#1405 Marine Links Ian Cameron to Front-Running Serco Clock and BBC Packet-Switched Brighton Bomb

Plum City – (AbelDanger.net). United States Marine Field McConnell has linked the late and former Panmure Gordon partner Ian Cameron to a Serco/NPL development of a front running clock, allegedly used by BBC Crimewatch crews to trigger a packet-switched bomb in Brighton’s Grand Hotel on 12 October 1984 in an attempted assassination of then U.K. Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher.

McConnell suggests that Ian Cameron hired the late Donald Davies – inventor of packet switching at the National Physical Laboratory – to work for the British Bankers’ Association on the development of the Serco/NPL front-running clock to conceal the BBA’s packet-switching Libor frauds.

McConnell further alleges that Cameron conspired with the BBC Crimewatch crews and Donald Davies to assassinate Margaret Thatcher at the Grand Hotel after she had threatened to expose or to impede the BBA’s front-running Libor scam.

 Margaret Thatcher - Brighton Bombing

“The Brighton hotel bombing occurred on 12 October 1984 at the Grand Hotel in BrightonEngland. A long-delay time bombwas planted in the hotel by Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA) member Patrick Magee, with the intention of assassinating Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and her cabinet, who were staying at the hotel for the Conservative Party conference.[1] Although Thatcher narrowly escaped injury, five people were killed (including two high-profile members of the Conservative Party) and 31 were injured.


Patrick Magee had stayed in the hotel under the false name of Roy Walsh during the weekend of 14–17 September 1984. During his stay, he planted the bomb (fitted with a long-delay timer made from video recorder components) under the bath in his room, number 629.[1] IRA mole Sean O'Callaghan claimed that 20 lb (9 kg) of Frangex (gelignite) was used.[2]

The bombing

The bomb detonated at 2:54 a.m. on 12 October. The mid-section of the building collapsed into the basement, leaving a gaping hole in the hotel's façade. Firemen said that many lives were likely saved because the well-built Victorian hotel remained standing.[3] Margaret Thatcher was still awake at the time, working on her conference speech for the next day in her suite. The blast badly damaged her bathroom, but left her sitting room and bedroom unscathed. Both she and her husband Denis escaped injury. She changed her clothes and was led out through the wreckage along with her husband and Cynthia Crawford (her friend and aide) and driven to Brighton police station.

At about 4:00 a.m., as she left the police station, she gave an impromptu interview to the BBC's John Cole, saying that the conference would go on as usual. Alistair McAlpine persuaded Marks & Spencer to open early at 8:00 a.m. so those who had lost their clothes in the bombing could get new ones. Thatcher went from the conference to visit the injured at the Royal Sussex County Hospital.”
“[Three generations of front running Camerons!] At the heart of a stunning 50-acre estate by the banks of the river Deveron in Aberdeenshire sits the granite-clad Victorian mansion Blairmore House, home to four generations of the prime minister's family.

Built in the 1880s by Alex Geddes, a Scotsman who became known as the Chicago grain king, the estate holds decades of David Cameron's family history. The union of the Geddes and Cameron families was celebrated in the grounds in 1905, and the nearby chapel remembers forebears killed in the first world war. David's father, Ian Donald Cameron, was born in 1932 at Blairmore House. But soon after that, the old place was sold.

So it was perhaps for sentimental reasons that the offshore fund Ian Cameron helped to establish in the tax haven of Panama shares the name. Blairmore Holdings Inc, just like Blairmore House, is a monument to wealth obtained overseas.

Valued today at £25m, the Panamanian fund was established in 1982 while David was still at Eton, the school that his father attended. At the time, Ian Cameron still worked at Panmure Gordon, the City broking firm at which three generations of the family were senior partners.

The family's banking history goes back even further, to the 1860s, when Sir Ewen Cameron joined the industry. He later helped the Rothschild banking dynasty sell war bonds during the Russo-Japanese war. While at Panmure Gordon, Ian was a bond specialist too [and alleged architect of the front-running Libor scam with Nicholas Clegg Senior], showing determination to overcome his physical disability – he was born with deformed legs – and make partner at the firm by the age of 30.”
“Donald Watts Davies, CBE FRS[1] (7 June 1924 – 28 May 2000) was a Welsh computer scientist who was one of the inventors of packet switched computer networking, originator of the term,[2] and the Internet itself can be traced directly back to his work.


Davies was born in Treorchy in the Rhondda Valley, Wales. His father, a clerk at a coalmine, died a few months later, and his mother took Donald and his twin sister back to her home town of Portsmouth, where he went to school.[4]

He received a BSc degree in physics (1943) at Imperial College London, and then joined the war effort working as an assistant to Klaus Fuchs[4] on the nuclear weapons Tube Alloys project at Birmingham University.[5] He then returned to Imperial taking a first class degree in mathematics (1947); he was also awarded the Lubbock memorial Prize as the outstanding mathematician of his year.In 1955, he married Diane Burton; they had a daughter and two sons.[6]

From 1947, he worked at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) where Alan Turing was designing the Automatic Computing Engine (ACE) computer. It is said that Davies spotted mistakes in Turing's seminal 1936 paper On Computable Numbers, much to Turing's annoyance. These were perhaps some of the first "programming" errors in existence, even if they were for a theoretical computer, the universal Turing machine. The ACE project was overambitious and foundered, leading to Turing's departure.[5]Davies took the project over and concentrated on delivering the less ambitious Pilot ACE computer, which first worked in May 1950. A commercial spin-off, DEUCE was manufactured by English Electric Computers and became one of the best-selling machines of the 1950s.[5]

Davies then worked for a while on applications such as traffic simulation and machine translation. In the early 1960s, he worked on Government technology initiatives designed to stimulate the British computer industry.

In 1966 he returned to the NPL at Teddington just outside London, where he headed and transformed its computing activity. He became interested in data communications following a visit to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he saw that a significant problem with the new time-sharing computer systems was the cost of keeping a phone connection open for each user.[5] He first presented his ideas on packet switching at a conference in Edinburgh on 5 August 1968.[7]

In 1970, Davies helped build a packet switched network called the Mark I to serve the NPL in the UK. It was replaced with the Mark II in 1973, and remained in operation until 1986, influencing other research in the UK and Europe.[8] Larry Roberts of the Advanced Research Projects Agency in the United States became aware of the idea, and built it into the ARPANET, which evolved into the Internet.[5]

Davies relinquished his management responsibilities in 1979 to return to research. He became particularly interested in computer network securityHe retired from the NPL in 1984, becoming a security consultant to the banking industry. [allegedly hired by Ian Cameron to develop the Serco front running clock to support the British Bankers’ Association Libor frauds] Davies was appointed a Distinguished Fellow of the British Computer Society in 1975, a CBE in 1983 and a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1987. In 2012, Davies was inducted into the Internet Hall of Fame by the Internet Society.”
