Norman Baker quits

Post by sallypelt on 03.11.14 22:30

Norman Baker, Home Office Minister, has quit. Norman Baker is the author of The Strange Death of David Kelly. No further information as to why he's resigned at this moment in time.

More on Norman Baker's resignation:

Liberal Democrat MP Norman Baker has resigned as a home office minister, saying working in the department was like "walking through mud".

Mr Baker told the Independent that Home Secretary Theresa May saw the Lib Dems as a "cuckoo in the nest".

The MP for Lewes was appointed to the Home Office in October 2013.

Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg described him as a "brilliant minister".

Interesting suggestion that many Lib Dems are going to quite their Ministerial posts before the election, so that they can campaign on a 'pure' LibDem ticket, rather than being inextricably linked to the coalition.
Makes sense.

Yeah quit their ministerial roles before the election, but I for one will not forget the  tripling of  uni fees and the bedroom tax etc.

I think quite a few lib/dems will be very lucky indeed to get re-elected next year.

That's a shame. Norman Baker is the only MP of whom I'm aware that seems to be interested in uncovering things. For example, we were secretly being sprayed with lethal substances -- we may still be, but we're not allowed to access the information anymore, it would seem:

http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2002/apr/21/uk.medicalscience

This excerpt is a good example of things that should be heeded by those who feel safe in the knowledge that if sinister things were happening, no normal person would lie or at least someone in the group would feel obliged to come forward with the truth (or the papers would be all over it, etc.):

"Sue Ellison, spokeswoman for Porton Down, said: 'Independent reports by eminent scientists have shown there was no danger to public health from these releases which were carried out to protect the public.
'The results from these trials_ will save lives, should the country or our forces face an attack by chemical and biological weapons.'
Asked whether such tests are still being carried out, she said: 'It is not our policy to discuss ongoing research.'"

For the record, I recently found out that, with much reluctance, someone confirmed that the skies are still being sprayed with dangerous substances. The reasoning they offered was rather strange, to say the least, but not as much as the fact that it seemingly hadn't occurred to them that they would be adversely affected, too. Cognitive dissonance makes the world a truly strange place.
