Tick Tock Hancock

As we go to pixel, down in Portsmouth the future of self-confessed teen-fondler Mike Hancock is being decided by his fellow councillors. QC Nigel Pascoe has delivered his report into allegations Handycock sexually assaulted a vulnerable woman. A decision is expected this afternoon. Stay tuned…

    U call that Justice? says:

    Why is it being decided by fellow councillors and not a court of criminal law?

    Clegg, Friend to LibDem perverts says:

    Handycock, Cyril Smith, Rennard…

    Clegg did fuck all about Handy and Rennard, and he paid tribute when Smith died, even though it was common knowledge in the party he was a nonce.

    Is it just me or is Nick Clegg a bit of a c-unt?

    Will he wriggle out of it again ? Call in the police.

      Hello Gillian you silly old duffer, I’m collecting Labour’s annual membership subscriptions this week, would you like to give me your pension book, my yacht needs refuelling.

    In short, “nothing to see here, move along, he’s doing a great job for his constituents, this was a momentary aberation if anything (we’re not convinced there’s any truth to the allegations), everything will stay as it was. Look! An Owl! Over there!”

    Protection Racket says:

    So in other words, he’s got away with it and his friends will write a few paragraphs saying that he is without blame, a good egg and a faithful public servant.

    St Vincent of Cable says:

    Who’s Hancock? Never heard of him.

    I went pass the town hall today and the Russian flag was fluttering high above. That is a good sign for Handy.I will keep you posted if it falls to halfmast.

    No beards in Parliament please.

    In fact, no Parliament please.

    Point of Information 7 says:

    Obvious, but good to see confirmed that Dave had made his mind up on Syr!a prior to the vote:

    The article is worth a skim read to get a handle on what has been going on behind the scenes.

    Good quotes:

    ‘The United Kingdom pulled the plug on a joint operation two days after indicating to the White House it had the votes to proceed.’

    - This would have been before Miliband changed his mind. Cameron’s decision to call the vote was based on sensitivity concerning Bla!r / !raq according to this article, rather than concerns over the legality of such an intervention.

    ‘On Thursday, Aug. 29, the U.K. Parliament shot down Mr. Cameron, a major embarrassment to the British leader that raised pressure on the U.S. to seek other support.’

    - Parliament did speak, but Miliband’s partisan tom-foolery certain did not help matters. Perhaps if he had demonstrated principle from the beginning rather than switch after he realized there would be no benefit for Labour (perhaps a view endorsed by the Union’s) a lot of messing about could have been avoided.

    Keeping force on the table to coerce reluctant parties to the negotiating table is sound diplomacy. One hopes that government is reminded of this adequately now.

      I think Dave was rather pleased with ED’s treachery. Meant he didn’t have to go to war and could put all the blame on to Miliband. Though I think Dave was just a tad too quick in praising the will of parliament and happily going along with it. Despite what the mongs think, Dave did not have to ask parliament nor abide by its decision.

    Shock news. The Russian flag is now at half mast. Rumours are sweeping the City that Handy
    Is to face further investigation. Guido will update I’m sure.

    Kumon SC time for a re-think.

    Hands-off-cock is what everyone is telling me and Jacqui.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
