Green Leader Caroline Links to Westminster Declaration!!!

My apologies to Caroline Lucas who earlier today was linked to the Westminster Declaration! I put up a post on this, having checked with Westminster2010, they confirmed she had indeed signed the pledge. Having re-checked her name on the list of those supporting the pledge, her status has now been altered to anti.

The mistake was not mine but the organisers of the Declaration.

The Declaration says:
[We] refuse to comply with any directive that compels us to participate in or facilitate abortion, embryo-destructive research, assisted suicide, euthanasia, or any other act that involves intentionally taking innocent human life.

We pledge to support marriage – the lifelong covenantal union of one man and one woman as husband and wife.
We believe it [marriage] is divinely ordained, the only context for sexual intercourse, and the most important unit for sustaining the health, education, and welfare of all. We call on government to honour, promote and protect marriage and we refuse to submit to any edict forcing us to equate any other form of sexual partnership with marriage.

We will seek to ensure that religious liberty and freedom of conscience are unequivocally protected against interference by the state and other threats, not only to individuals but also to institutions including families, charities, schools and religious communities. We will not be intimidated by any cultural or political power into silence or acquiescence and we will reject measures that seek to over-rule our Christian consciences or to restrict our freedoms to express Christian beliefs, or to worship and obey God.

Ms Lucas signing the Westminster declaration has come as a big surprise and being charitable I can only believe she did this thinking it was something else!

Last week I emailed her on her views on the human rights of the unborn. (She seems to be strong in human rights for all sorts of causes - except sadly the unborn) Following her reply I informed her that I could not vote for her either.

All parties are getting desperate for votes. I have just had yet another canvasser at the door (I've lost count how many I have had now - all except the zombie I think) trying to convince me to vote for his candidate. Why do they always turn up when we are the least prepared?

I'd like to clarify that I have NOT signed this pledge, and I have asked for my name to be removed. I was asked by a constituent whether I supported the right to freedom of religious expression. I confirmed that I did, and have done work on this in the European Parliament, on behalf of all religions and none.

This is something I would continue to stand up for, if elected as MP.

We can only assume that my reply has been used to suggest that I support their pledge - whereas the freedom of religious expression is the only part of it with which I agree.

Caroline Lucas has categorically confirmed via twitter that she has not signed this declaration, and is currently attempting to have her name removed.

Deeply misleading at this stage in the campaign and an apparent total misrepresentation of the candidate's views.

She might win the seat by the Duckworth-Lewis rule.And England can win the World Cup

Jon said...

this is actually not true
if you look up her name on the Westminster declaration site it is listed as not having signed
not sure where you got this from

Caroline Lucas has NOT signed the Westminster declaration.

She explicitly denies it here: http://twitter.com/CarolineLucas/status/13438696335

Also, her name clearly appears at http://www.westminster2010.org.uk/candidates/
stating that she has refused to pledge or are not supportive

I HAVE NOW ALTERED THIS POST
Ms Lucas' name no longer appears as a supporter of the Declaration.

Ah, well, then. Looks like the Green Party over there, is like the Green Party over here. They'll cry over people beating a seal's head in, but not particularly give a flip about human dead babies! More protection for plant life, and fishes and beasts of burden than humans!

Whatever....

cb said...

Good work Father. You had the Green Party in a cyber spin for five minutes. I love the fact that there waiting in the twitter wings was Charlotte Vere ready to pounce had it been true. This whole story is a massive error on someone's behalf. Now begs the question, so who did sign her up for the declaration? It also doesn't look good for the credibility of the Westminster declaration. Caroline Lucas' support was clearly linked in error so which other MPs are misrepresented?

Also interesting to note that The Argus practically have you on speed-dial. Jo Wadsworth (Argos journo) must read absolutely everything you write. I guess it's much cheaper than having a subscription to Reuters.

Dear Father Ray Blake

Your picture of Caroline Lucus with Peter Tatchell really is one for the Brighton Combination scrapbook.

Adrian Ross is PPC for the Green Party here in London's Bexleyheath & Crayford constituency.

After voting this morning at both General, and Local Elections, I informed Adrian Ross that the Polling Station on the Larner Road Estate where I live is a Christian Church. As is 'usual' the Baptist Minister Bob Morgan cast the very first vote at 7am this morning in 'his' building. As I was 2nd in the public queue, that was made to wait while Bexley Council's polling staff allowed Mr Morgan to exercise his "prerogative", I made a very loud comment for everybody to hear about the "vicar pushing in again".

Your Brighton Catholic prayers for London would be greatly appreciated. Former Met Police Inspector Michael Barnbrook, the malevolent neo-Nazi BNP Police Spokesman, has bottled out of standing as a candidate for MP in Father Finigan's Our Lady of the Rosary Parish, Blackfen ("PAPA RATZI ORA PRO NOBIS!"), which is in the late Sir Edward Heath's Old Bexley & Sidcup constituency, and he has run away to hide in Dagenham & Rainham, where the shadow of the odious BNP leader Nick Griffin is casting it's sinister spell of darkness over Barking. Unfortunately Michael Barnbrook BNP will still be standing for Bexley Council in the East Wickham Ward.

At today's General Election former Met Police Inspector Michael Barnbrook, the malevolent neo-Nazi BNP Police Spokesman, will be standing as a candidate for MP in the Dagenham and Rainham Parliamentary constituency. Nick Griffin MEP, the BNP's leader will be standing as a candidate for MP in the neighbouring Parliamentary constituency of Barking. The BNP are also putting up candidates in all three London Borough of Bexley constituencies : Stephen James in Bexleyheath and Crayford : Kevin Saunders in Erith & Thamesmead : John Brooks in Old Bexley and Sidcup. The BNP Parliamentary AGENT FROM HELL 666, for Bexley's Parliamentary constituencies 999 +, is Mr Michael Barnbrook, 24 Holbeach Gardens, Sidcup, Kent DA15 8QW, which is on the doorstep of Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Primary School in Blackfen +

Our Lady of the Rosary pray for us in BNP leader Nick Griffin MEP's EU/GLA/LDA/ODA NEO-NAZI DEVELOPMENT TIMES Amen

Yours sincerely

Well, there ya go! If it hadn't have been for that retraction of yours (which granted you had to do!) Caroline might not have won if they thought she'd been pro-life!

Dear Father Ray Blake

Thank you for your powerful Brighton Catholic prayers for London, and the General Election.

Nick Griffin, and the BNP were totally humiliated here in the Capital, and with the help of your blog we completely exposed their evil 'Planning for Real', which seriously threatened the peace in Father Finigan's Parish, Our Lady of the Rosary, plus the whole of Father Finigan's Bexley Deanery too i.e.. The BNP Parliamentary AGENT FROM HELL 666, for Bexley's Parliamentary constituencies 999 +, was former Met Police Inspector, and malevolent neo-Nazi BNP Police Spokesman, Mr Michael Barnbrook of 24 Holbeach Gardens, Sidcup, Kent DA15 8QW, which is on the doorstep of Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Primary School in Blackfen +

I have posted a message CONGRATULATIONS TO CAROLINE LUCAS & THE GREEN PARTY on the Friends Reunited UK General Election messageboard:

I'm sure Caroline Lucas will make a positive change to the dynamic at Westminster, and I am looking forward to hearing her sing between the lines i.e.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0PhmnyFVrkand

Green Darren Johnson has done a great job as Chair of the London Assembly, and his brave support for my FOOTBALL AGAINST RACISM IN EUROPE legal case 1991-2010 has proved to be invaluable.

I have also posted a comment on the same Friends Reunited post giving credit to http://marymagdalen.blogspot.com/2010/05/brightons-green-candidate-signs.html

PAPA RATZI ORA PRO NOBIS!

Our Lady of the Rosary pray for us!

vesp: I laugh at how vexed you were that the BNP actually had a snowball's chance in hades of winning zippity-do-dah.

Amongst the 3 of them I don't think they'd have a chance of overtaking the ladies' loo at Paddington station, much less a government.

Dear Father Ray Blake

Our Lady of the Assumption is the Roman Catholic Church in poor Deptford where I was born.

In the 1987/88 football season I was working as a site agent in Albury Street,Deptford SE8. This early Thames Gateway regeneration project involving English Heritage and the Church of England's Guardian of Walsingham, the late Canon David Diamond of St Paul's SE8, stimulated my creative and artistic talents.

Midway through the underpinning and demolition contract that I was supervising for PGM developments I had a big dream in which Our Lady of the Assumption called me "Vesper " (not vesp).

I have used this nom de plume ever since.

GOTO (gemoftheocean) should be aware that the BNP have two MEP's, a seat on the London Assembley , and until yesterday they had 12 Councillors in Barking.

The hatemongers already wield power, and this rise to high political office has been shadowed by a malevolent cover up relating to associated legal developments here in South East London, where the BNP HQ/Bookshop was once located, and where the BNP leadership were allowed to use the Old Addeyans FC/ Densitron International PLC clubhouse development for their 'Planning for Real' , propaganda meetings aka HATEGEI$T.

As a qualified surveyor, I have provided Father Finigan with a 'State of the Art' update with regard to my individual Londoner's case for the defence against NF/BNP entry-ism into Europe's 'Planning for Real' arena 1991-2010.

Yesterday Father Finigan posted a comment on his blog 'The hermeneutic of continuity', titled "Election - morning after", in which he states 'Worryingly, the BNP increased their share of the vote here, but Nick Griffin was soundly defeated in Barking, coming third. Interestingly, he said that with a "normal" turnout, the BNP would have taken the Council. Whether that is true or not, they may well have won more wards in the local election if there had been a smaller turnout. This is an important lesson for those who did not bother to vote'.

At the General Election former Met Police Inspector Michael Barnbrook, the malevolent neo-Nazi BNP Police Spokesman, stood as a candidate for MP in the Dagenham and Rainham Parliamentary constituency. Nick Griffin MEP, the BNP's leader stood as a candidate for MP in the neighbouring Parliamentary constituency of Barking. The BNP are also put up candidates in all three London Borough of Bexley constituencies : Stephen James in Bexleyheath and Crayford : Kevin Saunders in Erith & Thamesmead : John Brooks in Old Bexley and Sidcup.

I would be failing in my professional 'duty of care' if I failed to identify, and actively oppose the evil on the doorstep of Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Primary School in Blackfen +

Our Lady of the Rosary pray for us in BNP leader Nick Griffin MEP's EU/GLA/LDA/ODA NEO-NAZI DEVELOPMENT TIMES Amen

GOTO;
I'm seriously impressed ! Your comment about Ms Lucas' win is timed at 06:01 on Friday 07 May.

The Declaration took place at approximately 05:55 in Brighton . . . if you could post a comment from San Diego within six minutes, clearly Bad News Travels Fast ! :-)

Dear Father Ray Blake

As a poor green man from London, I have in recent years been in receipt of great NHS dental work from the Creek Road Dental Practice practice that has saved me from dentures. I have also received a Social Fund loan for a new mattress for my old www.penrose.org.uk bed.

In Brighton George and Laurence have covered 'Sweet Caroline' and dedicated it to Caroline Lucas MP http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dgxhSEBEJwM&feature=player_embedded

They are also thinking of starting an online busking operation on Laurence's blog http://thatthebonesyouhavecrushedmaythrill.blogspot.com/ in order to get a new mattress for George's bed and raise money for dental implants for George as he can't wear dentures, he's on benefits like me, so if you know any dentists out there who want to raise the profile of their business, Laurence will advertise their services on his blog with before and after photographs...
