Britain has a bad record with regard to Egypt – we’ve used and abused their people for decades. MI6 organised coup attempts, we invaded over the Suez canal and planned many attempts on Nasser’s life rather than accept the will of the Egyptian people.
What many people don’t know is that we also conspired with the Muslim Brotherhood many times – even though the Foreign Office knew the Brotherhood were no friends of the English, but because they calculated the Muslims were the lesser of two evils.
Now the Guardian has revealed much of the money stolen by Mubarak and his family and cronies was laundered through the City of London. And to add insult to injury, we’ve let them move it around with impunity – enabling the criminals to hide vast amounts from Egyptian investigators.
Also read Secret Affairs by Mark Curtis. Curtis’s book shows how the UK conspired with some of the most unsavoury regimes such as the Saudi Arabians and most feared terrorist groups in the world.
It’s almost funny the way the British state talks about law and order when they’ve had absolutely no respect for anything but power and riches for the past few centuries.
They have no shame…
