Boys-for-sale Parliamentary cover up grows

The head of the Director of Public Prosecutions - the woman who, against legal advice, decided not to pursue a prosecution against Lord Janner for buggering small boys over a 20 year period - was a member of the same barristers' chambers as the disgraced Lord.

When Lord Janner was first investigated in relation to sexual offences in 1991 he sought advice from the famous libel lawyer George Carmen QC who successfully represented Jimmy Savile when he threatened to sue a number of newspapers that were about to accuse him of child abuse.

Sir Richard Henriques, the retired judge who is currently reviewing the "errors" which prevented Lord Janner from being brought to trial in the past, is understood to have regarded the late George Carman QC as a friend and mentor at the Bar.

Simon Danczuk, the Labour candidate for Rochdale who helped expose the cover up of Cyril Smith’s abusive past, said it “once again shows all the hallmarks of a small clique of people who look after themselves.”

Savile and Janner linked to each other via Carmen

The CPS said Sir Richard was unaware of a connection between Mr Carman and Lord Janner when he accepted the DPP’s invitation to review the cases.

Cannabis in Hyde Park

Roughly 10,000 people attended yesterdays pro-cannabis rally in Hyde Park, Central London.

The odour of skunk could be smelled over half a mile away according to reports.  53 people were arrested of which 10 were given warnings, 6 were given penalty notices, 21 were given bail and 16 were taken into custody.

Stuart Harper of Norml UK, which planned the event, said police were generally accepting of the protest, “but … some people simply allowed their exuberance to overtake themselves."

Paul Birch, of the 'Cannabis is Safer than Alcohol' party said, "“You can’t stop events like today; it’s a global movement. That ship has sailed."

Th latest public opinion figures show that 49% of British adults are opposed to the legalisation of cannabis and 32% are in favour.  The 'those in favour of legalisation' figure is slightly down on previous polling results and may be due in some measure to the UK government's on-going propaganda war that continues to insist that "all drugs are equally dangerous".

Child sex abuse saga - another one off the hook

The Establishment continues to contrive to protect itself.

Lord Janner who faces charges of 14 indecent assaults on a male under 16 between 1969 and 1988; two indecent assaults between 1984 and 1988; four counts of buggery of a male under 16 between 1972 and 1987; and two counts of buggery between 1977 and 1988 will be let off.

The reason the CPS is declining to prosecute is because His Lordship is allegedly suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease.

Readers of this blog will be aware that the CPS has ‘previous’ for  delaying the prosecutions of those it favours in the old boy network.   Both Cyril Smith (MP) and Leon Britan (QC, ex-Home Office Minister and also a Lord) were allowed to grow old before serious charges were considered against them.

The ‘Alzheimer s Ploy’ has been used successfully before to dodge prosecution.  In 1990 Ernest Saunders, then the Chairman of Guinness PLC was sentenced to five years imprisonment for fraud.  He hired a number of private doctors to diagnose him with the onset of Alzheimer’s Disease, was released from open prison after 10 months, and then made a miraculous recovery.  Since then he has been appointed Chairman of the multi-national petrol credit card company Harpur-Gelco - not bad for a man doctors claimed was losing his mind.

Expect the Alzheimer's strategy to be used many more times in the coming months.

An attempt was made to prosecute Greville Janner, QC, 20 years ago, long before he, supposedly had Alzheimer.  His money and his many friends in the law, at the Director of Public Prosecutions Office and in Parliament managed to railroad the investigation.

How it all started?  The year is 1975: oil crises, financial crisis, nuclear missile crisis, sexual perversion - normal.

Dodge your tax and be a patriot!

"There is nothing sinister in so arranging one's affairs as to keep taxes as low as possible. Everybody does it, rich or poor; all do right.

Nobody owes any public duty to pay more than the law demands; taxes are enforced exactions not voluntary contributions.

Anyone may so arrange his affairs that his taxes shall be as low as possible; he is not bound to choose that pattern which will best pay the Treasury; there is not even a patriotic duty to increase one's taxes."

Our dangers, as it seems to me, are not from the outrageous but from the conforming; not from those who rarely and under the lurid glare of obloquy upset our moral complaisance, or shock us with unaccustomed conduct, but from those, the mass of us, who take their virtues and their tastes, like their shirts and their furniture, from the limited patterns which the market offers.

- United States Judge Learned Hand (1872 - 1961)

The politics of sexual sadism

Nearly twenty different police enquiries are now being conducted into the sexual abuse and murder of boys by senior establishment figures from the 1960s to present day.

How could this have happened in the first place and how could it have gone on for so long without being stopped?

The answer is these activities were carried out by the most senior figures in the land – politicians, civil servants, generals, royalty, church leaders and senior police officers themselves.  Many times the horror stories leaked out but there was a general conspiracy to keep it quiet, not least by the newspapers and TV companies of the day.

It should also be remembered that unsubstantiated stories of sexual abuse were small concerns compared with the external war being conducted against the Soviet Union and the internal war being fought against home-grown terrorists.

The Boy Who Listened To Rocks is a novel of that era which explores the disturbing predatory instincts of the human male – how MI5, MI6, the Catholic Church, Soviet spies in Downing Street, the energy crisis and nuclear weapons all become intertwined in the dark and secret world of those who derive a sadistic pleasure from controlling us.

The UK is a country sliding into chaos, the economy is in meltdown, the army is planning a military coup, MI5 and MI6 are trading boys for intelligence.  There is a boy - a gentle soul - with an unusual gift.  How long can he survive?

Cannabis is harmful - again!

Researchers at Maastricht University and IZA Bonn have carried out a statistical study of 54,000 course grades by students and have concluded that those students who were unable to purchase cannabis were likely to get 5% better grades.

This may be true, or it may not.  The assumptions made are, to say the least, unscientific.

1.  The assumption is that because cannabis availability was restricted in 2011 the resulting 5% improvement in grades by some students is directly related to that, whereas it could be due to many other factors including different grading criteria or, dare one suggest it, better teaching methods.

2.  No attempt has been made to assess the relationship between occasional and heavy consumption.

3.  The report is a "statistical analysis" and not a medical or physiological study.  The phrase "lies, damn lies and statistics" comes to mind.

4.  As ever, the most useful information is contained in the small print: the researchers state that the claimed 5% fall in grade attainment is equivalent to that observed in the US when students reach the age for legally consuming alcohol.  Worst case conclusion: excessive consumption of cannabis is broadly as harmful as excessive consumption of alcohol.  Shock-horror!

Police obsession with taking citizens' cars

Alaska police just raided the Alaska Cannabis Club - an organisation that legally sells cannabis for medical consumption.

No one was arrested.  Police "gathered evidence".  In particular they took away two vehicles: a Dodge Dakota and a Jeep Liberty.  The club will be lucky to see those again.

Ms Greene, a former TV news anchor woman said she was “incensed” the police executed a search warrant on her instead of focusing on a stabbing and shootings that happened nearby just a few hours before.
