CONFIRMED: Hancock Suspended

“The Liberal Democrats have this afternoon, for the first time, had sight of a Portsmouth City Council report by Nigel Pascoe QC into allegations of sexual impropriety by Mike Hancock.  Mike Hancock resigned as a Liberal Democrat MP last year in order to contest allegations of sexual impropriety in a High Court civil action. Given Nigel Pascoe QC’s conclusions in his report, we have immediately suspended Mike Hancock’s membership of the party.”

Lies, damn lies and LibDems…

      Gerald is the one who said
      “When I knock on doors in Portsmouth I find someone on almost every street who tells me how Mike Hancock has help make their lives better. Mike is by far the best MP this city has had for many years. I continue to think that Mike should continue to be allowed to continue his work for local people.”

    For the past few years, the Tories and their supporters have done their best to blame unemployment on the unemployed. They have been called lazy scroungers, we have been told about the “culture of dependency” Unemployed people have been told to get of the sofa and look for work. We have been told there is loads of jobs if people really want them.

    The one thing the Tories have steadfastly refused to do is accept that unemployment is an economic problem. No it has been portrayed as a moral failing on the part of the unemployed.

    BUT NOW

    Now its supposedly falling. the Tories have suddenly discovered that unemployment is in fact an economic problem after all and now they want to claim credit for bringing it down.

    So which is it? Is unemployment the fault of the unemployed? In which case, if unemployment is in fact falling, have the lazy scroungers suddenly decided not to be lazy and to get off the sofa and take one of the loads of jobs we have been told are there or is it actually an economic problem. In which case shouldn’t the government apologise to the millions of people they have been demonising for the past 4 years?

      The Tories never said any of those things at all. You made it up all in your tiny little head.

      But what I will tell you is this. Even during the supposed “boom” when Labour was pissing our kids income up the walls, there were still 2.5million people claiming they couldn’t work and claimed every benefit going. They had hard farmers working all hours to put food on their table and in return they gave nothing back.

      So do you know what my solution is? Stop bennies. Stop them all. In return, cut the taxes of working people. Then let those previously on bennies rely on the charity of their friends and family. And if they haven’t got friends and family willing to support them? Well what does that tell you about the kind of people they are? Let those fuckers starve – even their families will be glad to see the back of them.

            After confronting the thieves the businessman had to ensure one was down before tackling the other.

            He probably did not mean to break the legs of the first guy, but if he is putting someone down with a fence post (that had probably been used against him in the first instance as it was brought by the thief), then these things can happen.

            In that situation you have to make sure one of the assailants is both disabled and disarmed.

            Any twat who deliberately drives through a puddle to swamp pedestrians has broken the Highway code and needs to be dealt with. Myself if I spot this is going to happen and it’s not difficult I either pull wide, slow down or wait, indicate and move around.

        I think that their users are not particularly concerned about NSA type monitoring as they are totally unaware of the consequences.

        It seems to have been a fad which ran its time. I agree with you but know others, including illustrious posters here, who actually use it to do business.

        To the extent that it can cut across barriers normally imposed to keep the well known away from the riff-raff, it can be effective. Twitter uses the same walls down approach but on a much more limited scale.

          I think the early adopters who are finding that employers are using it to screen them are learning pretty fast, and word is spreading.

          For all of the pseudo-science in the article you posted above – there is an obvious point missed. Missed, I guess, because the experts involved are wanting grant money.

          Phenomena such as Facebook and other social media sites should be regarded in a similar way to the fashion market.

          There are some articles of clothing which are necessary and do not need revision. Eg: E-Mail services could be regarded as the analog of underpants.

          That flashy jacket or skirt you buy though – has no real utility value (maybe less than the less flashy varieties), but is a temporary badge or status whilst the fad is in. Trend can last a few years, few stick long term, but generally die out as peoples perceptions and interests shift.

          Facebook falls squarely into the fashion accessory end of the market.

          I mentioned a difference to twitter, as even though that platform is garbage, it does have a strong utility value. One of those is using it as a news source for on the second reporting.

          The future – if government gets it’s way – there will be a state run Facebook which is compulsory under statutory law with a physical smart card to be carried by all party members who are set up on it.

          Transgress against the community rules and you will have your access / card removed.

          It will of course be impossible to find work in the normal job market or access government services such as NHS / Benefits / Pensions without an Id card, and employers will be able to access the government run site in order to screen and provide private feedback to the state on how productive and party faithful the worker is.

        icke recently launched a 24/7 internet tv/radio station – crowd funded to the tune of 300k. some oh so kind technical bods gifted him a bunch of studio equipment for free, so all was looking great. week or so after the station launch things start to go wrong- namely the studio equipment kept crashing and is keeping on crashing and all of the 300k has been spunked… thus icke has been lamenting the station will have to close unless people gift the station even more money and all this plus he is sick from exhaustion so currently is having nothing to do with the station what so fucking ever other than reeling off 30 minutes rants in an attempt to raise the funds to keep the station running.

        strangely though he hasn’t been prepared to have the station broadcast any of his filmed lectures- but that’s okay because you can purchase them via his website.

        meanwhile though one wonders if he and his team have cottoned on to the fact that quite possibly that studio equipment they were gifted was moody. or the fact to have burned through 300k in a matter of weeks screams dodgy. he said a few weeks back that the station is going to release full accounts of all its expenditure… but nowt has been provided thus far.

        icke is a massive egotistical psychopathic twat. i once sent him definitive proof of the true meaning of “322” re: skull & bones society and the fucker for some unfathomable reason decided not to publish it, instead though he let me know in no uncertain terms that apparently i was a shill. what he did publish however was a picture of bush snr in a group skull & bones photograph i had sourced… did he give me any credit for that find? did he fuck!

          There are other smaller scale alt news outlets that are getting reach and are economically sustainable without having to rip off the gullible.

          This blog is one example, Exaro another and then you have outfits such as UK Column.

          Needle (another good example of a self sustaining and good alt news outlet) has been covering the exchanges, very impartially.

          Even Alex Jones manages to do decent business without needing to touch his listeners for exorbitant donations.

          There are growing whispers that I’cke is himself just a shill – a convincing one. These may be unfounded.

          What is certain though is that he is a somewhat ruthless and iffy business man, who for all the bluster, has made a lot of money out of selling a very specific brand of snake oil, which does include promotion of his son’s music career.

          The business model on his latest venture was completely shot, and I’cke may have left himself fully liable for the costs and inevitable litigation, which maybe is why he is bleating so much and dealing with ‘exhaustion’ (The Moran defence ?).

          Mixed bag – many may have given him too much credibility for being right about Jimmy Savile. Simple transposition fallacy.

            most of the wedge has probably gone on whoever is pumping out the live/repeat feeds. if he had chosen for it not to be a 24/7 operation the feed fees would be massively reduced and repeats could have been made available by simply using youtube. quite possibly he is using the same company that pumped out his pay for view wembley arena lecture without having investigated alternate providers.
            as for the programming there was the live breakfast style show which included icke reviewing the newspapers (cue him droning on and fucking on) but most people are too busy at that time of the day to watch any sort of breakfast tv.

            then there is the fellow doing the middle east program. no disrespect to him, i don’t doubt he knows what he is talking about but he has got facial tattoos for fuck sakes!

            fair play to icke about savile but the legendary late rev goatboy of popbitch fame not only posted info about savile way back in the day when jango was alive but also provided auditory evidence of savile behaving inappropriately (savile’s travels outtakes) years ago so that they could be released when savile had kicked the bucket. (and i was the one that hooked icke up with those outtakes via his forum… my reward? he banned me!)

        Verhofstadt is the epitome of the EU.

        Scruffy, ugly, lolling about in his chair and bellowing at anyone who talks down his project to become the Grand Mufti of Europe without firing a bullet.

        These fuckers better have fortified private islands to run to when it all blows up in their faces.

    Yes but he is still an mp and a councillor so still raking in our cash and still bringing the HoC and his local council into disrepute. Just expelling him from the libdems so he has to function as an Independent is NOT justice.

      It ‘s time to take a close look at the arrangement where an MP can also be elected onto a local council ,if as they will have us believe, being an MP is such a time consuming and demanding job it should not give them time to do anything else .
      Also if they happen to lose their seat in a general election they can still be troughing for another year or two at a local level until the next local elections when the voters finally have a chance to be rid of them.

    Hancock remains an Independent MP for Portsmouth South and an Independent councillor for Fratton ward.

    These are the big questions:

    Will the Leader of Portsmouth City Council keep Hancock in his Cabinet?

    Will the High Court case conclude (or indeed even begin) by May 2014, when Hancock’ s term of office as a councillor ends?

    Will Hancock settle, lose or win it?

    Will Hancock stand in Fratton as an Independent candidate in May, with local Lib Dem backing?

    Who will be the first Portsmouth Lib Dem councillor to resign from the Lib Dem Party in disgust at pretty much all of the above, plus a little dash of Rennard?

David Cameron on political promiscuity…

“On May 7 you could go to bed with Nigel Farage and wake up with Ed Miliband. Not one bit of that works for me.”

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
