    we have a defacto government, and defacto parties all Davos trained

    highly paid chief executives and heads of the SS being common purpose trained , alongside corrupt on the make judges, & experts

    ignorant, useless MP,s ex-ss workers and selfish public servants who dont serve the public

    result = child trafficking on a massive but hidden by secret courts scale
