Now #SueGray’s report on #DowningStreetParties is delayed as #MetPolice step in

Cressida Dick: at long last she is announcing an investigation into the alleged Downing Street parties by the Metropolitan Police.

The findings of a Cabinet Office investigation into alleged parties at 10 Downing Street will apparently be withheld after Cressida Dick announced that the Metropolitan Police will investigate potential criminal offences.

Here she is, making her announcement:

I don’t know what you think, but it looks to This Writer like she was forced into it!

Police have steadfastly refused to pay any attention to the alleged criminality in Downing Street from at least May 15, 2020 onwards, with ministers, advisors and staff allegedly breaking lockdown rules on a habitual basis while the public were arrested and fined more than £1,000 for doing the same.

Not only that, of course, but those of us who followed the rules that Boris Johnson read out to us in March 2020 were separated from our family members and loved ones who caught Covid-19 and sadly died of the disease, and from those who died of other causes.

We feel that Boris Johnson treated us with contempt while he did whatever he wanted.

Ms Dick’s announcement adds another layer of distrust with the understanding that the Cabinet Office inquiry into the parties, by Johnson’s employee Sue Gray (and therefore not an independent investigation), will delay its report until the police finish their work.

It’s a delaying tactic, isn’t it?

But the latest revelation – that a party (no matter how brief) was held for Boris Johnson’s birthday, and he attended it – really should hammer the last nail into the coffin of his political career.

He has persistently insisted that no parties took place, that he wasn’t informed about them, that he didn’t attend them, and even that he didn’t realise what they were when he did attend them. The evolution of his story has shown that he has lied to Parliament – and that is an offence for which he must resign.

He should use any extra time he’s been given to put his affairs in order.

Video of #KillTheBill activists on #PritiPatel chat is funny – but also shows she can’t answer real questions

Here’s an insight into the way your Tory overlords behave.

Priti Patel went on a video chat with what she thought was a group of Conservative supporters. You can see it on Skwawkbox. No doubt she was expecting a few carefully-vetted questions for which she could provide some carefully-rehearsed answers.

What she got was a group of “Kill the Bill” protesters, angry at her Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill that is intended to criminalise public protest in the United Kingdom. I don’t condone their behaviour because, to be honest, they went rampant on the text chat in a way that wasn’t likely to do their cause any good.

What the incident demonstrates, though, is the polarity of thought in the upper echelons of the Conservative Party.

The chat’s host apologised for the incident, stating, “I’ve no idea how these leftists got in on the call.”

“Leftists”? How do they know?

The simple fact is that Patel’s Bill will outlaw protest by people of any political denomination: left, right, up, down, centre (wherever that is) – they’ll all go to jail for raising a finger, if she has her way.

But people with a legitimate right to question her policy were put down as “leftists” by the chat host.

One may conclude that this person is as much a fascist as Patel herself.

Perhaps everybody taking part (other than the protesters) is of the same persuasion.

The question we, as ordinary citizens of the United Kingdom, have to ask is:

Do we want these creepy ghouls to have authority over us?

Is this the reason #DowningStreet #police aren’t being grilled about all those parties?

Take a look at this image:

For those who can’t see well or read from images, the text states: “This is Bas Javid. He’s the brother of Sajid Javid the Health Minister. He’s also the Assistant Commissioner for Professional Standards. In case you’re wondering why the police aren’t investigating the conduct of police officers at Number 10.”

It is indeed an image of Sajid Javid’s brother Basit, who is indeed an Assistant Commissioner at the Metropolitan Police.

He was promoted to the role while Sajid Javid was Home Secretary. Feel free to come to your own opinion about whether the appointment was entirely based on his own merits.

I would also encourage you to draw your own conclusion as to whether this close relative of a member of Boris Johnson’s Cabinet may have been influenced to veto any investigation into the conduct of Metropolitan Police officers guarding Downing Street at the times of the 13 parties alleged to have taken place there between May 2020 and April 2021.

Strangely, I have been able to find no information on the Metropolitan Police website (so far) to indicate that Professional Standards is indeed Basit Javid’s responsibility. Odd, that. Other organisations make the responsibilities of their senior staff abundantly clear.

(UPDATE: Many thanks to Cathy – @NarcAware – on Twitter for providing this –

– which seems to clear up the matter.)

Of course we know already that Met Commissioner Cressida Dick was at Balliol College, Oxford, around the same time as Boris johnson.

There really does seem to be an interconnected network of people in the highest positions of power in the UK. Whether it really has led to the kind of corruption described in the image at the top of this article or not, the impression it gives could hardly be worse.

#MetPolice confirm role as #ToryPoodles by refusing to investigate #DowningStreetParty

Bent copper? Cressida Dick only has her job as long as Parliament approves of her, it seems. Her recent decisions certainly suggest she is more interested in keeping her job than doing it.

The Metropolitan Police will not, absolutely won’t, no, nay, not now, not soon, investigate any party in 10 Downing Street last December while London was in Tier 3 lockdown because of an “absence of evidence”.

Absolutely.

Because people actually talking on a video clip about the party that took place in 10 Downing Street on December 18 last year couldn’t possibly be evidence.

Because they have no witnesses, certainly not all the people talking on the video clip and all the people on the list of those who signed in and out of 10 Downing Street on that evening – a Friday evening in late December, let’s remember, in front of police officers who must have been able to tell if there was alcohol on their breath.

Because the police never investigate crimes that took place a year ago – except for all those crimes they investigated that took place more than a year previously, according to former Director of Public Prosecutions Keir Starmer.

And after all, they haven’t prosecuted anybody else – who isn’t involved in the government – for having parties that weren’t allowed last year, apart from all those families they’ve prosecuted and fined for having parties that weren’t allowed last year.

In the words of Starmer, this is bullshit.

It seems clear that the police are avoiding any action because they don’t want to prosecute people in the government; once again I am proved right in saying that Boris Johnson and his cronies really are above the law.

I hope that it creates huge problems for the police in the future. Obviously nobody who, in the future, talks about a crime can be considered to have provided evidence that it took place – especially if such conversation is recorded on video or by another recording device. That’ll make it quite hard for police to use recordings from interviews with suspects.

Oh, and it will be hard to use documentary evidence after that list of 10 Downing Street party attendees disappeared; if police lose information so easily, it will be hard to believe in any documents they manage to produce.

All of the above suggests that James O’Brien was right when he tweeted that Met Commissioner Cressida Dick is more interested in keeping her job than in doing it.

Did #BorisJohnson’s #DowningStreetParty investigator actually attend it? What about the #police?

No wonder Boris Johnson (right) looks happy: he’s getting Cabinet Secretary Simon Case (left) to investigate the rave-up hosted at his Downing Street residence in 2020. No chance of an honest report there, then!

The big development in the Downing Street Christmas party scandal is that Boris Johnson has tried to kick it into the long grass by announcing an investigation.

These invariably take weeks – time in which Johnson will no doubt hope that the public will forget all about it and he can get back to his day job, stealing our cash and our human rights and selling off our national assets to whoever will give him (him, not the government) the best deal.

And they also invariably whitewash Johnson – to a greater or lesser degree, depending on which of his stooges he hires to lead the inquiry.

The Downing Street party probe is apparently being led by Cabinet Secretary Simon Case – and this presents a corruption dilemma of its own because it is widely believed that he was among those who attended it.

The prime minister’s office has refused to confirm or deny the allegation – which indicates that it is true.

The Daily Mirror‘s Kevin Maguire has joked about it: “If Case went, he can’t head an inquiry although he could supply a guest list.”

Good point – and one that Met Police Commissioner Cressida Dick should bear in mind if she can’t find her own copy.

This Site has already pointed out that the Met provides police officers to guard Downing Street at all times and everybody who attends that location must be signed in and out. Therefore the record for December 18, 2020 will show who was at the party.

Dick is said to be considering whether to investigate the party and it is more appropriate for the police to do so than for anybody connected with Boris Johnson in even the remotest way.

Remember: the police are this week prosecuting several people for offences of breaking Tier 3 restrictions in London on the day of the party, including a family in Ilford who allegedly held a party of their own.

If the police really do uphold the law “without fear or favour”, then they must investigate the Downing Street party too. It was a crime – as the other prosecutions show. And crimes are investigated exclusively by the police.

Dick already has a few names on the list of those she should be grilling, starting with those of Allegra Stratton and everybody else on the video clip of a mock press conference, laughing and joking about a rave-up that they enjoyed while everybody else was being driven into misery by their government’s rules.

It seems clear that she should add Mr Case to that list.

And no – Johnson’s attempt to mark his own homework (as these self-investigations are known) is not an excuse to say there’s no need for a criminal investigation.

#Police will be asked to investigate Parliamentary #drug use. We know what they’ll say!

Hoyle: is this how he’ll react when the Metropolitan Police refuse to investigate cocaine use in Parliament, on grounds that they don’t investigate crimes retrospectively?

The Commons Speaker, Sir Lindsay Hoyle, has announced that he will ask the Metropolitan Police to investigate cocaine use in Parliament:

Apparently all but one of 12 lavatory areas in Parliament that were tested showed traces of cocaine.

That’s all very well, but we know what the answer will be, after Cressida Dick’s response to complaints about the Downing Street Christmas party of December 18, 2020:

It turns out that Met Commissioner Cressida Dick herself previously said the Met had many retrospective investigations on the go:

But that was a while ago. Clearly the new less-than-one-year limitation on investigating crime retrospectively came in after 2017.

Funny that none of us ever heard of it, though…

Still, we know the answer Hoyle will hear – right?

So the Met Police won’t be investigating druggie MPs.

If it does launch a probe, then the failure to investigate the Downing Street party will be a serious breach of procedure. But we know that already, too – right?

#BorisJohnson’s #Covid19 #Christmas booze-up: why won’t #CressidaDick investigate?

His most infamous comment: let’s not forget that Johnson is believed to have said “Let the bodies pile high in their thousands” months before the alleged Christmas party at Downing Street on December 18, 2020. They did: on the day of the party alone, 489 people died with Covid-19.

She doesn’t have to – she already has the names of everybody who attended and may start prosecutions whenever she wants. She just doesn’t want to.

But I’m getting ahead of myself.

We’re all aware of the situation, I hope: it emerged a few days ago that Boris Johnson hosted a huge Christmas Party at 10 Downing Street, with attendees packed together “cheek by jowl”, while the rest of London was on Tier 3 lockdown and on a day when 489 people died from Covid-19.

There is a question over why it took so long for this to come out; were political correspondents like the BBC’s Laura Kuennsberg and ITV’s Robert Peston invited? If so, did they go? If so, is that the reason they didn’t report the breach of Covid regulations – that they were as guilty as everybody else? If so (again), then they should not be in the jobs they have if they’re so quick to lay themselves open to compromising situations so easily.

Downing Street has said that all the rules in force at the time were observed, but this cannot be true; if there was any kind of party involving many people, then the rules were broken.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick – now there’s a woman who has compromised herself thoroughly for the Tory government! – initially refused to investigate the alleged incident, saying she had not received a complaint about it.

Judging from the volume of entries in This Writer’s Twitter feed, that situation has now been rectified. Here’s just one example:

So, it seems, she has changed her tune and is now saying that the police don’t investigate crimes retrospectively.

Sorry, what?

Correct me if I’m wrong, but police can only ever investigate crimes retrospectively! They have to have been committed before any detection work can happen at all. We don’t have any Minority Report-style ‘pre-crime’ units (and that’s just as well because the film suggested that it wouldn’t work if we did)!

So it’s a nonsense excuse.

Furthermore, it has been pointed out that Downing Street is under police guard 24 hours a day, seven days a week, all year round. Everybody entering has to be signed in; everybody leaving has to be signed out.

So the police already have a list of everybody who attended the alleged party on December 18, 2020 – or should have.

Perhaps they destroyed it. That would be embarrassing because there are possible situations in which such lists may be required in the name of national security.

Perhaps Ms Dick’s name is on it. That would also be embarrassing.

In any event, officers on duty would have seen the people going in, and they must have seen the state of them by the time those people left. If all else fails, those officers could be interviewed.

What has become abundantly clear, though, is that nobody with the ability to do it has even the slightest interest in investigating the allegation that a boozy party happened in Downing Street during lockdown, meaning the prime minister of the UK broke his own rules.

That fact alone makes Johnson look as guilty as a puppy sitting next to a pile of poo.

It also indicates that we have people in positions of authority whose only interest is in abusing those positions for their own personal gratification – and in protecting each other from the consequences if those abuses are discovered.

It’s bitterly offensive to all the families whose loved ones died alone that day because Johnson’s rules for the rest of us required family members to be distanced from their relatives who had contracted the virus.

It would be foolish of us to believe that Boris Johnson, Cressida Dick, or anybody who attended that alleged party, cares about their loss in any way at all.

Priti Patel has stuffed her anti-protest Bill with even MORE dictatorial attacks on liberty

Priti Patel: beneath that smug smile lurks nothing but pure evil. And nearly 14 million people wholeheartedly voted for her to strip them of their human rights and liberties.

Who knew that Boris Johnson’s Tory government, elected on a landslide because it promised us “sunlit uplands” of freedom, would prove to be the greatest threat to liberty in the history of the United Kingdom?

Well… Vox Political did, obviously, because I wrote about it before the 2019 general election. Perhaps people were deterred from reading it by the constant lies about This Writer being an anti-Semite, or the lies that only the Tory-biased mass media could possibly be able to give you the facts.

At the time, I wrote: “Page 48 of the Conservative Party manifesto… states: “We will update the Human Rights Act and administrative law to ensure that there is a proper balance between the rights of individuals, our vital national security and effective government.” It means: We will remove your right to protest against our dictatorship and if you try to stop us, we will use the police and the armed forces to PUT YOU DOWN.

“If you vote Conservative on December 12, that is what you are demanding.”

And nearly 14 million people, led by the nose by people like Laura Kuenssberg, Andrew Marr and Robert Peston, merrily voted away the hard-won liberties enjoyed by the other 54 million of us as well.

Now we find that, having already introduced dictatorial anti-protest measures in the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill last March, Home Secretary Priti Patel has apparently decided, halfway through its progress through Parliament, that it is not harsh enough and has amended it to make it even worse.

And this is a Bill that proposes outlawing protest that makes any noise or disturbs, in any way, a single person (thereby obviating the point of any protest, which is to draw attention to the issue under protest)!

Here’s Nadia Whittome with the headlines:

So “stop and search” powers, currently used by police if they have “reasonable grounds for suspecting” someone is carrying certain items or something which could be used to violate certain laws, like burglary or theft – and habitually abused by them to victimise people of colour – are being expanded, rather than restricted.

The Bill proposes that they now be used “whether or not the constable has any grounds for suspecting that the person… is carrying a prohibited object” in order to avoid “serious disruption” or a “public nuisance”. So police will be able to stop and search anybody, for any reason that comes into their heads.

Anyone obstructing a stop and search during a protest risks imprisonment for nearly a year. This is how dictatorships behave.

Two new amendments appear to be intended to stop the Insulate Britain protesters who have been supergluing themselves to roads – but the wording is so loose that it may be used indiscriminately against the general public.

So Amendment 319A creates an offence of “locking on”, or carrying equipment which might facilitate it, targeting anyone who attaches themselves to “a person, to an object or to land”. It could equally be applied to protestors who link arms during a sit-down protest, or even hold hands – or to people walking past a protest, having nothing to do with it, who just happen to be carrying a fixative of any kind. Such a person could also find him- or herself in prison for 51 weeks.

Isn’t it handy for Patel that outlawing the kind of protest carried out by Suffragettes a century ago means she’ll be able to get on and deport all those black people she hates so much, without being stopped by people blocking the road outside detention centres. She knew what she was doing.

And then there’s the new ASBO for people who want to protest against Tory dictatorship:

The most far-reaching and alarming part of the legislation is called an SDPO, or Serious Disruption Prevention Order. It is one of the most egregious assaults on individual freedom we’ve seen in modern legislation.

An SDPO is basically a protest Asbo. It can be imposed on anyone convicted of a “protest-related offence”. This category alone is extremely broad. It potentially applies, under the provisions of the bill itself, to the examples above – possessing superglue near a demonstration, or holding hands during a protest.

even that is not enough. Amendment 342M.2.iii allows it to be imposed on people whose activities “were likely to result in serious disruption”. In other words, you do not even have to have been convicted of a crime. You do not even need to have caused disruption. It’s enough that you might have.

Once the order is imposed, it eradicates your rights to freedom of speech and freedom of assembly. Those under an order can be forced to report to the authorities whenever the courts demand it, as often as they demand it. They must “present themselves to a particular person at a particular place at… particular times on particular days”.

They can also be prohibited from being at a certain place, or possessing certain items, or participating in certain activities, or socialising with certain people, for up to two years. They can be blocked from using the internet to “encourage” people to “carry out activities related to a protest”. Someone who used their social media account to promote a demonstration could be found in breach of the order. The SDPOs are a full-scale assault on the individual’s human rights. And they can apply even if they’ve never been convicted of a crime.

So that’s be it for This Writer; I have written in support of many protests in the past, including those attacking Tory government crimes against liberty.

And if the people who voted this dictatorship saw reports of protesters being jailed under these proposed new powers, what do you think they’d say?

They would say the protesters – or innocent bystanders – deserved it because their protest was against the law – as though it always had been.

These people never seem to learn from their mistakes.

Imagine their surprise and shock when the Tories take their houses away from them to pay for social care (or name any other recent Tory attack on poor/working class people) and they feel the same law applied to them when they try to oppose it.

If you see ARMED POLICE while out Christmas shopping, what will you think?

This is what seems to happen when police meet the public in any appreciable number. What do you think will happen when they’re armed?

Apparently this is serious:

Armed police and plain clothes officers will patrol Christmas markets in the UK so festive shoppers can feel safe.

Due to strict lockdown rules Christmas markets were cancelled in 2020 so festive events this year are expected to attract thousands of tourists.

Police have confirmed armed officers will be deployed to a vast Christmas market in Manchester city centre.

Greater Manchester Police said the officers will be there “in order to ensure those attending the markets feel safe”.

If I see armed police staring at me when I’m out Christmas shopping, I[‘m not going to feel safe.

And, far from encouraging me to visit Christmas markets, their presence is more likely to make me stay away.

Even if they are genuinely there to ensure safety, they’ll make us feel that their purpose is to intimidate us.

And that’s what counts. Right?

Mother of murdered sisters calls on Cressida Dick to clear the rot from the Met. Fat chance!

Cressida Dick: as Metropolitan Police Commissioner, she seems to spend all her time apologising for the crimes committed by her staff and none clearing out the villains who cause the problems in the first place.

How sad that, even in such a grubby case as this, Cressida Dick thinks her first job as Metropolitan Police commissioner is to protect the brand.

It’s too late for that!

In the case of murdered sisters Nicole Smallman and Bibaa Henry, not only did the Met not bother to look for the missing pair, but they actually left finding these ladies’ bodies to their family.

Then Met officers compounded the injury. Charged with one job – to guard the bodies and protect the integrity of the murder scene, PC Deniz Jaffer, 47, and PC Jamie Lewis, 33, took photographs of the bodies.

Jaffer took four photographs and Lewis superimposed his own face onto a picture with the victims in the background.

And as if this act of desecration wasn’t bad enough, they then shared the images to their colleagues via a WhatsApp group.

The Independent Office of Police Conduct, investigating, found Lewis “used degrading and sexist language to describe the victims at the crime scene he was protecting”.

Both officers have admitted misconduct in public office and have been told to expect prison sentences for what they did.

Dick has apologised to the mother of the deceased women, Mina Smallman.

However:

It is too late for apologies.

But it is pointless to ask Cressida Dick to stop the rot.

Her job is to protect the rot and distract attention away from it.
