I thought it was fake. But there is nothing too absurd in the UK these days.
So a man sees the police are spying on everyone on the street, without any probable cause.
And one man thinks, I’ve done nothing wrong, sod off, as the Brits would say. And the police arrested him for not showing his face.
They admitted he did nothing wrong. But to say — or act — like he did nothing wrong was wrong, and he was fined £90. And they’ll touch you and push you and psychologically assault you. No privacy anymore.
The cherry on top was that cop at the end, saying it's "for your own safety."
Hey, do you think that cop would pull over, let alone touch, let alone fine, and prosecute, a Muslim woman wearing a face-obscuring niqab? Of course not. He’s be drummed out of the police.
Here’s a tweet by a police force in Regents Park. They’re so proud of themselves:
Yesterday we conducted weapons sweeps, dealt with a person injured from a van reversing on them, reported a burglary and collected all these from @scope charity shop who diligently didn’t want them to get into the wrong hands & disposed of correctly & safely
In the picture they posted, there’s a spoon. I could make a stupid pun about going after cereal killers, but I’m not feeling laughy right now.
Then I saw a video by our own Jessica Swietoniowski who was with me covering Tommy’s trial in London, and she has stayed on to report from the election, and cover Tommy’s campaign — because we simply can’t trust the media party to tell us what’s going on.
I gave her standing orders for her reporting: Interview people who like Tommy and interview people who don’t, and show us both.
So she tried to do that. And guess who stopped her? The police.
Because it’s much easier to push around a young woman than to handle a mob of leftists?
Tommy has a little truck with a campaign billboard on the back and a PA system. He parks it in a town centre, hops up on it and give a speech. It’s how all the politicians campaign in the UK, except they often have huge buses.
So Tommy rolls into the same town, Carlisle, with his little truck, much smaller than a bus. He’s a registered, legal candidate. Election is next week.
And the police stop him — 38 of them. There are no counter-protesters around. Tommy was so revved up, he grabbed our microphone and interviewed the cops themselves.
The cop says Tommy didn’t do anything wrong, but something might happen, you see.
That’s the UK, my friends. Visit Buckingham Palace and Westminster while it’s still up. One day we’ll wake up, I fear, and those places will be torched like Notre Dame in Paris was; or destroyed in some way.
British history and culture and law that is already being destroyed. Surely the stones will be the last to go, long after the laws and customs are gone.
