Raise Inquiry into How Much Blind Eye Benefits Fraud funded IRA

This petition had 358 supporters

How much did the British Tax Payer fund the IRA ? Via administratively undetectable benefits frauds.

The major question is why was the loophole not sealed up in 1975/76 when Barbara Castle MP was DHSS minister and Jack STRAW then an Islington Labour Cllr her ministerial adviser. ? 

This question was raised in 1997 by Kent Police Authority calling for inquiry and report into matters related to Deal Barracks IRA bombing 1989. And who suppressed the inquiry ? Jack Straw Home Secretary. Did he act unlawfully as Judge in his own Cause and thus corrupt the MacPHERSON Inquiry to which the Kent Police Authority call for inquiry also applied ?

There is another petition calling for Islington Council to raise inquiry into cover up of 43 child care deaths (In Hackney and Islington care) at The Beeches Ixworth Suffolk 1954 to 1972.  Again questions about Mrs Castle and Jack Straw at DHSS 1975. 

The fraud used single mother claimants who had no declared "Liable relative" (absent father) In such claims there was no central record to detect multiple address claiming. The one we caught, by information received, in 1976 had 48 addresses across England one of which was used by active IRA. In modern day terms a fraud grossing around £24,000 per week. 

The fact this loophole was not sealed became tragically clear in security warnings given to Kent Police before the 1989 terrorist bombing of Deal Royal Marines Barracks. Six of the 41 lines of inquiry given to Kent Police were suspicions of DHSS fraud of the known MO of IRA.  Kent Police nil actioned all warnings. The reason why in 1997 their police authority called for inquiry and report.

It is natural justice if we have historical inquiry into soldiers who served in Ireland we should also have inquiry into those who afforded aid and comfort to the IRA such as ministers who left lucrative funding and operational routes open for them.
