Being the moderate conspiracy theorist that I am (I like to question things on both sides of the spectrum (e.g. no lizard talk please but I equally think the world is ****ed)), I thought I would bring this to people's attention or create a discussion.
About a week ago I stumbled across this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4pHNSPczJn4
which features an apparent whistleblower journalist who has been working under cover for the security company "G4S" who is in charge of the London 2012 Olympics.
The whistleblower highlights a large number of faults and shortfalls, some very damning and some not so bad.
I recognise that I don't know who this guy is, he could be making it all up for all I know, so I took everything with a pinch of salt.
However, what he was saying stuck in my mind and over the last week a lot of it has started to ring true.
Firstly I don't live very far out of London and the whistleblower mentioned a lot of UN troops have been flying into London under the cover of darkness in helicopters over the past month or so. Since watching the video I have noticed an unprecedented number of helicopters flying over my house from about 8pm onwards throughout the night. Now as much as I'd like to say this is very suspicious, I recognise this is probably not very strange considering the Olympics are approaching. So I carry on.
Then I see this news article today saying that the control of the Olympics is now basically falling to the muilitary http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/davidbond...forces_ge.html
Then by chance whilst reading the local news, I see that this same G4S company was going to be one of the companies who will take control of Surrey police force http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-surrey-18813591
Then I started to wonder who on Earth is G4S and why are they failing so badly when they had so much trust given to them? Also why were they going to be given control of part of Surrey police force?? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-18810473
Now the main theory us conspiracists have is that the western governments will introduce martial law in the next couple of years. This means the military and private companies will be given absolute power over the population.
The aforementioned whistleblower has stated he was instructed to prepare for a full evacuation of London and conspiracy theorists have been talking about how this would quite easily tie in with the 'martial law concept' (i.e. a disaster happens, London is evacuated, the power will be willfully given to the military and private security companies and martial law comes that one step closer).
I might have thought nothing of all this had I not watched the whistleblower video a week before all this stuff came out in the news.
So, how does a trusted security company get such a big contract only to completely mess it all up by leaving everything to the last minute? Why have UN troops been drafted about a month before today's news and flown in overnight? Why are Surrey police looking to privatise?
Edit - My mind is open. I can honestly accept I don't know everything and may well be talking a load of ****, but I'd like to hear contradictory points please.
