Torture

with one comment

It seems we must endure it

South Shields MP and Foreign Secretary David Miliband along with Home Secretary Alan Johnson seems unable to guarantee that our security services are not accepting “evidence” from “helpful allies” who are using barbaric torture techniques to extract information. The credibility of information obtained using these methods must always be questioned, hence the call from a committee of MPs and peers for a full independent inquiry.

It seems, for now, that we must all endure the torture that a so called civilised nation is accepting uncivilised methods to build dubious cases against suspects in the TWAT (The War Against Terror).

To show that he is a man of honour and a civil person to boot, Miliband has decided to extend torture to the people of South Shields by inviting and joining the Lord High Almighty Everything Mandelson to give Labour’s annual “lecture to the people” on October 23rd. (probably at South Tyneside College, nope it’s at Harton Technology College). What did we do to deserve that?

To add insult to injury (and torture) David Lindsay tells us that Labour’s local council candidates are chosen not by the Constituency Labour Party, but by a cabal in Miliband’s London office.

This one I doubt – I suspect that Lindsay spilled this information whilst under extreme duress and torture poor lad!
