Baron Norman Lamont of Lerwick, as he was made in 1998[1] is a deep politician who held a series of key political appointments at crucial times:- he became UK Minister for Defence Procurement just in time to sign the Al-Yamamah arms deal‎ and he was Chancellor of the Exchequer when Black Wednesday transferred around £3,000,000,000 from UK taxpayers to currency traders. He was European chair of Le Cercle.

Background

Before entering Parliament he worked for N M Rothschild & Sons, the investment bank, and became director of Rothschild Asset Management.[2]

Le Cercle

Full article: Rated 5/5 Le Cercle

Lamont's profile at Benador Associates noted in 2010 that "Since 1996 Lamont has been Chairman of Le Cercle, a foreign policy Club founded by German Chancellor Adenauer after the War with members from over twenty-five countries. This group, which meets bi-annually in Washington DC, includes many senior intelligence experts and has a particular interest in the War against Terrorism".[3]

His involvement with Le Cercle is covered in detail by The Institute for the Study of Globalisation and Covert Politics in a comprehensive study: Le Cercle and the struggle for the European continent which it subtitles a "Private bridge between Vatican-Paneuropean and Anglo-American intelligence". The study includes membership list back to its original foundation and names as "important members" Lord Julian Amery, his protege Jonathan Aitken and Lord Norman Lamont (all three members of the Privy Council).

The Evening Standard reported in 2003 that Lamont was attending a Le Cercle gathering in Salzburg.[4]

Al Yamanah weapons deal

Lamont was made Minister for Defence Procurement under Margaret Thatcher just before the signing of the first tranche of the Al-Yamamah arms deal‎ disbursed millions of pounds of commissions to various parties.

Black Wednesday

On 16 September 1992, a.k.a. 'Black Wednesday', Lamont as Chancellor of the Exchequer sold around £27 billion of sterling reserves before leaving the Exchange Rate Mechanism. The resultant loss to the UK Treasury was estimated at around £3.3 billion[5] This is generally understood as an accidental loss, one in which politicians learned humility in the face of the "free market" forces they had regulated into existence. The fact remains however, that Lamont's decisions caused people he knew personally to make vast profits at the UK tax payers' expense. George Soros in particular, having lead the short selling of sterling for some days before, pocketed over £1 billion profit from the episode. Interestingly, Soros is strongly suspected to be a member of Le Cercle, a deep state group which Lamont later chaired.[6] At a press conference two weeks later, Lamont when asked why he was so cheerful, replied "Well, it is a very beautiful morning, but it is funny you should say that. My wife said she heard me singing in the bath this morning."[7]

Euro Double think

It is interesting that while chairing the strongly pro-European Le Cercle, Lamont was co-chair of the anti-European Bruges Group.[8]
