The Queen Speaks

Given that it was Elliot and Hanning’s last tome on Dave that revealed how a mysterious call from Buckingham Palace had helped him get a foot in the door at Conservative Central Office, you don’t need much salt with their latest suggestion that Palace officials had warned the then Leader of the Opposition about employing Andy Coulson in Downing Street. Given he was the editor at the time William was hacked by Clive Goodman, it’s not hard to see why the were concerned…

With convenient timing their new book serialised in this morning’s Times also gives the first inkling as to how cringeworthy Dave’s texts to Brooks are going to be when they are revealed at Leveson. Allegedly texting her after the story had blown up last summer, “Charlie Brooks told friends” that Cameron said to “keep her head up and she’d get through her difficulties.” Hardly a killer blow, but red faces all round…

Oliver Letwin’s quote looks like the first attempt at a fightback: “If you are on the same side as her, you have to see her every week. This was how it worked.” Probably true, but unlike with Blair and Brown, Dave has a paper trail…

            Why do you think the Tory’s got hammered at the polls recently.

            Cameron refuses to answer PMQ’s and rages like a psycho instead. He says the govt will concentrate on growth without giving a single solid detail or policy on how he’ll achieve this, thinking the public will fail to notice that there hasn’t been any growth in 2 years.

            He gets himself embroiled in all sorts of innapropriate nonsense like this and thinks the public won’t notice providing he addresses the workforce of an Essex factory sans jacket.

            He’s all buzzwords and image. Prime ministerial he aint.

      For some reason, politicians turn to bankers rather than economists to tell them what to do about the economy. They made the same mistake in the first Great Depression. At best, bankers know about banking and will act in the interests of the banking sector. They know a bit about economics, but the same could be said of football club managers – both need to know something about economics as it affects their business. Admittedly, econonmists themselves tend only to be able to tell you what to do about the crisis of 1873 but they have more idea than bankers and, importantly, they are less partial. The theory seems to be that, because bankers handle large sums of money, they have some good monetary magic about them, which is rather like assuming that the CEO of Thames Water will know how to unblock your drain.

        What was very telling was what a representative from the CPS said about why the original allegations did not make it to trial. He said that they thought that, [in spite of overwhelming physical evidence], they did not think that the girl would be believed. Funnily enough, the CPS representative saying this on the ITV news last night, happened to be a Pakistani Muslim. … So I wonder why he thought that the girl would not be believed? /sarc

        The Social service, police and CPS are INFESTED with harmful, racist, political correctness. Had the suspects been white, they would have already been in jail for over two years now. Instead these PC infested organisations have allowed their perverted political beliefs place the interests of child rapists above the interests of Justice and above the interests of the victims, so as to “not harm community relations”.

            To: I am not Judging, But…, Of course the Catholic church had a serious and sickening problem with hiding and covering up paedophilia.

            However, can you point to ANY other organisation which has since been as open in accepting the reality of the problem and putting in place policies to tackle it, as the Catholic Church has?

            Islamic communities still practice incest and paedophilia as a matter of normality as our maternity hospitals can vouch for. With birth abnormalities within Islamic communities being far above that of the rest of the population.

            Even in other, non-religious organisations, child abuse continues and is covered up. Everything from child protection services to social services, the NHS, and elsewhere, there are paedophiles praying on children and too often, when allegations are made by the victim, or their families, nothing is done and the matter, quietly covered up if possible.

            Child abuse is not religion based, it is a sickness in some human beings.

    The message is totally lost….like your government.

    Sky, BBC, C4, Daily Mail, The Sun , The Express etc etc etc all reporting different stories in relation to QS..No focus, nor strategy.

    The Queens speech will focus on…take your pick depending which news or paper you read:-

    ..the family
    ..crime and jobs
    ..reforms
    ..the lords
    ..growth
    ..society
    …taxes
    ..etc etc …what a mess

    Every year before the queen’s speech that useless twat Dennis Skinner reels off a rehearsed joke that’s only been funny about once but which the media always orgasm over. Just once I wish someone in the chamber would fuck it up for him by shouting over him. Skinner will be furious that his traditional queen’s speech joke will have been spoiled. If any Tory mps are reading, do us a favour and shout something very loudly over Skinner and fuck up his day.

      Y’know there’s another angle to that story that’s beginning to bother me.

      There were apparently nearly fifty underage children caught up in this tragedy. each one of them must have had a legal guardian in the form of a parent, social worker, foster parent etc.

      Are we to assume that 50 such guardians were completely unaware that their children were missing school for a large part of time, missing for large period of time including late into evenings ,were taking in large amounts of alcohol that was making them ill and in two cases becoming pregnant? And did none of these sad children feel able to talk to any of the adults who were legally responsible for their upbringing?

      That sounds like 50 cases of extreme child neglect to me prosecutable under the law. So what is being done about these legal guardians?

        Nothing when the social services ‘look the other way’ for fear of upsetting community relations.

        Social services seem to prefer taking kids from decent, well cared for middle class families, to place into God-knows-what hell, and they exploit the secrecy of the family courts system to do it.

        From many of the horror stories I have heard, the best thing to look after kids in this country would be to shut down social services altogether and insist all parents attend good parenting classes run along the lines of “The Superanny” Jo Frost’s advice.
