Obituary: British Freedom 1215-2008

1215AD - 2008AD
"NO Freeman shall be taken or imprisoned, or be disseised of his Freehold, or Liberties, or free Customs, or be outlawed, or exiled, or any other wise destroyed; nor will We not pass upon him, nor condemn him, but by lawful judgment of his Peers, or by the Law of the Land."

It was announced last night that British Freedom had died, aged 797, following an eleven-year battle against cancer.

Despite a valiant struggle, Freedom finally succumbed with the use of counter-terror police to arrest an Opposition Minister for leaking information NOT related to National Security

Born in 1215 with the signing of Magna Carta, British Freedom long stood as a bulwark against totalitarianism in other nations, and was instrumental in the spreading of similar freedoms to other parts of the world.

Since 1997, however, Freedom had become increasingly diseased, with the increasing misuse of power by an authoritarian regime. Symptoms included the encroachment of a Database State, an increase in CCTV monitoring reaching 1 camera per 15 people, the indiscriminate monitoring of communications and a blatant attempt to control the information British Subjects receive.

However, the event that brought about its last breath was the use of our political Police to arrest an Opposition politician, allegedly over the leaking of four pieces of information:

1. Jacqui Smith knew 5,000 illegal workers had been granted licences.
2. An illegal immigrant was employed as a cleaner in the Commons.
3. A list of potential Labour rebels on 42-day detention of terror suspects.
4. A letter from Jacqui Smith to Gordon Brown warning recession could lead to more crime.

This, of course, completely ignores the fact that NOBODY was investigated or arrested for the leaks to Robert Peston which, upon their release, so strongly affected the Stock Market. Or the rampant leaking of the PBR.

The ZanuLabour hand (or, more accurately, the ZanuLabour Stalinist Clunking Fist) is so obviously behind this that their pathetic denials are completely unbelievable. Damian Green is probably the first politically-motivated arrestee outside Wartime in this country since the Civil War.

Freedom has died. Stand by for the imposition of the Civil Contingencies Act and the long reign of President-for-Life Brown.

Serious shit going on.

Very true, Sir.

I've been researching and I seriously can't find a peacetime precedent for something like this.

Have you noticed that Pravda spokesman Nick Robinson is suspiciously quiet? Not even a mention of the whole thing.

Also reckon the denial that everyone but the PM and the Home Office were notified before hand is complete bollox.
It would've been the home office that brought the police into it.

Call me niave but I think the truth will out. The genie can't be put back in the bottle.

It's standard policy to alert the Home Office if an MP is to be arrested. They said so on Radio 4 this morning.

I find it amazing what gets done in the name of terroism these days.

When's the wake ? We should all go, out of the utmost respect that we all feel.

I am truly scared of what might happen next.

What on earth was the Speaker doing giving the anti-terror cops permission to search the offices of a Rt Hon member of Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition? I believe that no police can search the Palace of Westminster without that permission. Was he given advanced warning - or was this the real reason for using the anti-terror police, in that it appears that on the tenuous grounds of "national security", all rights and freedoms take second place to the State?

Like Not a sheep, and old Holborn, I too am seriously concerned that we have already slept-walked into George Orwell's Ministry of Truth (sorry - I meant the Home Office).

Might shed a light on proceedings.

Thanks for the link to Prison Planet. I have downloaded two of Alex Jones's latest films - just haven't had time to watch them yet.

Mysteriously, the infowars link was unusable tonight.

Sorry - you're wrong. British freedom wasn't born in 1215 - English freedom was. And English freedom was extinguished in 1998 with the ascent of the Devolution Bills.

England has been up sh*t creek without a parliament for the last 10 years and 645 'honourable' members have stood by and let it happen. England, a nation of 50 million people, the 6th largest economy in the world is unique in the fact that it has no legislative body. England, home of the world's first evolved democracy. England, originator of the Magna Carta the world's first written document to set out the rights of the indivual - Freedom further reinforced through the introduction of the 17th century Bill of Rights. England - no first minister, no national democracy, no national parliament......

That is the real tragedy. Your democratic freedoms in England have been non-existent for 10 years - with very few people uttering any protests..... It just shows what can be done with an inexhaustible supply of mushroom manure and a coal hole...

"there is a contract and a bargain made between the King and his people, and your oath is taken: and certainly, Sir, the bond is reciprocal; for as you are the liege lord, so they liege subjects ... This we know no, the one tie, the one bond, is the bond of protection that is due from the sovereign; the other is the bond of subjection that is due from the subject. Sir, if this bond be once broken, farewell sovereignty!"
