1. Abel Danger (AD) claims that Serco shareholders is planning to protect selected elites from nuclear attacks while threatening U.K. citizens with cancellation of the 4 minute warning of such attacks for voting to leave the EU in the recent Brexit referendum.
2. AD claims that Serco hacked former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton‘s server to place 8(a) saboteurs and assassins inside EU war rooms – especially the NATO HQ and EU Situation Center in Brussels – to strike targets after defenses have been stood down.
3. AD claims that David Cameron and a Scottish elite are developing a Serco Command Post exercise to threaten the English with a nuclear attack unless they let the Scots have a referendum to leave the UK and transfer U.S.-made Trident nukes to the EU.
4. United States Marine Field McConnell can show those who may be deprived of the 4-minute warning how to neutralize Serco‘s shareholders, shut down Clinton’s 8(a) program and restore custody of nuclear weapons to the legitimate representatives of We, the People.

Brexit Impacts on Trident
24/06/2016 16:39 | Updated 3 days ago
Paul Ingram Executive Director of the British American Security Information Council (BASIC) The potential fall-out from the UK vote to leave the EU cannot be over-estimated. The political, economic and constitutional implications are deeply uncertain. The market turmoil and the plunge in the value of the pound will translate into massive financial pressures on government spending. The pressures for constitutional referenda in Scotland and Northern Ireland have just strengthened dramatically. Political parties in the UK are now preparing for a General Election in the next few months as an inevitable response to the perfect storm of an unelected Prime Minister and a new Chancellor negotiating departure from the EU with majority opposition to Brexit in Parliament.
We will see major additional cuts in public spending over the coming months, the only question is how big and whether they will be sufficient to steady confidence in the deficit. The government will be under huge financial pressure to suspend major project investments as officials reassess the ability to pay. Government departments will be working overtime in the coming weeks under instruction from the Treasury to find savings quickly. This is not the environment for an early smooth decision to move forward on Trident. Like Emily Thornberry’s rapid move to postpone the Labour Party’s policy review, the government will be suspending any plans they may have had to take this to a vote this summer.
But where does this leave Britain’s foreign and defence policy, and the role of its nuclear arsenal within it?
Of course there will be much speculation over what was behind this vote – obviously a scepticism over the European project, fears over migration and a disaffection with ‘the establishment’. But there is also a deep attachment to nationalistic sentiments that are difficult to counter and which were encouraged by many in the Remain camp (‘Britain Stronger in Europe’). Pride in Britain’s ability to stand alone will tend to play strongly in favour of investing in the next generation of nuclear weapons, whatever the cost. There is even an argument that Britain out of Europe needs nuclear weapons all the more as a symbol of its independence, or its relationship with the United States and NATO.”
“Cameron hails new era of Franco-British military and nuclear co-operation [Some call it treason]
Friday 17 February 2012 At a meeting in Paris yesterday, David Cameron and Nicolas Sarkozy agreed that Britain and France would strengthen their military and nuclear co-operation, create a joint command and control centre for armed operations, and speed the development of a new generation of battlefield drones. The new Anglo-French civil nuclear agreements, potentially worth £10bn in the longer term, will create 1,500 jobs and bring in £500m in new commercial nuclear deals.”
“How Washington owns the UK’s nukes
London’s nuclear dependency cuts to the heart of the US-UK Special Relationship.
By JAKE WALLIS SIMON
4/30/15, 4:11 PM CET Updated 5/3/15, 11:07 AM CET LONDON — In the run-up to the British general election, there has been intense debate about the future of Trident, the United Kingdom’s nuclear weapons program, which will reach the end of its serviceable life in 2026. Party leaders in the next parliament must decide whether to scrap it, replace it with a scaled-back alternative, or update it.
But there is one simple question that nobody is asking. When is an independent nuclear deterrent not an independent nuclear deterrent? To many experts, the answer is all too obvious: when the maintenance, design, and testing of UK submarines depend on Washington, and when the nuclear missiles aboard them are on lease from Uncle Sam.
No British politician is addressing this issue, and it shows. Informed voters are probably familiar with the various parties’ declared stances on the Trident question, but few Britons have any idea that the United States is even involved in the program, let alone their country’s nuclear benefactor.
Instead, Trident is being presented as a purely domestic matter, and one of the few in modern British politics that puts clear ideological water between Left and Right. The Tories have pledged £100 billion ($154 billion) to upgrade the program. The insurgent Scottish Nationalists — who will probably hold the balance of power in the likely event of a hung parliament — want to scrap the weapons altogether (the nukes are based in Scotland), as do the Greens and Plaid Cymru. The remaining parties fall somewhere in between.
At a deeper political level, however, Trident cuts to the heart of the US-UK Special Relationship, and its contrasting significance for London and Washington.
In 2006, Parliament’s Select Committee on Defense presented a White Paper to Parliament containing a granular analysis of the Trident program. Although it is now almost a decade old, NATO sources have confirmed that the paper remains the benchmark for non-classified information on Britain’s nuclear weapons, as very little has changed since. And it lays bare the extent of the UK’s nuclear reliance on America.
The report makes for striking reading. The UK does not even own its Trident missiles, but rather leases them from the United States. British subs must regularly visit the US Navy’s base at King’s Bay, Georgia, for maintenance or re-arming. And since Britain has no test site of its own, it tries out its weapons under US supervision at Cape Canaveral, off the Florida coast.
A huge amount of key Trident technology — including the neutron generators, warheads, gas reservoirs, missile body shells, guidance systems, GPS, targeting software, gravitational information and navigation systems — is provided directly by Washington, and much of the technology that Britain produces itself is taken from US designs (the four UK Trident submarines themselves are copies of America’s Ohio-class Trident submersibles).
The list goes on. Britain’s nuclear sites at Aldermaston and Davenport are partly run by the American companies Lockheed Martin and Halliburton. Even the organization responsible for the UK-run components of the program, the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE), is a private consortium consisting of one British company, Serco Group PLC, sandwiched between two American ones — Lockheed Martin and the Jacobs Engineering Group. And, to top it all, AWE’s boss, Kevin Bilger — who worked for Lockheed Martin for 32 years — is American.
The UK Government emphasizes that Britain’s Trident submarines are “operationally independent,” meaning that they have an all-British crew and take commands only from the Prime Minister, regardless of whether he is coordinating with NATO and the White House. Some believe that this safeguard is sufficient to counteract Washington’s dominance of the program.”
“Meeting in Washington, DC, on May 17, 2011 US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and EU Foreign Affairs & Security Policy High Rep./European Commission VP Catherine Ashton discussed a number of issues of common concern, including the situations in Libya, Syria, Egypt and Belarus. Following their meeting, Secretary of State Clinton and High Representative Ashton signed a Framework Agreement between the US and the EU, which provides a legal framework for US civilians to participate in EU [Isis] crisis management missions.”
“UK Cabinet Office – Emergency Planning College – Serco …..Types of Exercise Workshop Exercises
These are structured discussion events where participants can explore issues in a less pressurised environment. They are an ideal way of developing solutions, procedures and plans rather than the focus being on decision making. Table Top Exercises These involve a realistic scenario and will follow a time line, either in real-time or with time jumps to concentrate on the more important areas. The participants would be expected to be familiar with the plans and procedures that are being used although the exercise tempo and complexity can be adjusted to suit the current state of training and readiness. Simulation and media play can be used to support the exercise. Table-top exercises help develop teamwork and allow participants to gain a better understanding of their roles and that of other agencies and organisations. Command/Control Post Exercises These are designed primarily to exercise the senior leadership and support staff in collective planning and decision making within a strategic grouping. Ideally such exercises would be run from the real command and control locations and using their communications and information systems [Feeling lucky, Punk?].
This could include a mix of locations and varying levels of technical simulation support. The Gold Standard system is flexible to allow the tempo and intensity to be adjusted to ensure maximum training benefit, or to fully test and evaluate the most important aspects of a plan. Such exercises also test information flow, communications, equipment, procedures, decision making and coordination. Live Exercises These can range from testing individual components of a system or organisation through to a full-scale rehearsal. They are particularly useful where there are regulatory requirements or with high-risk situations. They are more complex and costly to organise and deliver but can be integrated with Command Post Exercises as part of a wider exercising package.”

“[Blackmail] The word is variously derived from the word for tribute (in modern terms, protection racket) paid by English and Scottish border dwellers to Border Reivers in return for immunity from raids and other harassment .. Border reivers were raiders along the Anglo-Scottish border from the late 13th century to the beginning of the 17th century. Their ranks consisted of both Scottishand English families, and they raided the entire Border country without regard to their victims’ nationality. Their heyday was perhaps in the last hundred years of their existence, during the time of the Stewart Kings in Scotland and the Tudor dynasty in England.”
“Police drop investigation into Serco prisoner transport contract
The outsourcing group said there was no evidence of individual or corporate wrongdoing
By Marion Dakers
7:42AM GMT 19 Dec 2014
The City of London Police has closed an investigation into Serco’s prisoner transport contract after more than a year of work, enabling the firm to continue with the contract until 2018.
The Ministry of Justice called in the police in August 2013 to examine whether Serco had misleadingly recorded prisoners as being ready for court when they were not, in order to meet the performance criteria of the contract.
However, Serco said on Friday that the probe into the Prisoner Escort and Custody Services (PECS) contract had been closed after the police found no evidence to support bringing charges against the outsourcing firm or its staff.
“The information obtained was also sufficient for the City of London Police to conclude there was no evidence of any corporate-wide conspiracy or an intention to falsify figures to meet the DRACT [designated ready and available for court time] contract requirement by senior Sercomanagement or at the board level of the company,” the firm said in a statement.
The Ministry of Justice had said it would end the contract immediately if the firm’s board was found to have done wrong.”

“Government still paying G4S and Serco millions for tagging despite ban
Two firms which faced criminal investigations over alleged overcharging received £13.2m between them after losing contract, analysis shows.
Electronic monitoring tags are used to enforce curfews on more than 100,000 offenders each year.

The Ministry of Justice is still paying security firms G4S and Serco millions of pounds every month for supplying electronic tagging equipment, more than a year after both companies were barred from running the contract.
Both companies faced criminal investigations by the Serious Fraud Office over allegations of overcharging that led to them repaying nearly £180m.
The continuing monthly payments to the two companies were uncovered by an analysis of Ministry of Justice (MoJ) data by the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies which shows that G4S was paid a total of £8.7m between March 2014 – when it lost the tagging contract – and February 2015.Serco was paid £4.5m over the same period.
The electronic monitoring tags are used to enforce curfews on more than 100,000 offenders each year. The outsourcing giant Capita took over the contract on an interim basis in April last year. In July 2014, Capita and three other companies were named as the winners of a £265m six-year contract to supply the next generation of satellite tracking tags, which would allow dangerous and repeat offenders to be monitored around the clock.
The MoJ agreed that Capita should continue to use the older G4S/Serco tagging equipment until the first satellite tracking tags were due to come into use by the end of last year.
But there have been continued delays in the development of the satellite tracking tags and the contracts with G4S and Serco to use their equipment have been extended. The Guardian understands that they were given a 15-month extension earlier this year with a further extension possible when that expires in 2016.
Richard Garside of the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies said: “The ministry is continuing to pay G4S and Serco for the supply of electronic tagging equipment months after the contracts should have been terminated, because the timetable for the next generation of satellite tagging technology has slipped and slipped.
“The ministry needs to clarify, as soon as possible, when payments to G4S and Serco will end.”
Garside claimed that the MoJ had originally published inaccurate data showing that the two companies had been paid a total of £32m but had since clarified the figure as being £13.2m.
An MoJ spokeswoman said: “G4S and Serco no longer deliver electronic monitoring services. We have always been clear Capita would continue to use their systems until new tags were developed, which gave taxpayers value for money and put public safety first.”
She said that the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies’ original interpretation of the MoJ data had been incorrect as the bulk of the reported £32m that had been spent had been for the period in 2013 and 2014 when G4S and Serco still held the tagging contract.
The former justice secretary, Chris Grayling, announced in July last year that a small Redditch company, Steatite, would supply the new generation of satellite GPS tracking tags. They in turn sub-contracted to a Taiwanese company, Sanav. But it is understood that the first Steatite tags were rushed into use last year in an attempt to meet Grayling’s end-of-year deadline, but had to be withdrawn amid a dispute over intellectual property rights and other issues. The tags may not be ready until 2016 or later.
G4S runs the largest current satellite tracking programme in the world in France where it tracks the daily movements of 12,000 offenders. A G4S spokesman said: “Our GPS-enabled electronic monitoring technology is a world-leader – designed, developed and exported from our base in Leicester to 17 countries around the world – and we will continue to support the ministry of justice in England and Wales in any way we can.”
This article was amended on 25 June 2015 to make it clear that Steatite, not Capita, was responsible for the delays in the development of the satellite tags.”

Absent a massive and immediate programme of building new power stations, with concrete being poured in the next two years, we will be in serious danger of the lights going out.”
“Serco farewell to NPL after 19 years of innovation
