Patriots On Trial – John Banks takes on the system at Doncaster Magistrates Court

  Justice in Doncaster

On Wednesday 04 July I attended a civil hearing at Doncaster Magistrates Court, where a prominent patriot and political activist, John Banks, was fighting to defend his freedom to protest against the Islamisation of our country.

He was also there to defend his right to forcefully criticise government policies – and to criticise those organs of the state complicit in perpetuating those policies whilst at the same time trying to cover-up a well-orchestrated programme of enormous injustice against the British people.

I have known John a long time, both as a political activist and as a friend, and I have long felt that the systematic persecution of such patriots and political activists should be reported on and openly discussed so that “we the people” can realise the extent that the State will go to suppress the righteous indignation of ordinary citizens who see what is unfolding right in front of them and who wish to warn others of the inevitable outcome, which may well extend to civil war on our streets within a generation.

John Banks has a long and honourable history of standing up and saying the things that the State would rather not have said or broadcast. I have attended several events where John has given powerful and impassioned speeches concerning not only the Islamisation of our country, but the attempted cover-up of one of the most outrageous scandals of our time – the rape and trafficking of thousands of our young and vulnerable children by predatory Muslim rape gangs – or as the media would say – “grooming gangs” as detailed in the 2014 book “Easy Meat” by Peter McLoughlin.

Needless to say, John has had to contend with some of the worst things that the State has been able to throw at him, and on this occasion he was required to appear before Deputy District Judge Russell in a civil hearing to determine whether he should be jailed for breaching the terms of an ASBO.

An ASBO is short for an Anti-Social Behaviour Order. These were originally devised to deal with children and teenagers whose rowdiness occasionally got out of hand, and rather than to subject them to the full criminal court process, it would deal with behaviour that “caused -or was capable of causing – harm, harassment, alarm or distress to any person.”

“Any person.” Not “any reasonable person.”

Any person who was, or could have possibly been, or who could claim to have been “alarmed or distressed” by the actions of John Banks or any other individual, could have his complaint dealt with via a legal process resulting in an Anti-Social Behaviour Order. It is not difficult to see how easily this process could be abused to suppress thoroughly justified and politically motivated protests by patriots such as John Banks.

On this occasion at Doncaster Magistrates Court, the police were trying to argue that John was in breach of an ASBO issued when he made a political protest that was deemed not to have met evidential standards that would have justified criminal charges.

This was serious. If John had been found to be in breach of his ASBO, he could be facing six months to two years imprisonment, and this was at a time when various political activists such as Jayda Fransen, Paul Golding and Tommy Robinson had recently been jailed on various trumped-up charges – all of which fell into the category of “activities that make the State look bad when it has become obvious that the State has become derelict in its primary duty of keeping its citizens safe.”

On the morning of Wednesday 04 July, the police opened their case by playing some CCTV recordings of John Banks speaking at various rallies in Manchester, Rotherham and Sunderland. There were snorts of derision from the public gallery when it became obvious that the police prosecutor was unable to get to grips with the “ClickLink” video system designed to communicate CCTV recordings to everyone in the courtroom, and even  more so when the bundles of documents comprising the evidence against John were presented to the judge, as they were hopelessly disorganised.

Eventually the police prosecutor had to resort to playing the CCTV recordings on his laptop, once to the judge, and once to the defence counsel and the rest of us in the public gallery. Full marks for improvisation, I suppose, although one could easily see that the judge was not impressed.

The CCTV recordings admittedly showed John using “colourful” language to denounce the Islamisation of our country, and to denounce the predatory behaviour of increasing numbers of Islamic grooming gangs.

He was also very scathing concerning the seeming inability of the police, social services and government to effectively deal with the increasing problems that have been caused over the last 20-30 years as a result.

However, at no time was John seen to be inciting murder or mayhem, and he was careful to draw a distinction between Muslims as people and the ideology of Islam itself. He only said what many of us already knew – that if things kept going the way they were, then we were headed for very dark times indeed, and that we were now in a perilous situation that could have easily been avoided if only the State had not been guilty of gross dereliction of duty in its failure to keep its citizens safe.

After much discussion back and forth between the police prosecutor and the judge, it eventually transpired that one of the CCTV recordings was missing. A courier was dispatched to track down the errant CCTV recording and in the meantime the trial was momentarily postponed.

During the break I was able to chat with John Morley, who was acting as an advocate for John Banks. I told him that I wished that I had had him representing me at my trial at Southwark Crown Court in 2017. He would have made short work of Fiyaz “Fizzy Bollocks” Mughal in the courtroom.

Eventually the errant CCTV recording was delivered to Judge Russell and the case resumed. The police prosecutor argued that John had been obstructing the police in their duty of arresting Jayda Fransen at a public rally, however Judge Russell appeared to acknowledge the argument put forward by the defence that on the contrary, the CCTV recording showed that John was merely trying to have Jayda escorted through the crowd towards the police lines in a safe manner, and that there was no attempt to obstruct the police.

Despite our initial forebodings, Judge Russell found that although John Banks’ actions undoubtedly constituted “behaviour causing, or capable of causing harm, harassment, alarm or distress to any person” under the current wording of the Act relating to Anti-Social Behaviour Orders, the case was not strong enough to allow the police to exercise their “powers of arrest” in this instance.

Not only that, but as the original ASBO had come with no time restrictions, the Judge set a limitation of twelve months for the duration of the ASBO. There was much wailing and gnashing of teeth from the police prosecutor, who having seen defeat snatched from the jaws of victory in terms of having John summarily arrested, had argued that the ASBO should at the very least have been kept in place for an extended period of time.

I was pleased -as I am sure most of John’s numerous supporters who were present at the hearing were pleased -to see John emerge from the Court a free man (albeit with a twelve-month restriction on his political activities.)

In my opinion both John Banks and his advocate John Morley deserve medals for heroism in the face of the enemy, although I doubt whether our current spineless Prime Minister Theresa May would agree. We will probably not see a nomination for Lord Banks of Doncaster any time soon. However, the battle to save our country continues, and as the old Buddhist saying has it – “Never underestimate the power of one drop of water. On its own it may seem insignificant, but over time it will wear away the biggest stone, or fill the largest ocean.”

Make Britain Great Again – March Against Child Abuse in Telford – Saturday 21 April 2018

   MBGA in Telford

Yesterday I was privileged to join the March against Child Abuse in Telford, Shropshire. The march was organised by Make Britain Great Again (MBGA), and we met outside the local council offices at Darby House to protest about the systematic rape and grooming epidemic in Telford, which as we are now finding, has been going on and getting worse for decades, and about which very little has been done by either the Telford police or the local authorities including the council and social services.

The scale of this rape and grooming epidemic looks to overtake even the scandalous events in Rotherham and Rochdale, where over a thousand young girls were systematically abused by predatory Muslim gangs. Since this hit the headlines back in 2014, when the book Easy Meat was published by Peter McLoughlin, similar patterns involving rape and grooming gangs have been uncovered in every town and city where there is a substantial population of Muslims.

The most common argument is that “well, white men abuse and rape children too,” which is true enough as far as it goes, but only in Islam is divine sanction given to the practice of abusing and raping under-age children, especially those who are non-Muslim. This is because of the passages in the Islamic texts that describe the Islamic Prophet Muhammad taking a six-year-old girl, Aisha, for his wife, and consummating the marriage when she was nine years old and he was fifty-four years old.

Muslims look on the Islamic Prophet Muhammad as the perfect example for mankind – “Al-Insan al-Kamil”, and this means that if Muhammad did it, then it is good enough for every Muslim for all time. Some Muslims try to argue that the practice of marrying young children was the norm in many cultures around that time, which may be true, but the point is that today, in Britain, the age of consent is sixteen years old, and anyone who has sexual relations with a child under that age is breaking the law.

The police have been arguing that when they find a Muslim, or a group of Muslims with an obviously underage girl, perhaps under the influence of drink and / or drugs, perhaps in a state of undress in the bedroom of a house raided by the police, more often than not they will say that she appeared to be consenting to sex and therefore no action will be taken against those Muslims. To say the very least, this sends out the wrong message.

If she is obviously under the age of consent, it should be treated as the serious criminal offence that it is, and those Muslims should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, and arguments about whether it is permissible in their culture or their so-called religion should not be allowed to take priority. As things stand, in most cases the police are reluctant to take any action because of the risk of being labelled as “racist” or “Islamophobic.”

Back in September 2016, I was part of a delegation of patriots meeting with Superintendent Tom Hardy at Telford police station. We had assembled a dossier of information which explained clearly that the rape and grooming epidemic was not just a random spike of criminality committed by random criminals, but part of a pattern based on predatory Muslim gangs who were doing what they were doing because it had divine sanction in Islam.

We formally handed over the dossier to Telford police in the expectation that it would be studied and that it would form the basis of the appropriate, robust action needed to stop the epidemic in its tracks. Good luck with that, I hear you say, and you would be right. Judging by the complete lack of any meaningful change in the observable behaviour of Telford police over the following 18 months, the dossier had obviously been filed under W – for the waste-paper basket.

Furthermore, we made it clear that if the police and local authorities continued to treat the problem as one of random criminality, then the problem would get worse year on year as the Muslim demographic continued to grow. Fast forward eighteen months to the present day, and –  surprise, surprise, this is exactly the situation that we foresaw back in 2016.

The primary speakers at the event on Saturday 21 April, Luke Nash-Jones and Martin Costello, gave well-argued and passionate speeches denouncing the lack of action taken by the police in such situations. They emphasised the evils of the culture of political correctness and multiculturalism that had effectively paralysed the ability of police to tackle the grooming gangs not only in Telford but also throughout the country, and they were particularly scathing about Superintendent Tom Hardy, who had been quoted as saying “the problem of under-age grooming in Telford is no worse than in other parts of the country.”

What, and that makes it all right, does it? Whatever happened to enforcing the law, robustly and without fear or favour? There is an argument to be made that the police are failing an entire generation of children with their inaction, allowing a campaign of systematic sexual abuse to blight the lives of thousands – perhaps hundreds of thousands – of vulnerable young girls, many of whom are then fobbed off when they try to report those crimes to the police. In some cases the girls themselves are subject to prosecution.

Worse than that, when patriots like ourselves have attempted to highlight the problems caused by Islam, and have attempted to organise ourselves in order to initiate discussions which would enable informed criticism of Islam to take place in public, we have been systematically hounded to the point where our leaders have been attacked, charged, prosecuted and jailed.

Looking on the bright side, the event was attended by a couple of recently elected Telford councillors who took it in turn to describe their concern over the levels of child abuse in the town. The very fact that we are now able to persuade some of the newly elected councillors to join our patriotic cause and to speak on our behalf does give us all some hope for the future.

A very strong message was sent out by MBGA that if the police, the local authorities, and ultimately the government continued to ignore these extremely serious problems, and failed to deal with them effectively, then there would come a time in the not too distant future when a tipping point would be reached, and the ability to reach a peaceful resolution would be taken out of our hands.

We only had a few hundred people at the rally in Telford on Saturday, but I would urge every person of goodwill, that is to say every non-Muslim, to support MBGA at every opportunity, to turn out at future rallies in their tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, and to help Make Britain Great Again by forcing change in the political environment that continues to allow the systematic rape and abuse of our vulnerable young children by gangs of predatory Muslim paedophiles.

Of course, I have no intention of implying that all Muslims are incapable of goodwill towards non-Muslims. What I would say is – actions speak louder than words – and Muslims should seriously consider the implications of their actions – or of the actions of others in their community.
