UK has 75,000 political prisoners!

UK has 75,000 political prisoners!

According to Laffin: "Political prisoners are the victims of man's most vicious inhumanity to his own kind".

The author states: "[T]he climate under which political captivity is possible is not peculiar to certain countries and that it could easily be produced in those nations which consider themselves bastions of freedom, the United Kingdom and the United States, for example. Indeed, in both these nations some trends towards this climate are already disturbingly evident; the growth of bureaucracy is one of them. The only safeguards are a free press, a vigorous parliamentary opposition and an alert public. The second two cannot function without the first; the press is the first target of those men who are prepared" to commit inhumanity towards man.

In the UK we do not have a free press. It is controlled by meglomaniacs like Rupert Murdoch. The Prisoners Votes Case is evidence that the Tory party was anything but a vigorous parliamentary opposition. Compared to the Netherlands, for example, the UK public are not very alert at all. They slumber in ignorant bliss.

What will it take to wake them up?
