  1. As ever you tie yourself up in knots Rother because you are indeed sometimes ignorant... I am no more 'trotskyist' than you!..Do you actually understand what the word means, other than what you perceive from a wiki entry? FYI I am a anarchist in the truest sense of the word - not what the government/media lead you to believe about an anarchist...! Sadly you and many others have shown a complete inability to understand the difference because of one tiny detail... I believe that everyone should be able to control their own life instead of bending down to 'authority' whatever they may decree - and that is ANY form of FORCED authority whatever name you may wish to give it! I have no problem with criminals being investigated, but the line has to be drawn when innocent people are caught up in the same net - a concept that obviously fails to be grasped by some who already consider others not their equal for one reason or another! What you and others don't understand is that it is not 'some bad apples' as you quaintly term it, it is the system behind that allows (and encourages) the 'bad apples' - a very big difference! I have been involved in some protests that most would agree with and some that most wouldn't...At least I remain true to myself, and bother to get involved! Unlike you, who claimed that you were censored here when you were not, I have been...I'm still awaiting a reply as to why!! But then I'm sure you (and others) will think thats ok, without realising the consequences since you no longer have the right to say what you want! Despite the contrary impression I've received a lot of help here, and hopefully helped a few out... But for some, christmas has come early...! And sometimes the right wing minded idiots win... Hey ho, the last 12 years have been fun... :Thumbs_Up1:
  2. Can't disagree with that... And 'our' religious fanatics are just as bad as 'theirs'!
  3. Ah, so now its the three unwise men....pmsl
  4. Nothing more to add?...again! Unable to 'afford the luxury' of an opinion?
  5. Isn't it funny how the usual suspects spout their nonsense yet again ... Rother and the Fonz... Which one is the puppet, and which one the puppet master?... Nothing is mentioned by either of you about the actual topic I note... So come on then... Do either of you have any constructive comments to add to the issue instead of just spouting b*llshit yet again? Of course you don't - because you don't have a clue as to what is happening around you!
  6. Oh dear... A quick history lesson required methinks! Linky Linky Looks to me like they would have been classed as terrorists nowadays... But if they weren't, then badlad's examples mean diddly squat too! Can't have it both ways! That's OK.. Some of us do it for others as well as ourselves... :Winky:
  7. The issue was about Police actions in this country, but Hey ho... Maybe we should look at these events you list... 1.Streets in Banff evacuated as bomb squad called in http://www.bbc.co.uk...etland-18123082 2. Bomb explosion at school in Brindisi, Italy http://www.bbc.co.uk...europe-18128170 Again, no mention of terrorism... 4. Bogota residents on deadly bomb blast which killed two http://www.bbc.co.uk...merica-18110181 Civil war issue...freedom fighters or guerillas? So there you go... 4 out of 5 not terrorist actions, and the last is just a trial report of an event a couple of years ago... C- for you I'm afraid Badlad.... :Winky:
  8. I would suggest that you can't afford not to protest against things that will affect your life for the worse... Of course some people are happy for others to do it for them, and some are just sheep! And going by the last two posts it seems that the Government has done a pretty good mind job on some of those sheep!! So am I correct in assuming that you two believe the suffragettes were terrorists, and that women should never have got the vote?
  9. Hook , line and sinker!! What has terrorism got to do with taking the mobile phone data off any CRIME suspect? The reason I say that is the example of section 44 stops... A specific terrorism measure, and 'necessary' you may say? No terror arrests in 100,000 police counter-terror searches, figures show And the result of that (and section 60 stops) was one of the contributory causes for the actions of some during the riots because they perceived (quite rightly)they had been picked upon! So did that 'anti terrorism' measure keep people safe? How many died as a result of the riots? You are right that it's innocent people that it affects, but the governments don't actually have to do these things. What they do have to do is change their policies elsewhere! You might not have an answer, but I have a few ideas as to where it's gone wrong ( :Winky: ) and what has led us to this police state we are in...!! You might not think it is that bad, but I'll promise you this... If and when you become a victim of this, or a myriad of other draconian measures, you'll change your tune! Do you ever campaign against anything?...Because that is what this measure is for - to find out about protests and particiants and then prevent them!... And it's no coincidence that this (and a whole raft of other measures) have been introduced in Olympic year! Because people think it's 'necessary' to 'keep us safe', but don't think of the consequences! No one really wants to think they are living in a police state, but unfortunately by the time the majority wake up to the fact it's too late!! ps: Q. how many have died from terrorism in the UK in the last decade?... A. 56 Q. how many have died on uk roads in the last decade A. approx 28,000 If the government really wanted to 'keep people safe' statistically, they'd make the 'unpopular' decision to ban cars!
  10. Unlike my 'sidekick', I believe we ARE living in a police state... But as I have said before it is a 'civilised' one, so that people don't realise until they get caught up with the police - and then it dawns on them far too late! How do you insult someone legally? Personally I would have liked to insult the Queen on the day she is entertaining dictators, but was stopped from doing so... :Vault:
  11. You asked the question... In your case I just pointed out the obvious... :Fun:
  12. What can't you see Rother? Things right in front of your nose apparently! And as ever, you confuse 'Country' with those that 'rule' it! I seem to recall a certain objectionable (but legal) political party's member list being publicised. Was that good? What if a member of an equally objectionable (but legal) organisation was stopped and all their contacts stored forever, and innocent people referred back to at any time in the future just because they were on a phone's database? That smacks of a tactic the Stasi would be proud of to me, but maybe that's ok with you? I could remind you that a certain group of people were rounded up on the say so of an IBM database, but then I'm sure you'll tell me 'it couldn't happen here' wouldn't you! Fed and nurtured?...Exploited as far as possible would be the phrase I'd use! As for 'keeping me safe', how come we are now the target of terrorists who didn't threaten us before our illegal wars? How come we are in danger of sliding into an abyss due to our governing system having failed to protect the interests of the vast majority of it's population? And as for being able to say and do what I like, are you having a laugh? You obviously haven't heard of section 5 of the public order act...! Of course there will always be 'inequities', but do you wish to condone the silencing of those who point them out through ignorance of the actual situation?
  13. Isn't it amazing how some people can't see that we are getting as bad as the places they compare us with... We just do a more 'civilised' police state here in the UK, in the same way as we do more 'civilised' corruption... :Winky:
