    If it’s “for mention” does that not mean that the trial is not taking place but merely adjourned.

      Cases listed for mention in court are usually to fix a date for trial or agree outstanding
      issues. They can sometimes lead to a change of plea.

      I fear the cross-hairs are premature.

      Convicting a supremely well-connected politician like Huhne is the legal equivalent of nailing a jelly to a wall.

          ‘Get away with it’ is perhaps being a bit inaccurate. I suspect, come May 2015, he won’t get away with it. I suspect he, and his miserable Party of cretinous Illiberal scum, get well and truly shafted.

          And I also bet, because the LimpDums never think ahead (because that requires intellect), that he’s made no plans for the bleak future (without taxpayers’ money) that will soon be knocking at his door.

      Blowing Whistles says:

      Re Carter Fcuk – As I poisted here some weeks ago – it’s a bit late to change a plea – as the courts only (their words and deeds) look favourably on “an early guilty plea”. N.B. Huhne has failed to enter a plea; while Pryce entered an early plea of not guilty citing several historical defences some time ago.

      The fact that this debacle still continues / drags [Queen pun intended] on- brings contempt upon Huhne his hughne fee earning legal beagles oh and the Dim Libs party BECAUSE the “damage” is done. Huhu’gene’ is a hugeune liabiltiy to the dim libs no matter the outcome. He’s a lose-lose liability

      And result upon result is that the legal and judicial system – need to be very careful how they tread – on the oft abused citation of what is “IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST” …

Patients including Mum were frantically ringing bells to get help and no nurses came. Went looking for nurses and found them down a corridor in a lounge laughing and joking and drinking coffee/tea. Very annoyed they were to be disturbed and told to look after patients!!

        Dave does come across as a bit of a dipstick to us, so imagine how the schmuck is perceived abroad. Total douche is probably being polite, hence he very likely does not have many friends out there.

        Final point on why people appear to be working against us. This is more likely to do with the fact that some idiots in the previous administration thought it was a good idea to bring ‘peace and democracy’ to parts of the world which didn’t really want it. What is being reaped now is the understandable reaction against liberal values being imposed.

        Looking to the future, these activities abroad could be starting much closer to home soon if people start reacting as they should towards the EU imposition. That, one fears, may have already started.

            I was saying this in the late 90s on the basis that if you bear the loss, you will be miles more objective with the assessment. Nothing hurts financially more than losing your own money.

            Of course, no one listened to me and for a while they all walked on water. But one day (anyone who has not spent their life on Pluto can complete this story)…

In a way it is amusing seeing things snap back to normal right now, and this case (as a lot of others do) are interesting only in that those being prosecuted got away with it for so long. And they are under the delusion that they can continue to get away with it with impunity.

            Even a non guilty verdict or full dismissal of case / charges is not going to save Hoon’s bacon: The guy is toast.

            Risk in the purest sense can be managed, but not all of it. The trade off for perfect risk management is complete loss of liberty.

            As far as financial gain is concerned, as we are shortly to learn, it doesn’t matter how much money you have, what counts is access to raw resources and having the means to gain access. Being trusted and considered honest is much more efficient than the gun. Soft power is better than hard.

            Given that the BBC has had to run stories telling everyone that people abroad love the UK post Olympics, I suspect we should probably start getting armed.

          • It is a very complex picture with the fortunes of both countries ebbing and flowing in opposing cycles to each other. But where this might have been seen almost as counterpoint before, it looks increasingly like dissonance now.

            As you said elsewhere, we are likely to see raw aggression from China who had chosen a different path over the relinquishment of ΗΚ (you have to use Greek chars to print that here!) under an older set of leaders. There is also the harvest problem looming with this cold winter in the entire northern hemisphere.

            But it also seems to me that the new lot don’t want to play the long game any more. Strategically they will be overtaken by India in my view and I saw that Farage was saying something along those lines in a very good video posted here earlier today.

      …the fact that we are created equal is a lunatic’s assertion.

      Before the criminal law, maybe notionally, although we see plenty of evidence to question that (look at the top of the page for an example.)

      But how far can one carry this so-called equality, especially where it is manifestly untrue? Are we all equally intelligent? Equally happy? Equally rich (or poor)? Equal size? Equal in lifespan, love and luck?

      And just supposed all these qualities were redistributed with scrupulous fairness? Exactly how many nanoseconds would such equality subsist?

      Those who fall short in any capacity fall for this claptrap hook, line and sinker. It’s very presence as an argument creates a class of people who will look to some outside force to put things right that most of the time, not all admittedly, they should be sorting themselves.

          Many wars have been started by women, and many men have fallen victim to female scorn. Whenever the discussion of domestic violence and murder of women is brought up, just remember that as many men die however the woman is not counted as murderess as she typically bewitches or pays for another man to do her deed.

      The larger crime here though is that she is using her amoral actions to perpetrate an even larger amoral action through providing support to the case for press regulation, hence restriction of liberty of press.

      In more enlightened societies she would be sent packing and left to fix her affairs. If her campaign gains any credible traction then perhaps the mu55ie patrols should be set on her.

    The EU can seriously fuck off says:

    Interesting article – you may need to hit the google translate to get to english (works in chrome):

    http://www.faz.net/aktuell/politik/europaeische-union/pressefreiheit-eu-berater-wollen-medien-staerker-ueberwachen-12032982.html

    Essentially talking about EU regulation of presses throughout EZ, including the internet media. Leveson centered on the EFRA.

    Earth to ex-President Latvian whore Varia Vike-Freiberga: Go fuck yourself, and fuck off back to your little baltic shithole country.

    Advice: Piss on the EU flag, only when it is not on fire.

      Here is corresponding Hannan article – worth reading if you haven’t yet:

      http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/danielhannan/100199046/eu-usa-hold/

      Points out that current EU / US trade deal makes case for some of the conditions which UK make for remaining in the EU.

      Above article was referenced in the comments section – very much worth reading.

      Still: The EU flag should be pissed on at any and all opportunity only if it is not on fire.

      This is one of my pet hates – expensive to collect ‘pay as you drive’ schemes, involving gantries, cameras, tollbooths, satellites, computer networks, offices, staff – when we already have pay-as-you-drive taxes in the form of fuel duty and VAT.

      I can understand this utter lunacy being put forward under a Labour government, but under a Conservative-lead government the idea should be gunned down the moment it raises its ugly head.
