Phil Woolas in Court

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by Kitmarlowe, Sep 13, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

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

  1. The 'berk' Woolas will not be found guilty - his sort never are. You want 'guilty', try little old ladies or 80 year old veterans.
  2. If the Daily Hate is going to campaign viciously gainst anyone or anything, then Phil Woolas is a pretty inspired target. He has never done a day's proper work in his effing life - classical University, union officiaal track record with a brief sinecure at the BBC. His agitprop tactics at the last GE are now coming home to roost and I sincerely hope that the photo-shopping, image-manipulating **** gets bounced from the house and suffers the appropriate penalty, to whit: "it follows automatically that the candidate who is found to be guilty of that, has his election voided, and that candidate would be incapable of being elected to the House of Commons or being elected at a local election for three years from the decision of the election court.”

    That penalty would make his life even more meaningless than it is already and would leave him barred from the gravy train at an era when the QUANGO as first resort of the parliamentarian is no longer viable. He is also a David "Banana-chimp" Milliband supporter.
  3. Just thought I'd have a look and see if I could find anything on t'web and found this Phil Woolas' election leaflets were a disgrace | Political Scrapbook

    I think I can see one charge of inciting racial hatred and a definate case of "Hang on, you've just spent 13 years doing exactly that" First read thro made me think the BNP had been faking Labour Election leaflets

    So, you're saying he's like Keith Vaz, a bit, mostly, except he went to Uni, and Vaz didn't?
  5. Keith Vaz went to university - and public school. Yes, Labour MP goes to public school and Oxbridge - shock probe!

    Ruddy hell, so they're more alike than even I thought. I reckon a dating service would match them up a treat. Wasted education, champagne socialist, liars, Labour, corrupt, venal, not too bright, and everyone around them has their characters pinged good and proper.
  7. CheersKitmarlowe, this had indeed passed me by. Its brightened my morning up now though!
    I sincerely hope Woolas ends up unemployed and is crucified, homeless and living in a carboard box (whilst still nailed to his cross)
  8. Biped - ink and ether cost money. In future a solid description of these two would be "pair of *****". Simples.
  9. Bloody fence sitter!

    On the thread itself... Somehow doubt that Woolas will be found guilty, we can but hope.

    Much as I'd like to see Phil Woolas ejected from Parliament, I can't see it happening over this. It seems to me the complaint is a bit 'woolly' (see what I did there?).

    I'm also surprised to see a Lib-Dem describing free speech as a 'privilege'. What's that all about?
  11. I apologise, I shall try to be more assertive in my criticism in future!!

    I'm surprised this has even got to court, funny how the world turns and the likes of Woolas no longer live in quite the same protective cocoon they used to wrap themselves in isn't it?

    There is a certain sweey irony in all of this. Watkins (Woolas's oponent) is being represented in court by Matrix Chambers, the company of the wide mouthed bitch Mrs Blair.
  12. Don't knock it cpunk! If only more people bought into the concept that our "yooman rights" are in fact democratic privileges, earned and protected by actions over the centuries, then people might think a bit more clearly about them.

    Wooooaah there horsey! Democratic privileges? I beg to differ. I'd prefer to think of them as 'British Rights' that people have fought and died for, and the government messes with them at their peril. If you mean oooman rights as they apply to prisoners, law-breakers, non-citizens and the permanently unemployable, fcuk'em, they didn't earn them.

    Equality in Action.
  14. I think that if people describe "rights" as inalienable, then they tend to think that they are so, regardless of what you do to defend them. The British rights you are thinking of are the same as the democratic privileges I refer to. They were earned by campaigning, when campaigns involved field artillery, pikes and iron rations and not a party political broadcast on C4. They were maintained through the exercise of the common law of the UK and by the deaths of those who defended the liberty of the UK. It is easy to get a bit emotional about them especially when people who didn't earn them and haven't defended them take the piss.

    edited to add: I choose to use the expression privileges because the word conveys a sense of continuing to earn and qualify for them, rather than taking them for granted and spunking them up the wall. Everyone and his **** of an uncle seems to know their rights these days but few of them could explain where they originated from, the train of campaigners, heroes and statesmen responsible, from Magna Carta via the Chartists and Peel etc.
