It seems that privatisation is unlike the entrepreneur who builds up a business on quality and service and competes in a open market. Privatisation on the other hand, is the purchase of state assets to make a a quick killing and these firms usually do not act in the open market, and in many cases rely upon public subsidies to boost their profits.

I am reblogging this from the site of Jerry Hayes, a former Tory MP and practising criminal barrister. He is highlighting the dangers of miscarriages of justice since the Forensic Science Service was privatised by David Cameron because private companies are cutting corners and not doing a proper job. The person here could have been imprisoned for seven years as a result of their negligence.
THE SCANDAL THAT UNDERMINES OUR ONCE GREAT SYSTEM OF JUSTICE
10 May 2017 at 07:09
I never blog on cases, but today I must break my rule. Yesterday I discovered a scandalous state of affairs which could have led to an innocent man going to jail for a substantial period of time. I will not name the defendant nor the court for obvious reasons. In forty years…

It is also extremely arrogant to say that only lawyers have the intelligence to chair inquiries. On that basis the Hillsborough inquiry would never have happened – and no one denies that has been a success. Maybe that was why it was a success not having a Judge in the chair.
Why people look up to Judges is beyond me. I give an example below:
A company director of a small flat maintenance company defrauded the company of over £30,000, of which £16,00 he admitted he had taking for personal use. Considering that the flats owners where mainly pensioners and disabled people one would expect a sentence to fit the crime. The sentencing was two years probation and a repayment of £1 as he claimed he did not have any asserts. The Judge at the ending of the sentencing made a almost flippant remark. He told the guilty man that if he won the lottery he would have to pay it back. So the victims of this crime received a £1 while the fraudster walked away with thousands. Then add the cost of police time and court costs this judgement was almost bizarre. Maybe £16,00 is nothing to the Judge considering his salary, but to a group of pensioners and disabled people it was their funds to maintain their building. JUDGES , sadly out of touch with the real world.

On May 3 a final decision was made by Alexis Jay, the chair of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse not to hold a preliminary hearing into whether there should be inquiry into Lord Janner and Leicestershire institutions of allegations of child sexual abuse.
His son and his two sisters who had already had a meeting to press the case for such a preliminary hearing were understandably unhappy. They believe their father is innocent and just the subject of an historic witch hunt and no one needs to look into it.
And it is now clear that at some suitable date there will such an inquiry so long as it does not prejudice any other investigations still under way..
Daniel Janner decided to write an article for The Times denouncing the decision and protesting again that his father was…

Another insight into how paedophilia was used to control and corrupt the body politic
I rarely get the chance to listen to radio shows or watch videos, however this is one I have listened to and recommend it to others.
Barrie Trower interviewed young offenders in 1967-78 abused by VIP’s as part of his job to identify powerful people who may be subject to blackmail by the KGB. There were about 20 people who did what he did.
Barrie says that the vast majority of high level paedophiles were from Eton, Harrow, Oxford, Cambridge and Freemasons
Richie Allen with Barrie Trower “I Interviewed Young Offenders In The 60’s/70’s Who Were Abused By VIP Politicians.” 
He does say that paedophiles always stayed in power see c.22 mins
He thought of 3 scenarios why this should be so, which appeared to be
1. They were kept in place to identify any KGB spies trying to blackmail them
2. Blackmailed by MI5 for more…

On the very, very last day of Parliament John Bercow, the Speaker, who faces the prospect of a contested General Election ( breaking normal precedent) announced some £20,000 in donations from some very surprising and controversial sources.
Released the day Parliament was dissolved it was revealed the music impresario Lord Levy – who infamously and in his view unjustly got involved in the ” Cash for Honours” scandal has given a £5000 donation to John Bercow which presumably will go towards his election campaign.
Lord Levy, well known as Tony Blair’s tennis partner and New Labour’s chief fund raiser and at one stage close confidant of the former Labour PM, was arrested but never charged over the scandal which suggested that the party was soliciting donations with the hint of possible peerages for the party backers. The furore that followed led to a breach…

I hope this is not another story that after the election has no substance.
Reports are beginning to emerge from multiple sources suggesting that Mrs May is under investigation by the Property and Ethics group of the Cabinet Office in connection with an alleged failure to declare an enormous conflict of interest on Brexit related to profits of billions of pounds said to have been made by her husband’s investment-banking company in Brexit-related activities, as these tweets by political commentators suggest:

Source: THE BUSINESS OF MURDER
Having researched abuse cases, I have always wondered about the number of deaths either before and after the trial. Brings to mind the saying “Dead Men Tell No Lies”
What mystifies me is the British approach to money and child protection. In the former, if you worked in a Bank and stole money you will be unlikely to find another job in banking. But, if you work in child care and sexually abuse the children under your care, your Boss will cover it up and send you elsewhere. SO HERE WE HAVE BRITISH VALUES, MONEY IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN CHILDREN.

One of the successes of the Met Police investigation into the notorious Elm Guest House in Barnes was the arrest and conviction of a Roman Catholic priest Anthony McSweeney who was jailed for three years in 2015 for sexually abusing a teenager and making indecent images of children.
The inquiry into Elm Guest House led the police to focus on a Richmond Council children’s home – long since closed – called Grafton Close which at the time was run by a friend of the priest, John Stingemore, who would have been tried alongside him at Southwark Crown Court if he had not died just before the trial.
The allegation that boys were taken by Stingemore to Elm Guest House were never tested in court – though the CPS agreed a charge should be made – because of Stingemore’s death.
But the court heard that McSweeney and…

The independent inquiry into child sexual abuse has decided to go ahead with a wide ranging inquiry into allegations that the late Greville Janner was involved in child sexual abuse and whether the Labour Party, the intelligence services, Parliament and government departments could have been involved in a cover up.
The decision, announced on the inquiry’s website, comes despite strong objections from Lord Janner’s family and a plea from retired Assistant Chief Constable Tony Butler, from Leicestershire Police to halt investigations immediately.
The terms of the inquiry are set out in a full statement from Alexis Jay, chair of the inquiry here but the full terms are worth repeating in full.
” 1. The Inquiry will investigate institutional responses to allegations of child sexual abuse involving the late Lord Janner of Braunstone QC (“Lord Janner”).
2. In particular, the Inquiry will consider
2.1. the adequacy…
