A letter to the Labour party regarding civil liberties

By Dark Politricks

A couple of weeks ago I wrote the following letter and sent it to Labour HQ, the Prime Ministers office and the Home Office.

I have yet to have a response back from anyone representing the Labour party.

To whom it may concern

I am a floating voter and someone who voted you into power in 97 after living through the last Tory administration.

I could never bring myself to vote Tory and consider myself a socially conscious voter however I am seriously considering voting Liberal Democrat at the forthcoming election and I will tell you why.

Along with many other people I have talked to about this subject I am seriously concerned with how the current Labour administration has decimated our hard won civil liberties.

History shows that freedom and rights are hard to win and that a government rarely gives more power to the populace without a fight.

This is why it horrifies me and many others how easily our rights and freedoms have been given away under the pretext of fighting terrorism and crime.

The Liberal Democrats have a proposed freedom bill which aims to put these mistakes right and I cannot see any way for our country to regain these hard won rights until your administration has been removed from office.

I never thought I would say this but even the Tories seem more concerned about our civil rights than the current Labour administration.

I remember the 90’s when the previous Conservative administration brought in the Criminal Justice Bill and how outraged I was that a government could prevent us from listening to certain types of music and make it illegal for people to congregate freely without a permit. I remember hearing Labour attack the Tories in the house of commons for this bill and stupidly believed that your party was one in which the individuals right to assemble and protest would be protected from the excesses of government power.

However in the 13 years since you came to power the UK now resembles something not too far off George Orwell’s 1984.

We are monitored by hundreds of CCTV cameras a day, huge databases store all our personal details (which are then often lost), our internet usage is monitored and through the RIPA act you have given numerous authorities the right to spy on us and enter our homes without warrants.

Our right to remain silent has been removed, the right to protest severely limited and you have introduced an unfair and unbalanced extradition treaty with the USA.

However what worries me most and I would dearly like to hear an answer on this question as so far I have not heard any Labour minister manage to make a defence of the abuse of the anti-terrorism laws you have brought in. You claimed that tough anti-terrorism laws were needed to help fight Al-Qaeda but then you misuse these laws to

  • Arrest Walter Wolfgang, an 82 year old who dared heckle anti-war comments at the Labour conference.
  • Freeze Iceland’s bank accounts during the financial crisis.
  • Stop, question and arrest numerous tourists and citizens who dared take photographs of public buildings and police officers.

Is it no wonder that a large percentage of the population is wary of allowing any further powers over our lives to be introduced when we can clearly see how this power is used.

I would dearly love to hear an explanation for this expansion and abuse of state power that fits in with the British culture of freedom and liberty and I would also like to hear what you are planning on doing to rectify the situation. Both the Lib Democrats and the Tories have plans for restoring our civil liberties but

as far as I know Labour has no such plans and only wants to further reduce them by introducing ID cards and more surveillance powers.

As an undecided voter living in a marginal constituency I could be all the difference between a Labour victory or a hung parliament.

If you could answer my questions and concerns about the direction your government has taken the country it would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why/

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent
false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material. Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?

    Excellent letter. I am pleased that more people in this country are beginning to wake up to what is really going on. I doubt you will get a reply that does more than reiterate the usual propaganda of ‘making us safer’. The usual method has been to castigate those not supporting disproportionate or unfair infringements of civil liberties as being ‘soft on crime’. They can also count on a sizeable minority to castigate those not in on the fear based group think as being ‘paranoid’ or my favourite put down of ‘being a conspiracy theorist’. The former gov also tended to ignore reasoned arguments that pointed out that the infringements are unnecessary. Instead they would just exploit the victims of criminal offences by making capital out of their statements to the media (e.g Sally Anne Bowman case being used as a justification for the retention of innocent people’s DNA on the database when it was DNA evidence that was responsible not the database itself. There was also that shameless exploitation of acid burn victim Katie Piper, whom was used in the election campaign to maintain the official dogma that CCTV reduces crime) Do they have a fundamental ideological opposition to individual rights and freedoms? It looks that way to me.
