Okay. This nonsense has gone far enough and we all need to wake up. The government are not all powerful and they do not have any legal right to tell you what to do or force you to obey their guidelines/rules. They cannot legally close shops/businesses, lock you down, make you social distance, wear masks or restrict your travel without obtaining your consent.
The police too cannot enforce a government 'rule/guideline'. If they tried, they would be breaking the Law. Guidelines/rules come under 'civil law' and crimes come under 'criminal law'. The police can enforce criminal law but are powerless to enforce 'civil law' and so cautioning, arresting or detaining you for breaking a rule/guideline would be illegal since you did not commit a crime.
The government have used double speak to dupe people into believing that their rules/guidelines are laws of the land when they are not. The truth is, if the rules were actual laws, Boris would have the power to address the nation and legally order shops/businesses to close, order the people not to travel, order them to stay in their homes, to wear masks and social distance and the people would have absolutely no choice but to obey the law. But he has never done that, and never will because he knows the rules/guidelines are not laws. They are just unenforceable advisory rules/guidelines.
This is why Johnson and Hancock have to constantly use scaremongering propaganda and fear to control you, why they can only ask, request, advise, cajole, beg, threaten, plead or bribe, (furlough), you to follow their rules, as Hancock did on Sunday. If you choose not to, as is your right, you are not breaking a law and so there is absolutely nothing the government or the police can do about it. You have the right to choose to abide by the rules, or ignore them and go about your normal business.
Remember this. The right of rebellion is the right or duty of the people of a nation to overthrow a government that acts against their common interests and/or threatens the safety of the people without cause. I would say that this government has acted against our common interests and has clearly threatened the safety of the people without just cause, wouldn’t you?
Well said , but to many people are complying. I don’t understand, why you would not open up your shop etc if the only other choice is to go bust .
Then again peopel are muzzling them self in open parks ....
Here here, well said. We need to voice our dissent in one cohesive manner and fight the tyranny
Even if they make it as law, it would be an ilegal law and therefore void. No one can go above human rights.
