Loony LibDem Councillor Guilty of Bombing Campaign

Readers will remember the case of John Larsen, the LibDem councillor charged with being responsible for a series of bombs that had blown up cars and damaged homes in his town. Larsen himself condemned the bomber:

“Everyone is jittery, checking their cars. It’s driving people round the bend. You just don’t know when or where it’s going to happen next and that’s why people are so frightened.”

But today a jury found him guilty of three counts of arson, one of causing an explosion likely to endanger life and another of possessing explosives with intent to endanger life, including blowing up a Land Rover. Another LibDem going down…

LibDem Council Chief Guilty of Child Porn Charges

Derek Osbourne faces prison after pleading guilty to possessing and distributing more than 5,000 indecent images of children, including 50 in the most extreme category possible. Another LibDem guilty of sex crimes, who’d have thought it. Guido hears there is more to come out with this one. Any statement from party HQ will have to be worded very carefully…

MacShane Trial Set For May Next Year

Good of Denis MacShane to turn up at the Old Bailey this morning, rather than, say, go on holiday like last time. Accused of submitting 19 bogus invoices worth £12,900, he will enter a plea on November 18. His trial in front of Mr Justice Sweeney, of Huhne fame, will provisionally take place on May 6 next year. Just in time for the local and European elections…

Sorry Iain Dale Accepts Caution for Assault

sorry

Iain Dale has broken his silence on that beach scuffle and has issued a full mea culpa:

“I want to apologise and say sorry to Stuart Holmes, who is a passionate campaigner and well known to everyone who attends party conferences and was perfectly entitled to do as he did on Tuesday in trying to get attention for his causes. It was totally out of character for me to react to him in the way I did. I also want to apologise for the blogpost I wrote after the incident. It was full of absurd bravado and in the heat of the moment I behaved in a frankly idiotic way. I have embarrassed not only myself but my family and my work colleagues and I apologise to them. I also want to apologise to Labour leader Ed Miliband and his conference attendees. Since the events of Tuesday I have gone through what happened over and over again in my mind. Whatever I felt at the time, nothing can justify what I did.”

Dale will buy the protester a new placard as reparation and has accepted a police caution from Sussex Police. Seems he’s fallen in to a bad crowd, hanging round with that Mr McBride too much…

Iain Dale’s Date in the Diary

The cops swooped after Iain Dale finished his LBC show last night, quizzing him about his seaside spat with nuke-nutter Stuart Holmes. He has to go back down Brighton to face more questions tomorrow by appointment with Sussex Police. He should be fine, it’s not like there is taped evidence…

Call for Union Regulator to Investigate Unite for Fraud
Unite Officials Could Face Four Fraud Charges Over Falkirk

FRAUD

certificationThe official trade union Certification Officer – who by law regulates trade unions – is being asked to investigate Unite over allegations that the signing up of Unite union members to the Labour Party in Falkirk without their knowledge or permission is an act of fraud. The Trade Union Reform Council (TURC), which is backed by 12 MPs, alleges that there are legal grounds for making 4 criminal charges of fraud against Unite union officials.

turc-logo

The Certification Officer has statutory powers to direct an organisation at any time, if he thinks there is good reason to do so, to produce relevant documents to aid his investigations, this could mean the Labour Party is forced to reveal the suppressed report of its own investigation into the goings on in Falkirk. The Certification Officer is almost certain to begin an investigation which could result in all the dirty washing being revealed. Fraud is an imprisonable offence…

No Show Yeo Incriminated Himself

No Show Yeo

Tim Yeo agreed to go on Sky’s Murnaghan Show last night and backed out this morning – perhaps he feared further incriminating himself. Guido believes that on the evidence of what Tim Yeo said on film to the Sunday Times he admitted to offences under the Bribery Act 2010.  Guido will be writing to Metropolitan Police Commissioner drawing attention to the evidence. When we did the same in the Jim Devine case he was sentenced to 16 months…

Drugs, Cash and Labour Leaflets

The Jonah curse struck again yesterday as the Prime Mentalist’s photo op pal Abid Hussian was jailed for a £19 million money laundering racket. Labour MP Fabian Hamilton turned up at his trial to provide a character reference, insisting that Abid was a “moral, honest” guy and that “it was far more likely it was a bag full of leaflets” than a bag full of drug cash that he was smuggling into the country. Leaflets like these perhaps?

Probably time to stop talking…
