Videos for web posterity

The Challenging the Recession event in the Grand Committee Room of the House of Commons united a panel of seven speakers. Thanks to the gift sponsorship by Brad Meyer of Collaboration, we can offer these video recordings:

– the organiser Sabine K McNeill who has, so far, found it impossible to get funding for her company 3D Metrics. The probability is 2.5% according to the founder of the first Venture Capital fund for women.

– the co-founder Lord Sudeley whose greatgrandfather was  bankrupted by Lloyds 100 years ago and whose grandmother’s estate was sold by Lloyds against the interest of the heirs

Derek Wyatt MP who is advocating the internet as a positive solution

Austin Mitchell MP, avid advocator of monetary reform. Three days before the event, Austin tabled Early Day Motion (EDM) 1297: Enforcement of Bank of England Act 1694:

That this House, observing that the intention of the founding Act of the Bank of England in 1694 was `that their Majesties’ subjects may not be oppressed by the said corporation’, notes that those subjects have been seriously oppressed by the Bank’s failure to control the greed, risk-taking and speculation of the banking system over which it presides; and therefore suggests that this oppression should be dealt with as the Act provides by fines three times the value of the abusive trading.

Since Austin travels to the US this week, David Taylor MP will try to turn the message of the EDM into an Amendment to the Budget. As briefing, we pointed David Taylor MP to these banking issues – the ways of oppressing Her Majesty’s subjects.

– Michael Grimsdale ACIB, a former Lloyds Bank Manager who is helping victims of legal and financial exploitation

– Abdallah Homouda, a British / Egyptian journalist and TV commentator
