    Libor scandal: Former City trader Tom Hayes gets 14 years for rigging rates !

    One thing you can rely on these days in the UK is a total lack of any natural legal justice. A good example is this case that ended today. A former City trader received 14 years for rigging Libor rates. The big guys at the Banks leave with multi million pay off's, Knighthoods and eye watering pensions when they fail. The small guy gets 14 years. OK, he has been found guilty of a serious offence, but put this into perspective.

    A man can batter a women senseless leaving her with with broken bones and mentally and physically scarred for life and get months in prison, a man can rape a child and not get 14 years.

    As always, one rule for the rich and powerful and a totally different ball game for the poor. I hope this guy appeals and gets a big sentence reduction, two or three years in prison would have still sent shock waves to those who fiddle the books to line their own pockets. If you believe the Bosses of the Banks did not know this sort of malarkey was going on, then you probably believe the moon is made of cheese.

    One thing is for sure Tom Hayes has not received justice.

For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !

    This is called going for the low hanging fruit. You mentioned paedophiles. A common occurrence is down loaders and sharer's of grim images of children getting imprisoned. They are wack jobs and mentally ill in my opinion, they are the weak of mind, and in some ways to be pitied. Don't get me wrong, if people did not look for this stuff and want it, it would never be of interest and out there. One of the few big downsides of the internet. I am sure if Governments really wanted to rid the internet of this grim stuff it could be done. But too many of the rich and powerful are into this horror.

    But almost every day we hear of gross abuse of children linked to the very top of the UK establishment. Today the ex. Prime Minister Ted Heath is being talked about, but none of the big guys ever get their collars felt. No, they get protected and allowed to die before the truth leaks out. And one thing is for sure, we will never know the half of it.

    Well the big banks are good at choosing scapegoats, that's for sure.

    Re the disgusting images on the internet. It's addictive like anything else, and again there's scapegoats named and shamed, when the big guys get away with it. It should be clamped down on to protect not only the children but also the weaker members of society who wouldn't be drawn into that world if all of that stuff wasn't so readily accessible.

    As you say Eddie the rich, big guys get protected until they die. Disgraceful.
