Corbyn’s Woman-Beating Economics Adviser

24 hours after Harriet Harman admonished Jeremy Corbyn for his poor record on women, the Labour leader appointed woman-beating economist Thomas Piketty (above left) as his new star adviser. Piketty was charged with domestic violence for assaulting his ex-girlfriend on March 17 2009. According to a member of the French Socialist Party: “The details of what Thomas did to Aurélie are quite shocking – they drove her to contemplate suicide”. Despite Jezza’s new adviser admittingthe facts of violence” and apologising, the charges were dropped at the request of the victim. Corbyn and McDonnell say they are “delighted” Piketty is joining their team…

Labour now have:

Corbynistas will cry that these are smears, but they are all true…

Shadow Chancellor: Arrest Blair!

Labour’s Shadow Chancellor has demanded the police “arrest” and “prosecute” Tony Blair. Speaking in 2013 to ‘Chunky Mark’, the mental Marxist taxi driver who uploads x-rated interviews with left-wing figures onto YouTube, John McDonnell said:

“I have been supporting a campaign where we’ve been seeking to arrest Tony Blair every time that he comes to this country. We’ve had people going along to the Metropolitan police stations and presenting them with evidence on a regular basis that Tony Blair should be arrested because we believe that he should be brought before the Hague… we need to bring the liars into court so we can then prosecute them.”

Well that’s one way of purging the Blairites…

Tory MP Calls Cops on Downing Street Terror Demo

Hendon MP Matthew Offord was at the Palestine Solidarity Campaign / Hezbollah demo at Downing Street, and is calling in the cops. He reckons the charming chap above and other machine gun flag wavers have committed “a criminal offence under the Terrorism Act“:

“I shall be taking this issue up with the Metropolitan Police Commissioner to ensure action is taken against any individual who may have committed a criminal offence. I understand the police cannot intervene in such a situation that could lead to greater public disorder but such behaviour should not be dismissed without a proper investigation. While some people want to demonstrate, there are limits to acceptable protest and the glorification of terrorism and terrorist originations is not acceptable.”

At least one Hezbollah supporter has already been arrested:

He’ll be having a “dialogue” with his lawyer down the nick…

Sacked Labour Councillor Arrested Over Child Porn Claims

Earlier this month Thurrock Labour councillor Terry Brookes was suspended by his party without explanation. Despite local rumours that he can skipped town after the police raided his house and took his computer, Labour have kept tight-lipped on the issue. Now we know why…

Let’s hope he doesn’t have dementia…

Granny Basher Labour MP Candidate Back in Court

Marie Rimmer, the 68 year-old Labour MP for St Helens South will be back in Court this week. Readers will remember the curious case of Marie Rimmer, accused of kicking a woman at a polling station before the election. Her case was booted out on a technicality a few weeks ago. The case has been re-raised and another hearing is due this week. Hopefully the prosecutors can manage to prosecute the case this time without tripping up…

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.

Child Abuse Inquiry Chair Vows No Whitewash

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

CPS to Prosecute Janner: Full Statement

“The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Alison Saunders will now bring criminal proceedings against Greville Janner for child sex offences.

This follows a review of the case under the recently introduced CPS Victims’ Right to Review scheme, which allows victims to have their cases looked at again, no matter who in the CPS made the original decision not to prosecute.

In the past year the scheme has meant that more than 200 prosecutions have been brought that would not have been brought otherwise.

In April this year the DPP decided that there was sufficient evidence to prosecute, meaning that, in her view, if there could be a full criminal trial a jury would be likely to convict Lord Janner. However, the DPP considered that it was not in the public interest to prosecute. This was because there was undisputed medical evidence that Greville Janner was not fit to stand trial which meant there could not be a full criminal trial and he could not therefore be found guilty of any offence and because he was not a danger to the public. It was also in light of the fact that the DPP sought assurances that the complainants would have the opportunity to give their account to the public inquiry led by Justice Goddard which has been set up to look at cases which may have been mis-handled in the past.

Without the compelling medical evidence the DPP has made clear that she would have brought a prosecution.

In May, six of the complainants in this case requested a formal Right to Review, and at the DPP’s request, David Perry QC was instructed to provide advice to inform the CPS review of the decision.

The review concluded that it was in the public interest to bring proceedings before the court.

In reaching that conclusion, the review agreed that although there is sufficient evidence to prosecute, it is right to assume that Greville Janner will inevitably be found unfit to plead and therefore not fit to instruct his legal team and not fit to challenge or give evidence in a trial. Therefore the most likely outcome of a “trial of the facts” would be an absolute discharge, which is neither punishment nor conviction.”

It’s going to be a long day for Alison Saunders.

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. We have been informed that two male police officers then visited ‘Annie’ and counselled her not to pursue her complaint, because Cllr Hancock was a powerful person…

In the light of recent similar cases, where Hampshire Constabulary have admitted failures in procedure and in fact paid substantial damages, we view this situation to be of professional concern and unacceptable. We would therefore urge you to order an independent inquiry as to why Hampshire police have taken no action in this case, and, if necessary, make direction that the case should be looked at again by a police force other than Hampshire Constabulary.

We believe that this is the only way in which public confidence in Hampshire Constabulary might be restored in this case. This letter is a summary; all points raised in this letter can be evidenced.

We would appreciate a full, written reply to this letter which is of great importance to victims of alleged sexual abuse.

Yours faithfully,

Cllr Luke Stubbs, deputy Tory council leader

Cllr John Ferrett, Labour group leader

Cllr Steve Wemyss, Tory group leader in 2010, when the matter first surfaced

Cllr Colin Galloway, Ukip group leader

Cllr Gerald Vernon-Jackson, Lib Dem group leader

Handycock went from 18,921 votes in 2010 to 716 in 2015, so the people of Portsmouth certainly cottoned on that he was a wrong’un. Significant that all four parties are demanding action…

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. I know the police are furious about this, and rightly so. Anyone who has heard the accusations would be similarly outraged. I have met Leicestershire police and discussed the allegations in some detail: children being violated, raped and tortured, some in the very building in which we now sit. The official charges are: 14 indecent assaults on a male under 16 between 1969 and 1988; two indecent assaults between ’84 and ’88; four counts of buggery of a male under 16 between ’72 and ’87; and two counts of buggery between 1977 and 1988. My office has spoken to a number of the alleged victims and heard their stories. I cannot overstate the effect that this abuse has had on their lives.

To sum up, I want to make the following points about the case. If Lord Janner really is too ill to face prosecution, why cannot the courts establish this with a fitness-to-plead process? This would clear up doubts that still linger. For example, why was he still visiting Parliament on official visits after he was declared unfit to face justice? Why is he able to contribute to the law-making process in the House of Lords, but unable to face the law himself? If it is found that he is genuinely too ill to stand trial, why not conduct a trial of the facts? This would allow the victims to tell their stories and gain some sense of justice. The DPP has said that a trial of the facts would not be in the public interest. Personally, I fail to see how the knowledge that a peer of the realm is a serial child abuser is not in the public interest.

Mrs Anne Main (in the Chair): Order. I caution the hon. Gentleman about alleging anything against Lord Janner and making assertions about his guilt or innocence.

Simon Danczuk: The Director of Public Prosecutions has said that Lord Janner will not offend again. But the failure to prosecute Lord Janner offends every principle of justice. He may not abuse again, but the legacy of the abuse continues. His victims need the truth and they need to be heard.

No justice.

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. Obviously he backs a pay rise for MPs.

He also claims that he started fiddling his expenses when he was a BBC journalist, and only pleaded guilty “because his savings were gone”. He’s still churning out that tired old line that he made no personal gain from his expenses troughing. Which makes you wonder what he did with all those laptops, and that garage. 

Clearly prison has not reformed this man; he seems to laugh off the fact that he was sentenced to six months in prison for defrauding taxpayers of £13,000 in forged receipts.

Even Derbyshire concludes that he is ‘shameless’.

Send him back down.

Carswell’s Most Wanted

xizsuyoz7ekeeseowuyo[1]

Police are appealing for the public’s help to identify three individuals they wish to speak to following an incident in Westminster on the evening of Wednesday, 27 May.

The images have been released after a 44-year-old man was surrounded by a group of protesters and verbally abused outside St James’s Park tube station at around 18:00 hrs. The man had left the station and was making his way to a nearby bus stop when protesters who had attended and earlier demonstration began to threaten and intimidate him. He was trapped by the group and was prevented from returning to the tube station or getting to the bus stop.

Police arrived to provide assistance to ensure that the man could safely move away from the protesters. He was escorted to a police vehicle which a number of people attempted to prevent from leaving. The man was driven a short distance away from the group.

Police are keen to hear from anyone who may recognise the three people police wish to speak to in connection with the incident. Any information provided will be treated in strictest confidence.

Anyone who recognises those in the images or anyone who has any information is asked to contact the Public Order Investigation Team on 0208 246 0076 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

+ On Sunday, 31 May, police arrested and charged a 20-year-old man with section 4 Public Order Act 1986, using threatening words or behaviour.
