UK politics review – the lurch towards Fascism

Spread the love

UK political events combine into a lurch towards Fascism.

The gagging law is passed. Called the Transparency of Lobbying Bill, Non-party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Act it has nothing to do with transparency of lobbying and everything to do with silencing the government’s critics and opponents. It’s a huge blow against trade unions and other campaigning groups like 38degrees and charities. The Conservative-pretendLiberal coalition have attacked democracy by passing this law.

Fascism is described by it’s creator Benito Mussolini as corporatism – the unification of corporations and government. This is entirely the action that the gagging law continues to excuse. Fascism is right-wing authoritarianism typified by attacks on trade unions and political opponents.

Home secretary Theresa May wants to strip suspected terrorists of their nationality and leave them stateless. This is to be done through the use of secret courts. Theresa May has previously stripped dual-nationals of UK nationality so that they could then be renditioned, etc.

This is intended to be done to suspected terrorists. If there was any evidence against them they would be terrorists. Political activists and dissidents are suspected terrorists. Terrorism as defined in UK law is not necessarily anything to do with explosives or arms or similar threats. Once again the government is seen to be silencing it’s critics and opponents.

Madman and London Mayor Boris Johnson wants police to use water cannon and “get medieval” on protesters. The riots of 2011 were sparked by the police murder of Mark Duggan.

later edit: Home Secretary Theresa May’s intention is to deprive ‘naturalised’ subjects i.e. from abroad and granted UK status, of UK nationality. It’s still disproportionate since it only needs suspicion rather than any evidence and the powers are bound to be extended later. Politicians love terrorism because it gives them cover for Fascist laws.

Although reported almost universally as suspected terrorists it is actually “… the Secretary of State is satisfied that the deprivation is conducive to the public good because the person, while having that citizenship status, has conducted him or herself in a manner which is seriously prejudicial to the vital interests of the United Kingdom, any of the Islands, or any British overseas territory.” [source] That seems far wider than suspected terrorists.

later edit: It relates to the nature-nurture debate. Perhaps in this case it relates to the nature – non-nurture debate. Being feral?

Image of Daily Mail frontpageI appeared at Magistrates court today and had a farcical rather than the fair hearing that I have a right to (in theory). I was there for doing 35mph in a 30mph limit having been caught by a LTI 20-20 1000 laser camera.

The most unfair aspect was that the video disclosed to me (late) was different to the video used at court. My version pauses and then repeats 4 seconds. It doesn’t repeat in this version says the Magistrate. I’ve prepared my defence on the basis of the evidence disclosed to me I said. The equipment is not working properly I said. Yes it is she says. Then I raised the principle that the evidence should be preserved so what I got was the same. That went straight over.

The copper was allowed to evade questions and mislead on the slip effect. You couldn’t read the registration plate because the camera is shaking so much. It’s if you pan the camera across a stationary object you get slip effect not from a shaky camera the copper says. I suppose he’s got to believe that because otherwise he’s nailing innocent motorists which he is.

The CPS prosecutor’s question were very poor and she’s been trained apparently.

I didn’t say this in court of course. I know that I wasn’t speeding when clocked because I was accelerating and only doing 35mph 50 metres later when I saw the van.

Road Traffic Act 1991 s23(8) dismissed by the Magistrate. She offers me an adjournment – that’s how prejudged it was. She didn’t even refer it to the clerk.

There wasn’t even a pretence at a fair trial. £205 quid lighter.

28/01/14 Well I can obviously afford 205 squid if anyone wants to go for it. I was thinking that I should just bow out because your justice is obviously for those who can afford it. I’m not asking for pb but expenses – no, real expenses and quite a few drinks – paid for.


ACPO Code of Practice for Operational use 
of Enforcement Equipment


… It is imperative that the procedures set out in this Manual are applied scrupulously – each link in the evidential chain is of importance, and upon its careful application lays the integrity of the Police Service.

Code of practice for operational use of enforcement equipment
14. Laser/Optical Speedmeters

14.2 Hand-held

The hand-held device functions by emitting pulses of infrared laser beams, which are targeted at the vehicle whose speed is being measured. Measurement of speed is performed by aiming the device at the target vehicle in the area around the registration plate and where necessary pressing the trigger or button.  It is important that the beam is held steady on the target area to avoid any ‘slip factor’. …

As I said, it’s not possible to read my number plate because the camera was shaking so much …

2/11/14 This was totally ridiculous. If I had a fair trial there would have been no way that I was guilty.

I didn’t have a fair trial because I wasn’t able or willing to pay £450 for someone to represent me. That’s how it works. That’s how UK justice works. This is just a small inconsequential example. I was innocent but if you have vast amounts of money then you’re innocent by default.

[I’ve looked at the video film. It’s very clear that I should not have been found guilty on the basis that the prosecution must prove that I was guilty. The evidence does not support that. My case is not important to the rest of the argument.]

In UK you have voluntary magistrates and magistrates that take a salary. Who are these voluntary magistrates going to be other than comfortably rich people who don’t need to earn a living?

And isn’t that a bit skewed? That these people who don’t have to earn a living – because they are comfortably having money without earning it – are judging their monetary-challenged inferiors without ever having the experience of being skint or worrying about having shelter from the elements?

That’s not right and needs to be changed. I want more.

But also: Who are these paid for magistrates cos they seem to be total stihs too.
