£500,000 Expenses Fraudster MEP Jailed

skinner peter

Remember Peter Skinner, the Labour MEP who clocked up £500,000 on “expenses” while enjoying a lifestyle of lavish Hawaiian scuba diving holidays, expensive jewellery, and stays in top class hotels? The crook was jailed today for four years. He claimed he had simply been confused about the EU’s generous expenses rules. Brussels is rotten to the core…

EU’s Free Movement of Killers Not Scaremongering

scare

The Remain campaign is squealing about a list released by Vote Leave documenting 50 foreign criminals who were able to commit rapes and murders in Britain because of EU free movement. BSE say it is “scaremongering of the worst kind”, Owen Jones complains it is “grim scaremongering”. Is it, though?

Scaremongering is wildly speculating that something bad might happen in the future, with no actual evidence to back up the claims. Claiming the NHS might be under threat, France might stop cooperating over Calais, or that Toyota and Airbus might pull out of the UK, for example, are all quite obviously cases of scaremongering. 

Pointing out that Polish gangster Mariusz Florowski came to Britain then tortured his victim with blowtorch before killing him is a demonstrably true fact. As is noting that Vitas Plytnykas, an ex-Red Army soldier, came to the UK after 7 years in jail for murder in Germany, before suffocating another victim here. These aren’t lurid, unsubstantiated claims about something that might happen. They all did happen thanks to the EU’s free movement of criminals…

Labour PCC Candidate Calls Cops on Vicki Kirby

Race row Vicki Kirby has been referred to the police by Labour Police and Crime Commissioner candidate Kevin McKeever. He says:

Khan Met ‘Godfather of Internet Jihad’ Twice in Last 8 Months

On Monday the BBC is interviewing Babar Ahmad, “the godfather of internet jihad” who pleaded guilty to providing material support for the Taliban. For years there have been unanswered questions about Ahmad’s links to Sadiq Khan. Khan insisted Ahmad was innocent, their meetings in prison were bugged by the spooks, and Khan infamously changed his story about their relationship three times. Will this interview finally provide us with some answers?

In the New Statesman today, Khan admits he has met Ahmad twice since he was released from prison last July. He also claims he was never “close friends” with Ahmad:

“We never went to each other’s houses. We weren’t close friends but we knew each other growing up – we’d see each other at mosques. When you see people at the mosque you don’t discuss politics and stuff. It’s, ‘How you doing? How’s things?’ You may play cricket together, as most kids do at the park and stuff. I can’t remember having an argument about his views in detail.”

Yet this version of events is directly disputed by Ahmad’s sister, Sara. She says:

“Sadiq Khan has been a friend of Babar’s since they were boys and a wonderful supporter since his arrest.”

Monday’s BBC interview must surely ask Ahmad whether Khan is telling the truth when he says they were never friends. What did Khan say to the self-confessed terror supporter when they met in the last eight months? It is also a chance to clear up once and for all whether Ahmad has any further connection to Khan, be it by blood or marriage, that has not yet been declared publicly. Five years since Guido first asked, these questions have never been answered…

Ruffley Crashed Car After Four Glasses of Prosecco

Disgraced former Tory MP David Ruffley – remember him? – was found asleep at the wheel following a midnight prang near his Westminster home in January. The court heard today that

At about 12.30am members of the public flagged down a police car saying a car hit another car whilst parking.

On arrival, Mr Ruffley was slumped over his wheel and it was thought he was asleep.

His car was touching the Land Rover in front of it.

He said he had gone for drinks on Jermyn Street and had not eaten anything as he was on a fasting diet.

He told officers he didn’t think four glasses of Prosecco was too much, and told them “I do it regularly”.

Ruffers has been banned from driving for two years. Not helpful for his optimistic hopes of a peerage. That’ll come as a slap in the face.

Natalie McGarry ‘Arrested By Turkish Special Forces’

Former SNP MP Natalie McGarry – now sitting as an independent after resigning the whip in disgrace – has apparently been arrested in Turkey. Local journalists say she was detained in the Sur district of Diyarbakir by Turkish Special Forces. McGarry is a pro-Kurdish campaigner who has been critical of the Turkish government.

She’s already facing a police probe in Scotland over a missing money scandal. More as we get it…

UPDATE: Her office are refusing to comment on reports she was arrested, though she has now tweeted to say she is “safe“:

UPDATE II: Foreign Office confirms to Sky News that McGarry was arrested by Turkish special forces, her office say she has now been released.

UPDATE III: McGarry’s lawyer says in a statement:

“Natalie McGarry was questioned earlier today but was released shortly thereafter… It appears that a member of the Turkish Security Forces became alarmed as Natalie had her mobile phone out at a security checkpoint. She was taken away for questioning and it was subsequently explained that she was simply recording the sounds of bombs falling across the border in Syria.”

Jim’ll Fix It Staffer Alleges Drugs, Glory-Holes and BBC Corruption

SAVILLE

A former BBC employee who worked on Jim’ll Fix It gets in touch with his experience of Television Centre in the 1970s. Here is his account of drugs, glory-holes and widespread corruption:

I worked there through part of the period. Everyone knew. But the culture was highly sexist, phobic and ignorant. Sex was common currency in most aspects. There was a notorious “cottage” with glory-holes etc in one of the three “assembly” areas in TV Centre. Drugs were commonplace. Favours were sought and corruption was open. That’s the context. That’s why nobody screamed blue murder.

He was far from being alone! I worked on “Fix It”, albeit obliquely. Provided props and and support for the design team. You just avoided the ‘talent’ because he had a famous temper. His predatory sexual creepiness was the least of our worries. He was just a nasty piece of work who enjoyed getting people sacked or in all kinds of trouble. He had few friends amongst the staff. Dressers hated him and the famous cigars were bought in crates at the licence payers’ expense. Horrible man, but not the only one…”

And according to Dame Janet Smith’s report, not a single member of the management knew…

Paedo Tom O’Carroll’s Plan to Emulate Corbyn

Expelled Labour paedo and campaigner against “pedophobia” Tom O’Carroll’s blog is a pretty grim read. Back in September, O’Carroll wrote a disturbing post praising Jeremy Corbyn’s election as leader, implying he wanted the paedophile movement to take inspiration from how a man with controversial views had won “respect” after decades of sticking to his principles.

“The impossible just happened. The “unelectable” socialist Jeremy Corbyn has been elected leader of the Labour Party in the UK by a thumping majority, making him potentially the next prime minister. This earthquake was entirely unforeseen by the know-alls of political punditry… 

[Corbyn and Sanders] have been saying the same “wrong things” for decades, sticking to their principles and fighting for what they believe rather than slavishly following the opinion polls and focus groups. And now, suddenly and unexpectedly, they find they are being respected for it. They are seen as authentic. I wouldn’t mind a bit of that sort of reputation”

Not only does O’Carroll implicitly compare his campaign for paedophile rights to Corbyn “sticking to his principles” down the years, he says he wants to copy him. Dark…
