"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

What Has Europe Done For Us?

Well, the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance has issued this 'Monitoring' Report, for one thing.  Pages 37-38 are particularly interesting as they address the media and political parties.  ECRI reminds the government that they have it within their power to ban  political parties and that the media should adhere to strict guidelines laid down in 2003.   Apparently we're not trying hard enough to accommodate the whole world and his mother although ECRI says they do detect 'encouraging signs'.

They have a finger in every British pie; there are placemen in all the British institutions, put there with the connivance of successive governments and to rid ourselves of them would probably seriously destabilise the country. It's an intricate network of deceit and betrayal.

  1. What gall - to call on the government of the UK to ban a legal political party? With each breach of civil liberties these bastards are emboldened to go further and won't stop until we push back - hard!

  2. Should Labour ban the BNP, it might find its ratings plummeting further. It would be seen either as a blatent attempt at getting rid of the opposition or as pandering to the EU.

    I hope they put their feet right in it. Should they ban the BNP, UKIP's membership should soar - unless they attempt to tar UKIP with the racist brush.

    Nothing would surprise me about this despotic government.

  3. Hi Scunnert, Labour's 'Enabling Act' has provision for banning dissent - whether it's banning political parties or making it a crime to insult 'the' flag. Everything's in place but the man in the street doesn't realise it yet. 'Nothing to hide, nothing to fear' must be the most damaging slogan of modern-time.

    They wouldn't dare ban the BNP overtly Fausty - they'll continue doing what they are and chase them through the courts, hoping to bankrupt them and make them a less viable force. The media have their instructions and will continue to use the word 'odious' as if it's an integral part of their name - it's all sleight of hand and backdoor tactics. As Scunnert says, the provocation will continue - and even if/when the Cons are elected, these people will still have positions of power and influence.
