    This fat repugnant rascal has fleeced for years, is caught with the proverbial hand in till (or is it trough), and is “elevated” to the peerage.
    Personally I think he SHOULD be elevated

      Don’t forget that the TA also sends it’s men to Afghanistan. There are currently 600 plus TA’s serving in the frontline in Afghanistan. They have lost a number of their men to IED’s etc (sorry I don’t know the figure but no doubt someone on here does) and to casualty.

      The TA’s who are scheduled to be posted to Afghanistan in 2010 are now faced with not just buying some of their own kit alongside the rest of our troops but also paying for their training if they want it – which of course they do.

      What sort of government do we have that is sending our men into war ill equipped, having to buy their own kit and now having to pay for their own training?

    Sniffer Of The Yard says:

    When Peter Hain was arrested for bank robbery: On Friday, 24 October 1975, Barclays Bank in Putney was robbed of £490 by a man who entered the premises and grabbed the money.

    Police were given a description of the robber by the bank cashier who had been forced to hand over the money, and three schoolboys who witnessed the robbery.

    The schoolboys followed the suspect who then threw the money away and climbed into a blue Volkswagen Beetle and drove away.

    Based on the boys’ description of the suspect, and the vehicle’s description (which included the number plate), Mr Hain was identified by the police and arrested at his nearby home a short while later. He admitted to being out in his car at the time, but claimed he was buying a typewriter ribbon near the bank.

    Mr Hain was later positively identified by the bank cashier at a police line-up.

    Laughably, Mr Hain claimed that he had been “set up” with a body double by mysterious “South African intelligence agents” and pleaded not guilty in the resultant court case.

    Mr Hain’s lawyers considered the defence so pathetic that they did not even enter it into the court records, and instead relied on the fact that the case had been given undue publicity which, they claimed, would have affected the reliability of the eyewitnesses.

    Based on this defence alone, and disregarding the four eyewitnesses who positively identified Mr Hain as the bank robber, he was found not guilty. The judge, Alan King-Hamilton, told the jury that “Your conclusion was obviously a very difficult one.”

    • 122
      Engineer says:

      Wasn’t Hain part of a group that vandalised the pitch at the Oval during the 1970 South Africa cricket tour?

      If so, he deserves to be pinned to a sight-screen by Flintoff bouncers for an extended period. Or worse.

      The man is an odious, hypocritical, wind-bag.

      In the years following this event Mr Hain became more proficient and a lot more subtle in his methods of stealing money.

    We can blame the Commons Authorities, various Speakers, multitudinous Whips, MPs themselves (they’ve conducted themselves like children let loose in a sweet shop), the lobby correspondents who all knew but didn’t tell. We can blame Party leaderships for tacitly encouraging the troughing, and many assorted Commons Committees for not considering the public’s best interests.

        Engineer says:

        I stand to be corrected, but I believe it started during the days of pay restraint in the 1970′s as a substitute for a pay-rise, though under which administration, I don’t know. It has continued since then, but during the 1980′s and 1990′s, it was kept quiet, and reasonably proportionate. All the house-flipping and overt heavy-duty all-out free-for-all claiming for anything and everything has developed over the last decade.

        It’s often the way. Quietly milk a little from the system, and nobody bothers much. But they get complacent, and greedy. Get away with a little, so they want a bit more. Then a lot more. Until, eventually, by creeping degrees, it’s as near as dammit full-on theft.

        If they’d kept to subtley milking a bit from the system, the chances are we would still be none the wiser today. Greedy pigs have only themselves to blame.

          There’s no need to right anonymous off whoever that is. But people do make mis-aprehensions such as with Gordon Brown who many thought he should never become Prime Minister but he prevailed and as a result this has led many who weren’t interested in politics to become very interested and in fact are dropping their former interests just to get involved to right what is wrong in British Politics.

    O/T due to the fact that I’m in bed with swine flu (cue unsuitable jokes..) and bored – what about the several thousand protests regarding the Daily Mail woman’s comments about …. can’t remember his name… If protest only requires the press of one return button on the Twitter website rather than writing a letter, putting on a stamp and walking to the post box, should the Twitter protests carry less weight? And on this blog, because it’s easy to express an opinion, does that devalue the opinions? Presumably not, but I do wonder, or even wander…Oh dear, febrile, febrile

    We are because we dont take to the streets, we sit and watch the mind numbing TV shite designed to knock the fight out of us.

    We are because we are so ” tolerant”, We tolerate the fucking intolerable and still we do nothing.

    Dripping wet liberals like to foam at the mouth about now and then about how Winston Churchill was a warmonger and how we’d have been better off negotiating peace with Hitler, even if it meant a life under the jackboot. Well, next time you hear it happen, tell them to suck on this. Because whatever else the old chap was, he had an almost Nostrodamian ability when it comes to predicting the rise of socialism and its consequences.

    This from a 1945 election speech, highlighted by a letter writer in today’s Daily Mail. It could almost have been written about NuLabour:

    “No socialist Government conducting the entire life and industry of the country could afford to allow free, sharp or violently worded expression of public discontent. They would have to fall back on some sort of gestapo, no doubt very humanely directed in the first instance.

    “And this would nip opinion in the bud; it would stop criticism as it reared his head, and it would gather all the power to the supreme party leaders, rising like stately pinnacles above their vast bureaucracies of civil servants, no longer servants and no longer civil.

    My friends, I must tell you that a socialist policy is abhorrent to the British idea of freedom….a free parliament is odious to the socialist doctrinaire.”

    Representative democracy depends on our representatives using their judgment and intelligence to represent the best interests of their voters.
    It involves them doing their best for the people who elect them: standing up for them against the power of the state and speaking up in defence of their freedoms. Sometimes it requires the elected representative to stand up to his own electors if he knows them to be wrongheaded or mistaken.
    That is called leadership.
    People need leaders and are quick to follow one whom they trust.

    But the people we have elected have failed to lead us and to do what we expected of them and have become illegitimate. The ‘expenses scandal’ is merely a diversion from our fury at their more fundamental failure to do the right thing by us, but it is the only way we have to express our disgust at the venality, self-interest and immorality of our MPs.

    But these people simply reflect the immorality of the times – and in that sense are our proper representatives because they are just like us – but we don’t like what we see in ourselves and therefore in those we have elected. We have grown to hate them because we hate what we have become, as individuals and as a nation. And unless the conservatives grasp this fundamental point they will be vilified in their turn.

    They must give us a moral lead, by showing self-restraint, honour, honesty, decency and try to give us back our self-respect. Of course they will not be liked for doing the right thing (“no good deed ever goes unpunished” – Oscar Wilde) but they must be prepared to sacrifice themselves for the sake of the nation; that is what politicians are for and unless they go into politics intending to do that they ought not to get involved.
    People don’t mind the power and privilege so long as it goes with self-sacrifice; what they can’t stomach is self-serving and unaccountable privilege. That’s why the people bays for blood.

    He’s made the pound so puny that only a heatwave will rescue a good ole Damp British ‘bummer of a summer’ stay-cation.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
