Will Clive Lewis be arrested for this?

Clive Lewis: his points about the monarchy are well-argued – but why isn’t he being arrested for them?

So: lots of people have been arrested for wanting to protest against the coronation today (May 6, 2023).

If you think there’s no need for them to have bothered, take a look at this, from Clive Lewis:

So the King has exempted himself from 160 laws, in order to amass billions of pounds of wealth – while three million kids are in poverty and struggling to find enough food to eat.

The argument that the monarchy is (at least partly) here to make huge disparities of wealth and power seem normal is, in This Writer’s opinion, persuasive.

That’s especially telling when you realise the UK Establishment is so frightened of opposition to the huge privilege it represents, that it will have people who want to demonstrate against it arrested without them even having committed a crime – as we have seen today.

So here’s the big question: why hasn’t Mr Lewis been arrested for making his video clip? It will have reached – and swayed – far more people than would have witnessed a street protest that news cameras could avoid.

I’m not arguing that he should be arrested – he’s one of the few remaining MPs that gives the Labour Party brand any validity at all.

But the fact that it hasn’t happened shows how ridiculous the arrests that actually took place really were.

    Ah, but then if he’s arrested people would take notice of what he was saying and the establishment certainly don’t want that. Imagine ordinary people looking deeper into why and what he was arrested for.
