Khan “In Touch” On Prisons

“By abolishing indeterminate sentences, the Government shows how out of touch they are on crime and law and order” screams a press release from Labour’s Sadiq Khan. Something he must know rather a lot about given that this week we learn that a third personal friend has done time in Wandsworth nick – the prison in his very own constituency. Khan used an interview with the Standard to put a positive spin on yet another dodgy connection:

“Shadow justice minister Sadiq Khan was being shown around Wandsworth Prison by the governor when a voice rang out from behind the locked gates: “Saadiq! Saadiq!” Mr Khan stopped instantly in his tracks. Only childhood friends pronounced his name in that way. “I spun round,” recalled Mr Khan, “and I recognised him straight off as one of my best friends from when I was 12 and lived on the Henry Prince Estate in Tooting. We used to play football and cycle round together for hours.”

Was his other childhood friend Babar Ahmed there too?  We are still waiting for an explanation from Khan about his relationship with a chum who just happened to build a couple of websites for Chechen and Afghan insurgents. Silence…

The press release  goes on: “the public want to be protected from serious violent offenders and safe in the knowledge that they won’t be released from prison.”  Is that not a bit rich coming from a man who spent most of his life before parliament trying to get dangerous types freed?  Sadiq wasn’t very tough on crime when he was helping Hizb-ut-Tahrir’s Reza Pankhurst. Then we had his cosy love in with Ali Dizaei, maybe he could become an advisor on policing? Either way he’s certainly “in touch” on prisons…

    How long before Sadiq ends up in prison?

    Billy Bowden is the greatest umpire ever ! says:

    and also Labour did introduce 3000 more laws/offences so nowadays the only people that get away with breaking law is politicons and bankers!

    MPs are protected under paliamentry privilage so have free speech, wdo not and bankers can get away with ponzi scheme after ponzi scheme and after being bailed out by people earning 24k (avarage wage) yet still take there multi million pound pay cheque.

    All in it together?

    Funny how Bankers, Hedge Fund Owners, Freemasons, Israelites, Neo Cons, tax avoiders etc all do a good job avoiding prison when they have supported wars that have bankrupted the economy. However, nick a pair of trainers……….

    The friend and “lawyer” of inmates

    Not the only bent lawyer around

    Half the solicitors of the City oif London have made and continue to make bloody millions out of crooks

    Do I have to give the list starting with the oligarchs ?!

    But given that Empty Ed has just given responsibility to a non dom member of the Levy clique

    At the time of generalised corruption in the British system (including the theft of the rogue Prescott and Mandy!!)

    Why should we be surprised ?

    I want more Muslims in Parliament. There will always be a place in my Government for a progressive like Mr Khan.

    Ali Allawi says:

    Islamic Civilisation collapsed many years ago

    Just read this


    What with generalised female circumcision, abuse of women, generalised violence in the name of Islam (including against fellow Islamists), we are faced with the real collapse of Islam,

    But how are these people going to replace it ?

    He wants darkies let out simply because there’s no evidence against them?

    Clearly this is unacceptable to “libertarians”.

    kleegish says:

    Khan bemoans the fact that, as he says the number truly is, about two-thirds of prisoners cannot read nor write English, even those who speak no other language. What does this say about the state of primary education? Those illiterate prisoners can’t ALL be just-arrived immigrants, can they? And before the politically-correct hordes descend, this rhetorical question is about education, not immigration.

    You are hypocrital wankers Guido and Neo-Guido

    Bollocks, where convicted and senteced for a crime you should be given a tarriff!

    Be it, 5 years,50 years or life.

    Once that is served then the person should be released

    Unless you have a mod-bypass system, in which case you can post what you like. I’ll not tell you how, though, because you sound like the sort to abuse it.

    nell says:

    I suspect he’s referring to British prisoners rather than foreign one’s who can’t read or write in English.

    Big question is , what did labour do about it that 13 years they were in power? And why after that does the problem still exist?

    I thought the labour mantra for their time in power was ‘education education education’!!!!

    The Paragnostic says:

    Style? Glasgow style, with a knife up his arsehole…

    I suspect khan is about as ‘in touch’ with the public’s view on our justice system as his buddy chukka is ‘in touch’ with the views and concerns of the embattled business community!

    The Paragnostic says:

    The bankruptcy of the economy wasn’t caused by the wars, it was caused by socialists spending too much of other peoples money on their grandiose schemes to create a client class that would vote for them in perpetuity.

    It failed.

    Get over it.

    Upchuck Yomama – another bloody lawyer.

    Why do we have so many lawyers in Parliament? Isn’t it a conflict of interest for those who make the laws to be those who profit from there being so many laws?

    What a pathetic blog post. A bit of vague dot-connecting and that’s it. Bullingdon types don’t usually have connections among people who have done time, because they and the people they associate with, their parents sort of own the police, courts and prisons, no?

    Anonymous says:

    seems Khan has forgotten that he left the council estate whilst still in primary school. He lived in a nice terraced house in Tooting Bec. Didn’t know the mean streets like his oldest siblings. I should know, I knew his family growing up. Does he think lying about where he comes from will make him look like a tough guy.

    They are starting to use lawyers instead of rats in laboratory experiments. There are three advantages to this:

    1) There are more lawyers than rats.
    2) Lab assistants don’t develop emotional attachments to lawyers.
    3) Lawyers will do things that rats won’t even consider.

    He was a solicitor.

    I suppose he might have decided that his clients were guilty, and not tried as hard to defend them.

    But I thought that that was up to the justice system, not the solicitor.

    Moddy Botty says:

    Bullindon Boys apparently payed for any damage done, fair enough, they should have had a police caution which would have given them a police record, any reason why not?

    Fuck off.

    I’m not going to be held responsible for what people who I knew when I was seven do with their lives, Fat Boy. Try harder.

    Never. Its still considered racist to hold Muslims accountable for there actions. ;-)

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.”
