I hope you will use this forum to share your own stories and what KBF means to you. I feel that as I am asking others to 'unmask' themselves in this way, it is only fair I throw my hat in. As you probably already know, my name is Simon and back in June this year, together with a few other like-minded souls, we launched a legal challenge against the UK Government Lockdown.
We believed, and still believe that the Government acted illegally and disproportionately over the COVID 19 lockdown and decided to take action.
I saw thousands of people losing their jobs and our children denied their education. I saw daily the people dying, not from Covid but from the way the government destroyed the NHS, demolished businesses and robbed people of their livelihoods and life.
What started as a personal mission soon grew. Through my judicial review proceedings, it became clear to me that I am in no way alone in my concern. I wanted to create a place where the community that started to come together could grow, explore ideas and be free to think and speak.
Keep Britain Free was born, and our movement now thousands strong, represents the millions of people who believe in personal freedom. Thinking for ourselves and taking back the responsibility for our own lives.
Our blog outlines a huge amount of the journey we have been through this far; including the decision by the judge to throw out our request for a judicial review, and the fact we are currently appealing this.
Whatever the outcome inside the courtroom, what we have started with Keep Britain Free has taken on a life of its own and brought together a community like no other.
Please use it to share your stories, grow connections and feel welcome wherever you are from and whoever you are. Unmasked and unmuzzled.
