Criminology, probation and stuff

Some musings on criminology with a focus on probation

Jack Straw- PM? No thanks!

with 2 comments

Thanks to Andrew Neilson for pointing me in the direction of the politicshome.com website which I’d never come across before. Thanks especially for the point to the positively terrifying survey that says that more people think that Jack Straw would make the best prime minister and leader of the Labour Party than any of the other contenders.

Thankfully, when you actually look at the results, 40% of people think that ‘don’t know’  would actually be the best contender.  I’m with that 40% all the way! Even if so many people ‘don’t know’ because of apathy, lack of awareness or genuine confusion, I’m still with them- any of these alleged ills of a politically apathetic society are better than Jack Straw.

    Maverick award winning filmmakers Bill Maloney and Lilly Starr expose Jack Straw clearly lying about children in care – Hear Straws lies on tape!
    In the lead up to the general election 2010 the Sun newspaper has introduced a regular slot for a London Black Cabbie to ask major politicians questions from ‘the man on the street’. The Cabbie happens to be a personal friend of Bill Maloney who trained him to act almost five years ago. Last week Jack Straw took the back seat in the London cab and answered a number of questions. The Cabbie had recently seen and been outraged by a video report by Maloney and was keen to hear Jack Straws answer to this question:

    Cabbie: “JACK! I HAD THIS FILMMAKER BILL MALONEY IN THE BACK OF MY CAB YESTERDAY. HE’S DOING A DOCUMENTARY ON CHILD ABUSE AND HE TOLD ME THAT LAST YEAR YOU CHANGED A LAW SO THAT IS NOW MAKES IT ILLEGAL FOR CHILDREN IN CARE TO SPEAK OUT, EVEN IF THEY FEEL THEY ARE BEING MALTREATED – IS THAT RIGHT JACK?”

    Jack Straw: “NO! NO! …….. ONE HAS SO MUCH TO REMEMBER, OCCASIONALLY YOU HAVE MEMORY LAPSES AND I THINK I WOULD HAVE REMEMBERED THAT!”

    Watch the full report to believe it. BILL MALONEY POINTS THE FINGER DIRECTLY AT JACK STRAW.
