MINISTER INTRODUCES MEASURES TO CONTROL THE PRESS – Look carefully at the image to the left as this is the face of oppression, of control and the instigator of suppressing free speech by controlling what the press may print.
Since when did the Nazis win the war and govern the UK? Since when did the likes of Stalin ever get control of the United Kingdom? You may very well think that Britain is an open and democratic society where in fact is it being run by fascist dictators who want to suppress your every word and monitor your every movement.
Why am I so incensed? Let’s look back at the scandal of how some newspapers were involved in phone hacking in order to garner their latest stories, yes that would be News of the World, which is now out of business. Then came the Leveson Inquiry and through this the UK government have used it as a tool in which to suppress freedom of speech and freedom of expression.
The Culture Secretary Maria Miller, has unveiled plans for a Royal Charter which would install another Watchdog, similar to the other public money wasting quangos, such as Ofcom. No doubt this scheme will end up employing more than one or two of her socialist / communist friends that intend to control every aspect of the British Press and if they dare step out of line they will be fined £1m for each breach of the so-called regulations.
The ruse here, by the Culture Secretary, is one of protecting the victims of unethical methods used by the press. The press does have a responsibility but to have this controlled through a Royal Charter is no way forward for a democratic society – if that’s indeed what the UK is supposed to be.
I can tell you this, as Editor and Co-Founder of Meebal.com, we won’t be complying with any fascist dictatorship ideas. It is our right to freedom of expression and freedom of speech. I can assure you that if you take away these rights then the UK will quickly end up like North Korea where all media is state controlled.
Meebal will NOT be dictated to by this fascist or any other communist who wishes to suppress our views and that of our readers. We openly welcome the Culture Secretary to do whatever she wishes and we will in open court tell her exactly what she is and what her plans will do for democracy.
We already have little democracy left in the UK and this move by the government is just another example of forcing its will and control on the people.
If the government really wants another watchdog for wasting public money, what about Govcom, a watchdog that governs the way ministers conduct themselves, their affairs and how they spend public money. That’s right, that would be the Public Audits Office job and we all know how effective that is of stopping ministers stealing from the public purse.
In our view Maria Miller really needs to look at cleaning her own house before she attempts cleaning another. If the press are found in breach of any laws then this can be addressed by simply allowing the public access to adequate Legal Aid, in order to sue the newspapers, but it should not, under any circumstances in a democratic system, have a Royal Charter to suppress it.
God help us as our government moves more and more towards a North Korean style of government.
