Patrick Rock Charged

Statement from the National Crime Agency:

On the authority of the CPS, the National Crime Agency has today charged Patrick Rock, 63, a former Whitehall adviser, with making indecent images of children and possession of 59 indecent images of children. He has been bailed to appear at Westminster Magistrates Court on 3 July.

The charges are:

- Three counts of making an indecent photograph of a child contrary to section 1(a) of the Protection of Children Act 1978, between 31 July 2013 and 31 August 2013

- One count of possession of indecent photographs of children contrary to Section 160 Criminal Justice Act 1988, between 31 July 2013 and 31 August 2013

The images have been assessed by NCA CEOP officers and CPS lawyers as meeting the definition of Level C.*

No.10’s bad day gets worse…

*Possession of images of erotic posing. Lower range of sentencing, likely non-custodial.

      So this the Rock on which Dave boy bought into government, personally chosen by Dave, as you say Fawkesy things just seem to be coming unstitched for Dave, is it he has a problem in choosing his advisers, either of you two Fawkeses could apply, just think all that lovely lolly, exes, and cheap drinkies you would be like pigs in muck.

        May I propose a solution for resolving the problem of all these paedos who seem to inhabit ‘the corridors of power’ – and anywhere else. It also prevents any risk of re-offending – hang them on their first offence. How many times does a nonce appear in court & as the trial progresses it turns out that the person has previous convictions & has ruined a number of lives throughout his noncing career? Hang ‘em high first time round – it’s cheaper too.

    Level C is not a CPS classification: That would be Internet Watch Foundation classification.

    Level C corresponds to imagery which does not involve sexual activity – penetrative or otherwise : Positive spin for No 10 there ?

    https://www.iwf.org.uk/hotline/assessment-levels

    CPS classifications are Level One (least serious) through Five (Beyond Savile) :

    http://www.cps.gov.uk/legal/h_to_k/indecent_photographs_of_children/

    IWF Level C would correspond to CPS Level One.

    Definitely not good for No. 10, but best not to jump the shark on this.

    They were meant to have had meeting on 8th May – nothing posted on their web sites.

    The guy arguing for socialism is very articulate and can express himself well – obviously the product of a steady and velvet education.
    How anybody with smart genes can support Socialism is a bit of an enigma, until you begin to think about the mating advantage that pseudo-socialism gives a guy. That public space was definitely not male-only.
    Many in this modern society have come to the realisation that dishonesty is a good tool for getting the good things out of life.

      I’m afraid that the commie comes across as a typical retard. He wasn’t really interested in listening to alternative views and equally wasn’t interested in trying to preach a coherent reason why anyone should regard socialism/communism as a viable template for living. These people are seriously deranged and the frightening thing is that we in the West allow them to breed. In other parts of the world, they’d be hanging from a crane.

      some of the younger would understand this.
      when I was younger I was ruthless in the matter of who I associated with or whether something would help my ambition or not. in my own case I was where I wanted to be at 23 and then I got married. there you go, share your mojo to another and you are fucked. because they do not have your interest at heart. they have their interest at heart.
      I say this because in selfish direction it is possible to make very speedy progress, whereas if we wait for every other dumb fucker who has a vote we will get nowhere.

      Dictatorships by person tend to do better public works I would imagine.
      I thought Saddam’s monumental arches and wotnot showed real artistic understanding, likewise that Berlin airport looks great and the VW is iconic.
      I think it is probably advisable, in order to see results, to deal directly with issues and if there is something that is unhelpful put a stop to it.

      Mycroft says:

      In law ‘downloading’ is not used as it isn’t a sharp enough word for use in law, so if you click on an image, to save it or expand it then that is considered in law that you actively ‘made’ the image on your screen.

      It does not (generally) mean buying a camera, procuring the subject matter and clicking away freely, but it can of course also include that.

      There are potentially huge problems with this that have yet to be argued in Court.

      It would be entirely possible to click on a link or one of the video inbeds on here and your computer hold the images, you’re stuffed without good representation.

      My computer has a rolling snap-shot function so I can find where I’ve posted without hassle, the law can screw me over very easily as a result as I have purposefully set my laptop for that and any link is recorded on my disk.

      I think the odd ‘iffy’ image would be hard to argue convincingly in a Court of law, lots of them and I think that’s ‘Hammer Time’.

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
