In a true Democracy, we should receive: Government of the people, by the people, for the people. When it stoops looking like that, maybe it is because it is no longer functioning like that.

In recent years we have experienced policy being done to us, rather than for us and that makes me feel very uneasy.

In a democracy, we need to see all of our freedoms that we lost during Covid19 returned to us. If a Government can take our freedom then we are not really free.

We should not accept health passports or be denied access to anything because of our health status.

Your health status in not my concern, my health status shouldn’t be yours.

If your vaccine works then you don’t need me to be vaccinated in order to be protected. If my vaccine doesn’t work then it won’t work for you so it becomes pointless. Some people want to take the vaccine, others don’t want it. The right to choose whether to have a medical treatment is a personal choice.

On health passports; if the vaxxed can still catch and spread Covid then what is the purpose of a passport except to control the population? I am pro freedom, anti Government control.

Across the world Governments seem intent on dividing their populations. By vaccine status, by colour, by gender. We are being segregated, siloed, rather than united. There seems to be an epidemic in pigeon holing people by an ever increasing range of categories.

In my mind, we are all just people. All equal. Yes, some have had more advantages than others and we need to make sure that we create equal opportunities for all. But we are equal.

We will never all be born equal, but we can make sure that everyone has an equal opportunity to succeed, regardless of the circumstances they are born into. No citizen of the UK should be held back or restricted by accident of birth or personal circumstances.

Everyone should be free to live their best life, free from judgement and persecution with the same opportunities. We need to provide opportunities to lift the less fortunate not restrict the advantaged.

We cannot create a 100% equal society. It can’t be done. Some people will naturally be leaders, others will be happier as followers. Leaders tend to receive better remuneration to reflect their responsibilities, risks and innovation. But, this is how the inequality of lifestyle manifests itself.

In these interesting times it’s never been more important to stay connected with each other.

Human Rights

*** Updated October 28th 2023 ***

While we have legally left the EU, we have not yet divorced ourselves from its controlling institutions. If our Home Secretary can’t implement the laws she sees fit ( and that the people voted for ) because she is over ruled by the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) then we are not a truly Sovereign country.

As one of the founder members of the ECHR, we signed up to all of its commitments. Many countries cherry picked only the elements they wanted, giving them more control over their own laws and legislation.

We had the crazy situation on the 14th June 2022 where UK courts declared the Rwanda deportation flight legal, only to be over ruled at the 11th hour by the ECHR meaning that the flight was cancelled. Embarrassing for the UK government to say the least & a good demonstration of the lack of progress made in delivering a form of Brexit that is acceptable to the British people.

As a country, in order to be able to govern ourselves, we need to leave the ECHR and the UN Migration pact. Currently, because of the migration pact anyone from any country can travel across the world and come to live in the UK. What happens when grain shortages hit Africa? What if 100 million people leave Africa and want to settle in the UK? How are we going to stop them with current laws in place and dinghy chasing lefty lawyers signing them up for UK legal aid in Calais?

Due to the ECHR we have reached a point where criminals, offenders and protestors seem to have more rights than the victims of crime, ordinary people and motorists caught up in road closure protests.

We need to redress the balance. As a country we invented human rights, we are not about to become a punitive state if we rewrite the human rights act to protect victims of crime.

I would include a section whereby if you commit a crime you are automatically deemed to have waived some of your human rights and protections. For example, we have had burglars suing the owners of the homes they have burgled for injury after they tripped up on loose carpets. I would say, “So what, if you weren’t illegally in the property, your accident would not have occured.”


We need to protect law abiding people over and above criminals and law breakers. We have a duty of care to do so & protect our democracy.
