Seriousness and Urgency

Copied to numerous journalists and others, this has just been sent to the Chief Constable of Durham Constabulary:

Dear Mr Barton,

As has now appeared in at least one national daily newspaper, at five o’clock on the afternoon of Monday 2nd July, I wrote to Durham Constabulary to report formally the numerous criminal offences committed by the former Prime Minister Tony Blair, by the former Foreign Secretary Jack Straw, and by a large number of others, as set out in the previous week’s reports of the Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament into the treatment of detainees and into the involvement of British agencies in the practice of rendition.

24 hours later, having received no response, I wrote to you as Chief Constable, to request a crime number, “and to ensure that this matter is progressed.” Yet there has been no response to that, either. Not least because Durham Constabulary is uniquely rated Outstanding by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary, I am again writing to seek that it treat this matter with the seriousness and urgency that it deserves, beginning with the interview under caution of Mr Blair and of Mr Straw, and with the issuing to me of a crime number. Anything less would be a matter for the Independent Office for Police Conduct.

Yours sincerely,

David Lindsay

There is going to be another hung Parliament. We need our people to hold the balance of power in it. I need £10,000 in order to stand for Parliament with any chance of winning. My crowdfunding page has been taken down without my knowledge or consent. But you can still email instead, and that address accepts PayPal.
