Well the trinity trust and credit suisse links should give him access to people with money and doesn't being in Guernsey mean he (and C4ID) can be quite opaque about who he's dealing with and getting funding from? Do they have to be as open as GB?

Tried to have a look at the HQ of the John Newton Project but it's set well back from the road on the edge of Stratford. Will try and have a better look when next there. The John Newton project seems to be linked to something called 'accross the city' which says it is a collection of independent organisations. Can't access any of the across the city links(one of which is in Guernsey) from the John newton project site though in theory you should be able to. If you type both into google it just comes up with a load of church websites from all over the place includin NI, but surprisingly not the guernsey one. None of them throw any light on how they're linked to the JN project but all look fairly innocent. One of the links is to churches in wessex and winchester-under newfrontiers.

John Langlois also has his onw entry on sourcewatch. It seems mainly to be due to the link with the John Newton project. Frustratingly sourcewatch doesn't give any clue as to why either is there. Does anyone know much about sourcewatch. It says it looks at the hidden faces behind policy making and seems to be mainly concerned with JN projects mission statement. I must admit that did look a bit wedge strategy.

I suspect not that much as the Channel Islands have been under intense international pressure (through the OECD) to clear up their acts in financial services. Langlois's effors in making Guerney into an e-commerce centre are undoubtedly part of an effort to get business in to replace tax evasion/avoidence and the principle source of business. In fact that sort of thing has been going on for years. a pal of mine was involved in the early 90s with a project to make Jersey a centre of international satellite based data communications. Same game, really. Avoid EU rules (the CIs are not part of the EU) and keep ahead of British regulators.

Didn't work; the inbred sheep shaggers on Jersey couldn't figure out how to change a plug let alone how satellites worked. The place is living abut 60 years in the past.

IIRC Sourcewatch sort of automatically picks up things. it's all a bit messy and not a good place to do online research.
