Its a bit like nessie really

Danny Alexander who is MP for Inverness, Nairn, Something and Other (Badenoch and Strathspey for those who wish to know) also is MP for Loch Ness and hence the Loch Ness Monster (Nessie) is one of his constituents.

This cat:

is a bit like Nessie. Patches I have only managed to get photos of in a very blurred manner. However, in guarding bottles of booze Patches has stayed still.

It remains that there are two cats to go. They are rarer specimens. The one that the Labour Party have claimed is dead is in fact live and growling (it sort of growls in the middle of the night) and I may get another photograph of it.

In the mean time we have the Birmingham version of Monopoly in the House of Commons Library.

I may be wrong, but I don't believe that either Old Queen St or PMOS have claimed that any of your cats are dead, Bob and I have merely asked that you register the existence of each individual cat. Until that point, each cat may or may not exist (Schroedinger would be proud).

Fortunately, I'm not responsible for Labour press briefing or national policy (which many would regard as a good thing). However, that latest picture clearly shows a cat belonging to the undead - those are scary eyes.

Speaking of the undead, why do your colleagues continue to spout the untruth that there are no Tory MPs in the major cities outside London? Another one of the LD new boys was on R4 this morning and repeated the statement (not challenged by Michael Gove, sadly). Three answers come to mind. Firstly, their political geographical knowledge is lacking, secondly, they do not regard Birmingham as a major city or do have they just read one Liberal Democrat bar chart too many and have started to believe their own propaganda?

My daughter has promised to email me a photo she has of Lighting being chased out of the house by Waif (you already have a pic of Waif).

The Sutton Coldfield question remains the Sutton Coldfield question.

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. …

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…

I have only just found this one which I think is accurately reported below (but if it is not please give me an accurate report).

KING’S BENCH DIVISION

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

November 9 1923

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.

LORD HEWART CJ:
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…
