Keir Starmer Must Go

with one comment

Failure

There can be no excuse for his gross dereliction of duty.  He has totally lost sight of the purpose of his job.  Whatever it takes to get rid of him, he must go.

UK Ministers Surrender Mckinnon To US Kidnap

with 5 comments

It’s said that when Gordon Brown offered Alan Johnson the Home Office he rejected it as a poisoned chalice.  He’s probably right.  It seems to be destroying his reputation just as it has so many others.

Abandoned

Nevertheless, the shameful and deeply treacherous conduct of this disgraced government towards Gary McKinnon cannot be excused.  There is no greater duty on any government than to protect its citizens, particularly those who are vulnerable.  There can be no basis in any system of justice for allowing a foreign power to abduct an accused person away from the scene of their alleged crime.  This is not extradition.  It is illegal rendition, as extraordinary as any.  It is kidnapping.

Alan Johnson, Gordon Brown and the rest are kowtowing to big bully USA.  British justice is in tatters as they offer up another sacrifice to America.  Believe me, they’d do the same to any of us: you, me, your grandmother, your starving babies and our injured soldiers if it suited them.  If they wanted to take Gary Mckinnon to Guantanamo Bay I don’t believe our government would have the courage to stop them.

Spineless Cowards

I call for the entire cabinet to be indicted on charges of dereliction of duty.  Will not even one of these excuses for men or women have the courage and decency to resign over this issue?

These people who call themselves our leaders are a disgrace to each and every one of us.  They are cowardly and spineless charlatans who are dragging our great country through the mire of ignominy and shame.  Gary Mckinnon is a victim of their cowardice.  Nothing can excuse what they have already put him through, let alone what is to come.

Thug Plod On The Loose

How many weeks on and we still have no progress on the police murder at the G20 protest?  What is the IPCC up to?

Brutal Assault

Brutal Assault

Now, again, we have crystal clear proof of outrageous, unjustified police assault.  It is a huge failure of leadership that the Chief Constable Of Nottingham has not already had the officers concerned in this scandal suspended and charged.   More than that, I believe that his failure to do so is a criminal offence in itself.  He is not just dithering, he is failing in his most fundamental duty – to protect the public.

Our tolerance level for this sort of police conduct is already terrifyingly high.  If he does not act then the Home Secretary should step in immediately.  This is not time for enquiries.  This is time for police thugs to be treated like any other lowlife pig and put in irons.

Jim Knight – The Scumbag Thief Of Dorset

leave a comment »

So I learned today that my own MP, Jim Knight, the Schools Minister, has his snout in the trough too.

He is one of several MPs who have claimed and been paid for tax advice from Dennis Bates, ex-Inland Revenue employee and wife of Labour MP, Meg Munn.  Mr Bates’ bill to Jim Knight explicitly stated “professional services in connection with your personal tax affairs”.

Scumbag Thief

Scumbag Thief

No reasonable person can believe that claiming such an expense is legitimate.  I have therefore written today to the Chief Constable of Dorset, Martin Baker, making a complaint of dishonesty.  I take no pleasure in this.  I regard it as my duty.

Jim Knight states on his own website on the subject of MPs expenses: “…more serious abuses must be referred to the police and action taken that matches any other employment and any other citizen…”

Let us see what happens.
