CAMDEN MARKET FIRE!
TIMING! "The incident came ahead of shares in Market Tech, whose majority shareholder is Playtech founder Sagi, being cancelled from trading on London’s main market tomorrow."

Hot on the heels of the Grenfell Tower Block disaster a huge fire in Camden only a stone's throw away. London, it would appear, is going up in flames. It is the second large fire to ravage the immediate area. In February 2008 the Camden Canal Market was destroyed by an inferno that wrecked several local landmarks and put the waterside market out of action for 15 months.

The property folio of the Camden Locks area was the hands of a company called "Market Tech", in which Israeli Teddy Sagi held 70% of the shares. A
s of March 2015, Sagi owned the four most important of the six sections of the market.

Another of his wholly owned companies "Lab Tech" made an offer for the remaining shares -providing roughly 35% increase in value to shareholders - and the Directors recommended acceptance in April. The new company is now private and does not have to publish its financial details.

Meanwhile Market Tech de-listed from the London Stock Exchange just a day or two after the fire.

In 1999 Sagi received an 18-month prison sentence in for "grave deceit, bribery and insider trading", after being found guilty of manipulating bond prices in Israel in 1994. (Source Wikipedia)

"Investigators were today trying to establish the cause of the massive blaze which tore through Camden Lock Market like “a scene from a disaster movie”.
"More than 70 firefighters battled the fire which took hold in the famous tourist attraction shortly before midnight yesterday. 
"Witnesses said flames quickly spread across several buildings in the historic complex of independent boutiques, restaurants and market stalls on Chalk Farm Road.
"James Brown, 19, said: “It was like a disaster movie happening in front of your eyes, I have never seen anything like it. I was sweating I was so close to the flames.”
"Besides the stake in Market Tech, Mr Sagi is the founder of  gaming and financial derivative trading technology company Playtech, has also launched online payment service provider SafeCharge and web distribution business Crossrider, and owns Holborn Links Estate, which encompasses London's Sicilian Avenue."

"Camden market landlord Market Tech on Monday insisted it was business as usual for traders despite a huge fire breaking out at the site, as the company prepares to delist from the stock exchange. 
"The Camden markets owner, backed by Israeli billionaire Teddy Sagi, said it is working with the emergency services to investigate the cause of the blaze, which was brought under control by 2.50am, at a building adjacent to the market hall area of Camden Lock Market.
"A spokesman said only a small section of the area will be closed off as a precaution.
"He added: “The rest of Camden Lock Market and the wider area... will be fully open and operating and welcoming visitors and customers as usual today.”
"The incident came ahead of shares in Market Tech, whose majority shareholder is Playtech founder Sagi, being cancelled from trading on London’s main market tomorrow.
"The firm is being taken over by the entrepreneur’s LabTech Investments, which is acquiring the shares it does not already own for 188p a share. 
"The shares were flat at 187.25p earlier, valuing the business at £884 million."

Well I never! 15.11.16 - 

"The entity we call Camden Market is actually several markets in the area. In 2014, Market Tech began buying four of the sites – Camden Lock, Canal Market, Stables Market and Union Street Market – uniting them under a single owner for the first time. Market Tech, owned by Israeli businessman Teddy Sagi, has bought other Camden sites, including a stretch of high street, the Barfly club and the Open University building. Sagi made his fortune through online gambling company Playtech, which he founded in 1999 following a short spell in an Israeli prison for manipulating bond prices."

Firefighters in Devon and Somerset are being trained to give emergency medical treatment to victims of a terror attack, the BBC can reveal.

Their role would be to provide back up to paramedics at the scene.

A team of 42 volunteers have been taught how to deal with bullet wounds, shock, and injuries caused from being hit by fast-moving vehicles. They’re also being given bulletproof vests and helmets, and have been trained in terrorist tactics with police firearms teams.

The move is in response to the changing terror threat and marauding attacks using vehicles and guns, such as those carried out in Paris and at London Bridge.

Firefighters from Devon and Somerset are getting ready for what they're describing as the "biggest fire exercise ever to be held in Devon".

About 150 firefighters will be involved in tackling a simulated fire at the now empty Civic Centre in Plymouth on Sunday.

The drill is designed to look at how crews tackle fires in the increasing numbers of high rise buildings in the region.

Dummies have already been placed around the building in preparation.

On today's news, a South West 'emergency exercise' with fire and ambulance personnel dealing with multiple crisis actors pretending (very convincingly) to be injured. However it should be noted how these people see it necessary to wear protective uniforms including weapon grade helmets! Yet further evidence of the mind conditioning nonsense being promoted by our so-called "democratic" government for hugely remote risk. (Unless of course they have something planned for the SW just in case we are feeling left out of the drama) Bristol, Temple Meads, I note was cordoned off so I suppose the roll-out is getting closer!

  2. Just one more step down the road to totalitarian government. Apparently we now need ambulance and fire personnel to be dressed like para-military people yet local government controllers see no danger in this!!!! Of course its all just precautionary training. Meanwhile government allows hugely dangerous renovation of tower blocks and a fire service completely impotent to deal with the consequences! WAKE UP PEOPLE TO WHAT SECRETIVE ELEMENTS OF GOVERNMENT IS TRYING TO DO TO OUR CIVIC SOCIETY.
