Public Order Bill

I have very deep concerns about the Public Order Bill, and its purpose is plain for all to see.

The Public Order Bill will curtail so many of our freedoms that it’s hard to know where to start if one were to list them:  freedom of expression, freedom of action, freedom of movement and freedom of speech, especially when people want to protest the exploitative nature of our unfair economic and social structures and are suffering from it so badly.

The bill is an attack on our democratic rights and clearly a strategic move by the Government to protect itself and our exploitative economic system, as it continues to make more draconian laws while it still has the chance.

I’ll continue to make a stand against the bill. At every opportunity I’ve voted against this bill, and in support of any wise amendments to it, I will continue to do so.
