My MP Damian Green was arrested yesterday
Party leader David Cameron has reacted angrily, saying it raises questions about Britain's democracy when an MP can be arrested "for making public information that the government didn't want to be made public". The Tories say nine counter-terrorism officers were involved in the arrest
Does any of this sound familiar?

I sent him an email:-
Damian
Sorry to hear of your predicament yesterday. Well done though for standing up to this anally retentive government and making them look stupid. Always presuming the police did not do it all off their own bat!

If you would like to enhance your reputation for fearless investigation further you may like to pursue Darling for the names of the people he spoke to in Iceland and ask for a transcript of the conversations.

Following the collapse of Heritable and Landsbanki, in early October 2008, confidence in the Icelandic economy was very low but both Kaupthing banks were still in a satisfactory position despite a large number of nervous withdrawals during this period.
On the morning of 8 October 2008 Alistair Darling made the following statement: "The Icelandic government believe it or not, have told me yesterday they have no intention of honouring their obligations here."
This statement crushed what was left of the faith in Iceland and started a run on Kaupthing Singer & Friedlander (UK) and Kaupthing Singer & Friedlander (IoM) Depositors began trying to withdraw what cash they could and the banks’ ability to service this demand evaporated. That same day, the UK authorities decided that Kaupthing Singer & Friedlander (UK) was no longer a viable bank and ordered the FSA to seize their assets and place the bank into administration. Those assets included the £550m belonging to Kaupthing Singer & Friedlander (IoM) . This left Kaupthing Singer & Friedlander (IoM) stranded and unable to function. It too then collapsed.

The Icelandic authorities have always denied that anyone ever made the statement as reported by the Chancellor. Recently the transcript of the conversation between Alistair Darling and the Icelandic authorities was released and nowhere in it did anyone make that statement. To this day the UK government cannot name the person who supposedly made that statement.

Keep up the good work

I have to say I send this with not a little temerity in the knowledge that its contents will, in all probability be scrutinised by either the minions of Whitehall or the police.

It might end up being good news. The 'opposition' appear to have 2 choices:

  1. Continue to Tow the government line as they have been doing for the last 12 years , keep out of prison and remain in 'opposition' for the next ......(not sure how many generatons I should say, maybe we should ask Micahell Foot, Neil Kinnock, John Smith and Margaret Beckett).
    or
  2. Expose the government, endure some temporary inconveninece and then be returned triumphantly as the hero that slayed them.

Knowing how much MPs need to have their nose in the trough I doubt if option 1 is going to satisfy most 'opposition' MPs (especially the 'Right Honorable' Mark Hoban MP ) . And if Ian (&) Duncan David William Micahel Cameron Howard Hague Smith (or whatever the present 'leader' of the 'oppostion's' name is) then all we have to wait for is the next one. I doubt if it will take long. A 60 day suspension might well be more than enough. We cannot be the only ones sick to death of those members of the 'oppostion' who have neither anything worthwhile to beleive in nor the the courage to stand up for it.

I thought that this extract from the Daily Mail article was interesting:

"Some Tories suspected that the action was an attempt to intimidate other civil servants tempted to leak documents, especially from the Treasury where ministers think there is a high-placed Tory mole. "

I wonder how we can contact this Tory mole and if he knows the contents of the sealed court orders etc etc ?

How wonderful it is, here on the Isle of Man that for all its faults and despite those whiskers we have no party politics.

What a waste of breath they are!

Back in the seventies I was in many Police states from the America's, Asia & Europe and never did they have the same powers or control as this government has brought in over the last 10 years, then look at the additional powers they are trying to bring in - these are quite astounding, all under the auspice to ensure public safety.

The UK was one of the last area's of a free & liberal society, now heading for greater restraints on the general populace than even the Stasi could have imagined, gone are the days for all of presume innocence before guilt, any car owner will vouch for this, CCTV can and does monitor virtually every move in our cities and major highways, eavesdropping on mobile phone and WiFi connections, Alistair Darling reiterated last week (see the video's of the Politics show) that biometric ID cards will come in. Even minor council officials can now access to our personal data and mount undercover investigations for the most sublime or ridiculous reason. Arrest without trial is in as well as closing financial institutions under sealed orders, was KSF UK actually in finical trouble and under the threshold or was it just a good cash cow for the government??

Now they arrest opposition MP's for highlighting and bringing to the public attention an issue over uncontrolled immigration and more specifically where some of those immigrants were / are employed.

How long before a few outspoken voices go missing???

Skintagain...those are just a few of the reasons I will never return to live in the UK again. When I do eventually recover my money it will be kept as far away from the UK's grasp as possible!
