Masks and the Law

Visible to anyone in the world

I'm sharing this link to an article in The Critic, regarding the law and the present 'scam'. I read a post on Twitter this morning from a teacher who was up all night with 'nerves' because they are starting back to work today and have been told to wear a mask;they won't be. 

For the record, there is no law on the statute books of the UK that can force you to wear a mask, the Government might have said it is compulsory but they are chancing their arm because people do not know the difference between ministerial guidance, which is what it is, and law. 

When you are ordered to wear anything, be it a yellow star, a burka or a mask, against your will, then you are living under fascism. The only person who can make you wear a mask in the present situation is you - so you do not have to wear one, if you do not want to wear one. So, the question is, will you be complicit in your own enslavement?

Questions of law

Visible to anyone in the world
This 'bedroom tax' really hits a new low and has to be the worst piece of legislation to pass through a so-called modern democratic parliament. When doing politics, I learned that the UK doesn't have a written constitution but one that is drawn from law and tradition. There is a long standing tradition in England, that an Englishman's home is his/her castle. Surely, a case could be taken against the government on the grounds that this 'bedroom tax' in unconstitutional, and as such could be thrown out by the court?? On the question of law and justice, here's another one. There is a very low percentage of conviction in rape cases, from the already very low number that actually get to court. Often in rape cases, it comes down to one persons word against another. Now, I've thought about this one a lot, there is one simple question that could be asked in court to differentiate between rape and consensual sex, and it's this. How many times did you kiss during the sexual act? It's quite simple really, because rapists don't kiss you while they're raping you? The act of love-making or sex, usually involves a lot of kissing, rape is an act of violence, there isn't much kissing involved.
