Censorship now government policy?

Courtesy of The Sovereign Independent we learn that if you wished to view Roger Hayes action at Birkenhead Crown Court you now cannot as this video is no longer available due to "a government removal request".

From the Coalition 'Manifesto": Our programme for government:
"We will implement a full programme of measures to reverse the substantial erosion of civil liberties and roll back state intrusion"
From the novel 1984 - Part Two, Chapter 5:
"Syme had vanished. A morning came, and he was missing from work: a few thoughtless people commented on his absence. On the next day nobody mentioned him. On the third day Winston went into the vestibule of the Records Department to look at the notice-board. One of the notices carried a printed list of the members of the Chess Committee, of whom Syme had been one. It looked almost exactly as it had looked before -- nothing had been crossed out -- but it was one name shorter. It was enough. Syme had ceased to exist: he had never existed."
Like Syme, the Birkenhead court protest has ceased to exist, it has never existed - or so our government would have you believe.

Very good analogy WfW.

Whilst I have been away both the Police and Govt departments have been looking at an essay I carry authored by Roger Hayes called Living by the Rule of Law.

It seems TPTB really don't want Common Law coming to the fore, and at every opportunity either ignore or suppress it, as it will undermine everything that the EU legal system is built on, giving the politicians their current taste for power, as I have written about before.

I can view it from Spain and have downloaded a copy. I will put it up on Eyetube when I have a moment.

Please let me know if there are any others that you want "rescuing".
