Baroness Scotland: IPSO complaints thrown out

I just entered Baroness Sotland into search on BBC News - latest news is her denial of extravagance from November 2016.

Anything featured in broadcasts ?. Not from my experience.

BBC News - fit for purpose.

Looks like the only mainstream paper covering this is The Times. Bit surprising as this is usually classed as an open goal by the media.

I think the Heil is probably massing it's fire, getting ready to start the bombardment on sunday as I think the original allegations were in the Mail on Sunday, the retraction was on behalf of the MoS, so it's only fair that everyone gets a giggle over their cornflakes on Sunday before Marr and Neil, especially if there are "new" revelations, which is quite possible, to throw into the mix as, well, she's now proven to be a liar so everything's going to stick like shit to velcro.
 
A serving firefighter, London fire Brigade:
Is that what used to be called a fireman? You know, the cnuts who used to go on strike leaving us to mop up their mess? Talk about the pot calling the kettle black and dipping noses in the public trough!

Blunt BTW also rhymes with ladies' Naughtie parts! There is a reason for that.
 
Is this the same Baroness Scotland who was slapped with a £5,000 fine for employing an illegal immigrant as her "housekeeper"?

Attorney General Baroness Scotland fined £5,000 over illegal immigrant housekeeper

Being a qualified barrister, Queen's Counsel and former Attorney General, you'd think she would be aware of the procedures to be followed when employing an immigrant. As a former government chief law officer, she helped to draft those procedures. Instead she stated that she'd only committed a "technical breach" of employment law.

You do have to wonder why the incoming Tory government decided to appoint a convicted criminal who thinks she is above the law to a senior diplomatic post. Perhaps she's got polaroids of Dave picking up a pig's head from the butchery counter at Harrods.

Ohh do tell more about the fragrant Crispin do please.

Yes, that's us, not afraid to stand up to bullies.

Another award to an insovent firm run by Lord Patel to produce a report which now cannot be found.

And this:


Business as usual then
 
The Baroness certainly seems to delight in continuously courting or being involved with controversy ... courtesy of the BBC

UK diplomats have told Lady Scotland, the secretary-general of the Commonwealth, that Britain's annual £4.7m voluntary contribution will be withheld until her secretariat improves its financial procedures.
.... full article linky .... UK suspends funding to Commonwealth Secretariat

... perhaps she may now resign .. Hi HI .

Edited ... typo .

Did Ronny Biggs commit a technical breach of a mail train perchance?
 
And the accounting was audited by KPMG!
..... which identified failings ... from my original linky ....

"An independent audit report by KPMG has identified significant weaknesses in the Commonwealth Secretariat's approach to managing procurement. As a result, New Zealand has put on hold its voluntary financial contribution to the Secretariat until we receive independent confirmation the recommendations from the audit report have been addressed by the Secretariat."
 
Baroness Scotland comes from Dominica (pronounced Domineeka, with a squawk like the bird on their flag, to distinguish them from the Dominican Republic).

Our lass's dad came from Dominica and the Dominica side of the family all live in Hackney, all vote for Abbott, including the one who has a high level HR job in the City, and the ones who heard about her all boast about how well "Val" (Scotland) is doing and how proud they are of her.

Our lass didn't grow up with them, voted Conservative and Leave, is scrupulously honest, generous, kind and considerate, and the London side of the family can't understand where she has gone wrong.

Her four year term of office expires end of this month.

Nobody (apart from her and cronies) wants to see that renewed, hence loud noises about suspension of funding pending etc. etc.

That said the Commonwealth Secretariat was a complete cesspit long before she arrived (and made it worse)
