'Potential victims'

According to the mail, certain alleged victims of Sir Edward Heath have already discussed making compensation claims for sexual abuse .. '

Not exactly supportive for the 'alleged victims' or the Police it goes on 

 That would be their chief constable's 'report' allegedly due out in June. It might be next June now given that the bloke in charge of the actual investigation has, thrown a sickie ! 

 The telegraph ups the ante - anti-investigation stance, a 'source' suggesting the negative impact that this pesky 'investigation' might be having on real police work

Are ordinary Policemen getting sick of having to believe any old shit because of policies foisted on them by their superiors and their superiors at Fleet Street ? Who the hell knows. One thing's for sure, the paedo label is still being affixed to folk both living and dead, no trial or investigation necessary !

 In August 2015 the cops were considering just a 'limited inquiry' into the claims made against Heath believing it would give 'Potential victims validation more quickly than a full investigation' Bit like that 'closure' thing they used as an excuse to NOT investigate the Savile claims. 

Save money, pay compensation or do it properly. The telegraph were seemingly able to draw from a pool of 'sources' for their material

Sean should get Full pay for six months maybe longer ! Haven't noticed any adverts in the press offering cash for Heath stories, like they did with Savile, so who knows - maybe Sir Edward's old home will be safe.

Ted Heath

I no longer have to explain HOW, Sir Jimmy was stitched up. The mail on Sunday and their chums have done it for me, with just one headline

That was published online last night and by this morning 

 Goodness gracious -  a 'police chief' is 'convinced the allegations are "120% genuine", or, so 'the mail on Sunday can reveal' 

Problem being, they have revealed nothing of the sort. They have NO direct official quotes from Wiltshire Police - but, of course one has to read the darned thing in order to know that ! I did, but I guess the world's media don't have to bother. Why let your brain get in the way of a good story ? 

One doesn't even need to read the whole thing - just four paragraphs in 

Obviously, someone cannot wait until June 

You see, they have been after Heath for some time. Friends and admirer's of the dead ex-prime minister have put up a semi-spirited defence. But, all such defences now pale into insignificance, why ? Well, because he could drive, that's why !

 'Detectives' ? Note, they do not reveal who these sources are. One can easily confirm whether someone ever held a drivers license - the DVLA could have saved the hack a few minutes research in photo archives but facts are not what these guys are after is it ? 

It goes on and on. We've heard it all before, as I said, I no longer have to bother trying to explain, to someone sensible, how they stitched Jimmy up. 

'Astonishingly' for me, is the fact that everyone appears to accept that Chief Constable Veale has actually said this. No one can have any illusions that Wiltshire Police have an agenda 

 From the independent in December

But, like the responsible blogger I am I thought I'd check with Wiltshire Police myself to see what official statements have or haven't been made. Here's their latest 'update' 

 Of course, the mail on Sunday has form when it comes to crackpot 'leaked confidential' reports.Again, from December 2016

Back to today or October 2012 if you like 

 BUT, and here's a big question folks - will they get away with this. Will enough people buy this bullshit like they did with Savile ? Safety in numbers as they say ! Let's see how many more complainants come forward. In the meantime, allow those of us who give a shit, to speak up for Justice. Justice for ALL, not just ex-prime ministers, but for everyone. And I hate to say I told you so, but I did, didn't I ?

Shiner's - unhappy people

Miracles happen - dishonest solicitors get caught out. This one's a gem 
 Shiner put innocent men through hell for TEN YEARS 

 Ten years ? That's more than half the time Yewtree's been going on. Now, I'm not going into the history of what wiki refers to as the Iraq Prison abuse scandals - you can read the background - going all the way back to 2003 here

No, my interest in the case lies in the tactics employed by law firms who appear to latch onto what may well be, a perfectly a legitimate public interest story and turn it into something else. A profit-making something else for them, no less !

The tabloid press did what the tabloid press generally do at the first sign of a good story. They didn't get away with it though did they. One famous head rolled fairly quickly 


 Sir Michael had issued the magic words if proven, and, within a day, they were dis-proven. The Press can work fast when it is told to ! 

200 military folk were called to give evidence at the first (?) public inquiry into the allegations in 2013

Was the MOD slow to investigate ? The press public's interest was at an all time high by now. What the hell were these important powerful folks hiding ? The various human rights and public interest lawyers will find out, that's for sure !! 

 This is January 12th 2014 - the original few claims have become hundreds. But the MOD weren't buying it.

The Sheer scale and seriousness of the allegations ...

 The sheer scale and seriousness of the allegations passes the "gravity" threshold to justify an investigation, according to the complaint. It continues "those who bear the greatest responsibility" for alleged war crimes "include individuals at the highest levels" of the British Army and political system. It

Blimey, this is serious ! Some pretty powerful folk are being accused in covering up war crimes. It's no longer just a few expendable soldiers who'd risked their lives fighting in some far-away hell hole. 

And then, it went tits-up for the campaigners and more importantly for me, the lawyers ! 


This is how Leigh Day solicitors still presents itself today online

Represented soldiers and civilians ? Isn't that those in the trade call, a conflict of interest ? But, some one has to stick up for these folk. Even those who are guilty are entitled to a defence 

Sounds a tad familiar does it not guys and gals ? How strange that the argument about numbers, in these cases can be used bth ways. In The Savile case, high numbers denote authenticity, here, it raises suspicions ! Oh well, there's a story to be had out of the real victims now ! LOL, as we say in the trade ! You can always rely on the mail
