          Council Insider says:

          This is another collaborative deal between senior officers in Portsmouth City Council and Hancock’s Libdems, to keep the LibDems in power. That the police have not been called in is indicative. This scam has been set up to syphon off political donations for the LibDems so that they stay in power, keep bringing the asylum seekers in for money, so that the officers can continue receiving their huge salaries that the LibDems have given them. A classic example of the poor taxpayer being ripped off by people who are supposed to be representing them.

          • Former Colleague says:

            Well said Insider. Some of the deals and scams set up by the current administration are now beginning to emerge. Salaries of senior Council officers have grown out of all proportion (approved by Councillors). Salaries and allowances of Councillors have crept up steadily (approved by Officers). Portsmouth is a poor city and with so many households on benefit, so many students paying no Council Tax and so many asylum seekers, the whole burden of these costs fall on the remaining ratepayers. Meanwhile the LibDems are still raking in cash from unidentifiable sources that they continue to spend freely on campaigning and propaganda to keep the city under their control.

    If it’s confirmed that the bbc actively covered up abuse by two of its employees, I can’t see how on earth it can retain its broadcasting licence. This puts phone hacking in the shade. What News International did was disgraceful illegal actions over the period of a decade, but what the bbc did was covering up horrific crimes for a total of 80 years! This should spell the end of the bbc.

    There are more important facts coming out about the Beeboids and child abuse which they are apparently reluctant to report,wonder why not?.
    This endearing title of AUNTIE is now wearing a bit thin considering what is now being exposed.
    Serious questions now need to be asked as to who knew what within the Beeboids.
    If it is found that the beeboids where complicit in this abuse,you tell me what should happen to bunch of assholes who went along with this kiddy abuse.
    My take on this is that anyone who exploites kids for their own gratification is the lowest of the low.

      Mind how you go !! says:

      All officers carrying tasers must have had suitable training and have been authorised by the Chief Constable to carry one just like a real firearm…they are not issued willy-nilly to ordinary beat officers The action has to be justified subsequently and the officer can be liable to disciplinary action if found to have discharged his/her weapon irresponsibly. A clear warning ” STOP !! Armed Police….Taser !!”MUST be given just like when a real firearm is used before it can be discharged unless in exceptional circumstances an officer is in immediate fear for his/her life or it is considered the safest way for officer to subdue suspect to both safeguard themselves and public from injury i.e. in the case of a drunk carrying a samurai sword….of course it helps if you correctly identify the suspect.
