A uniquely British sense of justice


Tommy Robinson has involuntarily spent 40 days of his life in solitary confinement in one or another of these wretched English prisons on the strength of a one-sided prefab arrest and conviction. I guess that means it's much, much easier to prepare a case to convict and imprison a man than to argue a case that it was justified in the first place.

Tommy Robinson clearly belongs to the class of nobodies labeled "working class." He is in the same class as the little girls who have been trafficked as sex slaves and their distraught parents and siblings - in other words, the class those who govern the country regard as worthless. Their lives simply don't matter. When a nation's rulers can simply shrug off the destruction of young girls' lives just because they are "lower-class," that nation no longer can claim to have enough character to continue to exist.
