LibDem Council Boss Quits After Child Porn Arrest

The LibDem leader of Kingston Council has quit after being nicked in a child porn arrest. His deputy has put out this statement:

“Derek Osbourne has resigned from the Liberal Democrat group. We are deeply shocked by these allegations but I am unable to comment further as we must now allow the police the time and space they need to investigate the allegations thoroughly and without prejudice.”

How many LibDem dodgy sex scandals is that now?

    Yep. Beard. Scruffy. Short (indicating poor nutrition during childhood leading to low IQ in adult life and tendency towards wishy-washy airy-fairy political leanings).

    I bet his kitchen cupboards are full of cans of lentil soup, too. And packets of couscous, which he pretended to enjoy eating a long time ago but now leaves there, untouched, on the off-chance he can show them off to his fellow LimpDum friends who never actually come to visit.

    They all want pensions and other stuff cut, but they all still want us pleb taxpayers to continue to subsidise their mortgages, houses, and their drinking and eating.

    They all parachute in their learned and union friends into parliament any way, not an ordinary bloke or female in there, good lord no, they don’t want us in there spoiling their self wealth creation;their union leader bercow sees to that ffs!

    People who strive to place themselves at the top of the political totem pole and then break the law should receive the HARSHEST of the penalties that the law provides.

    Who are these people (of all political persuasions) who take the moral high ground on all social perspectives, tell us what to do, what to think? Then they go and commit the foulest of deeds themselves.

    The judiciary should take the lead by using these people as examples. But it does the EXACT OPPOSITE and gives them the most LENIENT of sentences possible.

    Two activities have followed the same social path, child porn and collecting bird’s eggs. When Lewis Carroll took photographs of Alice Liddell without any clothes on, it was considered rather sweet; and egg collecting was a gentleman’s pastime. Now having pictures of naked children is considered worse than being a Nаzі, and egg collecting thought of as atrocious vandalism.

    Having a sexual proclivity that offends society is genetic bad luck but at the same time its incurability means that to protect our kids we need to separate these people from society and basically LOCK THEM UP.

    Grass 'em Up! says:

    And Don’t forget that the Borough of Kingston whilst under Osbourne’s charge, FAILED its child safety & protection & subsequently stripped of its child safety role after a damning Ofsted report, in July 2012. As situation still in place.

    You also have a in place a nepotistic clique controlling the arts, where Child safety & chaperoning is poorly implemented and frequently abused (CRB’s forged). Where during its International Youth Arts Festival (IYAF), the DIRECTOR of the event was overheard saying to a group of under age (under 16) boys. “Can you see my tits through this?” .. referring to her top. – Not only is she still in post, she’s even been promoted, but the whole incident was brushed under the carpet.
    They also have amongst their ‘clique’ Jeremy James Taylor .. Go digging for the rumours surrounding this character, which no doubt have been buried, due to his ‘old boy’ network & Royal connections.
    The Lib Dems in Kingston are rotten to the core!

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
