The attack on #courts and #democracy was a #Tory #manifesto promise. Didn’t you know?

RIP democracy: this image of Boris Johnson in a Hitler moustache was stuck to the door of the Conservative office in Beverley, near Hull, earlier this year.

This is nothing new:

Funny how The Times has only just learned of the Johnson government’s plan to overrule court rulings, in December 2021, when it was in the Conservative manifesto for the December 2019 general election almost two years ago!

Yes, Boris Johnson backpedalled for a little while, but that’s a classic Tory tactic; they lure you into a false feeling that everything’s going to be all right and then they stab you in the back.

If it’s good enough for them when they’re electing leaders, then they’re not going to see any reason not to do it to you. Right?

It is an offence against democracy and a step into elected dictatorship – but you knew that already because This Site told you.

So did the nearly 14 million people who voted for it. Right?


They didn’t know?

They just voted Tory because they wanted to get out of the European Union so badly they didn’t care what else happened over the next five years?

Oh, wow. And – hey! – The Times could have told them all about it back in 2019 but didn’t?

That’s a real shame.

It’s also the reason people are told, time and time again in their lives, to RTFM.

In this case, it means Read The F-ing Manifesto!

Too late now.

Because this is one manifesto promise that Boris Johnson is hell-bent on keeping.

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.

    Little fascist dictator duck johnson keeps just one promise and that is to destroy democracy and instigate a fascist little england wherein we peasants will be monitored on every aspect of our lives to ensure we don’t challenge the fascists in power!

    Laws only apply to us peasants not the fascist male criminals currently residing in fake government! So all the stupid morons who voted for the fascist tories need not complain because this is what they voted for – a totalitarian fascist state!

    Party manifestos come out later and later, less is discussed about them than ever before. Soundbites, attack ads and cliched catchphrases get you to elect either the ‘funny man in a suit’ or the ‘slick man in a suit’ but never the ‘serious politician in a suit’

    People vote either tribally (not knowing what they just voted for) or for whoever seems nicest/funniest and has a good catchphrase. I can understand why people disengage from politics, the more you know the worse it is..
