Thoughts on a protest

As I watch the protests in London and across the country, I am shocked – though I probably should not be – at how they are ignored by the main media broadcasters. The BBC has reported ‘hundreds’. Hundreds! It’s thousands, even tens of thousands from every picture and video stream that I can see.

But, isn’t just typical of our biased metropolitan media?

They hated us on Brexit, and spent most of the 4 years after the vote trying to overturn it.

They grovel to the cultural marxism of Black Lives Matter and Extinction Rebellion, but sneer when ordinary people take to the streets or a cabinet minister has the national flag in his office.

They ignore for years the industrial-scale gang rape of our kids, but get exercised about the ‘rights’ of a woman who spat on our country to take up with genocidal enslaving fanatics.

We are daily held hostage by people who despise us. Lied to by a media drawn almost exclusively from a narrow elite who, as Orwell so famously put it, “would feel more ashamed of standing to attention during God Save the King than of stealing from a poor box”.

The gentle patriotism of our people, the standards of honour and decency in politics, the very belief in freedom itself are considered passé by those who govern us.

In England Boris Johnson has given immense power to the unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats of SAGE, and the crushing of dissent is enforced by jobsworth police officers and civil servants who know neither civility nor service.

In Wales a lunatic vegan cyclist puts his country under effective house arrest regardless of the devastation on their lives and businesses.

In Scotland the SNP demonstrate without even meaning to that they are corrupt, disdainful of the people, and utterly unconcerned with our economic welfare and our health.

And they claim they do it for our own good.

They lie.

Let us be clear. They lie.

The lockdown is not for our good, but for theirs. They were wrong to lock down, but cannot admit it, so they invent more and more variants in an attempt to justify further repression. With terrible warnings to scare us into compliance.

But the demos will not be silenced. Democracy does not surrender, and the people have had enough.

It’s time to change. It’s time for an end to lockdown. It’s time for Reform UK.
