“Know-all” tweeter “@thinkingofanew1” has, like so many would-be or armchair Twitter “legal experts”, made himself (or herself, but probably the former) look stupid here. Alison Chabloz was not recently convicted of incitement (to anything) but of three charges under Communications Act 2003, s.127, a notorious “bad law” that has attracted academic and other legal criticism for over a decade.
Alison Chabloz is facing a possible trial involving “incitement” (at present it is uncertain whether it will happen, because as yet the Attorney-General’s permission has not been given) under the Public Order Act 1986, but that is a separate matter.
The recent conviction under the 2003 Act was grounded on the basis that Alison Chabloz made “grossly offensive” remarks, in the view of the trial judge (a magistrate). Incitement does not form part of the 2003 Act, and there is no need to establish any incitement, nor indeed any “mental element”. All that need be done is to establish that the act was done (in this case, that the remarks were made and broadcast etc), and that, in the view of the court, those remarks were “grossly offensive”.
In fact, tweeter “@thingofanew1” seems to misunderstand the elements of “incitement” in English law anyway. He/she must either be a wannabe lawyer (perhaps a first year law student) or anyway someone (and there are many such) who thinks that he/she understands the law , but plainly does not.
Misspelled, but true.
It was with mild satisfaction that I recently noticed the vicious (and often inaccurate) “@GnasherJew” Twitter troll account being “suspended”, reinstated (after an outcry by the usual Jew-Zionist “claque”) and then “suspended” (expelled?) again. My account on Twitter was “suspended” (permanently) in 2018, after a crowd of Jews (including GnasherJew, who —like all demons— is or originally was not one but legion, a group) finally managed, after years of trying, to have my Twitter account closed.
Jews are usually given far more slack by Twitter than professed “antisemites”, but some have been expelled; I expect that more will follow. Some seem to have nothing much more to do with their time than post on Twitter. Like many, they overvalue Twitter, which is, in the end, largely a waste of time and effort.
…and if I am not mistaken, MP Tobias Ellwood [Con, Bournemouth East] is one of the officers of that unit, at least in a “Reserve” (TA, as was) capacity: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tobias_Ellwood.
The anti-lockdown, anti-facemask (etc) case is based mainly on reason. The pro-lockdown, pro-facemask muzzling case is based mainly on emotion (fear, mostly). Lord Sumption v. Piers Morgan, if you like. Emotion trumps thought. “EVERYONE’S GOING TO DIE FROM COVID!“, they cry. In fact, in the world generally, only 1 person in 4,000 has died from (or supposedly with) “the virus”, and even in the misgoverned UK the figure is only 1 in about every 1,000 inhabitants. No matter— emotion still trumps reason…
Very true. The pathetic kow-towing of the “British” (resident in UK) population to the ever-mutating diktats of the part-Jew clown Johnson, and his Cabinet of idiots, proves that.
The perfect Zionist witness— saw the expression on the face of the prosecutor despite not having been there! No wonder one of the Ten Commandments is “thou shalt not bear false witness“! 3,300 years on, the sin continues…
You would not easily guess from that reply that “Dr. Dim” had to apologize (via his NHS employers) to Alison Chabloz only very recently, and also had to delete a lying tweet about her and others…
Alison Chabloz— final blog post before she was imprisoned
I somehow missed this, posted by Alison Chabloz the day before her trial: https://alisonchabloz.com/2021/03/29/enjoying-the-sunshine-before-tomorrows-trial/.
God, what a cretin…
Hitchens did predict that terrible by-product of the “panicdemic” facemask nonsense; I recall reading his view about it.
In fact, Hitchens was not alone in disliking the 2012 “Olympischer Schauspiel“. Me too…
Quite. The French health service is, in most respects, better than the NHS. The Frenchwoman mentioned in that tweet by Hitchens wrote about how hospital wards ceased to exist in France in 1979 (they use these things called “hospital rooms”, for one or two people), and about how she was amazed when she realized, living in London about 30 years after that date, that almost all British hospital patients have to endure multibed wards.
The problem is that the NHS, a good idea in principle, varying in quality in practice, has become a sacred cow, something to be venerated and protected in itself. “Protect the NHS” (from Coronavirus), even if that means unnecessary suffering and unnecessary death in care homes, among patients needing consultation, testing, and treatment…and so on.
How much longer has our present civilization?
