Liberty, Freedom, Futility

Occupying force

Last week a cavalcade of police motorcycles steamed down the A23 into Brighton no doubt escorting senior Labour government personnel in their armoured limousines.

On Saturday the town was awash with police cars and foot patrols. As I walked beside the narrow North Laines a small convoy of what looked like heavy military vehicles painted in police colours edged its way through town. The occupants were dressed in black outfits and one square jawed policeman looked out with what I can only describe as a look of disdain at us minions forced to move out of the way. It felt like occupation and I wanted to shout, “who do you think you are here to serve?” Clearly its not us. If not that coppers’ own ego it is certainly to ensure that his masters are safe, at any cost.

There is a threat. Government decisions over Iraq and its foreign policies make them and us a target. Personally I feel less safe because the Labour party decides to have it’s conference here. It could easily be argued that it would be better if they conducted the whole thing on-line, it would be cheaper, safer and with no loss of liberty. It can’t surely be about open debate as the old boy who was foolhardy enough to shout “Rubbish” will testify. No its just circus and resistance is futile, as the comic books used to say.

While this government gobbles up our rights to peaceful protest and seeks to tag us with technology it hangs onto its god given right to meet where it likes to parade its distorted version of democracy and free speech for the media.

Evidence of Illusion

Lockerbie Crash

The Red Pill or the Blue Pill?

The line from the film The Matrix seems apt when it comes what we choose to believe. What’s yours, truth or illusion?

It must have been a convenient moment. The Brits had just beaten the Ausies at a game of cricket and it was a time of good cheer. So on the Sunday 28th August at 7:00 pm 2005 the BBC news run a report that stated that the CIA had planted incriminating evidence at the scene of the 1988 Lockerbie Pan Am crash site. It was said to be a piece of printed circuit board, later identified as a detonator and part of the bomb alleged to have blown flight 103 out of the sky over Scotland. In court a forensic scientist an expert in electronics identified the circuit board as manufactured by an East German company who made timers and who supplied the Libyan secret service. It was the fingerprint that apparently linked Libya to the bombing and convinved the court of the guilt of Libyan Abdel Basset al-Megrahi. He is currently serving a life sentence in Holland.

Who really planted the bomb?
Interested in this admission that the American secret service had planted phoney evidence that was to be the basis of the general belief that the Libya was responsible for the atrocity and which was the evidence to convict one of it’s nationals I went to the BBC website to read more. There was nothing about the news item on the site. I searched and searched but just found old stories. Was the BBC gagged? (more…)
