After arduously attempting to read through the Hansard report of this past week’s proposed marriage-wrecking legislation and its various clauses, I noticed the Speaker’s first words at the very start of the week’s business, after prayers, were as follows,
Mr Speaker [John Bercow]: I wish to report to the House that the rooms of a Member were searched yesterday pursuant to a warrant issued by the circuit judge in Preston Crown court on 16 May. The warrant related to the investigation of a serious arrestable offence.
I should remind Members, as did my predecessor in 2008, that the precincts of Parliament are not a haven from the law. In accordance with the protocol issued by my predecessor on 8 December 2008 on the execution of search warrants within the precincts of the House of Commons, I considered the warrant personally and was advised by Officers of the House that there were no lawful grounds on which it would be proper to refuse its execution. In addition, as provided for in paragraph 6 of the protocol, I consulted the Attorney-General and the Solicitor-General, who concurred in this advice. I am very grateful to them. The Clerk of the House was kept fully informed throughout, and also concurred.
The Serjeant at Arms and Speaker’s Counsel were present when the search was conducted. Undertakings have been given by the police officers as to the handling of any parliamentary material until such time as any issue of privilege is resolved. The investigation is continuing and it would not be right to comment further. I will not take questions on my statement.
Of course, it was not relating to the astounding and widespread crimes of treason and warmongering on behalf of transnational corporations by many Members. Those days are yet to come. No, it was the office of former Deputy Speaker, Nigel Evans (who very recently unfriended me on Facebook for my views on homosexuality and I hadn’t even realised he had leanings in that direction) and who is being investigated over claims of sexually assaulting two men, which he vigorously denies.
Some politicians have very unfortunate incidents shortly after unfriending or blocking me on the social media. It’s as if I place a curse on them for it, but I don’t. Not intentionally, anyway. Like Labour’s Eric Joyce, with whom I had a strangely friendly rapport on Twitter then I say something “wrong” and that’s it. Over. Thankfully, he was too far away to headbutt me. Perhaps his computer monitor bore the brunt.
“Stitch that, Cowan.”
“Oh %$*&#, not again. Best decision I ever made was to buy these in bulk.”
But shortly after our Twitter “friendship” ended, he spent a night in the cells after refusing to give police a breath test sample after crashing his Rover.
Guards [at Grangemouth refinery, where he had the collision] smelt alcohol on his breath and after concluding that Mr Joyce was either confused or drunk, asked for police assistance.
MPs are not above the law: Eyewitness describes Eric Joyce arrest in House of Commons after he headbutted another MP and tried to fight off police a few months ago.
And I see that the poor tortured soul has just been arrested yet again this week, at Edinburgh Airport this time, for breach of the peace, after leaving his mobile phone on the plane and nobody being prepared to retrieve it for him. I would be a bit peeved myself, but unlikely to need to be pinned down by police after turning into the Incredible Sulk.
Now, to work together to have arrests made for the real offences: the outrageous treason and many other crimes far more grievous than going mental at an airport.
Many politicians and others have been conspiring for decades to bring this country down and as the evidence is there to prove it and we have various documents of old, which still hold sway, which can be used to our advantage, the Blairs and Camerons and a host of “useful idiots” can finally face justice for their heinous crimes against the British people – and many other people.
