Sami Chakrabarti is like a 29 bus..

Just when you mentin how few Sami Chakrbatis there are about - up pops Ken Linvingstone sasyin gthe demure doe eyed, ex Home Offic lawyre should exaine the case of Ian Tomlinson etc.,

Then like the 29 bus, several Chakrabartis appear.

Apparently Plod seized an obscure Tory MP's computers and set about searching for evidence of the telegenic scarf adjusting,bright eyed feminist who leads Liberty in his e -mails.

No - show.

Which may be of course because Bob Quick (now Ex - terrist in Chief) was typing in the query list and got his vowels in a twist.

Cue : Sami thinks all this raises some "important questions".

Of course it does chuck, but tell us what you think the important questions are.

Hands up those who see the "crumple zone" of dissent adroitly shroudng public dissent and argument about waht Craig Murray calls Ian Tomlinso'smrder.Stepforward the Lady Dame Jane Pauline Baroness Neville Jones, David Davis, and all the the appalling people (Andrew McKinley) in the pay of Lord Ashcroft who support both "Total Politics" the removal of habeus corpus and locking people up without charge for 29 days whist you hunt for evidence.

Ian Tomlinson's death - more inconsistencies revealed, more lies exposed

So Lord Patel's namesake pathologist said Ian Tomlinson died of a heart atttack and this turns out to be wrong - or at least another patholgist (Dr Nat Cary, one of the country’s leading forensic pathologists,)says death was result of internal bleeding.

Ex London Mayor Kenny the Red on Channel 4 says Mr Patel has a history ...Hmmmm

Then he spoils it by suggesting Shami Chakrabarti be brought in to examine the evidence.

Whoop de doo, an ex Home Office lawyer to examine what part ofthe Home Office (police) is up to ? Perhaps not.

The Tomlinson family would be unwise to accept any help from that quarter.

Demand destruction leading to non OPEC oil glut on horizon

Rembrandt at Oil Drum Eurpe has his usual excellent roundup of world oil/liquids production demand - full report here.

is shows how dmeand destruction has started in a big way - excess capcity now will swell with projects coming on line plannedwhen prices were higher."given reasonable expectations of a slow recovery we face a huge glut of oil with capacity several mbd above the 2008 peak and a fairly significant amount not under OPEC control." comments one reader.

1) Conventional crude production - Latest available figures from the Energy Information Administration (EIA) show that crude oil production including lease condensates decreased by 1.02 million b/d from December 2008 to January 2009, = total production of crude oil including lease condensates of 71.69 million barrels per day. The all time high production record of crude oil stands at 74.83 million b/d reached in July 2008.

2) Total liquids production - In March 2009 world production of total liquids decreased by 400,000 barrels per day from February according to the latest figures of the International Energy Agency (IEA). resulting in total world liquids production of 83.35 million b/d.

Average global production in 2009 for the first three months of 2009 was 83.9 million b/d. In 2008 and 2007, the averages were 86.59 and 85.41 million b/d respectively. The US Energy Information Administration (EIA) in their International Petroleum Monthly puts average global 2008 production at 85.46 million b/d and average 2007 production at 84.43 million b/d.

3) OPEC Production - Total crude oil production excluding lease condensates of the OPEC cartel decreased by 230,000 b/d to a level of 27.84 million b/d, from February to March 2009, according to the latest available estimate of the IEA. OPEC natural gas liquids production remained stable from February to March at a level at 4.68 million b/d. Average total liquids production in OPEC countries for the three months ended March 2009 was 33.01 million b/d, versus 36.09 million b/d in 2008, and 35.02 million b/d in 2007.

4) Non-OPEC Production - Total crude oil production including lease condensates of non-OPEC increased by 61,000 b/d from December 2008 to January 2009 to a level of 41.66 million b/d, according to the latest available estimate of the EIA. Average crude oil production of non-OPEC in 2008 was 41.31 million b/d, versus 41.80 million b/d in 2007 and 41.87 million b/d in 2006. Total non-OPEC liquids production decreased by 170,000 b/d to a level of 50.83 million b/d from February to March 2009, according to the latest figures of the IEA. Average total liquids production of non-OPEC for the three months ended March 2009 was 50.89 million b/d.

5) OECD liquids demand - In January 2009 OECD, oil consumption declined by 866,000 b/d from December 2008 according to the latest estimate from JODI, resulting in a total consumption level of 45.84 million b/d, representing a year on year decline of 1.87 million b/d. Average consumption in 2008 was 46.16 million b/d, which is 1.52 million b/d lower than consumption in the same period in 2007.

The physical manifestation in Europe are the loaded mega tankers moored in Lyme Bay, Devon , waiting for the market to rise to dash to Rotterdam.

Mr Brown - " I am shocked, shocked !"

"I am sorry about what happened."

"I have said all along that when I saw this first I was horrified, I was shocked, I was very angry indeed."

"I think the most important thing is to reassure people that everything is being done to clean up politics in this country."

"I wrote to those people who were affected by it. I expressed very deep regret for what happened."

"The person who was responsible went immediately and has lost his job. And I have ensured that there are new rules so that this cannot happen again."

There are those cynics amongst us - yes indeed, cynicism survives even yet dear reader. There are some who reading the above might feel that the Prime Minister was merely sorry Mr McBryde was caught in flagrante delicto.

Anybody remember that pussy cat Bernard Ingham ? John Biffen was unnatributably described as a "semi-detached" member of the Government. Sure enough, Biffen was dropped at the next reshuffle.

Then, bluff Yorkshire "fowk" have a monopoly on unctuous humbuggary.

Those Downing Street e-mails - the complete text

The infamous Downing Street boiler room e-mails raise some puzzling points which do not seem to have been addressed.

1. How were they intercepted .... if directly, it brings shades of the Charlie telcon when he discussed aricles of intimate feminine hygeine with his (current) wife **** ...and even earlier his (then) wifes intimacies with a lover (?) - requiring a technology available to only a few.

2. Apparently Paul Staines is a Cunt received copies (paper / electronically, known or unknown source ?) on Jan 13th - why the wait by this gobby and vicious smut peddler ?

3.Paul Staines is a Cunt is well oiled into the lunatic well fed,well rich, far right - as is Iain Dale the other far righ ist amateur blogiste. Viz the Stateless, homeless Lord Ashcroft .

4. Did their release help to destroy Glamourous Gordon AND (as shit sticks) unsteady the current Cnservative Party leadrship ?

After all Moneybags Wheeler has decamped, maybe with a few of his lunatic friends.Perhaps changes may ring in the dosh they require for an election....

Charles to Camillal: "I want to feel my way along you, all over you and up and down you and in and out. Oh God, I'll just live inside your trousers or something -- it would be much easier."

* Camilla: "What are you going to turn into, a pair of knickers? Oh, you're going to come back as a pair of knickers."

* Charles: "Or, God forbid, a Tampax . Just my luck!" Camilla: "You are a complete idiot! Oh, what a wonderful idea."

Watchdog wrong in G20 CCTV claim

George Galloway , Viva Palestina and the curious case of the Charity Commission ....

The full text of a letter from Gerge Galloway to Louise Edwards, Compliance Investigation Unit (London)Charity Commission Direct is available here hich is lenghy and detaled and is best appreciated by reading the full text.

"You first frightened the banks into refusing our attempts to open a bank account. When we finally found a bank which would allow us to open an account you intimidated them into freezing it, I believe exceeding your powers. You then began procuring documents - possibly illegally - about us from the Islamic Bank. As a result of your press briefings about your "concerns" newspapers began to refuse to accept advertisements from us, donors turned away, and the public were encouraged to believe that Viva Palestina was something to be avoided - conjuring-up an undisclosed but lurking suspicion about it."

Read on about the fascinating way the Charity Commission goes about it's business....

Harlan Ullman : The Voice of Reason

Harlan Ullman famous for his theories of Shock and Awe and enthusiastic customer of the louche and loose ladies of Madame Palfrey has contributed the UPI.com - Emerging Threats - Outside View: To the shores of Tripoli

Should al-Qaida decide that the oceans provide the means to turn ships into the equivalent of civilian airliners made into bombers on Sept. 11, 2001, one attack would be all that it might take to shut down a major port or impose huge damage. The prospect of a 300,000-deadweight-ton supertanker or container ship hurtling at 30 knots into a major port and then ramming into major structures such as New York City's Battery or the George Washington Bridge is a real nightmare scenario.

And if that ship were carrying 30,000 tons of liquid gas or another product that could be turned into an explosive, such as grain, the result could have the force of the nuclear weapons that demolished Hiroshima and Nagasaki. That would be an attack that surely would surpass Sept. 11 by any means of reckoning.

Now that really will give us all sleepless nights.

For more background on Mr Ullman's activities in Pakistan see post Saturday, December 20, 2008 Whoremonger Harlan Ullman brings more Shock 'n' Awe to Islamabad with Hilary Sinnott.

O'Bomber ....all things to all men

President O'Bomber hosts a traditional second night Seder dinner in the Old Family Dining Room of the White House on Thursday night, April 9, 2009. Some friends and White House employees and their families joined the Obama family. (Official White House photo by Pete Souza)

The staff of the Pesidents Office in the White House have held seders since at least the Clinton administration of the late 1990s.[17] O'Bombers decision , announced only on Tuesday meant it was the first time that a sitting president is known to have hosted and observed a seder at the White House. Guests included First Lady Michelle Obama and their daughters, Malia and Sasha, as well as a dozen staff members and friends along with their families.

A story from AP today - President Barack O'Bomber and his family are heading to church this Easter.

The O'Bombers plan to visit a church on Easter Sunday. However nobody yet knows where, citing security and privacy.

The worlds most powerful man hasn't attended public church services in Washington since taking office. He left his Chicago church last year after his pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, caused a controversy with his incendiary rhetoric.

Advisers say O'Bomber is going to be careful which house of God he chooses because reporters will dig into the church's and pastor's history.

Why, I can smile, and murder whiles I smile,
And cry ‘Content’ to that which grieves my heart
And wet my cheeks with artificial tears,
And frame my face to all occasions.

-- Gloucester, ‘‘Henry VI’’ -- Shakespeare
