MacShane Finds a Friend In the Staggers

Tin foil hat time over at the progressive workhouse that is the Staggers. Apparently the police have re-opened their investigations into proven liar Denis MacShane because of David Cameron’s speech on Europe. No, really:

macshane-cake“What’s really going on with this new police investigation into Denis MacShane’s expenses? Months ago, the police said there would be no charges, and there’s no new information. There’s a reason why they have suddenly reopened it, now of all times, and it’s got nothing at all to do with Denis’s expenses, and everything to do with David Cameron’s speech about Europe.”

Francis Beckett froths on before admitting MacShane is a old friend and then saying it’s all fine because David Laws thieved more. He then has a go at Guido for doing his job of exposing crooks. Yes Guido is vindictive, MacShane would still be at it if he was not…

    The essence of propaganda consists in winning people over to an idea so sincerely, so vitally, that in the end they succumb to it utterly and can never escape from it.

      We know. WE have been practicing it with increasing success for the past 30 years…our greatest success was in the 2010 General Election Campaign convincing people that a “Balanced Parliament” would be good for Britain.

      Doc Joe's Boss says:

      “The Big Lie”: A lie so large that it convinces by its sheer audacity! For even if it is immediately debunked, it lingers like a bad odour, because most people will still think that there had to have been SOME kernel of truth in it, no smoke without fire if you will, or why would someone have said it? Most people’s lies are on a small scale, about matters no-one will call them on, because most people are probably a little bit corrupted, but they are not pathological liars. Most people would never tell a lie on a grand scale, for fear of being found out– and they assume everyone else is that way, too. They cannot conceive of a lie so breathtakingly large in scope, and yet so simple in detail, being told and parroted over and over again, and the liar being able to get away with it! Of course, most people believe that a political party’s best weapon is the truth, too. That’s how the liar succeeds– most people are naive when it comes to seeing how ambitious politicians really are.

    Steve Miliband says:

    So the Albanian Rozzers knew what was going to be in Camerons speech and at the bequest of the Government arrested McShane on false pretences in case McShane opposed a referendum? I have I got that right?

      It is a ploy designed to divert attention from the Hu*hne trial & appears to be very successful.
      I remain convinced that H will get away with it & await the famous phrase “you leave this court without a stain on your character”.

          Has he recovered from his depression?
          Watching him, I think that I’ve caught it.
          What a total r-sole the man is.

          Can Straw not shake off his mortal coil soon, as with the other Blair weasels?

    From our MP

    Dear Resident,

    From Bramall Hall to Bruntwood Park, our area always looks spectacular in the snow.

    However, whilst we may not have had as much disruption as other areas, it is still important we’re prepared! With more heavy snow forecast for Friday I wanted to send a quick note to highlight some useful web links and contact details which will help keep you informed of any problems in our area and make sure you and your family can be as safe as possible.

    Our Roads

    There are no emergency road closures at present but if you are travelling by road, pleasekeep updated on roadworks across the region by visiting the BBC Travel News website for Manchester.

    As per usual, Stockport Council will continue to prioritise gritting major roads and bus routes. Although the Council is working hard to keep the roads clear and safe, please do let me know of any specific problems and I will keep the pressure up on the Council to make our roads as safe as possible in the icy & snowy conditions. Just ring my office on Gillbent Road, Cheadle Hulme, on 0161 486 1359.

    keredybretsa says:

    Presumably it has nothing to do with the dishonourable MacShame being slightly money orientated in a dishonest manner. Now of course if he’d been a MEP he could have really shovelled money into his suitcases and no one would have cared or noticed! Carry on Guido encore, encore.
