Energy Company from Hell

Shell Energy are the worst energy company I have ever dealt with. I had a tenanted property where the previous tenant had signed up to one of their pay as you go electricity card. It was winter and their very expensive tariff cost me a fortune when i kept topping it up. they blocked my transfer to another company and I had to involve the Energy Ombudsman. I have now sold the property but even now my solicitors can’t get a final bill from them to pay. Avoid at all cost. read more

Donovan Libel Actions Against Shell

ALFRED DONOVAN LIBEL ACTION AGAINST SHELL IN APRIL 1995 ACTION No. 1995 D328

Marketing Week: Shell faces libel threat from Don: 31 March 1994

Sales Promotion agency Don Marketing is threatening to sue Shell UK for libel while at the same time circulating the results of a poll it claims to have carried out among Shell retailers.

The two companies are due to meet in court over Don’s accusation that Shell used its ideas in a series of promotions without permission or payment.

Don has sent a letter to Shell from solicitors acting for Don claiming a press release the company issued two weeks ago was defamatory and untrue (MW March 24) and is demanding a retraction. read more

Wikipedia’s Reputation in Meltdown

By John Donovan

Unfortunately, the integrity of Wikipedia is corrupted by a policy allowing the anonymous editing of articles.

This fundamental flaw allows articles to be potentially sanitized of any facts embarrassing to a featured subject e.g. an evil oil giant

Larry Sanger, the co-creator of Wikipedia, has recently expressed similar misgivings about how Wikipedia has changed for the worse in recent years. He claims that it has been ruined.

Sanger identifies “anonymous contribution” as being detrimental to the accuracy of online information, which he rightly says is open to corruption by governments, corporations, spies and criminal organisations. He goes on to say that they know how to play the Wikipedian game. Sanger is now embarrassed by Wikipedia and has become its most prominent critic. read more

Extracts from an email John Donovan received from the Guardian newspaper on 4 February 2020: 

…we will no longer accept advertising from fossil fuel extractive industries. 

We are the first major global news organisation to turn our backs on the oil and gas industry. The move will cost us money. But we felt obliged to act…

For decades Shell has tried to suppress online criticism

1995

Shell first took issue with my Shell-focused Internet activity in March 1995. Shell’s rabid false allegations about my late father and me resulted in a libel action and other litigation (IP theft) all subsequently settled in our favour by Shell.

2000

In November 2000, DJ Freeman, solicitors acting for Shell, sent a threatening letter to a server hosting company for www.nuclear-crimes.com AKA Shell’s Nuclear Crimes. DJ Freeman boasted in their letter that the website in question had already been removed from the Internet by a previous hosting company, Easyspace after DJ Freeman sent a threatening letter on behalf of Shell. read more

Shell’s failed blundering attempt to kill my royaldutchshell.website

Shell’s failed blundering attempt to kill my royaldutchshell.website

By John Donovan (last updated 5 Sept 2021)

Last week, a CYBERSECURITY INTELLIGENCE outfit acting for Shell issued a 5-day ultimatum on behalf of Shell to the company hosting my royaldutchshell.website.

I would not have had a clue about the ultimatum letter if the hosting company had not tipped me off about what was going on behind my back at Shell’s direction.

For 26 years, I have used the Internet as a medium to criticise and expose Shell’s unscrupulous dishonest activities, including, for example, the Shell securities fraud that ruined Shell’s reputation. read more

Fed up trying to dodge Amazon attempts to corral you into joining Amazon Prime?

Fed up trying to dodge Amazon attempts to corral you into joining Amazon Prime?

Have you noticed how increasingly difficult it is becoming to place an order with Amazon without being corralled into a free trial of Amazon Prime?

By John Donovan 

Until today, I have managed to successfully dodge Amazon’s persistent extremely annoying attempts to corral me into joining Amazon Prime. 

I ended up sending the following message to Amazon:  

I DON’T WANT AMAZON PRIME. I WAS TRYING VERY HARD TO PLACE AN ORDER WITHOUT HAVING TO JOIN AMAZON PRIME. ANOTHER PERSON IN MY HOUSEHOLD ALREADY HAS IT. YOU ARE MAKING IT VERY DIFFICULT TO DO BUSINESS WITH AMAZON. TOO PUSHY BY FAR. SPOILING AN OTHERWISE GREAT SERVICE. I REPEAT. I DO NOT WANT AMAZON PRIME. read more

Replica of the Wikipedia article: royaldutchshellplc.com

As Wikipedia editors are aware, my father Alfred Donovan passed away in 2013. Since there are a number of references to him in the above Wikipedia article, I provided proof in the form of a Guardian newspaper article about Shell that mentioned his death, hoping the information would be updated.

Evidence confirms that Shell fuelled the Nazi war machine

Another hammer blow for Shell. Evidence confirms that Shell fuelled the Nazi war machine

By John Donovan: 31 May 2021 (updated JULY 2021)

A new book by James Marriott and Terry Macalister reveals the extent to which the oil company Royal Dutch Shell played a key role in Hitler’s war effort.

James Marriott is a writer and activist with three decades of knowledge of the oil sector. Terry Macalister is a freelance journalist and former energy editor of the Guardian

As the author of the Kindle book published in 2016 –  Sir Henri Deterding and the Nazi History of Royal Dutch Shell – I welcome the fact that other parties have reached the same basic conclusions as I did after studying much of the same evidence.

Based on that evidence I lunched a petition several years ago demanding that Royal Dutch Shell should apologise for antisemitic conduct and Nazi support

Shell will find it more difficult to dismiss the independent findings in the new book, including from an award-winning journalist.

The following extracts are from a related article by opendemocracy.net headlined: Calls for Shell to apologise for ‘fuelling Nazi war machine’ EXTRACTS FROM THE RELATED ARTICLE BY Adam Ramsay

According to ‘Crude Britannia’, by James Marriott and Terry Macalister, at the outbreak of World War Two the Anglo-Dutch company “effectively divided into an Allied corporation and an Axis corporation”. The Nazi-supporting branch of Shell, called Rhenania-Ossag, “swung in behind the [German] government as the Nazi state began to invade other countries”.

Or as Shell’s official history states ‘Following Hilter’s annexation of Austria and Czechoslovakia, (Shell) Group managing directors sanctioned Rhenania-Ossag taking over Shell companies in those countries.’ The same process took place in Hungary, Yugoslavia and Greece after Germany took control of those states.

Shell’s German subsidiary, Rhenania-Ossag, fired all the Jewish members on its board in May and June 1933. The appointments to replace them included a member of the Nazi party. The official history states, “the far reaching changes to the Rhenania-Ossag board could not have taken place without the full consent of [Shell Central Offices… No questions of principle or moral judgements about the Hitler regime appear to have arisen.” Shell’s historians were not able to establish what happened next to these Jewish staff members.

Seven years later, after Germany invaded Holland, the Swastika flew outside Shell’s HQ in The Hague.

EXTRACTS END

I was originally tipped off about Shell’s concern over its past toxic history by Shell internal communications never meant for my eyes.

Shell had advance sight of my book and my website ShellNaziHistory.com. Despite aggressive threats, bluster and a global spying operation, Shell took no legal action. No multinational giant would want to draw attention to its past association with Hitler and the Nazis.

Explainer: What the Dutch Court Carbon Emissions Ruling Means for Shell

(Reuters) – A Dutch court on Wednesday ordered Royal Dutch Shell to significantly deepen planned greenhouse gas emission cuts, in a landmark ruling that could pave the way for legal action against energy companies around the world.

Shell said it was “disappointed” by the ruling which it plans to appeal.

Here are some key points about the ruling:

Trustpilot Shell Energy Broadband Reviews: Terrible Wifi /lied

Extracts from a Shell Energy customer review posted on Trustpilot: “The quality of the copper wifi is rubbish and constantly disconnects from my TV and laptop. I called up to cancel, within what I think is my legal right to a ‘14 day cooling off period’, only to be informed that Shell’s policy for this always ends the day before you receive your wifi box i.e. you can never try it and then cancel if the service is not good enough.”

Oil supermajors’ mega-bet on natural gas

Oil supermajors’ mega-bet on natural gas

Is the least grubby hydrocarbon a bridge fuel to a greener future, or a trap?

Energy companies have no seat at the climate high table convened by President Joe Biden on April 22nd and 23rd, to which he has invited 40 other world leaders to discuss how to speed up the shift from dirty energy. From the sidelines, coal firms will scowl at efforts to curb demand in Asia and oil drillers will wince at support for electric cars. Watching particularly closely will be those companies which have bet big on natural gas. As the energy transition gathers momentum, no fuel’s future is hazier than that of the least grubby hydrocarbon. read more

Ensure Shell, Eni Face Prosecution In Nigeria, Group Tells Buhari

Ensure Shell, Eni Face Prosecution In Nigeria, Group Tells Buhari

Eni and Shell have been dragged to court in Milan, Italy over alleged cases of corruption in relation to the OPL245.

BY SAHARAREPORTERS, NEW YORK APR 12, 2021

An anti-corruption group, Human and Environmental Development Agenda, (HEDA Resource Centre) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure the oil giants, Shell and Eni, face prosecution in Nigeria.

The group, in a letter addressed to Buhari, advised the President to ignore public statements by the oil company, Eni, that the trial the company had faced in Italy should substitute for any other possible legal action in Nigeria. read more
