When you can no longer trust Plod

This is another cautionary tale, after the first one of the day about the cover-up of the USS Fitzgerald crash perps.

The bottom line in that story was that people on the list of the vilified for the PCists were blamed and the true perps were not even mentioned – because they were of one of the favoured demographics.

One thing this is not is justice. You expect it in Russia but not in the US or Britain but in fact it is rife in the latter two. Here’s another:

The most interesting thing to happen in that six-month period was in January, when a retired police officer warned me that either the arresting sergeant, or one of his colleagues, was going to arrest me and charge me with something else. In his words, the police wanted to “make things difficult” for me. This warning actually came as a surprise, because I’d been noticing a huge improvement in the police’s attitude to the press around here, myself included. I took the warning on board though.

So, let’s jump forward to yesterday, 12 June 2018. There’s something rather important that I didn’t mention in my previous blog post, and I’m sure you’ll understand why.

We had a recording of the arrest.

The recording disproved pretty much everything the two police officers had written in their statements. It also caught the sergeant apparently boasting about how he’d planned the arrest in advance with someone in the Procurator Fiscal’s office, who had agreed to prosecute me.

The police force in this country with the worst reputation – internationally bad – was the West Midlands police but at least the innocent there were “likely lads” to a point. In the case of this man now, there’s nothing at all – they just took a set against him and this is very much shades of Tommy Robinson.

Is it the intention of Plod to turn over half the country against them? Is this part of the Plan?

They just fall into our lap

Remember the USS Fitzgerald collision with the Phillipines boat? And how certain officers took the brunt? Now this:

Hi, Stacy.

During the early weeks after the USS Fitzgerald was speared by a lumbering Philippine container ship, it was noteworthy that the captain and a couple of admirals were publicly named, but not the actual officer in charge, the officer of the deck. (OOD) The other person who should have kept the Fitz out of trouble is the person in charge of the combat information center, the Tactical Action Officer. That individual is supposed to be monitoring the combat radar, which can detect a swimmer at a distance of two miles.

Not until a year later, when the final reports are made public and the guilty parties have been court-martialed, does the truth come out. The OOD was named Sarah, and the Tactical Action Officer was named Natalie, and they weren’t speaking to each other!!! The Tactical Action Officer would normally be in near constant communication with the OOD, but there is no record of any communication between them that entire shift!

What is sticking out like a sore thumb is that there has been a cover-up here, bad for the Narrative and members of the hated demographic, the white male, has gone down while the real perps got away with it.

Why? Why, in our society, do women and Muslims continue to get away with things scot free?

Then we get onto my constant theme here about women’s competence – they should not be in charge of anything involving life and limb.

England form guide

[Quiz, such as it is, will be tomorrow evening at this time.]


#  England are good at standing on one leg.

#  Southgate’s not managed a league team – that’s good.

#  Fewer prima donnas – no Rooneys, Lampards, Terrys, Nevilles.

#  “Cut an impressive figure in his final pre-match briefing, hitting the right notes in his call for “brave, bold attacking football””

#  England’s sometimes done all right early.

#  “Southgate, a civilised human being with a touch of steel many still do not recognise.”

#  Southgate knows not to park the bus.

#  Young group, “not as scarred” [Lampard says]. Triumph of hope over experience.


#  “If last night at the stadium was anything to go by, these midges are going to make it an extremely uncomfortable for everyone there. The stadium is right next to the Volga River, I am told it is the breeding season for them..that is where they breed and they seem to have bred well…there are billions of them.”

#  England history against lesser teams, particularly as this lot don’t seem too bad within the African competition.

#  Young group, about to make the same errors as in the past. Triumph of experience over hope.


#  Kane on song. Will Kane be able to make it happen?

#  Cahill in defence.

Monday too

4. Freeman Dyson:

But what he has become most known for in the last decade is his ability to uphold his heretical views on climate change. His belief that climate change is happening yet we do not have an idea as to why or how has irritated the scientific community to no end.

“The important invention in a way for the human species was grandparents. Grandparents were the beginning of culture when we could sit around the cave fire and the grandparents would sing songs to the children and the parents would be out hunting so having three generations was what made us what we are.”
