John Reid ready to invoke STATE OF EMERGENCY

Home secretary ready to invoke state of emergency, was the headline in the Guardian today.

The home secretary, John Reid, made clear yesterday he is
prepared to declare a “state of emergency” to suspend key parts of
the human rights convention if the law lords do not overturn a series of
judgments that have weakened the anti-terrorist control order regime.

His warning to the courts followed his acute embarrassment yesterday when he
had to confirm to MPs that three terror suspects whom he had placed under
control orders to prevent them travelling to Iraq to kill British and US troops
had all absconded on Monday night.

The courts upheld the Law. They found that the Home Secretary was breaking
the law, not the abscondees, and it is clear that the Home Secretary will now
use this excuse to bring about the Dictatorship that NuLab have been working
towards for the past 10 years.

In April I wrote the following, which warned of such a move
following the local elections.

The Months Ahead – for our Civil Servants

It has taken two
thousand years, since the Romans first landed on our shores, invasions by Vikings,
Saxons and
Gaul’s, Empire and immigration to shape the
people that we are today. The result is that we have grown and developed into a nation
which is proud, based upon the freedom of the individual and a fairness to all
around us.

From the time of
the Magna Carta and the Bill of Rights, our liberties and laws have developed across
the centuries, guaranteeing habeas corpus, a right to trial judged by our
peers, and laws based upon precedent, so that they evolve and keep pace with
the changes in our land and the world around us. 

However, we have
endured 10 years of a government that has set its sights on fundamentally
altering the very make up and fabric of the society that we commonly know as
being British, a government that has set out to alter and destroy much of what
we have always known to be good and right.

It has replaced
our common values with institutional bias, with lies, with corruption and
deceit, which has been foisted upon our people with the power of the media,
which only tells the people what the government wants the people to know. We
have seen many times the way in which government tries to strangle and mute
facts and inept decisions, to hide its excesses and to ignore the wishes of the
people by holding parliament in contempt. 

Already we feel
disenfranchised, knowing that we are spied upon, monitored and overheard, and
soon we will need to carry the electronics of a potential repressive state
about with us.

It has
established laws and bodies of state, removed many of our ancient rights and employed mass technology that could
be used in a manner that we as a people would find instinctively disgusting, a
dictatorship, an authoritarian regime that would harness each and every one of

It is unfortunate
that this government has now reached a point in its development where it sees
little if any difference between government and state, and openly promotes
itself in many respects as being the state which it clearly is not.

A government is
only responsible for steering the ship of state, to guide it, but never to own

The Civil Service
alone must be left to manage the state functions, the delivery of services to
the people, never allowing itself as a body, nor allowing its members to become
politicised, and to live and work by the Civil Service Code.

As we approach
elections in May for the metropolitan bodies, for regions and the national
assemblies in
Wales and Scotland I think it is reasonable to assume from
the published opinion polls that this government is going to be electorally damaged
by punitive voting.

In the weeks and
months following those elections, the government, in its attempts to operate
and force through its unfinished authoritarian agenda without the clear mandate
of the people
, may well be attracted by the option outlined above, to take the
road to dictatorship.

If recent history is anything to go by, the fear of terrorism will be its most likely tool, probably with a staged 'event'.

Our future freedoms,
or the lack of them, may well fall upon those people, those good people who
work within the Civil Service, those departments of state, the agencies and
NGO’s which the government must never own, of the Police and our Armed Services
to become the defenders of the people that they serve.  

It will be to
them that we will look, to question decisions that are clearly political, to
refrain from actions that are purely political and to hope that they remember
their allegiance is to the Crown, not the government.  To protect us the people from politicians
should they ever become corrupted and act against us.

We in turn must trust you to ensure
that our freedoms and democratic way of life are preserved.

It will be for
you all to call upon your inner strengths, to visit your conscience, to do what
you feel is right to ensure that you, your children and everyone else can grow
and live in peace but above all in freedom.


It is unclear at this time who would be the Dictator. It could be Blair or Brown, unless our  (ex) Communist Home Secretary Reid has designs of his own.

The Civil Contingencies Act is the way in which Reid would declare a state of emergency, and I draw an analogy with the German Enabling Act here.

Like Blair, Hitler won the
office of German chancellor in legal fashion,
he was, of
course, determined to rule
Germany without the restraint of a
democratically elected parliament. For this to happen he had to set aside the
guarantees of civil rights and democratic procedures……..

The modus
operandi of any fledgling authoritarian state is;

  • Create a fear, real or contrived.
  • Engineer events to give credence to
    that fear.
  • Find a portion of the population to
    blame for that fear.
  • Enact laws to ‘protect’ the majority.
  • Neuter the press.
  • Further engineered events, keep up
    the scare propaganda.
  • Save the majority by containing, then
    detaining the target group.
  • Introduction of emergency powers and
    the suspension of political and judicial process
  • Look for other groups to blame.
  • Total control 

Is it beginning
to start to ring bells, look familiar.   
Germany, Russia, East Germany…..Britain !!
