Cabinet Ministers Refuse To Go Before Parliamentary Committee


The Foreign Secretary and The Home (Economics) Secretary
have both refused to appear before the Joint Committee on Human Rights to answer questions about the torture of and British Citizens and Residents detained during counter-terrorism operations in Pakistan.

This is hot on the heels of the Defence Secretary admitting that Britsh Forces had handed detainees over to the Americans.

In a joint letter to the JCHR the pair failed to answer any of the questions posed by the committee, coming up instead with the following excuses.

Jacqui Smith: "I regret that I am far too busy getting on with the job of trying to justify the hundreds of thousands of pounds of taxpayers' money I have stolen in allowances by pretending that my sister's spare bedroom is my main residence to bother coming along to your stupid little committee. Don't you realise that no one cares about these terrorists, and that it is good for them to have their fingernails pulled out?"

David Millipede: "I'm terribly sorry, but I have to spend some quality time with my collection of bananas, and consequently can't be arsed talking down to you proles."

There you have it, yet another triumph for the democratic process and Parliamentary oversight of the executive.

Well we knew the extent of contempt that this Govt. held the electorate in.
Now we see the contempt it holds Parliament in.
Sadly the MPs. are to busy troughing it to be much bothered.
It only takes 1/2 of them +1 to sort it.

it's either banned or compulsory said...

Triple whammy for the good things in life.
Just for once that Jaquicunt is accidentally right.

"The Foreign Secretary and The Home (Economics) Secretary have both refused to appear before the Joint Committee on Human Rights to answer questions about the torture of British Citizens and Residents "

What British citizens ? Binman is not even a resident since he had vacated himself to Afghanista, the cunt.

Jaqui SSmith said "Don't you realise that no one cares about these terrorists" quite so, neither do I.
