The persecuted satirical singer-songwriter, Alison Chabloz, faces trial under the notorious bad law of the Communications Act 2003, s.127 on 30-31 March 2021 (next Tuesday and Wednesday).
She has now blogged about her present situation: https://alisonchabloz.com/2021/03/22/alison-chabloz-legal-update-march-2021/.
Alison’s blog is otherwise found here: https://alisonchabloz.com/.

Alison Chabloz welcomes attendance by supporters (Westminster Mags, Marylebone Road, London; nearest Underground–Edgware Road; trial starts at 10.30, but anyone can enter at any time).
I scored the same as John Rentoul this time: 6/10. I did not know the answers to questions 2, 5, 9, and 10.
That is the extraordinary thing about the misnamed Scottish National Party. It has scarcely any of the characteristics of any form of nationalism.
The other extraordinary thing about the SNP is that it took it about 37 years from its foundations in the early 1930s to get even one MP into the House of Commons: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scottish_National_Party#House_of_Commons_2.
The number of Scottish MPs at Westminster varied, in those years, from 72 to (the present position) 59.
The SNP had no more than half a dozen MPs until 2015 (except for the mid/late 1970s, when it had 11). In 2015, the SNP won 56 out of 59 Commons seats (that fell to 35 in 2017, but rose again to 48 in 2019).
What happened in the years 2010-2015? The near-collapse of support, in Scotland, for the existing System parties: Conservative, Liberal Democrat and, above all, Labour, which lost 40 out of its 41 Scottish seats: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2015_United_Kingdom_general_election#Outcome.
The SNP is of course a System party itself: pro-Jewish lobby, pro-Israel, pro-immigration, pro-finance capitalism. Domestically, in policy terms, it is mostly somewhere around where Labour was in the mid 1970s.
For me, the interesting speculation is as to whether, should support for the “three main” System parties collapse in England, a new social national party might not do what the SNP did in Scotland. Despite the absence of any credible nationalist (let alone social-national) party in England, it might be possible, in an extreme situation. The considerable though brief success or near-success of the weak conservative nationalist parties, UKIP and Brexit Party, has shown what might still be possible.
Much of what has happened and is still happening in the UK (and the EU states, and Australia/New Zealand) in the past year or so has been a mass psychological experiment, on a huge scale. Social conditioning. Part of the “Great Reset”…
…and I wonder what (((lobby))) is behind it all, though well-concealed?…

Hello Ian. Something interesting
Yes, Claudius, it is.
The way Alison Chabloz has been dragged in and out of Courts demonstrates that a certain group reportedly consisting of only 200,000 have an unprecedented stronghold within many British Instituitions, particularly the British justice system.
Nice to see a Labour MP stick-up for the police just for once! Fair play to her!👌
So-called ‘Tory’ MPs often don’t nowadays especially those from the libertarian crackpot/extremist element who whinge constantly about the too mild, insufficiently enforced and therefore ineffectual Covid-19 restrictions (Brexshit supporters are highly represented here) that the ever so pathetic and weak David Cameron failed to stand up to like that certifiable loon Steven Baker. Cameron should have told these people to sling their hook and set-up their own libertarian extremist party or join UKIP to see how far they get when standing under their REAL political philosophy.
Will Cooling, the police are overstretched even without dealing with Covid-19 due to successive bad governments including Cameron’s failing to control immigration numbers properly hence our increasingly extreme population figures leading to a reduction in the ratio of police officers to the population.
I believe I am correct in stating that the police had their highest ever numbers under the last LABOUR government and then the so-called ‘party of law and order’ brutally cut their numbers and sacked officers and closed police stations.🙄🤬😡☹️😞
If we really want to tackle crime we MUST radically increase the ratio of officers to the population. The roots of crime lie deep in society but one of the best ways of dealing with it is to increase the certainty of detection and apprehension of criminal suspects and to try and prevent crime before it happens.
M’Lord of Essex:
Should police numbers simply be increased now, all that would happen would be that tens of thousands of brainwashed police drones would have the time to harass dissidents and thinkers such as me. Screw that!
The police need fundamental reform. To be honest, the only way to restore public confidence in them now is to remove the British State’s direct control of them in its entirety since the Tories and Labour simply can’t be trusted to run them in a strictly politically neutral way.🤬😡☹️😞
I suggest we follow Japan in setting-up a National Public Safety Commission to run them free from direct British government involvement.
This body would be staffed by independent policing experts. I suppose we have few, if any, of those left alive now in the United Kingdom so we will have to import them on a temporary basis from countries which still do have decent, non-PC police services like Singapore, Japan, South Korea, Spain, Portugal, Monaco or Germany etc.
Police officers have to be reasonably well-paid so as to attract the best recruits and to prevent a corruption problem, well motivated and well-led by their superior and commanding officers.
Their numbers have to be sufficient and represent a good ratio to the population they serve. Increasing the severity of sentences can only go so far in providing good deterrents to criminal behaviour. The best deterrent to crime is to significantly increase the rate of detection and apprehension of those committing it.
We should aim to get our officer numbers up to the ratio they are in Germany at the very least if not countries like Spain and Portugal.
Britain needs to be ‘swamped’ by police!😂😎👌
NO, Peter, Sweden DID NOT get it right! Sweden has failed when they are compared to the neighbouring and culturally similar countries of Denmark, Norway and Finland.
The countries which have performed best in this crisis tend to be located in East and South East Asia like Taiwan, South Korea and Vietnam:
Yes, Nick Griffin ( I am agreeing with you here for the first time in months) there is, “Nothing Scottish” about the SNP considering their adherence to fanatical pro open borders globalist values.
This in in stark contrast to when they were first set-up in the 1930’s when they could be characterised as a genuine nationalist party. Indeed, so much so they were put under the observation of the security services until the mid 1940’s.
I think a lot of people vote for them rather as with the Liberal Democrats in the past because they are not the Tory or Labour Parties who they rightfully despise. It is, in short, an anti-Tory and anti-Labour vote rather than a pro-SNP one.
I also think a few very ‘Right-wing’ people vote for them despite their pro open borders globalism because they want ‘ independence’ from the United Kingdom so that Scotland can have its own immigration policy.
Some SNP voting Scots look at the utter tip London is thanks to the treason of Tory and Labour and think there is no way we want that to happen to Edinburgh.
By adopting open borders globalist extremism the so-called CONServative and Unionist Party is driving some very ‘Right-wing’ Scots to vote SNP.🙄🙄🤬😡😡😡
The very “open borders” policies that, er, the *SNP* is (also) proclaiming…they are as “System” as the LibLabCon men (and women).
I know that. However, I believe that a fairly large number of very ‘Right-wing Scots are voting SNP because despite that party’s globalism they want independence to set Scotland’s own immigration policies.
Their idea is to get ‘independence’ first and then replace the SNP as the governing party with a genuine Scottish nationalist party administration in Edinburgh which will tightly restrict immigration so that Edinburgh doesn’t become a crime ridden, Third World dump like London has become.
Who could blame them for using the SNP and the ‘independence’ issue in this way?
I would be tempted to do this myself.
This is why it is so irresponsible of the present libertarian extremist NOT genuinely Tory government in London to dump any real notion of conservatism and enact their open borders globalist extremist policies ie mass HK immigration ext.
Patel and the excretable libertarian extremist globalist that is Dominic RAAB (a nice traditionally British surname that is!🙄🙄🙄🙄) are systematically undermining the Union in this way.
Despite the fact there is a large number of Scots who vote SNP as an anti-Tory and ant-Labour vote there are,obviously, a large percentage who DO agree with separation from the UK and therefore vote for them.
They are now extremely difficult to get rid of because in many ways the SNP is not a ‘normal’ political party but rather a cult. Despite their lamentable performance overseeing education etc under devolution many forgive them and vote for them regardless. Adolf Hitler identified himself and the Nazi Party implicitly with Germany as if to say Nazi automatically equals Germany and Germans and the cult that is the SNP and their supporters do likewise with Scotland and the Scots.
If you don’t approve of the SNP you are not a genuine Scot and are automatically anti-Scotish!
The party IS Scotland and the Scots!🙄🙄🙄
M’Lord of Essex:
I am probably not sufficiently au fait with Scottish politics to say whether that is the case; perhaps so.
Certainly, the old Anglo-Scottish parties (LibLabCon) are going nowhere in Scotland (though having said that, one notes that the SNP has only 61 seats in the *Scottish* Parliament out of a total of 129: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scottish_Parliament (Con 30, Lab 23).
It will be interesting to see the results of the upcoming election.
Yes, the SNP doesn’t have, as yet, a huge grip on Scottish Parliament seats which is due to the fact Holyrood uses a reasonably proportional electoral system (though this could be improved by linking the regional lists up) which ensures there is a fair degree of matching going on between the number of votes a party has and its number of seats in the parliament.
This is, of course, in stark contrast to the profoundly unrepresentative rubbish of First Past The Post in Westminster. Having such a stark difference between Westminster and Holyrood in terms of the equality of votes and matching seats to votes is yet another reason why so many Scots want ‘independence’.
IF the so-called CONServative and Unionist Party REALLY cared about the United Kingdom’s long term survival they would not just adopt a more restrictive attitude to immigration but also would not be such stubborn, arrogant and fanatical opponents of a more fair electoral system for the House of Commons.🙄🤬😡
M’Lord of Essex, obviously I have little time for the SNP, but if there were faux-“Independence” for Scotland, it might help my cause in various ways.
Quite simply, many Scots like Holyrood much more than they do Westminster because due to Proportional Representation voting and some other factors too it IS more modern and representative than Westminster is. Not reforming Westminster whilst giving Scotland its own far more modern and democratic parliament was always going to be a big danger with regard to Labour’s devolution proposals in the late 1990’s.
