Whiteman is the Villain: May is Lazy and Callous 59


Today’s televised select committee proceedings showed us clearly what had happened in the UK Border Agency. It is typical of what is happening throughout the Civil Service. A massively overpaid “Chief Executive”, Rob Whiteman, is parachuted in on £240,000 a year. He has never had a day’s experience as an immigration officer in his life.

He is placed over Brodie Clark, a man with over 30 years experience, who is head of the Border Force. Whiteman needs to stamp his authority on a force which probably at many levels resents a total outsider being brought in. Was Whiteman, of Barking and Dagenham local council, really that much more capable than all of the thousands of existing Border Force people who actually knows the work? Absolutely anybody could predict Whiteman’s next move – he gets rid of Clark.

He does it by conflating two things. The longstanding fact that at peak times border controls have to be relaxed or airports would overflow in sewerage and planes drop off the sky. And a targeted pilot scheme, that sounds rather sensible, to relax certain controls on certain people to allow better targeting.

Getting rid of Clark necessitates exaggerating the problems, something which an immigrant demonising media is ready to help with. But this causes problems for May as Home Secretary. Not caring about anything but her own career, she reacts by heaping huge loads of manure on Clark’s head.

Whiteman managed, in appearing before a select committee today, to come across as even more horrible than the Murdochs. That you and I are paying his huge salary is appalling. Almost appalling is that the “independent investigation” into what happened is being conducted by John Vine, who was a party to the decision to sack Clark, and a party to some of the correspondence and minutes which Whiteman refused to give the Select Commitee because he was giving it to Vine’s investigation.

Read that last sentence again. Yes, incredible but true. Yet another new low for government whitewash?

This thing stinks.

    The US Feds complaining they wont have enough “officers” on the ground come the Olympics?

    I don’t doubt that they’re unhappy.It’ll take alot of officers to really ensure their false flag ops go like clockwork.

    This Whiteman person sounds like a very nasty slug indeed.

    They way he shat all over Clark was nauseating.Clark was the only individual who has emerged in a plausible and dignified light in all of this.

    I’ve known the whiteman type all my life and loathe them.

    Yep he sounds exactly the Common Purpose type.Networking and toadying their only real skills,and shafting anyone who get in their way. I bet Whiteman specialises in “blue-sky thinking”,”solution led solutions in a challenging global market dynamic”.He will always “boil the frog” and considers himself “the fat man in the canoe” in an insanely vain manner.
    At the Xmas party he gets leery with anything in a skirt,sings Agadoo,vomits BEFORE going for a massive 4 course curry with his other Masonic brothers,and then sings gaudy bigoted songs on his slalomly unstately way home.

    His taxi is alwas on expenses,too,i’ve no doubt.

    Scum.

    Anders,
    The Saudi monarch used the poetic language of the Nejdi desert, urging Washington to “cut off the head of the snake”.
    Evidently Frank left his brains in Saudi as well as his mobility! The same “poetic” crap was said about Saddam.
    Alas Saddam had nothing to fight back with, and US nearly got whooped, and needed Putin to go on the telly and give moral support; “US cannot be defeated at this stage, it is not good for the world”.
    These wankers are insane, why are they not wearing their long armed jackets?

    Coming back recently from NYC to LHR it took me about an hour and a half to get through Immigration in London and I have a British passport. So much for open borders methinks.
    Only 6 UKBF officers on duty for what looked like at least three planes of passengers and then I was told to go to the automatic scanner line where I waited with a phalanx of grumbling Europeans for s poxy machine to scan my passport which it had to do four times.
    There was a group of Asian gentlemen on the same flight as me and thay had already cleared Immigration and were on thier way out just as I got to the carosel.
    At least in the USA they are a lot more professional and the TSA are trained to be polite when they are asking you about your trip to the US. No wonder I am emigrating.

    Who remembers the Cowboys and Indians films, when we were kids?

    Me and my cousins always rooted for the Indians.
    We saw the the Whiteman as the villain.
    And right now, I see this white man as the villain against the Indians he stops entering this country.
    These Indians come here to work, while the white man went to their country to invade, colonise, loot, pillage and enslave.

    You don’t get many ‘Indians’ coming here from the Americas, because the White man went over there to do the above as well as genocide. Not many ‘Indians’ left alive there to come here for Whiteman in the border agency to refuse them enter and deport them back to the country that the white man stole from them.

    Reminiscences of Old Barkingian:
    Tony Morris TGWU Convenor at Barking & Dagenham said, “Rob Whiteman, Chief Executive, has managed to earn himself a bad reputation among council staff wherever he has worked. At his old job in Lewisham before moving to Barking & Dagenham Council he was called ‘the jolly bastard’. His current staffs have christened him ‘Sir Humphrey Sponge Bob’.” [A reference to the popular Yes Minister TV character and the kids cartoon character Sponge Bob Smarty Pants].

    No doubt greasing his superiors and shitting on his subordinates played some part in inviting this comment.

    …Our elites have exposed their hand. They have nothing to offer.
    .
    They can destroy but they cannot build. They can repress but they cannot lead. They can steal but they cannot share. They can talk but they cannot speak. They are as dead and useless to us as the water-soaked books, tents, sleeping bags, suitcases, food boxes and clothes that were tossed by sanitation workers Tuesday morning into garbage trucks in New York City. They have no ideas, no plans and no vision for the future.
    .
    Our decaying corporate regime has strutted in Portland, Oakland and New York with their baton-wielding cops into a fool’s paradise. They think they can clean up “the mess”—always employing the language of personal hygiene and public security — by making us disappear. They think we will all go home and accept their corporate nation, a nation where crime and government policy have become indistinguishable, where nothing in America, including the ordinary citizen, is deemed by those in power worth protecting or preserving, where corporate oligarchs awash in hundreds of millions of dollars are permitted to loot and pillage the last shreds of collective wealth, human capital and natural resources, a nation where the poor do not eat and workers do not work, a nation where the sick die and children go hungry, a nation where the consent of the governed and the voice of the people is a cruel joke.

    Get back into your cages, they are telling us. Return to watching the lies, absurdities, trivia and celebrity gossip we feed you in 24-hour cycles on television. Invest your emotional energy in the vast system of popular entertainment. Run up your credit card debt. Pay your loans. Be thankful for the scraps we toss. Chant back to us our phrases about democracy, greatness and freedom. Vote in our rigged political theater. Send your young men and women to fight and die in useless, unwinnable wars that provide corporations with huge profits. Stand by mutely as our bipartisan congressional super committee, either through consensus or cynical dysfunction, plunges you into a society without basic social services including unemployment benefits. Pay for the crimes of Wall Street.

    I to witnessed the attempted verbal assassination of Brodie Clark and it reminded me of the third degree given to Dr David Kelly PBUH by the Foreign Affairs Committee. Like David, Brodie was grilled as to who had given him authority to exercise his own judgement.
    .
    The stench of conspiracy was obvious. I am also with Brodie.

    Spot on Mary, Monti was a former adviser to Goldman Sachs Group Inc.
    .
    Time to remember the words of Bettino Craxi who in 1992, told parliament that everybody in Italian politics was corrupt.

    Time to remind ourselves of bygone election run-ups and how agent Cameron et.al managed to raise over £5 million in just 2 months; a large proportion of that suddenly coming in from Finance and Healthcare companies.

    You people seem to be wasted separated by walls or licencees. But you seem open to dissimulation and misdirection. Try this, I suggested to the male head organ of the IMF’s own lawyer he might suggest the guy or his victim or both were under the influence of Monarch Programming. And he got off! Then a head of immigration somewhere in the USA was up for cleansing. I suggested he or his victim might be so compromised, separating actus rea from mens rea or in other words a set up undetectable because of brainwashing. I forgot to see what followed. And I said the same thing to the UK Head of Immigration’s employers ( oops, ) and await his fate completely unsure if it was to replace him with a Monarch Programmed ( or maybe Common Purpose?) drone. I understand from web surfing border agencies need controlling because there is a hidden trafficking economy, for whom for example green emerald earrings can say…let me pass..I am carrying something very important” and the staff will, whether aware or subconsciously have their heads turned away. I am kinda guessing about this, but the traces are here and there….Think of the film Johnny English Reborn ( I think it was) where someone on a mission says something and it receives (triggers is my point) a reply which facilitates entry. Ah, this is all too much but those that are on to it are being replaced at all levels? Maybe I should keep within my own compass. Er, please Google “How tall was Mengele?”
