The oligarchs run the show.
Democracy is disappearing as ordinary people are being stripped of power.
Sir William Ferdinand Mount has written a new book which describes the problem and offers solutions.
Ferdinand Mount is a conservative and an insider with links to two British prime ministers.
Mount explains how the oligarchs now control our 'formerly democratic' institutions, both local and national.
"One set of oligarchs- the fund managers - approve the size of salaries, bonuses and pension pots for another set of oligarchs - the CEOs, board members and senior managers".
Lord Green, who saw a lot of money go down the plughole when he worked at HSBC, is being touted as the next Governor of the Bank of England.
1. Limit the pay of the oligarchs.
2. Return real power to local government.
3. Return real power to cabinet ministers and members of parliament.
4. Return real power to shareholders.
There can be no return to real democracy while the media is controlled by the spooks.
2. Operation Gladio and similar operations - the CIA's attempts to create fear and tension, in order to keep the oligarchs, and their mafia friends, in power.
3. Government linked pedophile rings, such as in the Dutroux case, which are used to blackmail people, and keep the oligarchs in power.
4. The CIA's reported links to the laundering of drugs money through banks.
