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.

        Dave should resign now says:

        I think you forgot pictures of young boys and girls, naked and posing with some fluffy teddy bears and monster cocks.

        There may be sandals out of focus in the POV shots.

        Those would be stuffed between the lentils, Marx for dummies and back issues o the local focus group news letters.

        Hopefully the police will not miss those.

        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.

    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.

    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.
