Undercover British police having secret sex?

Oct 25 2013, 9:46am CDT | by IANS

London, Oct 25 (IANS) Britain's senior most police officer has said he is unsure if undercover officers are still not getting involved in sexual relationships with partners unfamiliar with their real identities.

London, Oct 25 — Britain's senior most police officer has said he is unsure if undercover officers are still not getting involved in sexual relationships with partners unfamiliar with their real identities.

Eleven women are taking legal action against the Metropolitan Police over claims that they were duped into relationships in the past with undercover officers and suffered emotional trauma after discovering the deception, The Guardian reported.

On Thursday, Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, the commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, said his force had guidelines that said police spies should not get involved in sexual relationships but that the rules could not prevent "human beings sometimes failing".

Under questioning from a London Assembly police and crime committee member, he said he could not be sure if officers had not continued to get involved in intimate relationships during his two years as commissioner.

"Our policy says it shouldn't, but can I be absolutely confident that it's never happened during my time as commissioner? I can't say that.

"What I can tell you is that we've got things in place via supervision and monitoring to make our best attempt to make it clear to our officers that it shouldn't, and if it does, to tell us.

"I'm confident of that, but I cannot be absolutely sure that there has not been the odd digression, or that there won't be in the future. But I do know that there's less chance of it now than there was 20 years ago."

Police chiefs and ministers have given contradictory answers about whether undercover officers were authorised to form sexual relationships with people they had been sent to spy on.

The Guardian has published evidence hinting that undercover officers routinely started sexual relationships with political campaigners during an infiltration campaign that began in 1968.

The Prime Minister of Samoa has launched a heartfelt plea in the Guardian newspaper on behalf of his allegedly drowning Pacific nation. (H/T Bufo 75) Unless concerted international action is taken to deal with the threat of 'climate change', apparently, small islands like his will be "inundated by rising sea levels."

CREDIT: Shutterstock The world’s collective capacity to generate renewable power grew at its fastest annual pace ever last year, the Guardian reported on Thursday.

Aug 29 2014 9:22am CDT | Source: Big Government

Although White House officials have seemingly declared “Mission Accomplished” in the effort to rescue the Yazidis on Mt. Sinjar, the ethno-religious tribe remains completely defenseless and continually under siege by the Islamic State terror group, The Guardian reports. Satellite imagery, combined with first-hand accounts, have compiled to display that, indeed, there is still a humanitarian crisis on Mt. Sinjar. Additionally, thousands have, in desperation, made the dangerous journey ...

Muslim Gang Rapists are Springing Up Everywhere. Why Can't We Be Honest About It?

Aug 27 2014 4:38am CDT | Source: Big Government

The notorious Sydney gang rapes in 2000 were committed by Lebanese Australians. Muslim men raped women and girls as young as 14. Australia, being a sensible sort of place, identified that the rapists were targeting white girls and branded these monstrous acts "racially-motivated hate crimes."  Because that's what they were: one ethnicity was specifically targeting another. The Australian girls were vulnerable, and they ...
