    Put in Chains

    "Rule Britannia, Britannia rules the waves....." - a song from my past as an Englishman.

    But today the emphasis is on Ruing little britan rather than Britannia ruling anything.

    Bad laws are everywhere.

    Send in the clowns: Britain’s bizarre new laws



    The hyper-regulation of everyday life – from clown shows to live-music events to sipping wine in a park – speaks to a profound reorganisation of the relationship between state and society.


    by Josie Appleton


    The erosion of civic freedoms in Britain over the past 10 years is perhaps best viewed through the eyes of a clown.

    First, all the key aspects of the clown’s act have been deemed a health-and-safety risk: banned activities include blowing bubbles (in case someone slips), wearing giant shoes (in case the clown slips), and twisting balloons into animal shapes (in case children have latex allergies). Second, under the Licensing Act 2003, clowns have to get an ‘entertainment licence’ for each local authority in which they perform, which means a lengthy form delivered to several public bodies with a fee. Finally, of course, clowns work with children, which makes them prime suspects in terms of paedophilia and general dodginess, and to allay these suspicions they must wear their Criminal Records Bureau check on their sleeves (or keep it stashed in a pocket).

    Ten years of regulation is summed up on the website of ‘Bimbo the magical clown’, who performs tricks with stuffed toys. Next to booking information, Bimbo disclaims in bold red text, bordered by stars: ‘Full Public Liability Insurance’; ‘Health & Safety Risk & Control [of substances hazardous to health]’; ‘Assessments available for viewing’; ‘CRB checked’.

    The regulation of clowns indicates an important feature of today’s state regulation: that it targets the most innocuous and innocent parts of life. In the past, state regulation would tend to be targeted at political agitators, criminals or other groups that were (rightly or wrongly) held to be ‘threatening public order and the way of life of decent respectable people’, etc etc. Now it seems to be the most normal and everyday things that are subjected to the greatest degree of regulation.

    Over the past 10 years, activities such as dealing drugs or robbery have not become significantly more difficult. But it has become extremely difficult to hold a boys’ football match (requiring CRB checks and child protection courses for the coaches); to hold a concert in a village hall (requires a ‘premises licence’ for ‘regulated entertainment’); to invite an African artist to give a talk at your art gallery (requires that you register with the Home Office as a ‘licensed sponsor’ and issue a ‘certificate of sponsorship’ to your visitor); or to hold a charity cake stall (requires a Public Liabilities Insurance Certificate and in some cases a Portable Appliance Test Certificate).

    Philip Johnston’s book, Bad Laws, charts this new breed of regulation which ‘circumscribes or prohibits what was once a perfectly acceptable form of behaviour’. Johnston recounts how the Licensing Act 2003 has meant the cancellation of such threats to public order as: a poetry reading in an Oxfam bookshop, elderly gentlemen singing folk songs in a country pub, a well-dressing festival in a Derbyshire village, and dinner events in an east Sussex village hall. There is a peculiar obtrusiveness and vindictiveness about contemporary laws; they get in the way of everyday activities to no obvious end.

    No, it's the state swallowing society as it's own (a legacy of 13 years of labours socialist sickness)! The Con-Lib alliance despite it's elongated honeymoon period, has done little to throw off the imposing socialist ideas of society. Instead, it whacked the sleepy general populace with a new name for the left-leaning alliance. Call it the 'big society' and people won't see the elephant in the room because it's so obvious. Duh!

    A self-serving state always defines what 'society' IS before it's slaves even progress beyond the gestation phase. What constitutes "society" is written by those who rule it. Were your parents made aware they were signing a contract - when registering your birth - which made YOU a member of a society to which you were not made aware of it's rules? Nor more importantly, that which your parents signed upon was actually a contract, and with all contracts unless you make it's terms and conditions clearly known - it makes it null and void.

    For instance, every parent who registers their childs birth unknowingly signs a contract to the state (to which you then become a lifetime STATE employee) via the creation of a legal fiction (the birth certificate). It's this 'societal' strawman to which the mass population grasp at which makes them liable for taxes (there is no actual law stating citizens have to pay taxes) and acts/statutes which constitute 90% of faux cash-confiscatory law.

    For example: ALL statutes and acts are only legislated rules of SOCIETY given the force of law by the consent of the governed. Did you get that? If you genuinely did - you've unburdened yourself from a massive state perpetrated scam to keep you financially and politically compliant.

    'Societies' are always defined by a minority who seek to control a majority. Society is an elitist euphemism for control. Ever wonder why there is a 'Law Society' conflicting within our judicial system? It's far too incestuous a mechanism to be considered fair within a orgiastic relationship between it's members. The disturbing synchronisation between your defense counsel and the judiciary is nothing but a pantomine which is played out to hoodwink you into believing you have a chance of justice. It's all about politics, gamesmanship and money.

    Who's society? And defined by whom?

    There must only ever be one universal 'society' which is benefitted by all, and defined by the people themselves.

    Instead of pulling the plug on a whole retrievable system, we must work how best to funnel the societal contagion into a quarantined zone where we can exterminate every remnant of the pestilence, without effecting the whole. Not all is lost for those who persevere and have a brave heart.

    the language and practice of this new age society in the West is political correct which is the mode of communication of Marxists and the communists - they have always targeted the helpless and talented and that is why the target the victims for punisment and promote the oppressors ( the commissars) as was the evidence of the soviet Gulags, mental hospitals and gaols in fact the whole of the defunct USSR - but the crapulent horror now rising like a phoenix in the West

    Good point CD but for some reason I get the feeling that the western nation have been infected with something like social ebloa with a 99.99%-100% fatalty rating, who knows you might be right but yet it seems that the bulk of western people are brain dead from the neck up to realize what you have said let alone take action.
