MacShane Grovels as CPS Hover

MacShame’s grovelling is starting to look as pathetic as it is empty. Today he apologised to the people of Rotherham in a letter to the Yorkshire Post:

“How do I say sorry? Rotherham has been such an important part of my life and I have let this wonderful town, its terrific people and my constituency down so very badly. I accept fully the responsibility for my actions. That I was at grievous fault there can be no doubt. I cannot convey how much I will miss Rotherham. I am not from South Yorkshire but the people took me into their bonds of friendship and made my young family…feel very much at home. I finish by apologising from the bottom of my heart for the damage I have done, I hope only temporarily, to the good name of Rotherham, through my folly and mistakes.”

Meanwhile the CPS met with cops this week to discuss reopening the criminal investigation. He will need to do more than say sorry when they come calling…

    Pretend you where absued by a Top Tory as a kid Denis and that is what made you do it, that will surely help as the Anti-Semitism card hasn’t worked this time.

    Old Tory Bigot says:

    Over here…

    Until Friday, Denis Macshane’s public profile was that of a principled politician who was unstinting with his energy and commitment to the causes in which he believed.

    Truly unbelievable.

    How to get away with massive fraud. says:

    “He will need to do more than say sorry when they come calling…”

    Or he can use the Margaret Moron defence: “You can’t put me on trial for my crimes, because that would make me very sad. And being punished for my crimes would make me sadder still. Being sad is against my human rights. Wibble.”

    Don’t knock it, it works.

    He hasn’t ruined the good name of Rotherham … his actions have only ruined his own. As for his supporters after his shenanigans became public, well what can you say apart from stating that they are obviously easily gulled.

    When it started, did MacShane say he was guilty or innocent? Did he say he will keep his option open about suing?

    Put the fucker in chokey says:

    Wait, last week he blamed a campaign by the B**. Now he’s admitting it was his fault? What a slimy, crooked c-unt. I hope he gets a nice long prison sentence.

    Claim to be severely depressed. It seems to have worked for Margaret Moran who the judge has ordered not fit to stand trial (or similar legal shit). The upshot is she can’t be found guilty.

    If you were over the age of consent no crime was committed, unless you are claiming coercion.

    That would not have stopped them prosecuting a tea leaf who had nicked £500

  34. 34

    The name of Rotherham went down the crapper when they lost their collective marbles and elected him in the first place.

    He was, still is and always will be an odious piece of work and hopefully in the not too dstant future he will be a convicted tea leaf.
    Good Riddance

    Rotherham is ‘so important’ to the psychopath MacShane/Matyjazek that he did precisely nothing about the long running well organised abuse of white girls by gangs of mus lems in his constituency.

    Underage girls under the care of social services don’t vote, muzbots do – often several times. You have to look at it from the perspective of a fearless campaigner for social justice and scourge of the right.

    I’ve changed my passwords to MacShane (various numbers but I have to change passwords every fucking 4 weeks and it’s doing my tits in) – he’s defo the poster boy for November. Over on Craig Murray’s blog an FCO accountant has word that he’s always been an idiot. Whoodda thunk?

    The Rotherham Advertiser is the local rag, incidentally in love with McShane.

    The Sheffield Star is the daily rag for Rotherhams neighbours, they do a Rotherham edition but both Sheffield & Rotherham are a waste of toilet paper.

    Actually – I saw an article where he blamed it all directly on his daughter – his state of mind was distressed after she died in 2004. Really!

    A glib little political bigot caught with hand in the till and try to blag his way out.

    Actually, knowing Rotherham as I do, he is likely to get extremely short shrift.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
