North Yorkshire Police have finally found a way to at least temporarily silence the citizen journalists who exposed the Jaconelli /Savile child abuse network in Scarborough when the might of North Yorkshire Police had inexplicably failed to expose it, for 50 years.
North Yorkshire Police, in an extraordinary legal move, are taking civil court action against two journalist Tim Hicks and Nigel Ward. It appears that Chief Constable Dave Jones, two other officers, a retired officer and 5 civilians sought a temporary injunction last week, at an interim hearing in a Leeds Court. Tim Hicks and Nigel Ward offered to give undertakings to the court. The matter returns next month for a full hearing when the police will be pressing for a full injunction  .
Remarkably the North Yorkshire Police claim that they are “victims” of harrassment and that the Police have spent £400,000 of the publics…

(not satire – it’s the Cameron government!)
Here are some of the strong words that were used in parliament today – by both Tory and Labour MPs – to describe David Cameron, Michael Gove and William Hague’s failed efforts to unseat the speaker John Bercow:
Grubby, squalid, nauseous, mean-spirited, humiliating, underhand, spiteful
Well yes. But has it really taken all this time for MPs to notice?
Because for some of us, all of those words sum up perfectly not just the last day, but the entire last 5 years of the Cameron/Clegg government.
For a full explanation of the complicated constitutional “jiggery pokery” that went on today, here’s the Guardian’s political editor Patrick Wintour on the whole sorry spectacle:
Please feel free to comment. And share.
Makes to much sense for the Legacy Party’s to think of it.
Most political parties, including UKIP, agree that the UK needs to cut the budget deficit. And to the extent that George Osborne’s new budget seeks to do that, he deserves half a cheer. The main thrust of UKIP’s criticism is not that he’s cutting the deficit, but that there was no mention of the immigration issue which is causing massive wage compression at the bottom of the income scale, and damaging the living standards of unskilled and semi-skilled workers. We also argue that while cuts are necessary, he’s cutting the wrong things — attacking the living tree while ignoring the dead wood.
But there’s also a fundamental misunderstanding out there amongst some of the old parties, especially Labour and the Lib-Dems. They see the need to cut the deficit, but they regard that as a simple, binary, either-or proposition. You can cut spending, or you can increase taxes. Take your…

I am sad to report that Colin Grainger passed away, yesterday the 16th March 2015. One can only begin to imagine the pain his family and friends are feeling. Colin was a former Chairman of Freedom2Choose, soon after our inception in 2007. Tributes have poured in to celebrate the life of a man who fought for the freedom of others, these are typical.

Hirsi Ali is one of the bravest women in the world, her very life at risk for her courage in speaking out. On International Women’s Day she of all people deserves to be honoured.
She has been hounded from country to country for her civilised views on women’s rights – not only the target of threats by jihadist beasts but also of yelping little leftists, even here in Jakarta.
But now we learn that a man who has lauded the idea of putting her to death is on Obama’s pay-roll!
An Egyptian-born imam who in 2007 said that Somali-born activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali should receive the death penalty for her criticism of Islam is now a Department of Justice contractor hired to teach classes to Muslims who are in federal prison.
