The Hairdresser Who Forced the High Court Case

The Business Woman Who Forced the High Court Case

A couple of days ago I read about an English business woman, who along with a hairdresser and half a dozen cronies, has started a High Court case to make the Brexit vote by all citizens in the U.K. null and void. As I read it I could not believe that such a thing could happen considering it was a nationwide vote. After all, we are supposed to be a democracy!

Here is the basic text of what was written in the papers:

“A lawsuit brought by a hairdresser, an investment firm manager and a handful of other plaintiffs that demands Parliament hold a vote on whether to trigger Article 50 will be heard by the UK Supreme Court, according to Bloomberg.

The case is crucial because it sets out a legal path that could allow the House of Commons to ignore the result of the EU referendum.

The plaintiffs argue that an Article 50 request to leave the EU can only be triggered by a vote in Parliament, not the mere request of the prime minister. If the Supreme Court agrees, then the Article 50 request would be put to the House of Commons. It is not certain that Article 50 would get enough votes.

How The M.P's Would Vote

How The M.P’s Would Vote

As this chart from Morgan Stanley show, a large majority of M.P’s favour Remain. Many of them are likely to vote against Article 50.”

What this is saying in effect is that M.P’s must be able to vote on the motion of Brexit, and it seems that most of them are against it! Why? The people have spoken and they demand that we separate from the ‘United States of Europe’ for our own good.

I find it hard to believe that our M.P’s can overrule a nation wide vote on the future of our country. It’s preposterous!

If we stay in the Union and become part of the ‘United States of Europe’ run solely by Brussels we will have two people, a business woman and a hairdresser, to blame. Surely this goes against every rule of democracy in our country, and surely should not be tolerated. If the Supreme Court rules in her favour then the whole idea of Brexit will be in the hands of those in the Commons. That surely is not right when the people have voted to get out.

Does this mean that democracy is dead in our country, and that the people have no say whatsoever in how the country is run? We can but hope that the Judges in the Supreme Court file against this motion, for if they don’t, all hell will break loose!

Pat Condell has always been known as a straight talker, and his views on Brexit are quite interesting. Watch and Listen:

Do you still want to stay in the European Union?

Total Hypocricy

I was amazed to read today that a guest speaker at the Warwick University has been banned by the Students Union from speaking at a gathering because she may offend Muslims. The person in question is Maryam Namazie, who campaigns against Sharia law, and was invited to make a speech to the Warwick Atheists, Secularists and Humanist Society.

A spokesman for the union said: “The initial decision was made in deference to the right of Muslim students not to feel intimidated or discriminated against on their university campus rather than in the interests of suppressing free speech or freedom of expression.” Notice how they refer to the university as “‘their’ university campus”, as if it belongs to the Muslims! These people should be ashamed to call themselves British!

The lady in question is well known for her work with refugees and as a secular activist and is accused of being highly inflammatory in her speeches. She said, “They are basically labelling me a racist and an extremist for speaking out against Islam and Islamism. If people like me who fled an Islamist regime can’t speak out about my opposition to the far-right Islamic movement, if I can’t criticise Islam, that leaves very few options for me as a dissenter because the only thing I have is my freedom of expression. If anyone is inciting hatred, it’s the Islamists who are threatening people like me just for deciding we want to be atheist, just because we don’t want to toe the line.”

Ms. Namazie fled Iran along with her family in the 1980’s after the cultural revolution and has since been living in England. Personally I find this whole episode extremely distasteful when you consider that our universities regularly invite Muslim preachers to university campuses who preach sedition and hatred.

Many of the suicide bombers and other terrorist attacks in Europe and the USA have been committed by students who have succumbed to the preachings of these radical Muslim preachers in our universities. And yet, someone who is against the Islamic faith is not allowed to utter a word in such seminars for fear of ‘upsetting the Muslims’.

It is time the government stepped in and took control of such events because this appeasement of Muslims is getting ridiculous.

One Law For Them, Another For Us!

One Law For Them, Another For Us!

They are allowed to openly demonstrate on the streets of our cities and towns, and yet anyone of us who demonstrates against them is immediately arrested. They have been allowed to introduce their own barbaric Sharia Law in many of our cities and towns and yet the government does nothing.

It is time for the government to takes steps to outlaw these practices and allow free speech and British Law for everyone in the country and stop this appeasement of the Muslims. All these ‘holier than thou’ do-gooder organizations must be outlawed, and we must get out from under the ridiculous human rights laws from Europe to ensure that these laws are the same for EVERYBODY!

Is Free Speech Dying?

A Direct Attack On Free Speech By Muslims

A Direct Attack On Free Speech By Muslims

The people of Europe have been horrified by the attack on the offices of Charlie Hebdo in Paris which left 12 people dead, but there is far more behind the headlines. The attack itself was terrible enough, but it also shows that the long held principle of free speech is in its death throes.

Free SpeechFor centuries the people of democratic countries have had the right to say what they think without fear of reprisal, but in the last fifteen years this right has slowly been eroded away by various means. In the West the idea that you could hold views or say things that are not ‘in line’ with mainstream thinking without fear of retribution from governments, the law, or other people was sacrosanct. That is now fast disappearing.

Tony Blair

Tony Blair – Silencing Critics With Laws

A fine example is the British Racism Law, introduced by the traitor Tony Blair and his acolytes, that forbids anyone from criticising immigrants or Muslims. When Blair opened the country’s gates to several million Muslims from all parts of the world, he was careful enough to introduce this law to prevent criticism of his plans.

To quote a recent article: “The police trawl social media for ‘offensive’ statements. Laws are brought in to outlaw hatred of religions. Anti-terror strategies are broadened to include ‘extremist’ speech. Newspaper editors pull columns which cause offence. Shops remove T-shirts because of a wave of on-line outrage. Anti-racist exhibits are closed because they feature representations of racism.”

Blair's Idea Of Free Speech!

Tony Blair’s Idea Of Free Speech!

This is not ‘freedom’, this is slow strangulation of the whole idea of free speech and should not be tolerated by anyone. Every person on the planet is an individual and has the right to an opinion. If you do not agree with that opinion you offer a counter-argument, not throw that person in jail.

The worst thing of all in today’s Britain is ‘Islamophobia’, for any Muslim can demonstrate on the streets holding placards that read “Islam Will Rule The World” or “Death To The Infidel” and the police take no action for fear of being labelled racist. On the other side of the coin, if a white person stands on a street corner with one that reads “Muslims Out” or “Stop Immigration” he is immediately arrested by the selfsame police for racism!

Arrested White Demonstrator

If the wrong person hears you criticising the current immigration policy in the U.K. you can be arrested, because the country has so many ‘holier-than-thou’ people who refuse to open their eyes and see what is happening to our country.

Within most of Europe these selfsame problems are occurring, and both the people, and governments, need to open their eyes and see what is happening.

Dresden Demonstration

Dresden Demonstration

In a recent post I highlighted the demonstrations against immigration that have been taking place in Dresden Germany. They started very small but have grown in size tremendously. However, since that time many German people have started staging counter-demonstrations calling these people Islamophobic. The original demonstration has also been heavily criticised by Angela Merkel and the government.

As you read this don’t think for one moment that I am a racist bigot for I am not. My wish is for all people of all colours to live together in harmony and peace, but silencing free speech is not the way to achieve this. Governments have to learn that pampering to the needs and desires of immigrants while silencing anyone who opposes the idea, is not the way to go about things. To give immigrants more rights than you give your own people will only end up stoking the fires of hatred. Eventually there will be a backlash as the citizen’s finally say ‘enough is enough’.

A Muslim Demonstration Even Gets A Police Escort!!!

When any sane person considers the amount of freedom given to immigrants and Muslims today, you must come to the conclusion that they are making huge gains in whatever country they reside, and the European people are slowly losing their identity.

This may come soon or it may not, but of one thing you can be sure, with the wars in the Middle East and the poverty, starvation and disease in Africa, pretty soon Europe will be overwhelmed with immigrants to the extent that eventually they will have the power to take over.

African Poverty

African Poverty

The only way to stop this, and I return to an old theme, is for the United Nations to put an end to the insurgency world-wide so that the Muslims can live safely in their own lands. On top of that, the rich nations of the world must come together to change the face of Africa, and use their knowledge and technology to make it fertile once more. This is possible.

Only by making the home countries of immigrants a peaceful and prosperous place to live can we overcome this problem. If we can achieve that they will have no need to emigrate to richer countries like Europe or America.

Let Our Voices Be Heard

Let Our Voices Be Heard

Whatever happens in the future, the voice of the people must never be silenced by governments, laws, or police in any democratic country, for therein lies the basis of democracy.

The Rich and Powerful Never Go To Jail!

Posted in Europe, Justice, President, Prison with tags , , , , , on 16/12/2011 by floroy1942

Jacques Chirac the former French President has finally been found guilty of corruption, but guess what, he won’t go to jail. Unlike you or I, rich and powerful men invariably do not spend time behind bars for their crimes but get a ‘suspended sentence’. Now aint’ that just dandy!

Guilty!

His supporters will firstly insist that he is innocent, but if they go so far as to accept the court ruling, they will say he cannot go to jail because of his health. Justice used to be blind and totally impartial, but that idea is obviously ‘old hat’.  These days it seems that if you are rich or powerful enough you can get away with murder in the democratic West.

In 2004 Alain Juppe was convicted in the same case and sentenced to a 14 month suspended sentence and banned from holding office for a year. He is now Foreign Minister and may even become Prime Minister if his Party regains power.

Chirac as Mayor of Paris

The whole thing dates back to the early 90’s when Chirac was Mayor of Paris. He is charged with various crimes of corruption. During the trial it came out that he had embezzled €1.4 million from the Paris Council to pay ‘salaries’ to friends who held a fictitious job within the council. He was given leave by the court not to attend during most of the trial for reasons of ill-health, namely dementia and failing memory. It is because of his ‘ill health’ that he will not be appealing the court decision.

During his time as French President (1995-2007) he had immunity from prosecution as head of state, but all that changed when Sarkozy became President. He now has the distinction of being the first French head of state to be tried since 1945 when France put the Nazi collaborator Marshall Petain on trial.

The outcome of this trial is really a farce, for it proves once again that if you are rich enough, or powerful enough, you will never go to jail in a democracy. Pity us poor minnows in the pond, for while the sharks play, the minnows pay!!!
