Coronation of King Charles is marred by anti-democratic PRE-arrests of protesters

Shame of the nation: police arrested opponents of the Monarchy before they even had a chance to protest the coronation of Charles III. Here, they were arresting Graham Smith, chief executive of the anti-Monarchist group Republic – and look how many of them were apparently needed to do it!

UK citizens who oppose the Monarchy were arrested before the coronation ceremony in shocking scenes that have made a mockery of democracy in this country and indicate that King Charles is truly the head of a fascist state.

This Writer sits vindicated. I warned this would happen and others denied it. Now it has come to pass.

Police used powers under the newly-passed Public Order Act, that were specially rushed into operation for the coronation, to suppress any opposition to the event.

Democratic nations do not lock up dissenters before they have even had a chance to voice their complaint.

But – well, see for yourself – and take note of the comments by the social media users posting about this:

Yes, the Home Secretary is responsible for this:

Listen to the vagueness of the warnings issued by police (and remember that they are “just following orders” as the saying goes:

Do you think that man’s words actually meant anything, considering what was to follow?

I tend to disagree with Dr Galsworthy. This is what Britain is, and what British police are. I’ve seen them used as political tools, ever since I was old enough to be aware of national events.

So I tend to side with Kerry-Anne, below:

We did indeed warn you. We’ve been warning you for more than a decade (in my case alone). Some of us have been warning you for much longer than that.

It is some comfort, at least, that some politicians are on the right side of history here:

Only 25 per cent? This draconian display has undoubtedly turned more of us against the status quo:

It is as Russ Jones (whose The Week In Tory has been a highlight of Twitter) states:

The arrests have backfired on those who arranged them because all they have achieved is more – and hopefully larger – protest:

Jeremy Corbyn – as ever – makes the most insightful point about this – the fact that the arrests show the majority of us are, by law, at the mercy of a tiny minority who have all the wealth, status and power, and that those who made the law that allows the arrests, together with those who are enforcing it, are not acting out of patriotism but despotism:

This Writer, staring in shock at the photographic evidence, briefly considered whether the newly-crowned King could smooth matters over with a statement deploring the heavy-handed treatment of UK citizens who had not committed a crime.

Sadly, even if he was inclined to do so, that would probably be considered unconstitutional. He’s not supposed to interfere in political matters – even if they are directly related to him.

In this, he is as much a puppet of the politicians in power as the rest of us.

    The Tories have taken far too much away from us and taken far too many liberties with us and from us.
    It’s only a matter of time until they learn what other Fascist Dictatorships in the past did – People with Nothing , Have Nothing to Lose…..

    Fascist tories forgot to bring their tanks when they ordered the puppet fascist Metropolitan police boys and girls to arrest innocent women and men! Where are the tanks fascist tories?? You must remember China’s dictators did the same when peaceful protesters attempted to challenge the dictatorship and then the tanks arrived!

    Welcome to fascist tory little england! Can’t wait for the fascist tories to order their police puppets to arrest anyone who engages in strike action. Expect striking nurses and doctors to be arrested for supposedly ‘breaching public order’ or causing ‘a disturbance!’

    By the way fascist tories you forgot to issue orders to the Northern Ireland police forces to arrest anyone who engages in peaceful protest against the coronation!!
