Gavin Williamson Shouldn’t Resign, He Must be SACKED. #AndImATory

with 5 comments

The disgusting abuse of Jeremy Corbyn by the immature young man who has been give the grave responsibility of running Britain’s defence is beyond redemption.

I am a Tory. I’m no longer a member of the Conservative Party and after 40 years of voting for it I shall never do so again until it turns away from its authoritarian and illiberal path. But I am a true Tory instead of the fake that inhabits 10, Downing Street and her sycophants and hangers on.

Similar smears about Corbyn’s efforts in talking to the IRA and Hamas by other Conservative politicians are also beneath contempt. If our senior politicians aren’t doing all they can to reach out to such organisations in peaceful dialogue then they are irresponsible.  However, that the Defence Secretary demeans himself and his office with such puerile conduct requires firm action. It is horrifying that this idiot has our armed forces under his control.  It would be like giving his allies in defaming Corbyn: Murdoch, Dacre and the Barclay Brothers, access to our weaponry.

Williamson is totally unsuitable for his role and he was well before these events.  He should be a junior assistant at some obscure party branch where he can make his childish mistakes and clumsy errors without causing real harm.  The combination of youthful arrogance, incompetence, poor judgement and a flappy mouth should now destroy his political career for good.  Perhaps his chums in the Fleet Street Mafia can find something for him to do publishing more poison and abuse?

Before that he should be dragged through the courts and bankrupted. There is no defence of fair comment or honest opinion for his behaviour, not even against the leader of a political party. Indeed, Williamson’s behaviour is an argument for bringing such serious slander back into the criminal courts.

Mark Reckless Should Sue Grant Shapps For Defamation.

The Odious Slanderer, Grant Shapps

Odious Slanderer And Wide Boy, Grant Shapps

The odious wide boy Grant Shapps, chair of the Tory party, has launched an attack on Mark Reckless which goes way beyond politics, it is defamation. Reckless should sue the slimy oik for every penny he has got.

I know a little about defamation from bitter, personal experience.  Shapps is worth suing, he’s wealthy and when you are slandered, maliciously and deliberately and the person responsible can pay, he deserves to.

Let’s be clear, Shapps is a first rate scumbag.  He made his fortune by selling despicable and fraudulent get rich quick schemes under a succession of false identities.  That he is now chairman of the Tory party says everything about how far that once noble institution has fallen.

My experience also tells me that Reckless will find a legal team willing to work on a conditional fee agreement.  There is no doubt that Shapps’ disgraceful words are deliberately calculated to cause serious damage to Reckless and it seems to me that his repeated accusations of lying are factually inaccurate or unsupportable opinion, spoken out of malice. This ticks all the boxes as required under the Civil Procedure Rules.

Resorting to law in politics is something that must only be done in the most serious and extreme of circumstances, when those engaged in defamation have breached every limit, every red line and every tenet of civilised behaviour.  That is the basis on which I decided to launch legal action against my abusers back at the beginning of 2013 and I urge Mark Reckless to take similar action now.

He, as I did, has a wider responsibility.  Shapps’ behaviour is beneath contempt and beyond redemption.  It is so serious that a stand must be made.  People who sink so low must be stopped in the interests of wider society – just as those who attacked me.

Shapps should also reflect on this – had he made his remarks after the writ for the Rochester and Strood by-election had been moved, he should now be facing criminal charges under section 106 of the Representation of the People Act 1983.  Regrettably the maximum penalty is a fine of £5,000 but Shapps political career would then be finished.  For that, the whole country would be grateful, whatever their political views.  People who behave in the way that Shapps has, like those who defamed me, deserve everything they get.  They should be made outcasts from civilised society and debate.

Gordon And The Daily Mail Stand No Chance Against Joanna

Our Avenger

The appalling story of the way that this debased, corrupt and immoral government has treated the Gurkhas continues.

Another Snide, Underhand Labour Minister

A press conference was called today to refute the smears and misinformation promoted by the Home Office and the MOD.  With extraordinary timing, just minutes before the conference was due to start, three things happen:

  • Kevan Jones, Defence Minister, issues an apology
  • The Legal Services Commission publishes its report clearing the Gurkhas’ solicitors of misconduct
  • Gordon Brown frantically tries to contact Ms Lumley

Some worthless journalist at The Daily Mail is also responsible for fuelling this slander against the Gurkha heroes and their heroine, Joanna.  Anyone who has ever read any of the lies and and sensationalist nonsense published in this “newspaper” knows just how much credence to give it.

There is no further investigation needed because the stench, the foul odour, the stink coming from these events is all too familiar.  It is Gordon and his cronies at it again with their unmistakeable, unbelievable and despicable perversion of the truth.  Just how low down in the dirt can you get?
