Maria Miller: The CONservative fraudster

Conservative politician Maria Miller, 50, has been the focus of recent media controversy over the past couple of weeks. After secretly trying to make further, newer restrictions on the fabric of a free press unclouded by disingenuous laws restricting reporting, Miller was found to be scandalous. Her crime was that of abusing the British taxpayer among many others becoming the newest addition to the expenses scandal.

The Right Honourable Maria Miller

The Expenses Scandal, which occurred in 2009 was that of a number of politicians, many senior, and mostly Conservatve (Tory) party MPs, seeing ministers fill in forms to claim expenses for items they bought. These ranged from the lowly 89p items to hundreds of thousands of pounds. Reclaimed and not paid from their own pay packets, the ministers were living it up. Then they were eventually caught by the national press, who all exposed the scandal.

Since then ministers have said to have been looking for a reason to control the press from their heavy reporting, often shaming the scandalous politicians rightfully on the front pages.

In 2012, after the phone hacking inquiry, a new Press Regulation report was established and finished after years of recommendations by Lord Justice Leveson, dubbed the Leveson Report. Since then ministers, especially Tory ones, to which all of the national press politically support except for two brands, (The Mirror and The Guardian) said they would never regulate the press. Shortly after, David Cameron, the leader of the Tories decided to revoke that pledge and clamp down on the press. Aiming to make the opposition leaders of the Labour and Liberal Democrats take the blame, the press were disgraced with the decision once it was decided they would place tougher attempts from self-regulation onto journalists.

Ministers were then said to look for tougher details in clamping down. Behind the scenes, Maria Miller, the newly appointed Culture, Media and Sport secretary (which has had a troublesome scandal involvement with every minister in the role since 2010) was allegedly acting in secret. Aiming to re-regulate the already regulated from Leveson reporting press, she is now seeking tougher restrictions to gag the media further. When also questioned by watchdog’s about her expenses abuse, Miller threatened them behind the scenes to keep them quiet. Aiming to shroud her details of scandalous lifestyle in secrecy even further, Miller is now using the preposterous excuse that she is being “witchunted” by the press out of revenge for the Leveson regulation. Miller, who is still seeking a second batch of regulation to this day, is now using this mantle to twist the screw into her favour as a victim. Anything that the press now writes, she will attempt to sully as uncredible and abusive, somewhat of an irony to Miller, who has acted out the exact double standard.

They often say, those who say something about someone is actually drawing on a reflection of themselves. This seems to be the case. Miller wasn’t finished there either. She continued to attack media outlets involving television news stations who were doing their journalistic job.

Shamed. Miller makes speedy getaway in car.

Miller had received numerous requests to stand down and leave parliamentary office for her scandal. She defiantly refused. Leader of the country David Cameron, her party leader also, said that Miller “had paid back the money” and is continuing to now “get on” with her job and shamefully excused her behaviour with the notion that we should “draw a line under it” in reference to the scandalous corruption on offer. Miller paid back a measly £6,000 which is practically pocket money to her. If any other lower class citizen did such scandal they would be fired and leave on no income. Instead, Miller, who earns a whopping £65,000 increased by 11% to £75,000 per annum by 2015 as a sitting MP, which makes her a somewhat of a millionaire, remains in the job. On Thursday 3 March, she issued a hurried, thirty second apology on the advice of someone who told her to. Her insincere apology was not of her own accord. The following week on Tuesday 8 March she wrote another note of her antics in her local paper. Miller, who decided to write it in her local paper rather than in public to the world, attempted to gain more support from a writing piece and pocketed even more cash.

Sadistic welfare minister and failed Tory leadership candidate Iain Duncan Smith was grilled on the same day. He advised Miller was being “witchunted” and dodged the question about conning the system. Duncan Smith, who inherited his fortunes through his family, including two homes, is responsible for viciously removing poor people with no money, job prospects or employability skills including sick and Paralympic athletes unfairly from the pocket money benefit aiming to help support people getting back to work or healthy. They earn around £70 every two weeks. Politicians earn £65,000 rising to £77,000 a year, not including expenses claims.

If a welfare claimant is “decided” ‘fit to work’ by the unjustifiable measures to remove people from welfare to get numbers down and label them as workshy as David Cameron called them all “workers and the shirkers” when many are ill or poor, they will be sanctioned, removed from benefits for three years and possibly face a prison sentence under a case of fraud. Politicians, however, are allowed to get back on with the job and say no more with a ‘slap on the wrist’ tender talking to. And they say totalitarianism is dead.

If Maria Miller had any self respect and humility she would step down, repay the thousands to millions owed and apologise properly on a nation TV stage with a sincere, and not pre-advised from PR friends choice in doing so. This will be the only way Miller may be able to ascertain any honour left in her disgraced run as Culture Secretary and an MP in general. She should stop attempting to blame the press for doing their job, something which Miller has failed to do herself. Trying to attack the press with further regulation would be a mistake and she should drop this. To make it clear, she should make a statement clarifying she will not be regulating the press and allow the Leveson Report to stand as the sole beneficiary to this ideal. If she continues to attack the press, this would be unwise. She will become exposed (through her own fault) of corruption. This is not a press being vengeful. This is their professional job and conduct to the sector respected. Why would she need to re-regulate it? It proves she has many more demons in her closet and could possibly be planning to claim on expenses once again without a second thought. She needs to take a step back and re-assess.

millerr

There is no way dithering weed David Cameron will sack her. The only reason she kept her job was because she is the second only woman in the Conservative Party alongside Theresa May, which neither female minister has shone a light on a glorious and dignified run in the cabinet positions they have held since 2010. They further taint the female position of politician. By choosing not to sack her, Cameron, who does not want to appear weak and keep his best friends in the jobs with him to his little fan club, who also protect his policies, instead disgraces the political spectrum as shameful. In doing so Cameron and the Tories are once again a corrupt bunch of totalitarian rulers who disgrace the halls of Westminster and all the great Politicians before them. How on Earth did it get to this? The electorate, or people who vote as it is commonly called, further see this insulting and untrustworthy to Politicians who fiddle the figures to own self gain.

All in all, any attempt to hide a secret will only ever become bigger and more explosive when the truth eventually outs, as it always does. To hide such details will only prompt journalists to expose the truth. This is not a witchunt. This is a journalist’s job. And if you chose to clamp down on their professional job description, even further since original press regulation, not only are the ministers destroying the job a journalist can do, they are also breaking their own law. At this point it should be the courts who may have to intervene on the politicians and have them overruled for corruption and disruption to the professional sector of a job, in this case journalism. The same applies to all positions in working sectors. Not even a politician is allowed to change a job description or remove them from the public sphere because politicians are childish babies that do not like to hear anything bad about them when they put their feet out of line. No one is above the law and it is a journalist’s job first and foremost to hold all to account, including ruling elites. This is a further endorsement to the electorate that the Democratic nation of Great Britain has been constantly turned into a totalitarian United Kingdom under far right wing extremism with nationalism as its key function.

Written as of 8th March 2014.

 

UPDATE from 9 March 2014

On Wednesday, 9 March 2014, Maria Miller chose to resign of her own accord. David Cameron today disgraced the Houses of Parliament further by continually choosing to attack opposition leader Ed Miliband where Miliband said it was “his job to sack ministers” should they break the law. Cameron traded vicious spats of assault claiming Miliband, just like the rest of the British public were, “jumping on a political bandwagon” in order to blame Labour once more for all of the Conservative scandals. This is the government in place. A corrupt, self serving, abusive batch of friends who then excuse their behaviour as justified. Anyone else is vilified and disgraced instead.

Once again, ruling elites prove they can get away with fraudulent and criminal activity. The average commoner, would serve years imprisonment and never likely to receive a respectful job title ever again.

The UK public believe Cameron has handled the crisis badly by 2/3 in an itvnews poll supported by Comres research. It also proved the public trust politicians less at 49% tied with behaving badly.

Cameron continues to defiantly disagree and argue that Miller had done absolutely nothing wrong. Morally wrong, the Conservatives are seen as a party that abuses, fiddles the details for themselves and smears opposition where possible. Anything they disagree with is decided and no responsibility is taken. This is another shameful disgrace that tarnishes the greatness of this beautiful country which is a big player in democratic rights, formerly known from 2010 as Great Britain.

saji

As of 10 March 2014, Sajid Javid was ushered into the position of Culture Secretary amid Miller’s resignation. Javid is a ‘working class’ politician who worked his way up, sources say. Of Pakistani origin and former Economy Secretary once again the Tory party have been accused of playing favourites with Cameron’s personal choices of loyalty to him. A poster boy to try to connect with voters as ‘ordinary’ and involved in the economy, many believe this is simply bureaucratic quota reaching. Cameron pledged since 2010 he would have 40% of female ministers which has monumentally failed.  Many still believe Javid is, as everyone before him including Miller and the also scandal ridden, now Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, as unqualified for the position. The general election, in May 2015, is where the Tories are focusing on gaining a ‘working class vote’ to be re-elected after a failed majority in 2010.

Miller is still not being placed into the criminal justice system to face charges of fraud highlighting that politicians can break the law under Her Majesty’s ‘Secret State’. Simply put, she got away with it. You wouldn’t. She had two homes, two children and a husband, who is a solicitor.

The Sun’s Bizarre end

Today is the day we mourn the death of The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column. In a truly bizarre move, the newspaper has rehired a new batch of showbiz wannabes. Two randoms who happen to be girls and smile awkwardly for a PR photo of profile raising with a terrible layout to mimic the new ‘head of showbiz’ glory hunter and cretinous hack Dan Wooton.

Image

After taking concepts and thought processes from this site, the founder, Rupert Murdoch has chosen to reward two unknown as well as his previous tragedy of Column Idol, where the contest, done in house and not advertised where the paper selects its own bias winner, has hit a brick wall. With no style, skill and to ‘get more women’ in the paper, male dominated, Bizarre proves to be a daft move in which Murdoch, who loves to steal details from this site and fail to reward, of which this writer would have made a glorious reputation for your failing tabloid, has given a greenlight to.

Image

A supporting cast also prop up the team with three other randoms. Previous head Gordon Smart was shifted to the Scottish Sun as Editor. Dan Wooton side-lined him as ‘head of showbiz.’ Many believe this decision is clearly also copying the infamous 3am girls. The two girls, who will be prone to copy and pasting to create their stories, have added little impact to the job. Their first spread featured a PR prone Cheryl Cole giving a thumbs up. One Direction wrote on pieces of paper to ensure good press with the girls. The girls shared a photo of themselves with bizarre favourite Rita Ora. Anything for a photo op and self-portrayal, aye? Ground-breaking journalism at its finest. Leader of the Conservative (Tory) Party, David Cameron controls all the newspapers in Britain except for two. Those in charge of are The Sun and Sun on Sunday, The Daily Star and Star on Sunday, Daily Express and Sunday Express, The Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday, The Times and Sunday Times, The Independent, Independent on Sunday and the i and the Daily Telegraph and Sunday Telegraph as well as the Financial Times.

Papers not included are The Mirror and Sunday Mirror and The Guardian and The Observer.

The paper is said to be constantly “backwards” and “full of trash” to readers commenting anonymously. Journalism is truly dying a painful death. But it’s okay. Once the fourth estate journalism crumbles without my involvement in print, yet stolen stories all over the press in every paper, the fifth estate journalism will evolve, and I will be in the centre of it all. Only question is, how much shutting out abuse will cause you to be against us than with us? It’s up to you to continue to make the wrong decisions, or be a businessman. Good luck national Press. 

The defamation of a journalist

With the recent democratic free speech laws up in the air in Great Britain, politicians and security agents are now working together to defame journalism.

The case of David Miranda, partner of the journalist Glenn Greenwald, who revealed the Edward Snowden leaks in The Guardian newspaper, was detained under section 7 of the terrorism act as he was boarding a flight to his home in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

‘Terrorist’ David Miranda

British government and the Home Office were said to have given the green light to arrest Mr. Miranda knowing full well he was not a terrorist. His crime? He had hold of some Snowden documents.

Great Britain, which is now using the only American excuse of “national security” to apprehend someone gave a “heads up” to NSA while David Cameron, who claimed we live in a Democracy, and Home Secretary Theresa May had no involvement they claim, but later revealed they were informed. Cameron, on his third holiday in recent months in Cornwall, gave the order, allegedly. Two GCHQ officials watched as media files where destroyed by the Guardian under an order from government and police.

Cameron was said to be –

  • David Cameron ‘kept abreast’ of detention of David Miranda, sources say
  • Theresa May briefed because police feared he carried ‘stolen information’
  • Brazilian was taken into custody by officials as he passed through Heathrow
  • U.S. President Barack Obama was also given ‘heads-up’ before he was taken
  • Scotland Yard said detention was ‘legally and procedurally sound’
  • The 28-year-old was held while on way home to Rio de Janeiro from Berlin
  • Mr Miranda is to launch a civil action over his detention
  • London agents took his drives, a computer – and even a video game
  • Guardian editor claims British agents entered newspaper’s London office

So what does this do for the sector of Journalism?

The statement from arresting officials of Miranda, a freelance journalist, claimed he was doing journalistic work but not a journalist in order to defame him to send a message of fear to all journalists in line with the government.

Miranda was held for 9 hours under the Terrorism Act. Lord Falconer, former British lord chancellor who helped bring in the Terrorism Act 2000 has added “this was not what the law was intended for.”

Home Secretary Theresa May

Every newspaper has a political agenda. All newspapers in Great Britain, except for the Guardian (Liberal) and the Daily Mirror (Labour) support the Conservative Party and carefully framework propaganda in their favour to win general elections.

David Cameron, Conservative, cannot control those two papers and therefore used regulation or law to clamp down and pressurise the reporting. Now, Cameron, who is trying to mimic Barack Obama, who is the most popular person in the world, hopes crawling to American agencies will help strengthen their bond.

Britain is said to spy on American citizens and America spies on Britain and both feed the information back to one another as they cannot spy on each other.

obama

Under Pressure.

NSA is also said to be working with data collection from Google and Apple.

By using spying methods and fear to collect information has a damning effect on the business of journalism and classing someone as not a journalist because they are not at a working title is shameful. Defaming journo’s based on political ideology and agenda’s to win elections is just as corrupt as Robert Mugabe, the recent Egyptian uprising and the claims of Vladimir Putin fixing elections.

Without journalists to report on the real issues and secrets to allow politicians to craft laws to slam them down and hide their corruption is nowhere near a democracy and ever closer to a Fascist state. After the Snowden files were destroy by police, The Guardian newspaper was dictated not to report anymore stories that could “endanger lives under national security.” This should also tell us something sinister. Just how damning and intrusive was the spying carried out by NSA on worldwide nations.

Sun kissed Cameron

Currently, in a totalitarian state, filled with surveillance and political scandal, journalists are needed more than ever. The defaming of someone not at a working title is disgusting seeing as the politicians and industry make it very difficult to hire someone in the field because they need personal lapdogs to win elections with favourable stories and abuse of the opposition, which also cripples the notion of journalism.

gestapo80

Politicians should be working in unison with journalists allowing them to report stories as is their job and will move the economy forward. Instead the image presented is a personal hitman in disguise, especially after police corruption was exposed, including stealing identities of dead children.

The Gestapo, Hitler’s personal army invaded ordinary citizens homes and premises in secret, at night to abuse, remove and contain secrets nearing the Second World War.

According to historian Rupert Butler, “From its creation in 1933 until its death in May 1945, anyone living in Nazi controlled territory lived in fear of a visit from the Gestapo…” (Source: WIkipedia)

Britain continues to remain broken and never independent.

The Week in Media, The Sun, Camden Journal and Evening Standard

Every week we plan to have a brief perusal of the media, mostly newspapers, that have been making the stories, and actually asking if this is really journalism at its finest, for you, the very public it intends to serve. Going through with a fine toothcomb to what consists of reality and whether newspaper hacks are inadequate in gauging public opinion and newsworthy topics, or whether it’s just utter tosh to help politicians in their idealistic and segregated view of what the real world is, to which the people they claim to serve consist. This week’s offerings mostly come from the glorious ball in the sky as our shining beacon of light, The Sun. However this week, we’ve spoiled you with more than one day!

Newspapers

Peel back the skins

In the Wednesday Feb 20th edition a new healthy scare was unveiled.

Eating Chips once a week increases cancer by a third for men, “scientists say.” In an excerpt from the article – “A single portion every seven days may heighten the danger of prostate cancer by 30 to 37 per cent, according to a new study.”

French Fries

Did you know?, in Great Britain, it can cost up to 69 to 70 pence to import an apple. To secure a chip into our society it can cost as little as SEVEN (7p) pence. With the rise of cancer and the cheapness of imported food, and the myth of five fruits and vegetables a day is a healthier option, as those are costly to bring into the country than the ‘bad’ foods, surely this is a question for the government and its failings to support healthy living and then ‘blame it on the fatties’ later after plumping us up to drive economy for supermarkets forward on cheap produce?

What people will instantly say is “don’t eat them.” Is it really that simple? With budgeting and costly supermarkets alongside welfare cuts and timing for families unable to cook properly due to working all hours for a minor wage or on benefits to scrap the barrels feeling this is the only option as you can buy chips in bulk?

Contostavlos Canned by Cowell!

From Friday’s juicy offering Tulisa Contostavlos has finally been fired from the UK X Factor. Her time on the show was clearly over, but show executive Simon Cowell decided to remove the twenty-four year old from the judging panel. With a place open, and rumours rife, below is the list of X-ies possibly waiting in the wings.

tulisa shine

Mel B was intended to join the panel, though has signed to Australian X Factor and also takes the place of the former female judge on America’s Got Talent, joining Howie Mandel and Howard Stern.

This has left Sharon Osbourne, a former original on X Factor, at a loose end. Many fans feel Cowell is lining Mrs.O up for the job. We shall have more on this in a coming X Factor stratagem soon, though Sharon Osbourne’s time has passed on this show and would be extremely catastrophic to return.

shazza

Rita Ora took a guest spot on the show last year after having one single. She has gone on to have a few more number one singles, of which the show loves to grab as an in-house uplifting of the show’s credentials for headline status which is redundant. It does not heighten the show. As for Ora, dubbed “Rita Whora” last year for allegedly cheating on Robert Kardashian did not gather favour as X Factor assumes. She would not be a good fit, but Cowell is desperate for a female, young and vibrant. Ora is 22.

Cowell has also said to “fight tooth and nail” to allow long-time pal Louis Walsh to remain on the show despite show producers eager to let Louis leave to reform the flagging TV series. Walsh has remained on the panel since its birth in 2003 as this year will be the tenth anniversary. Louis has previously been given the worst categories every year and usually crashes out of the completion first with no acts for weeks continuing into the live shows. It is clearly time for Walsh to go, however Simon Cowell has an unknown favour for his friend who has been carried every year, allowed to make nasty, “bitchy” and aggressive snipes at contestants and votes politically to maintain his acts for his own ego.

rita ora

ITV exec’s wish for Gary Barlow to remain. Barlow is seen as the noble, honest deliverance on screen. He gets some lines from FalseFabs too. 😀

There is one sadness in Tulisa’s demise. While her fag end has been stubbed out, we won’t have anymore “fag ash breath” to muse over!

Liberal Good-bye?

Browsing through The Camden Journal, (Feb 21st) on interesting story was the Liberal Democrat MP Emily Frith who has lost her seat for Hampstead and Kilburn “weeks after she was selected for the seat.”

She opted to take a new position in government civil service with the pre-requisite barring her from running for political office.

It comes amid a murky week of Lib Dems, with the fewest MPs falling in record numbers since the coalition in 2010 down to 57. Chris Huhne’s abdication recently and Nick Clegg suffering with party member Lord Rennard’s sexual allegations from inside the party from females has severely fractured the Lib Dem’s who lost immense support by dismissing their manifesto when going to former a coalition government with the Conservative Party.

Dave disses BBC over candidate absence

Following this in Thursday’s Evening Standard, is Conservative Party henchman David Cameron claiming the BBC “behaved badly” after the Eastleigh by-election candidate missed the debate. Stating the BBC was “stupid” the Prime Minister, who has appeared on the BBC platform numerous times through his candidacy and elected role, and as his primary focus for news over other media outlets said of the missing candidate “Maria Hutchings will be an absolutely first class MP for Eastleigh. She is a local mother of four.” In an except from the paper “Mrs Hutchings is an outspoken figure whose views are at odds with those of Mr Cameron on Europe, abortion and gay marriage.” After a worker asked a question Cameron joked on an issue of money given to alcoholics. Cam said “I think I have found my new welfare minister here.”

To finally end the lunacy of the week’s media was an exclusive! Read all about it, read all about it! Major Headline news! The Sun on Sunday delivered a sterling front page. Cheryl Cole’s ARSE! Wow. Fascinating. Cheryl’s derriere made mainstream news. Charming. Certainly a way to end on a, ahem, bum note.
