Another Metropolitan Police officer is charged with rape

It seems Vox Political was right again.

I wrote, a few days ago, that after Wayne Couzens was jailed for life for the kidnap, rape and murder of Sarah Everard, a culture of fear would settle on women in the UK.

I stated that “women will be left in greater fear of violence against them than ever – not because of men, as some in politics and the media are signalling, but because of the police.”

I continued: “You can bet the Met won’t do anything to change that. If you want proof, all you have to do is wait for the reports of the next crimes committed by officers of the Metropolitan Police.”

Well, we didn’t have to wait long, did we?

David Carrick, 46, of Stevenage, Hertfordshire, was arrested on Saturday over an alleged offence in St Albans on 4 September last year.

Mr Carrick, who is based within the Met’s Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection Command, was charged with rape by Hertfordshire Constabulary on Sunday.

I am legally bound to stress that the new allegations against David Carrick, a Met police officer from the same unit as Couzens, are only allegations at this time; he has been accused but any guilt or innocence must be established after a trial.

An initial court hearing was set to take place today (October 4).

Met Commissioner Cressida Dick has put out the usual circular that she releases when claims are made that harm her organisation:

“I am deeply concerned to hear the news today that an officer from the Met’s Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection Command has been arrested and now charged with this serious offence.

“I fully recognise the public will be very concerned too. Criminal proceedings must now take their course so I am unable to comment any further at this stage.”

But we have to wonder how long she can stay in her post. The Met’s reputation has been dragged through the mud since she has been in charge and she has made no visible attempt to change its culture of abuse.

Tory Kawczynski faces second probe into his behaviour as an MP

Well, he was last time. What will be Daniel Kawczynski’s excuse if he’s found guilty of the latest accusations against him?

Daniel Kawczynski is under investigation – again – by the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards over “actions causing significant damage to the reputation of the House as a whole, or of its Members generally”.

This comes after he was found to have drunkenly bullied civil servants over an IT issue.

He was ordered to apologise, which seemed a shockingly lenient punishment for a man who is a serial offender, as This Site described in a previous article.

I wonder how voters in Shrewsbury feel about their disgrace of a Parliamentary representative.

Details of the new accusations are not clear at the moment, but bringing the House of Commons into disrepute is a serious charge against members.

What will he get if found guilty this time – a slap on the wrist?

Tories plan to hit people over 60 with prescription charges

Prescription: if you’re over 60 and you need one of these – especially if it’s on a regular basis – then the price is set to skyrocket under a new Tory plan to make money for private healthcare firms.

Is this some of the government policy Lord Bethell has been discussing on his private email account, to keep it away from pesky Freedom of Information requests?

The Conservatives are planning to raise the age at which people may receive free prescriptions in England from 60 to 66, in line with the state pension age.

That’s the wrong yardstick, of course.

Firstly, prescriptions should be free to everybody because we all pay into the National Health Service via our taxes. If you are in England and you pay for prescriptions, you are literally paying twice for your medicine.

Secondly, if free prescriptions must be rationed, then in a country where many people are extremely poor, it makes sense to provide them to those who are most likely to need them – meaning, if they must be pegged to age, that they should become available at the age when most people start to suffer the illnesses associated with age.

The problem is that this is not a matter of medical need; it is about giving more money to the private companies that the Tory government has allowed to flood into the health service in order to make a profit from your pain.

That’s around £300 million per year, according to Lord Bethell – around £46.75 for an average person without need for regular medication – or £130.90 for people who need more than 12 prescriptions a year. And that’s at current prices which are sure to increase.

It’s a typical Tory back-of-a-fag-packet idea, based on a desire to rake in cash for people who don’t need it, from people who desperately do – but aren’t being given a choice about whether to give it up.

In other words: extortion.

Ministers are consulting on raising the age when people become eligible for free prescriptions in England to 66-years-old – but pharmacists branded the plan ‘unacceptable’

Nazanin to go back before Iranian court to face new charges – linked to Johnson’s blunder

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe: this wrongly-jailed woman has become a pawn in an international power struggle.


Just when it seemed Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s Iranian prison ordeal was coming to an end, she’s being dragged back into court.

And that country’s officials have taken great pleasure in letting us know that her plight is due to blundering Boris Johnson, the UK’s prime muppet.

Johnson was the idiot who blurted out in Parliament – in 2017, when he was Foreign Secretary – that Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe had been “training journalists”.

She had been doing nothing of the kind.

A project manager with the Thomson Reuters Foundation, she had been doing nothing more sinister than visiting her family for the Persian New Year celebration when she was arrested in 2016.

But the Iranian authorities seized on Johnson’s idiotic remark and threatened to use it to add five more years to her five-year prison sentence.

Now – three years after Johnson misspoke, it seems they have decided to follow through on the threat:

Richard Ratcliffe said his wife will appear in court on Sunday accused of “spreading propaganda against the regime” in Iran.

Apparently that’s how they describe the teaching of journalism – which she wasn’t doing in any event.

Of course we all know that Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s imprisonment has more to do with the £400 million that the UK government owes to Iran.

It could not be paid before because of international sanctions – but when Boris Johnson’s career was in danger, it seems such concerns evaporated.

How contrary, then, for us to find that the money has not been paid, apparently because Johnson doesn’t want to upset Donald Trump.

Johnson, it seems, wanted to wait until after the US presidential election on November 3 because he wanted to know whether Trump would still be US president before taking action.

So the Iranian decision to go back to court now has put him in a particularly sticky situation.

Will he pay up and get Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe back?

Or will he delay, to stay on the right side of Donald Trump?

I think we all know the answer to that. Johnson is the runt of international politics.

When powerful people squabble, it is always the innocents who suffer.

Vox Political scrapbook: June 7

The Metropolitan Police has joined the government in losing public confidence after reacting with violence during a peaceful anti-racism protest:

Would that be Met Police Commissioner Cressida Dick?

The Covid-19 infection rate in the UK is rising:

And the (official) death toll has passed 40,000:

Labour has no moral high ground on the race issue:

Labour is a cesspit if one of the party’s MPs can be shamed into deleting a link to a perfectly reasonable article:

And the shadow Work and Pensions Secretary has responded to his detractors:

Vigilantism has arisen in the US:

Who can blame them, considering the state of their police?

But protest is not about to die down:

US President Trump has done an about-face on George Floyd:

But we all know what he is, anyway:

By the way, that stuff he has been taking to keep Covid-19 at bay? It doesn’t work:

More government claims:

But hasn’t the government already lowered its standards? There’s a new petition to stop the importing of chlorinated chicken:

More claims about the government:

And Dominic Cummings is still hated and ridiculed:

 

If you hear Boris Johnson making a claim, it’s probably a lie – as his PMQs performance proves

Duper’s delight: This is the smile Boris Johnson wears when he is lying. He would have been wearing it in Parliament during PMQs but he was too busy wagging his hands around.

How reassuring it was to hear Boris Johnson claim that the bursary for trainee nurses has been restored and that hospital parking is free.

There’s just one small issue: trainee nurses shouldn’t apply for that bursary and anyone visiting hospital should bring their cash with them.

Because both of Johnson’s claims were lies.

The UK now has a prime minister so dishonourable, so low, that he thinks nothing of telling falsehoods to the nation, wholesale.

In Prime Minister’s Questions, he boasted: “We’ve restored the nurses’ bursary, introduced a bill to ensure a record cash boost for our NHS, and ensured there is free hospital car parking for everybody who attends a hospital.”

That reminds me: adjust the figures for inflation and his “record cash boost for our NHS” turns out to be nothing of the sort.

Here’s Nursing Notes on Johnson’s lies:

While a new educational grant of up to £8,000 per year will be offered to all nursing students on courses from September 2020, it falls significantly short of the bursary system previously scrapped by the Conservative Party as students will graduate with up to £60,000 of debt.

The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has previously confirmed that from April 2020 some hospital staff and visitors will be entitled to free parking. However, this will be limited to blue badge holders and the parents of sick children staying overnight.

And for those of you who prefer audio-visual records:

Mum’s court challenge against DWP demand for UC claimants to go into childcare debt

Why should the Department for Work and Pensions demand that parents on Universal Credit go into debt over childcare costs?

Current rules say parents can get up to £646 per month for each child under 16, funding 85 per cent of their care costs – but they must pay those costs up-front and claim them back later, putting them in debt.

Some end up thousands of pounds in the red.

The DWP says this is to prevent fraud – but there are ways to do this that don’t push people into debt.

Just off the top of This Writer’s head: what’s wrong with having a letter from the provider, saying exactly what the costs will be in advance? That proof is as good as anything else.

The rule may be unlawful, discriminatory, and in breach of the European Convention on Human Rights (which I should remind readers is nothing to do with the EU and therefore is something by which they UK must still abide).

Now, single mum Nichola Salvato is demanding a judicial review of the DWP’s dodgy rule.

She also happens to be a professional benefits advisor and is supported by Save the Children – so it seems likely that she knows her facts.

But will a ruling against the DWP do any good? Tories aren’t very good at following laws they don’t like – and the general election handed them far too much power to do anything they feel like.

Is Arcuri cashing in on relationship with Boris Johnson?

TV interview: It has been alleged that Jennifer Arcuri is charging six-figure sums for appearances and here she is on ITV’s Good Morning Britain.

Jennifer Arcuri, the woman implicated in the Boris Johnson ‘conflict of interest’ scandal, is apparently cashing in on her new notoriety.

According to The Guardian, a US lawyer claiming to act on behalf of Arcuri said he was inviting media outlets, including British publications, to bid six-figure sums for an interview with her.

It seems ITV’s Good Morning Britain may have coughed up that kind of cash – for all the good it did. Ms Arcuri appeared, but refused to say anything indicative about her relationship with Mr Johnson.

The latest development in the scandal is a claim that the prime minister, as Mayor of London, wrote a letter of recommendation for Ms Arcuri to get a job as head of a technology quango called Tech City.

She was a 27-year-old student when she applied for the £100,000-a-year job in 2012 – and didn’t get it.

She has claimed that Mr Johnson did not help her at all, although in an email leaked to The Guardian, she allegedly later wrote: “I still have the letter of rec from Boris. hahaha. To think that we asked him to write us a recommendation for the CEO of Tech City is just hysterical.”

The US businesswoman accompanied Mr Johnson on three overseas trade missions led by the then mayor, after initially being turned down for two of them. Her companies were also awarded £126,000 of public money.

Now it seems she is getting the same kind of cash for five minutes saying nothing worth hearing on national television.

It seems her relationship with BoJob is still paying off.

Almost three-quarters of people hit by the Bedroom Tax are sick or disabled

Iain Duncan Smith was the architect of the hated Bedroom Tax.

Was the so-called Bedroom Tax a tool to attack people with long-term illnesses and disabilities?

That seems to be the conclusion we reach from an answer to a Parliamentary question by minister for welfare delivery Will Quince.

He said by April 2019, 240,350 households had been affected by the State Under-Occupation Charge – the penalty inflicted on Housing Benefit claimants who have a spare bedroom.

Of these, a staggering 170,360 households – 71 per cent of the total – included a person in receipt of sickness or disability benefit.

Figures for Universal Credit claimants – whose Housing Benefit is included in the amount they receive under this benefit – were not available.

It seems clear that the penalty disproportionately affects people with long-term illnesses and/or disabilities, and we may speculate that this is what it was intended to do.

We know the United Nations has ruled that this discrimination is a “grave and systematic violation” of the human rights of those affected.

And we know that the government has had to re-write the laws governing the bedroom tax, to exempt couples who cannot share a bedroom due to a physical disability and families who need an extra room for a disabled child’s carer.

We are told that the Bedroom Tax, together with other changes to benefits, has left sick and disabled people four times worse-off than their able-bodied equivalents.

And the hardship caused by the withdrawal of 14 per cent of their housing benefit (for one “spare” room; 25 per cent for two) has forced some disabled people to go without food while others went without medicine.

This Site, and others like it, have reported the deaths of a large number of disabled people that may be directly connected to this withdrawal of funds.

The Department for Work and Pensions refuses to admit that there is anything wrong.

But the evidence mounts up further every day.

New Tory PM will have to explain why the NHS is now CHARGING for healthcare

Running away: You can bet Matt Hancock will not want to explain why “free at the point of use” NHS has started charging patients thousands of pounds for procedures that used to be free.

“We are committed to a National Health Service that is free at the point of use,” said any number of Conservative government politicians in the years since Andrew Lansley let parasitical, profit-driven companies start leeching off of it.

Oh really?

Then why has it been revealed that hospitals are starting to charge for large numbers of surgical and other procedures, while our attention has been distracted by the Tory leadership contest?

Warrington and Halton Hospitals Trust says it does not choose what procedures are provided free – this is decided by NHS commissioners, who in turn base their decisions on the amount of funding available from the Conservative government.

The implication is clear:

The Tories are forcing poor people to pay thousands of pounds for operations that should be free, because they wanted to give our money to the parasites instead.

This is a scandalous betrayal.

Where is Health Secretary Matt Hancock’s apology? Where is his commitment to ensure that these operations are free at the point of use? Where is his resignation for allowing this to happen at all?

And if these things are not forthcoming:

Where is Theresa May’s apology and order that this change is reversed?

I think we might be told to go whistle for that, too.

If so, it will be for the prime minister who is being chosen at the moment to account for this disgrace.

Warrington and Halton Hospitals Trust offers new hips for £18,143 among a list of 71 costly private treatments.

Desperate patients are being left in agony because they cannot afford the private operations on offer at an NHS trust that were once free.

Vital procedures such as hip and knee replacements cost up to £18,143, ­cataracts £2,368 and hernias £7,719, way outside most ordinary people’s budgets.
