Has Michael Crick selected the Tory Candidate for Battersea?

It would not surprise me at all to find out that the tory party's new "open selection" system for candidates has resulted in Labour activists deciding who the Tory candidate is (see Recess Monkey).

I would be more surprised if Michael Crick had managed to be one of the 300 voters as they should be able to recognise him.

Still if you allow the Labour Party to select the Tory Candidates that is one way of making the Tories the same as Labour.

Or you could go to Aberdeen where the Lib Dems and Tories are nearly as tight together as Birmingham's Tories and their Lib Dem puppies. See:

What a ridiculous comment from Bob Piper. John was writing about the open selection the Tories were holding, and Mr Piper shows a complete lack of knowledge and chooses to compare chalk with cheese.

Or you could go to Iraq where you can see how aligned the Labour government is with the US neo-cons.
Bob,if your application to join the Communist Party isn't in the royalmail it should be!

norfolk blogger... John was saying it "is one way of making the Tories the same as Labour" all I was doing was pointing out that there are other ways of being the same as the Tories... I don't think that is chalk and cheese at all, and if you can deduce 'a complete lack of knowledge' from that you are clearly barking.

manfarang... oh no, not the spectre of communism. Pathetic.

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. …

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…
