Keith Vaz - Evidence Based Policies

Recommended Posts

Well I for one find it very refreshing that a politician heading up a major reform of the laws governing prostitution and drugs is prepared to give up his free time to experience their effects first hand rather than just pontificating about a subject upon which everything they know is merely what they've read in the newspapers.

I was going to respond that there are some MPs trying to make the laws more sane. Vaz is not one of them.

Then i followed the link.

Nice to see he's continuing as before - bringing in foreign people to the UK.

Looks like hes bent in both the meanings of the word.

And I note that the BBC, for whom Vaz is a hero because of his strong Remoan and pro-immigration credentials, has not reported this at all.

Not just failing to put it on the front page, not a single mention yet.

Tick tick.

Keith Vaz is in it for Keith Vaz alone, I've always thought him odious

Still, I was glad too read that he has his eye on the ball

While waiting for a message back from potential matches, the MP then got into a discussion with the escorts about the price of houses in London – before the elder escort interrupted, asking: “What do you want?”

No.

He'll support you if you pay him enough.

Is it not odd that it would be The Mirror reporting this?

That struck me too. The only thought that occurred was that there are likely to be people who have been gunning for Vaz for a while, a decade or more. Vaz has clearly had some protection in the past and maybe that has now gone. I'm puzzled. To me, it smacks of a sting (either journalist led and based upon a tip off or because the escorts knew who Jim was and that they could sell the story); the questions asked carefully covered all the bases, sex, drugs, immigration, houseprices :lol:

Isn't he a Catholic, Blair seems to have backed him regularly

I don't read it but given the Brexit vote and the fragmentation of the Labour party might it be trying to reposition itself back to being the paper of the working classes and ditching the Blairite metropolitan establishment of Remoaners?

Worth adding that Vaz killed a 1990's probe into the Janner allegations......

One of the worst things about Vaz is that he is a landlord:

The whole Brexit thing is a manifestation of a behind the scenes power struggle between factions. The pawns are being removed and the strings cut on various puppets.

Couldn't happen to a nicer politician.

Didn't Viz do a comic strip of him, "nothing washes as white as Vaz" ?

Wow! That escalated quickly.

The question is... why now?

Chucking in a live politician for sacrifice to appease the masses who have seen through the ruse of vilifying only dead ones.
