amazon ugg John Stevenson and Conservative council chief will not face charges over Tory Battlebus expenses probe

The politician, who was the city’s MP until the dissolution of Parliament on May 3, was among more than 30 people nationally who were at risk of criminal charges as a result of a probe into whether they knowingly broke the rules governing election expenses.

He was told this week that he and his agent during the last election John Mallinson, who leads the Conservatives at Carlisle City Council, will not be prosecuted.

Commenting, the Conservative parliamentary candidate said: “I’m delighted that the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has confirmed that they will not be pursuing me or John Mallinson, and in all honesty I never expected to be charged.

“I would have been gobsmacked if they had charged us.

“We submitted what we honestly believed were true and correct accounts. The Battlebus was considered to be a national expense by our national party and we have written confirmation from our HQ that that was the case.

“Obviously, it’s a relief, but I’m pleased that the CPS have acknowledged that John and I did absolutely nothing wrong.”

All politicians have to abide by strict spending limits so that those backed by wealthier parties do not have an unfair advantage.

The expenses investigation has focused on whether the Conservative Battlebus campaign, which took activists to key marginal constituencies including Carlisle was illegally recorded as a national rather than a local expense.

Mr Stevenson has consistently said he did nothing wrong.

In earlier statements, Mr Stevenson has said he did not believe his party intentionally did anything wrong in its handling of the 2015 general election expenses.

He suggested that a failure to correctly record accommodation expenses of activists following the Battlebus was down to “administrative error.”

The Tories had insisted the Battlebus, which visited Carlisle, was overseen by officials at Conservative Campaign HQ, and thus associated expenses should not have been part of any candidate’s campaign expenses.

Earlier this year,

the Conservative Party was fined 70,000 for failing to accurately report on how much it spend on campaigning in three by elections in 2014, and during the 2015 General Election.

There have been fears that any potential prosecution of current Conservative candidates in the June 8 General Election could throw the party’s campaign into chaos, and make it necessary to find new candidates.

Police in several areas of the country including Cumbria submitted files following the investigation to the Crown Prosecution Service for a decision on whether charges should be brought.

Nick Vamos, who leads the CPS’s Special Crime Unit, said: “We have considered files of evidence from 14 police forces in respect of allegations relating to Conservative Party candidates’ expenditure during the 2015 General Election campaign.

“We considered whether candidates and election agents working in constituencies that were visited by the Party’s ‘Battle Bus’ may have committed a criminal offence by not declaring related expenditure on their local returns. Instead, as the Electoral Commission found in its report, these costs were recorded as national expenditure by the Party.

“Under the Representation of the People Act, every candidate and agent must sign a declaration on the expenses return that to the best of their knowledge and belief it is a complete and correct return as required by law. It is an offence to knowingly make a false declaration.

“In order to bring a charge, it must be proved that a suspect knew the return was inaccurate and acted dishonestly in signing the declaration.

“Although there is evidence to suggest the returns may have been inaccurate, there is insufficient evidence to prove to the criminal standard that any candidate or agent was dishonest.

“The Act also makes it a technical offence for an election agent to fail to deliver a true return.

“By omitting any ‘Battle Bus’ costs, the returns may have been inaccurate.

“However, it is clear agents were told by Conservative Party headquarters that the costs were part of the national campaign and it would not be possible to prove any agent acted knowingly or dishonestly.

“Therefore we have concluded it is not in the public interest to charge anyone referred to us with this offence.”

It’s worse than that. better than a 50/50 chance. And when you look at the Electoral Commission’s information for candidates, there appears to be little possibility that the candidates or their agents didn’t know what the rules were. This has cover up written all over it.

His involvement with the case meant that John was regularly in and out of Monkouse offices and what he saw gave him a taste for television production. This, added to a lack of interest in the policing of England, prompted a career and life overhaul for Murphy.

He plunged himself into the deep end of the stand up comedy circuit.

David Joanasie is seeking a second term as MLA for South Baffin, representing the communities of Cape Dorset and Kimmirut.

Both of his riding communities have pressing infrastructure priorities. For Kimmirut, it the replacement of the community crumbling, 40 year old airport terminal and its accompanying runway.

By Joanasie count, he has brought up this matter in the legislature nearly 20 times during his term. He says this pressure helped bring Nunavut minister of transportation to the community to inspect the facility, and shortly afterward the territory commissioned a site study for a replacement airport and runway.

The territorial government is now attempting to secure federal funds for the project. it was just an idea, said Joanasie.

Cape Dorset, meanwhile, needs to replace its aging power plant, which was built in 1964 and is well past its expected life. A replacement, announced this summer, is expected to cost $28 million and be complete by 2020.

now under construction. But it took over four years to get to here, said Joanasie.

One of the tougher parts of Joanasie past term involved dealing with the loss of Cape Dorset newly renovated Peter Pitseolak High School to arson in Sept. 2015.

does feel like the community lost a resident, Joanasie said at the time. I guess Peter Pitseolak was a person so in a way, his spirit has burned down and is no longer there.

Construction of a new school is now underway. The new building is expected to be ready for students by the start of the 2018 19 school year, at a cost of $34 million.

Joanasie faced the censure of his colleagues in Oct.

Police had charged him for driving with a blood alcohol level more than twice the legal limit. After pleading guilty, Joanasie received a fine and a year long suspension of his driver licence.

After being reprimanded by his fellow MLAs, Joanasie offered a lengthy apology,

in which he said blame lies entirely with me and that he was relieved nobody was hurt and no damage done, than to my reputation.

Reflecting on that event now, Joanasie said, was one of my low points over the past four years. I apologized sincerely to my colleagues and my constituents. I do still feel sorry for what I had done. I can erase it from my history. I have to live with it. Nunavut education system remains a preoccupation for Joanasie. He like to see the territory make greater efforts to hire Inuit educators and to develop curriculum that helps convey Nunavut history.

Joanasie is a graduate of the Nunavut Sivuniksavut college program in Ottawa, which he credits as an eye opening experience for understanding how Nunavut Inuit came to be where they are today. regaining that history and trying to become the self reliant and strong people that we once were, he said.

The next time Nunavut legislators take a run at amending the territory Education Act they will have to involve more people in the process, he said. The recent, failed attempt at reform only involved a special committee with five MLAs, when greater efforts were needed to involve all MLAs, and also draw Inuit organizations into the process, he said.

need to have everyone on board, he said.

And creative solutions could help address Nunavut severe shortage of social housing. Joanasie wonders whether it worth borrowing an idea from the territory mining camps, which use quick to assemble, modular housing to shelter their workers. this is worth duplicating, he said.

Joanasie was the youngest MLA to be elected last time around. But if he re elected, that will no longer be the case. Mila Adjukak Kamingoak, who won Kugluktuk seat in the legislature by acclamation, is 31.

Joanasie is being challenged by Michael Salomonie, most recently a reporter with CBC Nunavut. He declined to be interviewed by Nunatsiaq News.

His campaign Facebook page says he like to improve Cape Dorset public housing availability and the community access to health care and other government services.

For Kimmirut, Salomonie identifies the need to replace the community airport and the high cost of air travel. He also raises the question of whether the community would benefit from redrawn electoral boundaries.

Hotel Downtown. “We went out, Jacob wasn’t healthy yet, and we beat Notre Dame. We came back home and won another ball game (against Samford). You could see us starting to click and the ball starting to move down the field with relative ease. It was a good formula at that time. We never predetermined anything but you couldn’t make that change at the time, when Jacob got healthy. It wouldn’t have been the right thing at the time.”

“(Fromm’s) such a humble young man and his appreciation for the role that he stepped into and he had a great appreciation for the struggles Jacob was going through,” Chaney said. “The team could feel that and sense that. Just humility had as much to do with anything. But he’s a talented guy and after a while the kids were kind of, ‘Hey, we’re alright.’ I think when we went up and beat Notre Dame up there, it was a tight ball game, I called a real conservative game that day. That day, his first start up there, I was probably a little more conservative than I probably should have been but it worked and we won. But after we left that place I feel like there was a feeling that, alright, we got a chance to play with about anybody right now.”

ugg boots bailey button JFK assassination secret files set to be released to public

ugg clog boots JFK assassination secret files set to be released to public

BOSTON For decades, the existence of secret government files linked to President John F. Kennedy’s assassination has helped fuel conspiracy theories that others besides Lee Harvey Oswald were involved in his murder. Now the public is going to get a deeper look at the collection.

The government is required by Thursday to release the final batch of files related to Kennedy’s assassination in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963. Experts say the publication of the last trove of evidence could help allay suspicions of a conspiracy at least for some.

“As long as the government is withholding documents like these, it’s going to fuel suspicion that there is a smoking gun out there about the Kennedy assassination,” said Patrick Maney, a presidential historian at Boston College.

Here’s a look at what to expect from the files:


The collection includes more than 3,100 documents comprising hundreds of thousands of pages that have never been seen by the public. About 30,000 documents were released previously with redactions. The National Archives is planning to post the files on its website.

It’s unclear exactly how many files will be released. President Donald Trump is the only person who can stop any of the documents from becoming public and he’s not tipping his hand. On Wednesday, the eve of their scheduled release, Trump tweeted: “The long anticipated release of the JFKFiles will take place tomorrow. So interesting!”

On Saturday, he had tweeted that “subject to the receipt of further information” he will allow the “long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened.”

The CIA and FBI, whose files make up the bulk of the final batch, have refused to say whether they’re lobbying the president to keep any of the files under wraps. Experts expect certain IRS files to remain secret, like the tax return of Jack Ruby, the man who killed Oswald two days after Kennedy’s assassination when the suspect was in police custody. Bush signed a law on Oct. 26, 1992, requiring that all documents related to the assassination be released within 25 years, unless the president says doing so would harm intelligence, law enforcement, military operations or foreign relations. The push for transparency was driven in part by the uproar in the wake of Oliver Stone’s 1991 conspiracy theory filled film “JFK.”

The chances are slim, according to the judge who led the independent board that reviewed and released thousands of the assassination documents in the 1990s. The files that were withheld in full were those the Assassination Records Review Board deemed “not believed relevant,” Judge John Tunheim of Minnesota told The Associated Press. But Tunheim said it’s possible the files contain information the board didn’t realize was important two decades ago.

JFK experts believe the files will provide insight into the inner workings of the CIA and FBI. But they stress that it will take weeks to mine the documents for potentially new and interesting information.

Some of the documents are related to Oswald’s mysterious six day trip to Mexico City right before the assassination, scholars say. Oswald said he was visiting the Cuban and Soviet Union embassies there to get visas, but much about his time there remains unknown.
