Lord Janner: Home Searched.


Really good to read that Lord Janner has NOT been arrested.

Otherwise I’d be in contempt of court for writing this. Ho hum- ‘swings and roundabouts’

In 1991, after accusing LORD/MP Greville Janner of paedophilic behaviour with a teenager, Beck was arrested and charged with the sexual and physical abuse of children in his care over a thirteen-year period.
At his trial Beck stated that: – “One child has been buggered and abused for two solid years by Greville Janner“.
Immediately after this, Janner who just happens to be, ironically, a long time member of the boy scouts association, and Sir David Napley, his solicitor, went to Police headquarters in Leicester. Whereupon, the following statement was issued:

“We have advised Mr. Janner that he is prevented from making any statement at this stage”.

Shortly afterwards, the Director of Public Prosecutions, Alan Green, let it be known that “for lack of evidence”, Janner would not be prosecuted, even though P, who was just thirteen when he and Janner first met, was able to describe Janner‘s home, the hotel rooms they had shared, and Janner’s habits and person in detail.

The Director of Public Prosecutions, himself, was arrested for kerb-crawling in Kings Cross a little while later.<


Today’s story

    The Judge Jowett in R v Beck tried to prevent the press from naming Janner.
    To their credit some members of the press had the decision judicially reviewed and reversed.

  3. zero responses re Janner. See, eveb here people won’r comment, frightened of being called an anti semite

    • Sabre

      Your only comment seems to be that no one seems to be commenting.
      Don’t be shy.

      Whether he is Jewish or not is immaterial, I think I speak for most of the people on this blog when I suggest that if you’ve got a far right-wing, fascist, bigoted agenda please take it elsewhere.

      • Sabre

        Unfortunately Cheryl the whole point is that it isn’t immaterial !
        We all know that some abusers are white working class manual workers,
        some are white middle class professionals, some are peers of the realm that trace their ancestry back to William the Conqueror.

        Some are muslim, some include gangs of young black “gangstas” that share their “links” amongst each other without a care for the wishes feelings or well being of the unfortunate “links”.
        Some are Jewish, working in shops, unemployed, middle class professionals, some are powerful and influential.

        The problem seems to be that:
        a) The Authorities don’t appear to be overly stressed about the problem regardless of the race/creed/colour/age/sexuality of the VICTIMS.

        b) When problems do come to light the Authorities, heeding the chattering classes on the one hand and protecting their own arses on the other, differentiate when it comes to the possible fallout as to how to tackle ( read ignore) the problem.

        Should the alleged miscreants include members of the aristocracy, cabinet ministers, high officials of supra national organisations or strategically important banks or corporates then much tidying up is done if at all possible.

        Should the alleged miscreants include those that the security services need a “grip” on, it would appear that a decision is made based on the value of tidying up or cutting losses blowing the relevant “scheme” and damage limitation.

        Should the alleged miscreants be able to rely on the chattering classes coming to their aid screaming victimisation based on race/creed/colour/sexuality/culture, we tend to see little or no action.
        The LibLabCon party also has an interest in seeing that any groups that could possibly be seen as “alien” have minimal visibility in these areas lest the ghastly reactionary hoi polloi start to over generalise and call for an end to immigration and asylum, we all know where that leads to, no excess unemployment keeping wages down, the corporate sponsors are not keen on that.

        Should the miscreant be a white working class unemployed dustman with no apparent links to any of the groups that prove problematic to tackle with a couple of local victims then Mr Plod arrests said miscreant and puts him before the local Magistrate where he is given a fine and or 6 months and asked nicely to cease and desist.

        Cheryl, how many convictions have been recorded in this country relating to the female genital mutilation of baby girls ?

      • Cheryl

        Tbh Sabre I don’t know how many convictions there have been of those who cause the genital mutilation of female children – although I do know that it is illegal under British law. If I’m guessing right, what you are arguing is that the police are afraid to prosecute some minority groups for fear of being seen as politically incorrect? Plus, you also believe that richer people get preferential treatment before the law – i.e. one law for us another law for them etc. I wouldn’t know about that – although the wealthy are obviously more advantaged to the rest of us as they have the necessary capital to sue for slanderous accusations etc.

        As far as I’m concerned everyone should be treated equally before the law. I think part of the problem is though, that when far right elements of the tabloid press get hold of stories of paedophile rings that happen to be Asian and Muslim or individuals who happen to be Jewish they exploit this to incite hatred against these groups so that they can sell papers. There’s a danger here that they can put the majority of the innocent members of these communities at risk of violence through press misinformation, sensationalizing and scapegoating.

      • Sabre

        Couldn’t agree more re all should be treated equally before the law, alas, it’s an aspiration rather than an observed fact.
        I dispute that the MSM has any far-right elements, I assume that you are referring to the likes of The Daily Mail?
        Not unlike our 3 Party = 1 Party LibLabCon political system we have a motley bunch of Papers and Broadcast Media that essentially stream the same message to more or less discerning groups of the population.

        The MSM like the Political Establishment are all Globalist neo-liberal laissez-faire capitalists.
        The rhetorical playing to the gallery of some papers is nothing more than the provision of a safety valve for the use of the great unwashed.
        If the Daily Mail and The Sun didn’t pretend to ‘feel the pain’ of their readers re Immigration and other sensitive subjects they run the risk that the readers might seek the comforting embrace of real Far-Right or Far-Left papers and organisations.

        The MSM seem to be regarded by too many as mere observers and reporters of events, rather than very real players in the game.

        Tony Blair would have a monthly audience with the Head of State, HM Queen, however, he granted an audience to Rupert (Rupert is more likely to have been the one granting the audience !) on a more regular basis.

        There is a “lady” currently before the courts that seems to have been just as close to our current “dear leader”, not to mention “dear leaders” ex aide-de-camp

        The press and broadcast rarely if ever demonise any minority group, herding the masses in to appropriate pro and fake anti immigration
        fake anti euro groups is a stategy, they all point out that crime, terrorism, grooming, benefit cheating etc is spread across all communities, they generally as an aside add that the greatest offenders are the white host community (they never bother giving pro rata statistics).

        They always call for communities to come together in the wake of terrorism or the discovery of grooming or a racist murder of a white kid, however , there is much wailing and gnashing of teeth if a white nutter blows something up or kills a member of a recognised minority.

        Remember that it was the “Racist Far Right Daily Mail” that used its power to label those suspected of Stephen Lawrence’s murder as murderers before being convicted !

        None of us even remember the names of white kids murdered by racists.

        here we go, criticize a Jew and it’s right wing, fascist etc etc. The usual diatribe

  4. If, and I say ” if ” Janner is guilty, he’ll still get off. No way will they arrest one of the Jewish deputies.
