    Righties are very bright says:

    What a sharp mind he has!

    The leader of the English Defence League has been jailed for 10 months for using someone else’s passport to travel to the USA. Stephen Lennon, 30, from Luton, admitted possession of a false identity document with improper intention.

    Lennon used a passport in the name of Andrew McMaster to board a Virgin Atlantic flight from Heathrow to New York, Southwark Crown Court was told. He entered the US illegally then used his own passport to return to the UK.

    Lennon had previously been refused entry to the US and used a friend’s passport to travel to the country in September.

    He used a self check-in kiosk to board the flight at Heathrow and was allowed through when the document was checked in the bag-drop area. But when Lennon arrived at New York’s JFK Airport, customs officials took his fingerprints and realised he was not travelling on his own passport.

      Guido’s wish, like most of us here, is that we do absolutely nothing which could give grounds for the case to be dismissed. One cannot do other than to agree. H███e’s lawyers will plug at every possibility to get him off on a technicality. That must not happen.

        M’Lud, I wish to draw to the Court’s attention the following recent entry in what is known, M’Lud as a ‘blog’… I’m obliged to Your Lordship. Exactly, as Your Lordship says, ‘a kind of cross between a Log and a Block’. Thank you, M’Lud. You will find the relevant passage… I am indeed most obliged to Your Lordship, but I think, if we might, we should leave out -for now – any distracting references to either Actresses or Bishops. The reference is on page 3 – I see Your Lordsghip’s eyes light up – page 3. I quote: “One cannot do other than agree. H****’s lawyers will oplug at every possibility to get him off on a technicality.” Who can this H**** be? I submit to your Court, M’Lud, that given this particular ‘cross between a Log and a Block’s’ former preoccupation with a former Defence Secretary, Mr. Geoffrey Hoon – to such an extent that it created the almost indelible impression that ‘a Hoon’ was a new kind of slang, patois, or argot, for a rather unpleasant word of similar length, popularly used for a particularly silly or vexing person, or a … Again, I am obliged to Your Lordship, particularly obliged. Indeed, exactly as the Learned Judge has said here, in his Court. Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury, you will remember, I am sure you will long remember, that word which M’Lud with such clarity enunciated. Now, M’Lud, as everyone knows, my Client’s name begins with the same – aspirate if not consonant; my Client’s name is a monosyllable; my Client is … No My Lord (if I might presume to dissent from Your Lordship) I am not saying that my Client is, to paraphrase Your Lordship, ‘a Hoon’ – but that it has been published that a Defendant, whose name begins with ‘H’, and has very few letters thereafter, has a case that his Lawyers (so the Defendant is a Male, with a name of four or five letters, the first of which is ‘H’, and has been frequently mentioned on a ‘blog’ which had a particular animadversion … No, M’Lud: nothing to do with Animals or Perversions… a particular quarrel with a former-politician called Hoon, now presumes to declare that ‘his lawyers’ must ‘plug at every possibility’ insinuating ‘uphilll work’, ‘to get him off on a technicality’ – insinuating even more forcibly that my Client’s case is so hopeless, the issue so pre-determined in favour of his guilt that only some tiny wrinkle, hitherto unnoticed, in the majestic fabric of The Law could provide for his acquittal. My Lord, I suggest to this Court, that this ‘blog’ removes at a stroke, a key-stroke even, the presumption of innocence to which my Client is entitled. The ‘blog’ in question goes on to say (Page 4. M’Lud): ‘That must not happen’. My Lord, you no doubt will wonder with far more astonishment than I that a ‘blogger’ could utter such a determined Contempt of Your Lordship’s Court. He has at once vitiated our ancient principle of ‘presumption of innocence’ and proclaimed his intention of thwarting the course of Justice!
        I’m sorry, My Lord. I didn’t quite catch…
        I am obliged to Your Lordship.

          New rules on Crown Court pre-trial hearings

          Practice Direction: Crown Court Plea and Direction Hearings; Lord Taylor of Gosforth, Lord Chief Justice; 25 July 1995

          New rules establishing plea and directions hearings (PDHs) in the Crown Court now apply to all cases (other than serious fraud) in Crown Court centres which have notified magistrates’ courts that such hearings have been introduced. At the PDH, pleas are taken and, in contested cases, prosecution and defence must assist the judge by identifying the key issues and providing any additional information required for the proper listing of the case.

          The defence must supply the court and the prosecution with a full list of the prosecution witnesses they require to attend at the trial. This must be provided at least 14 days prior to the PDH or within three working days of the notice of the hearing where the PDH is fixed less than 17 days ahead.

          For all class 1 offences, and for lengthy and complex cases, a case summary should be prepared by the prosecution, to assist the judge at the PDH by indicating the nature of the case and focusing on the likely issues of fact and/or law. All class 2 cases should be scrutinised by the prosecution to determine whether such a summary is appropriate.

          The PDH should normally be held, and orders made, in open court with all defendants present. It should normally be conducted by the trial judge or such judge as the presiding judge or resident judge shall appoint, but in cases in class 1 or 2 or serious sexual offences of any class against a child it should be conducted by a High Court judge or circuit judge or recorder to whom the case has been specifically released in accordance with the directions for the allocation of business within the Crown Court (see [1995] 2 All ER 900, [1995] 1 WLR 1083) or by a directions judge authorised by the presiding judges to conduct such hearings.

          At the PDH, arraignments will normally take place. If the defendant pleads guilty, the judge should wherever possible proceed to sentencing.

          Following a not guilty plea, and where part or alternative pleas have not been accepted, the prosecution and defence should inform the court of various matters (fully listed in the rules), including the issues in the case, issues as to the mental or medical condition of any defendant or witness, details about the witnesses and the evidence in the case, any facts which are to be admitted and may be reduced into writing, any alibi, any likely application for child witness evidence to be given by live television link or prerecorded video, or for screens to protect the identity of witnesses, any technical equipment likely to be required, the estimated length of the hearing and anything else that might affect the trial.

          The judge may then make such orders as appear to be necessary. Each party shall confirm in writing, at least 14 days before the trial, that such orders have been fully complied with.

          The defence shall apply to the court for the case to be listed for mention if they are unable to obtain instructions from the defendant. If the defendant fails to attend court, the judge will wish to consider whether a warrant of arrest should be issued.

          The rules came into force immediately.

High rewards should be balanced by hard punishments. A conviction for gross malfeasance in office should carry the death penalty.

    Any more ludicrous and frivilous applications to the court ought to be deemed as an abuse of the court and viewed as being seen to bring the court itself into disrepute – Huhne must enter a plea and a trial must be set down at the earliest possible date – this matter has dragged on for too long and ought to have been brought to trial months if not a year ago. The defendant has been afforded more than enough time to seek multiple avenues to have the charge against him dropped.

            Eventually, unless super lucky with a pro-bono lawyer, the plea deal will likely be much better than whatever law school drop out you or the charity throws your way.

    I would think USA can amble along for a while , its the EU data I am not sure about , keep your eye on coporate debt and socialised utilities , short term is probebely natural , but when coporate debt becomes filled , does it not then turn into inflation that hits the poorest countries in the eurozone hardest ??? and share price falls on indebedted companies ?? Barros says the euro is saved , I think Mr Draghi has a great deal more work containing and soaking up the debts , let alone what new borrowings he may be forced to do .
    Like I say the data must be reliable , non of yer Labour off balance sheet type things. Basically just keep yer eye on all aspects at national and ECB

    I just can’t understand why people keep banging on about being overrun with immigrants. We don’t have any at all in Chipping Norton. And anyway, multiculturalism is a good thing. I mean, Sam and I often have a chicken korma on a Thursday. Toodle pip!

    How does someone become a “former bi-sexual”?

    Hetero- and homo-sexual are what I guess we might call starting points from which one may depart. But surely by straying from one of those two extremes one becomes bisexual, a state that is irreversible.

    Or am I missing something here?

    When this person resigned from his Cabinet position in which he was working tirelessly to save our financial bacon I have a clear recollection of him saying he wanted to work full time on clearing his name.

    Today thanks to Mr Fawkes I learn this person wishes to try to have matters dropped behind closed doors .

    Just how long can it take to prepare such a simple case of perjury for trial in this country and what on earth has it cost. Presumably the aythorities are trying to find a way of presenting the weakest possible case from the available evidence so he gets off, returns in glory to the Cabinet and does even more harm.

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”



Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
