Calamity Kenny’s Latest Comedy Moment

An update on calamity Kenny hits the inbox from a Scottish co-conspirator:

You may like to know that Kenny today led Ed Milliband through the turnstiles at the Scottish Parliament. However, oor Kenny led Ed to the wrong turnstile that only allows people to enter rather than exit. Cue a good 30 seconds or so of Ed looking like a cock trying to get through an immovable door. A far cry from Kenny’s door holding days of glory with Mr Brown.

Malcolm Tucker he ain’t…

    Cameron makes the Guardian very happy on crime says:

    On prisons, Ken Clarke shows real reforming spirit

    A more rational debate on penal policy has been opened. Now Clarke has political and technical hurdles to negotiate

    To the delight of prison reformers, justice secretary Kenneth Clarke has shown which way he wants to turn on prison policy. Expressing what seemed genuine astonishment that the numbers behind bars had doubled since he was home secretary in 1992, his recognition in today’s speech at King’s College London that there are more people in prison than necessary is as welcome as it is overdue. His description of prison as often costly and ineffectual marks a return to late 1980s Conservative policy under Douglas Hurd, which saw that far from working, “imprisonment can often be an expensive way of making bad people worse.”

    The Home Secretary says:

    Now look, know that some of you are concerned about my speech on prisons but let me explain a bit more about it, because as always I’ve been misrepresented by the silly right wing tory press.

    We liberals have done a cost benefit analysis, and found that the cost of keeping criminals in jail, compared with releaseing them and risking the occasional one murdering an old lady or robbing a few banks, is prohibitive.

    Thing is, there’s simply no way of moneytising jails! There’s no demand for mailbags anymore, and we daren’t privatise them all or it will mean prisoners having to pay rent for their cells.

    So what I say to loyal, concerned tories is: I don’t give a stuff actually. To my liberal and labour friends, especially those at the guardian, I say crime is not as common as victims like us to think. Don’t have nightmares!

    Dr Kelly ‘couldn’t have slit his wrist as he was too weak’

    Dramatic new testimony has heaped pressure on ministers to reopen the investigation into the death of Dr David Kelly.
    A female colleague claims that the UN weapons inspector could not have committed suicide as claimed, as he was too weak to cut his own wrist.
    Mai Pedersen, a U.S. Air Force officer who served with Dr Kelly’s inspection team in Iraq, said a hand and arm injury meant that the 59-year-old even ‘had difficulty cutting his own steak’.

    Let’s remember that the Cabinet Office is no longer in thrall to labour, the metropolitan police are no longer under the control of a labour freak, MI5 has been released from the tentacles of labour’s stooge = scratty starlet.

    Lets not put these poor misguided souls into prison because they might become indoctrinated into more crime as a result.
    What a complete and utter load of bo—-ks this is,in this country the majority of people are law abiding and do understand what is right from wrong.
    On the other hand we have a minority,who pursue a life of crime as being normal to their values.
    This is my opinion,in countries where they are completely intolerant of crimminal activity the crime rate is usually low.
    Why should the majority who are law abiding have to live in fear of a minority who will perpetrate whatever crimes against them.
    Governments who are elected by a majority of law abiding citizens are duty bound to protect their citizens,surely this means they must segregate the crimminals from general society until they change their ways and become part of law abiding citizens.
    What I am hearing today suggests that we should go soft on crimminals,does Mr Clarke not understand that the more of these nomarks who are given soft options will react as such and just carry on as normal knowing they will never face an experience in gaol that will make them think long and hard about wether they want to experience it again.

    “Given the absence of any coroner’s inquest and the perpetual secrecy surrounding the post-mortem examination, it is painfully obvious that this matter continues to cry out for a formal, independent and complete review. Ms Pederson fully supports and adds her voice to such an effort. The passage of time (does) not diminish either the public’s interest or the Government’s responsibility to ascertain the full truth, whatever that might be.”

    Truth is Hutton WAS a public inquiry.l

    The problem with his public inquiry is that he could bnot command testimony under oath.

    Public Inquiries, set up as Hutton was, can’t demand witnesses appear to give evidence and, even when they choose to appear, the Inquiry cannot demand that their testimony be given under legal oath. Therefore witbnesses can liue, becaise they are not legally perjuring themselves!!! Chilcoot is the same!!!

    Therefore you can lie all you like to a public inquiry , they can’t prosecute you for perjury.

    At a Coroner’s Inquest into Dr David Kelly’s Death witnesses will have to appear, will have to answer questions such as, why was his body moved from the time it was found by walkers to the time it was ‘officially found’ by searchers. The Police will have to explain why they evicted his wife from her home long before his body was found and then stripped wallpaper from the walls of his house.

    Why was the body not even there , in the position in which it was found by those walkers, 45/50 mins before ,when the heat seeking helicopter scanned that exact same position?? Where was it??!!

    Odd, isn’t it? Dr Kelly said we should not go to war because Iraq was very unlikely to have wmd and that the claim (put forward as we now know by alastairc) that iraq had wmd which could be deployed against us in 45 mins. was false. That has long since been proved to be true!!! alastairc has been proved to be a liar hasn’t he??!!

    alastairc, bliar and the no10 spinners went to great lengths to discredit Dr Kelly, even though we now know that he was not only a very honorable man but an extremely truthful one!!!!

    Shockingly! He was suddenly dead! ( suicide they said and backed that up with the hutton whitewash) And then early into the Iraq War we found out that he was right!!!

    We don’t need any more public whitewashes!!!!

    We need a proper legally controlled Coroner’s Inquest where all witnesses must give evidence under oath.

    Let’s just for once listen to alastairc, scrattystarlet, bliar, broon and the rest ( including hoon who threatened to “tell the real story of drdavidkelly when bliar proposed to dump him”) tell their fairystories under oath knowing if they lie, they face charges of perjury!!!!

    Blair named as Liberty Medal winner

    Tony Blair has been named by the US National Constitution Centre as the winner of its prestigious Liberty Medal for 2010.

    The former prime minister will receive his gong – awarded for “his steadfast commitment to conflict resolution” – from the Centre’s chairman Bill Clinton on September 13 in Philadelphia.

    Previous recipients of the medal include Nelson Mandela, who won jointly with his predecessor as South African president FW de Klerk in 1993, Mikhail Gorbachev, Lech Walesa, US presidents Jimmy Carter, George Bush Sr and Bill Clinton, U2 singer Bono and film-maker Steven Spielberg.

    Announcing the award, which comes with 100,000 US dollars in prize money, the Centre cited Mr Blair’s role in advancing peace in Northern Ireland, his work as an international envoy in the Middle East, his involvement in initiatives to improve governance in Africa and tackle climate change, and the work of the Tony Blair Faith Foundation.

    Mr Clinton said: “It was a privilege to work with my friend Tony Blair to help end 30 years of sectarian violence and broker a lasting peace in Northern Ireland, to stop the killing in and mass exodus from Kosovo, and to develop policies that would improve living conditions for people in both our countries.

    “Now, as a private citizen, Tony continues to demonstrate the same leadership, dedication and creativity in promoting economic opportunity in the Middle East and the resolution of conflicts rooted in religion around the world, and is building the capacity of developing nations to govern honestly and effectively.”

    Thanking the Centre, Mr Blair said: “Freedom, liberty and justice are the values by which this medal is struck. Freedom, liberty and justice are the values which I try to apply to my work on governance in Africa and on preparing the Palestinians for statehood. They are the values which drive the work of my faith foundation as we try to show that people of different faiths can live together constructively in peace and harmony.”

    An even better “comedy moment”

    Leicester’s lord mayor has apologised after his trousers fell down during an educational event for schoolchildren.

    Councillor Colin Hall was at Southfields library in the city to take part in a Global Education function.

    When he stood to give a vote of thanks at Tuesday’s event his trousers came loose and fell.

    A spokesman for Mr Hall said: “The lord mayor has offered his deepest apologies to those attending the event for any offence caused by the accident.”

    I see the BBC gave way to temptation last night on NN and a debate on the recent budgets possible affect on employment featured our old friend, the one and only, David Blanchflower. I missed the first part of the exchange, but still heard Danny (as he was mistakenly and hilariously called by one contributor) Boy demand that he be heard in complete and utter silence. He was speaking from his campus site in Dartmouth and, if it wasn’t for the impression, possibly false, that this was his first BBC outing since May 7th, the suspicion is that a special transatlantic studio has been established for him. I still think he’s mostly of interest because of his weird divorce claim.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
