Civil disobedience: would parents be irresponsible to send their children back to school now?

Closed: schools in England should stay that way because the Tory government cannot guarantee that they are safe – and parents will be legally responsible if their children catch Covid-19 while following the government’s demand that they attend.

If English parents send their children back to school on Monday (June 1), they will carry responsibility if their child catches Covid-19 as a result.

It seems the Tory government isn’t telling anybody about that part of the law on parental responsibility.

This Writer is grateful to one such parent, who writes:

You have a legal obligation to not send your child anywhere you believe to be unsafe.

If you suspect your child is going to be harmed and you send them anyway and they get harmed, you are legally liable.

You cannot be made non-liable either, not while you have parental responsibility and they can’t penalise you for fulfilling a legal obligation.

So the law seems clear, in the time of the Covid-19 pandemic:

There is no guarantee that children will be safe from catching this potentially deadly disease at school.

If they catch it, then it doesn’t matter whether they show symptoms or not – they will still be vulnerable to the variant of Kawasaki disease that has proved fatal in several cases both in the UK and around the world.

Parents have a responsibility to keep children away from places where they may be endangered – and these places currently include schools.

If the child catches Covid-19, or contracts the Kawasaki variant, at school then the parent will be legally responsible for it – not the Tory government that demanded that the child must go back to school.

So the law tells us that parents must keep their children away from school, no matter what the government says.

Martial law plan for post-Brexit Britain shows This Site was right again

Theresa and the troops: I used this image in my previous article on martial law, but it seems she really does mean to rely on them to keep her in power after she stubbornly forces the worst possible Brexit on us all.

I know it’s a dodgy source – The Sunday Times – but if it is accurate, the claim in that paper that the Conservative government is preparing to declare martial law marks the third in a series of correct predictions for Vox Political, despite the claims of some readers.

People told me Jaguar Land Rover was making decisions because of wider economic reasons than Brexit – until a press release from the company made it clear that uncertainty over that situation was directly responsible for the decision to halt production for an extra week during the summer.

After my story about the double standards that allowed Rachel Riley to complain that she needed extra security on Countdown because of death threats, after she brought death threats down on an innocent teenage girl with anxiety issues by falsely tweeting that she was an anti-Semite, I predicted that Ms Riley’s followers would revive the false accusations against me – and they did.

And now: Do you remember a commenter on this site stating, “3,500 troops could not enforce martial law on a country of 60 million,” after I stated it suggested Theresa May was preparing to impose martial law on the UK after a “no deal” Brexit? Well, it seems I was right again.

In that previous article, I stated: “Martial law would preserve her government – sorry, dictatorship – against the civil unrest that her policies seem certain to provoke.”

Now we discover (I got this from the i, as I refuse to pay money to the Murdoch machine): “Britain is preparing to declare a state of emergency and introduce martial law in the event of disorder after a no-deal Brexit, according to officials who say the Cobra emergency committee will be able to deploy the army to quell rioting.”

The i article states: “Powers available under the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 would allow ministers to impose curfews, travels bans, confiscate property and deploy the armed forces to quell rioting.

It quoted a Sunday Times source who said: “The over-riding theme in all the no-deal planning is civil disobedience and the fear that it will lead to death in the event of food and medical shortages.”

And another source said a no-deal Brexit would be “about a thousand times worse” than the volcanic ash cloud crisis of 2010, adding: “The only other thing that would be comparable would be something like a major Europe-wide war.”

Inevitably, the claim has provoked a strong response from the public:

Of course, martial law is an extreme measure that would be imposed only in dire need – or if a government is desperate to keep power in spite of the will of the people.

Do you trust Theresa May not to follow the latter path?
