which it hoped would compete against the W hotels. It came at a time when the hotel industry was buffeted by the global recession.
The legal controversy has also been an embarrassment for Hilton’s private equity owner, Blackstone, which had paid $26 billion for the hotel chain at the peak of the market in 2007.
The hotel company’s prospects have brightened since a major revamping of its debt-heavy balance sheet and since its financial results improved.
“Hilton Worldwide regrets the circumstances surrounding the dispute with Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide and is pleased to bring an end to this prolonged litigation,” Christopher J. Nassetta, Hilton’s chief executive, said in a statement.
A federal grand jury in Manhattan continues to investigate whether Hilton and its former executives should face criminal charges of theft in the case, according to the court filing.
The United States attorney’s office has advised Hilton that based on its investigation to date it does not intend to bring criminal charges against the hotel chain, according to a person with direct knowledge of the matter who asked for anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly about it. Hilton continues to cooperate with the investigation, said a company spokesman.
The case centered on Starwood’s W hotel chain, which dominates a lucrative industry niche called lifestyle hotels. With 37 locations around the globe from Hoboken, N.J., to Hong Kong, the W hotel is aimed at the young and affluent. “Inspiring, iconic, innovative and influential, W Hotels provides the ultimate in insider access to a world of ‘Wow,’ ” says the chain’s Web site.
It was that wow factor that Hilton sought to replicate with its own lifestyle hotels. To make that happen, Hilton hired two Starwood executives, Ross Klein and Amar Lalvani, to develop a new lifestyle brand.
In March 2009, with great fanfare, Hilton introduced Denizen Hotels aimed at what it described as “globally-conscious modern travelers.”
A month later, Starwood sued Hilton, Mr. Klein and Mr. Lalvani, accusing them of stealing more than 100,000 documents containing Starwood’s “most competitively sensitive information.” Starwood also claimed that the theft had been condoned by the highest levels of Hilton management.
The lawsuit claimed that before they left Starwood, Mr. Klein and Mr. Lalvani stole thousands of confidential documents from their employer that effectively were the blueprints for beginning a hotel brand. These included a concept Starwood had been developing called the “zen den.” The complaint noted that Hilton executives referred to the Denizen brand as a “den of zen.”
The settlement restricts Mr. Klein and Mr. Lalvani from working at certain hotel companies for the next two years.
“Amar is very pleased that this matter has been amicably resolved and looks forward to focusing his attention, energy and considerable talents on more productive and constructive endeavors,” said Christopher J. Morvillo, Mr. Lalvani’s lawyer.
“We continue to deny the allegations in the complaint, but we’re glad this civil matter is behind him and will continue to act ethically and with integrity in the future,” said Ronald J. Nessim, a lawyer for Mr. Klein.

““Serco warns on profits as government ban is lifted”
January 30, 2014 11:27 am
“The UK government gave the all-clear for Serco to win public sector work on Thursday but it was not enough to spare the outsourcing group from shareholders’ wrath, as it warned a series of botched contracts would continue to take a toll on profits.”
“Serco, which runs facilities from prisons and hospitals to air-traffic control towers in the UK, had been barred from winning fresh government work after it was referred to the City of London police for manipulating figures on a prison van escorting contract, and to the Serious Fraud Office for overcharging for electronic tagging.”
“But the government said on Thursday that it was reassured Serco “had developed a thorough plan for corporate renewal”. Although it will continue to monitor the group, the Cabinet Office said it had “accepted this plan represents the right direction of travel to meet our expectations as a customer”.
“The good news from the government was overshadowed by a 12.3 per cent fall in the company’s share price to 447p in early afternoon trading.”
“Although Serco welcomed the news that it would be considered “on an equal basis” with other suppliers for public sector contracts, it also warned that the scandals would continue to have a “negative impact” on profitability this year. Investors expected operating profit of £277m for the year ending December 2014, but Serco said the final figure could be between 10 per cent and 20 per cent lower.”
