The present can be erased

Supporters of Tommy Robinson protest his arrest outside Downing Street Featuring: Atmosphere Where: London, England, United Kingdom When: 26 May 2018

Most of us have read 1984 by George Orwell, and although he was about 30 years out in his timing it seems his prediction of how the world would progress was chillingly accurate. How he could see this future, from the post-war world in 1948, is something I will never understand, but he did. We all read the book at school, expressed horror at the world created in it, and then put the book down and forgot about it.

Well, we shouldn’t have, because Orwell’s world is here.

This from Metro UK Quote:

Far-right protesters climbed the gates of Downing Street today to demonstrate against Tommy Robinson’s arrest outside a grooming trial. End quote.

Let’s just stop it there for a moment. Metro describes Tommy Robinson’s supporters as “far right protesters” linking them with fascists, bovver boys, the National Front and white supremacists.

That’s you and me, guys. Just about everyone who participates in Whaleoil is now cast as a ‘far-right protester’. Quote”

One man made it all the way to the top and was pictured emptying a can of Stella Artois right on to Theresa May’s backyard. Hundreds of the notorious figure’s supporters chanted his name and shouted ‘shame on you’ as police were forced to close Whitehall. The co-founder of EDL was led away by police outside Leeds Crown Court yesterday for allegedly breaching the peace. His fans fear he may be jailed again as he’s already under a suspended sentence over contempt of court at a gang rape trial in Canterbury last year. End quote.

The second notorious thing about this article is that in this incident where Tommy Robinson was accused of ‘breaching the peace’ and the previous one involving ‘contempt of court’ they were both outside courthouses where child rapists were supposedly facing justice.

Let us just think about that for a second.

Don’t we now have the right to feel angry and aggrieved at child abusers? Remember the Rolf Harris trial, where there was a lot of anger and abuse outside the courtroom? No way am I defending Rolf Harris, but isn’t this type of outrage normal? Why could people protest then, but not now? Or is it only Tommy? We know the answer to that. Quote:

Officers stepped in yesterday to stop Robinson livestreaming so-called ‘reports’ outside the ongoing trial. He showed men entering the court on Facebook until officers told him to stop. The incident has spread fury among far-right activists, who turned up in force at Downing Street this afternoon to show Robinson their support. End quote.

Those far-right activists again. Hey. I’m not an activist. Neither are the people in that photo. They just want to see the rule of law followed correctly, and real criminals dealt with as they should be.

Funny. Lizzie Marvelly is known as an ‘activist’ and is praised for it. Obviously, it depends on which side you are on.

The third notorious thing about this whole incident is that there has been a ban on reporting the entire incident. Thanks to the internet, word has got out about it, but there is a ban on reporting about it. This means that no news outlet is allowed to report on what happened. If you look at this article from Metro, it only reports the protests after the event. It carefully deals with Tommy’s arrest and the circumstances surrounding it.

Why is it that the British courts can now decide what is allowed to be published? What happened to freedom of the press? What happened to free speech? These are human rights that the British court system has taken away.

If you think I am exaggerating, take a look at this.

 

This was from Whaleoil’s Facebook posts earlier today (Sunday). Now, which post do you think that was about?

We should all be very concerned about this. Quote:

People or newspapers can be in ‘contempt of court’ when they create a ‘substantial risk’ of prejudicing on ongoing court case. It is a criminal offence that can land people in jail. End quote.

Yes, but Tommy was only arrested on the grounds of ‘possibly’ causing a breach of peace, which means all he had to do was turn up. He was careful to say nothing, he just filmed the proceedings outside the court, but was arrested anyway.

Welcome to 1984. Thirty years late, but who is counting.

1984
