No, she should not have gone!

By Mike Cunningham On April 9th, 2014

Strangely enough, I do not believe that Maria Miller should have resigned. Most of the hue and cry which has pursued this lying, thieving and mendacious woman is based upon two inaccuracies.

The first is the simple fact that her thieving and lying behaviour was based upon rules of behaviour which have been replaced by much sterner equivalents. What she did was no more and no less than some 400 other MPs did before the eruption following the Telegraph’s expenses campaign. Where this thieving bitch went wrong was attempting to browbeat the Parliamentary Commissioner into either dropping or altering the terms of her investigation; and also attempting to place a block on the Telegraph reporter’s legitimate investigation by getting her advisor to quote Miller’s position as a Minister responsible for Press Regulation, to harass or bully the newspaper into dropping the investigation.

The second inaccuracy is of course that Miller was just doing her job by piloting through Parliament the disgusting and disgraceful Cameron-inspired Homosexual Marriage Act’s debasement of Marriage, and also controlling and pushing for the Leveson Royal Charter against Press Freedom; which pales into insignificance beside the fact that this Government, and the Labour bunch before it has given into Terrorism’s demands so that our own Queen Elizabeth was forced to accept into her presence one of the main leaders of SinnFeinIRA when Martin McGuiness sat down as a guest at Windsor Castle. A man who undoubtedly knew of the planned terror murder of her own dear Uncle, and the murder of well over two thousand other British subjects. So if he and his ilk can sit at Stormont and eat their fill at Windsor with Her Majesty, why should Miller have been eventually forced to fall on her sword to protect the Prime Minister, who was about to receive an almighty shellacking during Questions to the Prime Minister early this afternoon.

Update………..

Just noticed this photo in the Mail, and ATW readers are invited to provise the caption for Martin’s Moment!

  1. Been busy following this one on another blog, and I am so pleased to see that (probably) Dave has persuaded her to go. “Your party needs your resignation” he might have said..
    Main points for me,
    In effect she has been stealing from the taxpayer.
    The assumption seems to be that taxpayers’ money belongs to the government of the day, and if members take advantage of the trust placed in them by taxpayers aka voters that is their right.
    If people who aspire to public office become corrupted by the political party system then that system needs to be changed.
    The idea that we can vote governments out if we don’t like them is in part an illusion, because both major parties fundamentally operate in the same way there is no real difference.
    My wife was landed with a tax demand running into the hundreds after she retired from work, because the company accountant had unwittingly been overpaying her. We had to pay it back in instalments because the alternative could be a prison sentence. If we as ordinary citizens accept that we have to play by the rules, why should it be different for those who represent us?

    Whilst I disagree with the Gay Marriage thing, I don’t think her involvement in that has much to do with this, except perhaps as another example of governmental arrogance.

  2. Of course she should have gone! – if she had been half the person we had a right to expect in such a post, she would have done ‘what was right’, not ‘what she thought she could get away with!’.

    Tha our self-serving bunch of politicians think that because they change the rules, that makes their thievery all OK!

    Her off-hand, ‘so what!’ arrogant type of responses show that she is(was) the wrong person in the wrong job, and Cameron’s support for her shows that old saw to be true – ‘Birds of a feather stay together!’

    It seems that the days of poliicians et al taking any reponsibility for their personal, or their department’s actions are long gone, – and our trust and confidence in them with it!

  3. Birds of a feather ‘flock’ together. More onomatopoeic.

    The greatest trick the Devil ever played was to convince people he didn’t exist.

  5. Caption:
    David Cameron explaining to Enda Kenny that Martin would have come in uniform, but he has put a bit of weight on since his active service days…

  6. Cameron is saying,
    “Look I don’t care who you are, the sign in the window clearly says, ‘No Blacks, No Dogs, No Irish!'”

  7. Cameron has had a few too many glasses of champers, and he says to Kenny,

    “I say! You! Yes You! Irish chappie! Edna!”

    “It’s Enda, Cameron.”

    “Whatever, Edna! I’ll kick your spine up through the top of your head!”

    “Oh will ye now, Cameron?”

    “Yes, I jolly well will, Edna! You and you’re Paddy, Leprechaun friend here! Who is he anyway?”

    “That’s Martin McGuinness, Cameron.”

    “Well, Mr. Martin McGuinn…wait…Martin…THE Martin McGuinn…you mean the one from Shh…Shi…?”

    “Aye, Cameron, the very same…”

    “Ah. Umm. Yes. Wellwellwellwellwellwellwellwell! Martin! My old…erm…mucker! Jolly…ermm…frightfully nice to see you again, old top! How’s…ummm…Gerry?”

    “I’d just leave if I were you, Cameron.”

    “Eh? Yes! Yes! I’ll…ummm…I’ll..errr…I’ll just be toddling off over…ummm…over there…”

  8. Your first one was best Seimi.
    You know, I would have been far happier about all this if the terrible two had admitted their part in the killings and the bombings, made some kind of true and heartfelt apology and handed over the leadership to younger men not directly involved in the spilling of blood.
    I remain of the opinion that had the Republican movement been really popular and had a plan that would take forward everybody together, the ballot box would have shown it.

  9. Agit8ed – you do know that Sinn Féin are the largest Nationalist/Republican party in the north, don’t you?

  10. So are you saying all this spilt blood was inevitable?

  11. Eh? No, I’m referring to this:

    …had the Republican movement been really popular and had a plan that would take forward everybody together, the ballot box would have shown it.

    The ‘Republican plan’ has been popular enough to turn SF from a fringe political party to the largest Nationalist/Republican party in the north, and the second-largest party overall.

    As to the inevitability of spilt blood – in any conflict there will be blood shed. That doesn’t make it right. It just makes conflict wrong.

  12. “Look, Edna, if Ulster loyalists, English monarchists, even Her Majesty the Queen herself, love our Martin here, what problem can you as an Irish Republican have with him?

  13. Seimi –

    It’s nothing to do with any republican plan and everything to do with killing.

    Charles Powell was Blair’s chief negotiator prior to the Belfast Agreement. Powell admitted that Sinn Fein was promoted by London and Dublin to the exclusion of other nationalist groups. In his memoirs, Powell admitted that Seamus Mallon called him to ask why the SDLP was being frozen out of negotiations. Powell told him that “the SDLP’s problem is that it doesn’t have any guns”.

    Sinn Fein/IRA was always at the centre of negotiations, and came out of it well, simply because they’re killers.

  14. Sinn Fein/IRA was always at the centre of negotiations, and came out of it well, simply because they’re killers.

    They had something more important to bargain with: the preservation, escalation, or cessation of armed struggle. It’s basic power politics, and very much expected. Nothing strange about it. The idea that they were embraced ‘simply because they’re killers’ doesn’t make an ounce of sense.

    One thing I’ll say for Republican leaders is this: each and every one engaged in profound self-sacrifice for their beliefs: years in jail, on the run, on hunger strike, and in constant danger of being killed by the other side. I have a lot more respect for them than someone who bleats about their politics online but never gets off their arse to actually do anything (Hello Pete!).

  15. Petr Tarasov –

    Sin Fein/IRA is a movement stepped in the history of Marxist liberation. Hence they’re killers.

    I’m a libertarian, hence I don’t believe in initiating violence against anyone.

    Yes, Sinn Fein/IRA could bargain at the table while holding a gun. This is precisely what Powell admitted.

    Petr,
    I part agree with you, but then when we consider all the innocents who were blown up, murdered, frightened into collusion, kneecapped or received punishment beatings, that self sacrifice loses a lot of its significance.
    In a free society where elections and structures are in place so that our voices can be heard, I see no need for innocents to die. Want to fight? Do it face to face with those you consider your enemy.

  18. Petr – Self-sacrifice in a horrible cause is no virtue.

  19. Mahons – are you saying that the desire to see Ireland free from English rule is a ‘horrible cause’?

  20. Seimi – No. Self-sacrifice through horrible acts is no virtue would be closer to what I should have written.

  21. That’s much clearer. Cheers.

    O/T I sent an email out to my entire gmail address book there about an event this Saturday in Belfast, and it’s probably gone to 3 people here – David V, Troll and Phantom. Apologies guys. It’s an Irish language event in Belfast. I know Troll and phantom won’t be in attendance, but I’m sure David will be there to show his support! 😉

  22. no problem, wish I could attend

  23. Mahons – are you saying that the desire to see Ireland free from English rule is a ‘horrible cause’?

    I don’t think it was/is a horrible cause either.
    But if you wish to argue that the British were oppressive and cruel and you wish to be rid of them, that implies a higher notion of morality and freedom of choice.

    When the ballot box is there for people to express their aspirations, I fail to see how the bloody and callous methods used by Sinn Fein/IRA showed them in a better light than the people they wanted out. In fact I would also say that if this kind of violence can be proved to secure their goals, why ever give it up?
