NRT: The Brethren smear in Sweden as well
The Brethren smear in Sweden as
First New Zealand, now Sweden? A reader has alerted me to a rather interesting twist in the Swedish election: the Exclusive Brethren (known as "Plymouth Brethren" over there) spent millions of crowns on a series of anonymous advertisments in support of the centre-right Alliance for Sweden:
The Brethren have paid for ads in some of Sweden's biggest newspapers, they have done direct marketing in
mailboxes in many parts of Sweden, they have been leafleting and put flyers on cars in many places. Among other things, the flyers say that thousands of Swedes die every year due to mistreatments in hospitals.
Aftonbladet have tracked the company that the Brethren money is channelled through - Nordas LTD - to the backstreets of Knowlsley Industrial Park in Liverpool. One of the founders, Maxwell Kevin Haughton, have been tracked down by Aftonbladet but he refuses to answer to why a British company spends millions on a Swedish election.
Or why they're going to such extreme lengths to hide their involvement...
That's at least five elections the Brethren have involved themselves in, each time using smear tactics combined with fronts and false names to hide their involvement. Is anyone seeing a pattern here...?
