Gordon Brown And Labour’s Worst Moments In 2009

2009 has been Gordon Brown’s annus horribilis (yes there is probably a Mandelchump joke in there) the financial saviour of the world could not save his own country, as the financial predictions of Brown and Darling were proved not only wrong, but so wide of the mark as to be laughable.

The scandal of MP’s expenses exploded in to the news courtesy of the Telegraph, and continues to cause massive tidal waves with today’s news that the Met Police have sent 2 further files on MP’s to the Crown Prosecution Service, making a total of 6 MPs and Lords in the frame. The expenses scandal initially reflected badly on the Government and Gorbals Mick the speaker, then backfired on Gordon Brown as he has had to pay back more money he should not have claimed.

The things claimed have verged from the ridiculous to fraud for non-existent mortgages, there will doubtless be some sacrificial lambs next year to satisfy the blood lust of voters rightly incensed over the abuse of taxpayers money by people they trusted.

The rising number of casualties in Afghanistan, the shortage of helicopters, equipment and funding blew up and did Brown, Ainsworth and Labour no favours.

Gordon Brown’s inability to admit there will have to be cuts in spending, the infamous 10% Tory cuts smear when government departments were preparing 20% cuts, 50% income tax and the resumption of class war and politics of envy have all failed to resonate with the public.

Then there was the slow motion car crash of the Labour party conference, the Sun pulling the plug on Labour support and Mandelson redefining the meaning of “Chump”. Read the rest of this entry

27th June 2007 Brown Becomes Prime Mentalist And The Country Sinks Into The Abyss

By Tory Aardvark

Two years and four months ago the cursed one eyed son of the Manse was a crowned Leader of the Labour Party and unfortunately for this country became Prime Minister.

Listen to the words he comes out in the video and then compare what he says with what he has done.

The economy ruined, reckless spending to try and stop the economic slide caused by his incompetence, selling the Armed Forces short, Lies and Smears against anyone who dare speak out against the Party and Dear Leader. The creation of the Labour Political Elite who are above the Law; the laws in some instances they have created.
From the whitewash to save the Attorney General to the latest cover up to protect the Redditch Saddleback, Brown his Labour Party and his Government are comparable only to one other country. Zimbabwe.

DPP Says Tory plans to scrap Human Rights Act would bring shame on Britain

Keir Starmer appointed by Baroness Scotland

Keir Starmer appointed by Baroness Scotland

The Director of Public Prosecutions is supposed to be a politically netutral position, yet here we have a former human rights lawyer appointed by Baroness Scotland who is now criticising the policies of a political party. This is unheard of and will ultimately bring the office of the DPP into disrepute.

Starmer’s appointment runs until 2013, so he has already put himself at odds with the Conservatives should they win the General Election which is looking increasingly likely.

However in an outspoken speech last night to mark his first 12 months as DPP, Mr Starmer set his face against any change to the current law and said it was a “lie” to describe the legislation as a “criminals’ charter”.
He said: “I find myself in difficulty when I hear talk of the need to ‘re-engineer’ or ‘rebalance’ the criminal justice system. Such talk usually emerges after a particularly questionable decision which receives undue notoriety.

Starmer should now resign as he has polluted his tenure as DPP by taking political sides, but like his boss the Attorney General he will continue on regardless.

There is very little of our Government that Labour sleaze has not ruined or tainted, the General Election cannot come soon enough so that the cancer of the Political Elite can be removed.

Baroness Scotland – I Want A Jaguar

By Tory Aardvark

The leading member of the Labour Political Elite, employer of illegal workers, breaker of own laws and person most protected by Labour Baroness Scotland wants a Jaguar.

A big cat to keep the illegal workers under control and prevent them getting nasty Max Clifford involved?

Let them eat Priius

Let them eat Prius

No, one of the finest luxury cars in the world made in Britain.

Chauffeur driven Jaguars are normally reserved for senior government ministers, not the Attorney General, who rates a Toyota Prius.

Labour has harped on about low carbon emission vehicles and ministers of the Attorney Generals rank are only allowed a car that emits 130gm/km or less, not the 209gm/km of the Jaguar.

Once again Labour’s political elite are saying “Dont do as I do, do as I say”

Baroness Scotland Investigated By The Bar Standards Board

By Tory Aardvark

The story of Baroness Scotland and her illegal worker has been running for some time now. The Labour Government have as usual applied the double standards it uses to protect it’s own; ordinary people who fall foul of the Attorney General’s own laws get prosecuted, she has merely made a mistake understanding a law she personally pushed through on to the statue books.

If you need a quick reminder about the story so far click here

The Law Giver

Baroness Scotland

The Bar Standards Board is the barrister’s watchdog and is investigating the Baroness following complaints that she brought the profession into disrepute.

There are still a number of unanswered questions regarding the existence of a second passport, paying the illegal worker in cash and now there are allegations of theft from the illegal worker’s home.

Anyone with honour would have resigned by now, but as there is no honour or integrity in Gordon Brown and his morally and intellectually bankrupt government she is the still the Attorney General.

Baroness Scotland The Heat Is Back On

By Tory Aardvark

This is not proving the best weekend ever for the Government, following on from the slow motion car crash that was the Labour Party Conference two of their ministers, who are both QC’s are in trouble with the law again. Yesterday the Deputy Labour Leader was on a mobile phone when she crashed into a parked car. So not only was breaking the law by holding a mobile phone, she drove away from the accident, with out stopping and without giving any of the details required under the 1988 Road Traffic Act.

The lastest revelations in The Mail about Baroness Scotland and her illegal worker concern further alleged breaches of the Law, this time Employment Law.

The housekeeper’s P60 states she was paid £2,913 by Mrs P. J. Mawhinney, the Baroness’s married name, up until April . It also states no tax deductions were made, contravening the Income Tax (PAYE) Regulations 2003

Harriet What Have You Done?

By Tory Aardvark

The patron saint of equality could well have made the single biggest mistake of her career today, well if we had a government with honesty and integrity it would be a mistake. With this current government personified by spineless leadership, white wash and cover up, it will probably not matter one iota.

Harriet Harman Leader of the Commons

“According to police sources, Ms Harman is being investigated for driving without due care and attention, driving while illegally using a mobile phone and failing to stop after an accident, the most serious of the three offences”. more from James Millbank in The Mail

What sort of investigation can we expect? Will it be the sort of high speed white wash that has been attempted with the Attorney General?

Lord Ahmed

Then there is the case of Labour Peer Lord Ahmed.

Jailing Lord Ahmed for 12 weeks, Mr Justice Wilkie said he had considered a suspended term because the dangerous driving had not caused the crash. But he added: ‘It is of the greatest importance people realise what a serious offence dangerous driving of this type is.

Martin Gombar died after being hit by a car driven by Lord Ahmed

Mr Justice Wilkie :”By reason of the prolonged, deliberate, repeated and highly dangerous driving, only a custodial sentence can be justified.

He said Ahmed, whom he banned from driving for a year, “must serve half the term before being released“. Full story in The Mail

Ahmed should have served half the sentence which is 42 days, he was released after just 16 days.

Chris Grayling accuses Brown of attempting to “whitewash” Baroness Scotland’s employment of illegal housekeeper

By Tory Aardvark

This story keeps rumbling ever onwards as Shadow Home Secretary Chris Grayling has today written to Labour Home Secretary Alan Johnson:
I am writing to you concerning the investigation by the Borders Agency into Baroness Scotland. You will be aware that the investigation was concluded within forty eight hours of the story about her housekeeper first breaking, and that the Agency ruled that she had inadvertently broken the rules for those who employ migrant workers.

“This investigation appears to have been concluded with a speed that is almost unprecedented for such inquiries, and the Agency appears to have reached its conclusion without carrying out a detailed interview with the housekeeper herself. Furthermore the employee’s evidence, as now published in the media, appears to directly contradict that given by Baroness Scotland.

“Given this, it seems extraordinary that the Border Agency appears to have carried out such a cursory inquiry, and reached its conclusions so quickly.

“Can I urge you to reopen the inquiry into Baroness Scotland, and also to carry out a full internal investigation into how this enquiry was handled last week. Can I also ask you to clarify what role Ministers had in the inquiry process, either in setting its remit, in briefings or discussions with Borders Agency officials, or in mandating other Departmental officials to make representations to the Borders Agency about the investigation.

“I am sure that you appreciate the importance of clearing things up and resolving this matter once and for all, but also that the process is thorough and treats Baroness Scotland in exactly the same way as any other employer.”

Chris Grayling Shadow Home Secretary

Previously Chris Grayling has issued this statement:

“This unedifying row just underlines why Baroness Scotland’s position is now completely untenable. But it also raises huge question marks over the way the Home Office and the Prime Minister have handled the case. The Home Office rushed through an investigation without listening to all the evidence, and the Prime Minister exonerated Lady Scotland before the housekeeper had even been questioned. This is increasingly looking like an attempted whitewash that has gone badly wrong.”

You are not alone there Chris, Patricia Scotland is not only above her own laws, she is also protected by the highest echlons of Labour power who WILL stop at nothing to ensure she stays in her job.
The speed at which the rules on peers expenses were U turned is nothing short of amazing.
Today for the first time the resolve to keep defending the Baroness showed the first signs of cracking, with Jack Straw’s last ditch defence of “sexism”, the old and worn out Labour ploy of suffixing a word with “ism” or “ist”.

If indeed there has been a cover up or whitewash then should not those complict in the cover up be brought to account along with the Baroness?

Jack Straw “Campaign against Baroness Scotland is Sexist”

By Tory Aardvark

In possibly the most stupid and ridiculous statement since the massive coming together and cover up started, Justice Secretary Jack Straw said the campaign against Baroness Scotland was sexist.

No Jack it’s not sexist, it’s just people dont like law makers who break their own laws, expenses troughers who have rules changed so that they have not wrongly claimed £170,000 of tax payers money and then lie to the UKBA about which documents they have seen, or not seen.

The sooner Baroness Scotland, Jack Straw and the rest of this intellectually and morally bankrupt government are gone the better.

The Baroness, UKBA and the alleged 2nd Passport

By Tory Aardvark

The story continues with news that the passport found at the cleaner’s flat had expired some time before she went to work for the Attorney General, so either the Baroness was shown a second passport, or she never peformed the checks required by the law she piloted on to the statute books.

So far no evidence has been uncovered that supports the Attorney General’s story, which potentially leads to some interesting questions that the UK border agency will want answered.

toastequation

“Consider the implications: if, as Lolo claims, she did not have a second passport it would mean that for the Baroness to be telling the truth, Lolo would have had to presented her with a false forged passport. Forged passports do not come cheap, demand from drug traffickers, terrorists and other criminals ensures that the black market in passports commands high prices. How would a cleaner applying for a £6 per hour job afford to obtain a forged passport? If Lolo is telling the truth than the Baroness has possibly lied to investigators from the UK Border Agency.” more from Guido

Last week saw the rules on expenses changed to get Patricia Scotland off the hook, can Brown change the law to save her, or will she indeed be toast tomorrow?
