Remember, everyone: the word used was ‘GUIDANCE’.

Long tine ago, in those far-distant days where the only menace, as far as concerned the Luton, Hitchin, Liverpool, City of London Police Forces, along with other contingents was any sound, word or video from Tommy Robinson. When the only speech worth noting was  the wise words of Jonathan Philip Chadwick Sumption, Lord SumptionOBEPCFSAFRHistS in his broadcast  Reith Lectures Series.

Before CoVid-19, the would-be Wallies-in-Uniform (and would-be Gruppenfuhrers) were threatening action if you wrote anything, derogatory or otherwise;  about a bunch of perverts on Twitter, and in many cases actually carried those threats out.

Come the Virus!

But now, these same uniformed would-be Nazis, equipped with the MOST extraordinary powers ever granted Police Forces, even in Wartime, are targeting Dog-Walkers, Ramblers and anyone trying to get a bit of peace. They have, of course, clamped on to the strange wording, ‘Non-Essential Travel’, placed there to make their harassment legal, and are targeting the aforementioned walkers who are, in fact, not committing any crime whatsoever, but because they are “Leaving their homes’, they are placing everyone at risk; according to the New Nazi / Gestapo / Stasi Gauleiters who have all jumped with joy at being able to push everyone around with legal impunity. The only things missing were the Swastikas, still in their wrapping papers

MPs and commentators protested that these authoritarian activities were unjustified, and told this Home Secretary to issue strong guidance to all Chief Constables that they should tell the ‘Woodentops’ to cool it, and swiftly. To mind their own business, and cease the legal harassment of people who are simply driving out so they can walk in peace! Even the afore-mentioned Lord Sumption comes in for criticism of his well-judged remarks by Police chiefs who replied that their officers were just doing the right thing, in difficult circumstances. Another Senior cop stated that “A small, number of cases where I think things could have been done differently. Comments regarding a Police State’ are widely “off the mark”

“Off the Mark’ such as flying a drone above a pathway into the Peak District, just to buzz and humiliate people who have the audacity to actually drive to an isolated spot to walk their dogs without fear of lessening the ‘Social Distance’ between themselves and anyone else.

“Off the Mark’ such as stopping drivers and enquiring is they are on an ‘Essential Journey’ despite this specific activity not being against the Law.

A third instance of actions Off the Mark’ were fining people £60.00 for buying ‘Non-Essential items.

The most environmentally disturbing ‘off the Mark’  action by Derbyshire Police was throwing black dye into  the water of a well-known Buxton beauty spot, to deter people from going there to take ‘selfies’ with the lake in the background. Just imagine, blackening the beauty of those lake waters, probably chuckling like small bullies, just because they can!

Possibly the strongest and sanest voice heard recently was that of Steve Baker, MP. This is what he had to say about this terrible but sadly necessary intrusion on our very freedoms.


The Only uniforms to be trusted within the UK are MILITARY. Why, because the Military owe their allegiance to the Crown, whereas the Police Forces are controlled and willingly pushed by politicians.

    Derbyshire Police throw black dye into the water of a well-known Buxton beauty spot every year, to deter people from going in the water, which is caustic

      I think a simple notice warning people the water is harmful rather than polluting the water if it was the case, its more fun tormenting innocent walkers than doing actual Policing.

        Back in 2012, the year before the first widely reported dye treatment, the Mail reported that explicit warning notices were being ignored by visitors; there had been occasional swimmers for years, but their numbers had recently rocketed, attracted by social media images of the water.

        A large board on the site warned of the presence in the water of ‘car wrecks, dead animals, excrement, rubbish’*, while another stated that dissolved chemicals – ‘similar to bleach’ – could cause skin and eye irritation, rashes, fungal infections and stomach problems.

        Nevertheless, the Mail found several happy families splashing about:

        Boys aged five and six played with old plastic bottles and milk cartons in the water as their mother, Sam Ahmed, looked on from the shore.

        The 36-year-old said she had seen the signs but was not concerned. ‘I have told the children not to swallow any water or go in deeper than their necks,’ she said. ‘It is so beautiful and blue now the sun’s out.’

        *On a lighter note, I commented at the time that this list sounded like the chorus of the worst Country & Western song ever; alas, my brain supplied a suitably catchy tune at the time and now I’ve had the earworm again ever since the story re-emerged.

    To implement these ‘measures, for the preservation of life indicates a reverence for life that is unquestionable and laudable. Yet hypocritical.

    There is time yet, the MP, Steve Baker says: and there has been time also, unused and not even approached, to stop the deliberate killing of the lives of all the innocents in the wombs of their mothers. These lives are far greater in number than even the most dire guesses of the numbers who might, possibly, get infected and die from the impact of this virus.

    Dystopia is with us. It has been for a generation. Several generations. We have done little to stop it, even when the wailing and mourning has been loud in our ears.

    You can’t even trust the military, Common Purpose have “educated” people within the upper ranks just as they have done within the Police, civil service and local Government.

    Just remember there were a bunch of cadets reprimanded and one dismissed for posing for a selfie with TR and the top brass sent out a directive dissuading the ranks from such activity in the future.

    I just wonder if the owners of the blue lagoon can sue the Police for vandalism? Had a member of the Public carried out such an act I’m sure the Police would have been on their doorstep right away.
