LibDems Warned in September About Cllr Charged with Rape
Accused Labour of ‘Playing Politics’ with Allegations

The Liberal Democrats were warned about their councillor charged with child rape back in September:

As Guido revealed last night, they only suspended him yesterday, after months of accusing Labour of ‘playing politics’.

Another lost letter…

      So what happened when he faced trial in December?

      Guilty?
      Innocent?
      Delayed?

        He pleaded “Not Guilty” and it’s ongoing. We should remember that, strictly speaking, he’s still presumed “innocent”. The law of the mob may be attractive and easy, but it’s really not a good idea.

        He should have been suspended earlier, though.

      That is your problem Nick, you think the Liberal Party is on the same footing as the BBC and most church groups who handle these gross allegations internally when they should be reported to the police.

      Why did Jimmy Savile get away with it for 50 years?

          They put him on a pop music programme where he was able to touch up teenage girls

          Then they put him on a programme where kiddies were to sit on his knee while his “Fixed it” for them.

          I think the word you were looking for is “encouraged”.

      Innocent until Proven Guilty says:

      Nigel Evans still has the Tory Whip and he has also been charged with r@pe, multiple r@pe.

      So why should this LibDem councillor be treated any differently?

      Nigel Evans was also cheered by our MPs when he stood down as a deputy speaker because he was facing trial for multiple r@ape.

      So why should this LibDem councillor be treated any differently?

            The manifesto he wrote was 16 pages long. The Tory manifesto at the same election was 170 pages long.

            The comments Brillo claimed were in the UKIP 2010 manifesto were NOT in the UKIP 2010 manifesto (I’m guessing that’s why Brillo gave Farrage the right to his Weatherman slot the other day – probably felt a bit guilty and Farrage demanded a right to reply)

    BBC One’s EastEnders must “reflect the modern world” and changes in London, having been “frozen in aspic” for too long, the soap’s new boss has said.

    Dominic Treadwell-Collins said: “EastEnders has to sing new songs, otherwise it doesn’t feel fresh.”

    The drama was recently revamped, with Danny Dyer as Queen Vic pub landlord.

    Since the show began in 1985, east London has taken off, with Shoreditch and Hackney now attracting “hipsters”, art students and technology companies.

    The BBC recently unveiled plans to build a new Albert Square, which will replicate the original but also be 20% bigger so they can open up new locations to film in.

    “It should feel more like London. It’s been frozen in aspic for too long,” Treadwell-Collins told the Radio Times.
