It's A Funny Old World



Let Me see if I get this straight.

Bunch of illegal immigrants are locked up at our expense at Yarlswood.

They are 'looked after' by Group 4

Group 4 lose control of the detention centre

Illegal immigrants burn the place down

Riot Police restore order

Group 4 sue Bedfordshire Police for Compensation under an obscure Victorian Law

Bunch of Judges say Police are liable

Police insurers have to pay compensation.

Police sent the Taxpayers the bill.

Spot the mug in this story, his name begins with the word T

He is paying Group4 £42 million

He is paying for the Police, the Judges, the illegal immigrants and Group 4.

Does he not get a say in this ?

I agree, it's utterly ludicrous. But if Group 4 are liable, why do the Police have to pay them compensation? Surely the Police should be billing Group 4? Am I missing something here?

I thought the quiz answer was Taxpayer til I saw the photo of Mrs Draper, so my guess is Titwanker.

Whats the prize?

The taxpayer is not considered a 'stakeholder'. Corporations, public sector departments, quangos, ministers, pressure groups are and get brought into discussions on a number of things.

We ain't.

My answer is: we're all well and truly fucked.

G4 are owned by Rothschilds.

Can we find the Marxist who coined the term 'stakeholder' and put one through his heart, please?

(wv 'manterdo' - quite!)

Dunno why more people don't sue the Police under this obscure Victorian law when they are the victim of crime because it is ALL the Polices' fault.

The elephant in the room is capitalism not socialism. New Labour is a pro privatization pro capitalist party. Of course they're going to ensure corporations are going to be able to maximize profits while tax payers foot the bill.

That's free market capitalism - don'cha just luv it?

That is NOT free market capitalism

Free market capitalism would have seen G4 pay the bill

The law's the law until someone changes it. The Police are held liable because if G4 people waded in with batons and shields and, ah, "subdued" the inmates, they'd be guilty of assault or worse; only the Police or military have that power.

So if the Police do it and damage results, it's on the taxpayers' tab.

I dare say the original drafters of the law didn't envisage a bunch of immigrants and a detention centre, but the law's the law. Another one to add to the pile for repeal.

Scunnert: "New Labour is a pro privatization pro capitalist party."

The elephant in the room is someone who can't tell the difference between fascism and capitalism.

Whereas for your education fascism == Socialism and why it was so amusing to watch an old communist like Jack Straw avoiding debate with an out and out fascist like Griffin the other night.

If real debate had taken place, they would have had too much in common for the comfort of even the bear bating audience not to have noticed.

Will no doubt get better under Dave Cameron PLC.

As DK may say - fucking hellski

Pounds to pennies (or Euros to cents) the Appeals Court judges were all past the age where they'd have been pensioned off in any other profession. I wouldn't trust most "senior" judges with scissors, but they effectively run the country.

OH "That is NOT free market capitalism

Free market capitalism would have seen G4 pay the bill"

Indeed, it's capitalism without the essense of capitalism - risk borne by the capitalist. It's New Labour's Third Way

The taxpayer pays.Here's another one:


CARBON TAX IS THEFT - PLAIN AND SIMPLE.

I fucking hate what this country has become.
A pussy whipped nation,a lawyers utopia, a place where the unable and unwilling can shit on the able and willing.
A place where the decisions of lunatics overide that of the sane.
Hell in other words.

Why put the fuckers in expensive centres anyway? Why weren't they just deported?

Winston Churchill(the last whiteman to be called Winston) said we will we will fight them on the beaches. I for one think we should as soon as they come ashore looking for the nearest benefit office.

Ron Broxted said...

No illegal immigrant should be held in a detention centre. It is both inhuman and degrading. They have as much right as me to live in the UK and enjoy the State Benefits that are available due to the rich Capitalist being taxed to the hilt. Afterall we are all citizens of planet earth and we are all pink inside. Two months ago I was in a relationship with a muscular Nigerian body builder who was also an illegal. He told me that all us white folks owed him because of slavery. Well as you can imagine I just pressed my face in the pillow and cried like a baby. He left me recently for another man whilst I was having remedial surgery for damage to my sphincter.

"...I would like to reassure local taxpayers that any successful claim against the Authority will be met by our insurance and not from the taxpayers’ pocket...

Quite, but like the BSE scare, the veritable business raping that was the asbestos scare and the inversion of justice that sees heroin addicts compensated for having enforced cold turkey/enforced rehab, having beaten up some granny and ended up in choky, this will jack up the costs of insurance premiums and the assurance agencies that keep the industry afloat.

R.B 18.18 kicked off the Daily Telegraph yet again?We in the U.A.F are pissing ourselves but hey a "multi-millionaire businessman" (who was Section 136-ed) will obviously tell folks where they are going wrong. Put on that Judy Garland record you sad fat old queen!
