Gagging Law 3rd Reading – How all MPs voted

October 10th, 2013 by


If your MP voted ‘aye’ to amendments 101 or 102, and if they voted ‘no’ at the 3rd reading, then they voted in favour of scrapping the bad parts of the bill. Some MPs had a mixture of votes, so they spoke out against the bill, but have not fully committed to fixing or scrapping the bill.

    “Too many MP’s are in it for themselves”how very true.This bill is in defiance of everything that being British stands for,the right to protest either by action or words.
    A black day for democracy indeed

  • John Magnam

    When laws are made to shut up any opposition or whistle-blowing of crimes, it’s reminiscent of the not too distant past. Apathy and ceaseless propaganda from those who really run this world, has already taken us 50 years backwards!

    What strikes me about this is the incredibly high correlation between party membership and voting pattern. Although it is good that a few ConDem MPs went against what was obviously their party line, the fact that so many simply supported their respective party lines suggests that this, and presumably many other, important issues are more or less decided by party leaders alone. That would mean that democracy is barely functioning, with half of MPs probably having no clue about the issues involved at all (i.e. not doing what they are paid for). With any luck the Lords will have more spare time on their hands and will at least be able to vote according to an informed opinion.

    I also noticed that several Labour MPs were absent and did not vote at all (which amounts to abstention), while others were absent but seemed to vote by telephone, assuming thats what “telaye” means.

  • LadyRebel

    Makes me wonder why they want gagging laws, they only protect them that have something they do not want uncovering. Gagging orders are a freedom of speech, why should one person opposite to the other able to have a gagg put on someone who may want the world to know they have been convicted, hug drawn and quartered or desperately trying to prove corrupt set up its not morally right. After all if someone does or says something that is a threat they can be dealt with appropriatley. However in cases where I have researched many family courts put gagging orders on them who want to expose the cover ups and corruption by social services, judges and solicitors. So what are we saying as a nation? MP’s and any other heirachy can gagg them who expose them, so that means all these rich peodos such as saville, the shanigans of cyril smith will all be kept covered up because they can do so because they can, yet somone who wants to expose the TRUTH, gets gagged, seems a pretty rich unfair society to me where the rich and mp’s and the like can do what they heck they dam well like but telling a story or exposing them a gagging order will come into affect. Well all I can say is welcome whistleblowers, in every employment, in every work environment, infact every situation, a new born whislteblower will rear their head to injustice and expose whatever. There will always be a paper, an internet site a voice a demonstration that will get heard, so if I was the government I would think long and hard before you create a world full of whistleblowers, they are welcome in my eyes, as far as I am concerned you take away our rights then we will fight back, after all its only the rich who have dirty, theiving, sneaky, lying secrets that must stay hush hush, gag gag.

    we need to keep the pressure on—-we the little people need to be heard—assuming we are still a democracy!!! We need to go forward not backwards. Therefore keep up the pressure on the powers that be.

  • Eddie Bulfin

    Will those MP’s who were absent for all readings get their salaries deducted for not the days they were not there? ONLY JOKING, I know they get paid no matter what they do or where they are, but id does seem a little like cowardice on the part of those who missed all reading of the bill. Yes; Doctor Andrew Murrison I mean you.

  • ChessyPig

    ‘Absent’ in this list doesn’t necessarily actually mean absent – the data source this is from doesn’t distinguish between ‘wasn’t there’ and ‘didn’t vote’. Quite a lot of MPs abstained as a form of opposition to this vote because they agree with the general idea of the bill (to control lobbyists) but not the current implementation.

    It’s quite simple, and NOTHING else fits: we have TRAITORS in power, influenced by people behind the scenes. Never mind left versus right, it’s rich – that is, NOT the 1%, but more like the 1% of the 1% – versus the poor (everybody not in the 1% of 1% is, by definition, in the poor camp).

  • Jonathan Louis Trapman

    My MP Tessa Munt voted no for Amendments and yes for the Government Gagging Law passed to the Lords yesterday. She told me that as she was in a special position to affect the Cabinet due to being an inner circle MP she was forced to vote with the Gov or lose that privilege. She said being there she could help our wishes better.
    Well, look what she has achieved, something I DID NOT WANT – where is the bloody spine for resistance. It certainly is not found sleeping with the enemy, for God’s sake.

  • Disgruntled

    Do I smell FEAR within Government? My current MP (Tim Yeo) has severely disappointed me by voting “Aye” and It could very easily turn me away from the Conservative Party altogether. I thought that a ‘level playing field’ was a basic requirement for democracy. Strange how wrong one can be eh? Let’s hope that the House of Lords will show some sense and dump the whole thing in the Thames. Organisations like 38Degrees give me a chance to be heard. To effectively ‘gag’ them is totally wrong.

  • Duncan

    From the footer of the email that James sent out:

    [1] There were three vital votes in Parliament last night on the gagging
    law. The first (amendment 101) was a vote on what sort of expenditure
    would fall within the law, whilst the second (amendment 102) was a vote
    to raise the spending limits imposed by the law on non-party
    organisations. The third important vote was the “Third Reading”, which
    was a vote on the whole gagging law.

We will never have a peoples government unless people wake up and see how we are all being fooled with lies and the theiving hands in the pots , so your right George it will always be a black democracy inn the UK

  • Peta Jane

    Firstly my MP allows his secretary to be away so he gets to ignore all the emails and decides to vote against it. But on the 3rd reading after reading our opinions(I hope) he ignores his constituents and vote aye with his government. So he chose to ignore me! Perhaps I should send a letter next time to his house.

  • Baldalot the Bold

    I find myself increasingly fed up with my MP (Owen Paterson) who, upon checking, appears to have been absent for this vote on the gagging order. I have yet to meet anyone who has a good word to say about him – although I have heard many good words that describe him. His grinning mug appears in the local papers with sickening regularity whenever someone opens something (supermarket, envelope etc.) but I cannot find out much about his track record, even though he’s been the MP around here for a long time.
    Letters I have sent to him since moving to this area 10 years ago have been answered with pro forma replies which, I guess, have been quoting the ‘party line’ and fail to give any indication that he actually understands anything about the topic of the letter/email.
    He makes much of the fact that he represents a rural community, yet votes against the interests of his constituents as far as I can see.
    Frankly, I’d like to see the voting public get the ability to implement a motion of ‘no confidence’ in their elected representative and force their removal (pension included) from office at, let’s say,12 months notice. If nothing else, it would concentrate their minds on exactly who they serve i.e. not themselves.

  • Jim Fisher

    Lucy: In the first two columns (the amendments) it’s “aye” to support the amendments (what we wanted). In the third column “no” is a vote against the third reading (what we wanted). So most Tories and LibDems voted the other way, while Green and Labour, plus a few rebels, did what we wanted.

    However, it begs the question why the opposition leader was absent for such an important debate……Does anyone know what pressing issue kept him away?

  • Nicholas Dove

    Perhaps it is time, in view of the unending attacks on our civil liberties, to remind the government that in a democracy, it is government by consent.

    Gandhi defeated the British Empire with Ahimsa, non-violent non-co-operation.
    Has the time come for this to be considered as a possible way of showing the government that enough is enough, and that even if they have forgotten what a free society is about, we, the public have not done so, and are willing to peacefully, defy their betrayal of our rights to a free and democratic society, where all are entitled to express their opinions freely, and join together in free association to object to the insidious conversion of our democracy into a totalitarian state.

    I e-mailed my concerns to my local MP and among the quite long reply was:

    “Please rest assured that this Bill certainly does not silence any group, let alone threaten the democratic freedoms of individuals.”

    Not sure what this Governmennt is trying to do to us proles but as a believer in “you can fool half the people…… etc. etc.” I think as usual that they are underestimating the British Public and this is not finished yet.

    It is also interesting that the Bill may infringe the European ruling on “Freedom of Expression” which would have all the europhiles wondering which way to turn!

    A list with the names of every man that died in the 1st and 2nd world war should be placed on the desks of every MP and ask them what it was all for, as any freedom they fought for is almost lost and when we lose our voice we loss it all and the only thing left open to the British population is to stand together and demand the government out, for not listening to the people.

  • Joe Public

    You haven’t seen it on the news (via mainstream media!) for the very simple reason that, as is the case with the NHS being privatised at an alarming rate (www.healthemergency.org and http://www.keepournhspublic.com), at some point a mass media blackout on the matter has been engineered between politicians, top tiers of the media sector and certain entrepaneurs such as branson (virgin care).

  • Joe Public

    Keep digging n delving, get involved in a local issue (such as the Lewisham hospital campaign where labour hold the council seat) and you`ll soon learn of the cheap, nasty, dirty tricks that so-called labour politicians play. You need to understand that many, many labour politicians, mainstream and local, have financial vested interests in private healthcare provision! That’s why no mass opposition to the `Health and Social Care Act 2012` which completely opened the floodgates to the `health market`! That in itself should tell you all you need to know about them and so-called democracy.

  • Joe Public

    1 thing I want you all to understand before I logoff: Its so easy to surround yourself regularly, perhaps almost totaly, with other activists and like-minded people and believe that the whole world thinks like you, wants this gov out and a beter future built. That’s very dangerous thinking and can lead to complacency. There are so many politically unengaged out there, those with their head firmly in the sand, those for whom celebrety TV is a central life focus. In addition there are legions of folk whom you wouln`t expect to vote for this lot come May 2015, traditional sun-reading working class tories who believe every single utterance from their chosen source of media (NHS is crap, crap, crap and “REFORMs” must be put in place to “save it”. Don`t think yourself in the majority and that the the ballot box is a sure thing, because to paraphrase a famous songwriter, “it ain`t necessarily so”!

You are all going to submit to the ISLAMIC movement that is overtaking our country and the current CLOWNS that reside in Parliament will pay the penalty. What will happen to their children/grandchildren? The only decent people who are prepared to fight for this country are EDL, BNP and UKIP; I wonder why these three parties don’t join forces and put the backbone into Britain once more. Come on Britain let’s get our act together and rid this country of the idiots who trying run it; namely Conservatives, Liberals and Labourites.

  • chas

    feel a bit useless really. we can all see the future by simply looking at the North American political scene where political lobbyists such as the gun lobby and the anti health care lobby hold sway in spite of obvious and massive harm they do to their society and yet our mp’s are blindly leading us down the path that can only give even more power to the rich. Organisations will have to change their campaigning methods to include tactics used by industrialists, placing lobbyists in the heart of government just as they do. Not convinced that this is ethical though in a democracy that wants to be healthy and working in the interests of all.

  • Thule

    My MP Stephen Hammond did what he typically does : Always vote with his party! He does not seem to have a mind of his own, so I am not surprised he voted yes in the end. But I am really surprised that Michael Meacher was `absent’ and David Davies voted yes. Are there two David Davies because another one on the list was absent. Was he the one who usually stands for freedom of speech? In this case obviously NOT. Well this government is really trying to usher in the Orwellian state at enormous speed. First the bill, which filters out any alternative or esoteric websites under the guise of stopping pornography, then the gagging bill and soon we will also have a state controlled press. This is the end of democracy, ready for the next wave of `complete surveillance’ with the help of the `smart grid’. The `smart’ phone was just the beginning, leading up to the `smart grid’ via `smart meters’ in order to eventually combine everything with the 5G `machine to machine’ smart planet system and nobody knows about it as it gets no media coverage. Wonder why you energy bills go up?? Did you know that the smart meter roll-out will cost the companies 11billion ( a very conservative first estimate expected to be rising) which will be levied on our energy bills. This will do absolutely nothing to safe energy, in fact our bills will double, maybe even treble as they have done all over the US! But it will do one thing which is every government’s dream : `COMPLETE CONTROL’ . Not only can your energy be switched off remotely but `they’ also know exactly what everyone of us is doing. David Patraeus, former director of `Wired’ said in March 2012: “We’ll spy on you through your dishwasher”. Don’t believe it ?? I didn’t until I watched the `Take back your Power’ video. This` should’ be 38Degrees next campaign and I beg your members to watch this harrowing vision of the future. The smart meter roll-out is imminent and the smart water meter will be `mandatory’. To top it all, these meters, acting like mobile phone masts ( and each household will have THREE) emit very strong radiation causing alarming health effects experienced by those in the US who were forced to have them installed. But I urge everyone to judge for themselves by watching this documentary. More info on http://www.stopsmartmeters.org.uk or takebackyourpower.net

  • soap opera

    Many of the people who enter politics are inadequates who would be unable to sustain the disciplines of a proper job.Very few if any have had any training in the job they do or any convictions relative to the job they do.Political leaders have no mandate for the office they are in ( just view all voting turnout figures ).They have one of the lowest level of respect of any occupation with the highest salaries which speaks volumes for their personal integrity.The reason is because they are exempt from accountability from the electorate who themselves have little understanding of politics thanks to the removal of The British Constitution from the school curriculum.Where all generations would discover that it is the Civil Service who maintain the power of decision making in this country & always have—the rest is just window dressing & part of the Quasi Democracy theatricals in what is primarily a sophisticated dictatorship albeit well dressed up.I have long since reached the conclusion that we would all be better off if the nazis had won the war at least we would know who is running the country & what values they hold.Laissez Faire society-not for me I’m afraid!The whole political system is archaic & not fit for purpose in today’s dynamic society.The comforts which politicians enjoy have been acheived walking upon the broken souls of millions who made so many sacrifices in their conviction & beliefs that they would make this society a better place than the one they left.I’ll let you decide for yourself if their sacrifices were in vain.But first look around you before you make up your mind!

  • Reality Jim dispossessed serf

    I’ve not signed this petition for a number of reasons, it has good points but I will not support something that tramples all over democracy just like the gagging law is supposed to do, the campaign is hypocrisy and its proponents hypocrites.
    I’l make a point before I go any further, I am not a member of or a supporter of the BNP, I do not have any time for groups like the EDL etc.
    In a recent email from 38degrees it boasted of the large campaign against the BNP by the hard left communist violent thugs jokingly called hope not hate and unite against fascism (who should protest against themselves), and they’ve already started on UKIP, it said that the gagging law may stop these groups from attacking legally registered political parties with possibly millions of supporters and definitely many hundreds of thousands with genuine concerns for their children’s futures.
    So on the one hand, your campaign states that you oppose the gagging law that may stop people representing their views and protesting, leafleting, along with all manner of other actions in election years, then on the other hand you support the total denial of a political party to go about its totally legal business, you support the gagging of a totally legal political party. I can see exactly what sort of democracy the proponents of this campaign have in mind, its very reminiscent of the eu style democracy and many others of today’s world, Josef Stalin would be proud of the two faced nature and deceit within this campaign.
    Democracy means democracy, by the people for the people, that means ALL OF THEM, not just those you agree with, regardless of their views. I despise the labour party and its union muppet’s but I don’t agree with anyone shutting their campaigns down or denying them any coverage. I’ve supported some of your worthy campaigns because they were worth supporting and genuine, but it seems that 38degrees may be just another of those groups whereby anyone is welcome unless you disagree with their views. So at the moment I’m all for any law that shuts down mobs of violent thugs that think it ok to attack others on the street because of their ideals or campaign against them even though they aren’t standing in elections.

  • ChessyPig

    This data set doesn’t distinguish between ‘wasn’t there’ and ‘didn’t vote’ – Julian has repeatedly said that he’s abstaining on this bill because he thinks the things it intended to sort out (rich lobbyists having undue influence + buying votes) are important to sort out, but doesn’t agree with the implementation that silences non-partisan lobbying groups like 38 Degrees.

  • ChessyPig

    ‘tellaye’ means that she was helping count the ‘aye’ votes, as well as voting ‘aye’ herself.

  • ChessyPig

    ‘aye’ on the third vote is for the law as it is – i.e. against the 38 Degrees campaign.

    Im very disappointed that norman baker voted for this. He would never have done before being part of this coalition. mps are more concerned about their positions than democracy, lets hope the lords scupper this or it will be down to labour to repeal or amend it in their next term

  • Danny

    I think you’re wrong about his votes. If you look in the list above, he voted for both amendments, and then against the 3rd Reading.

  • Paul Brook

    You made this statement above: – “There is so much going wrong with our democracy”.

    I can explain exactly why.

    We are no longer a democracy, us ordinary people are enslaved, we are ruled by an unelected group of (mainly) failed politicians’, appointed by, and beholden to, the governments of the members of the EU, who appointed them,

    This incestuous relationship has destroyed democracy within all the members of the EU, just as the Kaiser did in Germany in 1912, when his appointees in the Reichstag, controlled the Reichstag, so that he remained the Emperor and fooled the German people into thinking that they were part of a democracy and were self governing!

    This is exactly what our government is doing now, and every other government in the EU is doing as well.

    You can see how much all our politicians in government are enjoying themselves, they feel they are invulnerable, and to some extent they are, as they can never be called to task, unless their subjects (us) wake up to what is going on, and what they have done and are still doing.

    Going back to the Kaiser, he believed he was divine, just as Hitler did a little later, and wanted war in Europe to expand the German Empire, just as Hitler did a little later!

    They both had their shot at it and failed completely, causing multi millions of deaths in the process.

    So here we are again, in almost identical situations to 1914 and 1939, the EU has won the Nobel peace prize! And we’re all going to live happily ever after?

    If someone advertises a service & I agree to allowing them to provide that service, should they fail to perform as advertised I can sue them, not just for damages, but also for specific performance, or maybe an impose an injunction.
    So why can’t we do the same as regards these politicians & their manifestos/promises?
    If it is just ‘fluff’, then that ought to be made clear to an unsuspecting public!

  • paul c

    problem is they don’t what to know the little people we are being taken as mugs

  • Amatsuscribbler

    I’m disgusted my MP did not even bother to go to ANY of the sessions! Mind you, he hasn’t bothered to reply to my email either!

  • Morag Mackenzie

    My MP Eric Joyce was absent at all the sessions

  • Malcolm Duncan

    Too many mp’S missing how can they expect us to vote for them when they ignor our wishes, time they did as we want not what they want, vote them out next time..

  • June Poole

    My MP, Jim Dobbin, voted against the gagging laws. Thank you Jum, you are a good un

    My MP was on maternity leave at first yet managed to vote against the bill . Thank you Lucy

  • Evie

    I would like to thank our MP Mrs. Rosie Cooper for voting, and for supporting us as our MP, who never fails to reply to letters or emails, Thank you very much for all your help.

  • ahem

    38 degrees just sent an email circular saying we should thank our mp’s for voting against the bill, naming zac goldsmith as one of the brave mp’s who had put his “neck on the line”. Goldsmith did not vote against the bill, he abstained. Will 38 degrees now send an email to all who received the first, correcting their error?

  • LibDem…NeverAgain

    Well done to George Howarth MP. Thank you for doing the right thing and voting against.

    So the Liberal Democrats want to protect civil liberties eh? From what I can see they’ve just followed their conservative masters into the lobby like poodles. Nice way to show that you’re a party of principle. NOT.

    Cant wait for the next election where we will all have a chance to watch Nick Clegg squirm as he asks for forgiveness from his student filled constituency.

  • Maria

    MP Ian Davidson, done us proud! Always does. One of the few with genuine integrity.

  • Dave Martin

    Options
    1. Civil disobedience
    2.38 Degrees becomes a political party & fields candidates in order to take advantage of the generous funding allowances.
    3.38 Degrees becomes a business in the form of a newspaper

    Just a few ideas to kick around!

  • Ray

    NOt a single tory or LIberal had the independence of mind to vote against. They wonder why we are disillusioned with politics!

  • http://CleanThames.org/ CleanThamesNowAlways

    Meanwhile real lobbying that’s causing real damage to the country is proceeding unabated. See this nice shot of Mr Cameron underneath a CH2M Hill/Starbucks banner here: http://www.inhousecomms.com/index.php/new_site/news_article/the_london_lounge_2012/ This year “the London Lounge”, with the same sponsors, provided an opportunity for an “elite network of policy shapers” to have a quiet conversation in both Manchester and Brighton.

    CH2M Hill is the American engineering firm behind the Thames Water supersewer. Both TW and Starbucks don’t deem necessary to pay UK corporation tax on activity that most definitely takes place on UK soil. TW is also a private monopoly (you can’t vote with feet) getting ready to hike bills of a quarter of UK taxpayers by 25% for the supersewer, having also secured a UK taxpayer backed blank cheque last year.

    See our petition: http://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/stop-the-thames-water-rip-off

  • SouthWest Londoner

    “The London Lounge” was provided by lobbyists “Inhouse Communications” who are members of Boris Johnson’s 2008 election team. Perhaps this relationship helps to explain why Boris Johnson is not looking after his electorate but is now pro the Thames Tunnel despite overwhelming evidence that a sustainable, less costly solution is available. The refusal of the government to review its waste water policy seems to be linked back to Mr Cameron.

    The only good news is that the regulator, Ofwat, does not intend to allow the attempted swindle by Thames Water to rip customers off next April.

    Why is 38 degrees sending out misleading emails?
    38 degrees sent an email circular on 14th Oct saying we should thank our mp’s for voting against the bill, naming zac goldsmith as one of the brave mp’s who had put his “neck on the line”.

  • tikib

    The most effective way of dealing with the gagging law if it passes is for all the groups and charities to agree to break the law by making political statements on the first of May and to continue to do so until the election. Precedent is 2/3rds of the law in this country and the electoral commission don’t even want to enforce it ffs.

  • Maggie

    I agree with last message break the law (hopefully wont come to this if Lords pay attention to this law) – My MP Ming Campbell, voted NO and I see Gordon Brown was absent again! I have voted labour in the past and Liberal recently – NEVER AGAIN – Independent Scotland is our only hope………

  • Maggie

    I meant Ming Campbell voted AYE made a mistake on my last post

  • Kenneth Johns

    Whatever the outcome of this recent scenario, mankind is on the brink of self destruction ! so called democracy is on the same track !…we are in the grip of the greedy ones…BANKS..BIG BUSINESS…ENERGY GIANTS !!!…LOCAL so called COUNCILS ! etc;…………and the reason for this demise ?….increased use of natural resourses. OIL.. GAS…IRON…COPPER…COAL…WOOD..and the like…together with rapidly increasing population…those who hold the reigns are on a ride to self destruction !….Those that hold the reigns are dependent on an increased population, to whom they need to sell their wares !!!….the larger the population, the more rapidly their wares run out !!!….so they increase their prices, and people cut back, which makes the same profit, with increased prices, but there is fast approaching, the time when those resourses run dry….but before that, the remaining small pool of goods will be reserved for the wealthy, prompting an uprising of the more “lowly” members of humanity, who will make life increasingly difficult for the elite to live life in safety !….materials will be reserved for such things as NUKES and other means of anihilation, and then, Nations will again rise against nations, fighting for the remaining commodities,until the switch is pushed, leaving very few survivors….

  • Sue

    I would like to congratulate 38degrees for the excellent meeting in Norwich North Constituency. MP, Chloe Smith attended and put forward her views on the ‘gagging law’ and the need for it but, the overwhelming majority clearly were against it in every sense. Chloe has been to great lengths to say how much she wants to concentrate her time on representing her constituency so, if she is true to her word, she will listen to her constituents who were out in full force, this evening! Thank you, 38degrees for organising such a successful event!

  • daisy makepeace

    The EDL is just the BNP without balls who’s England are thy defending anyway. certainly not mine. England is just an idea thats no longer relevant.

  • daisy makepeace

    This gagging bill had better not come into force. I’m one of those many.I so called parasites soon to be in the workhouse. If charities and other fine organizations are told to belt up then the needs of millions will never be known.

    I’d vote 1. because the other two don’t help the many other charities who need to campaign during election years.

  • Mark

    I’m ashamed to see that my MP voted in completely the opposite way to that desired. Jeremy Wright (MP Kenilworth and Southam) – I shall be writing to him imminently!

  • giddysu

    I note that my MP Anne Milton(Guildford) voted completely against the Bill, I too am a so called parasite.

    So did his replacement in Rugby, Mark Pawsey. I’m sorry you got their dud MP!

  • bryan campbell

    Am I missing something….? some one please explain, Ed Miliband Missing on all three votes Was he too busy

  • AJH

    Afraid my MP is Stewart Jackson, and the one time time he voted against the party line I had to suspect he’d toed it so hard he fell over it and banged his head!

  • 38 supporter

    It seems my MP David Evennett has voted in favour of the gagging bill – this does not surprise me. as he is a consistent supporter of the government on almost any issue that would concern us 38′ers and on which we would seek change.. I think we cannot rely on him to further the democratic concerns of the electorate.

  • zabeli

  • Linda

    Golly, that is very profound Kenneth, but I’m not disagreeing x

  • Breakingwind

    We are NOT a democracy !!!

    We are a Parliamentary representative democracy-

    A political system in which a body of citizens can elect people to represent them, BUT once elected those representatives are free to go against the wishes of the electorate & can only be stopped by losing the next election

    I commend the following -

    [ (From - tikib 3 months ago)

    “The most effective way of dealing with the gagging law if it passes
    is for all the groups and charities to agree to break the law by making
    political statements on the first of May and to continue to do so until
    the election. Precedent is 2/3rds of the law in this country and the
    electoral commission don't even want to enforce it.” ]

    Our parents & grandparents fought & died to maintain
    the limited freedoms we have, we should not let this (or any other) bunch of
    crooks stop the truth being told.

    It’s EVERY citizens duty to expose ALL wrong doings, particularly of those who assume power over us.

  • Nicholas Roberts

    Just as ‘ahem’ below has asserted. Trust in this government has diminished on the basis of their ideological intentions (class protectionism) and their theocratic narratives. (Darwin’s Theory) Karl Marx was exploited and so too was Charles Darwin as he stressed on his deathbed that it was just a theory. When laws are passed that assume supremacy and favour to those that indulge in exploitation of our nescience (psychological innocence, not to be confused with ignorance) and the manipulation of fear. When the most sophisticated form of bullying is legitimised then the law is in contempt of humanity and civil disobedience and law breaking is a, no brainer. Unless of course your happy for wonderfully articulated fascists to replace this dwindling notion of democracy. The behaviour in Westminster is shameful, the rhetorical arrogance is patronising. Their ill upbringing is being imposed on educated hearts of this country and I am prepared to die in opposition to it!

  • Nicholas Roberts

    Think about this for a moment in the context of social cleansing/engineering (and it is going on right now) We are innocently told the story of the tooth fairy where by we are incentivised early on to place our baby teeth under the pillow in return for ‘FIAT CURRENCY’ (call it a 50 pence piece of worthless nickel). Then at a time that is NOT the birth of Jesus son of Joseph we are rewarded with gifts by a St Nicholas imposter that is conditional to our behaviour. (St Nicholas gave presents unconditionally!) And so the seeds of Money and Materialism are sown to ensure the interests of power seekers are met. Consumer capitalism is swallowing up this great nation and the word ‘progress’ has been rebranded to mean ‘economic growth’. Our currency was debased from true value (gold reserves) in 1971 with ‘The Smithsonian Agreement’ and this was the beginning of the end for our understanding between cost and price. The public interest is NOT ‘the national interest’. We MUST disobey with courage in our hearts, STOP being frightened of reprisals and ACT!

  • Bellman

    Zac Goldsmith may have supported the amendments but he was ABSENT at the 3rd reading. He hadn’t the courage to vote against the Government. Many other Conservatives were also absent – cowards way out – but is their electorate aware? If this law is passed without major amendments, then I will encourage those charities I am a member of, to break the law. My MP, Jeremy Lefroy, was also absent on ALL THREE OCCASIONS. If he persists in not representing his constituents, then he doesn’t believe in democracy.

  • Linda

    All excellent ideas! x

    Thank you to my MP Ed Balls for voting against, but on a recent meeting he arranged for his local constituents this matter came into conversation and he was obviously very angry that this had arisen at all. Thanks again Mr Balls

    Simon Wright MP DISAPPOINTED with you, you would think after the emails of every single person signing my petition and the many emailing him with 38 degrees petition he would have understood the implications of this, Id like his explanation as to why he feels the outdated parts should remain and will ask him for this on Monday. Who do they benefit exactly? not the children in care and not the families ripped apart! might as well scrap cafcass straight away then because you’ve just basically voted for children not having a voice. You should take notice of your LibDem John Hemming on this one, maybe stop opening school gardens and spend some time researching this…?
