Phantom organisers for demos required.

We have ceased to be a parliamentary democracy. There was no military putsch. Nobody passed an Enabling Act allowing rule by decree.

But the House of Lords and the House of Commons are now the Dead Parrot Parliament.

They are dead because they do nothing to hold the Government to account.

The most shocking instance of this so far was the £10,000 fine imposed on the eccentric weather forecaster Piers Corbyn (brother of Jeremy) for his part in organising a protest in London

They are parrots because, when asked, they obediently confirm decrees Downing Street put into effect, sometimes weeks before.

We used to jeer that the so-called parliaments of Communist and Fascist states were mere rubber stamps.

Well, we cannot jeer now.

That protest has, in my view, been wrongly portrayed as a mass of weirdos and conspiracy theorists.

No doubt such people, and worse, were there. But many went to it out of a feeling their liberties are fast disappearing under a strange new regime based on fear and panic.

The keen-eyed lawyer Matthew Scott, an experienced barrister, is among many neutral observers greatly disturbed by what is happening.

You may not like Mr Corbyn, and I have my problems with him, too.  (TAP – what might those be?)

But he is in a fine and ancient tradition of troublemakers who have endured derision for standing up for what they think is right, so helping to keep us all free.

They did not care if they were liked.

But what Mr Scott says is deeply worrying. The regulation used to fine Mr Corbyn – 5b of the Coronavirus Act – ‘was hastily made law the day before the demonstration was held.

It was introduced under an emergency procedure and was neither debated nor given even the most cursory scrutiny by any parliamentary process.

‘It permits the most junior Community Support Officer in the country to issue a Fixed Penalty Notice to the suspected organiser of a political event, demanding £10,000 to avoid prosecution and consequent financial ruin.

‘Given its timing, even if it was not introduced with the purpose of targeting the organisers of a political protest against Government policy, it very much has that appearance.’

So a hugely important law, greatly shrinking the freedom of every Englishman, was made on Friday and used, in my view rather selectively, on Sunday. No Green Paper. No White Paper.

No First and Second Readings. No Committee Stage. No revision by the Upper House. No wait for Royal Assent. Just wham, thump, down goes the rubber stamp, and you must pay up!

Challenge this in the courts and you could end up with an unlimited fine and, ultimately, prison.

    I’m fed up with Piers Corbyn being referred to as ‘eccentric’. He is an astrophysicist and a climate expert. He speaks very coherently and having seen some of the replies he gave to the ridiculous Piers Morgan and his sexy sidekick, I’d say that his intellect is far and away above those who criticise him.

  2. Mr Dude says:

    Well said above. Absolutely.

  3. pete fairhurst says:

    I am sure that you are correct in that Belyi, because Piers is very intelligent and he is a real expert [and dissident] regarding the ongoing global warming/climate change psyop. He knows that their “climate science” is bullshit. And he explains clearly, and lucidly, why and how that it is bullshit. So they relentlessly attack him with ad hominems, the usual resort of the those losing the argument……

    The resulting problem for Piers is that this process of vilification has been quite effective. The msm is a powerful tool that they don’t hesitate to use in such circumstances and the mud sticks. That being so it was and is unwise to put him in a lead role in such circumstances. His presence effectively blackwashes the protest allowing it to be dismissed with a wave of the hand. Ditto David Icke, ditto Sonia Poulton

    Miles Mathis takes the fact that the event led with these 3 as clear evidence of a decision to blackwash the whole event. He called all three agents, I guess because they can hardly be unaware of these facts and are thus most definitely not the best faces to lead with.
    Tap already posted this:

    There is clearly no way of definitively proving what Mathis says, but I certainly don’t rule it out

  4. pete fairhurst says:

    A very good point Tap. This fact supports the Mathis “he’s an agent” theory

    • Tapestry says:

      Indeed Pete. Then you have the fact that Mathis claims The Electric Universe is a fake on http://www.thunderbolts.info. It isn’t. It’s as if each source is permitted to put out truth in a narrow band, and then accuse others of being fake, leaving us nowhere to rest! Jon Rappoport is another source that Mathis slates. He likes to accuse sources of being Jewish meaning they are all in the system of oppression. Rappoport I find to be exactly the opposite, trying to set the mind free, and mostly succeeding. Mathis’ endless pursuit of family connections I find ludicrous – as if that’s the part they use to make him seem unreliable, like shape-shifting for David Icke. Adams the purveyor of health foods and prepping materials writes endlessly about political violence and social mayhem. Only Tap News tries to go for something liveable with!
