Denis MacShane Apologises to all MPs
Blames “Hate Campaigns of the Offshore Owned Press”

Subject: RE: Backbench Business Debate – Tues 13th Nov – Child Sexual Exploitation

I asked for this debate along with Nicola and others as combating internal as well external trafficking of children, grooming, all forms of the sexualisation of childhood has been a campaign of mine and I was half-way through writing a book as the axe fell when the BNP complaint against me was upheld.

I apologise to all ex colleagues for once again allowing publicity on all the wretched expenses problems dating back to the old regime to surface. Thanks to all, led by the Father of the House, for the wonderful messages of solidarity, support and best wishes. I am winding up my office as fast as I can but helping staff and sorting 18 years of paper takes a day or two. An ex-mineworker friend from Rotherham wrote to say “I cannot condone but do not condemn.” I do condemn my stupidity and foolishness and the damage it has done to Parliament and its MPs who work far harder over longer hours and serve the people better than anyone else in public life despite the endless hate campaigns of the off-shore owned press. I wish you all the best and I urge you to support this debate and all future Parliamentary work to allow children and women to live in Britain without fear of sexual abuse or exploitation by men.

        Yeah what a scum bag, playing the “women” and “Paedo” scare cards to try and get his arse off the hook and then blaming the BNP for it all.
        If he was exposing some minor mis demeanour by the BNP he would be full of righteous indignation.
        INstead the BNP pulled his chain— good on them!
        He was the bastard who put his snout in the trough– Nick Griffin or other right wingers didnt force him

      I hope he has his day in court.

      Thinking that his alleged campaign against child abuse should excuse his thieving is like Savile thinking his charity work should excuse his child abuse.

        “You can’t go after Jimmy Savile, think of all the charities he’s raised money for, who will now be tarred with his brush undeservedly!”– many unnamed persons in politics, media, and plod for the last few decades

        “You can’t go after Denis Matyjaszek for mere property crime when he’s needed to fight the good fight to end human trafficking!”– Denis Matyjaszek, now that the game’s up.

        Sounds like a Scooby Doo villain, right? “And I’d have ended the trafficking, too, if those Nosy Parker Bee Enn Pee types and Johnny Foreigner media types hadn’t stopped me!”

        How disgusting to use abused children in a pathetic attempt to explain his fraudulent behaviour..
        If he and others like Twatson, were really so concerned about child exploitation, why didn’t they use their 13 years in power more productively?

          Sarge says:

          Quite agree. The desperate attempts to deflect blame are pathetic. Dennis got caught with his hand in the till; you and I would have been dismissed immediately and prosecuted. Dennis gets the luxury of plod taking two years to figure out the evidence was subject to Parliamentary privilege,even when it was not. Plus he kept his salary and generous benefits.Worst of all ,he kept claiming expenses.

      He used to be a journo (like most Labourites, never had a job where he actually had to make something or do something useful); wrote a book on handling the media, so he can probably go back to scribbling. But who’d take his stuff?

      Interesting bit from Wiki:-

      “He worked for the BBC from 1969 to 1977…….was fired by the BBC after using a fake name to call the radio phone-in programme he worked on at the time. During the call, MacShane accused leading Conservative politician Reginald Maudling of being a crook, with the MP threatening to sue as a result.”

      Pot? Kettle?

        Denis MacShane, a Potted History:

        Get’s sacked by the BBC, becomes an MP, spends his time as an MP, bullshitting, lying, smearing and stealing taxpayers money.

        Get’s sacked by the Labour party, attempts to distract attention away from his theft, by distorting, lying, smearing and self adopted victimhood.

        Anyone spot a pattern here?

    Psychopaths do all they can to make normal people cross the line. Once across they have their control. The ones they do not like are exposed. The rest are protected for gain.
