Ken’s Crony Crow Sues and Loses

PA is reporting that Bob Crow has lost his libel action against Boris:

“The general secretary of the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT) had complained about leaflets produced for Mr Johnson’s campaign for re-election in May. He said they meant that his policies, leadership of the RMT and association with Mr Johnson’s predecessor, Ken Livingstone, seriously damaged Mr Livingstone’s electoral prospects and caused grave harm to Londoners’ interests.

Mr Crow also claimed they meant that he was part of and supported a culture of political immorality involving broken promises, cronyism, scandals and waste. But Mr Justice Tugendhat, at the High Court, ruled today that the words complained of were not capable of being defamatory of the union leader.”

    Time for Ken Livingston to sue Bob Crow. How dare Crow suggest that being associated with Ken ‘supported a culture of political immorality involving broken promises, cronyism, scandals and waste.’.

    I would like to thank all 17 of the 56 G4S staff that bothered to turn up for work in Manchester this morning
    and a big thank you to the 35 out of 150 who turned up for work in Newcastle
    We have plenty of spare police officers doing nowt that can make up the “Back-Fill security”

    What was Bob Crow complaining about? Surely it’s in his interests to be viewed by everybody as a bullying thug?

    If you look at the police force across the entire country you’ll find that their absenteeism levels equate with G4s.

    We’re just experiencing the real world once you take out bubblenomics. We’ll have to get economic growth the old fashioned way, like making stuff and providing a service. Fat chance though becuase most people would rather sit at home, watch Jeremy Kyle or drink Special Brew on a park bench.

    Talking of words not to be used,
    ‘Olympics organisers have warned businesses that during London 2012 their advertising should not include a list of banned words, including “gold”, “silver” and “bronze”, “summer”, “sponsors” and “London”.’
    This is to be enforced by 300 officers across Britain.
    Nice one Sebby.

    But Bob is a highly intelligent man. He took an IQ test and it just registered into double figures.

    Don’t imagine Crow funded it himself…..

    ‘Thug’ implies some sort of physical and mental ability to intimidate, whereas Bob Crow is merely an old blob of fat, twisted, bitter, weak and moronic.

    Nonsense on stilts. I cannot see that being upheld in a court.

    The Paragnostic says:

    I think the theory is that the threat of action will be enough to discourage most “offenders” – the whole thing has the stink of corruption hanging over it, but then again it was Blair’s vanity project and bugger the consequences.

    DAVE waste of space CAMERON says:

    What about the taxi and limo drivers who are not even allowed inside the zone
    the official drop off point is a twenty minute walk from the stadium
    but BMW have supplied 4000 cars and drivers to ferry people about for the duration with no PSV docs etc ?
    all the Olympic “Family , staying 9 miles from the stadium (18mile round trip per person)adding to the conjestion
    many businesses kicked out of their premises , with no chance of compensation
    many others forced to relocate
    The adverse effect on the economy could far out weigh the small financial benefit for the few corporate sponsors who put in just 10% of the total cost
    i hope this farce gets disrupted

    The legislation will have been agreed by the government back whenever the bid was agreed.

    Agree.

    The Bob Crow School of Law applies here. It would meet the same fate in court as today’s judgment.

    He should have gone with a Guido-style imaginary lawsuit instead. Much cheaper and far less embarrassing.

    My opinion, for what it is worth, is that whereas government can pass any law it so pleases, things reach a state where it is unworkable.

    Every place name in the UK could have been banned from mention by law but clearly it would simply be ignored. One or two judges might consider attempting to uphold it but it would be immediately swept away by a superior court.

    The government could legislate that no one was to breathe oxygen with similar effect.

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.”
