5 Things You Should Know About the Shadow Justice Secretary

Sadiq Khan has somewhat controversially been made the Shadow Justice Secretary by Red Ed. He was  also put in charge of constitutional and political reform, which is ironic. A relative unknown before his promotion there are all sorts of mysteries about the man that  Guido feels need some light shedding on them…

  • Did you know that Khan has been exposed three times for fiddling his expenses, even after the public outcry last year? Using a thief to catch thief?
  • Did you know that five members of Khan’s family and various clients belonged to fundamentalist group Hizb ut-Tahrir? Something he called “irrelevant” and “trivial” Well they must be proud of his line of work…
  • Did you know Khan got the bent copper Ali Dizaei off the hook. He was later jailed in Wandsworth Prison, in Khan’s own constituency.
  • Did you know Khan tried to join the defence team of Zacarias Moussaoui, the only person convicted of the 9/11 attacks. The US government refused him clearance. As they did over a Guantanamo suspect’s trial. What do the Americans know about Khan?
  • Did you know Khan voted for post office closures at 7pm in Parliament and spoke out against closures at 8pm in a public meeting in his constituency? What was that about two faced liars…

Come back next week for five more facts that raise serious questions about the new Labour leader’s judgement…

            OK LM. Got your post but only just. Understand the problem and sorry for my rudeness when I thought you had pulled out.

            Substantively, the fact that Khan is Muslim is not “the only reason for this story”. It is about repeated expenses cheating, unacceptable whatever faith or none; incompatable representations made to different audiences, OK a political staple but still not on; some worrying links that are too close to base to ignore; then two points, one of which is tangentally linked to Islam. If the other is linked (Dizaei), then it raises more questions than it answers.

            It is my opinion that there is too much that is unsavoury about this man, before the issue of faith raises its contentious head, for him to be in his new job. Given the very well publicised expenses scandal, it is not good enough just to have clean hands, one has to be seen to be so.

            Mr Khan has failed in that essential respect, it seems to me.

        It also tells us something (that we knew already) about the Labour party, whose parliamentary party elected him to the shadow cabinet.

        Not that any of this matters; MiniMiliband and Co are just a shadow-play, Labour’s initial rictus after defeat, that can never lead to re-election. Going by Labour’s oerformance after their last defeat, and the Tories’ after theirs, we have two or more leaders to come before they get themselves into shape.

        So ignore all of this – it signifies nothing, beyond confirming what we knew already about the fundamental corruption of Labour. My worry is that CallMeDave may be harbouring one similarly challenged in the integrity department, a former News of the Screws ‘journalist’. That matters far more, as – unlike the rubber-faced Ed – Dave is actually the PM.

      Addressing the audience as a guest speaker, she gave a damning account of standards in schools, saying education had been “so dumbed down that even the children know it.”

      The board of governors at St Michael and All Angels Church of England Academy in Camberwell, south London, told Miss Birbalsingh to stay away from the school while they considered her position. But the French teacher and deputy head was told yesterday evening that she would be allowed to return to the classroom on Monday after parents voiced their support. In her speech on Tuesday, Miss Birbalsingh told delegates of a “broken” system which “keeps poor children poor”. “

        If this has been reported correctly, I find it deeply troubling. She was only allowed back as a result of support from parents?? However, had they instead been a bunch of baying lefties out for her blood then presumably this lady would still be under suspension and probably facing the end of her career?

        Since when have parents been the final arbiters in what is perceived to have been a disciplinary matter? More to the point, when are those who made this ridiculous decision going to be held to account?

    So, three out of five criticisms relate to his defence work as a solicitor. While I take it that you would be far happier had his legal career consisted of suing little old ladies, or making exorbitant sums in the City, you do realise, don’t you, that legal ethics 101 states that you don’t deny someone legal representation just because they might be guilty. Our criminal justice system is based on both sides putting the best case they possibly can, and letting the jury decide. It is not surprising that a defense lawyer takes on dodgy clients – it goes with the territory.

    Try harder next time. You have three instances of expense abuses and so decide to attack him for obeying the ethical norms of his profession?

    (That’s not to say there are no rules, of course. If you know your client is lying – claiming he is innocent at trial while privately admitting he is guilty – you can get in serious trouble.

    Under “Big Society Dave”

    A dinner lady was warned she could be accused of ‘grooming’ a primary school pupil after she gave him a biscuit.

    Pat Lavery, a catering supervisor, handed the boy a biscuit after he asked for one. The child and the woman are related.

    But the following day, she was warned that her action could be interpreted under child protection legislation as ‘grooming’ the child for sexual exploitation.

    By the way, while everyone was watching the conference, the Home Office transferred the power to monitor all the internet use in the British Isles to a European Internal Security Agency, ( The National Police Agency).

    The clever part of this extension of surveillance by the EU was to have it set up as an ‘Independent Child-protection Agency’ first. This meant that there was no, I say again no, protests when power to monitor every ‘Internet Communication’ in the country was first created.

    This transfer of power and responsibility was so profound that three members of the governing body resigned. They know that this new arrangement will not aid Child-protection but detract from it, adding to the powers that the EU state agencies have in Britain, without practical benefit.

    Added to the VOSA, EU (uk) Border Agency, the Serious Organised Crime Agency, The Financial crimes Agency, the Environment Agency this makes five EU policing organisations working in the country not one of which is accountable the the British people.

      What you state may be true but I doubt it very much indeed.

      Yes, we know that there are prominent muslim leaders that have stated that they intend to effectively take over Europe some time in the future. If they had said this 30 years ago, we would have laughed. We are not laughing now. The question is WHY are we taking this idea even half seriously?

      However, and this is one hell of a big HOWEVER, these so called Muslim leaders would not have the slightest chance of achieving their stated aim, or even the slightest chance of even seeming to have a chance of doing so, if our own ESTABLISHMENT did not wish this to be the case.

      This country has had pass Imperial connections all over this planet, yet only a very small minority of them were between Muslim countries. There is no logical reason why we should have anymore then a very small amount of Muslims living/existing within these ISLANDS, higher birth rate or not.

      If the establishment did not want there to be an ever increasing amount of Muslims in this country, there would not be an ever increasing amount of Muslims living in this country. In fact there would not be any illegal or hardly any legal immigrants living in this country from any other nation, if the establishment did not want there to be.

      As many of you may already know I strongly believe that 9/11 and 7/7 were to a vital extent INSIDE JOBS. If they had happened entirely due to some kind of wholly Muslim based conspiracy, Muslim immigration into the UK would have been stopped by 8/7. It was not, because the establishment wish us to live in fear of our lives, and blame other ordinary people for this situation.

      Why our own establishment would so desperately want such a thing, is open to some speculation. The thing to remember is that this situation is not in any way new. All but the oldest of us have lived with the fear of either imminent death from a Nuclear Holocaust, or a Terrorist attack all of our entire lives. Those old enough to remember a time when they were not being constantly reminded about the dangers of being roasted alive by a Nuclear attack, or blown to bits by an IRA nail bomb by the BBC/MSM, had one or two world wars to concern themselves about instead.

      You may recall, that during the seventies at the time of IRA bombings on the mainland, no serious attempt was made to control Irish Catholic immigration into the UK. Some MP’s and Lords at the time did propose such an obviously logical move, but they were completely ignored. I hope at least some of you now know why.

The muslim way of life should be respected and given freedom to thrive but there are limits and anyone believing that it’s inevitable they will ultimately ‘takeover’ the UK are deluding themselves and misleading the rest.

        You regularly suggest that 9/11 and 7/7 were ‘inside muslim conspiracies’ quasi sanctioned by the governments…ours and the states…to somehow cow their respective publics into subdued fear and thus be subservient to their whims thereafter. Cynical as I might be Atlas that view is nonsense.

    Having heard the clarion call to use English grammer and punctuation better , or even at the basic level CW is of course above suspicion , but not beyond tuition .Which brings me nicely on tonights composting conondrum , that being University tution fees . Yes in the finkletimes , its been hammered out (hammer and sickle more like) that, wait ofr it , “better off graduates are to pay more than less well off ones ”
    CW is reminded of the maxim , once is an error , twice is coincidence and three is some action . I had rather thought we had learnt from earlier in the week that polices that seem byzantine cause the middle class to have a headache .
    I agree it is a problem , but why is it a problem ? and why is there nothing contemplating the future better ?

    The first thing perhaps is for universities to start doing some proper accounts , not the stingy down to pencil sharpners sort, but the sort that says how much work do university employees do and costs of shared core functions , I might add that weak A levels perhaps make necessary part A level aspects to be tutored , but ime not that judgemental on this topic.
    We have basically buildings which are open in term times , at 9am and close at 5pm mon to fri with , various assistants and offfice functions as well as tutors .
    So quite a few functions occure in teaching , and the non direct tutor functions . Most univerities have got the hang of making canteen functions value and pay for themselves , some have even tried to do concerts and dinners , but still this stubborn problem of massive overheads and part time annual/weekly use .

    Perhaps it is time to consider if universities should do all forms on non technician training , by renting rooms to certain specialist groups , or by running weekend courses for certain qualifications , basically think of building optomisation , or start running smaller interest courses in different way.

    looking to the future , quite a few parents would perhaps like to save for further education , combination of regualr or lump sums over a long period , so why not set up a savings bank , unique to purpose so no casino antics , offer a decent interest rate , should have low overheads as its only a deposite account to run perhaps give tax relief, say open accounts at 7yrs old and make payments in university years (not a lump sum but say 3 payments each sept) straight to university on pre published tution fees for duration of university stay . That way as soon as school lever has had UCCAS and place confirmed , they know how much they have to pay , and savings account then pays univeristy . Details like dropping out , or underpayment can be a finance matter but after 10yrs of saving I would have thought tution fees would be at least 50% paid even from less well off families .
    If they dont want to go to university then return money to parents form whence it came , or if gap year is required leave a yr , either way account should be closed at a 19. let rest of pecularites sort it out themsleves , older students and sponsorhsips etc . Dont forget Alevel students can earn but would leave it in parental control being as they will be putting in in pre and teen ages .

    Oh and stop rogers from making anymore glass prsion cells that are cattle like tuiton rooms , perhaps make unis have there own cash reserves from legacies or sponsorship that they cant touch , but can only borrow against to a fixed limit that way they should stay stable even when blowing money on ridculus buildings for fantasical media study and stop all goverment funding to them , but not authority to do somthing if its being badly run .
    I still believe student days should be an important and free part of a persons life , with uni sports and bars etc .

    In between why not have a dedicated scratch card (like olympics) to run until savings scheme kicks in and if you start withis yrs 7 yr olds in 10yrs time can offload whole lot , and no more impaired loans (well small ones perhaps) but should look after itself

    Certainly in my village they are. There’s now virtually no street lighting between midnight and 5.30 a m.
    Took a look at the County Council’s website and was cheered up no end to find that they’re under no legal obligation to provide any such illumination at all.

    Oh So Negative BBC says:

    TheBBC news is just so negative about everthing and I am getting fed up with it.

    for example they aretrying to dig up every reason why this child benefit cut for higher earners will not work and that is what they keep announcing every 15 minutes.

    Fair enough if that is true but at 7.15 this morning they had an “expert” on to explain that the system was simple and easy, very easy to administer and it did NOT require co-operation between departments. In a nutshell the stay at home mum keeps on claiming child benefit so as to keep her pension credits for later life, then on the tax form her high earning partner declares by ticking a box that she is drawing this benefit and his taxcode is adjuted accordingly to claw back the benefit. It really is that simple. Yet 10 mins later the BBC resort back to their mantra saying that the system is unworkale.

      Once you realise that the BBC as a Corporate Body is institutionally anti-Tory and by default therefore anti-Coalition and that they are basically cheerleaders for Labour and always have been you will start to understand that anything they report has to be viewed as not 100% factually unbiased.

      They also selectively edit what they will report and will often headline coming BBC Programmes as Breaking News when in fact what they are indulging in is a “Promo” for their programming.

      Their bias is so blatant now that their news and current affairs reporting should be viewed with a high dose of scepticism

    The Government may yet scale back its planned public spending cuts if economic conditions worsen, a Cabinet minister has suggested.

    Chris Huhne, the Liberal Democrat Energy Secretary, said the coalition might have to “tack about” if circumstances altered before the Budget next spring.

    There are fears among some that Britain is still susceptible to a double-dip recession and that the £83 billion cuts programme to be outlined in the comprehensive spending review on October 20 could make matters worse.

    They can’t even run a fiddle without getting themselves nabbed. Their party is financially broke (can’t even run their own show without bringing financial ruin on themselves).

    Their only plan seems to be to sell anybody or anything just to raise a few bob.

    The proof of their plight if any was needed is that the lame duck un-elected coalition with all its warts and boils looks a positively attractive proposition.

    The connection I am making is that Westminster is not fit for purpose and what ever they advise it would be prudent to do the exact opposite.

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”



Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
