Cannabis Law Reform (CLEAR) Statutorily Deregistered by the Electoral Commission.
Author: Kevin John Braid
In a week of first class twattery from Peter Reynolds, I thought there would be little more to write about. Sarah McCulloch and James Collins had already superbly documented the loss of his libel action in the Royal Courts of Justice against Sarah.
That said, the bellendery of Peter Reynolds knows no bounds and it has just came to light that last month CLEAR were ‘Statutorily Deregistered’ as a UK political party. Thanks to Liam for sending us this info:
It says that that they were ‘Statutorily Deregistered’. Hitting the little question mark next to that field says “Deregistered parties will either have a status of Voluntarily Deregistered if they chose to remove themselves from the register or Statutorily Deregistered if they were removed by the Electoral Commission for a compliance breach.”
You get that folks, it says Cannabis Law Reform were ‘Statutorily Deregistered’. Yet no mention of this fact they were no longer a registered political party on the CLEAR web site, that is not until today, when their ‘About Us’ page was coincidentally altered on the same day the story about their Statutory Deregistration as a UK political party broke out on social media.
Unfortunately, for the fraudster Reynolds, Google keeps a cache of pages, which is like a photographic snapshot in time of a web page the last time the site was crawled by Google. The last cache of their ‘About us” page taken on 29th November 2013 clearly states they are a registered political party and this was only changed today after it was brought to light on social media they were Statutorily Deregistered on 5th November 2013.
Is it legal to claim to be a registered political party when you are not? One suspects not. Would CLEAR have come clean had this info not been exposed on Facebook? I doubt it.
Let’s see what Führer Reynolds has to say about this, he was asked on CLEAR’s Facebook page and we took a screen shot.
When asked by Phil Walsh if it is true that CLEAR has been removed as a political party and has not existed for around a month now? CLEAR replies:
“No Phil, that is incorrect. We have not renewed our registration with the Electoral Commission because following extensive discussions during our recent general meeting we have no current plans to stand in elections. This has no effect on our other activities.”
In that case, why is the Electoral Commission stating they were ‘Statutorily Deregistered’?
Unsurprisingly, Phil was fobbed off and the question not answered. So either the Electoral Commission are lying by stating Cannabis Law Reform were ‘Statutorily Deregistered’, or a political party lead by a conman with a track record of proven lies is lying by stating they voluntarily deregistered with the Electoral Commission.
I know whom my money’s on as to who is telling porky pies.
