“Where do we draw the line? Where does legitimate protest end and intimidation and threat begin?”, probed BBC Newsnight in response to the Anna Soubry affair. We see an MP who’s started wearing a camera just in case there’s any unsavoury incidents to record. We’re told that Speaker of the House John Bercow thinks that the apparent abuse that MPs are subject to is a type of fascism. Kate Hoey admits that while elected officials have to be up for public scrutiny there’s an now an aggression which is unacceptable and that she herself has been subject to abuse on Twitter. Further, she asserts, the protests see individuals being stopped from doing something they are legitimately allowed to do. The Soubry situation, according to presenter Emily Maitlis, is especially worrying as it involves a group of men surrounding a woman. And don’t forget about poor Jo Cox, her murder being an example of what can, presumably will, happen if direct action becomes a thing. Doesn’t the Cox case provide a salutary lesson for us all?
What we have here is the sickening spectacle of the political establishment portraying themselves as victims. That is MPs, themselves as privileged a subset of society as you can get, are being discriminated against, being abused simply by virtue of their being politicians. And by men. Groups of them. And, bearing in mind what happened to Jo Cox, they’re well paranoid. The trouble is that what this discrimination amounts to is, according to the best evidence which could be mounted, chants of “Nazi” and “Fascist”, people getting in Anna Soubry’s way when she’s heading towards the Palace of Westminster and Kate Hoey’s reports of being called names on Twitter. That’s the size of it.
This all, the story goes, exposes something rotten at the fringes of British politics -the influence of extremist rabble rousers utilising the power of social media to spread conspiracy theories about Islam and immigration. The words ‘Sajid’ and ‘Javid’ spring instantly to mind, with his divisive campaign of spouting complete bullshit about those risking their lives to cross the Channel on a glorified dingy, but nothing to see here he’s the Home Secretary. Subsumed under the extremist category are the usual names, Tommy Robinson and James Goddard, alongside, fanfare please, John McDonnell. Which isn’t at all a tasty slice of election influencing by the BBC,completely different of course from the claptrap being put out there by The Sun who have now directly blamed the Shadow Chancellor for Soubry’s inconveniences owing to his call 5 years or so ago for Tory ministers to be accosted in the street. What a scumbag, the hatred and violence inciting leftie, essentially Abu Hamza recast as weilding a copy of Das Kapital on the end of his hook. This lot’ll have us eating soap powder because all the taxpayers’ money will have gone on paying for the flypast from the Red Arrows every time a group of migrants washes up on the south shore.
This of course is not, not at all, definitely not in any way, shape or form a bunch of whining bitches being whining bitches. This is not a load of self-interested, language and thus thought controlling bureaucrats with a superiority complex demanding we bow down and worship their ideas in order to let them get on with their terribly important business. This is just a call for parity - us in Westminster are the same as everyone else. Countryside Alliance Kate either doesn’t get or doesn’t care that it’s double dealing of the highest order to bemoan about MPs being stopped from doing something that they’re allowed to do, while wanting the cops to arrest members of the public for the new criminal offence of walking and talking alongside MPs as they scuttle past Big Ben of a morning. Drawing out further implicature, the ruling class can do what they like without impunity, so long as it’s legal, and they make the laws. The common man may only do that which is legal, what’s legal is determined by the whims of the ruling class and is imposed directly upon everyone else. So now criticism and protest are falling foul of said whims, and must be controlled, criminalised and ridden out of the national consciousness. Fox Hunt Hoey is playing a blinder.
Speaking of double dealing, Soubry thinks it’s fair game to issue thinly veiled Nazi jibes to other people, despite being unable to take it herself. He may be an embarrassment, but didn’t she a few years ago call Nigel Farage a Nazi on Question Time? Knowing how all this goes we know the defence already, but by referencing the 1930s and rabbiting on about xenophobia we all know what she meant and what she’s still up to. The neo-liberal globalist.
