Campaign against Labour False Allegations Continues

Following the launch of a campaign against the use of false allegations, campaigners have been protesting across the country from Liverpool, to Newcastle, from Shrewsbury to Brighton about the Labour Party's lack of concern about the use of false allegations by senior Labour Party officials.

John Hemming said, "The vast majority of people are opposed to the promotion of false allegations. However, it appears that the Labour Party nationally are not really bothered about the promotion of false allegations by senior Labour Party politicians as long as the target of those false allegations are opposition politicians."

"Although Tom Watson has stepped down as a Labour Candidate he remains for now the Deputy Leader of the Labour Party.   Jess Phillips is also the Chair of the Womens Labour Parliamentary Party.  A material number of Labour MPs have been involved in the promotion of false allegations of child rape against political opponents as well as these two senior National Labour Party Officials."

"For now the Labour Party have not even made an official comment about a complaint I have made to Labour about this.  However, unofficially they have said they are not going to do anything about it.   We are in an environment in which politics is getting more aggressive. The Labour Party play lip service to the idea that violence against politicians should not be promoted.  However, when Labour Politicians promote false allegations that result in death threats against their political opponents they avoid the issue.   Neither Jess Phillips nor Tom Watson have apologised for promoting Esther Baker's false allegations.  Other Labour Party members should force them to acknowledge the harm that they have done."

"Our campaign will continue to highlight this issue.  It is today moving to Brighton and will soon be in London. There will, of course, be protests in Birmingham and outside Tom Watson and Jess Phillips offices

Statement re False Allegations Campaign

Many people will know that my family and I have been subject to a campaign of false allegations by Esther Baker for the past 4 1/2 years. Yesterday there was a court judgment Baker v Hemming [2019] EWHC 2950 (QB) which formally confirmed that the allegations were false. Esther Baker, who had brought a libel claim against me, dropped her defence of Truth to my counter-claim and was taken by the judge as no longer trying to prove her allegations. Due to Baker's various breaches of court rules and orders, she has been barred from further repeating her allegations even in the court proceedings. Further claim of mine in libel against Baker are ongoing. There is a good summary in the Daily Mail here.

This demonstrates the challenge in fighting false allegations in today's Britain. A substantial campaign was built up to promote allegations which had no substance to them. Various Labour MPs and in pa…

A grassroots uprising against terrorism

Original Date 26th May 2017

One thing I used to do when I was the Member of Parliament for Yardley was to call together meetings of all of the religious organisations in Yardley as a Yardley multi-faith group.  In many ways it is the creation of informal links between people that makes communication easier even if there is no formal decision making power.

Obviously this is something I would intend to do again if the people of Yardley ask me to take on the responsibility of representing them in parliament.

It highlights the sort of thing that politicians can do which arises from a leadership role within communities rather than any constitutional position.

I have already written in an earlier blog post about the principles of resolving conflict.  It can be summarised as "murdering innocents is wrong".

A number of local mosques have issued statements following the atrocity in Manchester and I think it is worth quoting from parts of them.

One said that the mosque "Unequivoc…
