Lady Scotland and the Home Office help

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Well she should be charged taken to court and face the maximum penalty but of course that won't happen. :evil:

    It will be a case of do as I say not as I do.
  2. It strikes me, Finky, that lately, when it comes to your beloved Socialist/Stalinist Party, you've reversed your course.
    Any particular reason?

    If I may? Because the Reichsminister in question appears to be bang to rights? :roll:
    Unaccustomed as I am to blowing sunshine up finknottle's cyberchuff, in his favour, he knows that you can't polish a turd.

    The Torygraph carried an article this morning showcasing an Italian restauranteur who had taken on some lass he was convinced was Spanish and therefore legal. Turned out she was Bolivian and illegal. NI number was legit. He was fined a crippler. Mrs Scotland QC had no reason to doubt her employee's quals either.

    Watching this space and waiting for the 'not in the public interest' excuse. :evil:

    I think it's brilliant New Labour stuff. She's the first female and black Attorney General (no elected Parliament seat, but parachuted into the Lords of course) who helps create an immigration law that virtually makes it an absolute offence without much defence, other than to have been misled by false documents. She herself employs a woman from Tonga, clearly an illegal, to do her cleaning up. Now they are all rallying behind the Baroness, with words of "'s been a simple mistake, it was a member of the Baroness' staff who checked the documents, nothing to do with her..." Well sorry, it has everything to do with her. And if it was a Chinese restaurant owner who had done the same thing, employing an illegal to cook chicken fried rice, he'd be coughing up ten grand a time.

    This one will run. Hopefully she'll be another Labour gonner and bloody soon.

    I also like the way that Downing Street says "We have full confidence in Baroness Scotland".

    Would that be because they all work to the same ethics, of having confidence in anything which is wrong?

    :? :wink:
  5. Not at all dear boy, my principles remain the same and that cannot be said for the riff-raff that governs us. Sadly when they loose power nothing will change so there's no hope for the United Kingdom; or is there?
  6. We can all be certain that everyone in the Attorney General's office is beavering away trying to find a reason why she should not be prosecuted and pay the fine.They will give it a few weeks for the heat to die down and then quietly announce that "a prosecution is not in the public interest".

    Thanks for quoting me, Trelawney. But was there a point..? :?
  9. So you're saying your party has let you down.
    In that event, no doubt you'll be casting your principled vote elsewhere.
    Care to tell us where that would be?
  10. This is a more complex problem than I first thought. According to BBC Q&A time today, a solicitor stated that employers should ask to see and copy the applicants passport. Attatched to the passport will be a visa. Now the difficult bit! On the visa will be the date it expires.
    One must ask oneself if we can expect Baroness Scotland the Attorney General to know the date. If she was appointed by this current bafoon or his predecessor, she won't even know what planet shes on. So how can she be expected to know such mundane a thing as the time,let alone the year.
  11. Good news for Lady Scotland...Baroness Uddin is going to be the Defence Consul....Now if shes found to be in the wrong they can play all the trump cards! :wink:
  12. Baroness Uddin?

    Is that the one who claimed to live in a flat where no-one had ever seen her?

    And was recompensed for that?
  13. Ooh, this is gonna be good. Where's me popcorn gone ....?
  14. No party politics, flymo, and it's not worth any popcorn. I just find it amazing that anyone can defend our current crop of politicians, no matter what the party. Finky is on record for defending our reigning Junta, but all of a sudden he seems to have changed his tune. Very quietly.

    Where's Guy Fawkes when you need him?

    You just know nothing will happen to her, look at all the other labour politicians who've fcuked up and got away with it, christ, one of them even killed someone whilst speeding, what did he get? 10 hours in a cell or something. Then you have mandleson, he's been sacked twice for being a crocked twat, hasn't done him any harm now has it, the tosser is a lord and is building himself a fortune with taxpayers money.

    Everyone who is kicking up a stink over this fails to understand one simple thing. None of the rules and laws passed by this government apply to anybody in it, they are above the critisism and failings of us mere mortals. They are the elite and can do what they want without fear of repercussions. After all, some pigs are more equal than others.
  16. The one thing that has been quite clear almost from the date that Blair became PM is that the his promise that the Labour party would be free of sleaze was at best not worth the paper it was written on, at worst a downright lie.

    B Scotland is just the latest in an almost constant procession of corrupt and ineffective government ministers.

    Don't blame me I voted SNP

  17. I too find defending the whole of Parliament very difficult at this time. I don't have a problem with anyone wishing to review their current views upon the political "elite". It is rather difficult to take the word "elite" seriously in this context.

    Part of me is unhappy that I am no longer living in the UK and not able to make a very small difference by voting '"accordingly" and then I am glad that I normally live in Jersey (6 weeeks to go before we get to go home) and that I am out of that "scene" - even though Jersey has a corrupt Government\judiciary\civil service who have been covering up for child abusers.

    Depends how long you've been out of the UK. If you've been a registered voter in the last 15 years you can still register to vote in General and European elections in the constituency in which you were previously registered.
