With the Break-up
of the Home Office, dividing duties between a newly named Ministry of Justice
and for all intents and purposes a Ministry of the Interior the UK Cabinet now
mimics exactly the key Cabinet posts as Hitler had his at the time he took
control of Germany.
It also fits in
very comfortably with the Common European model as outlined by the European
Commission, and the confusion caused during this ‘reorganisation’ presents an
opportunity for a budding Dictator.
Means Used by the
Nazi Conspirators in Gaining Control of the German State
(1) On 30 January 1933, Hitler became Chancellor of the German Republic. After the Reichstag fire of 28
clauses of the Weimar Constitution guaranteeing personal liberty an freedom of
speech, of the press, of association and assembly, were suspended. The Weimar
Constitution contained certain guarantees as to personal freedom (Article 114),
as to inviolability of the home (Article 115), and as to the secrecy of letters
and other communications (Article 117). It also had provisions safeguarding
freedom of speech and of the press (Article 118), and of assembly (Article
123), and of association (Article 124). The Reich President was authorized,
“if public safety and order in the German Reich are considerably disturbed
or endangered,” to take steps to suspend “the Fundamental
Rights” established in Articles 114, 115, 117, 118, 123, 124, and 153.
the UK had all of those rights, but each one of
them has already been subjugated by the anti-terrorist laws introduced by this
(2) On 28 February 1933, the Nazi conspirators, taking as their
excuse a fire which had just destroyed the Reichstag building, caused to be
promulgated a Decree of the Reich President suspending the constitutional
guarantee of freedom. This decree, which purported to be an exercise of the
powers of the Reich President under Article 48 (2) of the Constitution, and
which was signed by the Reich President, Hindenburg, the Reich Chancellor,
Hitler, the Reich Minister of the Interior, Frick, and the Reich- Minister of
Justice, Guertner, provided in part: “Sections 114, 115, 117, 118, 123,
124, and 153 of the Constitution of the German Reich are suspended until
further notice. Thus, restrictions on personal liberty, on the right of free
expression of opinion, including freedom of the press, on the right of assembly
and the right of association, and violations of the privacy of postal, telegraphic,
and telephonic communications, and warrants for house-searchers, orders for
confiscations as well as restrictions on property, are also permissible beyond
the legal limits otherwise prescribed.”
Following almost any 'event', the
government can activate at almost any time the Civil Contingencies Act 2004
(3) The Nazi conspirators secured the passage
by the Reichstag of a “Law for the Protection of the People and the
Reich”, [Page 209] giving Hitler and the members of his then Cabinet
plenary powers of legislation. At the first meeting of Hitler's Cabinet on 30
passage of an Enabling Law (Ermaechtigungsgesetz) was discussed, and
suppression of the Communist Party was considered as a means for securing the
majority requisite for this and other purposes. (351-PS) Since such a law
involved a change in the Constitution it was governed by Article 76 of the
Weimar Constitution which provided: “The Constitution may be amended by
law. The acts of the Reichstag amending the Constitution can only take effect
if two-thirds of the regular number of members are present and at least
two-thirds of those present consent.”

be re-educated for productive work. We will know how to render harmless
permanently sub-humans who do not want to be re-educated.” In fact, most
were arrested inside the Reichstag, the remainder outside upon their arrival
for the vote.

force, anyone can be arrested, on the whim of a Police officer or the instruction
of a Minister of State, inside Parliament both under Section 128 and Section
132 of the Act. (note: SOCPA does NOT exclude MP’s from its powers).
On 23 March,
Hitler spoke in favour of an Enabling Law proposed by the Nazi conspirators and
in the course of the debate said:
Government insists on the passage of this law. It expects a clear decision in
any case. It offers to all the Parties in the Reichstag the possibility of a
peaceful development and a possible conciliation in the future. But it is also
determined to consider a disapproval of this law as a declaration of
resistance. It is up to you, gentlemen, to make the decision now. It will be
either peace or war.”
visions of Gordon Brown doing just that.
Thus subject to
the,full weight of Nazi pressure and terror, the Reichstag passed the proposed
law, 441 deputies voting in its favor, and 94 Social Democrats being opposed
(2579-PS). The following day, the law was promulgated. It provided: “The
Reichstag has resolved the following law, which is, with the approval of the
Reichsrat, herewith promulgated, after it has been established that the
requirements have been satisfied for legislation altering the Constitution.
Reich laws can be enacted by the Reich Cabinet as well as in accordance with
the Procedure established in the Constitution. This applies also to the laws
referred to in article 85, paragraph 2, and in article 87 of the Constitution.
The national laws enacted by the Reich Cabinet may deviate from the
Constitution so far as they do not affect the position of the Reichstag and the
Reichsrat. The powers of the President remain undisturbed.
The national laws enacted by the Reich Cabinet are prepared by the Chancellor
and published in the Reichsgesetzblatt. They come into effect, unless otherwise
specified, upon the day following their publication. Articles 68 to 77 of the Constitution
do not apply to the laws enacted by the Reich Cabinet.
Treaties of the Reich with foreign states which concern matters of national
legislation do not require the consent of the bodies participating in
legislation. The Reich Cabinet is empowered to issue the necessary provisions
for the execution of these treaties.

This law becomes effective on the day of its publication. It becomes invalid on
April 1, 1937; it further [Page 211] becomes invalid when the
present Reich Cabinet is replaced by another.” (2001-PS) The time limit
stated in the law was twice extended by action of the Reichstag and once by
decree of Hitler.

SOCA. We do not
know who SOCA will now report to. Will it remain with the Home Office, will it
move to the Treasury (the majority of its personnel have been drafted in from
HMRC, and most of its work is for economic crimes), or will it report to the
Prime Minister through the new Ministerial Committee on Security and Terrorism,
which takes in the Domestic Affairs Committee’s work.
