It's just been reported that a British couple, Keith Baker and wife kidnapped a woman with learning deficiencies, from England, moved her to Craigavon, in Northern Ireland and both raped and sexually assaulted her over a period of eight years
Their victim was kept in "slave-like conditions over that period, where she was staved,beaten and imprisoned in appallingly filthy conditions
The neighbours say they had no idea off what was going on - one neighbour has just said "I though it was only domestic abuse". !!!!
Other women have come forward to report similar treatment, one woman had had three of Baker's children
The Bakers met when they worked together for the Salvation Army
Now is this an English, Northern Irish or Christian (Salvation Army) example of an "over-representation" of sexual slavery
Answers on a postcard please.
CHRISTIAN SLAVERY

A final word on Keith's insitence that I invented the claim that No Traveller signs were not common
Just to preempt his saying that he never made such an accusation
Nor has anyone else except you Jim!
How can they be common if no-one has ever seen them except a well known Mudcat liar?


This - from a Traveller newspaper - The Traveller Times, dated June 19th following the victorious case against J D Weatherspoons
It described, from personal experience, that Travellers were not only refused service in pubs, but also "restaurants, hotels, clubs, taxis, bowling alleys and other businesses"
I've no doubt that, as it doesn't suit Keith and Teribus's racist agenda, it will be passed off as more inventions by "lying eye-witnesses"
I very much doubt if an apology or a retraction will be forthcoming so there's an end to this particular stinking saga
Did you "win" that one as well Keith!!!
Jim Carroll

"No Travellers"? No more, say lawyers who fought Wetherspoon and won
Tide turns against "No Travellers allowed" after Wetherspoons cases
Mobile phones put the power to get evidence in your hands
Lawyers win compensation for Travellers turned away due to race
"We want to hear from victims of blatant racism", say Howe & Co
"The last bastion of acceptable racism has come crashing down. It is dead." These are the clarion calls and headlines that have greeted the landmark legal victories of Romany Gypsies and Irish Travellers against the pub giant Wetherspoon, the largest pub chain in the UK with over 930 pubs.
We all know this has been going on for years: pubs, restaurants, hotels, clubs, taxis, bowling alleys and other businesses refusing entrance and service because you're a Traveller or Gypsy, or even because you're a friend of associate of Travellers.
"Sorry boys, can't serve you today." "Sorry ladies, no entry today I'm afraid."   It happens so often that some Gypsy and Traveller people just accept it as part of their lot in life. "Don't bother going in there, you won't get a pint."
But being refused service because of your race is not your lot in life, it is against the law. These recent court judgments show that at last, judges are starting to understand the grinding, everyday racism that Gypsies and Travellers have to put up with. Compensation is being awarded. We are the lawyers who won the case against Wetherspoon, and if you've experienced discrimination like this and can prove it, read on, because we can help YOU.
Make no mistake about it, the fight for equal treatment for Gypsies and Travellers has had an almighty boost from the seminal judgment of Judge Hand QC in the case of The Traveller Movement and others v JD Wetherspoon plc handed down on 18 May 2015 and from the following open admission of unlawful race discrimination made by Wetherspoon two weeks later in a second case brought by Irish Travellers in Cambridge. It's like buses – you wait for years for a good case to come along and suddenly there are two of them!
The facts are typical of cases where businesses discriminate against Travellers. In November 2011 the Traveller Movement held its annual conference in north London in a building next door to a Wetherspoon pub, "the Coronet". At the end of the conference delegates left the conference hall to go for a social drink next door. The first group to approach the pub included two Traveller women, a priest, a solicitor, and a policeman. Bouncers blocked their entrance with words to the effect of 'you're not coming in because you're from the Traveller conference'. In court Traveller and Gypsy witnesses, with immense dignity, exposed gut wrenching raw emotions of what it is like to have shouldered years and years of blatant racism.
The judge got it. He understood what it is all about. He said it all came down to "stereotypical assumptions", to "racial stereotyping" by the manager of the pub. The judge said that such attitudes could be boiled down to the "crude proposition that whenever Irish Travellers and English Gypsies go to public houses violent disorder is inevitable because that is how they behave". The judge found the pub to guilty of direct discrimination on the grounds of race and awarded each refused person £3,000 compensation for their hurt to feelings for "being temporarily denied a social occasion in the most convenient venue". The pub chain has to payout damages totalling £24,000. It's a wake-up call for service providers to stop their racist treatment of Travellers and Gypsies.
In the second case a group of Travellers went out in Cambridge on 27 February 2015 to celebrate the birth of a child and the birthdays of two members of the group. Several of them approached the doors to the Tivoli pub to be told "No Travellers tonight", although at first the bouncers and manager claimed there was a "bookings only policy" – how often are lame excuses used to mask the real issue of unlawful race discrimination. On the back of the court win in the first case, Wetherspoon caved in and openly admitted unlawful direct discrimination, offering each person refused entrance £3,500 in compensation.
Enough is enough. We all know of too many examples of wedding receptions cancelled at the last minute, of restaurants taking money up front, of restaurants happy to take your money for a take-away but not prepared to let you sit down, of pubs and clubs refusing entrance or throwing you out. There are too many examples of "not your kind", of "not your type". No longer do you have to move on to the next pub or the next club in the hope that someone will let you in. No longer do you have to be embarrassed and humiliated feeling somehow second-class. No longer do you have to hide your proud identity.
My law firm, Howe & Co in London, won the two Wetherspoon cases. I was the solicitor barred at the doors of the Coronet pub in the first Wetherspoon case, as I had been at the conference because I am a member of the board of the Traveller Movement. Howe & Co is absolutely committed to stamping out this prejudice wherever it raises its ugly head.
We have set up a powerful campaign team in Howe & Co to fight these cases. We want to hear from anyone who has been the victim of blatant racism and help them win compensation and get formal apologies. We take on these cases on a no-win no-fee basis, or with the help of Legal Aid.
You can help. Mobile phones are providing a revolution in proving discrimination claims. If you are a victim of discriminatory behaviour immediately record the incident on your phone. Take a video of what is happening. Make a sound recording. Ask the person discriminating against you if it is because you are a Traveller?   Record the reasons given for the refusal of service. If there are independent witnesses to the incident ask for their details.
The team of lawyers working on this campaign at Howe & Co includes our three partners – Martin Howe, Kieran O'Rourke and David Enright.   Together we can bring an end to this nasty soul-destroying prejudice and if service providers persist in their unlawful conduct we will make them pay in compensation, costs and loss of reputation.

"On another of your pals misrepresentations - No IDF soldier massacred any inhabitants of any refugee camp - Another Shaw lie you don't seem fussed about."

I never said this in the first place! I do keep trying to tell you, you know. Do you lie in bed of a night repeating something to yourself that you want to be true, but isn't, like a mantra, than wake up in the morning thinking it's really true? If you can't get a really simple thing like that right, rather like Keith with his "fraudulent", you haven't got a hope in hell of getting anyone to believe anything else you say.

As for keeping desperately quiet, well what else is there to say really? All I need to do is to keep desperately quiet and watch with amusement as you cut and paste your nonsense yet again and observe Keith as he unapologetically prattles on about how he triumphantly defeated me, made us all lose, yet doesn't play games, and predict when he will next mention decent democracies or bring up Labour's "serious antisemitism problem" or insinuate to us what bastards all travellers might be because of two court cases in four years. No wonder I keep accidentally wanting to mention "fraudulent" every time Keith posts. As for you, calm down, dear!   

I'm not surprised the mods leave this festering thread running. There is too much comedy to be had. Think I need a laugh this morning so I think I'll say "Wheatcroft" and set you off again, like Blackadder deliberately saying Macbeth. Now there a picture to conjure! I can just envisage you and Keith doing pat-a-cake with each other's hands and chanting "Hot potato, orchestra stalls, Puck will make amends!" followed by tweaking each other's noses. Shall we give it a whirl?

the fact remains that without Steve's intervention the false claim would have remained.

Obviously I could not correct something if I did not know needed correction, but it did not require an "intervention" falsely accusing me of lying.
I had no need to lie about what Wheatcroft said. He was on my side.

Drawing a slip to someone's attention is quite different to such an "intervention."

I do not play games.

You have no interest in debating or sharing your ideas - it is about "winning and losing"
Nobody "wins or loses" and only you even consider it as a reason for debate

Maybe you will find more satisfaction in Euro-vision or one of the dancing programmes

"My only point has been that the phrase fraudulent to describe both books was false."

And the error was acknowledged and corrected within an hour of it being pointed out - something that you seem to fail to acknowledge. What else is patently obvious that you appear to be blind to is that your pal Shaw since that correction was made has constantly and deliberately misrepresented and lied about there being any correction or any admission of error.

HERE IT IS AGAIN GNOME

SHAW'S WHEATCROFT SAGA

How Steve Shaw "makes up shit" and what an acknowledgement and correction of an error looks like:

On the 10th December, 2014 the following text was faithfully and accurately posted by Keith A of Hertford in a thread titled "WWI was No Mans Land" from an article by Geoffrey Wheatcroft that appeared in the Guardian, 9 Dec 2014

"That series had been preceded in 1963 by AJP Taylor's rather vulgar book, The First World War: An Illustrated History, and Oh, What a Lovely War!, Joan Littlewood's musical pasquinade. The latter, which used the songs the Tommies had sung in the trenches, drew on Alan Clark's 1961 book The Donkeys – a largely fraudulent book, whose title derives from an invented quotation about "lions led by donkeys", that nevertheless made a mark."

This thread was closed on 18th December but the discussion continued on another WWI thread titled "I am not an historian but ..." in which Keith A made a passing reference to the passage quoted above on the 17th December, 2014

The Guardian last week described the work of Clark and Taylor as "fraudulent."

Steve Shaw questioned this and within an hour of Steve Shaw posting Keith A of Hertford replied as follows:

Subject: RE: BS: I am not an historian but........
From: Keith A of Hertford - PM
Date: 17 Dec 14 - 11:22 AM

Ok Steve.
[The acknowledgement]
The Guardian printed a piece, by a Guardian correspondent, that described Taylor and Clark's work as "vulgar" and "fraudulent."
[The correction]

IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWED BY:

Subject: RE: BS: I am not an historian but........
From: Keith A of Hertford - PM
Date: 17 Dec 14 - 11:25 AM

The Guardian printed a piece, by a Guardian correspondent, that described Taylor and Clark's work as "vulgar" and "fraudulent" respectively.
[Further correction making clear what adjective applied to which author's work]

After the above acknowledgment and correction had been given in the "I am not an historian but ...." thread the complete passage from Wheatcroft's article was posted five times which when you couple that to the speed of Keith A's response and correction blows the Shaw theory of it being deliberate misrepresentation clear out of the water - and yet Shaw to this day still attempts to convey the idea that no acknowledgement and correction was ever made, which of course is a downright LIE.

Your pal Steve Shaw is a lying bastard Gnome, there it is displayed above for all to see, and everytime Wheatcroft is brought up that will be posted to set the record straight. After all you did say that you weren't too keen on people misrepresenting things didn't you? Or, like your pal Shaw, are you a liar and a hypocrite too?

"Yes, but they can only be interpreted as an over-representation."
I think it's time we put a stop to this hate campaign ourselves
When the moderator said "don't feed the troll", this is exactly what we are doin by responding t this behaviour.
We should really know better, after all, it's not as if it hasn't happened before.
Keith started his hate crusade back on the Muslim thread - he took the behaviour of a handful of criminals who happened to be Muslims, deliberately misused a term that had appeared in the press, "over-representation", and applied the actions of those handful of criminals to claim they represented the culture of the Muslim People of Britain, a million and a half of them - he even went as far as to invent a "cultural implant" to cast suspicion on the entire Muslim community.
He has maintained that stance since, though he has invented a secret army of "witnesses" (who he refuses to quote", who, he claims, put the idea into his head.
AS far as I am concerned, that is pretty extreme stuff.
The last time anybody went so far as to publicly make a cultural link to a serious crime wa when the Nazis came up with cultural theories about the Jews - we know the outcome of that one only too well.
Not long after this, we got into an argument about the Irish Famine, in the course of which a historian was produced who had explained that, after Independence the new Irish State revised its education system to include the parts of history that had been omitted from the schools under the centuries of British rule - that of the Irish people who acted independently from the behavior imposed by the British controlled administration and had fought for self expression and self - government, the blossoming of Irish literature a movement now referred to in Ireland as 'The Irish Renaissance'.
Keith leaped on the explanation (by historian, Christine Kinealy) and transformed it into "brainwashing" - all of a sudden we had an entire young population of Irish schoolchildren who had been "brainwashed to hate the British", though Keith as never at any time able to explain how that "hatred manifested itself - the Irish, in general, don't "hate" anybody, (though they do have Keith's problem with Travellers that they have recently taken serious steps to rectify).
Now he's started seriously on Travellers.
He has taken the criminal behaviour of a minute number of criminals who happen to be Travellers, has picked up a term used by the press, slave-like conditions", and invented a "massive over-representation of slave-owning within the Travelling community"
Nobody, not even in the sewer-press, has ever made such a claim - this is entirely out of Keith's sick mind.
The incident is now a thing of the past, the press and society in general has forgotten the incident and it is remembered only as the act of a few criminals.
Keith has taken to it like a duck (or should that be a leech) to water and is now using it to denigrate and smear an entire community who really do have enough problems to cope with.
It is only a matter of time before he comes up with another "cultural implant" theory to back his claims
I think our moderator is right - by "feeding the troll" we are giving him the soapbox he needs to spread his hate and distrust.
I detested Margaret Thatcher every bit as much as a detest people who deliberately spread cultural and racial hatred and fear, but her saying "oxygen of publicity" is a very useful one.
Please, let's STOP FEEDING THE TROLL.
Jim Carroll
I have little doubt that this will be passed off as "lies" and "a personal attack", but every single word I have written is verifiable and tucked away in varios parts of the archive of this forum.

Yesterday's Guardian.

"That series had been preceded in 1963 by AJP Taylor's rather vulgar book, The First World War: An Illustrated History, and Oh, What a Lovely War!, Joan Littlewood's musical pasquinade. The latter, which used the songs the Tommies had sung in the trenches, drew on Alan Clark's 1961 book The Donkeys – a largely fraudulent book, whose title derives from an invented quotation about "lions led by donkeys", that nevertheless made a mark.

Now the perception of the Great War that had formed in the late 1920s was strengthened all over again. Working-class lads had been sent like sheep to the slaughter by brutal and stupid generals, callously indifferent to the suffering they inflicted, a theme played much later and with repellent facetiousness by Blackadder. The upper classes as a whole stood condemned for wanton bloodshed."


The above was the first direct quotation from Geoffrey Wheatcroft's article in the Guardian by Keith A of Hertford and it is an accurate quote in all respects. PRIOR TO Keith A quoting that passage from Wheatcroft's article, there had been a link to the complete article posted by a GUEST. AFTER Keith A's post there was no other mention of this article or reference to it by anyone else on the thread that was subsequently closed on or round the 18th December, 2014.

So Shaw in which two threads did Keith a according to you make these false claims? (My bet folks is that Shaw will ignore this question and go desperately quiet on the subject - We may however be regaled at length on the subject of what next will be projected from between the cheeks his arse)

Not going to argue about conjecture, but if it is conjecture you want, your premise is doubtful as the relevant passage was subsequently quoted in full five times later in that thread, who is to say that that would not have happened at least once without Shaw's intervention.

Still doesn't get round Shaw's subsequent deliberate barefaced lies and misrepresentation which it appears does not matter to you at all, but as a proven lying bastard it does tend to colour my opinion of anything he posts.

On another of your pals misrepresentations - No IDF soldier massacred any inhabitants of any refugee camp - Another Shaw lie you don't seem fussed about.

Your pal Jim Carroll tried to say that the Israelis secretly disposed of 3,500 bodies by burying under a sports stadium they constructed in Beirut in 1982. Carroll misrepresents these claims as what he calls verified fact citing eye-witnesses who by their own accounts if you read them saw nothing of the sort. Other easily demonstrated discrepancies regarding this fairy-tale of Carroll's are:

1: Nobody was taken to the Camille Chamoun Stadium until after the massacre by the Christian Phalange Militia had ended.

2: The Israelis constructed nothing on that site at the time. The Stadium had been destroyed by them as the PLO used it as an ammunition dump.

3: Destroyed in 1982 the Stadium was not rebuilt until 1997, when it was completely rebuilt by British and Lebanese engineers - In that total rebuild no bodies, or human remains were unearthed - very strange that considering there were supposed to be 3,500 bodies buried there in haste and in secret in 1982.

4: The stadium was further improved and reinforced so that it could withstand an earthquake of 8.6 on the Richter scale in 2015, that work involved extensive and very deep ground works, and yet, as in 1997 no bodies, or human remains were unearthed.

Now all of that Gnome suggests to me that there were no bodies buried under the Camille Chamoun Sports Stadium as described by Jim Carroll and that the whole story was a fabrication, a lie.

Well Gnome, talking about missing the point and misrepresentation, as these things seem important to you between trips to the pantry. Here's the exchange once again:

SHAW'S WHEATCROFT SAGA

How Steve Shaw "makes up shit" and what an acknowledgement and correction of an error looks like:

On the 10th December, 2014 the following text was faithfully and accurately posted by Keith A of Hertford in a thread titled "WWI was No Mans Land" from an article by Geoffrey Wheatcroft that appeared in the Guardian, 9 Dec 2014

"That series had been preceded in 1963 by AJP Taylor's rather vulgar book, The First World War: An Illustrated History, and Oh, What a Lovely War!, Joan Littlewood's musical pasquinade. The latter, which used the songs the Tommies had sung in the trenches, drew on Alan Clark's 1961 book The Donkeys – a largely fraudulent book, whose title derives from an invented quotation about "lions led by donkeys", that nevertheless made a mark."

This thread was closed on 18th December but the discussion continued on another WWI thread titled "I am not an historian but ..." in which Keith A made a passing reference to the passage quoted above on the 17th December, 2014

The Guardian last week described the work of Clark and Taylor as "fraudulent."

Steve Shaw questioned this and within an hour of Steve Shaw posting Keith A of Hertford replied as follows:

From: Keith A of Hertford - PM
Date: 17 Dec 14 - 11:22 AM

The Guardian printed a piece, by a Guardian correspondent, that described Taylor and Clark's work as "vulgar" and "fraudulent" respectively.
[Further correction making clear what adjective applied to which author's work]

After the above acknowledgment and correction had been given in the "I am not an historian but ...." thread the complete passage from Wheatcroft's article was posted five times which when you couple that to the speed of Keith A's response and correction blows the Shaw theory of it being deliberate misrepresentation clear out of the water - and yet Shaw to this day still attempts to convey the idea that no acknowledgement and correction was ever made, which of course is a downright LIE.

I am quite prepared to discuss things that have happened. I have not interest in discussing points based on conjecture. What we can see clearly is that for three years now Steve Shaw has deliberately misrepresented straight facts about the exchange quoted above by telling barefaced lies and that seems to be a point that you Gnome have missed by a Kerry Mile.

Of course Keith wouldn't have issued a correction had he not been challenged. It would have stood for ever more, and that was his clear intent as he'd made the false claim in two threads. Clear intent to deceive. It isn't as if the original article was complicated or difficult to interpret, Dave. Dead simple. "Taylor rather vulgar and Clark largely fraudulent" became "Taylor and Clark fraudulent." That is no accident. Even Keith isn't thick enough to do that by accident, and he did it twice. Still, it must be OK because Teribus, nitpicker-in-chief with the rest of us, excused it as being a "passing reference." 😂 And, Bill, I didn't say that the IDF carried out the slaughter, as much as you'd like me to have done. All there in the thread!

By the way, Dave, I prevailed on the wine front with Mrs Steve. A heavy day in the garden shifting one ton of hardcore, one ton of gravel and one ton of topsoil led me into a deserving state. Washed down the cold lamb, jacket spud with lashings of butter and purple sprouting beautifully. Cheers!

Cause and effect. Those guilty of these crimes were tried under a new law. Why do you think that new law was introduced? Just for fun maybe? Or perhaps it was to cover cases such as these. Why has it only been used those few times? Maybe it has served as a deterrent or perhaps it only ever intended to catch these cases which may have otherwise fallen through the net. Once again we are faced with facts that can be interpreted in a number of ways. Keith and friends chose to interpret them as an indication that travelers are some sort of modern day slave traders. Those more open minded realise that such facts can be indicative of many things other than the right wing agenda driven demonisation of people.

So, Teribus, do you think for one minute that Keith would have posted the correction if Steve had not pulled him up on the misrepresentation?

I was happy to concede the discrepancy, but there was no deceit and I had already given the full quote. Wheatcroft had the same view as me so I did not need to misrepresent anything, and I did not.

No. I raised it as an example of how Israel's enemies lie, along with the example of the Marmara. The exact figures do not matter, only that there was no deliberate killing of civilians or body hiding. They lied about that in both examples, and undoubtedly about Sabra/Shatila too.

Francis Pym slated Israel for their actions at Sabra Shatila

He did not.
"Francis Pym, the British foreign secretary, cleared Israel of blame for the massacres at Sabra and Shatila,
two Palestinian refugee camps in Beirut, where, over two days in September 1982, a Lebanese Christian Phalangist militia killed as many as 3,500 people.
Having invaded Lebanon up to Beirut, Israel allied itself with some Christian militias fighting in the Lebanese civil war. During the massacres, the Israeli army had surrounded the camps and fired flares at night to illuminate the dark at the request of the Phalangists.
But Pym, writing an initial assessment in September 1982, said Israel had been guilty only of "incompetence, miscalculation, overeagerness to clear out the remaining PLO and unwise dependence on undisciplined militia".

Steve,
The Israeli regime was responsible.

It was indirectly responsible, because it was the controlling power, but it played no role in the massacre.

Sharon's head rolled and he was the defence minister.

Again, only indirect responsibility.
Wiki,
"Israeli Defense Forces were indirectly responsible for the massacre since IDF troops held the area.[65] The commission determined that the killings carried out by a Phalangist unit acting on its own, but its entry was known to Israel and approved by Sharon."
"The commission also concluded that Sharon bore personal responsibility[65] "for ignoring the danger of bloodshed and revenge [and] not taking appropriate measures to prevent bloodshed".

That is Israel's version of events.
