Haulage contractor Alan Barr of Cheshire is the front man for Foundation X, according to the Daily Mirror of London. Nothing much more is known about the man than is contained in the Mirror’s report. Foundation X offered the British Government £22billion to dig itself out of its present financial hole. See video for report by Lord James of Blackheath on the proposal.
Ex-haulier Alan Barr behind secret organisation Foundation X that offered Government £22billion load

The man fronting a secret organisation that offered the Government £22billion to help it out of a hole has been revealed as an ex-haulier.
Alan Barr, 62, insists Foundation X wants to make a no strings, interest-free loan to boost the economy.
He said extra is available to build hospitals, schools and London’s Crossrail and he is “quite hopeful” the PM would accept.
This month, Lord James of Blackheath, who had met Barr, told baffled peers Foundation X had “an enormous amount of money available” and all the PM had to do was take a phone call.
Barr, who lives in Cheshire in a £200,000 home with his girlfriend Jane Barry, said he spent 10 years in the Far East brokering similar deals.
He said: “I have devoted 26 years to altruistic work. I’ve met many heads of state.”
Barr said his girlfriend knew nothing of the offer: “I don’t want her thinking I’m going crazy, do I?”
