London - (Ass Mess): Police are investigating the role of ex-BP CEO and Corrupt Bastards Club grandee Lord Browne in the gagging of the Serious Fraud Office's probe into arms manufacturer/dealer BAE Systems which is the UK's corruption flagship par excellence.
A statement today said that the top suspect Jonathan Powell, who is UK Prime Monster Tony Blair's chief of staff, acted as a tool for Browne in the scam that saw BAE run a massive patronage slush fund to woo the Saudis into singing up to the £40 billion Al Yamamah arms deal.
Another accomplice of Browne's is Lord Powell, brother of Jonathan, and a highly paid consultant to BAE Systems.
Months of wrangling, pleading, coaxing, schmoozing and sycophantic back-patting of the PM resulted with Blair declaring that it would not be 'in the national interest' to prosecure BAE Systems for fraud, embezzlement, bribery, corruption, wide-scale graft and other charges that mirror those that top VECO executives have been indicted over in Alaska last week.
The UK climbdown took place despite the Fraud Office announcing that it had enough evidence to bang up the top culprits away for a grand total of over 500 years.
Meanwhile, during a parallel Downing Street police probe into the cash-for-peerages scam, investigators noticed a pattern whereby so-called captains of industry, wealthy businessmen and City fat-cats who had inexplicably grown rich during the Labour Party years could not balance their new found wealth with actual proof of how it was earned.
Many of these nouveau riche arrivistes made 'loans' to Labour and were subsequently ennobled as 'working peers' in the House of Lords.
While trawling through Downing Street e-mails in the peerages enquiry the Powell/Browne/Powell BAE Systems conspiracy was unearthed.
Correspondence uncovered showed that Lord Browne acted on behalf of US Corrupt Bastards Club members to pressure Blair to close down the BAE corruption probe using the Powell brothers to do hiw distry work.
Browne has now been outed as a serial liar after UK Law Lords said his testimony was perjured in a gagging attempt over his private life shenanings with assorted rent boys.
He was booted off oil giant BP and forced to resign from financial giant Golfman Sax.
One of the key deal breakers in BAE's wooing of the £40 billion Saudi deal was the supply of juvenile sex workers to the Saudi string pullers negotiating to buy British warcraft hardware in exchange for cheap crude and bags of $$$$$s.
Browne had previously strenuously denied that either he or his rent boy partners were ever involved in the supply side of economics in this procurement arrangement.
The Downing Street e-mails may now suggest something completely different.
Lord Levy, 59, is attempting to flee the country.
