MoDPensions.com only tells one story that is representative of how many servicemen???
The Committee on Standards in Public Service thinks that everything is hunky dory, but does invite the general public to provide input. The Nolan principles that public servants should act on are: Selflessness, Integrity, Objectivity, Accountability, Openness, Honesty, Leadership.
If all that was operational, I wouldn’t have to publish most of my websites for Victims of Fraud! I wouldn’t have had to send this email either:
Dear Sir Christopher
Re: Ethics and Best practice – what works?
It is with great pleasure that I read about your invitation to the public to express views and experiences regarding Ethics and Best practice and learned about the seven principles Selflessness – Integrity - Objectivity - Accountability – Openness – Honesty – Leadership. I’m afraid they make me laugh, given my experiences…

This excellent news came as a text message from journalist Tony Gosling: John McDonnell MP has tabled an Early Day Motion about the abuse of power by the City of London Corporation:
That this House congratulates the Bureau of Investigative Journalism for its thorough research in exposing the abuse of power by the City of London Corporation in using its public resources in a multi-million pound lobbying exercise to distort Government policies, in particular its tax regime, in the interests of the banks and finance houses that control the City Corporation through its undemocratic electoral system based on the business vote; and calls on the Government to instigate an urgent independent inquiry into the role and influence of the City Corporation with the aim of bringing forward proposals for its abolition.
Everybody who knows that and how we’ve been trying to redress the imbalance between Westminster and the City since 1998 will know that this brings a smile on my face!
What can you do? Ask your MP to sign the EDM by using WriteToThem.
And while you’re emailing your MP, check whether they are one of the 91 MPs who signed the request for a Royal Commission on Policing.

Ken Clarke says decision to allow sentencing to be televised will increase public confidence in justice system
Well, given the comments by petition signers, it seems to take much more than televising summaries to increase public confidence in the justice system. Please check
- a one-page news release
- an eight-page executive summary
- and a 47-page full report produced from comments by signers of the petition Free WWII Veteran Norman Scarth from Leeds Prison

The two gagging orders, that I have received against “The Media & Others” by two local Councils, are in the collection that John Hemming MP is putting before the Justice Committee for further investigation.
“What is clear,” he said, “is that almost all of the super and hyper injunctions have no public judgment. That means that they are not compliant with the rules for a fair trial.
New type of injunction – the Quaeroinjunction
Mr Hemming has also revealed a new type of injunction against investigative journalism.
“I have recently seen a gagging order that prevents people seeking information about a case from the parties. This goes a step further than preventing people speaking out against injustice. It also puts any investigative journalist at risk if they ask any questions of a victim of a potential miscarriage of justice.”
I call this the Quaeroinjunction, after the Latin work “to seek”. I don’t think this should be allowed in English courts. It has the effect of preventing journalists from speaking to people subject to this injunction without a risk of the journalist going to jail. That is a recipe for hiding miscarriages of justice.

The launch of Volume 2 of The Forensics of Legal Fraud and the frustration over my gag fuelled me to illustrate the need for a Public Inquiry into White Collar Crimes.
Now more than 500 page views have produced the first 25 signatures and fascinating comments.
They’ll be sent to the “targets”: the Lord Chancellor, the Business Minister and the Justice Select Committee, as soon as we have 200 signatures together.

My most recent experiences regarding the publication of supposed court documents against “The Media & Others” enraged me such that I am now looking for public support to get that Public Inquiry into White Collar Crimes going.
Imagine: a lawyer writes a “Reporting Restriction Order” that
- carries no signature
- appears never to have seen a court
- and has its own “terms of service”.
I.e. it’s not the COURT but the LAWYER who can serve the order – not on the web publisher – but on the web hosting company!
Of course, WordPress wouldn’t possibly question the validity or lawfulness of a document. So after deleting eight blog posts that related to The Stealing of Baby Harley, State Kidnapping and the State Stealing Children, I had to delete another post, relating to the same issue, but another Council and another lawyer using the same nasty ‘behind the back’ technique.
Enough is enough! Now I hope that you’ll add some signatures to our request for a Public Inquiry into White Collar Crimes, before I put it before the Lord Chancellor and the Business Minister.

This is the release about our meeting on the needs for a Public Inquiry into White Collar Crime (Tuesday, 25 January 2011, Committee Room 16).
I’m mailing it to my list as well as all MPs who’ve offered support. Maybe you can add your comment and forward it to your contacts?
And here is the link to the videos.

Videos of the meeting are now here.
I was VERY impressed by the MPs who gave us their support on the day:
- Nic Dakin, MP for Stanley Embling, was the first to arrive and the first to email this morning again: the Government plans a consultation for the Economic Crime Agency in Spring 2011!
- Austin Mitchell MP knows victim problems VERY well and laid out the strategy which I have discussed with him since:
- ask the Government to stage a Public Inquiry first
- if they don’t do it, let’s stage a “Shadow Inquiry”
- make a proposal for the Economic Crime Agency to be a regulator that is independent by cutting across key sectors, such insolvency practitioners, accountants, lawyers and court services
- ask the Justice and the Business Committee whether they’d look into white collar crime
- use some six key cases to demonstrate our grievances
- John Hemming, Lib Dem MP for Birmingham, gave us new avenues to pursue:
- John McDonnell, MP for Hayes and Harlington, gave us excellent support and demonstrated the experience that he has had and thus is fully behind us
- Alex Cunningham, MP for Stockton North, came to listen for a while
- Caroline Lucas, MP for Brighton, sent her researcher.
