“David Cameron denies pig initiation ceremony claims
By Ben Riley-Smith, in New York 7:10PM BST 27 Sep 2015
David Cameron has said lurid allegations about his involvement in a university initiation ceremony are untrue as he criticised the former Conservative donor behind the allegations. The Prime Minister rejected a claim made by Lord Ashcroft in a biography that he had “inserted a private part of his anatomy” into a dead pig’s mouth at an initiation ceremony for the Piers Gaveston Society while at Oxford University.”
28 November 2001 Global swoop on newsgroup paedophiles
By Will Knight
More than 130 people in 19 different countries have been arrested or are under investigation after police traced the distribution of child pornography through different internet newsgroups.
Technical experts at UK internet service provider Demon Internet aided officers from the National Crime Squad’s new Hi-Tech Crime Unit with the investigation.
A spokesperson from Thus, Demon’s parent company, says that investigators were not given access to the server logs that record Demon users’ activities.
Investigators were simply provided with access to newsgroup postings in the same way as any other Demon customer. Technical experts from Demon then helped officers distinguish the identifying information contained within the message “headers” of particular postings.
Officers traced postings relating to certain images to different internet service providers around the world and then contacted Interpol to track down suspects.
Investigators say they discovered 10,000 suspect postings to over 30 different newsgroups and identified 60,000 new images. They plan to use face recognition software to identify victims in different images, to help trace them. This software has been developed in conjunction with UK company Serco, although no technical details have been released.
“This operation has sadly and distressingly brought thousands of new images of abuse to our attention,” said Detective Superintendent Peter Spindler of the National Crime Squad. “These young victims need to be identified and protected as quickly as possible.”
Spindler added: “We are able to show that those accessing these newsgroups did so regularly and with purpose.”
Nine regional police forces in the UK were involved in the operation. Warrants for searches or arrests were issued in 19 countries, including Australia, Canada, Germany, Israel, Japan, Russia, Sweden, Turkey, and the US.
According to a report by the BBC, another 400 suspects could not be traced by investigators. Police have not said how they evaded detection but it is possible to post messages to news groups anonymously using intermediary servers that strip away header information.
The UK government introduced legislation in 2000, giving the police greater access to internet communications. Further provisions for the extended storage of data is included in new anti-terrorist legislation currently passing through parliament. Privacy advocates claim that these laws could be misused and some question the justification for the legislation. Peter Sommer, at the London School of Economics computer science department, says that the techniques involved in the latest paedophile investigation did not require a special police warrant.
“It is apparent that the existing legislation was sufficient to help the NCS gather evidence and secure the ISP co-operation needed,” Sommer told New Scientist.””
“Serco suffers profits collapse but on ‘path to recovery’ says CEO
Troubled outsourcer Serco details full extent of its woes and kicks off £555m rights issue
By Alan Tovey, Industry Editor 11:22AM GMT 12 Mar 2015
Shares in the company, which had more than half a billion pounds wiped off its market value in November when it stunned the market with a huge profit warning, tumbled again as Mr Soames set out the full extent of the Serco’s troubles. Revenue fell 6.7pc to £3.96bn – the first decline in 25 years – and the company swung to a £632m trading loss as it took £1.3bn of provisions on onerous contracts, asset impairments and other charges. On a pre-tax basis the performance was even worse, with a loss of £1.35bn. .. The company’s rights issue, on which Rothschild is advising, [https://www.serco.com/about/the-board-and-governance/company-advisers] will see 549m new shares issued.
The scheme is on a 1:1 basis and is priced at 101p, a deeply discounted 51.1pc compared with the previous closing price, and a 34pc discount on theoretical ex-rights price. The fundraising – which is subject to shareholder approval – is fully underwritten and the proceeds will be used to cutSerco’s debt by £450m. At the end of the year Serco’s net debt stood at £682m. The company said that subject to the rights issue’s completion, it had struck an agreement with its creditors to refinance its funding. It is understood that the commission being charged by the rights issue’s underwriters is 2pc – a rate back down at pre-crisis levels and half what many banks were able to impose during rescue fundraisings in the wake of the crash.” A source close to the company said: “This a noticeable reduction in commission charged by underwriters until fairly recently, it’s back at normal levels. “There’s no element in this deal that indicates it’s anything but a straightforward fundraising of new equity and a sign of the backing of Rupert Soames and his new management team.”
“Nathaniel Rothschild says sauna with Lord Mandelson was purely pleasure, not business
Lord Mandelson visited a sauna in Siberia with a Russian oligarch and Nathaniel Rothschild, one of Britain’s richest men, where they were thrashed with birch leaves and plunged into an ice bath together, the High Court heard yesterday.
By Martin Evans 7:00AM GMT 25 Jan 2012
Court 14 of the Royal Courts of Justice heard that the former EU trade commissioner enjoyed the invigorating pleasures of a Russian banya steam bath during a 24-hour visit to the remote region in 2005.
Details of the visit were disclosed as Nathaniel Rothschild continued his libel action against the Daily Mail over an article claiming that he arranged Lord Mandelson’s visit to help smooth a £500 million business deal. v Mr Rothschild claims the former Labour minister’s presence was “purely recreational”.
Lord Mandelson travelled to the region on Jan 30, 2005 as a guest of Mr Rothschild, scion of the banking dynasty, and Oleg Deripaska, the billionaire owner of Russia’s biggest aluminium plant. Also present was Peter Munk, a Canadian gold magnate, and Sebastian Taylor, a friend of Mr Rothschild.
During the trip, the men were thrashed with bundles of birch twigs by a 25-year-old male banya keeper before jumping into ice water to improve circulation and cleanse the skin.

Lord Mandelson courted Mubarak’s dying regime
17 Dec 2011
Often wearing nothing but a conical felt hat to protect the head from the intense 200F heat, Siberians have bathed in banyas for more than 900 years.
Mr Rothschild said: “The whole point of the Siberia trip was that we went there, spent a nanosecond at the [aluminium] smelter, we then went to the most delightful banya.
“We were beaten by a 25-year-old banya keeper man, who has spent his life perfecting the art of banya.
“Then we jumped into ice-cold water. It is the best way in the world to beat jet lag and everything else. It was incredibly enjoyable. Everyone woke up the next day feeling revitalised and excited about the day.”
Mr Justice Tugendhat, who is hearing the case without a jury, was told that Lord Mandelson flew to Russia on Mr Rothschild’s private jet after meeting him at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. According to the Daily Mail article, Mr Rothschild acted like a “puppet-master”, inviting Lord Mandelson along to a dinner in Moscow to “impress” Mr Deripaska, who was in the process of signing a £500 million deal with America’s biggest aluminium company, Alcoa.
It was alleged that Lord Mandelson’s presence was required to assure both parties that EU aluminium import tariffs would not rise in the near future. Mr Rothschild insisted that he only invited Lord Mandelson along because he was a long-standing friend who had expressed an interest in visiting Siberia. The court was told that Lord Mandelson did not attend the dinner at the Cantinetta Antinori restaurant but instead held an informal meeting with a Russian minister in one of the restaurant’s private rooms. Later that evening, the group took Mr Deripaska’s private jet to Abakan in Siberia, where he has business interests and a vast estate.
Cross-examining Mr Rothschild, Andrew Caldecott QC, for Associated Newspapers, said: “We say that to take extensive hospitality from Mr Deripaska, who was not a close personal friend of Lord Mandelson’s before he took office, was inappropriate. To put him in a position of accepting hospitality and taking private jet flights exposed him to allegations of inappropriate behaviour.””
