YOU SIMPLY CAN NOT RUN A LIBRARY WITHOUT EQUALITY TRAINING

This bit of farce involves a law firm called Public Interest Lawyers, headed by a fellow named Phil Shiner.  And sure wish someone would give him one.

He’s very much concerned with ‘rights’ and especially those right of some people who very much want to kill Brit soldiers.  But hey, never mind working against your own kind.  It’s expected of certain kinds of people and might disappoint if they didn’t.

He sues his own country on behalf of foreigners who intend harm. But here’s a catch for ya.  Seems Brit military are holding a number of people the papers are referring to as the Brit Gitmo.  Now originally the military was to have turned over their prisoners to Afghan authorities.  But wait, due to the threat of possible harm done under torture by the Afghans, the kindly Mr Shiner wants those prisoners released instead.

It was Mr Shiner who led the case that ended with a 2010 High Court block on the transfer of detainees from Camp Bastion to the Afghan authorities, which compelled the British military to keep so many prisoners in detention in the first place.

Not exactly ‘F’ Troop but one could I suppose write sit-com on it.  Anyway ....

Farce of ‘British Guantanamo’: Lawyers (with BBC help) demand 90 Afghans be freed but now say they’re better off IN prison

Eight of the inmates have been held for as long as 14 months
They haven’t been charged or given access to lawyers, it is claimed
Defence Secretary Philip Hammond today defended the policy

By David Williams and Steve Doughty

Britain was embroiled in a costly legal farce last night over the fate of up to 90 Taliban detainees suspected of trying to kill UK troops.

Lawyers for the Afghans – given a huge platform yesterday by the BBC – claimed the prisoners are being illegally detained at a ‘secret’ prison within Camp Bastion in Helmand Province and demanded they be brought before a court or released.

But when Defence Secretary Philip Hammond indicated that the military was prepared to release them to the Afghan authorities, the same lawyers – funded by legal aid – said they might launch fresh action in the UK courts to prevent that happening.

There’s more to the story of course but turning to another case totally unrelated to war and prisoners in Afghanistan, the same lawyer and his firm,
Public Interest Lawyers, have brought this about.
I guess volunteering to work free in a library here is a no no.  Years ago we were told the one here in our town didn’t have volunteers so I guess it could be country wide. Yet there has been a staffing problem we read, some time ago.
So here. Take a look at this from Mr. Shiner and his group of left wing nut jobs.

The man who loves to sue Britain… on legal aid, of course

A familiar name appeared in the BBC reports.

Phil Shiner.  His firm, Public Interest Lawyers, made its name in Iraq, where Mr Shiner represented alleged victims of abuses by British troops.

The firm’s interests are, however, not exclusively abroad.

Its most recent highly-publicised domestic case was last month when it represented a campaign group who objected to the use of unpaid workers in Surrey libraries on the grounds ..... 

they had not received equality training.


It won the case and the county council was barred by a High Court judge from using volunteers to work in its libraries. This was, said Mr Shiner, a ‘fantastic result’.

The libraries are now threatened with closure.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
