Heroes of Freedom and Democracy

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Miles Cooper and the Buddhist Monks of Burma. Both fighting for freedom and democracy, and both suffering from the actions of repressive regimes.

Now I am sure that a small number of the brain-washed or the brain-dead will quibble at my linking of these two struggles. But long before 9/11 the western “democracies” have been inventing many varied and subtle means of repression, not least of which has been the surveillance society of CCTV cameras, joined-up-databases, ID cards and DNA profiling. It is the duty of every free-born Englishman to resist by all available means the imposition of this electronic fascism. Gordon Brown is Stalin to Blairs’ Hitler. One is gone (or behind the scenes, pulling strings) but the threat remains as acute as ever before.

The nation that claims to cherish freedom based on the Magna Carta, must not sit idly by, we must rise up in revolt and slay our oppressors. As Benjamin Franklin said in 1759, “They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Or as they put it in New Hampshire, “Live Free or Die”
