Is Microsoft going to be the new IBM

About 15 years ago the USA and Europe came up with the US-EU Safe Harbor agreement which has allowed US companies to store European data legally. The agreement was invalidated by the European courts on October 6th.

There have been several interesting developments since then, most notably a rather innovative move by Microsoft yesterday.

In the mean time, here in Redmond, “Microsoft announced today that it is opening a data center in Germany which will be owned and controlled by Deutsche Telecom, a German company. The effect of this move is that any requests to access data in this facility will have to go through Deutsche Telecom and the German government.

This move by Microsoft is in direct response to the NSA/Snowden revelations and their inability to protect customer data from US intelligence. According to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella “We need to earn both trust of our global customers and operate globally. That’s at the cornerstone of how we’€™ve done business and how we will continue to do business.”

Do we want to entrust the privacy of every man, woman and child in Europe to the German Government?

Speaking personally, I don’t know whether this is jumping out of the frying pan into the fire, as I recall it was in 1933 that the US through IBM (the Microsoft of its day) supplied what was then the latest state of the art Hollerith punch card technology to the German Government to assist them in building their dream of a Greater Europe. We are all aware of how this equipment was used by the Gestapo. IBM and its subsidiaries helped create enabling technologies, step-by-step, from the identification and cataloguing programs of the 1930s to the selections of the 1940s. IBM technology was used to organize nearly everything in Germany and then Nazi Europe, from the identification of the Jews in censuses, registrations, and ancestral tracing programs to the running of railroads and organizing of concentration camp slave labour.

That move was initially opposed by the German people, until they were silenced with the now famous quote by Joseph Goebbels “If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear”.

I leave you to decide on whether this move by Microsoft is good or potentially dangerous, but bearing in mind that as Microsoft software operates on approximately 90% of all user computer equipment, and is now specifically built to spy extensively on its users with Windows 10, with that spyware being retroactively applied to Windows 7/Windows 8 and Window 8.1 through updates, I have no doubt of its potential value to Germany and the (EU) European Project in 2015.

MI5 unhappy with Snapchat & WhatsApp

Andrew Parker, the head of MI5, has condemned popular encrypted sexting apps such as Snapchat and WhatsApp for allowing terrorists to communicate freely. Speaking in his first live interview, Parker demanded that technology companies provide the government access to their secure communication services. Good luck selling that to the Randian libertarians in Silicon Valley…

“Shifts in technology and particularity internet technology and the use of encryption and so on, are creating a situation where law enforcement agencies and security agencies can no longer obtain under proper legal warrant the contents of communications between people they have reason to believe are terrorists. I think that is a very serious issue, it requires that there is a legal framework to authorise, but it also requires the cooperation of the companies who run and provide services over the internet that we all use.”

We all understand the need for the security services to monitor and catch terrorists and spies, however, and this is a big however, when those same security services and the governments behind them stop undertaking mass surveillance of the general population, and concentrate solely upon the terrorists and spies, then perhaps the same public at large will agree that they need access to the communications of those specific groups, WITHIN A LEGAL FRAMEWORK, i.e. warranted interceptions. No more, no less and with no scope creep.

Until the mass surveillance ends, there will be very few who will want tech companies to grant open access. This lack of access to certain types of communication and the growth in encrypted messaging is a direct result of government actions. Do not blame the public for what government has done.

The majority of people have nothing to hide, but that does not mean that they wish their entire life to be stored and become accessible to all and sundry simply because they have a ‘government’ badge.

Edward Snowden taught us all one very important lesson. Your freedom comes at a price, but giving every detail of your life up to a government that will suck that life out of you is not the right price.

Email privacy

Are you getting fed up with every man and his dog reading your emails… either government who have now given themselves the power to read everything.. or the free service providers such as Microsoft and Gmail, who then target adverts at you based upon the content of your emails… and we all know that these providers regularly sell off their email addresses to corporates so that they can target their spam at you…

It’s time to get some of your privacy back… and having been using this service for the past month or so, I am recommending using a new end to end encrypted email service based in Switzerland called Protonmail.


It’s free, its web based and its fully end to end encrypted. You can even send encrypted email to non Protonmail users, and if you choose you can also download your public key to send to users who are already using inline PGP.

Emails are automatically end-to-end encrypted inside their email service. Because of this, they cannot decrypt or share your data with third parties.

There is a waiting list for their services however, as demand has outstripped their ability to supply, but they are filling in the gaps very quickly, and are currently running beta testing on IoS and Android apps, so you will be able to take your encrypted email mobile.

Privacy is a basic human right, it’s why we have front doors, or curtains over our windows, and our email conversations should be no different.

You can read about Protonmail on

or sign-up for a free secure email account here.

We Will Remember Them

They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

They mingle not with their laughing comrades again;
They sit no more at familiar tables of home;
They have no lot in our labour of the day-time;
They sleep beyond England’s foam


They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Where is the world’s wealth?

We all know by now how the banking system works, using the Fractional Reserve Banking method to create money out of thin air, loan it out, register it as an asset and charge interest on the repayments. Instant wealth creation for the banks and their owners.

We also know that governments around the world bleed their citizens dry with taxes, which are then fed to corporations, banks and individuals by way of grants, subsidies or bailout funding of some sort.

We have also seen the statistic that states that the world’s 85 richest people own more of that wealth than the bottom half of humanity, some 3.5 billion people.

But what do these wealthy people do with it. Put it in a bank?.. Well yes and no, because most of the banks that you and I use are regulated and they don’t want their wealth within the grasp of officialdom. They use private banks, so private that most are completely unknown. They sit outside of any regulatory or supranational bodies and are therefore untouchable and untaxable, and we not talking here of a few millions, or even billions, these people have trillions tucked away.

And having accumulated all that wealth, how do they use it? By using the Shadow Banking system and unregulated brokers. “Shadow banking, as usually defined, comprises a diverse set of institutions and markets that, collectively, carry out traditional banking functions–but do so outside, or in ways only loosely linked to, the traditional system of regulated depository institutions. Examples of important components of the shadow banking system include securitization vehicles, asset-backed commercial paper (ABCP) conduits, money market mutual funds, markets for repurchase agreements (repos), investment banks, and mortgage companies.”

Shadow banking has grown in importance to rival traditional depository banking and was a primary factor in the subprime mortgage crisis of 2007-2008 and global recession that followed.

One such ‘Broker’ out of many in this unregulated and untaxed arena is Clement Associates, who pitch themselves thus.

Specialising in Gold, Platinum and Petrochemicals trading, Clement Associates leverages its worldwide presence to deliver exceptional execution and clearing services for private, commercial and institutional clients.

We also provide unparalleled expertise in equities, foreign exchange, commercial foreign exchange and alternative investment strategies. This comprehensive offering allows us to effectively and proactively respond to your most sophisticated trading and hedging needs.

Our commitment to partnering with each client is based on the concepts of high-quality personalized service and cutting-edge innovation. We are dedicated to empowering investors with integrated global-trading solutions and expert analysis.

Clement Associates keep themselves well clear of any regulation with their terms and conditions specifying the following:

The information and opinions provided on this Site are not intended and should not be distributed or used by, any person, firm or enterprise anywhere where distribution or use would be contrary to the laws or regulations of that jurisdiction or country or which might subject CLEMENT ASSOCIATES to any registration or government filing requirement.

Such a requirement to avoid any registration or government filing requirement would also mean that they remained outside of any tax jurisdiction. Just what the uber rich need, can’t be going paying taxes like the little people.

$100 million minimum investment, the sort of money it might not be an idea to put on the market or register anywhere, same goes for the procurement and sale of military equipment which Clement Associates also undertake.

No registrations, no addresses, no phone numbers, and no mention of legal jurisdictions in the T&C’s.

This is how the uber rich remain the uber rich, money just keeps making money and when you get to keep it all, none of it declared, none of it subject to taxation, we can see how the world’s wealth will keep heading in a single direction, up to those who have it and are keeping it to the detriment of the wider population.


Now before I finish this post, I come on to the matter of the man who supposedly runs Clement Associates. This is the fake ‘Lord’ Anthony Leitrim, aka Tony Clements, the ex Guards Polo Club coffee shop manager, whose LinkedIn profile provides the following information.

Lord Anthony Leitrim

Clements Associates International

September 1979 – Present (35 years 1 month) United Kingdom

International Merchant Venturer – seeking and procuring trade on an international basis at Ruling family, Government and Corporate levels, and high net worth individuals – ‘not’ to be confused with the ancient Bristol based Merchant Venturers order founded on the slave trade amongst other things…

And although his LinkedIn profile has a link to Clement Associates, (note the subtle difference) it is my understanding that it’s just another front on his part, pretending to be something he is not.

Tony Clements aka 'Lord' Leitrim.

Tony Clements aka the fake ‘Lord’ Leitrim.

It’s interesting that this fake ‘Lord’ is pretending to be a Peer of the Realm by using a title made defunct in 1952, closed down by the FSA in 2004 (or so he told the Daily Mail, see below) for unregulated offshore investments, made bankrupt in 2004 upon which he paid dividends in 2010 before moving to Marbella in Spain, and I understand is under investigation again by Europol.

Over to Debrett’s: “This man who is calling himself Lord Leitrim hasn’t gone through the official channels and as far as we are concerned the title is extinct.” Scroll down to ‘Lord Cappuccino – full of beans’.

Not all he’s cracked up to be this fake ‘Lord’, he likes to be photographed on big multimillion pound yachts or leaning on Rolls Royces whilst pretending to be a Peer of the Realm, (no Letters Patent can be found) but I can assure you none of them are his. He is just a well connected con-man and obsessive philanderer, who does rather well out of society balls and charity events to rub shoulders with the rich and famous, and the shunned wannabee’s now living in southern Spain.

Writing the book

Well I have been really busy this past month, often only getting to bed as others are getting up. The first 4 chapters (The Meeting, The Wedding, Austerity, 50 Shades in Blaenavon) will be ready for delivery to the publisher later this week for proof reading, legal assessment and editing.

Michelle Parker & IanPJ on Honeymoon in Rome 2006

Michelle Parker & IanPJ on Honeymoon in Rome 2006

Covering the period 2005-2014 it details our meeting, the long weekend together, our first year together, a wedding from heaven, then the first 4 years of a good strong healthy happy marriage, the trust and unconditional love up until time my money runs out, then into a period of austerity, job hunting, depression, withdrawal, indiscretions, holiday, rethinking goals, followed by setups, assumptions, lies, collusion, deciet and finally separation, followed by an attempt at reconcilliation on my part, but which was used by her as a ploy to simply gain time to get herself established with the least resistance but not expecting me to discover the cheating, lying, cuckolding and humiliation. Still, she always did chase the money.. what was mine was ours, what was hers was hers.

I have tried to keep this as fair and balanced as I can, and given the praise where it is due so it’s not a one sided story, but I can only write from my perspective, it is an autobiography after all, except where her words are quoted.

The 2 final chapters are by far the largest, bulked out to a large extent with direct quotations from text messages and a host of new information from emails. (I managed to recover the bulk of the deleted emails from the 2012/2013 archives, many of which have really shocked me, and I am sorry to say are likely to shock many of her family & friends).

At 233 pages its almost enough to form a book of its own, so expecting some form of discussion with publisher on how they would like to proceed with this.

Whilst this project began in anger it is now simply a commercial enterprise for me, and although I have no marital interest any longer I would love one last shagging weekend with her, to say goodbye properly, as I cannot deny the pain and love is still there, it simply will not die in me and its still eating me up inside.

Hopefully as the focus changes to the next period, the years 1995/2004, my freedom years, I can ease some of that pain.

Our ancient Customs & Liberties being destroyed

Liberty Lib”er*ty (l[i^]b”[~e]r*t[y^]), n.; pl. Liberties
(-t[i^]z). [OE. liberte, F. libert[‘e], fr. L. libertas, fr.
liber free. See Liberal.]
1. The state of a free person; exemption from subjection to
the will of another claiming ownership of the person or
services; freedom; — opposed to slavery, serfdom,
bondage, or subjection.
[1913 Webster]

Our forefathers worked long and hard, sacrificed much and in many cases shed their blood so that future generations could be guaranteed the continuation of our ancient Customs and Liberties, and the protection of our constitution.

Our key constitutional documents are these:

That Liberty they fought for included exemption from subjection by the State. This is now being undermined by a whole new raft of EU legislation, some of which is being manipulated through the UK parliament as we speak by what I can only refer to as traitors. All EU law undermines our constitution, all EU law undermines our rule of law, all EU law undermines our ancient Customs & Liberties as laid down by our consitituion, and its going to get worse.

Herman Van Rompuy said in a statement on economics: The EP and national parliaments both have a crucial role to play in legitimising future governance structures, he stressed, adding that a lack of legitimacy had been a flaw in the old stability and growth pact.

It is pleasing to hear direct from the horses mouth, the unelected Van Rompuy, that the EU, the unelected European Commission and its governance structures stand illegitimate.

We now discover that the judiciary, subjugated by politicians, ejected from our parliamentary structure, and no longer permitted to independently uphold our Common Law against these traitors, are in the main now part of variously open and secret networks across Europe in furtherance of the EU Project.

A new document has recently come to light, outlining some of the networks to which our judiciary have allowed themselves to become attached.

A draft working paper by Noreen O’Meara, PhD candidate, Queen Mary, University of London and Lecturer in Law, University of Surrey describes the context:

The role of the (EU) ‘national’ judge
Meanings, forms and patterns of ‘judicial dialogue’
The emergence of transnational judicial networks

It shows in some detail how our judiciary have been infiltrated, subjugated and our ancient Right & Customs are being trashed. To their shame.

The arrest of Judge Michael Peake in Birkenhead on the 7th March 2011 is likely to be the first of many, as the public begin to push back, realising that in so many cases our judiciary is no longer ‘acting under oath’ in the protection of our laws and customs, but playing the EU Corpus Juris legislative and administrative court game instead.

Battle has already commenced.

The Fabian technique of perverting the Parliamentary system to destroy responsible Government was warned against by the famous former Lord Chief Justice of England, Lord Hewart, in his great classic, The New Despotism (1929).

Lord Hewart made the following serious charge:
“A mass of evidence establishes the fact that there is in existence a persistent and well-contrived system, intending to produce, and in practice producing, a despotic power which at one and the same time places Government departments beyond the sovereignty of Parliament and beyond the jurisdiction of the Courts.”
The “persistent and well-contrived system” has been expanded enormously since Lord Hewart wrote his book

Book Stuff and more

BOOK STUFF & more.
Nothing to do with emotions anymore, this is just business.

In doing my own review of the book submitted so far, I have realised that some important areas have been missed out in my haste, coupled with the information in new emails that I have retrieved from the archives.

There were two areas which were glossed over in my first draft, to which I am now able to add much more meat to the bone, and will be writing in more detail about my wifes spending and the affairs that she claimed she never had.

Also as I had been so intent on focusing on the marriage breakdown, cuckolding and slease, in my haste I had overlooked my entry into the political world, and the time and effort taken to start a new technology business from scratch, the driving force behind it and the toll it took at home, so those sections need to be written and added to my draft.

As a result of this, I had a telephone discussion with my lawyer earlier today, and will at some stage in the future be taking certain actions.

Michelle Parker with IanPJ


I will be initiating a legal claim to recover many thousands of pounds of my monies which my wife (Michelle Parker) took without my knowledge or permission whilst I was working away, making me unwittingly the Bank of Blaenavon, to pay off the debts of her friends, to repatriate her mother from Spain, and money she gave to her sister to help alleviate a near bankruptcy, and anything else brought to light during the discovery process, which may involve a subpoena of bank records.

UK Parliament comes to an effective end

On the 1st November 2014 the right of Parliament to legislate over us in 43 areas, the important ones, will be removed and be made subject to approval. They call it QMV, Qualified Majority Voting.

Each member State will lose it right of Veto over these areas, so Cameron’s idea of  negotiation to recover any areas goes out the window at the same time.

The following areas of competence will switch from requiring unanimous approval of all member states to qualified majority voting only:

Initiatives of the High Representative for Foreign Affairs – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Administrative co-operation – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Asylum – Nice: QMV; Lisbon: QMV
Border controls – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Citizens’ initiative regulations – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Civil protection – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Committee of the Regions – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Common defence policy – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Crime prevention incentives – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Criminal judicial co-operation – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Criminal law – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Culture – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Diplomatic & Consular protection – Nice: Unanimity Lisbon: QMV
Economic & Social Committee – Nice: QMV Lisbon: QMV
Emergency international aid – Nice: Unanimity Lisbon: QMV
Energy – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
EU budget – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Eurojust – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
European Central Bank – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV

Freedom to establish a business – Nice: Unanimity Lisbon QMV
Freedom, security, justice, co-operation & evaluation – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Funding the Common Foreign & Security Policy – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
General economic interest services – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Humanitarian aid – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Immigration – Nice: QMV; Lisbon: QMV
Intellectual property – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Organisation of the Council of the EU – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Police co-operation – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
President of the European Council election – Lisbon: QMV
Response to natural disasters & terrorism – Lisbon: QMV
Rules concerning the Armaments Agency – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Self-employment access rights – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Social Security Unanimity – Nice: QMV; Lisbon: QMV
Space – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Sport – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Structural & Cohension Funds – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Tourism – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Transport – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV
Withdrawal of a member state – Lisbon: QMV

A brief review of the Treaties confirms the Transitional arrangements which allow, only on specific votes, for the Nice Treaty Provisions to apply from 1st November 2014 until March 2017, hence I imagine PM David Cameron’s determination to delay our referendum beyond that date, tying Britain for ever within the non-democratic, totalitarian and now clearly despotic EU.

For your reference, if anyone interested in the Treaty Articles behind this change, here is the legal bit.
