    Justice Stinks says:

    Chris Carter

    On Monday 16th January, 2012 the High Court of Justice in Northern Ireland certified that it was satisfied that there are no points of law of general importance involved in the decision given on 14th February, 2011 and refused leave for Mr. Carter to appeal to the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom.
    Mr. Carter was imprisoned in Magheraberry High Security prison on 29th January 2012. He had faced a 47 day jail term for non payment of fines and costs, although he was released after just three days when his fine was paid following an Internet campaign.
    It has been noted that the three Lord Justices who heard Mr. Carter’s appeal were all members of the Privy Council. Furthermore, the legislative Instrument which imposed the Smoke Free Restrictions in Northern Ireland is The Smoking (Northern Ireland) Order 2006 No. 2957 (N.I.20). This Order was approved by the Privy Council held by the Queen at Buckingham Palace on 14th November 2006. Counsellors present included The Lord President of the Council (Rt Hon Baroness Amos), Sir Brian Leveson (now Lord Leveson) and Elish Angiolini.
    In such circumstances a fair minded and informed member of the public would surely ask whether individuals who are members of a legislative body (Privy Council) should also be permitted to sit in judgement of transgressors of the legislation that body approves? For as Montesquieu pointed out:
    there is no liberty if the powers of judging is not separated from the legislative and executive.
    It should be noted that in July 2010, Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon announced Baroness Amos’ appointment to the role of Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator.
    Sir Brian Leveson now Chairs the Phone-hacking inquiry where he sits alongside Sir David Bell, former Trustee of Common Purpose. In 2002 David Bell was a Global Compact Advisory Council Member at the United Nations.

    Dr Livingstone said King was suffering from a depressive illness and extreme anxiety and agitation, and the stress of the proceedings and allegations of she was facing made it impossible for her to make a statement other than the one prepared by his accountant, which he will be publishing in due course. He said she felt feelings of abandonment by the Labour party and shame that her career was over.

        Clue: it’s also a group of people who are infamously corrupt when it comes to helping each other out. And there are quite a lot of them in the cities that were mentioned in the article.

    I thought me and Dianne were really good on Question Time last night. It was just like the BBC said it would be – there would be rapturous applause every time we opened our mouths. The BBC said that because we’re not very clever, it would be best not to get involved in reasoned discussion but to stick to juvenile rhetoric because the audience would love it. The best part was the bit about the housing benefit cap and it gave me the chance to call it ethnic cleansing and to compare it to the holocaust. The audience absolutely loved it.

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.”
