Don’t waste this opportunity to rectify the attack on our civil liberties

By Dark Politricks

I am not going to try and predict the outcome of tomorrows general election in the UK as the polls are the closest they have been for years and for the first time as far as I am  aware of it’s actually a three horse race. Recent polls have shown that the three parties are all within the margin of error of 3-5% which means that we literally have no idea of what the outcome will be. Add to this the fact that apparently 40% of the population is still undecided and likely to change their mind there is not a fortune teller around who could accurately forecast the result.

The last few weeks has seen the Liberal Democrats break into the public consciousness and their recent surge in popularity has helped to push Labour down into third place in the majority of polls. This has been encouraging not only from a personal point of view but also from the view of someone generally interested in politics as it’s always healthy for the status quo to be turned on its head from time to time. No section of the political class should ever expect the right to govern or believe it’s their turn to rule.

With the first televised debates in UK history, much of the public has seen the real face of the Lib Dem’s for the first time and many liked what they saw. Whether this will transfer into votes tomorrow or not is another question but even if the Lib Dem’s only achieve their usual 20% they have changed the face of politics forever and helped re-engage a disinterested public who had all but given up on the political process after the recent scandals at Westminster.

Personally I have no real affinity with any political party and I have probably voted for as many different parties as I have had elections in which I’d been able to vote. Along with many others I think the recent expenses scandal and the earlier peerages for sale fiasco has shown our political system for the corrupt club of old school boys it really is.

The bailouts and the banking crisis has shown that when it comes to making a choice between the public and big business, those with money always pull the strings and our first past the post electoral system is likely to be shown up tomorrow as totally unfair and undemocratic especially if Labour come third in the popular vote but manage to hold on to power.

Whatever way you look at it the current Labour administration has had 13 years to make the country better and they have spent billions in doing so. Yes Labour has done some very good things for the country such as bringing in the minimum wage, recourse in the UK courts for the Human Rights Act, helping to get peace in Northern Ireland and the building of many schools and hospitals.

However they have also done many bad things such as the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the hundreds of tax increases, the failure to hold a public inquiry into the 7/7 bombings, driving up a huge national debt and most of all they have destroyed our civil liberties and turned this country into what many people legitimately feel is a high tech surveillance state.

I feel their time has come. The question is who do you trust to reverse these attacks on our civil liberties, the Tories or the Lib Dems?

The Lib Dem’s have a brilliant reform bill called the Freedom Bill which aims to reverse many of the laws brought in by Labour. The Tories talk about a UK Bill of Rights and rolling back some of Labour’s surveillance state apparatus. The question is who do you trust to actually implement anything? If you remember the 90’s like me then the answer won’t be the Tories therefore I hope that whoever wins that the Lib Dem’s get enough seats to be the only logical choice for a coalition partner and that they then wield their influence to pass through their Freedom Bill at the earliest opportunity.

Labour is calling the Lib Dem’s and the Tories soft on crime for their pro-civil liberty perspective. However we must realise that if our society is broken then a bigger stick is never the solution to fix it. You can build as many prisons as the budget allows for and you can put CCTV cameras on every wall and in every shop as well as GPS devices on every citizen but as long as we live in a divided society that rewards corruption and misuse of power there will always be crime.

Civil Liberties are not a far fetched idealistic theory to be discarded whenever the Government wishes but until people realise this and make more of an outcry over those we have lost already it will be too late. There will come a day when even the most ignorant of the “nothing to hide, nothing to fear” brigade has had enough but it will be far too late to do anything about it and the ability to protest will just a far fetched dream of the past.

It’s already hard enough to protest without being labelled a domestic extremist and being logged on the new Police database. Even if you do get your permit woe betide daring to go too near a policemen in case you get slapped, battered and even killed. Try to take a photograph of the police brutality at hand and you are in breach of anti-terrorism laws (or so the police see it) and its only a matter of time until groups of people who complain about concepts such as liberty, freedom and excessive government power are treated like the terrorists the laws were supposedly brought into combat. Don’t believe me? Just look over the pond to the USA and see how Tea Party members, Ron Paul and Bob Barr supporters, ex service men and libertarians are being labelled as just that by the media and the establishment.

So our liberties are not just a theoretical concept that some suggest come way down the list of priorities but instead they are at the core of our national being and what separates us from the terrorists we are supposed to be fighting. The fine line that needs balancing between security and liberty has been pushed way too far in the wrong direction by the current government and tomorrow we actually have a chance to rectify it. Please don’t waste this opportunity.

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 all happening now 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". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

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 I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, 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 tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it 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?
