Shadow Minister Arrested

Good plan. Keeping it fluid. You are right about the blood bit though. With this Government in charge I do not discount anything.

I think the situation in Thailand shows how their democracy works and ours doesn't.

I mean, PAD have been sat in the equivalent of Downing Street, occupying the PM's office for months!

Not a shot fired (by govt forces).

They're too lazy to have a civil war anyway.

Especially the third one. The PPV would clear our national debt overnight. ;)

In fact why don't we just do a bit of celebrity cage fighting - but this time with World Leaders ?

I say we go for this guy to face McBroon.

How about Gordon Brown vs Paddy Ashdown, to the death.

Just heard Smith's words.

She says she did know about the investigation.

She says she didn't know that the shadow home secretary was about to be arrested.

So she failed to confirm or deny whether she knew Damain Green was being investigated.

Typical precise use of words to avoid giving an honest answer. We are governed by mendacity.

Politics is starting to get interesting after a decade of apathy... the people are starting to ask questions and the cracks of a desperate government are appearing... there is something really smelly about Nu-labour and the way they are hanging onto power.

house of cards is about to fall.

The understatement of the day

Not enough people understand what the 'New Labour Project' is really all about.......YET

Once their home has been repossessed and their job is gone and their meagre savings (if they have any) are rendered worthless, people might......just maybe.....wake the fekk up

She also looked decidedly shifty when asked if she had signed a warrant for him to be bugged.

Well, this article should put paid to the load of bo||ox spouted about the constitutional position of the Met's actions:

The Constitution

One of Britain's leading constitutional experts said yesterday that Scotland Yard had the right to raid the offices of Tory frontbencher Damian Green.

Vernon Bogdanor, professor of government at Oxford University where one of his undergraduates was David Cameron, dismissed claims from Labour backbenchers who said the Metropolitan Police had breached parliamentary privilege by raiding Green's office in the House of Commons.

Bogdanor said that parliamentary privilege extended only to what an MP said in the Commons and that the Yard had a responsibility to arrest individuals over allegations of illegality regardless of whether they were an MP or not.

'MPs are subject to criminal law as much as the rest of us,' he said. 'Their parliamentary privilege only extends to speeches in the chamber, not their offices.

'If an MP were accused of theft and keeping stolen goods in his office at the House of Commons, should he be exempt from a police investigation?'

Bogdanor guessed that Green may have been arrested because he had 'unwittingly' disclosed sensitive security information. 'If you and I were accused of that, then we also would be arrested', he added.

As pressure mounted on the Speaker, Michael Martin, for allowing police into the Palace of Westminster to search Green's Commons office, Bogdanor said: 'The Speaker may be asked to explain his reasons why he agreed for police to search the offices. If you have nothing to hide, then that is fine.'

Bogdanor added that the investigation into the Whitehall leak could not be interpreted as evidence that Britain had become a 'police state'.

'If it were a police state, then it would be like a communist state where MPs would be exempt from any laws, and here they are not,' he said.

For those on here tempted to feed the troll, remember that being 'agin the flow', facetious and taunting, is the only way someone who is nondescript can get attention. B)

These types of people have p*ssed off their nearest and dearest and come onto forums to play their silly games with unsuspecting victims.

You lot have gone very quiet. What's the matter? Realised what a load of bo||ox you were accusing the government and Scotland Yard of?

p

err no mate.

Arrests are only supposed to happen once you've got a case. Raids only if you can't find the bloke in normal times. He's a public figure for christs sake, he can be found very, very easily.

I don't know if you saw, but Harry Redknapp sued the police over raiding his house pointlessly in this manner and won. I expect this guy to win such a case as well, even if he is guilty.

Pat,

your either very naive or some kind of attention deficit WUM. Leaks like this have been going on since time and memorial. New Labour have gone too far and this will backfire and will make Labour unelectable for a generation.

Defend your freedom and say no to ID cards and Nanny state control madness.

Conrad,

There's no point. I've a bit of experience with this. Unswerving dedication to the Labour (or any political cause) is a sickness of the mind.

I don;t understand the bit about the police having the responsibilty to arrest over charges of illegality. Weren't charges of illegality made against Blair but no arrest, or searches, made?

There is no requirement to arrest in order to question a suspect (just caution), or search premises (get warrant). So why did they arrest?

Me too.

Zanu Labour its death by a thousand cuts - reminds me of the end of the Tories.

Watched Question Time t'other evening and the audience just laughed at Labours growth predictions the public have have lost all respect IMO.

Its over for Zanu Labour the tide is turning decisively.

New Labour deadcat bounce is now over its downhill all the way.

The sad thing is that they will be replaced by another bunch of cretins who will also stick their snouts as deep into the trough as this bunch of incompetents.

I saw that too. :lol: I bluddy cheered, 'specially as Basildon is a 'bellweather' constituency.

What scares the bejesus out of me :o is , that the more desperate Gorgon gets, the deeper into the mire he will drag us. Borrowing money time after time to try to buy out of the recession.

The most lunatic thing I 've heard recently is that Gorgo is TELLING banks that they MUST lend.

FFS, unsecured loaning is what started off this debacle.

At the point when the officer has reasonable grounds to suspect that an offence has been commited. At that point, the officer should advise the arrested person that he doesn't have to say anything, stop questioning him and wizz him off to the police station to be interviewed on tape under caution with a solicitor present if the arrested person chooses.

p-o-p

Agreed

There's a few of these NuLabour trolls posting on internet forums. There's a few of them on the Daily telegraph comments pages too, Andy G and Quietzapple being 2 of the most notable.

I'm sure thay are employed by the state to deliberately infect internet forums with their pro-socialist drivel

Is this a straw man I see before me?

Bogdanor is guessing, he doesn't know.

It applies to the right-wing as well.

My family in LA are neo-cons. As much as I found the ideals and ideas of the Labour bunch disturbing, I find the neo-con arguments positively terrifying.

Don't tell him, but really I'm a big follower of Injin, but have admittedly been too scared on here to say so.

Pat the Prat is a Labour Troll. I will keep saying this as long as this "Useful Idiot" keeps posting. He makes no attempt to have a reasoned sensible discussion. His sole aim is to disrupt this room.

DO NOT FEED THE TROLL!!!

Wikipedia...

An Internet troll, or simply troll in Internet slang, is someone who posts controversial, inflammatory, irrelevant or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum or chat room, with the intention of provoking other users into an emotional response or to generally disrupt normal on-topic discussion

The government employs people called keyboard monkeys specifically to go onto blogs and messageboards and write positive things about them. Not that I'm saying anyone here is an editorial intellegence keyboard moneky!

Although I'd be stunned if this had never happened on such a high profile forum as this.

Is that for real?
