    It is my belief that those appearing in front of select committees should have to give their evidence in the nude.

    Moreover, their questioners should have to do likewise.

    That will strip, not so much the clothing, but the undeserved gravitas that these occasions confer upon the contributors either side of the horseshoe table.


  22. 31
    Officer Crabtree says:

    You tease Guido.

    Give us a clue. Is it: boys, money, drugs, animals?

    At least give us some indication.

    He’s been fitting up democratically-elected politicians to force them out of office? No, can’t be that bad, surely…


  26. 43
    Arthur says:

    Hopefully it will be something much spicier than misuse of police property, poking a junior officer or getting one of his mate’s sons off a DUI charge.

    A connection with the Rev Flowers or a career criminal like Denis McShane perhaps


  27. 46
    Disco Dave says:

    If he does exit stage left, will his replacement be the best man for the job or will other factors dictate who takes change?

          Mad Frankie Haddock and I have had a long running arrangement to hold a spit roast when a certain person who has no mates (allegedly) becomes available for our mutual delectation.

          His use of the soubriquet Cоdfather of Sоul led me to believe that your use of the last word (above) was a signal to me that NERO was he, especially as he uses caps for his monikas.

          The confusion, once started, is difficult to arrest, just like Hogan-Who.


          • smd says:

        • 222

          He was on South Yorkshire force as an inspector during the time of Hillsborough.

          Savile admitted that he had corrupted many police officers in that area.

          Hogan-Howe was very vocal about Savile investigation not being witch hunt, critical of the fact that information had not been centralized and pointed out that no one had been able to join the dots.

        Hi Diane,

        What do you think of the fact that the vast, vast, vast majority of shootings in our major cities are black on black?

        What do you think of the associated wall of silence from your precious ‘community’ that prevents the perpetrators being caught?

        To hear some people talk about those executions you’d think they were just some naturally occurring event, with no real need to actually catch the perpetrators.


        • 307

          Not just that, but the amount of black-on-white shootings is vastly disproportionate to the relative numbers.

          Very subtle, I don’t think.

          Adding the “Schrödinger’s cat” Website in order to make it look as if I had posted it.

          The only problem is you cannot write or punctuate in the way I do. Not even if you had attended school.


          • Keith Blakelock says:

            why does dianne fatbot get wheeled out every time a criminal from an ethnic minority gets turned over by the police?


          • Because if she had just one more IQ point, she could be classified as a geranium.

            But she uses her blаckness as a uniting point for her electorate:

            Never mind about thinking matters through, I am a blаck. I am female, I am fat. I am ugly. I can roll my eyes in my head. I can call anyone I don’t agree with ‘rаcist’ and, under the rules, the other side is finished. That is all that matters. You can win an argument over cleverer people than you just by using that trick, especially if you are in a BBC selected audience.

            It is reverse colour discrimination. Simple as that. It seems at times as if it is officially recognised by the law. If it were, it would not represent equality.

            Now, I travel regularly to Africa. I have many friends there in a number of countries. Some of them rank amongst the most intelligent people I know. So don’t anyone start coming onto me as being rаcist – because I am not. I make my mind up based on the evidence. If a white person is stupid, I say they are stupid. If a blаck person is stupid, I say they are stupid too.

            That is being even handed.

    EU Watch says:

    Here is the secret to the non recovery:

    Fed : 0.25%
    ECB: 0.25%
    BoE: 0.50%

    Highlighted ECB rate as UK ‘recovery’ started when ECB cut last year.

    Looking ahead, FED is likely to start raising rates, UK may remain ahead, ECB will trail. ECB needs to stimulate Eurozone, FED needs to sort the US book out and BoE will need to contain inflation.

    Expect an odd recovery with some prices falling (due to strengthening GBP – as it has been).

    Don’t believe the hype though: The underlying economy will remain shot until lending to businesses resumes. Due to the nature of the capital which is coming at present (short term – 2 week / 3 month kind of stuff) that will not happen for a while.

    Spike in 10Y Gilts reflected that international investors have waning long term confidence.

    Ed Balls is right about the main street economy, but wrong with the numbers. He perhaps is irritated that Osborne is going to take credit for this – but it was the ECB cutting which created the new ‘upturn’ in the the UK.

    Democracy? Don't make me laugh says:

    We live in a society where police, politicians, hospital executives and council executives are above the law. Just this week we learn that Met Police crime figures were fiddled and that whistleblowers reported dangerous goings on at Alder Hey children’s hospital which otherwise would never have been known. This on top of the Mid Staffs deaths and thug police officers getting off scott free over killing Ian Tomlinson and Jean Charles de Menezes. Add to that the Staffs hospital management have escaped any punishment and still work in the NHS, the politicians who enabled and then ignored the neglect and deaths are still in their jobs, and Sharon Shoesmith, who oversaw the Baby P scandal, got a million pound payout for unfair dismissal.

    Every 5 years we the little people are given the joke of a general election, where we supposedly have the choice to elect a government that serves us. In reality we’re offered two cheeks of the same arse with only slight superficial differences. The same corruption, the same crony politics and the same scandals ensue. No one’s held accountable and ordinary people suffer.

    Regular criminals who end up in prison have gone about their activities the wrong way. If they want to commit murder or abuse kids or let an old person die of neglect and get away with it, they should’ve become either politicians, police officers, politicians, NHS executives or council executives.

      A truly depressing post,but I agree with every word,Gawd help Britain.

      The term elective dictatorship was used some decades ago by Lord Hailsham to describe the so-called democratic process in the UK.

      In fact it was coined by Garibaldi, one of the founders of the modern Italy, a multi talented individual who wanted his country to shake free of Habsburg dominance and pursued irredentist ideals resulting in the Risorgimento. In the process his home town of Nizza, now Nice, was ceded to France by Cavour and he organised resistance to this, including riots.

      Back to Hailsham, he was aghast at the way Harold Wilson could pass so many laws with such a small majority. He felt it was not reflective of the will of the people in the same way a larger majority might have been but was simply achieved by manipulating MPs. Take note, oh ye modernisers!

      The curious thing is that many people from all quarters have been arguing for the end of the House of Lords because it does not have a democratic foundation. The reality was that, when it was more powerful, it often stood against the government of the day, whether Labour or Conservative. The irony is that the reduction in the influence in the House of Lords has led to less democracy and not more. You will never see this argued in the media but I fervently believe it to be true.

      The Law of Unintended Consequences was never better illustrated than this.

      Elective Dictatorship is thus an even greater problem now than it was then.

      It is a matter of conjecture that somebody who has just collected a gun can be considered unarmed in the ordinary sense of the word.

      Nothing has been revealed to suggest this was police execution, which you seem to be hinting at, notwithstanding your feeble attempt to dress it all up as concern for the future well being of the police in armed confrontations with criminals.

      Perhaps you would take a moment to explain to us why you are so exercised by the fate of a person who was the cause of his own downfall. Having procured a gun, and possessed of a record for violent behavior it was clearly likely that any police involved in his arrest were going to be edgy, to say the least. I suspect the polices’ dislike of being killed was a major factor in what happened, and I for one wouldn’t criticize them for that perfectly rational emotion.


      • 363
        Blowing Whistles says:

        Alan your opening sentence is your undoing – ‘collected a gun’ – the CH4 news of last night reported that the cops in pursuit only got a tip off that he was to pick up a gun and that they saw no exchange take place … another flaw in the whole legal process – irrespective of whether he was a gangsta or not.

FTAC therefore were directed to do the at arms length ‘bidding’ of whatever the Labour Government wanted them to do i.e. Silence dissent.

          Firstly I thought that A N Other has been found guilty of supplying the gun although I concede that at the time there may have been a lack of concrete evidence in the Police’s possession.

          Secondly, if the police had a tip off from a reliable and credible source that is relevant to their behavior and state of mind. You cannot be suggesting that the police are so in control of their behavior that this fact can be discounted in what they expect might be an armed confrontation

          Thirdly, he was a known gangsta as you put it, and police presumably perceived a serious threat to their safety, compared to arresting a drunk, for example. v53 could well have been quite frightened and decided to look after No. 1. Eminently understandable.

          A lot of people simply dislike the police, maybe with good reason, maybe not, but that doesn’t that mean everything the Police do is malicious and they deserve a fair hearing the same as any other group.

          This whole episode has a touch of the Raoul Moats about it. Fools demonising the police in contradiction of the recorded evidence solely on the basis of prejudice.

          Just heard Dianne Abbott trying to get the toothpaste back in the tube on Sky after her idiotic tweet. What an ar se in every meaning of the term.

        And if police have good enough eyesight to accurately shoot a man how come they cant see him throw a gun 20 feet over a fence.

        Did they all blink at the same time?

        Regarding your feeble attempt nonsense. Are you suggesting I want police officers to be killed?

        If so id ask you to withdraw that accusation

        Im concerned about anyone being needlessly shot and killed

        I dont mind police officers having a dislike of being killed but I would prefer it if those officers have good enough eyesight to be able to see someone throw a gun away and good enough to identify the difference between an armed and unarmed man

    It this An In House Bust? says:

    Something a bit fishy about the Met Commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe. It’s only a hunch based on years of snap and unsubstantiated judgements but I’d arrest him.

    It wasn’t just the bitey exchanges with the MPs on the Public Administration Committee. Truth to tell, the committee didn’t distinguish itself and it would be easy to get impatient with them.

    No, the man talks too much, and too often to conceal rather than reveal.

    During a previous committee appearance he had quoted a report which said the Met’s performance had been just fine. But in fact, the report had said Met performance gave “cause for concern”.

    Hogan-Howe’s explanation ran for a full fifty feet of videotape but is summarised as – “I was quoting from the executive summary and the criticism was in the text of the report.”

    The verbal slurry helped conceal the fact that the author of said report was Bernard Hogan-Howe himself. But then, why didn’t he remember what was in it?

    He had forgotten that he’d written it.

    He’d FORGOTTEN he’d – ?



    • 385
      Geedo Nails his man PT II says:

      Just turn off the tape and let me question him around the kidneys, Sarge.

      On the matter of fiddled crime statistics, had Hogan-Howe spoken to whistleblower PC Patrick as he told the committee he would?

      More low-value verbalising. No, he hadn’t specifically spoken to him as such, not personally. And why not? Apart from it being Christmas?

      Actually, they had approached him after his whistleblowing appearance in order to “enquire about his welfare”.

      That had been interpreted by the committee clerk as “trying to interfere with his evidence”. So, obviously, having said he wanted to talk to him he couldn’t talk directly to him in person, as such.

      And then obviously Hogan-Howe couldn’t speak to him about fiddled crime statsistics because PC Patrick is up on charges of gross misconduct for publishing evidence about fiddled crime statistics.

      The lesson from all this? “We need to learn what we can do to support whistleblowers.”

      Support them, you see, not “enquire after their welfare”. And the welfare of their children. Lovely looking little ones.

      Bernard Jenkin (whose hair is a crime category in itself) remarked that PC Patrick had been producing evidence of corrupt crime reporting for months and years and only after his committee appearance did Hogan-Howe take an interest in the matter.

      More slurry.

      Hogan-Howe is an odd one all right.

      The committee didn’t nail him this time. But life is long, and time, no doubt, will tell.

    So with the !ndependent’s article about endemic corruption in the Met, some corollaries :

    i) The focus on institutional rac!sm perhaps has been orchestrated by people to distract from this more deep rooted and serious problem within the force.

    ii) Given that officers appear to be easily compromised by criminal gangs, it would be foolish to assume that tactical armed units are immune.

    iii) Was the killing of Duggan ordered by a rival gang, or perhaps the person he was on his way to kill if that person had links to the police.

    One thing that has been strange is the focus on the wrong issues – race in this case – and the Met’s alleged desire to smear others involved.

        Have a good look at the history of the Beveridge Report and the Labour Government of 1945-1948 and the founding of the NHS. The Beveridge report was published in 1942. In 1943 there was a Tory sponsored motion to adopt the recommendations immediately but over a 100 Labour and ILP MPs voted against it. Bevan, especially was opposed to the idea. In 1945 the then Tory opposition were all for a National Health Service but wanted one based on local authorities, Labour-after much infighting, wanted a huge monolithic. centralised soviet-style organisation–and thus it became a stuff-up.
        Labour’s constant claim to have “founded the NHS”, is another of their half truths.

    Finally a bit of immigration debate on This Week. Kudos Mr. Neil.

    Abbot – utter bull sh!t.

    Portillo – recognizing that 75% concern for sure – recognized that it needs to be discussed. Pointed out need younger migrants in order to keep tax revenues up to pay for pensions – but most of the economic migrants who come here – especially the East Europeans – do not pay much tax here.

    Lib Dem made a rac!st point about the new immigration being white immigration from Europe, so it is surprising there is resistance.

    That argument ignores that the additional people pushes local young out the workplace and down the payscale. ie. GDP per capita goes down – the real economic issue.

    3 million over 13 years – Neil quoted.

    Portillo points out that UK cannot do anything about EU migration whilst UK is in the EU.

    – Perceived over crowding and reduced GDP per capita combined with real sense that there is no domestic control is what will decide the voters’ mind.

    The UKIP position wins in this context.

    So providing an executive summary can fail to reveal what is in the body of a report, then the rest of the world, who never bother to read the detail, is unaware of severe shortcomings of the body investigated.

    Those who never bother to read the detail have, on this occasion at least, included its author.


    1. The reports author is either a liar or otherwise completely incompetent thus being an unfit person to hold his job either way.

    2. The MPs, who form part of the Select Committee which questioned him, failed to put him on the spot sufficiently to secure his immediate resignation. Either there is some masonic-type racket at work (Common Purpose?) or they are likewise completely incompetent, thus also being unfit to hold their positions.

    3. We, the people, not only have to put up with this potentially fraudulent and probably criminal behaviour, we have to fund it.
