Earth PLC | Whose in whose bed

Considering that every class and creed of people have their own favourite watering holes, it is surely no different for the Political Class.  Like celebrities like to hang around with fellow celebrities, so do the powerbrokers.  Problem with the powerbrokers meeting under Chatham House rules means the unmentionable is not only mentioned, but discussed in such a manner to make it seem as trivial as brushing ones’ teeth.

A wonderful snippet from the Daily Wail’s Tony Blair bashing piece gives us a link between the Gaddafi clan of Libya with the Eurocratic Club in the EU along with the supervision onf their bankers.

The social web that connects the rich and powerful

Saif Gaddafi sits at the centre of a remarkable social web that has ensnared both Tony Blair and Lord Mandelson.

The men are bound together by their interests in Libyan business and their friendship with the multi-billionaire financiers of the Rothschild family.

Lord Mandelson once remarked that he was ‘intensely relaxed’ about extreme wealth, a position he has justified ever since. It was only natural that he should share an interest in networking and wealth with one of the world’s oldest banking families.

But even the Rothschilds have probably never described him as a ‘killer of a man’.

That was Saif Gaddafi’s take on the former Business Secretary. After Labour’s election defeat, Mr Gaddafi said: ‘It’s bad news for the UK that he left because he is a killer of a man. It’s a loss for the UK.’

The two men met briefly last summer at the secluded cliff top mansion compound of the Rothschild family on the holiday island of Corfu.

Curiously, their stays overlapped by one night and came only a week before the announcement-that the perpetrator of the Lockerbie bombing could be released from prison.

They ‘fleetingly’ discussed the fate of the bomber Abdelbaset Ali Al Megrahi but Lord Mandelson’s spokesman said he was ‘ completely unsighted’ on the impending release.

Last November, Lord Mandelson spent more time in the company of Saif during a shooting weekend at Waddesdon Manor, Lord Rothschild’s mini-Versailles in Buckinghamshire. Cherie Blair was also a guest.

Earlier this month, the former business secretary was seen zipping around the Swiss ski resort of Klosters in Nat Rothschild’s £250,000 Ferrari convertible.

An Anglophile, Col Gaddafi’s likely heir Saif studied for a PhD at the London School of Economics. He has a £10million London home.

The International Money-Merry-Go-Round.  I wouldn’t mind so much if I got to see some of the cash, yet nine times out of ten, it is the underclass who carry the burden.

Nothing gets in the way of business, be it Libyan dictatorships or Burmese juntas.
