And Then, Such Speed...

Tricky one this as I really don’t want our front door kicking down in the small hours but I’m amazed to see how lightning-fast justice can be ‘served’ when ‘required’.

Put to one side weather you admire this fellows courage or if you despise him,  weather you agree with wot the guy says or not, just remember those  words - amended somewhat; First they came for TM and I said nothing... Yes, we should all be a tad concerned with the latest news relating to Mr Rommy Tobinson.

It seems that for the heinous crime of live streaming from outside a Leeds courthouse, he was arrested for a breach of the peace, a media blackout imposed, he was then tried, found guilty, had his suspended sentence enacted,  and has been sent to gaol for thirteen months. All done and dusted in under eight hours. Damn!! That’s moving, eh? Compare and contrast with... well, just about any other case you care to think of really.  

Are our masters truly angling for a long hot summer of discontent? I guess all right regular thinking folk will think, yes they are, thus enabling them to bring forward ever more powers to control us. Plus more laws relating to wot we’re allowed to think. Pardon? Allowed to say and type? Are you nuts? Keep it zipped and your hands in your pockets.

By-the-by, an awful lot of the comments around the Web-a-Net must be making somewhat uncomfortable reading for those ‘up there’. Very early doors the arrest was reported by the Independent and the comments were pretty cool. The piece is still there but, spookily, the comments seem to have been ‘lost’.  Down and down we spiral...

This may interest some of you.

Anyhoo, here’s a toon for Rommy pulled out of left field. Watch your back boy!

There was an interesting piece in the Independent a couple of days ago by Robert Fisk about how genocide can't happen without the tacit and even active participation of the general populace. The reason I mention this is because I have long suspected that a sizeable proportion of our lovely population would be more than willing to fulfil the more ignoble offices of an uncaring, cynical and fascist state (such as wot we are turning into); how else does TV Licensing recruit people?. I even read somewhere lately that some Channel Islanders were enthusiastically assisting the Chermans to rid the islands of any Red Sea pedestrians during the WWII occupation. It would have been the same in Leeds, Torquay or Bury St. Edmunds. I estimate that fewer than one in ten of us would have the necessary to stand up and tell officialdom to foxtrot oscar as the need arose. Sad days.
