A WIND OF CHANGE
DRAFT OF A CONVERSATION BETWEEN UK DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC PROSECUTIONS ALISON SAUNDERS AND NEWLY APPOINTED AMERICAN ATTORNEY GENERAL LORETTA LYNCH DOWNLOADED FROM THE GCHQ MONITORING SYSTEM
I'm calling, Loretta, to see if you might be able to do me a favour. Quite a big favour, actually
Ask away. If the sisterhood doesn't give each other a helping hand, who will. Do you know, by the way, that the American Constitution regarding the creation of my office refers to "he" throughout
I'm not at all surprised. Anyhow, you're doing a great job on this FIFA thing and I wondered if you could do something similar with our Overseas Aid system. Do you know how it works?
Sure do. You've been coughing up billions for donkey's years and much of it has been creamed off in the countries you deal with
Right Loretta. Do you think you could nail a few of the rascals who have ripped us off?
Could do, but if you've got evidence, why don't you take action?
It is too politically loaded but I've got evidence
Does it involve wire fraud in the States?
Yes, it does
OK Alison. Send me some stuff and I'll get the FBI on the case. If a single dollar has been laundered through any of our banks, we'll get 'em on racketeering. And Alison, you can do me a favour in return
What's that Loretta?
Can you explain the off side rule in football?
THE UK PAYS 7% OF GDP INTO OVERSEAS AID. THIS WILL BE £12.4 BILLION THIS YEAR, EQUAL TO OVER £500 FROM EVERY HOUSEHOLD. NO ONE KNOWS HOW MUCH HAS BEEN FILCHED BUT IT HAS HELPED CREATE HUNDREDS IF NOT THOUSANDS OF MULTI MILLIONAIRS IN AFRICA ALONE. THE UK GOVERNMENT HAS NEVER TAKEN ANY LEGAL ACTION AGAINST ANYONE
