#2117: Marine Links Auld Alliance of Red Switch Serco Power in Glasgow Yes to Katrina Waypoint and Clutha Crash
Plum City – (AbelDanger.net): United States Marine Field McConnell has linked an Auld Alliance crime group with powers over Serco’s Red Switch Network and the ‘Yes’ voters in Glasgow to Auld Alliance insurance frauds which used imputed waypoints to ‘place’ Hurricane Katrina over New Orleans and crash a police helicopter into the Clutha Pub.
McConnell alleges that the Auld Alliance crime group extorted absolute control over British military satellite communications and the U.S. Defense Red Switch Network in 2003 by forcing HMG* to outsource No 1001 Signal Unit operations at RAF Oakhanger to Serco and the Airbus [was EADS Astrium] subsidiary, Paradigm, in a crony Private Finance Initiative (PFI) with Fiona Woolf’s Invisibles and the City Livery Companies.
HMG* = Her Majesty’s Government
McConnell’s Abel Danger research team is ready to help investigators reverse engineer the alleged Auld Alliance insurance frauds at Red Switch crime scenes where there is evidence of death by imputed way point and the positioning of “experts of unknown provenance” before the crime occurs.

Scottish independence: Glasgow votes ‘Yes’
The majority of voters in Glasgow voted “Yes”
Glasgow was among the significant victories for the “Yes” campaign in Thursday’s referendum.
A total of 53.49% of the electorate in Scotland’s largest city backed independence, although turnout was lower than in other areas at 75%.
Before accepting defeat nationally, First Minister Alex Salmond thanked the city for its “incredible support”.
Elsewhere in the west of Scotland, West Dunbartonshire also backed “Yes”, but all other council areas voted “No”.
Mr Salmond tweeted: “Well done to Glasgow, our commonwealth city, and to the people of Scotland for such a incredible support.””
“Franco-Scottish alliance against England one of longest in history
12 Aug 2011
A University of Manchester historian has uncovered evidence which shows how a defensive alliance against England between Scotland and France might never have formally ended – potentially making it the longest in history. In a paper to be published next year, Dr Siobhan Talbott argues the Franco-Scottish Auld Alliance of 1295 survived centuries of enmity and war between Britain and France – even after the Act of Union was signed in 1707. Trade, she says, is a major reason for its longevity.
The prevailing view of historians that Scotland sided with the English, moving away from her friendship with France after 1560, when the country converted to Protestantism, is also disputed by Dr Talbott.
J. Macpherson, published in Scottish Field in 1967, says Dr Talbott, showed that France refused to accept Westminster’s abrogation of the Scottish side of the Auld Alliance in 1906, following the Entente Cordiale between Britain and France. By French law, a Scotsman born before 1907 still possesses the full rights and privileges of Franco-Scottish nationality.
The 716-year-old citizenship and trading privileges enjoyed by Scots in France, she suggests, are possibly intact today.
Dr Talbott said: “It’s going to be difficult to prove conclusively that Auld Alliance of 1295 is the longest in history – but there is strong evidence to suggest that this could indeed be the case.
“If we accept 1906 as an ‘end date’, this would make the Auld Alliance 611 years old, compared to 638 years for what many regard as world’s oldest alliance between England and Portugal.
“However, when Charles de Gaulle spoke in Edinburgh in June 1942, he stated that the Auld Alliance was ‘the oldest alliance in the world’.”
Previously, historians have argued the 1560 Treaty of Edinburgh, along with Scotland’s conversion to Protestantism, ended the Auld Alliance between Scotland and France.
But not so according to Dr Talbott: some French troops remained in Scotland and there is no reference to ending the Alliance in the text.
Even during the eighteenth century – after the Act of Union was signed – Scotland and France continued to have an active and close relationship, based on the historic Auld Alliance.
Trade flourished between the two countries, even though France was Catholic and Scotland Protestant.
Scottish merchants paid less or no customs at some French ports, whereas some ports would not trade with the English at all.
The Scots exported a range of goods including coal, wool and animal skins to France.
And French exports included salt, wine, luxury cloth, musical instruments, furniture, beds and spectacles.
Despite some difficulties for Protestant Scots, there were well established communities in Bordeaux, Paris and La Rochelle throughout the seventeenth century.
Dr Talbott said: “It has been previously recognised that trade continued to take place between the two countries in the eighteenth century.
“But by examining merchants’ records from the period, I can now say that it was much more extensive than realised, and that it continued despite conflict such as war which many historians have maintained prevented it.
She added: “Scots saw their country as an independent entity throughout the eighteenth century, even after the Union of the Scottish and English monarchies in1603 and the Union of their parliaments in 1707 – and other European nations regarded them like that too.
“This might explain why Scots seem to have more of a notion of independence than the English, who appear to more readily see themselves as ‘British’ – and it will be interesting to see if the results of the 2011 Census and the proposed 2014 referendum on Scottish Independence reflects this.””
“RAF Oakhanger was the home of No 1001 Signal Unit, responsible for supporting satellite communications services for the British Armed Forces worldwide. The unit was made up of four sub-units; Space Operations, Ground Operations, Telemetry and Control and Support with subordinate detachments based at RAF Rudloe Manor, RAF Colerne and RAF Defford. Command and Control of the system was conducted from Oakhanger, with a planning unit based at Rudloe Manor, co-located with No1 Signal Unit and Controller Defence Communication Network. The Colerne and Defford detachments provided a ground anchoring capability for the communications spacecraft. The Defford detachment was managed by the Defence Evaluation and Research Agency, later QinetiQ.
Space Squadron was responsible for flying a constellation of Skynet satellites, up to the fourth iteration of six space vehicles which supported Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force units. The space vehicles were controlled on a permanent basis from Oakhanger with command and control traffic being passed from one of the three ground stations. Space Squadron also controlled the flight of space vehicles on behalf of NATO, with an earth station at the nearby NATO ground terminal. The constellation comprised geosynchronous satellites, providing Earth coverage and higher power coverage over Northern Europe.
Ground services took responsibility for planning the routing of traffic via the space vehicles, from a number of locations in the United Kingdom to either stationary ground terminals such as Germany, Cyprus, Ascension Island and the Falkland Islands or tactical ground terminals, mounted in ships or vehicles and operated by Tactical Communications Wing, 30 Signal Regiment, 16 Signal Regiment, 264 (SAS) Signal Squadron or the Royal Marines Signal Squadrons.
Support to British military satellite communications was outsourced to EADS Astrium subsidiary company Paradigm Secure Communications in 2003 in a [Auld Alliance] Private Finance Initiative arrangement. The station was subsequently decommissioned, closed and handed over to Paradigm at that time. Paradigm Secure Communications is now known as Astrium Services.
The three sites are now designated Telemetry & Command Station Oakhanger, Satellite Ground Station Oakhanger and Satellite Ground Terminal F4 (operated on behalf of NATO). The sites are now used to support the Skynet 5 constellation.”
“Astrium was an aerospace subsidiary of the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company (EADS) that provided civil and military space systems and services from 2006 to 2013. In 2012, Astrium had a turnover of €5.8 billion and 18,000 employees in France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Spain and the Netherlands. Astrium was a member of Institute of Space, its Applications and Technologies.
In late 2013 Astrium was merged with Cassidian, the defence division of EADS and Airbus Military to form Airbus Defence & Space. EADS itself reorganized as the Airbus Group, with three divisions that include Airbus, Airbus Defence & Space, and Airbus Helicopters.””
