This perfectly sums up today’s Britain. Alex Hickey writes on Facebook:
To be governed is to be watched, inspected, spied upon, directed, law-driven, numbered, regulated, enrolled, indoctrinated, preached at, controlled, checked, estimated, valued, censured, commanded, by creatures who have neither the right nor the wisdom nor the virtue to do so.
To be GOVERNED is to be at every operation, at every transaction noted, registered, counted, taxed, stamped, measured, numbered, assessed, licensed, authorized, admonished, prevented, forbidden, reformed, corrected, punished. It is, under pretext of public utility, and in the name of the general interest, to be place under contribution, drilled, fleeced, exploited, monopolized, extorted from, squeezed, hoaxed, robbed; then, at the slightest resistance, the first word of complaint, to be repressed, fined, vilified, harassed, hunted down, abused, clubbed, disarmed, bound, choked, imprisoned, judged, condemned, shot, deported, sacrificed, sold, betrayed; and to crown all, mocked, ridiculed, derided, outraged, dishonoured. That is government; that is its justice; that is its morality.
Now read or listen to the news. In every report of government, parliament, MPs or MEPs you will see their actions as outlined above.
By their actions shall ye know them.
The BBC have produced a two minute guide to the Magna Carta. (I suspect that this is a BBC propaganda attempt to undermine rather than promote Magna Carta, but it fails miserably no matter how much the Fabians & Eurocrats attempt to rewrite our history and bastardise our once superb educational standards. Ladybird was right.). It summarises the freedoms that we have won over the centuries and concludes that Magna Carta and Habeas Corpus are the cornerstones of our law, that they are still on the statute books today, as is the Bill of Rights. Together they form our Common Law.
What we need now is a judiciary with the balls to enforce it, to put those who conduct treason in Parliament by passing statutes that only apply the European Corpus Juris, a law alien to these shores, and very firmly put our legislators back in their place, to act for the good of the people rather than support the daily repression that comes out of it.
We will see over the coming months as we enter 2011 a more concerted attempt to downplay and eradicate completely Common Law in the UK, to harmonise our legal system with that of the EU. This we must resist at all costs, for our Common Law is the key to all our freedoms, it is what countless soldiers over the centuries have died protecting, the ones we celebrated yesterday, and will do so again on Sunday.
The assault on the very fabric of the UK now enters its final stage. Its time to stand up, or forever be under the rule of others.
