Social media is full of videos of the police going mental in their policing for COVID-19.   Also, just talking to people, they have also personally experienced it or personally know someone who has. 

I'm not talking about aggressive policing, but blatant lies and misuses of laws.   In many videos, the police violate their own rules, while harassing the public. 

I was threatened with arrest for cleaning the rubbish from my front yard.   Nothing in the rules says I can't.  In fact, it is preferred that I do stay in my yard and not go out for a walk. 

It feels like Nazi Germany and/or Apartheid South Africa.


Whether you support the lockdown or not, you should support the police not abusing the law and doing their policing in an honest and fair way.

The situation in England seems like total shite. You guys gave us the Magna Carta! I think July 4th should be an international walk out day where everyone in the world who's had enough just says FUCK THIS and peacefully leaves their home and congregates around their nation's capitals and shut THEM down.

I saw a video yesterday of a Deliveroo guy being threatened with pepper spray and arrest because the cop didn't think food delivery was is essential work, despite being clearlyy stated in the lock down rules that it is.

Another video showed a cop doing a double knee drop into a guy's groin even after he was on the ground and complying. 

The western world has suspended human rights due to COVID-19.   I expect this to become the new norm. 

MSM and social media are acting as info gatekeepers.

In Scotland, it's boring as fuck.     

We don't even walk our dogs because the police here are insane and enforce what they claim is the law, not what the law actually says. 

Also, under the COVID-19 law, you have to prove you are innocent to the police, not them having to prove you are guilty.

It is so disappointing that 99% here thinks it is ok.
They don't understand that this is the new global regime who are rehearsing their fascist grip.
Everywhere the covid laws are papers delivered to the socalled national gobberment, and it happens without any sane debate or critic.
The media follows slavishly.
They want servile people, and to get them used to curfew and totalitarian rule.
Plus destroying even more of the national businesses, giving it over to the larger international corps.

I do find the situation in the UK a bit alarming. This predates COVID-19, too many violations of privacy and excessive policing.
