    SS-GB In Real Time! UK Cancel-Culture! 


    ‘Almost everyone I spoke to for this article was nervous about expressing their views openly, while publishers were not prepared to talk on the record. What does that tell us….

    https://www.standard.co.uk/culture/books/cancel-culture-authors-books-jk-rowling-b900277.html

    Unusual in any British newspaper these days to find such a reflective paragraph.

    Plenty of facts and opinions to be looked at via the link, but those twenty or so words are chilling.

     

    FIGHT BACK!

      What has happened to Britain?
      No hope, no glory, and not likely will anyone sing about it being ‘Mother of the Free!’

      I blame the Tories, who got all those patriotic Labour voters by pretending to be a patriotic conservative party and then, as Tories do, kicked the patriotic conservative voters in the goolies.
      You have the right idea.
      FIGHT BACK!

    New European ‘Human-Right’ – To Masturbate At Nazis’ Victims! 


    And isn’t it grand to know that the robed scum on the European Court of Human Rights are not only adamant in their determination to save the skins of terrorists, mass murderers and scum who rape children…

    =

    Brussels V India! Euro-Commissars Eager To Save Child-Rapists? 

    ….but that their omniscience has also emboldened them to assume the role of drama critics too.

    They have awarded some creeps a tidy sum in damages against Malta because, a few years ago, the government in Valetta took action to ban a ‘play,’

    “Human Rights?”

    Since when is it somebody’s “human right” to affront every possible standard of public decency by putting on a play which is accurately described as glorifying sexual perversion.”

    Unlike the un-elected Strasbourg elitists, who were unanimous in their approval…

    =

    Nuts – is there ANY kind of decadent drivel that sovereign nations may proscribe, in the robed rogues’ view?

    …it’s fascinating to read that the stench on stage was so overpowering that even a significant number of Scots trendies were disgusted enough to walk out, when it was on at the Edinburgh Festival

    Ooooo

    ECHR’s ‘freedom of expression?’

    ====

    The Guardian is quite informative about the sicko’s “work of literature,” explaining how the Maltese censors justified the ban in 2008, viz. –

    … the play was blasphemous, showed contempt for the victims of the Holocaust, portrayed dangerous sexual perversions and referred to the sexual assault of children.

    More than enough reasons for a ban, in any healthy country, you’d think.

    Blasphemy is no big deal -God Almighty doesn’t need us to protect Him – but the other aspects mentioned?

    NOT NICE READING, BUT ESSENTIAL!

    Here’s an extract from another Guardian report to enlighten you on the ‘intellect’ of the “playwright,” a freaky Scot named Anthony Neilson…

    Neilson, one very loathsome sicko

    =

    …and EXACTLY why the Maltese in healthier times outlawed his ‘play,’ which describes a man masturbating over pictures of women being herded into a gas chamber in Auschwitz.

    A character fantasises about re-enacting the Moors murders, filming her partner sexually abusing the victims’ mothers and putting the footage on the web.

    She mutilates and stitches up her vagina to the strains of “We will stitch it” from the soundtrack to the children’s TV programme Bagpuss….

     protest walkouts by some of the audience at the Edinburgh festival in 2002.

    There’s more as well, but read it for yourselves via that link – I don’t want my blog further tainted by descriptions of the Scots sicko’s stuff.

    HOWEVER…

    Article 10 of that bad joke, the European Convention on Human Rights, guarantees ‘freedom of expression,’ even for sleazy creeps, evidently.

    The saddest part of the report has to be the braying of Malta’s current “ justice and culture minister,” Owen Bonnici, who, rather than take a stand for decency, completely sold out, –

    “I welcome ECHR decision ….”

    ..” once in government we radically reformed existing laws to increase artistic freedom, despite criticism from the opposition.” 

    Artistic freedom?

    …masturbating over pictures of women being herded into a gas chamber in Auschwitz. A character fantasises about re-enacting the Moors murders, filming her partner sexually abusing the victims’ mothers and putting the footage on the web…?

    ARTISTIC FREEDOM?

    =

    He’s a Socialist, of course!

    But even if he thinks degenerate filth is an ‘artistic freedom’ worth fighting for, he should have told the robed rats to get stuffed.

    =

    =

    What Maltese get to see on stage is their business, in accordance with their laws, and no bloody alien ‘court’ should be sticking its arrogant nose in.

    PS before you ask if I have seen the play, NO, I haven’t.

    I have absolutely no inclination to see it.

      OMG!
      This is sick beyond anythinhg I have ever heard of.
      That man Neilson defies description and the ‘theater company’ that promotes his ‘play’ is as bad, but those judges on that court should all be impeached or fired or whatever the European way happens to be, of getting rid of them.
      Whatever kind of college did they get their law degrees from? Mail-order degree-mills?
      Whoever gave them a law degree should rescind it.
      Europe is on the high road to hell if this verdict is allowed to stand.

      This is a desperately ill individual who needs to be monitored by mental health professionals but as to what ails these judges, God only knows.
      Who appointed such unfit lawyers to such powerful positions? In the United States it is a transparent political process, the President names his choices and the Senate has to vote on them. Do law-makers in each country have the opportunity to review and decide if these judges are fit and proper people to make such direly sweeping rulings?
      I have never heard of any such process in the UK or other countries so I am left to assume signatory governments keep parliamentarians away from their choice of nominees.
      Therefore it is to them that Europeans have to turn their attention. In view of what you have written about Mrs. May, anything she does to undermine the moral compass of society should not surprise us.
      Are there no MPs in the House of Commons trying to democratize the system?

      I distinctly experienced physical nausea on reading what this man included in his play, if we can call it a play.
      What did the distinguished jurists on the European Court of Human Rights feel while they were poring over its literary gems?
      Not nausea, certainly.
      Were they impressed with his talent for describing self-abuse? Were they inspired by his use of Auschwitz prisoners as props for his fantasies?
      We can only surmise but whatever our suppositions, they can only lead us towards one conclusion, that they should not be in any position to decide on any issues of right and wrong.
      You did well to give us the explicit details. Without them, we could never have imagined how vile Neilson and his fans in Strasbourg are.

      I can’t fathom why anyone would even think about composing a play like that and I can’t fathom why anyone would pay to see it and I can’t fathom why anyone who sat through part of it wouldn’t walk out, like those Scottish people did. Why only some of that audience? Why not all of them?
      There is no excuse for anyone who condones it by sitting through it without walking out or shouting down the actors or storming the stage.
      Most of all there is no excuse for those judges who brought freedom of speech as a principle into disrepute by confusing it with the ravings of a man with a mind like a blocked toilet.
