Judge Savages Janner Lawyer, Threatens Arrest

janner

Greville Janner failed to turn up to court today despite the orders of the judge, his legal team instead arguing that he should be allowed to appear by video link. Fair to say Emma Arbuthnot, the Deputy Senior District Judge, was less than impressed with Janner’s lawyer Paul Ozin:

“Even if I have to have him arrested I will have it resolved today. I am warning you… stop messing around.”

He must appear in person by 2pm…

Paul Ozin, for Greville Janner, challenged the legality of the decision to force him to come to court tomorrow.

But Lady Justice Rafferty and Mr Justice Irwin disagreed, he will have to appear…

Judge Rules Janner is Fit to Attend Hearing

Lord Janner was absent as his child abuse proceedings began at Westminster Crown Court today. Dr James Warner told the court:

“There is no doubt in my mind that Lord Janner has dementia and that it is severe… The only possibility here is progressive deterioration… There is no chance he will improve from his current state… [he] would find the whole environment potentially very perplexing and bewildering”

Yet Judge Howard Riddle ruled that Janner is fit to attend and has asked why he can’t turn turn up this afternoon…

Ted Heath’s Whip Boasts of Paedo Cover Up

“Anyone with any sense who was in trouble would come to the whips and tell them the truth, and say now, “I’m in a jam, can you help?” It might be debt, it might be a scandal involving small boys, or any kind of scandal which a member seemed likely to be mixed up in, they’d come and ask if we could help. And if we could, we did. We would do everything we can because we would store up brownie points. That sounds a pretty nasty reason but one of the reasons is, if we can get a chap out of trouble, he’ll do as we ask forever more.”

The words of former Tory MP Tim Fortescue. Who was appointed a government whip in 1970, by one Edward Heath

‘Granny-Bashing’ Labour MP Has Case Kicked Out

Readers will remember the curious case of Marie Rimmer, accused of kicking a woman at a polling station before the election. Marie is now the Labour MP for St Helens South and she was in court to face assault charges today, only to have her case somewhat ironically booted out on a technicality:

Another stunning CPS success. Rimmer’s lawyer tells the BBC the Crown could mount a second prosecution…

Loony Lutfur’s Deputy Incriminates Himself

Ohid Ahmed is a councillor in Tower Hamlets, where he used to be Lutfur Rahman’s deputy mayor. In a Facebook post almost as ill-advised as his old boss’ penchant for bribery, Ahmed appears to have incriminated himself using his phone while driving:

In the comments below his post, Ahmed is asked by a friend whether he was in the passenger’s seat, to which he replies: “I often stop when I see a good view”. Guido will let readers make up their own minds about whether it looks like he stopped before he took his phone out.

We report, you decide…

Child Abuse Inquiry Chair Vows No Whitewash

Bold words from Justice Lowell Goddard, announcing the terms of the Child Abuse Inquiry this morning:

“No one, no matter how apparently powerful, will be allowed to obstruct our inquiries.”

Government institutions have been told not to shred docuements and Goddard says she will name names. She reports back by the end of 2020…

Theresa May Urged to Launch New Handycock Probe

Self-confessed teen fondler Mike Hancock might have lost his seat but he is not out of the woods yet. The Tory, Labour, UKIP and even LibDem group leaders in Portsmouth have all written to Theresa May demanding that the police take action:

Dear Mrs May,

We, the undersigned councillors of Portsmouth City Council, feel compelled to write to you about the failure of Hampshire Constabulary to investigate and take appropriate action regarding allegations of serious misconduct surrounding former councillor and MP Mike Hancock…

As you may know from national press reports, the careworker for a vulnerable adult (known as ‘Annie’) with mental health issues reported to Hampshire Constabulary in 2010 that Cllr Hancock had sexually assaulted or harassed Annie, in proper compliance with the Safeguarding Adults Policy.

Janner ‘Raped and Tortured Children in Parliament’

Campaigning MP Simon Danczuk has used parliamentary privilege to reveal the dark allegations against Lord Janner, including that he abused young boys in parliament:

Simon Danczuk: The shocking thing is that the CPS admits that the witnesses are not unreliable. It admits that Janner should face prosecution, but refuses to bring a case.

MacShame’s First TV Interview: Send Him Back Down

Denis MacShane has surfaced to try and flog his prison diaries. Choosing the softest of soft interviews, MacShame was his usual unpleasant self on the Victoria Derbyshi*e Show:

The whole video is worth watching for MacShame’s total lack of contrition, his blaming of his colleagues for doing him in rather than the coppers and the CPS, and some extraordinary defamation of Grant Shapps regarding nom de plumes.[…] Read the rest
