Sarah Teather’s Accident at Work

Have you had an accident at work? Slipped, tripped or fell into an inappropriate position with a colleague? Sarah Teather has the answer. The silent LibDem has just pocketed a £2,000 donation from Simple Claims, an ambulance-chasing personal injury compensation firm. Apparently “everyone in the workplace, including visitors and members of the public, are at risk”, and Simple Claims are “experts in providing hassle free quick settlements”. Every little helps…

    Soon to move from PPI to the NHS claims business.

    Lots more money there

    40,000 avoidable deaths a year. 500K a pop say, same as a payoff for a failed manager.

    20 bn a year, not counting back claims.

      Our next ‘growth’ industry once PPI is all done. We lead the world in innovative ‘products’ funny how it’s either the consumer (in the case of PPI) and the tax payer (in the case of the pending NHS claims) that pays, never the useless twat that caused the problem.

    PCC tell Gordon to get fucked says:

    Apologies if this has already been covered in previous threads, but I only just read this delightful story.

    Gordon Brown’s PCC complaint against Sunday Times rejected

    Gordon Brown’s complaint to the Press Complaints Commission over a Sunday Times story about the more than £2m in fees and expenses received since he stepped down as prime minister has been rejected.

    Brown objected to a Sunday Times story in December headlined “Globe-trotting Gordon Brown loses his voice”, which reported that while the MP had not spoken in parliament for more than a year, he was busy “criss-crossing the globe to maintain an international profile”.

    Sunday Times reporter Dipesh Gadher went on to detail 28 trips Brown had made according to the MPs’ register of interests since he had last spoken in the Commons on 30 November 2011.

    The article also reported that “since leaving No 10, Brown has received more than £2m in fees and expenses — although this has all been ploughed back into his public and charitable activities”.

    A complaint was lodged with the PCC by Charlie King, who works for the office of Gordon and Sarah Brown, accusing the Sunday Times of publishing “a deliberate slur” because it had reported that the former Labour prime minister had “received” the money when in fact he had not personally received the fees.

    According to the Sunday Times, which reported the PCC’s ruling at the weekend, King had demanded a correction and apology.

    Brown’s office had made the complaint under clause 1 of the PCC editors’ code of practice, which relates to accuracy.

    The PCC rejected the complaint as the paper had made it clear that the money was not for his personal gain and ruled there was no breach of the accuracy clause.

    “It was the commission’s view that the newspaper had not mispresented the situation,” the PCC said in its adjudication, which has not been made public in line with its policy on straightforward cases that do not involve public censure.

    “The article had made clear repeatedly that the payments were not for the gain of Mr Brown personally – it stated that the money ‘was not for personal gain’, that it had ‘all been ploughed back into his public and charitable activities’ and that ‘each payment goes to the office of Gordon and Sarah Brown’,” the PCC noted.

        Pawn Sandwich says:

        Can you please explain to me what the words ‘prudence’ and ‘investment’ mean, the dictionary description of these words do not convey any meaning for the context in which you used them.
        Do you have your own interpretation that nobody knows about?


        • 41
          Gordon Brown says:

          I should never have been put with Pawn Sandwich. Whose idea was that? Sue’s I think.

          What did he say?

          Och, everything. He was asking me about my definition of prudence and investment. He’s just a bigoted man. It’s just ridiculous.

          I don’t the news programmes will run with it.

          They will run with it.

This was after he resigned when caught shagging another mans wife and stealing travel warrants . See its easy and if you think that’s good wait till you see what I did with the phrase “Beyond doubt ” !

          hold them to ac says:

          It is clear. Fees and expenses, we all know what this means, it means staff and personal indirect benefits. Rooms, cars, planes and even drinks provided meetings, and hardly a slur, just stating that he has seen fit to be above an MP as he is a name. Gee wiz. But maybe people think his largesse is a little over the top, and so there might be a common theme in Brown’s spending.

    Casual Observer says:

    The cases on some missing children should be re-opened, as per this Indy article yesterday on Elm House:

    The Spinks character mentioned was re-arrested last year at Heathrow after being on the run for 15 years. Was tracked down to the Czeck Republic, arrested and returned. He was very much active in Eastern Europe and Holland both before and after his original spell in prison in the UK.

    It is suggested that Spinks is the link between Dutroux and Demmink.

    Spinks himself has often boasted of being involved with snuff movies.

    Statements given by various people to Scotland Yard support those boasts. Spinks was more a procurer of the children involved, and agent for film distribution to the more extreme end of the gay market.

    Worth a google as he only had only 18 months of sentence left to serve.


    Interestingly, it appears an international arrest warrant was raised by the Home Office against Spinks, but no mention that a European Arrest Warrant was.

    This case should be a poster child for EAW, however, that he was able to so easily roam across borders in the first place continuing child trafficking with conviction and criminal record highlights more what the real reason why open border policy is defended by some.

    Owen Jones is a phony says:

    Owen Jones, if he was ever honest, would admit that his entire career and livelihood depends on there being continuous poverty. Like Polly, he proclaims to stand up for the poor and disadvantaged, but they’re his bread and butter. Instead of actually doing something worthwhile, he’s carved out a career that depends wholly and exclusively on there being a solid, permanent base of workshy chavs and scroungers. He doesn’t respect genuine working class people, who actually strive and work and make their contributions. He probably refers to them in private as Thatcherite white van man etc. His crusade is solely on behalf of what Night Jack called the “evil poor”, the scores of feral lunatics who constitute the underclass, committing vicious crimes and living off the state.

    Yvonne from the Colliers Arms Clydach says:

    Many years ago a Judge calling himself Woolf introduce these no win no fee claims .

    Apparently at the time only a minority of people were claiming for injuries for Rtas

    The idea was that by knocking back costs more people would claim what they had been missing out on .

    Not surprisingly total compo payments have gone up .

    The only thing is the insurers don’t like it because it hits their margins.

    That is what it is all about.

      Anonymous says:

      The Rt. Hon. the Lord Woolf & Sir Jeffrey Jowell QC have no interest in justice, they only saw a cash cow and went for it. It was not their aim to reduce their fees but to attract more cases. If they were after justice they would have reduced the courts costs instead.

      Their demonstrable lack of concern over justice, and their support for ADR, and other road blocks to justice, is the largest miscarriage of justice for individuals in this country. A real justice system would have these stages built into it, so that the cost of justice was proportional to the harm. But nothing will be done until the corruption is taken out of the system and the ones in charge, actually care about justice and the integrity of the judges.

      But like certain types of business they only want the cases that are simple and can be mass produced. That way they can still charge the huge fees but do the least work. Any unusual cases are ignored and all effort is made to destroy the victims.

    An interesting list you have got there Mr Guido !

    It deserves a little more reading.

    What has Mr Gareth Thomas of Harrow West been up to ?

    Well I can tell everyone he has been carrying out some overseas visits paid for by the Coop.

    To be precise £2,498 for “flights some hotel nights and Misc expenses” plus another £1,803 for “additional hotel accommodation and meals”.

    Where pray where these visits made? Mali ,Chad , Niger? No,no no!


    I had never heard of this guy before but thanks to Guido I now do and will most definitely be marking his card in the future .

    I thought Guido was having a pop here at no win no fee lawyers .

    Well he is missing something .

    When it comes to no win no fee agreements Leigh Day and Co and Thompsons can mix it with the best of them .

    Enter Emily Thornberry the Honourable Member for Islington South and Finsbury.

    Leigh Day have paid a legal research assistant for her twice over £ 19,250 plus another £14,150 .

    Not to be outdone Thompsons have chipped in another £8,750 for another research assistant .

    I bet we would all like to see their conclusions about no win no fee agreements !

    The matter gets even worse because Emily Thornberry is a “non practising barrister ” so what is wrong with a bit of DYOR without accepting shillings from people with vested interests .
