Britain may not have a constitution or any dignity or justice when it comes to the English Legal System and judicial practice but, there is one thing that is set and has been done a particular way for a very long time. That is the way in which allegations are dealt with.
Despite what you may think, in the UK you are guilty until proven guilty, and all aspects of the legal process follow this. When an allegation is made, the alleged criminal is arrested, ruffed up by the ‘bobbies’ thrown in a cell for 24 hours and if not sent to prison on remand, they are bailed pending a full and more often than not totally corrupt investigation.
During this time on bail it is a media free for all to attack the alleged criminal in full force, as long as the word alleged is used and maintained. Even once the ‘criminal’ is ‘cleared’ of all allegations, they remain archived in the media as ‘alleged’ criminal.
So why, does this not apply to David Cameron, who is after all, not above the law.
The allegations that Mr. Cameron committed an act of oral sex with a pig whilst studying at university is not just some wild allegation from an angry and deranged member of the public.
The allegation comes from British nobility, Lord Ashcroft, whom claims to have photographic and/or video evidence of the incident.
After it became clear that the the public would not accept silence from the government Downing Street finally released a statement:
The prime minister’s official spokeswoman said Lord Ashcroft had himself set out his reasons for writing the allegations – a reference to No 10’s counter allegation that it was fuelled by a desire for personal revenge.
Under US law any potential material that could be used to discredit or change the public opinion of an individual automatically bars them from government security clearance for the top job as President. The same law applies in the UK, Cameron himself has tried to block the progression of Labour leader Corbyn by using the fact that Corbyn was arrested for protesting against the South African apartheid in his younger days against him.
So if Cameron was to follow his own laws, to which he is not exempt; there should be a full investigation and his security clearance should be revoked, meaning he is no longer eligible for the position of PM.
However, the chances of the PM actually following the law are very slim. Instead it would appear that Downing Street are simply going to try and pretend the allegations were never made. Despite the growing number of protests demanding the resignation of Mr. Cameron.
