The best and the worst

The best people I met on my tour around the city centre were those who had come to help clear up. This is a photograph of the volunteer clean up crew.

Thanks to the efforts of the city council's staff who started work at 6am most of the mess had been cleared up by this point.

The aftermath of the worst is really looking at the attempts to steal a cashpoint machine.

All we had was an attempt to loot things. This does not warrant dressing up as anything more than this.

I am now updating my earlier post following meeting with The Chief Constable, other Police Officers and The Deputy Prime Minister.

The looting and vandalism (which is a concentration on looting and "free stuff") is done by ill disciplined youths who are out to get a small amount of money and get up to mischief. Nothing more should be read into it or the other events other than the event in Tottenham which was the catalyst. It is not as technically driven as people think although there is some organisation going on. It is not the serious gang members because the amounts of money involved are generally not worth the risk of being caught and punished.

I support the police strategy of maximising arrests and prosecutions.

Although we do need to find jobs for people generally (not only for young people) that is not related to these acts of theiving. The government needs to back parents and schools in creating a disciplined environment and ensure that the criminals involved are caught and punished.

...funny thing, when stuff like this happens in far eastern countries it's calledd a revolution, but over here it's a 'riot' done by 'criminals'....why is that? Bit racist isn't it?

If it weren't for the REAL criminals over here having all the power there wdn't be a problem....i.e. until immunity from prosecution for certain segments of so called 'society' is removed...

it's not even possible to kill a non physical entity....
"Green Credit for Green Purposes" was our proposal to the Treasury Select Committee in 2007 to create jobs - at the time in response to the Stern review on climate change. See http://bit.ly/3U6jCc

The principle is the same for ANY work programme, no matter which age group: the government should print its own money instead of borrowing or using taxes for its income stream.

If the ratio between Cash by governments and Credit by banks was back to where it was after WWII (nearly 50/50), the gap between rich and poor would not continue to widen. Now Cash is a mere 3% in the estimated supply of Credit as "money".

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…

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

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…
