UK Torture Memos

Mr Straw continues to lie about extraodinary rendition. He is becoming as much a joke as Mr Blair in the integrity stakes.
Here I link to the evidence from Craig Murray, our one-time ambassador, of our complicity in torture.

It is the end of the year. This morning I received my New Labour e-mail propaganda for 2006. It offers us "The Respect agenda."

Once we had things you could respect in England. Free speech, parliamentary democracy, habeas corpus, human rights, justice before the law. These things held the respect of the world. We were admired, respected, copied, envied. It is hard to argue that any of those things still survive. Bush and Blair destoyed what they purported to be fighting for.

If it were not for changes to the law brought about by joining the EU, we would be helplessly under the control of this tyrant.

What will 2006 bring?

Will it be impeachment for these western tyrants? Or will the last shreds of freedom and dignity be swept away
with the state terrorists having won the battle against freedom and democracy.

What was the high point of your year Mr Blair?
Was it arresting someone for reading out the names of the Iraq dead in your hearing?
Or was it the manhandling and arrest of an octogenarian labour party member for heckling at your party conference?
I will continue to remind you of the thousands of people who have died and will die next year from your invasion of and control over a country which offered no threat to any Englishman.


UK Torture Memos: "Craig Murray says:
In March 2003 I was summoned back to London from Tashkent specifically for a meeting at which I was told to stop protesting. I was told specifically that it was perfectly legal for us to obtain and to use intelligence from the Uzbek torture chambers.

After this meeting Sir Michael Wood, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office's legal adviser, wrote to confirm this position. This minute from Michael Wood is perhaps the most important document that has become public about extraordinary rendition. It is irrefutable evidence of the government's use of torture material, and that I was attempting to stop it. It is no wonder that the government is trying to suppress this."

"If it were not for changes to the law brought about by joining the EU, we would be helplessly under the control of this tyrant."

Are you serious? Who do you think it is who has created all these lovely mechanisms of control for us? Who the hell do you think ordered us to begin the process of removing parliamentary democracy and the replacement of habeas corpus with the Napoleonic code of Corpus Juris?

Let me give you a quick lesson in reality old boy. 80% of our laws are made in Brussels. The committee which 'scrutinises' them now meets in secret and often doesnt do their scrutinising until after the laws are already in place.

The European Arrest Warrant introduced by the EU enables a judge in a foreign country to order your arrest for something which isnt even a crime in Britain and they WILL SHIP YOU OFF WITHOUT EVEN CHECKING THE EVIDENCE. All they need do is establish your identity. How's that for 'extraordinary rendition', or dos it only count if tose oh so evil yanks do it?

Oh, and 90 Days? Forget 90 Days - under these Warrants you can go nine months before they even need charge you with anything.

You want to talk about tyrants? The original draft of the Constitution stated that the EU need not take any notice of its own Human Rights legislation if it would affect its 'exclusive competences'. The UKIP MEPs that put the document out there in the open caused such an outcry that the passages were quietly removed from the second draft.

I could say far more to explain this to you, but I cant be bothered. How the EU, who have created Europol, the Police Force who legally cannot ever be investigated or prosecuted for anything they do in pursuit of their duties can be seen as a beacon for Human Rights is beyond me. But then, I'm not a Leftie.

welcome dangerously subversive dad. thank you for your comments on the EU.
Tony Blair always said they were dangerous. This sounds very scary though.

You really should do some research on this - i mean your opinions on things like 9/11 I have to say I 1000% disagree with but you seem to have the right ends in mind even if you and I would totally disagree about who the enemy is.
