Damian Green Arrested by New Labour's Nanny State.

I was appalled last night while watching Question Time to hear of the arrest of Conservative MP Damian Green for his involvement in leaking information that had been passed to him by a Home Office whistleblower.

The Metropolitan Police sent anti-terrorist officers to search Mr. Green's home and his offices and at present his email facility is frozen so his constituents are unable to contact their elected representative.

If ever there were proof needed that the political party that is running our country is turning us into a nanny state by the back door, here we have it dancing in front of us with it's two fingers held high and its genitalia on display and dangling low.

In an interview, Gordon Brown - the one we think has a part-time job with GMTV as he spends so much time on it - told Sky News: "I had no prior knowledge, the home secretary had no prior knowledge, I know of no other minister who had any prior knowledge. I knew about it only after it had happened."

Jacqui Smith, the Home Secretary who has an answer for everything and knows everything [cough] except about this, has furiously scrubbed her hands of the whole affair. [the words, of, load and bollocks are springing to mind]

It would appear the whole world and it's mother knew what was happening except the people who should have known.

Let Crusty make one thing - to use a Jacqui Smithonym - perfectly clear. Our politicians are elected by the people of this country to represent their constituencies. They are our voices in the pot-of-shit known as Parliament. Since the New Labour monster entered the halls of power we have had nothing but spin, lies and cover ups and when asked a specific question about something that may be embarrassing, transform into a Star Trek type vessel; "Shit shields at maximum" and the question is deflected.

" The real question is ....."; no dear, the real question is the one you've just been asked not the one you've stayed up all night trying to rehearse.

It would appear that Damian Green was arrested on suspicion of "conspiring to commit misconduct in a public office" and "aiding and abetting, counselling or procuring misconduct in a public office".

Well now...isn't that a nipple pincher? The police might as well go and arrest the majority of the Government, especially Mandelson; one can perhaps see the residue of his pink poison stuck to this event. He's enough to make Dame Crusty want to turn straight!!

If any politician of any colour or persuasion can manage to obtain information from a whistleblowing source which contradicts the spin and bollocks spouted forth by our Government and it does not jeopardise national security, then as a British subject I DEMAND that those politicians be allowed to use it. It is their Parliamentary right and duty to hold the Government of the day to account.

Mr Green, you have Dame Crusty's support and I would hope the support of my Crustettes.

  1. Now, now, now Crusty. Isn't politics a step too far for a blog such as this? Surely the beauty of such a blog is that you peak at the X Factor and avoid the choppy and stinky waters of the real world?
