Britain Today

Every time NuLabour supplies the Police with more power to harass, search, arrest, detain or otherwise deprive us of our hard won liberties. The British people are told that such powers will only be used against extremists, yobs, drunken louts and anti social people. Well rather shockingly (or not) the police have been using their new powers against the aforementioned groups (except of course these extremists because they are scarred shitless by The Religion of Peace®). The problem is they are now also using them against nice law abiding people. At least they would be law abiding if it weren't for the fact Nulab keeps making things illegal.

Since 1997 Nulab has placed over 700 new criminal offenses on the statute books. In their frenzy of legislating the gov has introduced numerous badly drafted not to mention pointless laws. Most will gather dust, rarely if ever used. Other laws like the recent incitement to religious hatred bill will also rarely be used. Simply passing the law has done what the gov intended, chilled freespeech of non Muslims and bought votes in marginal NuLab constituencies with big blocks of traditionally Labour voting Muslims. This is of course electioneering by legislating rather than legislating in the interest of the British public as a whole. A concept presumably alien to any contemporary socialist only interested in victim groups and minorities.

Seemingly desperate to be seen doing something the Gov spews out new initiatives, consultations and unnecessary laws, all the time centralizing power in the office of Prime Minister and his unelected cronies. bLiar ever the political genius is creating a sort democratic dictatorship in which the Sun and the Daily Mail say jump and Mr bLiar seems to say "how high?" The fact is real freedom seems to be a somewhat abstract notion to a people kept in fear by a gov becoming addicted to power. We should of course be afraid of the threat that Islam poses to European freedoms. However we must not let the fear agenda be used by Nulab in its hopefully doomed attempt to create a system in which it can crush all but the most benign forms of dissent from how Nulab and its apparachniks want Britain to resemble. They want total control of the populace and the detail of peoples lives. Perry De Havilland on the "Radical Centre":
The Radical Centre seem to have the same obsession with control that the fascists and communists had but unlike them, it is control for control's sake rather than in the service of some clear ideology: there is no Blairite or Clintonite (or even 'Bushite') 'The Communist Manifesto' or 'Mein Kampf'. They do not seek the triumph of Volk or the dictatorship of the proletariat, they just seek to replace all social interactions with politically mediated interactions. They seek to regulate everything via a total state that does not organise mass rallies or collectivise farms, it just wants a world in which nothing whatsoever is private, everything is political. Their symbol is not the Hammer and Sickle or the Swastika, it is the CCTV camera.

The Radical Centre has also been called 'Authoritarian Populism' because it seeks to impose the popular will by force and it does not much care what that will is. Just as liberty for liberty's own sake is the objective of the Classical Liberal/Libertarian rather than some 'overarching narrative' as was the case with the radical statist left and statist right in the corpse filled 20th century, the Radical Centre seek control for control's own sake with no particular grand reason in mind other than to perpetuate a political class whose reason for existence is to make decisions about other people's lives.
Wake up from you slumber Britain.

As Of This Week Illegal In The UK

This funny flash animation sticks two fingers to Islam in a somewhat bigoted fashion. If it were posted on the BNP's website they would surely be prosecuted for incitement to religious hatred. Thanks to the internet and the fact that the good-ole-US-of-A still has free speech enshrined in it's constitution you can watch it too (it is hosted on an Floridian server).

The cartoon is of course juvenile in the way that it groups Muslims together, but it is done for comic effect. The BBC's very own comedy The Vicar Of Dibley does exactly the same with Anglicans. Which rather makes the point of the cartoon very well. That nobody gives a shit about offending other faiths because no other world religion can muster the kind of mass outbursts of hate and violence that Muslims and the Islamic world can muster.

While the rest of Europe stood up for free speech over the last few weeks. Our leaders cravenly continued in reducing our civil rights. Simply because some Labour seats are in Muslim areas (think Straw Man himself) so Islamic sensibilities are put before traditional British rights like free speech. The cartoon is available in larger format here.

Winston Pedicts Britain Under Socialism

This text is from Winston Churchill's first party election broadcast in 1945. It is simply excellent (italics my emphasis) :
My friends, I must tell you that a Socialist policy is abhorrent to the British ideas of freedom. Although it is now put forward in the main by people who have a good grounding in the Liberalism and Radicalism of the early part of this century, there can be no doubt that Socialism is inseparably interwoven with Totalitarianism and the abject worship of the State. It is not alone that property, in all its forms, is struck at, but that liberty, in all its forms, is challenged by the fundamental conceptions of Socialism.

Look how even to-day they hunger for controls of every kind, as if these were delectable foods instead of war-time inflictions and monstrosities. There is to be one State to which all are to be obedient in every act of their lives. This State is to be the arch-employer, the arch-planner, the arch-administrator and ruler, and the archcaucus boss.

How is an ordinary citizen or subject of the King to stand up against this formidable machine, which, once it is in power, will prescribe for every one of them where they are to work; what they are to work at; where they may go and what they may say; what views they are to hold and within what limits they may express them; where their wives are to go to queue-up for the State ration; and what education their children are to receive to mould their views of human liberty and conduct in the future?

A Socialist State once thoroughly completed in all its details and its aspects - and that is what I am speaking of - could not afford to suffer opposition. Here in old England, in Great Britain, of which old England forms no inconspicuous part, in this glorious Island, the cradle and citadel of free democracy throughout the world, we do not like to be regimented and ordered about and have every action of our lives prescribed for us. In fact we punish criminals by sending them to Wormwood Scrubs and Dartmoor, where they get full employment, and whatever board and lodging is appointed by the Home Secretary.

Socialism is, in its essence, an attack not only upon British enterprise, but upon the right of the ordinary man or woman to breathe freely without having a harsh, clumsy, tyrannical hand clapped across their mouths and nostrils. A Free Parliament - look at that - a Free Parliament is odious to the Socialist doctrinaire. Have we not heard Mr. Herbert Morrison descant upon his plans to curtail Parliamentary procedure and pass laws simply by resolutions of broad principle in the House of Commons, afterwards to be left by Parliament to the executive and to the bureaucrats to elaborate and enforce by departmental regulations? As for Sir Stafford Cripps on "Parliament in the Socialist State," I have not time to read you what he said, but perhaps it will meet the public eye during the election campaign.

But I will go farther. I declare to you, from the bottom of my heart, that no Socialist system can be established without a political police. Many of those who are advocating Socialism or voting Socialist to-day will be horrified at this idea. That is because they are short-sighted, that is because they do not see where their theories are leading them.

No Socialist Government conducting the entire life and industry of the country could afford to allow free, sharp, or violently-worded expressions of public discontent. They would have to fall back on some form of Gestapo, no doubt very humanely directed in the first instance. And this would nip opinion in the bud; it would stop criticism as it reared its head, and it would gather all the power to the supreme party and the party leaders, rising like stately pinnacles above their vast bureaucracies of Civil servants, no longer servants and no longer civil. And where would the ordinary simple folk - the common people, as they like to call them in America - where would they be, once this mighty organism had got them in its grip?

I stand for the sovereign freedom of the individual within the laws which freely elected Parliaments have freely passed. I stand for the rights of the ordinary man to say what he thinks of the Government of the day, however powerful, and to turn them out, neck and crop, if he thinks he can better his temper or his home thereby, and if he can persuade enough others to vote with him.

But, you will say, look at what has been done in the war. Have not many of those evils which you have depicted been the constant companions of our daily life? It is quite true that the horrors of war do not end with the fighting-line. They spread far away to the base and the homeland, and everywhere people give up their rights and liberties for the common cause. But this is because the life of their country is in mortal peril, or for the sake of the cause of freedom in some other land. They give them freely as a sacrifice. It is quite true that the conditions of Socialism play a great part in war-time. We all submit to being ordered about to save our country. But when the war is over and the imminent danger to our existence is removed, we cast off these shackles and burdens which we imposed upon ourselves in times of dire and mortal peril, and quit the gloomy caverns of war and march out into the breezy fields, where the sun is shining and where all may walk joyfully in its warm and golden rays.
Shamelessly copyed from Blognor Regis.

What was I saying about political policing? Blair (the other one) is Britain's most senior policeman and guess which part of the lefty establishment doesn't want him to resign. Which he clearly should after the de Menezes murder and the implemetation of selective, plainly political policing of recent months. bLair and Sir Blair are two parts of the socialist elite now ruling Britain.

BTW parliament just banned smoking in pulic places.

British Liberty's Slow Death

Last night NuLabour removed another chunk of British Liberty by voting the ID register bill through the Commons for the second time. They rejected even the minimal amendments the Lords had made to the bill. Such as removing the voluntary registering of private biometrics when applying for a passport. Since 80% of British subjects hold a passport the gov has very effectively made the scheme compulsory by the backdoor. It seems to me that there is very little chance of stopping the wretched scheme by any means now. By the time any future parliament comes to vote to make the scheme "properly" compulsory, a large section of the population will already be entered on the citizen/criminal register. This fact will then be used by the gov of the day to show the scheme is a success and compulsion should therefore follow. Even if the Tories win the next election they are not likely to suddenly pull the plug on the register. The scheme would have too much momentum by then. They would be portrayed as weak on crime and immigration. Besides when in power the idealism of opposition soon evaporates as Mr. bLair clearly demonstrates:
"Instead of wasting hundreds of millions of pounds on compulsory ID cards as the Tory Right demand, let that money provide thousands more police officers on the beat in our local communities"

That was Toni to the NuLabour party conference in 1995. The only hope is perhaps a major recession in which the scheme becomes the new poll tax. Gordon do your worst.

The Internet Is For Porn

As a blogger posting 2 month old limks is pretty lame however this is simply brilliant. Turn the volume up.

Straw As Quisling

From the Times:
Jack Straw, the Foreign Secretary, condemned the decision by some media outlets in Europe to republish the cartoons, calling it “insensitive, disrespectful and wrong”.

He said that freedom of speech did not mean an “open season” on religious taboos, and he praised the British media for what he called their “considerable responsibility and sensitivity” for not publishing them.
Discraceful words from a minister of the Crown. At least his French opposite number is showing some backbone, from the Lebanese Daily Star:
French Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy condemned the protests in a television interview.

"I am totally shocked and find it unacceptable that - because there have been caricatures in the West - extremists can burn flags or take fundamentalist or extremist positions which would prove the cartoonists right," he said.
Perhaps Mr Straw should take a look at some truly repulsive cartoons.

Political Policing

Check out these pictures of yesterday's protests in London by raghead extremists. This one from Samizdata is particularly telling. Now think about some of the events which have taken place over the last few days. On Thursday Nick Griffin and one of his cohort's in the BNP were acquitted on 2 and 4 charges respectively for using words likely to incite racial hatred. The case then collapsed as the jury failed to reach a verdict on the remaining charges. I am pretty much an absolutist on freedom of speech so I am glad that the BNP men are as of now free men. However the crown prosecution service has decided to retry the men on the remaining charges. Juries don't seem to believe in thought police however NuLabour most certainly does. We must therefore ask ourselves one simple question will the raghead extremists be prosecuted with the same venom?

This in the Guardian is not very reassuring:
(A)Passersby stopped police officers to ask why the marchers were being allowed to carry banners threatening further suicide attacks in the city. One police officer replied: "Don't worry. We are photographing them."
Taking pics eh? Very reassuring, why those crafty Muslims have wrapped their multi purpose towels over their faces, I hear you cry. Not very sporting of old Johnny foreigner that. Coming from the same NuLabour boys in blue who baton charged countryside protestors outside parliament it's hardly surprising. You see it's all about being a "victim group" and understanding victim group syndrome is key to understanding Britain today. To join the club you need to be either:



Can't make up your mind.


Any colour other than white unless you have any other "afflictions" mentioned on this list.

Any religion other than Christianity or for that mater Judaism.


A Woman

It appears that there is some kind of points system going on here so that a female ethnic Chinese lesbo would be more of a victim than say gay white man. Anyhow back to my original question will these people be prosecuted? As the photo appears to show the extremists being escorted by the police it seems unlikely. For a start the Police seem to have made themselves accessories to a crime under current English law, that is incitement to violence. A point which would surely be raised by a competent defense team. Again I am a free speech asolutist but the point I am making is about equality under the law. No matter how much the BNP tries to make its supporters into a victim group they will fail. Can anyone imagine what would happen if The BNP marched in London with Kill All Muslim placards? Baton Charge, plastic bullets perhaps?

NuLabour and the Met lead by Sir Ian Blair are scared of what might happen if they treated Islamic extremist marchers the way they treated Countryside Alliance marchers or would surely love to do to the BNP. In the mainstream media there is also fear. No British newspaper has dared print any of the offending cartoons. It has only been hinted in the press that there is some discrepancy in the way that the two branches of the far right have been treated by the British establishment.

I hope that the Islamic extremists are prosecuted and are in turn acquitted. The BNP are unlikely to be convicted by a British jury. These two outcomes and the legal precedents set might show the Islamic world that British people take their freedoms more seriously than the NuLabour thought police.

Tell Muslims Were To Get Off Part III

So go get some Danish produce or products today. Quite by accident I had the pleasure of purchasing £2000 pounds of Danish technology today in work.
