UK – Once again it is time to elect the Bastard of the week. True to form we have a number of excellent candidates. The most obvious candidate is of course convicted paedophile Rolf Harris. Too obvious and he is being given a well deserved going over in the jokes and images in the funny bastards section.
Then we have David Cameron best mate convicted criminal Andy Coulson, getting sent down for 18 months. But he was the sacrificial bit of meat for the gallery. The real cancer there is Rupert Murdoch.
Then there is former Home Secretary Leon Britain who somehow managed to not follow up properly a whole raft of evidence against establishment paedophiles. The file is now ‘lost’ conveniently. The Bastard will give him his share of the going overs when he finally faces the music. It may well happen Even the “Chingford Skinhead” Norman Tebbit has turned against him. 32 years too late.
Then today comes the news that Iain Dummkopf Schmidt’s retrospective legislation, hurriedly passed to cover up his political incompetence and criminal activity. Has been declared incompatible with human right legislation.
Ed Miliband also deserves an honourable mention for supporting Iain Dummkopf Schmidt in the parliamentary vote that passed the defective legislation.
To us the whole idea of retrospective legislation is wrong. It is either a crime or it is not when it is committed. Making something unlawful after the event is wrong. As it the flip side, a government legalizing a criminal act after it has committed it. So is the principle of extraterritoriality. A countries laws only apply in their territory. In all other territories the local laws have precedence.
So there you have it the monster bell end and Bastard of the Week has to be Iain Dummkopf Schmidt. Not for the first or last lime.
