Stuck-Up Unelected Lords’ Savage ATTACK On Freedom of Press

in Anglophobia / Marxism by

Our Lords and would be Masters, not satisfied with their latest attack on the people’s victory of voting for Brexit, are now circling around for another assault; this time lining up their crosshairs on the freedom of press.

The Leveson Enquiry was a political and establishment attack on one of the pillars of any free democracy; the freedom of the press. They failed to yield their target of achieving censorship in full, so they are having another pop, a second Leverson enquiry and as we all should know by now, they like a repeat if it doesn’t go their way. I feel a sense of Déjà vu.

I say political attack because if we were to pick up the role of investigator or journalist, say an alternative one, we would reveal who is behind and who stands to benefit from this censorship.

Well, it is the same story of people with vested interests backed up by made up pressure groups such as Hacked Off, whose interests include hiding the shenanigans from the public of people who should know better.

The quango that is the Media Commission; funded by public money and individually by the House of Lords, (no conflict of interest there) is filled with people who are friends, friends of friends and associates of the said HoL, sharing vested interests (still no conflict of interest there then).

They would have you believe that Leveson 2.0 is about protecting freedoms. Maybe their freedoms. But do not be fooled, this is not about curbing the mainstream press, they already own it and their narrative. This is a colluded attempt to censor the alternative free press, like this wonderful site MBGA. If they have their way you wouldn’t be able to read this nor me take the pleasure to reveal, write and publish this.

Yesterday’s Men Plot to Thwart Brexit: Reform the Lords

in Brexit by

It is often mooted that the House of Commons should reflect the characteristics of the population. Normally this is thought of in terms of which gender and communities are represented, basically determined by any of the protected characteristics. But should we compare our MPs to how they voted in the most important decision the people have made in recent history, to leave the EU; the Brexiteers are woefully under-represented.

As I look across to the other house, the House of Lords; hoping to see some balance from our allegedly respected Peers, I see the house filled of Yesterday’s Men. Surely this house, our second chamber of legislative power whose purpose is to scrutinise the legislation from the Commons, would show balance. Unfortunately, this is not so. Instead they scrutinise the public’s decision instead by voting 335 to 244 in their latest attempt to derail Brexit.

At face value, it seems both houses hold the public in contempt, save grace for a few delightful people. But who are these Lords who preside over us with such impunity?

We are all too familiar with the benches of the HoL being squatted by rejected MPs with the likes of Kinnock, Mandelson and Clegg; those who in some way can carry favour with their own parties to claim their right to a peerage (such is their state of self-expectancy).

But should we gaze across the red benches in detail, which other former MPs could we find? No other than the disgraced Peer and former MP Douglas Hogg, the former Conservative MP who claimed expenses for having his moat cleared and now is seeking to overturn the will of the people.

Hardly an upstanding member of the community.

So it is clear as a rare summer’s day, what the Lords’ opinion of the public will is. They treat our decision to the leave the EU as an abhorrent mistake by the uneducated (and racist) people who do not know what they voted for.

I believe and know what the public voted for and I believe it is time that the people were given the opportunity to return the gesture of giving our opinion on our Lords.

It is time we had a say on the House of Lords, a referendum so the people can hold court on our opinion on them. I also know that the people will know what they vote for should the opportunity arise; to confine our Lords’ unchecked power to history as Yesterday’s men, as they once were.
