Mark Reckless Should Sue Grant Shapps For Defamation.

The Odious Slanderer, Grant Shapps

Odious Slanderer And Wide Boy, Grant Shapps

The odious wide boy Grant Shapps, chair of the Tory party, has launched an attack on Mark Reckless which goes way beyond politics, it is defamation. Reckless should sue the slimy oik for every penny he has got.

I know a little about defamation from bitter, personal experience.  Shapps is worth suing, he’s wealthy and when you are slandered, maliciously and deliberately and the person responsible can pay, he deserves to.

Let’s be clear, Shapps is a first rate scumbag.  He made his fortune by selling despicable and fraudulent get rich quick schemes under a succession of false identities.  That he is now chairman of the Tory party says everything about how far that once noble institution has fallen.

My experience also tells me that Reckless will find a legal team willing to work on a conditional fee agreement.  There is no doubt that Shapps’ disgraceful words are deliberately calculated to cause serious damage to Reckless and it seems to me that his repeated accusations of lying are factually inaccurate or unsupportable opinion, spoken out of malice. This ticks all the boxes as required under the Civil Procedure Rules.

Resorting to law in politics is something that must only be done in the most serious and extreme of circumstances, when those engaged in defamation have breached every limit, every red line and every tenet of civilised behaviour.  That is the basis on which I decided to launch legal action against my abusers back at the beginning of 2013 and I urge Mark Reckless to take similar action now.

He, as I did, has a wider responsibility.  Shapps’ behaviour is beneath contempt and beyond redemption.  It is so serious that a stand must be made.  People who sink so low must be stopped in the interests of wider society – just as those who attacked me.

Shapps should also reflect on this – had he made his remarks after the writ for the Rochester and Strood by-election had been moved, he should now be facing criminal charges under section 106 of the Representation of the People Act 1983.  Regrettably the maximum penalty is a fine of £5,000 but Shapps political career would then be finished.  For that, the whole country would be grateful, whatever their political views.  People who behave in the way that Shapps has, like those who defamed me, deserve everything they get.  They should be made outcasts from civilised society and debate.

Barclays’ Biggest Banker Robber Plans Smash ‘n’ Grab On Britain

The Unacceptable Face Of Banking

We don’t want Bob Diamond in Britain. He’s to be the next chief executive at Barclays Bank.  See here.  He’s not the “right sort of chap” for us or, if you prefer, he doesn’t have “the right stuff” for Britain.  He’s a wide boy and a high stakes gambler.  We don’t want him anywhere near our banks, our savings or our overdrafts.  Why can’t he just go back to the land of the free and the home of the brave and chowdown with all the other cowboys?  He’s the wrong man for Britain.

It’s people like Bob Diamond who were directly responsible for the banking crisis and for bringing the world’s economy virtually to its knees.   He won all his bets so he’s alright.  Let’s be clear though, it’s his behaviour and those like him that is to blame for the massive cuts that we’re all facing.  He has robbed our parents of their pensions, hamstringed our business world, destroyed our children’s jobs and sabotaged their children’s education.  He is laughing all over his flabby, smug face at our expense.

He’s won a £100 million fortune on exactly the sort of gambling which has destroyed our economy.

Vince Cable should stop posturing.  He was great in opposition but it seems, even in government, all he can do is snipe from the sidelines.

I say, deny Bob Diamond entry into Britain on the grounds that he would be a danger to the country.  Barclays may claim that it has accepted no help from the taxpayer but its exploitative business model depends on blackmailing us with its size and importance to the economy, just like all the banks.

What we needed to do was clamp down hard on their excess, split them into smaller pieces, separate casino investment from banking services, force them into accountable lending policies, severly limit earnings levels and make it clear that they work for us, not vice versa.

We may already be too late.  Britain’s banks continue to be out of control.

Banker Robbers Bonus Blackmail

We’re told that the banks have to pay big bonuses in order to retain and attract the right staff.  We’re told that unless we shell out millions to these mysterious unnamed individuals, these “masters of the universe”, that we can kiss goodbye to the money we’ve already put in.  We’ll be damaging our own investment.

Twaddle!  Rubbish!  Bulls**t!  Bollo**s!

These people aren’t doctors or scientists or lawyers or architects – or even plumbers or electricians.  They’re blaggers.  Nothing more, nothing less.  All they’re doing with these ridiculous claims is trying to blag us all over again.  Their job is little different from that of an advertising salesman who sits on the phone all day and maybe makes £1000 or £2000 a week.  In fact, many salesman have much wider knowledge, better people skills and sharper brains than these wide boys in the city that have nerve, greed and little else to offer.

This is just an attempt to blackmail us.  There are tens of thousands of bright, keen, hungry people out there who could do these bankers’ jobs with very little difficulty.  In fact, fresh new blood that hasn’t been corrupted by the past would be a much better idea.  We could recruit from the world of advertising, from market traders flogging fruit, vegetables, meat, fish and “knock off”.  Why not just pick a few MBA graduates at random or take the top banking graduates from last year and give them the big jobs?

Con Man

None of these people could do any worse than the sharks who got us into this trouble in the first place.  Those, like Stephen Hester of RBS, who have taken over recently are no better.  They’re still infected with the same ways as before.  After Chief Thief Goodwin has had his turn in the trough they’re just elbowing through for their own go.

There is no special expertise or skill required to be a banker.  Don’t let these charlatans and sons of charlatans tell you any different.

Don’t wait for the RBS directors’ resignations.  Sack them now for having the audacity to try and pull the wool over our eyes once again.
