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.”

Government institutions have been told not to shred docuements and Goddard says she will name names. She reports back by the end of 2020…

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.

How FIFA Tried To Distract the World at Its Annual Conference Today

14 FIFA officials have been charged with corruption and their President is facing calls to resign, but that hasn’t stopped football’s governing body from rolling out the red carpet for the opening ceremony of its annual conference today.

Maybe they were hoping the FBI would be distracted by their glamarous host:

All culminating bizarrely with a lady pirouetting in a circle again and again:

Police Investigate Alleged Electoral Fraud in South Thanet

Kent Police have launched an investigation into alleged electoral fraud in South Thanet.

UPDATE:

Birmingham Muslims “Ordered” to Vote Labour

The picture below shows Ansar Ali Khan and Mariam Khan, the two councillors who organised Labour’s sex segregated rally.

Behind them is Labour MP Khalid Mahmood.

It has been posted on Facebook alongside the caption “All Pir Sahiban and Darbars in Birmingham have ordered Mureeds to Vote Labour in elections”. A mureed is “a person wishing to dedicate himself to Islam”. Muslims in Birmingham are being “ordered” to vote Labour.

If proven, this would arguably be in direct contravention of the same undue spiritual influence laws of which Lutfur Rahman was recently found guilty. The law states:

“A person shall be guilty of undue influence if he… makes use of or threatens to make use of any force… or inflicts or threatens to inflict, by himself or by any other person, any temporal or spiritual injury… to induce or compel that person to vote or refrain from voting”

“Ordering” Muslims to vote a certain way comes pretty close to that…

Is there any famous wrong’un who isn’t backing Miliband? Stan Collymore, who kicked his girlfriend in the head and told her he was going to “f**king kill” her, says “vote Labour”.

Of course, Collymore has a local connection to Cannock Chase, it being the scene of his dogging shame. He confessed: “Over the last couple of years I have been to dogging sites maybe a dozen to 15 times, and yes I have taken part and had sex during them”.

The modern Labour Party: segregators, doggers and woman-beaters all welcome…

Another Labour Fraudster: Candidate Convicted Six Days Before Polling Day

Six days before polling day and it’s the end of the line for one candidate already. Labour have been forced to suspend their prospective MP for Wellingborough after he was convicted for fraud. Despite attempts to cover his tracks, Richard Garvie has been found guilty of buying train tickets worth almost £900 using a card for a closed bank account. His defence was that it was all a big conspiracy to stitch him up because “I have been active in helping people who have been treated wrongly by train companies”. He had the means, he had the opportunity, he had the loco-motive…

Ruthless Nicola’s Dollgate Denials

dollgate

Shocking revelations in this morning’s Sun:

As with the furore over the French Consul’s embarrassing diplomatic report, the denial is less than convincing:

If as a child Sturgeon was prepared to hack the top off a Barbie doll, will she now use her power to do the same to Britain?

UPDATE: Another happy reader:

Despite her previous denial to the BBC, Sturgeon now openly admits to ruthlessly hacking the hair off a Sindy doll:

Nicola claims she has reformed:

Has she really?

Top Labour MP Admits Shoplifting on Camera

“Labour is the only party with a plan” for tackling crime, insisted Yvette Cooper today as new figures reveal recorded crime has risen by 2%. Presumably that plan doesn’t involve Labour’s custard cream-claiming kleptomaniac, Stella Creasy.

Video has emerged of St Ella recalling “those heady days” before she became an MP, when she and her friends were “stealing bagels from Sainsbury’s and arguing about the state of the world”.

Seems Stella has a thing about not paying for her snacks…

‘Union Thug’ Proud of Riot and the Labour Manifesto

Here is a hard-hatted Labour supporter captioned “Andy, docker” in the party’s manifesto:

Ordinary “Andy” looks remarkably similar to Andy Green, the Unite convenor at Tilbury Docks and a member of the union’s executive council.

Green proudly boasts that he attended the infamous 2006 dockers’ protest in Strasbourg, which descended into widespread violence.

The BBC reported that “protesters threw firecrackers, stones and metal missiles, smashing windows and causing considerable damage”. 13 dockers were arrested and 12 policemen were injured. But this is how Labour’s poster boy described the day, alongside a picture he posted of the chaos:

“It made me proud to be a docker, to be there fighting for my fellow dockers, fantastic solidarity.”

Green also gave a 5-star review to the ‘Union Thugs‘ Facebook page.

Surely they cannot be the same docker named Andy?

Labour are investigating…

Labour’s Manifesto Writing Top Copper in Racist Murder Corruption Probe

Ed Miliband and Yvette Cooper are launching Labour’s ‘Crime and Justice manifesto’ this morning, yet for some strange reason there is no mention in the party’s press release of the man who did all the work. Labour’s top cop policy artichect was commissioned to carry out an “independent review of policing” in 2013, and when he published his findings Labour said they would spend “the next 12 months consulting on the report’s recommendations before setting out its plans in next year’s manifesto”So where is he today?

Lord Stevens was last night placed under investigation over allegations of a cover-up in the Stephen Lawrence racist murder inquiry. Two years ago Cooper explained: “We asked Lord Stevens to lead the commission because we need a positive vision of policing for the 21st century”. Wonder what Labour peer Doreen Lawrence has to say about it all?
