US-born Johnson and his Regime’s callous and cavalier treatment of human rights

Reported around the world the UK’s callous and cavalier treatment of “aliens” is in full focus with the case of Anna Amato who has lived 53 and a half years after arriving with her Italian parents as an 18 month old child in the UK, but denied British citizenship by a callous and racially cavalier Brexiteer Government.

And PM Johnson was born in the USA. He only gave up his US citizenship when the IRS chased him for tax. Britain, get your act together – this is nothing but unworthy bureaucratic oppression:

  • Human rights matter.
  • Civil liberties matter.
  • Justice matters.
  • Fairness matters.
  • Common sense matters.
  • Democracy matters.
  • The welfare of all the people matters.
  • Equity matters.
  • Equality before the law matters.
  • The equality of races matters.
  • Workers’ rights matter.
  • Family financial stability matters.
  • Government services matter.
  • Forcing corporations to play their part matters.
  • Keeping the nation united matters.
  • Our politicians’ honour and honesty matter.
  • The economic and strategic security of the nation matter.

But none of these matter to the authoritarian Tory Brexiteer extremists led by the Cummings-Johnson duopoly and their Brexiteer Cabinet. And Anna Amato’s case bears out the callousness of Britain’s Tory Brexiteer Regime.

They have divided the nation, put Britain in peril with their COVID-19 failures, just as they have put Britain in economic and social peril with their subversive Brexit. They have demeaned the nation with racist policies like the “hostile environment” and with their loathsome, xenophobic campaign joined with Nigel Farage [enough said] for breaking its links to the European Union. They have proven time and again that they don’t care about the welfare of the people with their decade of austerity.
And they don’t give a toss about democracy, for every one of their transgressions that are aligned with neofascism is a rejection of democratic principles rather than the lofty ideals of British democracy.

The truth of Brexit is that it was never the decision of the British people. A referendum – which can be a democratic process to establish the will of the people on a proposition – never had more than 37% of the support of the registered British voter. It was a Tory Party project and they lied about the people’s will. And they lie to the nation about everything. And they will continue to abuse human rights and justice with every rotten Brexit principle.

Labour’s pragmatism on Brexit sells out democracy

If this report is accurate, the leader of the Labour Party demonstrates pragmatism without principle. And I say that as a natural labour man, and sadly, because otherwise Starmer seems to be a good choice for the leadership of the Labour Party.

Brexit was a Tory con job with a mere 37% of registered voters in a referendum designed to elicit if there was a will of the people to leave the EU. There never was. So, you ask why have the Tories pursued this project?

Waking up to the British election results

What an appalling news to wake up to. As an overseas citizen I feel sold out, especially by the Labour Party which has shilly-shallied over Brexit for the sake of the Leave voting constituencies they lost anyway. I expected these Tory nationalists to sell us out in any case.

Well, Britain has just consigned itself to the dregs of a broken democracy. That is not to denigrate that part of democratic process – voting – which is an essential component, but to the more important parts of it: equity, social justice, an economy for all, efficient public services such as the NHS, an informed electorate, an honest media, honest and honourable representatives. In the latter respect, the Brexiteers fail the test and have dragged political discourse into the gutter, with Johnson barely outdone by the reprehensible Farage.

A SUNDAY THOUGHT ON THE UNDERLYING TREACHERY OF BREXIT

There is a sleazy, international body of espionage against democracy – the “advisors” and campaign consults who care nothing for democracy, employ neo-fascist populist strategies to manipulate public opinion with data-mining techniques, and construct the iterative and blatant lies that Boris Johnson, Donald Trump in the USA, and Australia’s Scott Morrison and their administrations and Ministers live and breathe.

They are the agent-provocateurs of a brand of neo-liberalism, so extreme that it is authoritarian to the core, that serves the wealthy and corporate greed at the expense of democratic government, and bullies backbenchers who exhibit any recalcitrance about the disturbing antics of their leaders.
