the story.

The local government funding crisis has become so 
dire that councils are being forced to sell 
thousands of public spaces – from libraries and 
community centres to playgrounds and pools – and 
are using some of the cash to fund further 
service cuts and redundancy payments.

In a major collaborative 
with HuffPost UK and regional journalists across 
the country, the Bureau has compiled data on more 
than 12,000 public spaces disposed of by councils 
since 2014/15. We found that councils raised a 
total of £9.1 billion from selling property during this period.

The findings lay bare the spiralling impact of 
eight successive years of austerity, leaving 
services shut and buildings closed. Councils have 
been forced to take ever more desperate measures 
to stay in the black as their funding from 
central government has been cut by about 60% since 2010.

'From South America, where payment must be made 
with subtlety, the Bormann organization has made 
a substantial contribution. It has drawn many of 
the brightest Jewish businessmen into a 
participatory role in the development of many of 
its corporations, and many of these Jews share 
their prosperity most generously with Israel. If 
their proposals are sound, they are even provided 
with a specially dispensed venture capital fund. 
I spoke with one Jewish businessmen in Hartford, 
Connecticut. He had arrived there quite unknown 
several years before our conversation, but with 
Bormann money as his leverage. Today he is more 
than a millionaire, a quiet leader in the 
community with a certain share of his profits 
earmarked as always for his venture capital 
benefactors. This has taken place in many other 
instances across America and demonstrates how 
Bormann’s people operate in the contemporary 
commercial world, in contrast to the fanciful 
nonsense with which Nazis are described in so much “literature.”

So much emphasis is placed on select Jewish 
participation in Bormann companies that when 
Adolf Eichmann was seized and taken to Tel Aviv 
to stand trial, it produced a shock wave in the 
Jewish and German communities of Buenos Aires. 
Jewish leaders informed the Israeli authorities 
in no uncertain terms that this must never happen 
again because a repetition would permanently 
rupture relations with the Germans of Latin 
America, as well as with the Bormann 
organization, and cut off the flow of Jewish 
money to Israel. It never happened again, and the 
pursuit of Bormann quieted down at the request of 
these Jewish leaders. He is residing in an 
Argentinian safe haven, protected by the most 
efficient German infrastructure in history as 
well as by all those whose prosperity depends on his well-being.'
