news review with Councillor for Westbury-On-Trym and Deputy Mayor of Bristol Geoff Gollop. Geoff's recent visit to Cuba and Geoff explores the pros and cons of life under communist Fidel Castro. After Libor, Payment Protection Insurance (PPI) fraud and Interest Rate Swap fraud this week we have 'mis-sold' fraudulent credit card insurance (CPP), more fraud from the banks; July 2013 figures out and deficit is going up, even with all the cuts, and an in-depth clear discussion on how this has impacted the bottom line, the national debt approaches £1.2tn and how all this impacts the real rather than the casino economy; Soldier 'N's letter at former soldier Danny Nightingale's court Marshal claiming the SAS were involved in the assassination of Princess Diana in 1997. Danny Nightingale was keeping a firearm and ammunition but has has his former housemate 'Soldier N' simply lost the plot? Petition launched, aimed at Bristol Mayor George Ferguson, to close all strip clubs and lapdancing clubs in Bristol; Guardian: NSA pays £100m in secret funding for GCHQ. Secret payments revealed in leaks by Edward Snowden. GCHQ expected to 'pull its weight' for Americans. Weaker regulation of British spies 'a selling point' for NSA. Investigative journalist Duncan Campbell on his prosecution by the secret state and GCHQ in the 1980s and his BBC Zircon film which showed GCHQ had been hiding expenditure from parliament. He suggests too that Michael Miranda's arrest under Schedule 7 of the Terrorism Act was nothing whatever to do with terrorism, that GCHQ are afraid of public and parliamentary scrutiny, they might be caught out bluffing and deceiving parliament that they needed £1bn of public money when they didn't at all, so is history repeating itself?
