The D squared Dilemma

The future is bright. The furute is orange.

D squared referring to David Davis.He appeared on the BBC’s ‘Question Time’ two days ago.

DD is taking a stand against 42 day detention without charge.

The Dilemma is, if one supports DD in his apparent ‘fight’ against 42 detention without charge or 42 day nullification of habeas corpus, then will that support be (ab)used to consolidate the 28 day detention which Davis openly supports?

Unfortunately I have to say Yes, it probably will, because ppoliticians ALWAYS do this. You vote (or don’t vote) for them and they take that as a licence to do what they like over the lifespan of a Parliament, over which time they push and weave a balance of:

a) Personal prejudices
b) Personal enrichment (in terms of both power and money)
c) Party directives (a significant number from outside economic sources and vested interest ‘think tanks’)
d) Drab constituency issues.

It is incredibly rare for them to take a stand on principle. That’s one reason why DD’s supposed stance was so shocking, it even had some political talking heads flabbergasted.

The rule of thumb is they will exercise their power for their own selfish needs only pursuing ‘caring’ (usually constituency issues) minimilistically to secure re-election. Their green leather polishing arses arrogantly believe the orders of their party whips (free votes are not as common) is more valuable than that of public opinion. They twist and spin out often contradictory catch-lines of what democracy means depending on the situation at hand. Yes, in my eyes, most politicians are little better than bacteria.

BUT if we don’t support Davis, what’s the alternative? Only the Lords will vote it down. It may ping pong back and forth for a bit but the cudgel of the Parliament act will get it through eventually.

I believe we are left with only one option: Support Davis on this issue; do what we can to foster a serious debate about the nourishing of the seeding ground of fascism and reverse this insane process – but include in this what exactly we are granting him support on- Say clearly and loudly that Davis’s stance on 28 days is also wrong, especially when he or anyone (as he or anyone are likely to do) says ’28 days has been given a mandate’ – speak out against such a thing fiercely.

Currently, I cannot see any other option available to us for fighting this spate of grossly uninspired and uninspiring politics cheer-lead by the most talentless morons who are only egging on the likelihood that a more fascistic minded government will allow fully blown state sponsored tyranny to manifest.



“Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” – Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790), psssst, don’t mention the bodies found in his flat!


I want to end this post with another point of concern regarding the latest proposal being flouted likely to be abused for political reasons in the near or far future, and that is of anonymous sources in trials.

Here’s a snipped from the BBC story entitled: Law will change on witness rules  (Saturday, 21 June 2008 13:25)

The government has vowed to change the law to allow anonymous witnesses in some court cases after a key Law Lords ruling effectively halted the practice. 

Justice Secretary Jack Straw said there is a real need for some witnesses to have their identities protected.

Jack Straw you may remember was instrumental in global torture transitis otherwise known as extraordinary rendition and lied about it, once it was exposed – research ex-ambassador Craig Murray’s website for details.

This is yet another leap forward to despotism. There should be NO information at ANY trial which is secret. If a witness offers evidence then like it or lump it the state must take measures to ensure that persons safety. Yes, it is expensive (which is why the patheric numbskull law makers in the commons arn’t pursuing it) but it is the best solution.

Anonymos witnesses will simply allow for the detention, torture and precution of political prisoners to occur more easily – which if that’s your goal is the point I suppose.

Actually this already occurs. There are provisions for secret unscruitinized information to be used for watever malicious purposes, but to examnd upon that is once gain dangerous and WILL be abused.

Freedom, 570 – 2001{?}, RIP.
