Free speech under attack – again

‘HATE CRIME’ BILL THREATENS FREEDOM TO SPEAK ABOUT MARRIAGE

Dear Marriage supporter

It’s going to be more difficult to disagree with same-sex ‘marriage’ in Scotland – and in the rest of the UK. The new ‘hate crime’ Bill there seems to confuse disagreement with hatred.

C4M is particularly concerned as there is no free speech clause on marriage (unlike England, Wales and Northern Ireland). Our sister organization, Scotland for Marriage, has circulated the following:

“The proposals, currently making their way through the Scottish Parliament, have drawn strident criticism from every corner …

For us WTO terms beats any deal EU27 can offer

A clean break from the dying EU is what we need. Why should the world’s fifth largest economy concern itself with a mob of bailed out beggars?

It’s pointless wasting any more time talking to them. They are not negotiating in good faith and never have.

Nothing they can offer in terms of a deal is as good for the UK as trading with them on WTO terms. I said nothing THEY can offer. We should certainly sign off a deal …

Boris the Horrible mulls over purge of the ‘old’ English

Around 1,600 people on average died each week in the UK from all causes, pre-pandemic.

The news that government is considering ordering a lockdown based on age rather than clinical risk shows where this is going: a purge of the old English from their jobs.

We’ve already seen how the NHS discharged patients known to be infected with SARS-CoV-2 back to inadequately equipped care homes, causing many thousands of avoidable deaths.

The conversion of now surplus office and retail premises to housing and scrapping of …

GRO bags are full of it

THIS IS WHY C4M IS NEEDED

Dear Marriage supporter

First the UK Government imposed same-sex marriage on Northern Ireland without the consent of its governing Assembly. Then, with the new regulations coming into force in September, the General Register Office for Northern Ireland (GRO) seemed intent on making life difficult for those who dissent.

Churches in Northern Ireland were alarmed in July to receive a letter from the GRO informing them that, unless they responded within a month with details of whether they would be carrying out same-sex …

We shall win the match in the second half

There is no such thing as “a level playing field” in trade. For the last forty-seven years the opportunity cost of joining the EEC has been that the playing field has sloped towards our goalposts and the other EEC/EU countries have exploited the fact to our detriment.

Halftime is now over, we’re changing ends and we should develop to the full the potential competitive advantage provided by freeing ourselves from the strait jacket of the dying EU.

No FTA with the …

The magic money-go-round

Let me see if I understand this correctly.

In brief: we spend fourteen billion pounds a year of taxpayers’ money on ‘aid’ to foreign governments, many of whom are guilty of appalling human rights violations and are the antithesis of democratic, in order that they may then use the money to bribe and corrupt our own elected politicians.

Furthermore, it’s not even money we have in the bank. It’s money we have to borrow, mortgaging the future of our young people in order to do so.

Meanwhile our …

Go WTO

With our public finances mortgaged to the max for years to come because of the government’s panicky shut down of the economy, freeing ourselves from the one-sided trading relationship with the EU is even more essential than it was pre-pandemic.

WTO terms will enable us to develop greater self-sufficiency across a range of existing and new UK industries, providing much needed jobs and reducing the deficit.

Our consumers will benefit from cheaper food, clothing and footwear with no loss of quality.

We shall be free to …

Plan-it Lib-Lab-Con

Belgium had one of the strictest lockdowns and the world’s highest Covid deaths per million population.

For a country like the UK with pretensions to being a democracy a degree of herd immunity is the only way forward long term.

A vaccine will help a little, just as it does with other strains of coronavirus we term the flu. But as these viruses mutate rapidly and generally in the direction of diminished lethality it is not a ‘magic bullet’.

There is no evidence that lockdowns, or …

A response to the Chancellor’s mini-budget

With all of this climate change we hear about endlessly we should soon be able to grow coconuts in southern England.

If we train the post-millennials to pick them we wouldn’t need to import coconut milk and other similar products from countries such as Thailand, which would help the public finances and gradually over time eliminate the budget deficit.

If we restore the coal industry similar considerations would apply and this would also, in theory, help to speed up the rate of global warming, hence …

The pandemic is a pretext for cultural revolution

What Did You Do In The War?

Dr Vernon Coleman MB ChB DSc FRSA

There is no doubt that the world is full of a good many bizarre and unsupportable claims and notions. Trying to pick your way through the quagmire of claims, counter-claims and general nonsense is harder than it has ever been.

The basic problem, of course, is that governments and official sounding organisations have been lying, deceiving and manipulating since the coronavirus first emerged from hiding and yelled `boo’.

All honesty has gone out of the …
