Tories Cry “Shame” as Watson Refuses to Apologise

After the PM told Tom Watson to “examine his conscience” over Leon Brittan, the Labour deputy leader refused to say sorry at the despatch box:

“Earlier the Prime Minister said that I should examine my conscience. Well, I think we all need to examine our consciences in this House. We presided over a state of affairs where children have been abused, and then ignored, dismissed and then distained. If anyone deserves an apology, it’s them.”

The Tory benches responded with cries of “shame”, but Bercow spared Watson any further grilling…

Cameron: Watson Should “Examine His Conscience”

watson

Self-appointed Nonce Finder General Tom Watson got a pasting in the weekend papers over his non-apology to Leon Brittan’s family. The PM is piling on the pressure today, telling LBC:

“It’s clear I think that he’s got a lot of questions to answer and the House of Commons Select Committees are quite rightly going to ask him some questions so I’m sure he should answer those questions and examine his conscience about whether he’s said enough so far … “

Corbyn also threw his deputy leader under a bus over the weekend (via @liarpoliticians):

“The investigations will throw up results, and I am sure whatever those results will be taken on board and if necessary we will deal with that with apologies if appropriate.  But I think you really should be asking that question to Tom Watson not me.”

Watson hasn’t tweeted for over a week…

Protester ‘Threatened to Rape’ Woman Outside Tory Conference

A 21 year old woman attending Tory conference says that an anti-austerity protester threatened to rape her as she waited for a taxi outside the secure zone. The woman, a young Tory student who has asked Guido not to name her, tweeted from her private account:

“Been outside the secure zone an hour and been threatened 3 separate times for walking down a road. Had to get a taxi 5 minutes up because some guy was threatening to rape me.”

Speaking to Guido on condition of anonymity, the woman said:

“I was on Oxford Road, I’d been at an event in the Palace Hotel. I was waiting for a taxi. He came up to me, barked in my face (don’t know why) I told him to get f**ked, he continued to stare at me and lick his lips/make actions and said “I’ll shag you” and then walked up the road backwards staring at me and continuing to bark. He just looked a bit scruffy and he barked at me (no idea why) and then was making threatening sounds and actions. I’m 21, 5 foot 3. As you can imagine: scared. There are others who feel threatened. The girl who I’m sharing a room with ran home in tears because she felt that threatened walking home.”

“A kinder politics…”

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…

Moment BBC Cameraman Floored

Uh oh:

This is the moment it happened:

Was it assault or an accident?

UPDATE: Further video from the Belfast Telegraph. Labour are saying it was a Government Car Service driver who knocked him over:

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…

Read: Harvey Proctor’s Extraordinary Statement in Full

The full extraordinary statement [WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT]:

I am a private citizen. I have not held public office and I have not sought public office since May 1987. As such, I am entitled to be regarded as a private citizen. Since the General Election of 1987 I have sought a private life. I have been enjoying a full life, gainfully employed and personally happy.

This all came to an abrupt end on 4th March 2015. What now follows is a statement on my present predicament created by an unidentified person making totally untrue claims against my name. Before going any further I wish to make it clear that the genuine victims of child sexual abuse have my fullest sympathy and support and I would expect the full weight of the law to be used against anyone, be he ‘ever so high, or ever so low’, committing such odious offences. Nobody and I repeat, nobody is above the law.

2. However, I attach equal weight to justice for innocent people wrongly accused of child sexual abuse, especially when it is done anonymously. This is what is happening to me and many high profile figures, many of whom are dead and cannot answer back. This statement is necessarily lengthy and detailed and at times complicated. Please bear with me and at the end I will be prepared to answer your questions.

3. On 18th June, 2015, at my request, I was interviewed by the Metropolitan Police Murder Squad “Operation Midland”. This interview lasted over 6 hours. At the very outset I had to help the Police with my full name which they appeared not to know. It may surprise you that it was over 3 and an half months after my home was searched for 15 hours and more than 7 months after the most serious allegations were made against me that I was interviewed. I went on to cooperate fully with the Police with their investigation.

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…

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…

Janner Will Face Arrest If He Doesn’t Appear in Court Tomorrow

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…

Police Probe Over Heath Child Abuse Allegation

Full statement from the IPCC:

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) is to investigate allegations concerning Wiltshire Police’s handling of an alleged claim of child sexual abuse made in the 1990s.

It is alleged that a criminal prosecution was not pursued, when a person threatened to expose that Sir Edward Heath may have been involved in offences concerning children. In addition to this allegation, the IPCC will examine whether Wiltshire Police subsequently took any steps to investigate these claims.

The allegations were referred to the IPCC by Wiltshire Police following allegations made by a retired senior officer.

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…

‘Paedo’ MP’s Late Night Toilet Lurking

A youthful male parliamentary source gets in touch with a strange tale about the MP at the centre of Sunday’s paedophile allegations:

“He is always weird in the toilets. His office is surrounded by Tory MPs’ offices and their male researchers.

Several days each week he goes into the loo on [LOCATION REDACTED] to put on his aftershave.

He has said “hello young man” to me in there at least twice.

Once my mate was in there late at night and [NAME REDACTED] said to him “Now aren’t you a good boy for staying late”.

If I wasn’t a 6ft guy, I might have felt a bit intimidated at [NAME REDACTED] saying “hello young man” to me whilst entering the toilet. I was leaving as he came in so we were pretty close. This happened twice.”

Dark.

Police Investigate Sexy Shower Scene MP

It’s been a busy first few weeks for new Plymouth MP Johnny Mercer. First he put his wife on the public payroll, then hit the headlines for lathering up topless in a shower gel advert, and now he is under investigation by the police. That escalated quickly.

The preened poser has lawyered up after bitter opponents called the cops in over his election expenditure. Mercer mysteriously told supporters he needed “some manpower, and a decent dose of Commando Spirit” on “the night-time of 6/7 May”.

The next day, polling day, his defeated Labour opponent Alison Seabeck claims she “suddenly woke up with every bridge and every lamppost covered in posters and fliers”, claiming this “does influence people significantly and it is improper”.

Mercer himself paid for the £1,642 clean up out of his own pocket and insists:

“I am confident I haven’t broken the law and this allegation is being dealt with by my lawyers.”

Well, he looked clean in the advert…

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.”
