Cry Freedom in an Autumn of Discontent !

28-09-2011 12:55

With the exception of the incarcerated, the August Riots are possibly fading in to memory, however the far reaching implications of those momentous days, will regrettably continue to reverberate in the months to come, as the full brunt and lunacy of Tory Cuts comes into force.

At the time of the convictions, Mein Fuhrer: David Cameron backed the sentences, saying: "They decided in that court to send a tough sentence, send a tough message and I think it's good that courts are able to do that."

However, anyone who came to the conclusion that the courts operated independently, without the "overlord hand" of the Tory leadership, is sadly mistaken. In the same way that courts were ordered to operate "around the clock" so too was the message from on high: "Crack down hard ! for what transpires here today, is not only meant for the riotous few, but will send a clear warning to others who dare to take to the streets to fight our cuts"

What happened in the days and weeks following the riots, was not, as everyone believed, a simple matter of locking up the (possibly) guilty few.

Instead, it was a heaven sent opportunity for the Tory Party and coalition government, to take a Double Edged Hatchet to the body of the British public.

Firstly: A half-arsed, panic induced attempt by Cameron and his cronies, to repair some of the damaging Tory popularity polls, and to do the one thing every political party should do: "Listen to the people"

It didn't matter to the Tories, that "the people" were mainly Daily Mail readers

(the middle class, blue-rinsed, sycophantic, loyal voters to the ruling elite)

Phase One: " Lets pretend to listen to what they want and act accordingly"

Tory policy-makers, (so far up Camerons' arse they never needed a sun-tan) practically creamed their pants at the chance to repair the Tory Junta's broken image.

But more sinister is the other side of the True Blue Hatchets swing .......

Phase Two: An insidious and veiled warning/threat against future protests.

It reads like this:

"To the great unwashed and minions of the island of Great Britain, behold the dictorial and capitalist warning we now serve upon you "....

"The cuts are coming, and we are not for turning, we will not waver from the suicidal and drastic course that we have chosen, you will all, in turn, pay for the mistakes of the financial few, and the sentences of the August rioters are the warnings you must heed:

1. You will lie down and take the economic kicking we will give you.

2. You will not protest.

3. You will not take to the streets with banners of disapproval.

4. You will not dare to even "voice" your dissent on social networking sites, for us, your privacy is a joke and we will hack them and hack emails too.

5. You will have your homes raided in the grey light of an early dawn by our

private army (the police) and the seemingly guilty dragged from their beds.

6. You will be tried and sentenced unjustly, by ageing Tory judges, sitting in

darkened, kangaroo-courts at midnight, who, appalled by your protester

status, will hand down farcical and draconian, judicial punishments.

7. In summary, like the peasants you are, and, like peasants we think of you,

you must rid your simple minds of the fact that Britain is supposed to be a

democracy, and we a democratically elected government, pity the peasants

who thought that Thatcherism and a police state was dead.

You have unwittingly unleashed a great evil, and like the mad axe-men we

always were, we will run amok throughout this bankrupt isle."

And finally another statement of fact: Three Court of Appeal Judges, led by the Lord Chief Justice, were told ‘disproportionate weight' was placed on giving tough sentences to deter others committing offences in the future.

The Tories cum Carpet-Baggers are here. The Cuts are upon us.

And, lulled by a warm September sun, we sleepwalking into a Police-State.

And I am ringing Alarm Bells !
