Devine Retribution

Jim Devine has just been found guilty of two counts of false accounting. A real wrong ‘un finally getting justice.

It was Paul Hutcheon at the Herald that got the scoop, The Sunlight Centre who put the boot in:


and Krishnan Guru-Murthy who put the final nail in the coffin:

Guido will be down there in four weeks for the sentencing. See you there.

    The right result – but the judge is waiting on the pre sentence report before indicating what sennence Devine gets.

    In other words – Devine will get off on a ‘too stupid to incarcerate in the prison system’ excuse.

    There’s probably a bar in the commons where the dr*nks are served in plastic cups and there are no sharp edges for ‘special’ MPs like him to wait in. Until they are dragged bodily through the aye or nay lobby, then plonked back in the bar out of harms way.

    The scene: A cell in HMP Slade.
    Characters: Fletcher (Eric Illsley), Godber (David Chaytor) The scottish one (Jim Devine).

    Illsley: Right mates, votes for prisoners – are we for it or against it?

    Chaytor: I can’t see the point myself. What difference are a few votes from prisoners going to make? There’s only three of us!

    Devine: Don’t be so naive, Godber, haven’t you learned anything after 30 years in the labour party? Haven’t you heard of prison overcrowding?

    Chaytor: How do you mean, Jim?

    Illsley: Look, all we have to do is phone up the electoral commission and say there are 12 of us living in each cell – make up some names – ‘Aitken’ will do.

    Devine: They’ll never come in here and check. Jenny Watson is an old friend. If we pull this trick for every cell, that should be enough to swing the Slade consitituency in our favour!

    Chaytor: Oh yeah – and then we can start the campaign for more early releases!

    ‘Disgraced former Labour MP Jim Devine has failed to pay his ex-office manager Marion Kinley any money despite an employment tribunal Judge ordering compensation of £35,000 due to her winning a case of constructive dismissal against the former Livingston Labour MP.
    Solicitors working on behalf of Marion Kinley are now stepping up the pressure in the hope that they can secure her financial settlement by blocking any sale of Devine’s house’.

    Any more on this story about the thieving git ? or any thing on the BBC
    about the BBC college of journalisms blogger F Foxy’s involvement =

    The Employment tribunal heard how the former Scottish Labour MP got his friend Fiona Fox to call his ex-office manager Ms Kinley under the pretence of being a reporter.
    Miss Kinley said of the hoax phone call: “The message is still on my phone. A woman said she was a freelance reporter for the Sunday Telegraph, and she was doing a big piece on MPs’ expenses, in particular on Jim Devine’s secretary.”
    Miss Kinley realised the call was a set-up when she came across an email from Fox to Devine, which read: “Your secretary called me back and then put the phone down – hope you’ve put her out of her misery – remind me never to work for you!!”

    Let’s not forget his other character flaws, which we campaigning against him were not allowed to mention on the doorstep. Drunk driving conviction(5 year ban); allegations of spousal assault; and a gambling addiction.

    Representing a constituency without an horse-racing course, he twice championed the rights of on-course bookies in parliament.

    He was enthusiastically supported by the then Labour council leader, Graeme Morrice, now representing Devine’s constituency; you really have to question our current MP’s judgement.

    You must be talking about Jonathan Aitken.

    I would not classify any of those in the current batches being processed through the courts as decent or honourable.

    I think that he’s probably going to need protection when he’s gaoled, and possibly after he gets out…

    I was advised to move my stationary money to the stationery cupboard. The cupboard was full of brown envelopes full of receipts. But it is unacceptable to suggest that any of the receipts were written out by myself or by any person in my employ.
    Having listened to this interview, it is amazing that a guy like this was actually an MP:

    Okay, starting from the basic sentence that anything below £17,500 entails a 21 month sentence then that is the suggested miniimum that he will get. Now we add aggravating circumstances such as his lying, his not guilty plea, his blaming his office manager – that must add another 12 months at least. Then we need to take into account :

    The amount involved
    The use to which money was put (spending on the things he bought is more ‘venal’ than on basic necessities)
    Breach of position trust
    The period over which and the persistence with which the fraud was carried out
    Any Voluntary repayments (none apparantly)
    Personal factors such as illness, disability, family difficulties, etc

    All of which add more to the sentence. Mildly putting it -there is no way at all that he is NOT going to prison. In R v Kefford (Mark James) [2002] 2 Cr. App. R. (S.) 106 Kefford had no previous convictions and the moment the fraud was uncovered he made a full confession and sold his house to repay the money yet he still attracted a 4 month jail sentence.

    My guess is that Devine is probably looking at a 24 month sentence, given the betrayal of public trust and abuse of position and may serve 10 months if he repays all the cash or complies with Proceeds of Crime Act, before being relesed on Home Detention Curfew (tag). Everything now depends really upon the probation service’s pre sentence report and then I suspect it’s time for Sunny Jim to learn how to pick the soap up without exciting the John Hirst’s of the prison system.

    Not amazing if you actually live here and know the types of people who vote labour. The general standard of voters intelligence here is definitely third world.

    You’re right. Livingston is very sectarian, created as a result of the Glasgow Clearances i.e. they knocked down the slums and had to have somewhere to put them.
    The majority voting in Livingston and surrounding areas are orange men(extremist protestants often seen marching in sashes and bowler hats); yet Labour has such a pull on the limited Neanderthal West Lothian intelligence. They still voted for a corrupt, alcoholic, allegedly wife-beating, banned driver and gambling addicted catholic, rather than the fragrant SNP candidate, whose husband is a descendant of John Knox himself.

    EXPENSES cheat MP Jim Devine is today exposed as a foul-mouthed bully who tried desperately to hide his boozing and gambling from voters.

    Former aide Marion Kinley – who Devine tried to smear with hints of an affair and claims of a vendetta against him – breaks her silence to reveal the truth about the disgraced politician. Devine faces jail after being convicted last week of fiddling his Westminster expenses…………….

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.”
