Tommy Robinson Imprisonment

For Tommy Robinson – The Man Who Shall Not Be Named – in the UK.

To those who say that the powers that be will just sit this crisis out and wait for people to get fed up with marching and peacefully demonstrating about the imprisonment of Tommy Robinson, I think you have something there. They may well want the anger to spill over into violent protests and may even provoke it but while that may be enticing for some, there are many more people who would never contemplate such escalation and the authorities will count upon that general feeling of decency in the law abiding to stop the growing numbers supporting Tommy Robinson in their tracks.

The Labour Party’s entryist activists in ‘Momentum’ chose an effective name that reflects the continuing nature of the harassment that must be carried out if any meaningful change is to be achieved. Momentum implies a growing movement, one which gathers pace and is unrelenting in its focus. Keeping up momentum is the key to maximise the effect on Government and it is one which lobbyists and public relations gurus know all too well. It is how a tiny insignificant number of people can punch well above their weight in the public opinion stakes.

What Happened to Tommy Robinson’s Freedom of Speech?

In my view we need to be clever about how this growing anger is channelled to avoid it being dissipated. We have achieved international publicity over TR’s incarceration and it is something which needs to be built on. There must be a campaign on many fronts and the pressure must be kept up for Ministers to start to quake. Their advisers will be telling them to follow a strategy of taking out the high profile leaders and subjecting enough of the vocal minions to visits and warnings from plod to frighten upstanding, hard working people with much to lose. That and a publicity blackout will lead people to lose heart and think themselves defeated. It is a simple strategy but effective or why else would they keep doing it?

So I have been pondering on how to keep the momentum of anger and protest going and how to engage those who would willingly take part in a low level of protest that did not risk their livelihood or safety. In the Poll Tax protests some people chose to pay their bills in low denomination coinage. It wasn’t illegal: they were fulfilling their obligations, but it had maximum buggeration factor and made ordinary law-abiding people feel as if they were making a protest and doing their bit. We can always withdraw our custom from shops whose advertising policy offends us, for instance. The power of money is, well, powerful.

Society only works when we all do our bit to keep the wheels running smoothly. Perhaps paying bills in cash will bugger up the plans for increasing electronic payments. Perhaps the amount of cash in circulation will have to be revised. Perhaps putting pressure on the financial sector will lead them to lean on the Government. I don’t know what would be best but I know that it must be something that is not illegal and that many more people can take part in to feel as if they are doing their bit. Perhaps there is something else more effective. I am open to suggestions. It is only a part of the ongoing protests, supplemented on many other fronts to engage those who would prefer us to go away and work and pay our taxes and watch TV like good little sheep.

Theresa May A Liar?

UK may not leave EU for another 65 years, mocks Brussels official.

If Theresa May tells people that we will be leaving the Customs Union but we never actually leave, is Theresa May a liar?  If Theresa May tells people that we will be able to strike trade deals with whomever we like worldwide after Brexit but she doesn’t tell them that is contingent upon us actually leaving the EU, is Theresa May a liar?  If Theresa May insists that we will be taking back control but a foreign country, Ireland, is actually dictating the terms of our ability to do that, is Theresa May a liar?  If Theresa May says that we will be able to determine who comes into our country but doesn’t say that the same people who can come here now will still be able to, is Theresa May a liar?  If Theresa May says that we will be able to make our own laws but doesn’t say that will never happen unless we actually leave the EU, is Theresa May a liar?

Theresa May vows Britain will have its own independent trade policy after 2020 and denies Britain will stay in stifling customs union, but is she a liar?

GOING IT ALONE Theresa May vows Britain WILL have its own independent trade policy after 2020 and denies Britain will stay in stifling customs union

The concept of lying is clear to some but not to others, it seems.  If I set out to deliberately mislead not by what I say but by what I leave unsaid, have I technically ‘not lied’?  Can I hold my head up and stand tall and steadfast as an honourable person?  Will such a one go down in history as a great negotiator, as the person who gave us Brexit but who agreed to tie our hands and our future capabilities to such an extent that we were doomed to become an also ran, a poor, weak shadow of former power and glory?  A vassal state?

And might it be said by global historians that this was our just and inevitable fate and that what was promised had been successfully delivered in buckets?

Glory hallelujah for the great deceiver has triumphed once more.

Theresa May’s BREXIT Climbdown

Theresa May’s Never Ending BREXIT

Let me get this straight. According to Theresa May BREXIT means that we are leaving the single market and the customs union – but we are not going to set a date for it.  It may go on for some time until something comes along to change things, such as a foreign country (Ireland) and the EU never agreeing any solution to the border question.  That will settle it once and for all: we will have to stay in the customs union and that means we have to stay in the single market and have free movement and the ECJ.  Because, as has been pointed out to us time and time again by the Commission, these pillars of the EU are indivisible.  Accept one, you accept all.  There are no opt outs.
