NRF goes through "on the nod"

Having led their troops up to the top of the hill to oppose our analysis of the Neighbourhood Renewal Funds Labour today recognised that we were right. The attempted an oblique assault on our proposals to give each ward a basic £50,000. When I pointed out that included would hit Oscott even harder they pulled back.

Labour MPs are still trying to make something of the fact that we have put Performance Reward Grant into Social Care and Housing. The fact is that the City Council's biggest problem areas are Social Care and Housing. We have put most of the spare resources into Social Care and put £1.6Million into Housing to deal with the Labour Government's inane requirement for yet another survey of tenants views on stock options.

We know tenants want to stay with the City Council. We have worked out the finance for the fourth option, but the government still require us to waste money on yet another stock options exercise.

In the mean time there are rumours Labour are distancing themselves from the six Labour Councillors the elections of whom will be subject to election petitions on 21st Feb and 7th March. In theory Steel and Shamash who have been their solicitors so far (the Labour Party's solicitors) should be their representatives. It remains to be seen if they will stay "on the case".

The fact that thousands of ballot papers have been fraudulently completed will be proven and will raise questions about the way in which the Labour Government have undermined democracy in the UK. (both directly and through historical corporatism)

Statement re false allegations from Esther Baker

Statement by John Hemming
I am pleased that the Police have now made it clear that there has been a concerted effort to promote false criminal allegations against me and that the allegations had no substance whatsoever.
I would like to thank Emily Cox, my children, Ayaz Iqbal (my Solicitor), my local lib dem team and many others who supported me through this dreadful experience. There are many worse things that happen to people, but this was a really bad experience.
It is bad enough to have false allegations made about yourself to the police, but to have a concerted campaign involving your political opponents and many others in public creates an environment in which it is reasonable to be concerned about ill founded vigilante attacks on your family and yourself. Luckily there was a more substantial lobby to the contrary as well, which included many people who were themselves real survivors of abuse, which has helped.
I am normally someone who helps other people fight injustice. …

R v SUSSEX JUSTICES ex p McCARTHY [1924] 1 KB 256

Editor’s comments in bold.

Here, the magistrates’ clerk retired with the bench when they were considering a charge of dangerous driving. The clerk belonged to a firm of solicitors acting in civil proceedings for the other party to the accident. It was entirely irrelevant that there had been no evidence of actual influence brought to bear on the magistrates, and the conviction was duly quashed.

It is clear that the deputy clerk was a member of the firm of solicitors engaged in the conduct of proceedings for damages against the applicant in respect of the same collision as that which gave rise to the charge that the justices were considering. It is said, and, no doubt, truly, that when that gentleman retired in the usual way with the justices, taking with him the…

Statement re Police investigation into Harassment and Perverting the Course of Justice.

It was recently reported that the police were not investigating the allegations of Perverting the Course of Justice that I had made. This came as a surprise to me as I had been told for some time that my allegations were to be considered once the VRR had been rejected. I have now had a very constructive meeting with Staffordshire police on Friday 29th June 2018 and the misunderstandings have been resolved. At that meeting the evidence relating to the perversion of the course of justice and the harassment campaign against my family were discussed. The police have decided to investigate both the perversion of the course of justice and also the harassment campaign. I would like to thank them for changing their decision and I accept their apology for the way in which they did that. I am also in possession of written confirmation a police force would be investigating allegations that a vulnerable witness has been harassed for trying to expose the campaign against me. I hope that the aut…
