The Rise of Police Power

Its already been widely reported about Colin Port being judge and jury and initially refusing (but eventually complying) with orders from court.

Now another Policeman, Assistant Chief Constable Bill Holland, has taken it upon himself to be judge and jury and is trying to get the biker festival called the Bulldog Bash Cancelled. He wants it cancelled, despite there being no trouble at the festival itself (only outside the event), despite the local villagers welcoming the event and the money it brings into the local community, despite the local villagers saying that last year's Police operation was disruptive, over the top and generally unwelcome. So, despite the festival organisers, visitors, local council, local villagers and tradespeople all wanting the Bulldog Bash to go ahead, Bill Holland takes it upon himself to do everything in his power to quash it.

Excuse me, but I thought the Police were servants of the people. If the local community is ok with it and actively promotes it, then the Police should respect those wishes.

Bill Holland says that the Hells Angels (who help organise the event) are a criminal gang and use the proceeds to fund drugs smuggling. The organisers have proved to the local council that the funds are re-invested and are not used for any other purposes than the festival itself, thereby earning a new 10-year licence for the event.

I say to Bill Holland, if you can prove the Hells Angels are a criminal gang, then proscribe them, if you have proof of drug smuggling, then go and arrest the smugglers. If you have proof that proceeds from the Bulldog Bash are being used to fund it, then do something about it.

But right now, all I can hear from Mr Holland is whinging and hearsay, without hard evidence. Hardly a basis for clamping down on a festival that thousands enjoy and welcome.

Mr Holland, the people have told you to leave them alone, now as their servant, you should do just that.

This is just another reason (among many) why I'm coming around to the idea that senior Police Officers should face election and instant dismissal by their local community, not selected by some commitee of jobs-for-the-boys promoters.

Far too many of the Police think themselves a cut above the rest of us and think they should act as social engineers. Thats not their job. Their job is to keep the peace and uphold the law. They should stay away from social engineering and politics.

Its a worrying trend how the Police, Politics and the Political elite seem to be melding into one. We've seen the lawmakers themselves thinking they are above the law and partial to a bit of fraud. We've seen certain elements of the Police think so too. It has to stop.

Mark my words, the public at large are railing against this. Not just the underclass, by now the middle classes are seeing things happening in politics and in public services they don't like. The staus quo has gone on too long and public services no longer see themselves as servants of the people. Instead they want to control us, surveill us, engineer us, make us their puppets. If we step out of line, the consequences far outweigh our missdeeds, in order to make examples of us. The underclass have known this for a decade or more. The middle classes are now coming into contact with the 3000-plus new laws enacted by the Labour government and the power-crazed people in charge of public services.

The public at large are awakening, they will have their say and make their mark very soon.

The Rise of People Power

"If the people that run the country don't abide by the law, they why should we?" Is a meme I'm hearing more and more.

People are now actively questioning authority where before they would have stood by. Here is a good example of people power at work.

Mark my words, next year will be the crescendo.

Parliamentary Paralysis: Conspiracy Theory.

Usually with conspiracies (especially UK ones), there are two trains of thought: (a) its a conspiracy, or (b) a monumental fuck-up, born out of incompetance.

The current paralysis in Parliament could be down to a monumental cluster-fuck, but the more I see, the more I hear, the more I form the opinion that there is scarily something more to it.

Just who has a vested interest in ruining our democracy and paralysing the people in control of power in this country?

Why is government contining with policies that promote the rise of the BNP and to what ends?

Why does the government continue with policies that are destroying society?

Why. when it's obvious that government is following a disastrous policy, do the other parties then try to outdo each other to push those same policies?

Those at work are yet to show their hand, but when they do, the people of this country had better be prepared.

Totally Bloody Pointless: The Anti-Stab Knife.

Someone has spent far too much time locked in a dark room and has designed the anti-stab knife. It is supposed to reduce the amount of knife crime.

To me its totally bloody pointless. A knife is a knife is a knife. Any sharp implement can inflict fatal wounds, whether its an anti-stab (but not anti-throat-slashing) knife, a broken bottle, a tin can, or (going way back in history) a piece of sharp flint.

Even a few hours rubbing the anti-stab knife against a stone will make it into a full-on stabable knife. So what really, is the point of it?

Far better to educate the people that want to use knives to harm people. Those that chose to use a knife to harm a person need to be put in jail and that jail should be so much worse that their current living conditions.

The problem is, jail tends to be a better, or not much worse option. It is no deterrent.

However much the politicians rant on about knife crime, they completely miss the point: The system and the culture we have at the moment has created a huge underclass of young adults, who see life as cheap, where their life and by extension the lives of others have no worth.
Successive governments have failed to tackle the problem, because knife crime is a symptom, not the disease.

Until Government grasps that concept and deals with it, things like the anti-stab knife and laws prohibiting the carrying of knives will continue to fail to solve the problem.

Parliamentary Paralysis: Time to Save the Nation.

Well, it's come to pass: Mandleson is deputy Prime Minister in all but title and we all know he effectively controls the government now. A coup in other words.

I did say when he came back into the cabinet that there would be blood spilt and several hidden agendas will be exercised.

His complete anihillation of Brown's credibility was one. I wasn't sure of the means, but the effect would be the same: to completely undermine Brown and install if not himself, then a trusted deputy of his, so that the Blairite hegemony could continue through the heirs of those that started the plan.

His second big agenda I thought would be the selling-out of Britain to Europe, by strengthening of the Euro state and membership of the Euro. With one goal: to make us totally at the mercy of Russia.
Call me mad if you like, but the European Government currently couldn't organise a piss-up on a brewery, never mind fend of an agressive neighbour intent on making us dependent on its energy and mineral resources, before using them to make us cow-tow to their every whim.

The policy we are headed on is very dangerous indeed. Russia is already bankrolling us by buying our guilts, we already buy a large amount of their natural gas. Those that push the global agenda say this is a good thing: more interdependance will make us partners, rather than enemies. But hang on a minute, the dependance is all one-sided: there is no "inter"dependance. Its much like the relationship of a drug dealer and their junkie client. The dealer can eventually make the junkie do anything, in order to continue the supply of their drug. The same may happen with Russia and Europe.

A wise brain will see this dependance as a strateigic threat (much like Churchill saw the Nazi militarisation as a threat) to this country and do something about it. But our hands seem to be continually tied behind our backs. If we plan for new conventional or nuclear power installations, the plans are opposed by socialist environmentalists. If we plan to use alternative energy like wind farms, the plans are contested by socialist environmentalists. If we plan to develop weapons to defend ourselves with, they are opposed by socialist pacifists.

Socialists want to control us, so we have new laws where we can't fart without there being some fine for it. Socialists infiltrate our schools and indoctrinate our children with political correct nonsense. Socialists say we have to be multicultural and so we spend vast sums of money pandering to cultural minorities, far exceeding their fair share of the taxpayer pot of money. Socialists say that people should be paid for sitting on their arses and its their right, without a shred of guilt. Socialism destroys our sense of culture, saying we should be part of a European Superstate, our indentity, our history, our currency should be swept aside. So it goes on: "socialism" is now decreeing what we can think and say and do in our own homes. IT HAS TO STOP.

I'm not against Socialism per-se, that is socialism with a small s: standing up for the working man against exploitation. But rampant socialism, such as I've seen rise over the past decade really is a threat to our country. Mandleson is the arch-architect of this grand plan in Britain. If the spineless bastards in government won't stop him, its time us, the people of Great Britain started to take note and say: enough is enough, this is too far. We will go no further.

If that means direct action, then so be it. Battle should be joined and we should regain our country by force if necessary.
