It’s a crime. There should be hundreds of them in jail.

Hacked Off’s Leveson Petition Passes 100,000 Signatures

leave a comment »

hacked-off-logoCongratulations on this achievement. We need to go much further though.

This corrupt government has already reneged on its e-petition pledge and ignored many that have grown well past the 100,000 mark.

The people of Britain are stitched up every day by the oligarchy of Westminster, the press and the banks and we need to fight back. This is an excellent cause around which to unite.

The press barons are a self-serving, dishonest collection of owners and editors who manipulate their power and their contacts for personal political and financial gain. They and their sleazy hacks are entirely distinct from the noble profession of journalism.

At all costs we must resist any attempt to revert to ‘self-regulation’. The lunatics have been in charge of the asylum for too long.

SIGN THE PETITION HERE!

Who Is The Unfairest Of Them All?

with 3 comments

Amidst the roar of gunfire from the deliberate, calculated massacre by evil Israeli stormtroopers and the tragedy of a crazed lunatic in Cumbria, there is yet another political scandal that cannot be allowed to pass.

Overpaid, Incompetent And Unfair

John Fingleton, Chief Executive of the Office Of Fair Trading, the man who let the British banks off the £40 billion they stole from British consumers, turns out to be the highest paid civil servant in the country.  See here.  This is the most unfair trading of all and makes a mockery of any concept of “fairness”.

He is responsible for the disastrous failure to protect British consumers from the greedy banker robbers who plundered their accounts with outrageous and illegal charges.  He led the badly organised legal challenge to the banks thievery which the Supreme Court turned away as misdirected.  The Supreme Court then invited the OFT to revert to them on a different basis but for reasons that have never been properly explained, Fingleton just gave up.  See here for the full story.

This man is not only unfair but incompetent.  No one is responsible for more unfair treatment of British consumers than he.  It is a scandal that he is even still in his job let alone paid at such an exorbitant rate.

There Are Lies, Damned Lies And Then There’s Gordon Brown

How he has the bare faced cheek to claim that he’s been saying “for months” that the banks should have been more tightly regulated!!  The man has been incredible for some time but even for him this latest, astonishing volte face is truly astounding.

The Big Fibber

Our Prime Minister is nothing short of a liar.  When he appears tonight on the first ever great TV debate let us hope that his true colours are revealed.  Messrs Cameron and Clegg have the opportunity to drive home the coffin nails into Gordon Brown’s premiership.  Let them strike hard and true.  The country needs relief from this shabby little man, his putrid ideas and his shameful politics.

What Is A Supreme Court For?

with one comment

Justice?

Is it to overlook Parliament’s clear intent and to focus on the minutiae of poorly drafted legislation?  Is it to preserve and strengthen the law or is it to be focused on justice?  Is it to consider cases only on the basis of pleadings presented by barristers or should it look to the wider issue?  Is it to bolster the use of disproportionate power with which big institutions bully their customers or should it be to enforce fairness?  Is it for “distinguished” lawyers to live out their latter years in fine, new ermine robes in luxurious surroundings or is it  to promote justice?

I don’t know.  Do you?

Police Misconduct

with one comment

The outrageous arrest and detention of Tory MP, Damian Green is a dangerous and worrying mistake of the most serious proportions.

Those responsible for this must be held to account for an error of judgement that is, literally, unforgiveable.

In this the Metroplitan Police should look to the BBC for an example rather than the banks or the government.  The people responsible must lose their jobs without compensation.
