Official Secrets Act: Boris Johnson ‘Doesn’t Want’ Journos Prosecuted for ‘Doing Their Public Duty’

Last week, veteran BBC foreign correspondent John Simpson warned that possible changes pertaining to the Official Secrets Act would put British reporters in the same category as foreign spies. UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has insisted that a review into the Official Secrets Act will not damage journalists’ interests, pledging that a Home Office consultation on the matter would not be scrapped.

Of all the previous British Prime Ministers, who’d have thought that this current, garrulous, bumbling, wild-haired clown would be the one to lead the charge into authoritarianism? It’s like an episode of the Simpsons, with Krusty the Clown.

I get the impression that Boris’s brains currently reside somewhat south of his skull, around the area of his underpants. He’s a middle aged man who has fallen in lurve, and is doing everything at the behest of his squeeze, without thinking of how he is perceived by the populace. He doesn’t seem to care one bit about the country or the people who put him where he is.

Wikipedia: “Mafia State”

“In politics, a mafia state is a state system where the government is tied with organized crime to the degree when government officials, the police, and/or military became a part of the criminal enterprise. According to US diplomats, the phrase ‘mafia state’ was coined by Alexander Litvinenko.”

All hail Our Supreme Leader Kim Jong-Boris!

Former Ambassador and Assange supporter Craig Murray is currently serving an 8 month prison sentence after a dodgy trial for blogging about the Alex Salmond case. Scotland’s second most senior judge, Lady Dorrian specifically stated that bloggers and mainstream media should be treated differently, as mainstream media are “self-regulated”, implying that bloggers and public commentators like Murray ought to be punished more severely than mainstream journalists for the same offense.

I suspect this is more to do with trying to weather the coming storm about the state of the economy, the actual safety and efficacy of the vaccines, the fact that the lockdowns have been a complete fail and the mounting evidence about who has been profiting from this all. It won’t work though, this government knows many lawsuits are coming their way and are trying hard to control the narrative as a form of damage control. It is more like trying to close the gate once the horse has bolted. They see what is happening in France and they… Read more »
