McConnell claims that Serco used former U.K. Defence Minister Nicholas Soames to procure the BIOT cable tapping facility which allegedly imputed GLONASS timing signals to conceal the 9/11 insurance frauds and used former Aggreko CEO Rupert Soames to hire the temporary-power workers who ensured the 7/7 and Hurricane Katrina loss adjusters made the right claims.
McConnell alleges that Serco Soames tracking crimes seem to carry the signature of a visit from gambling members of White's Club (founded 1693) or alumni of the Bullingdon Club (founded 1780) whose victims are apparently pre-warned of what assets will be destroyed so that they can arrange insurance claims against Lloyd's Names on the usual proviso of "Eyes Wide Shut".

"Malaysia Airlines MH370: Lloyd's ready to pay insurance claims
Insurer says full cost of tragedy not yet known
The Associated Press Posted: Mar 26, 2014 12:39 PM ET Last Updated: Mar 26, 2014 3:33 PM ETMcConnell believes Serco is a racketeering influenced and corrupt organization (RICO) and all its contracts with the United States and the United Kingdom, including the joint operation of tracking services through the US Air Force Red Switch Network and the undersea-cable tapping facility on British Indian Ocean Territory, should be rescinded with appropriate penalties.
Lloyd's of London, the world's oldest insurance market, says it stands ready to pay out claims for the loss of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370, even as searchers continue to scour the Indian Ocean for wreckage.
It's still far too early to speculate about the cost of the disaster, which will depend in part on what happened to the plane, said Lloyd's Chairman John Nelson. By way of example, he said it took two to three years to sort out what led to the crash of an Air France plane in 2009.

He said the tragedy was compounded by the unusual way in which the disaster unfolded.
"As regrettable as it is, we expect the occasional loss," he said.
Flight MH370 was en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing when it vanished early March 8 with 239 people aboard. Although no wreckage has been found, the Malaysian government said this week that satellite data indicates the plane crashed into the Indian Ocean thousands of miles from land.
Lloyds, a specialist insurance market, on Wednedsay reported pretax profit of 3.2 billion pounds for last year as it benefited from the fact the world suffered fewer natural disasters.
But Nelson said the aviation segment remained a small portion of their overall business.
"We have been insuring airplanes since they were first invented," he said. "This is what we do."

A document filed on the US Federal Register website indicates that aircraft manufacturer Boeing applied to have additional security installed aboard some of its 777 series of airplanes five months ago to prevent onboard hacking of critical computer systems.
Boeing said that it was upgrading the 777-200, 777-300 and 777-300ER series of passenger jet with a new onboard network system.
The concern was that the passenger inflight entertainment system would be connected to critical systems for managing the safety and maintenance of the aircraft.
Passenger setback entertainment systems come with ethernet and USB ports, which would in theory enable access to a hacker to the critical computer systems.
Boeing asked the Federal Aviation Administration to alter its licence to allow it to add a "network extension device" to separate the various systems from each other. That would prevent accidental or deliberate tampering with the critical system. Unauthorised access.
"This proposed data network and design integration may result in security vulnerabilities from intentional or unintentional corruption of data and systems critical to the safety and maintenance of the airplane," the document reads.
"The existing regulations and guidance material did not anticipate this type of system architecture or electronic access to aircraft systems. Furthermore, regulations and current system safety assessment policy and techniques do not address potential security vulnerabilities, which could be caused by unauthorized access to aircraft data buses and servers."
The Federal Aviation Administration approved the licence change and told Boeing that the new system design had to protect against "unauthorized sources internal to the airplane" and "prevent inadvertent and malicious changes to, and all adverse impacts upon, airplane equipment, systems, networks, or other assets required for safe flight and operations".
Boeing also had to make sure that adding the network extension device followed safety guidelines and would not have an impact on the aircraft's flying capability.
Could a problem with the software keeping the plane's computer systems separate have led to accidental tampering with the critical systems?
New Scientist is reporting that the Malaysia Airlines jet sent out at least two bursts of technical data using the Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS) before it disappeared. The useful engine data relates to critical flight systems and avionics.
Although Malaysia Airlines said that the plane made no distress calls, the engine data may hold clues. According to International Civil Aviation Organisation rules, such reports are normally kept secret until air investigators need them.

"The General Lighthouse Authorities of the UK and Ireland have issued a map illustrating the effects of last week's failure in "Russia's GPS" system.
Satellites of the GLONASS network experienced a half-day outage when bad data was uploaded to spacecraft.
The GLA map shows a GLONASS receiver at Harwich giving corrupted position fixes that were off by more than 50km.
The Authorities say the 2 April event is a timely reminder that alternatives to satellite navigation are essential.
The GLA themselves are supporting a system in the UK and Ireland called eLoran, which transmits long-range position, navigation and timing signals from a ground-based radio network.
Its primary use is for ships and others in the maritime sector, but there is a feeling also that eLoran could provide a robust back-up for GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo when it arrives.
Galileo is the European sat-nav system, which is in the process of roll-out.
A Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng) report in 2011 found that the UK was becoming dangerously over-reliant on what are termed Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS).
Use of space-borne positioning and timing data is now widespread, in everything from freight movement to synchronization of computer networks.
The academy found that too few of these applications were able to lean on alternatives should the primary sat-nav signals go down.
Receivers needed to be capable of switching seamlessly between a variety of data sources, the RAEng expert panel argued.
"GLONASS is used by quite a lot of people, actually; the iPhone-5 can pick up its signals," explained Prof David Last, a consultant engineer and past president of the Royal Institute of Navigation.
"What we saw last week was many people being affected by the GLONASS failure even with receivers that were also picking up GPS.
"The lesson that comes out of this is not just that satellite-navigation systems are vulnerable, but that you don't get a protection by simply plugging in a second satellite-navigation system.
"You need something that is different and doesn't share common modes of failure," he told BBC News.”
"White's is a gentleman's club in St James's Street, London. It is the oldest and most exclusive gentleman's club in London. It gained a reputation in the 18th century for both its exclusivity and the often raffish behaviour of its members. Notable current members include Charles, Prince of Wales, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, Conrad Black and Tom Stacey. British Prime Minister David Cameron was formerly a member for fifteen years but resigned in 2008, despite his father Ian Cameron having previously been the club's chairman, over the club's refusal to admit women. White's continues to be a men-only establishment; the only exception being made during a visit by Queen Elizabeth II in 1991. White's is a member of the Association of London Clubs. ..
The club was originally established at 4 Chesterfield Street, off Curzon Street in Mayfair, in 1693 by an Italian immigrant named Francesco Bianco as a hot chocolate emporium under the name Mrs. White's Chocolate House. Tickets were sold to the productions at King's Theatre and Royal Drury Lane Theatre as a side-business. White's quickly made the transition from teashop to exclusive club and in the early 18th century, White's was notorious as a gambling house and those who frequented it were known as "the gamesters of White's." Jonathan Swift referred to White's as the "bane of half the English nobility.”
"Business Insider …. There's A Huge New Snowden Leak — And No One Knows Where It Came From
[UPDATED] HUNTER WALKER

On Tuesday, news site The Register published a story containing explosive "above top secret" information about Britain's surveillance programs, including details of a "clandestine British base tapping undersea cables in the Middle East." Reporter Duncan Campbell, who wrote the story, said it was based on documents "leaked by fugitive NSA sysadmin Edward Snowden" that other news outlets had declined to publish.”
"The SAFE (Southern Africa –Far East- West Africa Submarine cable)
This work was compiled by Saweda Liverpool and Cliff Missen The SAFE (Southern Africa –Far East- West Africa Submarine cable) also known as SAT3/WASC/SAFE, is a telecommunications network designed to link by a fiber-optic cable Europe to South East Asia passing through Spain, Portugal, Senegal, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Benin, Nigeria, Cameroon, Gabon, Angola, South Africa, Mauritius, Reunion, India and Malaysia. The project involves the laying of an undersea optical cable linking all regions concerned. The cable will offer alternative route from east to west and vice versa and with a total of 17 landing points in 15 countries. … The SAFE project was initiated in the early nineties with the objective of linking South Africa to Asia via the Indian Ocean Countries. The first operators to become interested in the project were Telekom SA of South Africa and Telekom Malaysia. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed to that effect in June 1996. In September 1996 Mauritius Telecom became a party to the MoU followed later by France Telecom and VSNL from India.
The SAT3/ WASC/SAFE fibre optic cable from Europe to Malaysia via India will probably be about 28,000 km, the longest cable in the world, with an expandable capacity of 100 gigabytes.
The SAT-3/WASC/SAFE system results from the combination, in 1998, of two projects: SAT-3/WASC (South Africa Telecommunications - West African Submarine Cable) and SAFE (South Africa-Far East). It has 16 landing points in 15 countries from Portugal to Malaysia. From Portugal it runs along the western coast of Africa, serving ten African countries on the way to Cape Town. From there it continues to India and Malaysia, with landing points on Reunion Island and Mauritius. Construction began in December 1999 and was completed in December 2001.
The system contractors were Alcatel Submarine Networks for the SAT-3/WASC segment and TyCom Ltd. For the SAFE link. Cable laying was sourced to specialized cableship operators, including France Telecom Marine, which installed 3,000 kilometers. France Telecom Marine subsidiary Chamarel Marine Services has been responsible for system maintenance since June 2001 for the segment between the latitude of Dakar in the Atlantic Ocean and Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean. This service zone covers 20,000 kilometers, or 70 percent of the total cable length."
