Europol Co-Operates With 18 Non-EU States

Dave’s scaremongering got even sillier yesterday when he claimed Brexit would mean Britain loses intel on “terrorists running around Europe”. Last night the director of Europol, Rob Wainwright, joined in, claiming Britain would be “much less effective” at fighting terrorism if we left the EU. Really?

Europol says on its website that

“because organised crime does not stop at international borders, it is also essential to have cooperation initiatives with non-EU countries”

16 years ago, the EU authorised the director of Europol to enter into negotiations on cooperation agreements with non-EU states. Today, Europol has operational agreements with 14 non-EU countries:

Albania, Australia, Canada, Colombia, Macedonia, Iceland, Moldova, Montenegro, 
Norway, Republic of Serbia, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Monaco and the United States.

It even has strategic agreements in place with Bosnia & Herzegovina, Russian Federation, Turkey and Ukraine.

Why would Europol share information on terrorists with these non-EU countries and not Brexit Britain?

CPS Missed Three Chances to Nail Janner

janner

A independent inquiry has found that the CPS could have brought Lord Janner to justice three times, but failed to do so. The damning findings also lay into the “inadequate” police investigation. The report found:

  • The decision not to charge Lord Janner in 1991 was wrong and there was enough evidence against him to provide a realistic prospect of conviction for offences of indecent assault and buggery. In addition, the police investigation was inadequate and no charging decision should have been taken by the CPS until the police had undertaken further enquiries.
  • In 2002, allegations against Lord Janner were not supplied by the police to the CPS and accordingly no prosecution was possible. This merits investigation by the IPCC.
  • There was sufficient evidence to prosecute Lord Janner in 2007 for indecent assault and buggery. He should have been arrested and interviewed and his home searched.

So, who was responsible for him getting away with it?

Farage: “I Made a Terrible Mistake” Talking About ‘Assassination Attempt’

After the wheels came off the Farage assassination attempt story, Nige tells LBC he probably shouldn’t have spoken to the papers about the story. He did also tell LBC on Sunday that “someone clearly had loosened the wing nuts on all four of the tires of my car”. UKIP are convinced the details of the incident were leaked out by a senior anti-Farage figure in the party…

Whistleblower: “CCHQ Failing in Duty of Care”

The CEO of the Conservative Party has been accused of failing in his duty of care by a whistleblower who is the victim of an extraordinary attempt to silence her. Yesterday Guido revealed how a young female witness had received a phone call from a man claiming to be a police officer, threatening her with arrest if she made public allegations of bullying. The caller, who sounded like a “middle aged man”, said he was an officer at Lewisham police station, yet refused to give a name. In an email to Lord Feldman and CCHQ CEO Simon Day, the whistleblower recounted the call:

“They told me that should I comment or repeat my allegations, or contact XXXXX again, they would arrest me. The police officer then mentioned my involvement in the Conservative Party and that “it wouldn’t look good if you got arrested”. He then told me to “grow up” and to not confront people and let my friends, some of whom have been affected by this bullying scandal, to make the complaints to the police. This person also made some personal comments in regards to social media and how he saw it as a medium for bullying.”

Lewisham police station have no record of the call being made. They are now investigating the police impersonator attempting to silence witnesses.

Simon Day responded to the whistleblower’s email, explaining he had passed details of the complaint to the British Transport Police, the force investigating the death of Elliott Johnson. However, despite someone calling young Tory activists attempting to intimidate them, Day refused to have anyone at CCHQ look at the incident. This is his legalese excuse:

“The Party can only investigate alleged acts of members of the Party. In the event that you establish the name of the individual who undertook this act, we will of course look to investigate such a complaint against a member of the Party. Any complaints are investigated in accordance with our formal disciplinary procedures as established by the Board of the Party.​ If I can be of any further assistance please contact me.”

A remarkable way for the CEO of the Tory party to respond to a young female activist who is the victim of shocking intimidation.

The whistleblower, who has asked to remain anonymous, tells Guido:

“Because I couldn’t identify the person on the phone, CCHQ are shrugging responsibility. Someone is being intimidated due to their involvement in the party and they are failing in their duty of care.”

Yet more textbook handling of complaints by young Tory activists by CCHQ…

Corbyn’s Plea For Pensioner-Scamming Fraudster

corbyn

Surely this tweet from CourtNewsUK could not be accurate?

Well, according to Mohamed Dahir’s barrister at the Old Bailey today, it is. Dahir and two other gang members preyed on the “frailty, vulnerability and isolation” of victims in their eighties to defraud them out of £600,000. Yet Corbyn wrote a letter to the judge asking for Dahir to be granted bail so he could spend Christmas at home, insisting his constituent wouldn’t abscond:

“He understands the need to be here. He has been here on every occasion.”

The judge ignored Jezza’s bizarre plea and the pensioner scamming b*stard will be behind bars on Christmas Day…

REVEALED: Muslim Convert’s Threats to Tory MP

Muhammad Mujahid Islam, a Muslim convert whose birth name is Craig Wallace, was in court today accused of posting threatening comments to Tory MP Charlotte Leslie. Guido can reveal Islam’s Facebook posts made the day after the Syria vote, in which he threatens to “smash her windows then drop a bomb on her hoyse [sic]”.

In a separate abusive post, Islam makes another violent threat:

No prizes for guessing which politician he does like, though:

He pleaded guilty and was remanded in custody…
