The Fright of the Tyrants

It is clear that there is and has been no pandemic, with 2020 35th out of the last 50 years in terms of UK deaths per 100,000 of population. The government is, with its bogus “advisors” and the encouragement of the Gates organisation, the bought media and big tech companies (who are coining it in from all this), trying to keep the plates spinning in front of an audience that is rapidly awakening to the enormity of the lies that have been purveyed to them over the last year. And the government fright is now palpable.

The extension of furlough payments right through to the Autumn tells us two things: firstly that these criminals are determined to hold on to their egregious behaviour, and secondly that they know that without the payment of the Dane Geld their hides will soon be nailed to the doors of Westminster Hall.

And now, to accompany the Dane Geld, a direct assault on the citizen’s single most effective right against an over-mighty or evil government – the right to non-violent protest. I quote Jolyon Maugham of the Good Law Project from his email today:

Other than at a General Election – an event occurring at five-yearly intervals that hands unconstrained power to a Party that wins a majority – a citizen has but one way of registering dissent at what is done in their name: the right to protest. Yesterday the Government announced its intention to legislate that right out of meaningful existence.

The legislative proposal comes in the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill 2021. It grapples with everything from road traffic offences to confected culture war issues like the protection of war memorials. But it also contains provisions that should concern each and every one of us. 

Silencing dissent

High-profile protests around Brexit, the Black Lives Matter movement, and the climate crisis have been thorns in the Government’s side over the last couple of years. By and large, these protests have been peaceful and have acted as effective ways for people to express their dissatisfaction with the Government. 

However, the Home Secretary, in particular, doesn’t seem to like dissenting voices – nor does she want to engage with the root causes of these protests, preferring instead to brand protesters “so-called eco-crusaders turned criminals” and to accuse them of “hooliganism and thuggery”. 

The Government’s proposed solution? To clamp down hard on the right to protest. The Bill as it stands would give sweeping new powers to the police to restrict peaceful protests – including by giving them the powers to set conditions on the duration of protests, set maximum noise levels, and put restrictions on where protests can take place. As it seems to us, the very purpose of the right to protest is to enable people to register their profound unhappiness or strength of feeling in a way which compels the State to respond. To legislate so that right cannot have any impact is to legislate it out of meaningful existence.

Let no-one mistake what we are dealing with. The corruption that is supporting the evil – yes, evil- few against the many is widespread, but not every person who has met corruption represents the strand of evil that has constructed this attack upon us. Each one of us has corruption built in to us, and it is the recognition of that that can either lift us up to the stars or plunge us into the hell inhabited by those who wish humanity to lose its individuation,. to cease to be human at all.
