I see the contemptuous, disrespectful SNP scum tried to displace Big Den Skinner from his seat. Thankfully the Bozer Bruiser prevailed.

QuoteThe huge new intake of Scottish National Party MPs at Westminster had vowed to grab Mr Skinner's trademark spot on the front corner of the Commons benches.

They arrived early for the first day of the new Parliament and took it in turns to hold on to his usual spot on the front corner of the Commons benches.

But Mr Skinner grabbed it after MPs stood up for a routine search of the chamber by sniffer dogs.

He said: "I only had half a cheek on, but I was there before them and I will be there when they are gone."

What's with the wee, Sims.....that you talking about yer boaby size again ::)

You see you & me basically agree on the salient facts, and again for the record, I don't dispute that other parties are involved in a cover up. But remember Mrs Thatcher was PM, I don't know what John Major, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown & David Cameron have done, because no official documents have been released into the mainstream and without facts, it's all simply unverified allegations.

I know from official documents that she tried a number of times to knight Jimmy Saville DESPITE being briefed of his activities, therefore let's condemn that & her behaviour. Let's then look at the repercussions of this decision,because all during this time, he attended her numerous private Xmas parties at Chequers, while he was a serial abuser of children.

Why would she do that, what was the most powerful person in the country thinking about by continuing to give this guy access to the highest in the land? So, no I'm afraid I cannot let that go. I cannot indulge in whataboutery. And I sincerely hope you're correct that a huge can of worms will break in the next few years, because democracy in this country needs it and if that means that her reputation is ripped apart, then that's fine by me,because as you've said repeatedly, she's dead & won't be coming back!!

From today's Guardian:

1,400 suspects in politician and celebrity child sex abuse inquiry
Officer leading Operation Hydrant inquiry says out of 1,433 alleged offenders 76 were politicians, 43 were from music industry and 135 were from TV, film or radio

More than 1,400 suspects have been investigated by police looking into child sex abuse allegations against VIPs including politicians, celebrities and institutions.

A national police group, known as Operation Hydrant, released the figures at a briefing on its inquiry into possible links between child sex abuse investigations involving public figures currently being run by different forces across the country.

Chief Constable Simon Bailey, chair of the group, told the briefing that out of 1,433 alleged offenders identified nationwide, 76 were politicians, 43 were from the music industry, seven were from sport and 135 were from the TV, film or radio industries. Some 216 are now dead.

"The referrals are increasing on an almost daily basis. The numbers I refer to today are a snapshot in time," Bailey said.

Operation Hydrant, created by the the National Police Chiefs' Council (NPCC), the body that superseded the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo), is not leading any particular investigations itself but gathering intelligence on a number of ongoing inquiries.

Among investigations into historical sex crimes are Operation Pallial, which is looking at claims of abuse in care homes in north Wales and an inquiry into Knowl View school in Rochdale, where the late MP Sir Cyril Smith is said to have abused boys.

Bailey told the briefing that among the total number of suspects, 666 were alleged to have offended within institutions.

Detectives have identified 154 schools, 75 children's homes and 40 religious establishments among the institutions.

In addition, reports of non-historic child abuse have more than doubled in three years.

It isn't actually the job of government to make everyone's wages equal, and in fact you'll find that those governments which attempt it generally employ the hatchet, axe and saw method, to no-one's benefit except the envious and resentful.

Who said it was?
When the truth offends we lie and lie until we can longer remember it is even there. But it is still there. Every lie we tell incurs a debt to the truth. Sooner or later, that debt is repaid

What do you think "Dave's" job is, Dom?

I think the insinuation is that he has done a poor job at creating a fair society where we all equally share the spoils of prosperity or indeed suffer equally the hardships of lean times. It is worth remembering then that one of the most rapid periods of wealth divergence between rich and poor happened during the 13 years in which Labour held the office of Her Majesty's government - no rosette for Blair (or Brown) here either.

Yes. I don't really see that job as the duty, or even the right, of a government.

I quite agree. There's a good case for saying that those that have tried hardest to carry out that role have been the some of the worst governments of all.
