Police Launch Formal Investigation Into Rennard

Developing…

Our understanding is that the Metropolitan Police are investigating two complaints from victims who have come forward – we have had the names for some time.

      Guido has no need to guess. He has the names for various similar scandals but, oddly, seems to have no interest in the much worse cases associated with Brittan et al. This is why Guido is now just seen as a placeman.

        They are not above the law. The law is afraid of them. It starts at the bottom where the police are afraid of the backlash and extra hassle of arresting them.

        It is like fighting a Union or any large grouping. When they have more power to disrupt than the authorities can cope with, they are ignored.

        As for the Judges they have done their best to discredit Juries, to the point that we now accept that people are too dumb to understand the law. This allows the judges to do what is safe for them, as opposed to what is right for the people. This has to change. The avoidance of visible justice, and contracted private judgements, is the death of this country.

    BBC One controller Danny Cohen is to be the new director of television, director general Tony Hall says.

      The Beeb says:

      The appointment completes Lord Hall’s senior team which recently saw James Harding become director of news.

      Mr Cohen, whose commissions include Call The Midwife and The Voice, will take over from the acting director of BBC TV Roger Mosey.

      Lord Hall praised Mr Cohen’s “ability to provide viewers with a mixture of high quality programmes”.

      Mr Cohen, who became controller of BBC One in 2010, said he was “honoured” to take up the role.

      “I’ve had a wonderful time at BBC One and am grateful for the work of all the talented people who have made the channel the most popular in the UK in recent years,” he said.

      The channel had record viewing figures in 2012, led by the success of the Olympic closing ceremony with an average of 24.5 million viewers.

      According to Broadcasters’ Audience Research Board (BARB), BBC One showed nine out of the top 10 most watched programmes of the year.

      Mr Cohen took over BBC Three in May 2007 after leaving Channel 4 as the head of factual entertainment and E4.

      His future commissions for BBC One include an adaptation of JK Rowling’s book The Casual Vacancy, a sitcom written by David Walliams, a comedy series starring Matt Lucas plus new dramas The White Queen, Atlantis and an adaptation of the book Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell.

      Mr Cohen, whose appointment follows an open recruitment process, will start his role on 7 May with a salary of £327,800.

            However, some do not actually hate. Many in our country are mentally below average and are swept along with the tide. These include our leaders.

            I met a family that was once “conned” by a government and persuaded to take part in a movement that ended up killing many people. Afterwards they were left feeling guilty, that they had trusted their leaders. They swore to never to let it happen again.

            They did not hate anyone. They saw the stupidity in themselves. Their leaders were simply wrong.

            So “venting our spleen” does not require hate, and outlets like this are not created for saintly reasons. They are created to tap into a source of dissent that sadly involves those that unquestionably hate and insult.

    Fat shit Salmond double talk says:

    Alex Salmond delivered a whole-hearted defence of the euro yesterday and predicted that Scotland would successfully flourish if the country cut its ties with sterling and embraced the European single currency.

    ”I think that being outside the euro area is already penalising the Scottish economy. In the medium-term, the longer we stay out, the more damage will accumulate. The euro is an example of why Scotland needs membership status so that it can take a decision on entry into the single currency,” he said.

    The strong pound and the Government’s priority of an ”economic policy made in the south-east of England by the south-east of England and for the south-east of England”, he claimed, were under-

    mining the Scottish economy with its tradition of exports.

      This must have been said with tongue-in-cheek given that half of Europe is being decimated economically just through being members of the Eurozone. Salmond’s logical thinking is akin to that of a Highland stag. It would make far more sense logically for Scotland to have its own currency if it went independent. The trouble is that Salmond knows all too well that Scotland can not go it alone and so needs the EU for a crutch to replace the existing English crutch.

      There were several companies selling this junk – the ADE 651 was just another in a long line:

      “The Alpha 6 is a hand-held device comprising a swiveling antenna mounted via a hinge to a plastic handset. Promotional literature claims that the device “is programmed to oscillate at the same frequency as that of the substance to be located.” It is said to be powered by static electricity generated within the user’s body “when breathing occurs”. The device is claimed to be able to detect the “molecular signature” of various substances, including drugs, explosives and ammunition in quantities as small as 15 nanograms, from distances of up to 300 metres (980 ft) away, through walls and underwater. The “signature” of the substance to be detected is stored on a “recognition card” sealed inside the handset”

      What kind of fool would buy such a thing?

    Mason also failed to point out that some of the oil and gas revenues belong to England because the fields lie partly in English waters.

      Of course, our cousins on the other side of the pond would never engage in such disproportionate response, perish the thought, right?

      Some have called it a dress rehearsal for impositions of martial law, but in any event it is certainly what can termed a “natural experiment” of sorts. A “natural experiment,” for those educated under Labour, is when there is an occurrence/condition, presumably random in the sense that the scientists studying it didn’t create it or any precursor condition that could have precipitated it (sometimes they discover that, in fact, they did do so albeit unknowingly). In any event, the scientists note what has happened and attempt to derive lessons that can be applied more generally. A well-known example was the “Forbidden Experiment,” an instance in which a teenage California girl was discovered in the early 1970’s to have been so isolated by her parents that she never learned to spe/ak intelligibly– scientists had often speculated what would happen to such a child, but of course, unless you are Dr Mengele, you never seriously consider doing such a study, for obvious reasons. They attempted to glean what they could in regard to what effect it had on her whilst at the same time they obviously had to try to habilitate her to some more normal sort of life, a squaring of the circle in a sense, but they did what they ethically could do (though some say “Genie” WAS treated like a tweezered bug under a magnifier, to some extent). The ethics question obviously arose as to whether any data of Dr Mengele’s experiments should ever be examined for any applicability, however horrible and hideous were the circumstances of their compilation.

      Let’s assume arguendo (ass+u+me, but anyway) the authorities did not, on the day, have the two men bomb the Marathon, and become the object of a citywide dragnet for their capture and/or “termination with extreme prejudice”; nevertheless, the event having happened, and presumably till the men tipped their hand as to their location with the killing of a police officer, the entire Boston region was told to stay indoors. When a more precise idea of the whereabouts of the surviving gunman was obtained, the police went door to door and rousted those “locked down” in Watertown, resistance being deemed suspicious and the co-operation of the populace being taken as a given– to no avail, as the gunman was nowhere to be found in the homes of anyone in Watertown, and the effort was set to be stood down when a homeowner, who was presumably not co-operating with the stay-inside order, went out and inspected strange bloodsta/ins on the boat in his yard, and provided the telling clue to police. One struggles in vain to see how remaining inside would have helped the citizens (as opposed to the police) remain safer, except insofar as they could not be captured off the street and used for hostages or human shields, and should Tsarnaev have burst in on some home, how homeowners should have reacted to it. (Massachusetts is a heavy-control state for gun ownership– and it is possible they may not have been able to reach and use a telephone to alert police before they might be subdued/killed.)

      Is there anyone out there who believes the information as to how to carry out an operation like this, in terms of how/not to pull off such a major abridgment of the rights of citizens, will NOT be studied, and perhaps employed, in future such instances, ones in which a desperate governmental entity, not wanting to be found, ermm, “wanting” in terms of response to a possible threat (and possibly one of their own creation), will go all-out? (“St Mary’s virus,” anyone? “Bloody ‘ell, that was just a motion picture!” Yeah, OK, whatever…)
