Trade Minister Lord Stephen Green is staying silent over his tenure at HSBC as CEO and subsequently as chairman of the bank despite vigorous calls by Labour party politicians for him to appear before the House of Lords to answer questions about the UK’s biggest bank. Considering he was CEO and Chairman of HSBC during a time when rampant money laundering was admitted by the bank in front of the US Senate, he has much to call for and has not answered the demand for him to make a rare appearance before his fellow Lords.
Described by one Labour party official as “perched on a wooden bench like a naughty school boy” while he waited outside Lord Starthclyde’s office, who is the current leader of the Lords.
Further, he has more to answer for, as he was also chairman of the British Bankers’ Association during the Libor-interest rate crime syndicate dubbed a scandal, who also happens to be an adviser to the UK Treasury on banking matters.
Thus far, Lord Strathclyde has stepped in for his fellow figurehead crony, standing behind Green and rejected Labour’s insistence that he appear before the House of Lords. Further, his limited attendance record was defended (he spoke to the Lords only five times since 2010 since becoming trade minister) by Strathclyde, who said that he travels a lot for criminal bankster trade minister.
The drama deepens, because Strathclyde’s insistence has not shut up Labour ministers from pressing the case:
“. . . in line with the provisions of the ministerial code, and in relation to the impact of the disclosures concerning HSBC on his role as minister of trade, Lord Green should come to parliament to make a statement to the House of Lords before the house rises next week. We would urge you, as the principal government minister in the House of Lords, to make arrangements for such a statement to be given,” said Lady Royall, the current Labour leader within the House of Lords.
“Lord Green certainly has some big questions to answer,” said Ed Milliband, the Labour party leader said. He urged Prime Minister David Cameron to intervene:
“Now if this was a House of Commons minister and the House of Commons was sitting there is no question in my mind that the minister would feel it was right to come to the House of Commons. I hope that the prime minister will encourage him to do that because that would be the right thing for him to do as a minister in the government.”

Well, considering stories like this would never see the light of day because any assault on the criminal banking system would lead to only a few mysterious accidents to you and your person if you were lucky. This leak about HSBC has got so bad that HSBC had no choice but to come clean immediately, and the fallout is now hitting. Right now, it’s being played as a political dispute between Labour and Conservatives in a Eric Holder-esque Mexican standoff with the script saying that it’s politics as usual, ignore the blatant corruption in your face.
At a certain point something has to give, so if the Jesuit slaves want to keep the act going on a number of fronts, I’m most certain they will try to continue the story and the deception as much and as long as possible. However, there comes a point where there no longer will be a script/angle the bought media can play, and only the truth can emerge.
I am quite encouraged to see the breadth of leaks in just these past few weeks. The banking system is literally crumbling before people’s eyes but it’s not being announced on the bought media as of yet. I expect Lord Green to have quite an uncomfortable 2012 from now on, because more and more people throughout the world are now waking up to this bullshit, and they’re not going to let people like “Lord Green” get away with it anymore.
