The wretched Home Secretary, Theresa May, has conspired with the Metropolitan Police to ban a planned English Defence League march through Tower Hamlets in London. And the doesn’t stop there:
The home secretary has agreed to a police request to ban the far-right English Defence League from staging a march through one of the UK’s biggest Muslim communities in east London.
Theresa May said she would outlaw any marches in Tower Hamlets and four neighbouring boroughs – whether by the EDL or any other groups – for the next 30 days, having “balanced rights to protest against the need to ensure local communities and property are protected”.
So that’s all marches, protests and demonstrations banned for a month in a great chunk of London by executive fiat. Here’s some advice to the EDL and all who are barred from being heard: do it, make your voices heard. There are 63 million of us, just a few of them.
The streets belong to we, the people. They do not belong to the useless and clearly frightened police, they do not belong to any interior minister, to the government or any state agent. If a free-born Englishman wants to demonstrate on his streets he is free to do so at any time.
Compliance with a state directive is only obligatory as long as you believe it to be obligatory. The order to stay away is unBritish and illegitimate. Ignore it, put your walking boots on and reclaim your streets from these authoritarian parasites.
