Philip May had a financial interest in bombing Syria – claim

Suspicion: Did Theresa May use the air strikes on Syria to deliver a huge profit to her husband Philip?

Opponents of the Conservative government have spent years looking for a conflict of interest between Theresa May and her husband Philip’s work. It seems we may have found one at last.

Consider this:

“Philip May [husband of UK prime minister Theresa] now works as an investment relationship manager for the Capital Group. [His job] has opened the powerful couple up to suggestions of conflicted interests.

“The Syrian air strikes are a perfect example of how companies can profit from acts of war. It is clear that Philip May has an influence on the final decisions which the UK Prime Minister takes, so is it appropriate for him to work for a company which has now profited from UK military action?

“Currently, Capital Group owns around 10.39 percent of Lockheed Martin [the American global aerospace, defence, security, and advanced technologies company]. So, while UK Prime Minister Theresa May supports Trump and Macron’s military action in Syria, she is also helping her husband’s investment firm to make a killing.

“The Syria air strikes that took place on 14th April, 2018 saw the debut of a new type of cruise missile developed by the Lockheed Martin Corporation.

“The JASSM was produced at a Lockheed Martin plant in Troy, Alabama, and has a low radar cross-section that makes it difficult to detect. The air-launched cruise missile is designed to penetrate as far as 200 miles into enemy territory. The extended version, which destroyed the Barzah Research and Development Center located in the greater Damascus area, can fly more than 500 miles.

“With each JASSM costing over a million dollars, Lockheed Martin will make a tidy profit. Their investors, including Capital Group, will make a fortune, in part due to of one of their employees partners launching legally questionable air strikes, without the permission of the UK Parliament.”

    Corruption is so endemic it’s become hidden in plain sight and increasingly accepted as normal.

    Pretty close to the email I sent to my MP: I understand that Theresa May’s husband, Philip, is a Senior Executive of Capital Group, an investment firm that holds considerable shares in Lockheed Martin. I further understand that Lockheed Martin is the company responsible for the production of the JASSM (, the missile used in the recent illegal attacks by the USA, UK and France on Syria. Apparently, more than $100m worth of missiles were fired, leading to a massive increase in the share value of Lockheed Martin and a financial “killing” for Philip May’s company.

    As you are aware, Mrs May chose not to seek the approval of Parliament before approving the vicious assault, without supporting evidence, on a sovereign nation. I believe she did this with the full knowledge that her husband’s company stood to benefit financially from the attack.

    I would like to request that you raise the issue of her and her husband’s conflict of interest in her reaching this decision
