Let the arrests begin

UPDATE: That Jockanese blob of ratspunk, Michael Martin MP (Lab) did the dirty deed

"Do whatever it takes, Mr Creedy"
ANOTHER UPDATE: The Cabinet are meeting today at the Royal Armoury in Leeds. They may well need to arm themselves soon.

I'll Vote for Gordo if he gives me a free farm.

Gordon Brown,  28 November 2008 at 09:40  

Is it cos I is black?

I thought the Daily Mash only did news parodies. \0_o/

"THE Prime Minister last night began the elimination of his enemies as he pledged to cleanse Britain of the virus of dissent."

Cholera pandemic in Zimbabwe this week according to Channel4 news.
When the foreigners who own our water companies take the money and run that'll be us too.

The Mugabe sure knows a trick or two- and Brown is learning them all.

Cholera epidemic within 5 years. Hospitals unable to cope. Food riots, etc etc.
Population reduced according to plan


Rodney Nosnail,  28 November 2008 at 10:23  

Dave, Cholera is such a "foreign" illness and allowing the populace to die from disease is such a "foreign" way of working. Surely they wouldn't take that route, and even if they did, surely it would be with a more "English" illness such as MRSA, C. Difficile and the like. No, it's absolutely inconceivable. Oh, hold on a minute .....

Arrest Brown, Smith and the other Junta members. Over the last eleven years they have committed murder. They have murdered the civil liberties and freedoms this country has traditionally enjoyed.

ID Cards. A Database State. 1 CCTV Camera per 15 Citizens. Communications Monitoring. Terror laws to catch those who overfill their bins.

And now - nine Anti-Terror Political Police 'officers' to arrest an Opposition Minister for making public information which deserved to be in the public domain. For doing something that this regime do daily and with great effect (leaks to Peston affecting the stock market, and the recent leaks of the PBR for example).

The Brown Regime is shabby, dishonest and frankly abhorrent, and I believe they will use any method - up to and including the imposition of the Civil Contingencies Act - to hold onto the power and control that is all they covet.

I honestly believe that with this first political arrest, we can safely say that British Freedom (1215-2008) has now died.

This is the beginning of the end for everyone's least favourite consumer of his own snot. As for Martin he should never have been made Speaker in the first place. Another Liebour stooge with a chip on his shoulder to rival Prescott. A long miserable nuclear winter on all their houses.

Gordon 28 November 2008 at 12:23  

Martin is still likely to resign before the election so that Labour can put another one of their own in the chair (although, apparantly there's a convention that it should swap between the two main parties and you know how this goverment reacted in horror when Osborne broke with convention).

Two alternatives:

1) Ministers knew - we live in an authoritarian state,

2) Ministers didn't know - we live in a police state.

Written to my (Labour) MP in outrage - the least I could do, I figure.

Slightly OT, but just wanted to say *GAH* about Kerry McCarthy's blog in general, and the defensive lefty comments on the Question Time thread in particular.

OH, Penguin, all other right-thinking correspondents: why do you bother? It's exasperating just reading the bilge Kerry and that imbecile Northern Lights puke up in response to your posts. Making a sensible point and only getting a mockery of a reply must be utterly infuriating.

There really is no reasoning with idiots.

DaveA 28 November 2008 at 14:41  

IMHO the lightweight answers we get from Kerry and co suggest they do not have too many arguments to fight back with. I started on her a couple of months ago on the smoking ban and my impression is that in the face of such hostility she must get the message. How influential in Parliament and the Labour Party is the X factor.

Gareth,  28 November 2008 at 16:00  

Green replaced Basher Davis didn't he? Can't imagine the Met would have dared target him in the same manner.

If anything lasting comes from this it must at least be the realisation that the powers of arrest have become the first option rather than the last resort. Discretion has been regulated out of Policing.

Gareth,  28 November 2008 at 16:25  

Whoops. Done a bit of research and found Green didn't replace Davis.

bernard 28 November 2008 at 20:00  

Gordon 'boom&bust' Brown knew all about the arrest.
He said: "Go in with all your guns booming, and bust both his legs".
