As one of Vlad’s best tipsters in the UK points out, there was a massive massive police presence and no shortage of selective enforcement of the law, and even, from what I have been hearing, new laws being invented just to selectively enforce against the EDL, there seems to be a hell of a lot of cops for an event that is not on SKY news or the BBC today.
Interesting. Clearly the British government is using totalitarian measures (where totalitarianism means controlling the press, controlling what ideas are acceptable and which not and taking over aspects of life best not under the control of Government in a free society) and expanding those measures as well as increasing the frequency of their use.
Interesting how quickly a government which is a the mother of all parliaments can get comfortable with the very measures they fought against during the cold war for decades. The price of freedom truly is eternal vigilance and, I’m sorry to say, that the tree of liberty must be watered with the blood of patriots from time to time. How do I know this? Because I am willing to bet those last two statements are probably illegal or at least will have me put on a list for republishing here.
