Munguin’s New Republic wrote an excellent article yesterday about the creeping fascism that is slowly but surely taking over the UK, pretty much the over arching agenda of the Conservative Party and current Westminster (English) Government. Well the weekend is mainly the time when the scum bag Tories put out bad news or something controversial, put it out at the weekend and it gets drowned out by frivolous crap, the English Premier League, or the latest sex scandal. Well the above headline should frighten us all and not just benefit claimants who will suffer even more at the hands of this right wing nightmare that sits in Westminster.
It appears that DWP staff are to have the power of arrest, they have always had the power to investigate but never the power of arrest, now they will be able to arrest those whom they suspect of benefit fraud and to fine them all without the need to go to Court or prove their guilt. As Munguin wrote
“Fascism arrives by stealth not revolution. A little snip here and little cut there until you wake up to find disagreeing with the dictator is illegal and you can’t get rid of them because they control the media”, says David Hodgkin on this threat on Twitter.
Because let’s be clear that is exactly what this is, fascism, it is the state taking even more power to suppress the people, to make the people afraid, to break them. All of you who voted SNP 1 and 2, a strategy that allowed unionists into Holyrood in high numbers and who are now taking control of our councils with other unionists, can you see how trapped we are in this nightmare, one that Sturgeons strategy facilitates every day, what are you thinking every day that more and more of our rights and protections go, more of our laws and right to be found innocent until proven guilty. Do you really believe the answer to these questions are the current SNP strategy for independence, I don’t. The longer the Tories are in power and Scotland is part of the UK makes me afraid for my children’s futures, it should make us all afraid.
