Covid-19: Tyranny – Shouldn’t We ALL Shout At Politicians? Hmmm… YES! 

Comment: 

Well done, Julia, for telling Bob Stewart MP  that you have every right to shout at him, given that he is planning to vote for continuing/worsening restrictions in the name of Covid, without a shred of evidence for the need to do so.  He comes across as a weakling, keen to keep on the right side of his equally weak boss.  Well done!  Your show, and others at talkRadio, is about the only pushback to this shocking removal of our freedom. In saner times, we could have looked to our priests and bishops to fight, on the grounds that our liberty comes from God, and cannot be taken away by any Government.  But, to match the weak MP on your show today and the weak Prime Minister, we also have a bunch of weak priests matching their weak “bosses”;  there hasn’t been a right-thinking Bishop in possession of a backbone seen anywhere in Scotland since the outset of this “crisis”. They accepted then that God is a non-essential “item” and it’s been all downhill ever since. 

However, ever keen to be fair to them 😀 and in case I’d missed an announcement from the Scottish Bishops’ Conference opposing the continuing restrictions on our personal and religious freedoms, I paid a visit just now to their website.  No sign of any opposition there; far from it – there is a notice offering priests in Scotland an opportunity to participate in an online Advent afternoon of recollection which will take place via Zoom on Thursday 10th December 2020,  from 2pm – 4pm.   Unbelievable.  Source

Here’s a wee meditation suggestion for the clergy – would only take about 10 minutes of the two hours allocated for their “Advent afternoon of recollection” – why not start acting like real priests, ignore the Government restrictions, announce that if anyone wishes to report you to the police, to at least have the courage to give advance notice, including name and address, with a short signed note waiving their claim  to the Last Sacraments, including Confession, should they become seriously ill at any time during this contrived crisis.   You can see why they won’t ordain women, can’t you, ‘cos’ that’s exactly  what I’d do, I kid you not. 

Anyway, back to Julia’s response to that hapless Member of Parliament – was she right to shout at him?  Would you shout at your MP, given half a chance?  I’ve already had to switch off the capital letters when I email mine, because he might not reply if I “shout” over the internet 😀     Is “shouting” – for which read, more accurately, plain-speaking, vigorous discussion –  likely to get the message across that you want him or her fighting to restore our liberty?  Well, frankly, being nice and soft-spoken doesn’t seem to be making any difference, so, worth a try…  if only via the internet? 

What’s  that?  Does this question – “would/should we shout” (at them) –   also apply to Bishops? Well, now… what do you think?  

Lord Sumption: Only Permanent Lockdown Will Work (That’s The Plan)…

Former Supreme Court judge Lord Jonathan Sumption has criticised the government’s approach to the coronavirus pandemic, saying it has employed fear as a means to justify its actions. Speaking with talkRADIO’s Julia Hartley-Brewer, he warned that Downing Street could hold on to its emergency powers after there is no need for them: “The problem is that fear is the main pillar of every authoritarian government. Fear has been skilfully and I fear deliberately employed throughout this crisis.” (From the Introduction to the above video on talkRadio’s YouTube Platform).

I really can’t improve on some of the comments posted over at YouTube, underneath the above video… Which of the following points do you find most compelling? 

Banned from, going out, protesting, freedom of speech, seeing family, living our lives…. This is Tyranny…

The cases are fake and so are the polls. Absolutely treasonous government. Covid 1984. Dystopian future becoming a dystopian present

The soldiers of the past must be spinning in their graves at how easily the British public have rolled over and surrendered their hard-fought freedom, we’re a disgrace to these brave men and women.

Lockdown Boris and co in prison. No to forced tests and vaccines.

When you takeaway people’s jobs and you leave them with no money to pay their bills and feed their children and then they lose their homes trust me COVID-19 will be the least of your worries. 

“Tyranny” strikes me as being a compelling  summary of what is going on, but then so does “Dystopia” – what we are experiencing is the very opposite of “Utopia”, that’s for sure;  the commentator who makes the point about the British solders also resonates – I’ve even seen Government ministers having the sheer nerve to wear a poppy this month despite betraying everything that it is meant to represent. 

Share your own thoughts about the interview. Especially say (1) whether or not you agree with Lord Sumption’s answer to that key question: will we ever get our freedoms back?  And (2) answer this question: where is the religious equivalent of Lord Sumption? Obviously, and scandalously, Pope Francis is never going to fight for our personal and religious freedoms but is there no bishop anywhere in the UK who shares Lord Sumption’s concerns? If not, we need to explore why not… again!   

Police State UK: Nurse Arrested For Rescue of Mother From Care Home… 

Comment: 

A woman has been arrested after taking her mother from a care home before England entered a second lockdown. Ylenia Ashton was filmed by her daughter Leandra after she had been handcuffed and placed in a police car following the incident. Speaking to Julia Hartley-Brewer, Leandra Ashton told talkRADIO they made the decision ahead of the new lockdown because they had been unable to see her grandmother for nine months: “The fact there are rules in place that are separating families… I find disgusting.”  [Taken from TalkRadio YouTube platform.]   

Leandra had explored all the proper channels to have her grandmother restored to the care of her family, but did not succeed.  If, as we keep being told, the NHS and care workers are overwhelmed, wouldn’t you imagine that they would be delighted to find a loving family willing to take one of their patients home?  Is this yet another example of the Covid Fascism which we see everywhere, with self-appointed police people bullying the rest of us.  Except, this time the real police are the ones doing the bullying.  But did they do this on a whim?  Or are they told to crack down and use heavy-handed tactics on anyone – anyone, no matter age or state of health (ironically) – in order to further the Covid/Lockdown agenda?   Has Leandra touched on something very sinister when she identifies  that there are “rules in place for separating families”?  

Climate Cult & Conforming Kids…

In the above short discussion, the speakers acknowledge that the Climate Change movement is, in fact, “religion replacement”.

Julia Hartley-Brewer tries to pin down one of the leaders of the Green Party to “facts not fearmongering” – doesn’t work! 

Comment: 

What is MOST shocking about the entire climate change baloney is that Pope Francis has given the movement his full backing. Earlier this week, one of our Irish readers sent me  a leaflet circulating in the Diocese of Kerry (and no doubt the rest of Ireland) which opens with an unequivocal  statement that we have only “11 years to save Our Common Home” and then the following quote from this worst-ever pontiff: 

“Time is runnning out!  Deliberations must go beyond mere exploration of what can be done, and concentrate on what needs to be done.   The climate crisis requires our decisive action, here and now and the Church is fully committed to playing her part.”  [Pope Francis].

If he were to exhort young people to work hard to build virtuous lives and so avoid the truly terrifying prospect of eternity in Hell, Pope Francis would, of course, lose his star appeal and the airwaves would be full of shocked “liberals” demanding that children be allowed to enjoy their lives without being filled with fear about Hell.  Fear about the end of the world in a mere 11 years, however, that’s fine.  No problem.  Anyway, it’s a moot point.  Papa Francis is never going to terrify youngsters with talk of Hell … Why? 

Answer:  because somewhere along the line, he has lost his Faith. Agreed?
