    If Lord Prestwat could keep his job for walloping a pleb on camera in a fit of anger I don’t see why Mitchell should go just for call a policeman one. Or is it just expected of Labour Ministers they will act violently? If Cameron allows himself to be pushed around by the police (who lets face it have no great record when it comes to telling the truth) he should be the one going.

    disenfranchised says:

    This week has confirmed my belief in the dishonesty of most human beings Cat. You mention the discrepancies between UK police and politicians each seeking their pound of flesh, or trying to avoid it.
    Then we have the Savile saga where at the moment we spectators have to distinguish between those making visible allegations, saying they were subjected to Jimmy S’ pork sword or roaming fingers, and those jumping bandwagons who see possible financial killings yet choose to remain undercover/ anonymous and stir the pot.
    Suddenly Beeb ‘ celebrity’ gets a conscience and touchy / feely declarations of ‘tied hands’ and heartbreak now do the rounds in an attempt to excuse their culpability or implicate others.
    Leaving the UK many many years ago, though probably the best decision I ever made still does not avoid the heartache of realising just how low the integrity of my country has descended to.

    Reader says:

    “..while in interviews he is always at pains to stress that he has had many one-night stands, no one seems to have ever found a woman willing to admit to sleeping with him.

    Tim Blackmore, who worked with him on Radio 1, offers the theory that he is simply not interested in sex.

    “I went away with him all over the place, we would stay in hotels and so on, and not once did he ever express any kind of sexual interest in another person.”

    The BBC are flailing around trying to move the spotlight away from themselves. Looks like Hillsborough is the target.

    However, what was bum boy Bunham allowed to spout away on the BBC this morning when he and HIS Government did nothing over Hillsborough? In fact Jack Straw tried to kill off any investigation.

    Anyone want to take a bet that the people to lead the BBC’s investigations will be ex beeboids or Guardian hacks?

    Labour have yet to explain why they investigated yet did nothing. It was completely in their own interests to show what went on under a Tory government. Yet they did nothing at all. Incompetence or cover up? And a cover up of what?

    Why was that ?
    Andy Burnham must know. If he doesn’t, as you say, he could always ask Jack Straw. Or Tony Blair.

    Aydodge E. Scheisster QC says:

    Good luck trying to get all the money in his charitable trusts, unless there was some fraud involved in the setting-up of them. He probably was getting a relative pittance from them as an income whilst he was alive, probably to forestall anyone trying to sue him on some spurious ground or another (par for the course with a bizarro celebrity like him). Wouldn’t have bothered Sir Jimmy anyway, as he was undoubtedly a schnorer par excellence who probably never whipped out his wallet except when he absolutely had to do so (though you can be sure that was the only thing he didn’t whip out). The claim of his “daughter” has to be dealt with, though. After that, whatever’s left may not be worth the hassle of suing or defending, and one anticipates that, unlike Elvis or Michael Jackson, Sir Jimmy will not continue to earn money in perpetuity in a sufficient amount capable of paying claims as they arise, and the old legal maxim of “Here’s a bob, now shut your gob” will be employed.

    I considered that but came to the conclusion that it was really rather arcane and isolated for inclusion in my view. It certainly wasn’t possible for an uninformed member of the public to reach an objective view. Heseltine did seem to blow it up out of proportion for other reasons which became apparent later.

  92. 92


    Afraid its subject matter does not meet my criteria but implications do admittedly go further than that. I considered it but still think not.

    You will see that I am making a much wider point and even the inclusion of this would not alter the balance.

    Never let it be said that the police are not a credit to the country. I mean just because they couldn’t find a 12 year old girls’ dead body in a house after thoroughly searching it three times is a series of mistakes any police force could make, isn’t it?


    The police are not fucking plebs but sometimes they are fucking useless.

    If the Police are allowed to dictate who should be sacked from a Government position, it will lead us further into a Police state. They are meddling far too much in Government business (aided & abetted by the Labour Party, and the Unions).

    Rabk hypocrisy – over at the Scum today. In their early pages they hammer into Mitchell and of their expose – but a couple of pages later they write about Hillsborough.

    The Mainstream National Press are hoisted by their own hypocritical petard -They want Mitchell out over a minor spat, yet while they’re calling [being seen to be calling note.] for heads to roll over Hillsborough.

    Meanwhile the ‘Public interest’ is what they’re all trying to avoid.

    BTW – Several of the coppers involved in the Hillsborough [See Indy] cover up – have already been told that no matter what they will not be going to prison.

    The 4 pillars of the state – are cornered into throwing dirt at each other to ‘mislead the public’. And of course the Grand Masterly ‘get out’ always seems to be to blame the public in the end. e.g. Pension thefts – it was you the public who were at fault for not putting in enough funds in the beginning! [That was peddled by the likes of Alex Brummer in the D Mail some years ago] …

    Project Umubanio. Dreamed up a a cunning plan by the Tories to become the nice party and fronted up by Andrew Mitchell and his wife Sharon.

    No doubt their intentions were good as were those of the volunteers who went out to Rwanda every year.

    But it now turns out that Mitchell was like a lovesick schoolgirl in Jimmy Savile’s camper and was taken in by a charm offensive from a murderous tyrant who was using British foreign aid to maintain his evil rule.
    So much so that the day before he was shunted out of foreign and into the government whip job, he signed off against all official advice, a sixteen million pound gift to Rwanda. Well that should buy enough arms to keep the people under control and luxuries for their dictator.

Too bad he cannot now be made to dance the Tyburn jig; ‘twould be entertainment of a sort almost too jolly for a Puritan to be having, but I fain would suffer myself to be tempted into such merriment– “cruel necessity,” as it were, hath a way of overbearing one’s inhibition.

    I am grateful for that. I remember them all from the seventh one onwards so it was easier than it looks. I am acutely conscious of the way the pace of life has sped up in the last half century and measuring events by major scandals is valid because they really do happen more frequently now, even though in some ways they also become easier to detect with modern communications. It had been bugging me and so I did it in the hope that someone will pick it up and run with it. My role hopefully might therefore be regarded as a catalyst rather than a prime mover.

    My work was of course closely associated with the DPA and I took great pains to ensure we complied with it including restricting anyone, myself included, from holding casual copies of the database. The curious thing is that I cannot recall one single instance of either government checking or public enquiring before I effectively withdrew myself from the industry. The way a whole spate of data losses occurred in the 2000s showed that my approach was not generally followed by companies – but worse by government and local government.

    As regards FOI, I had already decided by the time of its introduction to sling my hook so I cannot claim to have had experience of it other than as a casual observer.

    Almost as stupid as allowing the state to be in charge of looking after patients through the NHS. The big problem with banks is the ‘too big to fail’ situation. In 1997 how much competition was there? Quite a lot, including many recently privatised banks like Northern Rock, Halifax, Abbey National, Bradford and Bingley, Alliance and Leicester. So many smaller banks until they amalgated later and became much too big to fail. Halifax merged with the Bank of Scotland in 2001 and then merged with Lloyds after the banking crisis started.

    And there were quite a few foreign acquisitions (such as RBS taking a huge chunk of ABN AMRO in 2007 and 10% of Bank of China in 2005) and foreign banks making UK acquisitions (like Santander) making the number of banks in the UK smaller but much bigger.

    Who was it but Labour who gave the green light for all these anti-competitive mergers and acquisitions that made the banking system so top heavy?

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
