Hunt for the @DCMS Truth Tweeter

@dcms

The Maria Miller media witch hunt took a surreal twist on Saturday evening when the official Department of Culture, Media and Sport Twitter feed started tweeting the truth. This morning there will be an embarrassing situation in the department. Should they have a Whodunnit? investigation to find out the culprit and fire them for telling the truth? Meaning the only person fired as a result of, as the Twitter feed rightly said, Maria Miller embezzling and cheating the taxpayer, will be the only person who told the truth? Probably best if the Permanent Secretary just has the password changed and no more is said about the matter…

    The entire population of the Palace of Westminster should be locked up and the key should be thrown away.
    We need a new type of democracy where the people rule.

    It may be fun hounding her but is it just? Parents helping to look after your children are a very good thing. We have to trust the judgement of MPs. There is something distinctly unedifying about how people are putting the boot in here.

    The world would be a fucked up place if everyone told the truth. Everyone knows that politicians are lying scum, and that’s fine because it allows us to understand and comprehend what they really mean. It’s just as easy if they decide to tell the truth, it wouldn’t actually matter

    But imagine the chaos if they sometimes told the truth, and sometimes lied. They need to be consistent in the way that they communicate.

    They’re consistant in their greed, duplicity, lack of integrity, corruption, ineptitude etc, surely the electorate who pays their salaries has the right to consistency in their communication ?

    There has to a witch hunt, and a public sacrifice. For heavens sake they need to redirect the publics attention. Why isn’t someone’s head already in a spike ?

    With all the spin, it’s hard to know what the truth is !

    The press talk about the freedom of the press but it seems like half the press and politicians take this as the freedom to spin/lie, what about the peoples right to the truth?

    We agree. But not with our money. Most people earning much less do it at their own expense. It’s called following the rules.

    Now that they have found the “Black Box” from the Malaysian aircraft after an extensive search, the next big search will be trying to find an MP who is not troughing,lying,stealing or a pervert. This will be a long and difficult process.

    Don’t forget these are not, as the yanks would say, just nickel and dime operations. Sure, they may be peanuts to the average thieving MP or Lord.

    But what these fcukers take in just one of their little heists is several times the yearly wage of what they expect many of their constituents to live on.

    Re a new type of democracy

    Re a new form of Government
    What can we do? Elections are pointless. The legislature now only represent the interest groups that provide their campaign funds, not the voters. Over the last two parliaments, the legislature have made it legal for corporations to purchase the government. Those who own the government will decide what it does, not those who vote.
    All the British public can do is to accept the serfdom imposed on them or take to the streets and stay in the streets despite being clubbed, tasered, arrested, and shot by the police, who protect the power structure, not the public.
    In Britain, nothing is done for the public. But everything is done to the public.

    EyeSee says:

    See, I don’t think they can leave it at that over the Tweets. A member of a government department telling the truth sets a dangerous precedent, after all, we have been led to believe to date that it is impossible (and therefore not their fault) for government to tell the truth. It would be like listening to the wants and needs of the people! Then there would be a need to do some work on behalf of constituents, which would damage the time available for ‘outside’ jobs. No, finding and sacking someone who cannot toe the line is really too important to the wellbeing of the collective.

    The answer might be to hold an election and disbar any candidate who has previously held a seat in any local authority or is a member of any party who has ever held a seat in Westminster or any of the assemblies of the UK .
    No member of the legal profession should be allowed to stand

    Is Barron fucking her or what? There’s something very odd about all this. What a lousy lot of devious mendacious fuckers we have governing this country. They condemn the poor or disadvantaged for trying to get a piece of the cake but some of the twats in parliament are worse than all the benefit scroungers put together.

    Cameron can always play angry birds in the afternoon for a bit, and then speak to his father in law to check the latest rent payment from the windmills on the family farm has been paid at £500k pa.

    Other issues like the uks sovereignty and energy security and decimated armed forces can wait for another day.

    The Great British Public says:

    Is it just ?

    Are you joking….

    There is a distinct possibility she has broken the law.

    We need a national debate on what to do with a thieving MP like Maria.

    Perhaps she could share the plane to south Africa and spend her pre trial time there “getting her story straight…”

    Miller's cast-iron shield says:

    Useful, down-to-earth piece here from Fleetstreetfox which touches on Cameron at same game (as all MPs have been).

    Which is why he won’t/can’t shunt her.

    http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/maria-miller-no-honour-no-3385581

    Miller also did Cameron’s bidding on press regulation, so he’s her human shield now.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
