This blog unlike many is a pleasure to write as it tells of the new hope in the upcoming generations.


Aberdeen  Christmas Lights Union Street.

    The name Amira Willighagen may not be familiar to you unless you already one of her many fans.   She is a young girl who lives in Holland and at the age of nine won the HOLLANDS GOT TALENT contest ..  As if her tender age  was not enough of a surprise win the fact that in 2013  she won sining OPERA!, makes it doubly amazing, but not once you hear this new talent.

     Amira has a unique voice not just that it has an amazing range but that she has such a strong and accurate pitched voice.   Her first appearance guaranteed her a place and she in the end won the final which took her across the Atlantic to the USA and Las Vegas.   Her concerts there wowed audineces  and began her career.   She was heard on you tube by no less than  Andre Rieu and his orchestra who were so amazed and impressed thjat they offered her a master class.  Something she eagerly accepted some months later she appeared on stage with Andre and the full Orchestra  and brought the audience to their feet for a standing ovation.

The other day I had the privilege to interview this bright as a button youngster now 11 + soon to be going to High School.   She was a bright and polite girl.  she answered my questions with eagerness and energy.

I wondered what it was like at school for her once she returned as something of a celebrity.   My school mates were excited and thought it was great as did the staff of her school.  It is somewhat fun when she has to have a little time off and they ask where she may be going. She replies some exotic location.  managing life as a school pupil and star can be difficult but her Father Gerrit Willighagen has the task of managing the  new found star and keeps things as balanced as possible.   from what I saw of Amira in the interview he is doing well.

She has been on stage with a range of stars in the last few years and when i asked her about this she clearly relishes the experience and enjoys it very much.  She also is keen to learn from their expereience too. They have all been very nice and helpful was the impression I gained.  She has a strong voice and one that is not phased singing with adults who are more than three times her age at times.  She loves opera songs and her favourite seems to be Mio Babbio Caro the song which rocketed her towards victory in Hollands got Talent.   before she is 12 years old Amira has made no less than two CDs the latest one a Christmas one you can get an idea of her  talent at this link  AMIRA MERRY CHRISTMAS



     The travelling for such a young girl I thought she might find difficult or tiring, but like the bubbly personality she is she told me that she actually enjoys travelling to different countries next year she will be in USA and in Hong Kong.  Earlier this year she was in Venice and sang in a beautiful and very big Church as she described it.  it was interesting travelling on the Canals in Gondola with her brother Fincent, who is a talented violinist and a they get on well.   As well as stage appearances she has done interviews on various Television channels in Holland and other mainland European channels.   Wherever she goes she is a bright light and makes people who meet her enjoy her company.


      Another travelling companion is her mascot called   Schilpaddie bounz This is a very cute soft toy turtle! and where Amira goes so does Schilpaddie Bounz.  Possibly the best travelled soft toy.  It has even been in the Vatican with Amira .     She thinks it is a great mascot.  I agree too.  Even though im not good at pronouncing the name!!

   Like many youngsters she has an enjoyment of sport and games.  She likes Gymnastics especially and is learning backflips.  although she has a busy schedule she still has over the years time to win athletics events too and now is doing gymnastics when she can.  Her favourite school subject is Mathematics which is perhaps not surprising as many talented musicians are good mathematically too.  She admitted she has other subjects she likes.   Amira is an easily likeable soul.  She is also a caring one for her tender age.   She has built a playground in South Africa for youngsters much less fortunate than herself.  The playground equipment put there as one of her first projects from income off the first CD.   She hopes to create more play grounds too in the coming year she told me with a broad smile.

One thing im certain is that Amira will be a star of the Opera scene of the future if that is what she chooses to do or perhaps win an olympic gold in Gymnastics who knows but I hope she keeps singing whatever the future brings her.  She has a big following in the world already and she has a facebook page for fans to keep up to day with all that is happening.  You can find it at FACEBOOK PAGE

At this Christmas time I wish her God’s blessings and a Healthy and Happy New Year!  Thanks for the interview Amira!








TIS the season or so the jingles go and the commercial bandwagon is at full throttle getting us to go out and buy that  yet another present un needed often and oft recycled or returned afterwords.  However the good will of the season is perhaps the time to capitalise on to defeat those who have blood money on their hands dripping from the carnage in Syria and the middle east not to mention the other trouble spots.  Since it is Christmas it is worth focusing on  Christianity and its state in the west; or north as it is called.


The Middle east the cradle of all the troubles and the beginning locus for Christianity in Palestine! , as it was  then .   The Christians in Iraq and Syria are under attack and mortal danger yet we only seem interested in self defence? not proactive to save those attacked.  The danger in kneejerk reactions such as that by David Cameron is they play into the hands of the evil.   Indeed he should be in Vienna at the talks what arrogance he has to suggest the leader of a sovereign nation should be replace maybe he should be replace by Boris!!!, it is arrogance and nothing other than the regime change pogramme of those behind the scenes who want to control the world.

the man the new world order people hate.

the man the new world order people hate.

We should be concentrating on the good will we could generate in talks not bombs.  Who created the Mujahidin who morphed to  al qaeda who morphed to al nussra and now the title ISIS.. Cameron should learn there is no such thing as a good terrorist they are CRIMINALS MURDERS AND WORSE.    The media also should treat them a ssuch not giving them any oxygen at all. blanket no coverage of atrocities unless reported as mass murder by!!!

The media of course is in the hands of those who like to control the politics of our world.  So I give every citizen of this world it is one planet, a challenge this season of good will.  Start to put real pressure on your political represtentatives to TALK not to cause war.  Bombs by thier nature are indiscriminate they cannot ever be accurate what is euphamistically called collateral damage are your brothers and sisters.  the children deserve better.   Any politician  who suggests bombing invited bombing there is not one rule for one and another for another.   Prior to 9/11 we had an order of sorts far from perfect, but intervention was not on the table.  nor was regime change, what arrogance and considering the dictators sponsored by the USA s track record Guatemala being the worst., many decades ago, we can hardly talk.   Democracy grows in a country ours took at least 1000 years before real order and even now only in the last century did we give women half the population at least the vote!   Who are we to decide what system is best for others fix ours first!  The last election is good example less people voted for SNP but they have over 50 MPs UKIP got considerably more share of vote but few if any MPs.

a devastated street in Libya after NATO bombing how did that protect innocent civilians?

crazy certainly not perfect democracy now that democracy grew out of Christianity and its Moral compass of freedom and care.   The moral compass has all but disapppeared in the corridors of power as Political Correctness, a trojan horse if ever there was one, is the blunt instrument in the west. Among all religions Christianity is being quietly strangled.  Time now to have goodwill and a braveheart.   We need to  back what we believe and stand up and be counted there are times we need to do that. too often others suggest we turn the other cheek.  This is not that time.

By all means do all the good things and be proud of your religion however, flawed we all are. we all need forgiveness from God, but there is a judgement to come beyond this world and some arrogant people are going to get a shock for eternity and infinity.








We get selective biased news indtead of the ‘warts and all’ version. Journslists need tobe societys watchdog not a pet.












A s  christmas approaches it is good time to send some reading material to friends   allow me this week to suggest two titles.

cover is a suitably Scottish saint. St. Margaret of Scotland .

This is an interesting look at a large number of  Saints and could well have been titled  MIRACLES AND MURDER!


The second title is an excellent story of hidden treasure and where Dan Browns stories left off this tale could well take over as Roslin Chapel features as well as much information on Leith Port and its history connected to the Knights Templar!

The book is Search for Templar Gold.  by Alexander Wilson.

The author of this sadly died before he could conclude his sequel!



If you like scottish based novels this is one for you in the da vinci code style.






O K.  I guess not too many will have heard of this political party.  However, before it hardly got

off the ground the security services were trying to destroy it from within.   Yes you read correctly agent provocateurs came in wolves dressed as sheep  and did their utmost to unseat the very founders of the party no less.  Now seven years later it is still in survival mode.  The President of  the SDA lives in Vienna and has a wealth of international legal knowledge as well as much knowlege of the Scottish political scene over decades.    His name is Jim Wilkie and was awarded the highest honour for his work fof the Austrian Government.


come back for the story of political intrigue in Scotland while and before the referendum in the meantime look out for this logo

In the wake of the Global financial downturn and collapse in the west of gigantic proportions the governments and people seemed to continue with more of the same! Bankers still raked in millions in bonuses and more people lost thier homes and livlihoods and in us ended up on the street and at the food bank to feed thier families.

However in the parallel world o fthe Middle eastern and sharia Banking world there was  far less problems. Indeed many see that this type of banking underpinned by ethical banking practice became more attractive.  In the world there are many people seeking to develop this type of finance on a far wider global scale.


In Scotland’s Capital the first Global Ethical Finance Forum took place in the Balmoral Hotel, Edinburgh,  with a lrarge number of delegates from around the world and a high quality panel of speakers.   Perhaps it is time for the Kirk in Scotland to kick start a Christian pressure on the Government and Banks to look to how thier unregulated greed ended in disaster and a new culture for the future can be grown.  Save for Iceland that did not bail out the banks, but indeed imprisoned some of them for what was at best negligent practice and at worst criminal gambling with other peoples money.

The two day forum covered a range of topics from looking at Holistic views of risk taking to mainstreaming green bond  Sukuk to Ethics in Finance on the second day.

The keynote speakers included  Jaseem Ahmed who is secretary General of the Islamic Financial Services Board (IFSB for short)   who highlighted the need for the system to be more comprehensive and designed for the goood of all.

The Emir of Kano, Nigeria was another keynote speaker.

Among the list or well qualified speakers were:

Keith Brown MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Infrastructure, Investment & Cities, Scottish Government
Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Dr. Zeti Akhtar Aziz, Governor Bank Negara Malaysia
His Royal Highness Emir Muhammad Sanusi II
Emir of Kano
Fergus Moffatt, Programme Director and Head of Public Policy, UKSIF
Ulrika Hasselgren, Chief Executive Officer and Founding Partner, Ethix SRI Advisors
Martina Macpherson, Managing Partner, SI Partners – oekom research, UK
Bruce Davis
, Joint Managing Director, Abundance Generation

Will Martindale, Head of Policy, UN PRI
Marcos Eguiguren, Executive Director at The Global Alliance for Banking on Values

Andreas Feiner, Founding Partner and Head of Values Based Research, Arabesque Asset Management

Professor Charles Munn, Banker and Business historian
Brandon Davies, Independent Non-executive Director Lintel Bank Ltd.
Amanda Young, Head of Responsible Investment, Standard Life Investments
Abdulla Mohammed Al Awar, CEO, Dubai Islamic Economy Development Centre
Richard de Belder, Partner, Dentons

and many others.


The Scottish Government was one of the sponsors of this forum which will set some

benchmarks for the banking industry in the coming months and years.  many speakers at plenery sessions highlighted the need for the whole change in culture withing the Finance industry aimed at a much more wholesome approach than existed and led to the  downturn and collapse in 2008 due to the ridiculous NINJA (no income No job)   mortgages encouraged by the banks both sides of the pond and the reselling and packaging of this debt in derivitives which received triple A tags! Despite thier shaky foundations.  One trader who decided to find out what was in one derivative that ther could be up to 100,000 items packaged in bond the bulk being debt of dubious value and one or two good stocks or insurances.



The two day long event in the Balmoral Hotel was ended with a Scottish government hosted night in the Grand Hall in Edinburgh Castle, hosted by senior politicians.





The coming two years will see general elections and a referendum which will shape the future of the Globe.  They are the Scottish government election, the American Presidential election and in 2017 a U.K. wide referendum on whether or not to stay in the EU?


With the behind the scenes string pulling and influences these are by no means a simple democratic election and referenda?  Indeed there may even be another Scottish indpendence referencum sparked by the outcome of the EU referendum??

The state of the globe just now is far from beneficial to the growing of economies excepting the blood money people who are making billions off wars.   They are drenched in blood money at present with the middle east situation the Afghan situation et al.

The Scottish election is going to attract much media attention as the SNP had a landslide win at the last UK general election which to everyones surprise put back in David Camerons lack lustre gang.   However, with a strong Scottish contingent at Westminster he is not going to get away with much.   In the USA the battle has begun with the high rollers in the lead for the Whitehouse.

Jeb Bush and he is a Bush whether he like is or not, not totally his own man, and Donald Trump the republican wildcard with eyes on an alaskan running mate Sarah Palin what a duo! look out folks

The Democratic side has the high profile former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, no stranger to the Whitehouse as she was first lady for eight years no less.   She is pushing hard to identify with the ordinary citizen hardly true nor was her time as first lady a smooth ride. Nor was her leaving of the Secretary of State in the shadow of the debacle in Benghazi. Libya.


The economy of the world somehow is being hidden from a Soverign Fund in Belgium rumoured according to one of my more reliable sources some 60 trillion Euros! no mean sum

the man the new world order people hate.

the man the new world order people hate.


In the USA 27trillion dollars has been sidelined in a bank escrow account in Virginia of the Bank of America if my other reliable source, who should have the money as it is his due to doing work in th eighties for REagan to speculate in Russian Rubles to help destableise that economy.

SO what is going on the Banksters are about to be caught mark my words the first Libor fixer is to go behind bars and may manuy others follow if the World in to be put on an even keel and a growth period like nothing before.   The time o f the Elite must come to an end and more and more and more are fed up of them and thier selfish tinkering.


Time to expose their plans if you want to catch up on this issue go find Jesse Venturas conspiracy series on US  TV.


tHIS BLOG IS about to complete a ten year investigation into this issue so watch this space?




On the occasion of the suffering and tribulations that I face every day, from the obscenity that you created with the Government Companies, managing the NSRF and Developmental programmes along with their sinful NGOs behind which Politicians hide with no national consciousness, I am trying to find out how well this Political Crime was organised.
Of course, today, the former government “orchestrators” blame an elected party that in its little course of existence has made great achievements in order to clean up the mess and I cannot understand why we Greeks do not support this new Government that does everything possible for the good of the people without covering the old dirt from the opposition parties and instead we allow the dirty interests and speculators to keep fighting and we are even misled by this.
We hear various nonsense, directed apparently, that most of the Media communicate. At last, gentlemen, come to your senses and provide support, for the good of our Country without political and economic interests in order for this Government to advance, a government that we as a people elected to succeed in all economic and political areas by changing something from this stigma of the old Government.
I would like to inform you that I am not a fan of SYRIZA, the Communists or Nea Dimokratia. For this reason, you and others having interests may cause abnormalities in the new Government but without considering the personal and party interest. At last, consider the interest of our Greece. Can’t you understand that with this every day behaviour of yours, you lose your fans? Are you so blind by the conquest of the chair and the hatred relegation, that you do not have the intelligence to understand that the people see this behaviour and distance themselves from you every day, eventually supporting those you battle tooth and nail?
Maybe a few people might think that I have something against them. I inform you that personally I am not hostile to anyone but those who based on their personal profit and intrigue cover wrongdoings that have been made over time against our Country.
The solution to the financial problems of Greece is to bring the stolen money back to the state coffers and to enable this government to take a breath for the general good of our country.
I inform you that I do not yield to threats and blackmail from whoever they may come.
Stop fighting with such fury a newly formed Government facing all the enemies of Greece with their heads held high, because you should be aware that a disaster of Greece will have an impact on you and your families.
I hope with all my heart that you come to your senses to be able to have good results in all areas.
Athanasios D. Laspopoulos
