Theresa May Surrenders To Terrorism.

with 2 comments

Mrs May’s authoritarian, repressive, anti-human rights response to the recent attacks is the action of a coward. She is rewarding terrorism with exactly what it seeks. She is caving in to the most extreme form of blackmail.

If we surrender our liberty then we have nothing.  But Mrs May doesn’t believe in liberty so it is no loss to her.  This is the excuse she has been wanting since she first took over the Home Office in 2010.  If we allow her, she will turn Britain into a police state. Mrs May is the would-be promoter of thought crime, intensive snooping, censorship, rigid and inflexible laws, suppression of dissent, severe punishments and, as she has already demonstrated with asylum seekers, locking people up without trial.

Believe me, she is Britain’s worst nightmare.

Mrs May dishonours those who precede her.  Would Margaret Thatcher have surrendered the very principles that Winston Churchill devised?

She alone bears responsibility for the underfunding and inadequacy of our anti-terrorism strategy so now she thinks she can crack down harder to deal with the consequences of her own mistakes.  Note this is exactly Mrs May’s approach to drugs policy and it has failed time and time again.  In fact it just makes the problem worse.

If Mrs May remains prime minister at the end of this week, I fear for the future of our nation.
