Sir Bill Gammell FRSE is a multi-millionaire businessman with spooky connections. He funded childhood friend George W. Bush, and was also a schoolfriend of Tony Blair. He features in Russ Baker's Family Of Secrets.

Background

Bill Gammel is son of Jimmy Gammel (a former director of the Bank of Scotland). He became friends with George Bush Jr after George H. W. Bush. He was a preparatory schoolfriend of Tony Blair, where the two were basketball teammates.[1]

Career

Bill Gammel was a rugby player before going into the oil business. He repeatedly visited Midland, Texas. In 1980 set up Cairn Energy management and provided financial assistance to George Bush Jr.[1]

Connections

George W. Bush brought up the topic of his appreciation of the "fabulous family" of the Gammels in a 2005 interview.[1]

“Either Gammel was an extremely visionary businessman, or he had great connections, or both. One way or the other, along with Enron and Cheney's Haliburton, Gammel's Cairn was soon making a fortune off oil in India, a country not noted for its prospects in trhat regard.”
Russ Baker [2]
