I noticed several faded stickers on Scarborough lamp posts yesterday morning.
The Borough of Scarborough incorporates Whitby, Filey, and several villages. It is widely accepted that whatever wealth finds its way into Council coffers is spent disproportionately on the old Queen of the Yorkshire Coast. There must also be some “wastage”.
Putting the corruption of the present UK government aside, it took no time at all to deliver its First Big Lie yesterday. Many people making their way to the Free Tommy Robinson march heard public announcements on the London Underground that the event had been canceled. I think a tabloid newspaper printed this “fact”.
Major news outlets misrepresented (smeared) the people attending the march, and woefully underestimated the numbers on the streets. If they wanted to alienate at least half of the UK’s population, they had a very successful day.
There were “clashes”, regrettably, but in the live streams I have watched today, I was relieved to see the police curbed their pushing and shoving of women and old men, sending very few crashing to the pavement. I noticed several officers exchanging views with “protestors” in a reasonably civilized manner. This gives me some hope.
The “few hundred” who marched in London yesterday to request Tommy’s release was more like 20,000. Their descriptions of the day will be transmitted to five or ten times that number. However “organized” this march was, the next will be better ordered, perhaps more disciplined, and much more populous. It is a movement now. Wat Tyler’s name has been invoked. The peasants are revolting.
Rather as the deep state/shadow government of the United States created the so-called Islamic State, this Conservative Government has created “Free Tommy Robinson”. It has, thereby, made a big hole for itself. If it had any sense it would stop digging. Free Tommy now. (You know it makes sense.)
Citizens of the United Kingdom who care about their nation should begin preparations to man (and woman) the barricades. If you don’t support the brave and determined folk who turned out for Tommy yesterday – you may eventually get the ruined state you deserve. It’s a choice. The light of truth and justice or the dark of corruption and lies. The world is watching.
