Hello, Elephant in the room!

Plans for a new 10,000-strong army of specially trained border police – to be funded in part by scrapping Tony Blair's £20 billion national identity card scheme – will be announced by David Cameron today.

Addressing the Metropolitan Police Service Marine Support Unit, he will say: "Right now our society is not properly defended against the drug dealers, people smugglers, gun importers and terrorists who find it all too easy to bypass the current system." Telegraph



Hello, knock knock, anyone at home in the Conservative party

The right of every European citizen to move and reside freely within the territory of the Member States is enshrined in the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU, adopted in December 2000. The charter also states that these rights 'may' be granted to third-country nationals.

What does the traditional right to free movement for EU citizens entail?

The right to free movement means that every EU citizen is entitled to travel freely around the Member States of the European Union, and settle anywhere within its territory. No special formalities are required to enter an EU country. This fundamental right extends to members of the EU citizen's family, and applies regardless of their situation or the reason for travel or residence.

Unless Cameron is prepared to pack his trunk and say goodbye to the EU circus, then a conservative government cant do border controls.

"Citius, Altius, Fortius"

The cost of hosting the 2012 Olympics is rising FASTER than any other in history. The final cost could be HIGHER than £9bn. At £1.8 Billion per ring, there is no STRONGER argument for scraping the whole charade.



"The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well."

va te faire foutre depuis 2005

French presidential candidate and interior minister Nicolas Sarkozy has chastised the 18 countries who have already ratified the EU constitution for discussing European integration without involving France.

At a political rally with around 7,000 supporters in Strasbourg on Wednesday evening (21 February), Mr Sarkozy said "I must express my sadness over the Madrid meeting where for the first time since 1945...European countries met to discuss the future of Europe without France," (Euobserver)



France rejected the European Union constitution by 54 percent in a referendum in 2005 leading to a political conundrum in Europe that member states have been trying to extract themselves from ever since.

Fuck off citizens



The government has been embarrassed by a petition against road pricing on the Downing Street website which has now passed the 1.1 mln signature mark

Transport Secretary Douglas Alexander said the government did not have the option of 'doing nothing' to tackle growing congestion on Britain's roads, despite wide opposition to road pricing.

Crucial to government plans is the EU's satellite navigation system Galileo. Now you may be wondering why on earth the EU has spent 3–4 billion Euros on a satellite navigation system when we already have one. Ah, but you see it's an American one, and the EU doesn't like that, they're scared that the US might turn it off. So the EU has spent all those Euros on something that nobody needs. And now that it has spent all that money, the EU intends to make sure that there is something that Galileo can make money from. And you're it.

State funding (political parties)

Sir Hayden Philips, the former senior civil servant now reviewing how the parties are financed, is actively considering a huge increase in state funding for political parties. Under the plans, state funding would reportedly soar from about £6 million now to as much as £28 million. (Telegraph)



Constitutionally, State funding of political parties is illegal

Article 8 of the BILL OF RIGHTS [1689] states:

'That election of members of parliament ought to be free'.

“Free” elections are elections free from interference by the state.

Tooting Cameron

David Cameron was drawn into new controversy over drugs after reports that he smoked cannabis when a schoolboy at Eton. (The Mail on Sunday)

Cameron faced repeated questioning over his previous experience of drugs during the campaign for the Conservative leadership in 2005, after he refused to say whether he had ever used illicit substances.

In a TV interview then, he said: "I'm allowed to have had a private life before politics in which we make mistakes and we do things that we should not and we are all human and we err and stray."

He hinted he had taken drugs by saying he had had a 'normal' university life, but insisted his right to privacy meant there was no need to give more details.



No doubt he thinks he was allowed to have a 'normal political life' before he became leader of the party.

The Code Napoleon

Brussels proposes that national governments will no longer have the full sovereign right to decide what constitutes a crime and what the punishment should be.

A draft paper to be introduced on Thursday (8 January) which has been seen by EUobserver calls for "more dissuasive sanctions for environmentally harmful activities, which typically cause or are likely to cause substantial damage to the air, soil, water, animals or plants".

In this week's piece of legislation, to be introduced by commissioners Franco Frattini (justice and home affairs) and Stavros Dimas (environment), the European Commission argues that environment protection should be adressed through action at EU level.

Is there anybody reading this old enough to remember:

"The house as a whole may therefore be reassured that there is no question of this bill (The European Communities Bill 1972) making a thousand years of British law subservient to the Code Napoleon".
Mr. Geoffrey Rippon, Hansard, 15 Feb 1972. Pg.270.

"Our sovereignty cannot be bartered away by the Solicitor General, or even by the Prime Minister, because it is not theirs to give. I speak not only of the sovereignty of this house, but also of the higher sovereignty of the British people".
Mr Alfred Morris MP. Hansard, 17 Feb 1972 Pg. 727-8.

"There are some in this country who fear that in going into Europe we shall in some way sacrifice independence and sovereignty. These fears, I need hardly say, are completely unjustified."
Prime Minister Edward Heath, television broadcast on Britain's entry into the Common Market, January 1973.

No2ID

The Conservatives have written to Cabinet Secretary Sir Gus O'Donnell to give formal notice that they would scrap identity cards if elected. (BBC)

Shadow home secretary David Davis asked what provision there was to protect against early cancellation costs.

The party has also written to likely major contractors to warn them.



A Downing Street spokesman refused to comment on the Tories' cancellation proposals, as they were "party political". And their attentions are directed to more important issues.

Update

Iain Dale has a copy of what is alledged to be the text of his letter on his site, which reads as follows:

I am writing to you in relation to the Government's planned roll out of its national identity card scheme, commencing this year. You will be aware that there is a longstanding convention that one Parliament may not bind a subsequent Parliament.As you will also be aware, the Conservative Party has stated publicly that it is our intention to cancel the ID cards project immediately on our being elected to government. You are now formally on notice of our position and fully appraised of the contingent risks and associated liabilities arising from the national identity card scheme.

In light of these risks, I urge you to consider very carefully the government's position, in advance of the roll-out of the scheme later this year. As a matter of financial prudence, it is incumbent upon you to ensure that public money is not wasted, and contractual obligations are not incurred, investing in a scheme with such a high risk of not being implemented. In particular, I would be interested to know what provision, if any has, been made in the relevant contractual arrangements to protect the Government - and public funds - against the costs that would be incurred as a result of early cancellation of the scheme.

David Davis is of course correct, "one Parliament may not bind a subsequent Parliament".

However, any contract entered into with 3rd parties, is on behalf of the CROWN and not government in parliament.

Its this sort of fucked up thinking that got us into the European Union.

For god sake when will the conservative party ever learn.

Perhaps he needs to read a copy of the EC Convention on the Law Applicable to Contractual Obligations

Gangsters, a Moll, and the 'G'-man

A Very British Organised Crime Syndicate

SCOTLAND YARD detectives who are investigating the cash for honours scandal have uncovered a private meeting held last summer at which key Downing Street aides allegedly plotted a cover-up.

The meeting was attended by four of Tony Blair’s closest aides, including Jonathan Powell, his chief of staff, Lord Levy, Labour’s chief fundraiser, John McTernan, director of political operations, and Ruth Turner, a senior adviser. (Sunday Times)

THREE businessmen who secretly loaned Labour millions of pounds have links to the Smith Insititute, which is being investigated over its ties to Gordon Brown.

Rod Aldridge, former head of Capita, a government contractor, Sir Christopher Evans, the biotech tycoon, and Lord Sainsbury, the former science minister, all attended Smith Institute functions where they were lauded by the chancellor.

Blair with wallet, for honour in the study

Senior Labour figures fear the Crown Prosecution Service will be under intense pressure to bring criminal charges over the cash for honours scandal because of the fevered atmosphere surrounding the long-running police investigation.

The prime minister, who has been interviewed as a witness for a second time, is said to be confident that he will not face prosecution despite the dramatic events over the last week which saw two of the key figures, Lord Levy, his full-time fundraiser, and his political gatekeeper, Ruth Turner, arrested under suspicion of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.



No 10 is still confident that police do not have evidence that could prove the sale of honours for political purposes. But the arrest of Lord Levy and Ms Turner has raised the prospect that police are investigating a cover-up, and some Labour sources fear charges could follow.




The Guardian has learned that the police investigation took a dramatic turn because of a surprise discovery of additional information previously unknown to the police. It is understood that a senior figure in No 10 subject to a series of interviews revealed some fresh information.

Excheq-Air

The Air Passenger Duty increases that were announced by Gordon Brown in the Pre-Budget report on the 7th of December, came into effect today

The problem is that neither the airlines nor the government have the legal right to collect the increased duty.



There is a constitutional clause in law,

Edw. II 1322 Revocatio Novarum Ordinationum
"Ordinances or provisions concerning the King and the realm made by subjects shall be void and none such shall be made except by the King, Lords and Commons in Parliament".

The Prince's Case (1606) 8 Co Rep 1A; 77 ER 481; [1606] EWHC Ch J6 A document on the Parliamentary Roll is conclusive as to its validity as an Act if it shows on its face that everything has been done which the common law of the United Kingdom has prescribed for the making of an Act of Parliament - that the Queen, the Lords and the Commons have assented to it: "If an Act be penned, that the King with the assent of the Lords, or with the assent of the Commons, it is no Act of Parliament for three ought to assent to it scil. The King, the Lords and the Commons."

This was reiterated in the Bill of Rights of 1689 the government cannot raise taxes without enacting legislation.

That levying money for or to the use of the Crown by pretence of prerogative, without grant of Parliament, for longer time, or in other manner than the same is or shall be granted, is illegal;

This clause was confirmed by the ruling in the case of Bowles v. Bank of England [1913] where Parker J. ruled
By the statute 1 W. & M., usually known as the Bill of Rights, it was finally settled that there could be no taxation in this country except under authority of an Act of Parliament. The Bill of Rights still remains unrepealed, and no practice or custom, however prolonged, or however acquiesced in on the part of the subject, can be relied on by the Crown as justifying any infringement of its provisions. It follows that, with regard to the powers of the Crown to levy taxation, no resolution, either of the Committee for Ways and Means or of the House itself, has any legal effect whatever. Such resolutions are necessitated by a parliamentary procedure adopted with a view to the protection of the subject against the hasty imposition of taxes, and it would be strange to find them relied on as justifying the Crown in levying a tax before such tax is actually imposed by Act of Parliament.

Seems the wings are going to come off this little flight of fancy
