          It’s interesting that Mr Justice Sweeney said that the sentence in part reflected
          Harris’, abuse of trust that the public had in him. Strange such considerations weren’t made at the time the crooked MPs were being locked up, looking at the pathetically light sentences handed out.

        spot on – in dick crossman’s diaries are notes of politicians’ admiration had for ‘pop’ and related meedja back in the 1960’s – wilson’s public wooing of the beatles (sic) reflected this

        here were what the politicoes thought were true professionals – in touch(sic again) with the ordinary person

        the relationship is as our helpful bbc spokesperson has noted – circular

        The sentences that I impose are as follows:

        Count 1: 9 months’ imprisonment.
        Count 2: 6 months’ imprisonment consecutive.
        Count 3: 15 months’ imprisonment consecutive
        Count 4: 15 months’ imprisonment concurrent
        Count 5: 15 months’ imprisonment concurrent
        Count 6: 12 months imprisonment concurrent
        Count 7: 15 months’ imprisonment consecutive
        Count 8: 12 months’ imprisonment concurrent
        Count 9: 12 months’ imprisonment consecutive
        Count 10: 9 months’ imprisonment concurrent
        Count 11 9 months imprisonment concurrent.
        Count 12 12 months’ imprisonment consecutive

        The total sentence is therefore one of 5 years and nine months’ imprisonment

        Why did the home office get rid of that dossier which Leon Brittan claims to have no further recollection of? Because it allegedly had information about the Elm Lea Guest House attendees, which include very famous celebrities, politicians, (including Leon Brittan), intelligance agents, Judiciary, seniour police, and links to Royalty. Start linking them all together and you soon get a chain which implicated a massive chunk of the heart of our establishment.

    Fucking Hell says:

    The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) was fined more than half a million pounds for owing HMRC £4m in VAT.

    The fraud watchdog used to reclaim VAT on legal fees and some specialist staff.

    After a new chief financial officer reviewed its VAT policy, the SFO decided to stop re-claiming VAT on external counsel fees in December 2012.

    In 2013, the SFO, which investigates the most serious and complex cases of fraud, bribery and corruption, asked HMRC to confirm how it should account for recovered VAT on outsourced services.

    “These discussions, coupled with an HMRC assessment which took place in October 2013, led to the SFO having a liability for reclaimed VAT in previous years… amounting to a total of £4,635k [£4.6m] including a penalty of £564k, interest of £104k, accrued tax of £798k and outstanding tax of £3,169k,” the SFO said in its annual report for 2013-2014.

    It shows that the £660,000 in penalties and interest were accounted for as programme costs under civil litigation – sums that one might assume should be devoted to pursuing wrongdoers.

    The annual report indicates that £1.9m of the VAT repayment was accounted for as fees for legal counsel, £580,000 was included as other staff costs; and £17,000 under IT costs.

    The VAT bill was partly responsible for the SFO net operating costs rising from £38.1m in 2012-13 to £51.7m. Costs associated three “blockbuster” investigations were also to blame along with a £200m damages claim from businessman Vincent Tchenguiz for malicious prosecution, trespass, false imprisonment and misfeasance in 2013.

      Just goes to show, Murdoch really is cleaner and more ethical than the whole of the BBC.

      For a bit of listening in to unsecured voicemails, he closed the News of the World (which, considering Coulson has been found guilty, only after Cameron insisted on full investigations, (both police and independent inquiry), I wonder why Labour never launched an investigation into hacking, or why the very politically biased Met Police under Commissioner Blair, never had a full criminal inquiry at the time when coulson was sacked from the News of the World?

      Anyway, Murdoch shut the News of the World over a few years worth of listening in to unsecured voicemails…

      The BBC has harboured, enabled and covered up for several predatory paedophiles FOR FIVE DECADES.

      Op.Ore was a disaster and it still is one.

      It was based on their being only one crime, they forgot to check entirely if any of the names from the credit cards used were cloned.

      The use of cloned cards lead, after Op.Ore was shut down, to the realisation that the real p’does had also been in the card cloning game on a massive and comprehensive scale.

      Op.Ore was the stupidest of stupid investigations because of it’s own blinkered remit.

      Op.Ore was, and remains the largest, omni-shambles in UK policing history.

      So screwed up was this investigation that they even arrested the person who was given the remit to unlock the Hard Disks, they gave him the disks, he took them home (where he worked) they got a warrant and arrested him for having child porn at home.

      Just read the above again… do it a couple of times!

      Then rather than saying “Whoops, that was a bit daft wasn’t it!” they carried on with the case against this chap right up to the day before his trial. The Court had to threaten the Chief Constable with ‘contempt’ to get things sorted.

      I wouldn’t hold too much store in the Op.Ore thing… any of us who owned a credit card in 1998/9 and paid for fuel at certain petrol stations in three main towns in the UK might be subject to it’s jaundiced eye.

      To the idiots on here voting liblabcon, that’s what you’re getting. Labour filth cover up Tory filth cover up Lib Dem filth.

      It’s well past the point you liblabconers can bleet about ignorance as to what the westminster establishment are really like. By continuing to vote for these criminally corrupt parties, you are complicit in their actions.

        Miranda was at it once. Fined £50 and banned from lavs.
        All the suspects have their photos on the web. Now there’s an eye-opener, amongst other openings.

    Yeah, there’s definitely two legal systems in this country, as demonstrated by the Rt Hon David Laws M. P. Having trousered £30,000 in fraudulent expenses claims, conduct that would unquestionably land you or me in the clink, he gets to sit on the back benches for a year before being appointed to the cabinet!

        I had sex with a public employee in circumstances that should have led to me being charged with misconduct in public office. Now I sit in the House of Lords. Can you guess who I am yet ?

    To Google

    Under the ECHR right to privacy please delete all references to Rolf Harris, Jimmy Saville and Stuart Hall.
    Any crimes they committed were all well in the past and they, and us as their employer, should be free to get on without constant reminders in the media of long ago misdemeanors.

    Yours sincerely,

    Kaftan Jenny-Barrington-Inshalam,

    Deputy head of deputy heads,
    BBC legal

    PS.

    Please also delete any reference to “Bonekickers” as that show really stunk and could be harmful to the careers of anyone involved..

      Just like all jazz greats are heroin addicts all painters are pervs.

      Vaughan Williams liked a bit of a grope as well.

      Philip Larkin used to spy on girls with a telescope and wrote dirty stories about schoolgirls with Kingsley Amis.

      John Peelused to go on and on about schoolgirls on his radio programme before it became unfashionable.

      Why don’t we do it the other way round…which person active in the world of arts and entertainment was a moral and upright individual? Might be quicker.

      By the way, are great scientists pervy as well?

David Cameron drug policy reformer and leadership contender in 2005…

“Politicians attempt to appeal to the lowest common denominator by posturing with tough policies and calling for crackdown after crackdown. Drugs policy has been failing for decades.”



“Digger” Murdoch says:

Is it just me, or is Nigel Farage just a top hat and a monocle away from being a Batman villain?
