    Retired coppers have a magic anti-prosecution forcefield though don't they? Or is that only for stuff they did while still employed by her Majesty's constabuary?

    For crimes committed against Tory Cabinet ministers it depends on ‘the Lodge’.

    Fingers crossed eh.

    I think they're trying to see if they can be done over data protection. In fairness it is rank shitness from the ex-coppers, dredging up details from a case they investigated but didn't prosecute. Its well out of order and maybe, just maybe, there is a chance for a win win win here now the ruling class have been shafted, maybe they may change the rules regarding the conduct of Police even when they are no longer in the force.

    As for the smut, that should have between him and his employer. Hang on, that's us.................

    Official secrets act may apply, in which case it remains in force after you leave the organisation you worked for.

    It isn't because it (releasing or using information they acquired as part of their public service for their own gain) is a petard that politicians would easily be hoisted from themselves.

    A380 How do I change this 'custom title' thing then?

    What really fucks the Tories off with cases like this and pleb gate* is that they really see the police as servant class. They don’t like it as it’s like their butler daring to talk about what goes on behind closed doors.

    * I have never forgiven the media for not taking the chance to call it Gate gate.

    The media were clearly nobbled. We need a latter day Bernstein and Woodward to investigate the murky background to Gategategate.

    I think the nobling was probably done as a favour by a multi billionaire. Probably someone who made their fortune out of software. I can’t prove it but I reackon it was the founder of Microsoft.

    It’s Gatesgategategste..

    The main one quoted apparently made up the fact that he was nearby the gate whist off duty and heard it all. When he wasn’t. Not a wise decision in probably one of the most CCTV surveilled areas of the word.

    I think the cop who was actually sworn at (agreed by both sides) and called a pleb ( never proven...) got a settlement.

    Did you notice how it conveniently drew attention away from a baby food scandal that was brewing at the time?

    That would be the scandal about the baby food leading to bone and muscle deformities and affecting the posture and walking stance of the children in later life, I suppose...

    ViolentPanda Hardly getting over it.

    I like that the bloke with the 3-d printer is obviously making gun barrels, to bring about the advent of Full Space Communism through Proletarian Democracy!

    I don't like that in the pic on the left, the illustrator is implying that black males are violent.

    Treeza says no vote to bring back fox hunting ‘cos it will lose the ‘yoof’ vote. Irony is nu labour were forced to have vote to ban it because it had been in labour manifesto for years but Blair & cohorts couldn’t really be arsed with it. Hunting never really went away anyway. No law against riding horses in a field & bring your dogs as well. If they get the scent of a fox not much anybody can do.

    Looks like he's just offering the robot a friendly fist bump. So clearly the point the illustrator is making is that black folk are all scabs :hmm:

    of all the shithouse things in the last manifesto fox hunting was the icing. The added fuck you, were back little man. As you say the cunts do hunt anyway but ykwim
