Under Labour, the priorities of the judiciary have become almost entirely subverted. Murderers and rapists, paedophiles and terrorists can expect to have a sympathetic hearing, if they are ever caught and brought to court. But should you overfill your rubbish bin…well..prepare for the worst…

"With his rubbish collected only once a fortnight, Gareth Corkhill’s wheelie bin was so full the lid wouldn’t shut. And for that, the father of four finds himself with a criminal record. Magistrates convicted the 26-year-old bus driver after hearing evidence that the lid was four inches ajar, which is against rules to stop bins overflowing.

 

He was ordered to pay £210 – a week’s wages – after he declined to pay an on-the-spot fine imposed by the local council’s bin police, who visited him wearing stab-proof vests and carrying photographic evidence of his crime. To add insult to injury he was told to pay a £15 victim surcharge to help victims of violence – despite there being no victim – and threatened with prison if he failed to pay. Rapists, murderers and other violent criminals who have earned a jail sentence rather than a fine are immune from the penalty. Yesterday the council, Copeland in Cumbria, said that Mr Corkhill’s family had caused problems for "the battle to reduce waste".

 

If ever this country needed a grass roots revolution to throw off the yolk of the oppression of the common man, it is now. Our freedoms are being mercilessly removed and the law itself is now seen to be unfair, unbalanced and unreal.

  1. We need V for Vendetta.

    Good evening, London. Allow me first to apologize for this interruption. I do, like many of you, appreciate the comforts of every day routine- the security of the familiar, the tranquillity of repetition. I enjoy them as much as any bloke.

    But in the spirit of commemoration, thereby those important events of the past usually associated with someone’s death or the end of some awful bloody struggle, a celebration of a nice holiday, I thought we could mark this November the 5th, a day that is sadly no longer remembered, by taking some time out of our daily lives to sit down and have a little chat.

    There are of course those who do not want us to speak. I suspect even now, orders are being shouted into telephones, and men with guns will soon be on their way. Why? Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power.

    Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn’t there? Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission.

    How did this happen? Who’s to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you’re looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror. I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn’t be? War, terror, disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear got the best of you, and in your panic you turned to the now high chancellor, Gordon Brown.

    He promised you order, he promised you peace, and all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent. Last night I sought to end that silence. Last night I destroyed the Old Bailey, to remind this country of what it has forgotten. More than four hundred years ago a great citizen wished to embed the fifth of November forever in our memory.

    His hope was to remind the world that fairness, justice, and freedom are more than words, they are perspectives. So if you’ve seen nothing, if the crimes of this government remain unknown to you then I would suggest you allow the fifth of November to pass unmarked.

    But if you see what I see, if you feel as I feel, and if you would seek as I seek, then I ask you to stand beside me one year from tonight, outside the gates of Parliament, and together we shall give them a fifth of November that shall never, ever be forgot.

  2. Whilst I detest the attitude of the Local Council, I would point out to the good people of Copeland that they have the vote. Consequently it is up to them to make the Members of the Council realise that it is the Council that is subordinate to the voters.

  4. Peter T –

    Whilst the voters ought to remind the Council that it is a mere temporary assembly, subordinate to the poeple, a good enough arrangement already exists.

    Gorvernment is limited by constitutional constraint in the United Kingdom and it is absolutely not the business of the state to snoop on a freeborn Englishman, investigate him, charge, summon and try him for ‘leaving a bin ajar'(?!!!) declare him guilty of leaving the bin ajar and fine him.

    Well done you brainless idiots who ever voted even once for Blair’s faction. You really do deserve the worst.

    Gareth Corkhill doesn’t do himself any favours, however. He ought to have stood in the dock and told the Magistrate where to go. He should have taken it all the way, up the the Lords and even the Governor of the Nation herself, she who swore to ‘govern the British People in accordance with their laws and traditions’. Yes, Her Majesty the Queen, Elizabeth Saxe-Coburg-Gotha Rubberstamp.

    She is still sworn by oath and Law to intervene and defend her Subjects when oppressed by her government. She knows this because she was tutored for years in Constitutional Law. Not that you’d know it, useless as she is.

  5. nice to see everyone has their priorities set. Afterall pathetic council nonsense is of much more importance than say anti-terror laws and their deployment against the domestic population.

    thats not to say that this case is insignificant. far from it. there all represent the thin end of the same wedge, which is a dissent into authoritarianism. and we are much less prepared to defend against it than the likes of the US which has a constitution and a bill of rights. all we have is the mercy of a system that subordinates everyone to the whims of ‘the city’.

  6. I note that Mr Corkhill is also quoted as saying "It’s only an £80 fine for flytipping. I would have been better off doing that."

    Very sound advice, especially for anyone earning under £18K from this month on, and who therefore needs to know such good (err) "tips" for "tightening the belt".

    Failing that, I’ll sell him my recycling wheelie bin for just a fiver. It’s fully guaranteed: The lid on it has never, ever been in the "open" position, not even for a second!
