Meet Serco, the company running the country

I found this article in response to a comment on my blog: re: MH370. Time to name names re: S E R C O. It meant little to me, even after visiting the Abel Danger website, and I still do not understand it – yet, but I will 🙂 This article has fanned my curiosity . . . ~J

Have you heard about the company that controls time? It also runs Britain.

Union Jack flag - Meet Serco, the company running the country

Serco has grown into the lives of Britons amid a growing culture of outsourcing public services

Serco is also a real-life timelord, controlling the National Physical Laboratory in Teddington, which sets the standard for measuring Greenwich Mean Time, length, mass and temperature.

With the country in recession, the outsourcing company is also growing, and quickly. Figures for the half-year, released yesterday, showed Serco has secured a record number of contracts in 2009 so far, worth £4bn, as revenues climbed 31pc to £1.95bn. Pre-tax profits jumped 33pc to £83.4m.

Alongside rivals Capita and Interserve, Serco has grown into the lives of Britons amid a growing culture of outsourcing public services, which began under Margaret Thatcher and has accelerated under Labour. Last December, Serco’s rapid rise propelled it into the FTSE 100.

Chris Hyman, the South African chief executive, expects this trend to continue – no matter which party wins next year’s general election – as the gaping hole in the public finances forces administrators to make cutbacks.

Among the company’s new deals are the contracts to design, build and operate Boris Johnson’s cycle hire scheme for London, and to operate two new prisons at Belmarsh in London, and Maghull in Liverpool.

The deals come on top of Serco’s existing services, which include operating London’s Docklands Light Railway, running the Northern Rail and Merseyrail train networks, providing intelligence to the UK Border Agency, running an Immigration Removal Centre, and being the world’s largest air traffic controller.

Serco also has a six-year contract with Ofsted to run inspections in the Midlands at schools and colleges. In defence, the company is also battling to win the rights to run the Army’s recruitment programme and already helps to train armed forces about using Britain’s fleet of aircraft, such as the Chinook and Apache helicopters.

In fact, without Serco, Britain would struggle to go to war — its tug boats are needed to pull the Royal Navy’s fleet to sea from the three main UK naval bases and it controls the military’s communication system. Serco also, in partnership with Lockheed Martin and Jacobs Engineering, manages the Atomic Weapons Establishment — so its staff also look after the UK’s nuclear warheads.

The breadth and scale of Serco’s work is daunting. It employs 70,000 people, 35,000 in the UK, 85pc-90pc of whom are former civil servants.

However, Hyman insists the public should not be concerned at the private company’s power.

“The state sets policy, we only do implementation and management,” he explains.

“If we started setting policy, I would be worried, my kids would be worried. I don’t know about that, it’s not what I do.

“Power is always controlled by a level playing field of contracts. One’s egos is controlled very nicely because sadly we are not the only people who do this. Competition is a good thing.

“Unlike governments, we have contracts. If we don’t perform, we are fired. That’s the leveller.”

Hyman is very passionate about Serco’s potential in improving the taxpayer’s value for money, as well as the logic behind the company’s growing role in the country, and his responsibilities as it increases in size.

Serco’s success, he claims, can be seen by the improvement they bring to services. Northern Rail, for example, has improved its punctuality rate from 84pc to 90pc under the Serco-NedRailways consortium.

“If people in the public are looking at their tax dollars and saying: ‘Are these guys costing me money or saving me money?’ I think that will be very easy to see, which is why we get the contract. I hope then the public will be comfortable.”

Despite his belief in the quality Serco brings to the public, Hyman is happy to avoid the limelight. “We had a dilemma — what do we do with the Serco name. We are proud of it. We thought we needed billboards at airports and places like that, to be seen with Tiger Woods on. But we worked out very quickly that is not what we are meant to do.

“We are meant to be known by the 5,000 not the 5bn. The people who serve the people need to choose who supplies the service. We are delighted when the public knows who we are, but really, we need to be known by the people who make decisions.”

Hyman and Serco may have anonymity among the public, but its investors certainly recognise it. The interim dividend was raised 25pc to 1.85p yesterday and the shares rose 6pc in response.

Hyman is running the country and making money in the process. Quite a contrast to Gordon Brown and the UK’s mounting net debt of £800bn.

    McConnell has been directed by Abel Danger Global to offer expert witness services to plaintiffs who decide to sue for damages in re Serco’s apparent use of Aggreko Crossed Keys power generators in the bottom-up demolition of WTC Building #7 on 9/11 with incendiary bombs.

    Plum City – ( United States Marine Field McConnell has linked Chuck Schumer and Barack Obama White House meeting on the night of 9/11/2012 when the late U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens was raped and murdered in Benghazi, to Serco director Maureen Baginski’s Crossed Keys hit team which allegedly stopped Stevens from exposing a child-porn blackmail ring run over the Red Switch Network by the White House Communications Agency.

      Thanks, Scully! I’ve posted this info . . . it’s dreadful info, and I’ve known about it for a long time. Maybe now is the time that people are getting ready to be able to handle it. Hugs, ~Jean

  5. Thank you Jean I have tried to get Drakes attention on Abel Danger after they first started uncovering SERCO. Field Mcconnell is in Abel Danger and his sister works with SERCO Christine Marcy that is how they came to find out who all is envolved with SERCO, along with our own President, his wife, Clintons and a lot of the hollywood. I hope people will help get this company exposed, for what it really is. Again thank you.

      I’ve followed Abel Danger for quite a while. Several years ago, I had a personal connection with David, but our paths were different. I think there work is great, but people are just now catching up with it, maybe because it shows events and history, and ‘real’ truth in a light that is almost too terrible to comprehend. . . To find out about SERCO was like a gift from the Gods . . . just one more huge piece of the puzzle dropping into place . . . Hugs, ~Jean

  6. For Serco, read British East India Company. Same global mass commercial monopolies, and private armies.

    This article makes out that Serco are a British corporation but their evil influence is truly global. For example they are also involved with the training of US Marines and air-trafic control around the world.

    It is now a reality that some corporations are more powerful than nation states due to the number and the sensitivity of the “pies” that they now have their grubby fingers in. They acquire more and more government contracts thanks to the treasonous puppets installed into influential positions by the banking elite. This is just one of the methods that the Bankers are using to steal countries and sovereignty from the people.

    Serco are currently under investigation in the UK by the Serious Fraud Office, however, I fully expect that no prosecutions will result from the SFO’s so-called “investigations” and Serco will continue their march towards global domination unhindered.

    Serco and other government contractors like them, need to be watched VERY closely indeed as much of what they do passes under the radar of the general public. If you see Serco involved with anything you can suspect that what is going on is not in the best interests of the people and is part of a longer term nefarious agenda. BEWARE OF SERCO!

    Taken from David Icke dot com No surprises here!!!!

    Almost all big corps have the same core group of funds managing companies as the major institutional shareholders.

    Usually its Blackrock, Vanguard, State Street and Fidelity.

    You can use morningstar (lucifer lol) to find this, whether it be goldman sachs, monsanto, raytheon, halliburton etc. you see the same. does the USA based companies…same deal, same funds holders appear everywhere.

    If you trace/research the other companies listed on sercos shareholders that arent those four, you will find some or all of those four holding them

    Now who holds those funds managers, tracing back to individuals and their companies, that information cant be found.

    Because companies like Vanguard have over 500 funds/investment subsidiaries listed, and they are not classed as ‘stock’ and they have no obligation to reveal.

    I would say this is how the richest people on the planet hide or disguise their holdings so that their own names dont come up on major shareholders lists.

    Heres just one example though of conflict of interest……pe=&as_rights=

    remember that vanguard is a top institutional holder of military industrial companies and the big banks.

    .Vanguard was also highly involved in 911 as well. Just sayin’

    Follow the $$$$$$$$,,,,,,,,,,…………..
