In light of my post Smoking Gun some have suggested that my claims of MI5 involvement in protecting HSBC are exaggerated or paranoid.
This appeared recently from Corporate Crime Reporter:
This article appeared in Private Eye in October 2013, at the same time that they also investigated but spiked my fraud disclosures. The head of MI5 Jonathan Evans, now an HSBC director, was knighted in the New Years honours list 2014. He was given a life peerage in October last year after he had arranged for his fellow HSBC director, Rona Fairhead, to take the top job at the BBC, who remain silent on the HSBC fraud.
