An ex Labour activist Stuart Bower, a former police officer who was later a constituency secretary for the Labour Party in Hove in 1997 took Gordon Brown to court today.
Mr Bower claims that the government promised a referendum on the European
Constitution in its election manifesto of 2005. The court will be asked
to decide whether the government's refusal to hold one is a breach of
contract with all those who voted Labour in the 2005 General Election.
The lovely Trixy has a real scoop today and blogged this direct from the court.
Gordon's barrister, who stood up this morning to inform the court that
“manifesto pledges are not subject to legitimate expectation” and
therefore cannot be relied upon in a court of law.
Did you get that – A Labour manifesto is WORTHLESS. So that's official then.
He disgustingly displays his Contempt, complete and utter contempt for you and your country.
Every Labour MP must search his soul tonight, and decide whether they are as big a liar as Gordon. If the manifesto was a lie, then you no longer need to feel tied to the whip, vote for what is best for our nation, not what is best for Gordon, for when he is done with you, when you have done his bidding, you too will become worthless to him.
Every Labour voter must now decide whether they can ever vote Labour again, knowing that the entire NuLab project is based upon lies. Not just little lies, but multitudes of lies, and the biggest lie of all is giving away our sovereignty, against the will of the people and denying them their say.
The House ethics committee must now seriously consider whether Brown has brought the House into disrepute, and if so, they must act to impeach him.
I for one now feel that I have every right to lie to any government department, never again will they get true and accurate information from me. I will lie about my name, my age, my date of birth, my place of birth, and if challenged I will use Gordon's own defence and put him up as my role model.
As Mr Eugenides says: you know something's gone wrong with politics when… (1) you tell a
court “I'm a liar and my promises cannot be relied on”, and (2) that's
NuLab – Destroying Britain from the inside out.
