And another one

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2018/0...course-justice/

A Labour whip and ally of Jeremy Corbyn has been charged with perverting the course of justice after allegations that she tried to give away speeding points a month after her election.

Fiona Onasanya, the Labour MP for Peterborough, appeared at Westminster magistrates court two weeks ago alongside her brother, Festus.

The former solicitor kept news of her arrest and charge secret while serving as a Labour whip. She is due back in court next month.

Solicitors and MP's seem to have issues with speeding tickets, this one is both !!!

In the past, where seeking change through democratic means was impossible, there may well have been circumstances where acts that would today be classed as terrorism would be justified

Including some parts of the women's suffrage movement, of course - and I don't imagine there'd be many people nowadays who'd want to characterise their (fairly ineffectual) bombing campaign as terrorism.


really? They used arson and bombing as a means to effect change. Rather similar to the IRA. Both in the end got pretty much what they wanted.

I think you need to check your history.
The IRA or more properly the Irish Problem has been going on for centuries, has not been resolved and won't be, in the eyes of the IRA/Republicans, until NI is united with Eire and the UK has no control whatsoever.
All the Good Friday Agreement did was to broker a conditional peace.
It could be said that it has or may resolve the problem for the majority on both sides but all that violence did was to eventually get people sick enough of it to be prepared to talk.

And I rather doubt that any act of violence had any direct impact on women's suffrage.
Bedroom power probably had a lot more influence on the success.
Nagging wives will also influence men in power.

At the risk of diverting discussion back to the original subject smile.gif, her appeal will be heard (and hopefully rapidly disposed of) on 5 March.

It's still jarring being reminded that the sentence was only 3 months.

Can the appeal against sentence, and the AG's referral under the ULS scheme be heard, and disposed of, at the same time?

Would be a very efficient use of course time for them to decide, in one fell swoop, that she is in fact guilty and she can stay in prison for longer for her troubles.

Not a scoobie but IMO efficient use of time and our court system are oxymorons.
