Steve Shaw BS: Brexit & other UK political topics (2436* d) RE: BS: Brexit & other UK political topics 05 Oct 21

She's great, isn't she.

Here's a bit of a speech from someone who I regard as far from great:

Freedom to protest is a fundamental right our party will forever fight to uphold.

But it must be within the law.

Measures already going through parliament will ensure these criminals can be brought to justice for the disruption they are causing.

But we are going further to close down the legal loopholes exploited by these offenders.

So today I can announce I will also increase the maximum penalties for disrupting a motorway; criminalise interference with key infrastructure such as roads, railways and our free press; and give the police and courts new powers to deal with the small minority of offenders intent on travelling around the country, causing disruption and misery across our communities.

So Priti is calling people "criminals" and "offenders" who haven't been convicted of a crime. She agrees that we all have a right to protest, but is bringing in new laws to make sure that we can't. Isn't she just lovely. Oh, and there's renewed talk of turning small boats back that are halfway across the Channel, just as the stormy season serifs in.
