I have blogged a number of times in recent weeks about the danger for the PUL community in the Haass talks.As the days progress it becomes more apparent to me that these concerns are well founded and that indeed a deal has already been contrived by OFMDFM and what we are seeing at the minute and indeed have seen in recent weeks, including the kite flying by the OFMDFM appointed Attorney General John Larkin QC, is all a sham fight with the aim of bit by bit conditioning the minds of the electorate within the Nationalist and Unionist communities to believe that their representatives are fighting hard for a good deal. Nothing could be further from the truth.In the past 5 months I have consistently raised the issue of what I termed the justice sell out that allowed Sinn Fein to privately concede for the DUP's benefit that it was too early for the option of a SF Justice minister thus allowing the DUP to present to the Unionist electorate that they had fought off the Sinn Fein dragon and saved Justice. Once again nothing could be further from the truth.They had instead agreed to surrender both the Attorney general post and that of Director of the PPS to two men rubber stamped by Sinn Fein.The Haass talks are something very similar and we have seen John Larkin QC enter the political arena to fly the amnesty kite that was dismissed by Sinn Fein with the purpose of allaying any fears that they were in cahoots with Larkin, but the reality is that Larkin's comments where a carefully constructed political move on behalf of both Sinn Fein and the DUP.The DUP dismissed the amnesty idea only for two weeks down the line to 'consider' proposals for immunity.Sinn Fein had set the ball in motion at the beginning of this show play by publishing their idea of a truth commission.What has already been agreed is a middle of the road package, between the amnesty and truth commission.This will be concession number one.In my view the notion that the past can be solved is a mis-truth that arises from the folly of the Belfast Agreement which attempts to create a 'shared victory' which the architects and implementers perhaps genuinely hoped would translate into a shared peace but instead has followed the inevitable trajectory of appeasing Sinn Fein and granting concession after concession to Republicanism under the premise that politically appeasing is a lesser evil than politically resisting because if Sinn Fein do not get what Sinn Fein wants they will go back to violence.It is perhaps an unfair but nevertheless true saying that history is written by the victors.I do not believe victory can be shared and therefore I believe we are still very much in the midst of a conflict that is yet to be won or lost and the battlefield has merely changed from violent to political methods.If this indeed is the case, as I contend that it is, then until the conflict is resolved there can be no movement on the past because you have two opposite sides with very different narratives which are fundamentally incompatible and cannot co-exist coherently.The notion that you can have a shared narrative of a National conflict is illogical and therefore it is entirely reasonable to suggest that any deal will be merely another act of appeasement designed to try and keep both sides on board whilst ignoring the elephant in the room which is that we have reached a stage of the 'process' that will define it as a success or failure.The talks on flags and parades again reveal a critical point of the agreement. People like me contend that the peace bus is running out of road and the Agreement is being exposed for what it is.I cannot accept the notion that the flag of our Country should be the subject to equality legislation or equality arguments.The Union Flag is above all others. No other flag deserves to be treated equally to it, that is not sectarianism but instead a logical truth that should apply to any Country across the world.Would America give the Canadian flag the same status as their own so as to create equality?With increasing Polish and Chinese communities in Northern Ireland will we then also display their flags in line with equality legislation and grant them parity with the Union flag?This again leads me to the conclusion that these issues stem from the Belfast Agreement which instead of being accepted by Sinn Fein as a declaration of Northern Ireland's British identity until the majority decide otherwise has been used as a mechanism to drive an increasingly aggressive culture war against PUL culture and the British presence in Northern Ireland.Finally we come to parades, a vital piece in Sinn Fein's 'peace plan.'The chipping and chipping away has never been so evident than it is with parades.Indeed once again it is the mechanisms granted to Sinn Fein by the iniquitous Belfast Agreement that facilitate this cultural war.The creation of unelected quangos is a living legacy of the Belfast Agreement.Another legacy is the PSNI and PPS that play their role in the cultural war by criminalising expressions of PUL culture and squashing legitimate political dissent by the use of legislation designed to deal with terrorism.All of the above issues are at play within the Haass talks and I have no doubt that a deal has already been cooked up and as I said many weeks ago this deal with the inevitable concessions will not build another track for the peace train, it will instead fan the flames of resistance from people such as myself that feel the only way to build genuine and lasting peace is to de-rail the current piece by peace process.
LAD has this week been the topic of quite intensive debate and quite rightly so.The 'satire' site has little clear aims or objectives and seem to try and be all things to all people, remarkably like NI21 come to think of it.We have the LAD who try and act as a funny side of NI politics, they fail on this level because they don't stick to those who have willingly entered into the public political domain, instead they bully and spend their time picking on and 'exposing' political viewpoints different to their own extreme liberalism.If indeed LAD wanted to be genuinely light hearted and funny they would avoid themselves having such an aggressive political viewpoint and focusing all their energies specifically on one side of the community.Take a look at the Blame game, Give my head peace & the hole in the wall gang. Compare their stuff which is good natured and sticks to those who have willingly entered the political domain to that of LAD, the difference is startling.Another of the faceless 'faces' LAD likes to portray is that of the 'political commentator'. They fail on this level also.Their overly aggressive and at times angry and bitter analysis of any viewpoints different than their own makes a mockery of Impartial political commentating. At times when academics have challenged them they have resorted to angrily labelling them 'vile cunts'.Again, contrast this with Alex Kane.The recent attempt to legitimise themselves by latching on to a charity, which incidentally is run by Evangelical Christians, is bizarre in itself given LAD's vicious attacks on anyone seeking to uphold religious principles.LAD attempted to do something which is perhaps the grossest abuse of 'charity' aside from putting the money in your own pocket.They attempted to mock, vilify, poke fun at and bully one side of the community and make money out of doing so, albeit to donate to 'charity'. This is not real charity, this is an abuse of charity.Charity is giving at your own personal expense to help others.It is not deciding who you feel is fair game for people to ridicule and asking people to pay for the pleasure that comes at the expense of other individuals or communities.Could you imagine if a song was written which mocked the black community and then asked for people to donate to charity after having a good laugh at the others expense?LAD would be the first to 'expose' this racism. They however fail to see the irony in what they are doing and how it is no different than the above example.The SOSbus is a fantastic charity that was a victim of a hi-jack attempt by faceless, 'non-sectarian' 'anti-bigotry' bullies promoting their own acceptable brand of middle class sectarian bigotry.I encourage everyone to donate and give what you can directly to this wonderful charity that does great work. In giving directly you can ensure that others in need benefit from your giving, and no one has to suffer in the process.
The criminalisation of peaceful resistance and PUL culture is fanning the flames of loyalist resistance and feeding the ever growing reality that we are a people oppressed.Oppressed is a strong word and it's use attracts much mocking from Nationalists/Republicans and moderate Unionists, such as those behind LAD.This however is exactly how many within loyalism are feeling and the mocking by moderate Unionists, elements of the media and faceless persons such as LAD only serve to fan the flames and feed the ever growing feeling of isolation and oppression. These feelings give rise to a natural instinct of defiance and resistance. People such as LAD (whose 'front man' Brian John Spencer showed his pure hatred for the working classes by his performance on the Nolan show) who claim to be wanting what is best for Northern Ireland are actually the very people that are fueling the ever growing wave of resistance by their constant vilification and attacks on the PUL community. These attacks are grounded in hatred for the working class PUL community, it's not sectarian because many of those leading the hate campaign are actually Protestant and Unionist themselves, it is actually grounded in a middle class snobbery that looks down upon those of us from the working class community that place greater importance on our cultural and political identity than we do on social or financial status.This social/conventional media campaign and Judicial criminalisation of loyalists has had a deep affect on many of those on the receiving end of what has been little more than an orchestrated hate campaign of which the aim is the demoralisation and ultimate breaking of any resistance to the political status quo.I personally have no issue with this hate campaign that has been directed towards me, I was willing to put myself forward and therefore I take it with a pinch of salt. There are others however who have been on the receiving end of a wave of social media and at times conventional media abuse that is nothing more than bullying and actually causes a lot of hurt and isolation for people who have not themselves entered into the political world and who's only 'crime' is the expression of their cultural identity.Those such as LAD, who incidentally made their name of the back of flag protestors, only have any kind of status because of their relentless faceless vilification of those taking a stand for something they believe in. What do LAD REALLY stand for besides mocking Willie Frazer, Jamie Bryson, flag protestors and any Protestant that is unfortunate enough to disagree with the very obvious political viewpoint of those behind the faceless sites that troll the internet and pry on those with differing political views.Those behind LAD and other faceless accounts actually shine a light not on the 'sectarianism, bile or stupidity of flag protestors' but instead tell a story about those running LAD. They use a fake account to try and bully people of a different political viewpoint, does this not say something about their own personal issues which drive them to hide behind faceless bullying of those they view as an 'easy target'? Instead of using their own names and entering into legitimate political debate and articulating their views? Are they scared to say themselves what they say with their 'mask' on?They mock murals that depict masked men however they themselves are little more than masked bullies. I view them as cowards and bullies, I couldn't care less about them and you can mock, vilify and continue your hate campaign against people such as Willie Frazer and myself until the cows come home. In fact please do just that if it makes you feel better, it is much better than bullying people who have done nothing except express a personal political view or expressed their cultural identity. This bullying has deeply affected and hurt a lot of people and I hope sites like LAD are proud of themselves for the hurt they have caused some ordinary decent people by trying to humiliate them.The truth of why LAD try and humiliate people lies not in any fault on the part of those they mock, it lies in a deep seeded insecurity and personal want within those behind the site. This of course is hidden behind some warped justification of exposing sectarianism etc, essentially however it is for nothing more than the personal gratification of those angry and troubled masked individuals behind LAD and other sites.I feel sorry for those individuals that have felt very humiliated and hurt by the pathetic bullies behind LAD. Perhaps LAD should stick to getting their wee personal kicks out of slating those that actually put themselves out into the political domain and are happy enough to be fair game and leave ordinary decent people alone. Perhaps those behind LAD, who are so fearful of being unmasked, have at one time in their lives themselves been the victims of bullying or hatred. If so perhaps they should recall how this hurt them and deal with their own personal issues instead of projecting this onto the bullying of ordinary people simply expressing their cultural identity.
I have this morning reported to the PSNI a serious online threat that was directed towards myself and another high profile Loyalist via social media last night.The PSNI have shown in the past that they take every word and comment in its most literal sense and subsequently use the full force of the law to charge, remand and silence anyone who politically speaks out against the status quo.Given that this threat has threatened my life, I await to see if PSNI take the same approach.I personally feel that the PSNI have abused the law and taken comments out of context and blown them all out of proportion and criminalised Protestants for political purposes so given this I feel it is only fair that the PSNI use the same tactics across the board and treat the Republican community exactly the same.It can't be one rule for one side of the community and one or the other.The PSNI could not contain themselves when pursuing Ruth Patterson for wishful Facebook comments, so I am watching with interest to see how quickly the PSNI arrest this individual and given Ruth Patterson received a 28 day charge and heinous bail conditions I can only demand the same for what is altogether much more serious comments.The clock is ticking and I have asked PSNI to ensure they inform me when they have arrested this individual.This is an opportunity for the PSNI to prove that their ridiculous methods of policing at least are ridiculous across the board.
Statement ref: Sunday World (comic book) lies.To begin with let's be clear this story is nothing more than the PSNI trying to bat one back to me after the battering they have taken over the past week in relation to political policing.Employment issues are my personal business and I have no intention of paying lip service to this nonseical attempt to discredit me by a newspaper that is viewed by all right thinking people as a joke.A large element of this situation will be the matter of a police ombudsman investigation, and as the nature of the complaint refers to the PSNI breaching data protection regulations and discussing issues pertaining to myself with outside 'groups' & employers and passing mis-information to them, I feel it would be wholly inappropriate to comment any further at this time as it could prejudice that very important investigation which will lift the lid on the scale of corruption and illegality that is systematic amongst the PSNI, this includes encouraging groups to act outside of the law with immunity to silence political dissent.I have acted within the law at all times and have only been present in the taxi office to complete some voluntary training.This has already been confirmed via my Barrister.The matter is now in the hands of my legal team who already served notice on the Sunday World on Friday that should they proceed with this false story they would be the subject of serious legal action.These proceedings will begin with immediate effect on Monday.In closing I wish to advise the dirty forces at work that they will not succeed and that I will continue to speak the truth and do what is right for our God and our Country.The loyalist people of Ulster are making our stand for Civil rights and Civil rights is what we will achieve. No amount of witch hunts will change that.
It is a great travesty in some respects that the contrived charges against me have been dropped, because if they had of remained and the PSNI & PPS had of had the guts to try them in an open court, it would have exposed just how rotten and corrupt the PSNI and PPS.Below is the REAL factual story of the past 8 months including the officers who were named as being guilty of criminal offences in my interview tapes.......The PSNI were placed under extreme pressure by Sinn Fein/IRA, they needed to squash the people's protests, yet they had no method for doing so.So they took a decision to 'bend' the law and go after protestors in an attempt to break the spirit of others and somehow salvage the situation and provide cover for their own obvious failings that had come to light over the protests.The IRA met with the PSNI and took a decision to move against Willie Frazer and myself, in the hope that they could cut the voice from the protestors by taking out those who speak. Alex Maskey and Gerry Kelly laid the ground for this on the Nolan radio show effectively demanding my arrest (yet not able to say what actually for).The PSNI raided my home at 7:55 on 27th February 2013. I received a telephone call a few minutes before this informing me that a number of land rovers were heading my direction.I moved my car quickly and watched from nearby as the PSNI landed at my home.As I sat and watched them try and gain entry to the house I received a telephone call from the BBC for confirmation that I had been arrested. They had received a PSNI statement at 8am.I watched with amusement at the PSNI frantic attempts to locate me.I telephoned and spoke to the officer searching my property and asked if there was a warrant for my arrest, he informed me there was not.It was therefore very clear to me that I was under no obligation to hand myself into the PSNI as there was no warrant issued for my arrest.The police searched my home for a number of hours and then left, taking with them and failing to record a number of documents I had been working on relating to the Claudy bomb and other cover ups. It was just as well I had made a number of copies (not to worry, these will be realeased in due course)As the day went on the PSNI pantomime became more amusing as they firstly said there was a warrant, then withdrew their 8am statement and said their wasn't and generally got themselves in a bit of a tizz trying to rectify the situation and save their very obvious embarrassment.The following day Chief Superintent Nigel Grimshaw contacted Pastor Mark Gordon and said that he wanted to meet me. I went to Marks house in late afternoon and then the PSNI betrayed Marks confidence and raided his home.They later tried to charge him with obstruction. In another embarrassment for them he was found not guilty.I was arrested by an over excited sergeant who jumped up and down like a little school girl much to my amusement.I was taken to Musgrave Street and stated I would be refusing food and water whilst in police custody as I did not trust the PSNI. I did this contrary to nonsecial PSNI fed stories that I eat an 'Indian'. Anyone that knows me knows I do not eat Indian or spicy food and that I am a very plain eater.I only took food when I arrived at Maghaberry prison and was given nutrient bars.The support from the civil servant custody officers was overwhelming, they were quite rightly disgusted at the PSNI conduct.I was interviewed over a 36 hour period a number of times. In this period the PSNI repeatedly asked me about the Ulster People's Forum and it's structure. I think they thought it was a terrorist organisation.They provided not one shred of evidence and generally made themselves look very silly.The soon to be released interview tapes will expose this.I was charged and told I would be refused police bail. I informed police I would not be accepting police bail anyhow and I would go before a Judge in the Court of my Queen.Once again contrary to popular black propaganda I never told anyone to refuse bail, I wrote a Facebook post saying that if you were offered police bail with ludicrous conditions you should refuse it and ask to be brought before the local magistrate. Anyone who wishes can research the particular statement and see for themselves what I actually said. The confusion arose from an Irish news headline which read 'don't take bail , go to jail' but even if you read the actual story below it you would have seen what I was actually saying.When I was brought before the magistrate the detective constable took the stand and regaled the Court of the dangers of the Ulster People's Forum and informed the judge of the very real dangers of letting me out, including that I might appear on the Nolan show. The detective also lied under oath and said I had locked myself in a bedroom. This was later proven to be untrue and PSNI arrest statements prove this.The PSNI themselves contradicted this in later court proceedings. No action was taken against the officer for perjury and I was remanded into Custody on the basis of a risk of 'flight'.I appeared at Belfast High Court on the Friday at a hearing presided over by Bernard McCloskey QC, former barrister for the parades commission. Not only did Mr McCloskey sit in judgement over me, who was charged in relation to breaching parades commission regulations, but he spent the hearing giving a political speech about how the Judiciay were non political. Not surprisingly given the impartially issues, he refused bail.I eventually did received bail after just over 4 weeks and had the strictest conditions available placed upon me. These conditions were demanded by a female Investigating officer who took it upon herself to lead the witch hunt against myself and William Frazer.This particular officer had requested both our cases specifically and decided that she would take charge of our 'prosecutions'. Needless to say she made a right pigs ear of that. It is an abiding memory of the recent court proceedings watching her face on fury as I arrived at Belfast Court in support of another protestor following a change in my bail that removed the 4 mile from City hall condition. She was furious and demanded to know how I was allowed to be there. I throughly enjoyed watching her explode. This was around the time they managed to get themselves into a corner about letting me lay a rembrance wreath and after being led on a merry dance ended up losing that battle aswell. Perhaps the vendetta she had taken on was causing more stress than expected.Over the following months the PPS pandered to the PSNI by continuing to join them in this grave abuse of judicial process and week after week told lie after lie to the judge and presented trumped up objection after trumped up objection to try and drag out the inevitable as long as possible. The inevitable was the withdrawing of the charges because (A) it was clear that they were the most ludicrous charges possible and (B) I had named senior police officers, including an ACC in my interview tapes and asked it be recorded that I was stating, on record, that they encouraged the weekly walk to take a different route to avoid the main part of Short Strand flashpoint and therefore if it actually was an illegal procession then the said PSNI officers were actually complicit and guilty of 'encouraging or assisting offenders'.Essentially the fact still remains, if the PSNI are now contending that the weekly walk was illegal then the officers who sat in meetings and made deals about which route the walk should take are guilty of co-conspiring in an offence and they should be arrested.Any of the officers I have named have yet to be questioned.I will be making an official criminal report naming these officers in the coming days prior to the release of my interview tapes.Eventually the PSNI and PPS ran out of lies to tell, not before they tried one final throw of the dice disregarding the cost to the public or the public Interest test and they tried to run two trials. They realised this would lead to more embarrassment and given that should the Serious Crime Act charges proceed senior police officers including the ACC and Divisional commanders would be placed under oath and asked did they consent to the procession they now claim was illegal and asked if they made any other deals...the PSNI quickly scrambled to ensure that it would never see the light of day. Fortunately the interview tapes will see the light of day.This is a brief summary of what actually happened and hopefully it will dispel some well concocted mis truths and set the record straight.
At the beginning of this submission I wish to point out this is an individual submission on behalf of myself and in no way claims to articulate the views of any other person or group.
From the outset I am making very clear that I believe these talks are fatally flawed, and whilst I am not in any way criticising you or your team, I believe there are a number of issues which lead me to this conclusion.
I feel that the community I come from has been sold a pup, so to speak, in regards to the peace process.
Whilst I appreciate that you are not here to deal with the set up of Government, I feel it is important to set the correct context for this submission.
We are denied the right to have an opposition and instead have an enshrined veto granted to those who's very aim is to destroy this Country. This veto was granted to them as a political deal acheived through violence and the threat of violence.
Those around the table will seek to address the legacy of the past. I contend that it shouldn't needed addressed, it is clear for all to see that we had a terrorist organisation seeking to destroy the State. The legacy of the past has become an issue because of Sinn Fein's attempts to create a narrative of the past that in some way justifies their unjustifiable deeds.
There can be no compromise on this issue, to do so is to legitimise the actions of enemies of the state.
Would America sit around the table with Al Queda and allow them to justify 9/11?
Sinn Fein/IRA are a day and daily living example of what can be acheived through violence and mayhem, they have yet to say what they did was wrong. They glorify it.
In terms of flags and parades it all goes to the core issue and that is that for some twisted reason the people of N.Ireland are expected to share our Country with those who wish to destroy it. I again ask, would America share space with Al Queda?
Shared space and true peace can only come about when all political parties and groups accept Northern Ireland as a Country and desist from seeking to piece by piece dismantle it.
The Sinn Fein manufactured issue of flags should not be an issue, it is a matter of National pride and where else would you have to beg or negotiate to flag the fly of your own Country.
This is non negotiable in my eyes.
The parading issue is complicated by the fact that the iniquitous Belfast agreement grants more power to an unelected quango such as the parades commission that it does to elected politicians and sets the threshold extremely high for when the Secretary of State can even overturn any of the illogical and bizarre decisions.
This commission has acted in the same vain as the Belfast Agreement, it has rewarded Republicna violence and the threat of violence.
Those in the room with you Mr Haas are the elected reps and they have a huge mandate but I must warn that there is a significant amount of people in the loyalist community who feel unrepresented in the talks and who are of my view, that the PUL community has given up enough. Why take part in talks when you have nothing to give?
I believe this process will end with the Unionist reps giving up more ground and ultimately this will create more discontent from the sizeable minority who will resist any further compromise and effectively any compromise made will actually fan the flames of loyalist resistance even more.
Of course you may choose to ignore this and indeed it is only my view which carries no more weight than any other individual, but I firmly believe that these talks may find some agreement but to do so there will have to be more compromise and there is a sizeable minority within loyalism that will not accept this.
Indeed I think you will find the sizeable minority will swell considerably should there be any more 'deals' with Sinn Fein.
The core truth of the matter is that you cannot compromise with those that wish to destroy your Country.
Appeasement only makes the aggressor more agressive.
Following today's decision by Judge Fiona Bagnall I am delighted my basic human rights have been re-instated.The Judiciary today fulfilled it's constitutional obligation to protect the people from state political witch hunts.I wish to fully support a return to lawful and peaceful flag protests in the run up to the anniversary of the tearing down of our National flag and whilst I have no part in the organisation of the anniversary protest on 30th November, I applaud those who do and I am sure that they will not bow to the pressure being brought by the PSNI and elected politicians. We have a right to lawful and peaceful protest, it is the essence of free democratic society.Those organising the November 30th protest have shown themselves to be unbreakable in their spirit and loyalty to our cause. I have nothing but the utmost respect for those protestors.The flag protests always belonged to the people, each and every person who took to the street. They where the people's protests and no individual had or should have any greater say over them than another.Many protestors have suffered terribly at the hands of the PSNI and many are still stuck in the Judicial system that has become a mechanism for the PSNI to abuse judicial process to try and silence political dissent.I was lucky in that my case was able to be highlighted publicly and thus show the PSNI up for the farce that they are. Others have been treated even worse than me and had it swept under the carpet. We mustn't forget those who stood alongside each and every one of us for a common cause.We must once again unite and recapture the spirit of the fledging months of our historic and defiant stand. We must put aside personal differences and unite behind one flag, the old Red, White and Blue.Our cause is just, it always was. The PSNI campaign of political persecution and violence against our people cannot change that fact.Nor can they change the fact that lawful and peaceful protest is legal and a constitutional and historic British right. It might not suit their political masters but unfortunately I (and I am sure most flag protestors would agree with me) don't really care about what the PSNI political opinion is.I am led to believe that plans are afoot to resume province wide peaceful and lawful protests. I hope this comes to fruition."When we all stand together, we forever shall be free"
Following today's formal withdrawal of the 'serious crime act' charges that were brought against me I wish to register my disgust that these charges were allowed to continue for over 8 months when I, and everyone else knew that they were nothing but a holding charge to try and somehow justify a remand into prison and to give some legislative cover for the draconian and oppressive bail conditions imposed upon me.PSNI objected to bail on many outrageous issues including the fact that I 'could talk to the media' or had 'influence over others.' No where else in the world would this be accepted in a free democracy.Some of the the widely reported comical issues included PSNI objecting to me being allowed to have a curfew extended to play football due to my 'influence' have been nothing but an embarrassment for the PSNI.They were so desperate they were actually willing to make a mockery of themselves just to somehow try and keep my quiet. Shame on them.The refusal of my bail by Bernard McCloskey QC, a high court judge that spent 5 minutes giving a political speech about how the Judiciary were not political was one of the most bizarre decisions one would see in any democracy. The man is the former QC for the parade commission, that shows you the level of 'impartiality' that exists.These Islamist hate preacher charges were never going to stick so the question must be asked, why were the PSNI allowed and indeed aided and abetted by the PPS in dragging this out for 8 months with mis-truths at best, with the sole purpose of keeping me on ludicrous bail conditions. It was a joke from the 28th February and the PSNI tactics would make North Korea look like human rights pioneers.This was a political game from the start and today finally the PSNI and PPS have found themselves with no more options having made so much of a mockery of the Justice system, they literally ran out of lies to tell.A Court cannot impose conditions upon a man that are not relevant to his charges and therefore I fully expect and demand that all conditions that place any restriction on my free speech or right to address my peers or talk to the media are removed immediately. I will not abide by conditions that are unlawful, oppressive and have no legal justification to be there. It is the equivalent of lifting a man of the street with no charges and placing conditions upon him because his political opinion does not suit. I have abided by these ridiculous conditions whilst there was legal and legislative justification while the charges remained for 8 months, not out of any respect for the PSNI, who I view with nothing but distain, but out of respect for the Court of my Queen who imposed them. Now that the relevant charges have been withdrawn I will not abide by conditions that amount of nothing more than oppression and internment of free speech.Ulster is still free and if the PSNI and those that joined with them thought they would somehow change my mind or 'silence' me they have made the biggest mistake ever. They have made me more determined to destroy this contrived process of appeasement.They have made a mistake. Sometimes a mistake is like spilling your coffee, theirs is more like invading Russia in the winter.I have no regrets, I am unrepentant and am unapologetic for anything I have done or said. I stand by it because it was right. The Protestant people of Ulster are right to peacefully stand in defiance of tyranny. Never apologise for resisting evil."Ulster I do this for you"
It comes to me as no shock that having received the FOI response from the PPS that it has become apparent that PPS reps in Belfast Magistrates Court have been telling what are at best mis-truths and have mis-lead the Judge on a number of occasions.The PPS stated on record in Belfast Magistrates Court that "cases with media attention, according to internal PPS guidelines, require the DPP to personally make the charging decision." This was the excuse for refusing to make a charging decision on a case that has been before the Court for over 8 months and where all the evidence was ready at the time of the contrived arrest.I requested, via FOI, the PPS to furnish me with a copy of these so called guidelines. Their response was this;I can advise there is no such written
PPSpolicy or guidelines stipulating when and if cases attracting media attention should be referred.This for me raises extremely serious questions. Either the PPS reps in Laganside Court are working to guidelines they themselves have made up or they have purposefully mis-lead the judge with the aim of dragging a case out for political purposes.Secondly I also requested of the PPS figures for how many times since the introduction of the Serious Crime Act 2007 has a person been charged with Section 46 when the alleged encouraging offence was a 'summary only' matter. The response was unsurprising but again raises serious questions about political agendas at work in trying to keep a case hanging on before a Court for as long as possible. It was this;No summary prosecution decisions have ever been issued for offences under Section 46 of the Serious Crime Act 2007 and two suspects have received no prosecution decisions.This again raises serious issues and surely any person could see that the PPS in conjunction with the PSNI have contrived charges, mis-used legislation and abused the judicial process amid lying to the Court for the purposes of squashing legitimate political dissent.Freedom of speech is an important right within any democratic society and it will be interesting to see how the PPS/PSNI deal with the facts laid out in this statement. Any move to further silence any awkward questions that would seek to expose their wicked agenda will prove beyond all reasonable doubt that they will go to any lengths necessary to prevent the truth coming out.
