Bringing Jacqui To Justice

Recommended Posts

Solicitors Instructed To Smack Jacqui

You may have noted that the Sunlight Campaign for Open Politics is bringing a private prosecution against Jacqui Smith over her expenses.

The official charge brought to magistrates will be one of Fraud by Misrepresentation.

Sunlight instructed lawyers with the London firm Bark & Co, which specialises in fraud and hunting down benefit cheats.

The group hopes to raise the costs from public donations which, according to Guido's blog, are not in short supply.

Harry Cole, of the centre, said: 'There is so much public anger about expenses and the police have shown no willingness to take up cases, so we're taking the law into our own hands. 'This will be an expensive test case but it could lead to dozens of others.'

Hafta admit, I chipped in here. I find the whole 'no wrongdoing' culture of New Labour hard to take.

All the same, I'm sure there'll be some implementation of the anti-terror laws, or a House of Lords move to scupper the case.

You may remember that it used to be possible to bring civil cases for War Crimes in Belgium before Iraq. When someone tried it, Colin Powell leaned on Brussels to quickly repeal a law dating back to 1946.

There's also an update on Guido Fawkes (who chipped in £5,000)

Is that american 'shock jock' fellow still suing her for lumping him in with the mass murderers, tyrants, terrorists etc?

We've heard nothing for a couple of months. He wanted 100K and an apology. Well, he didn't get an apology.

Perhaps Sunlight should touch him for a contribution to this action. He'd probably be pleased to chip in.

I have just donated.

Ok, so now Labour HQ has me name and address, but who cares.

Dear MI5, your job is to protect the state, not the state apparatus ;)

Don't worry about it - they'll be a few of us in the cells with you :(
