Same old same old

No sooner has Islam4UK gotten their publicity for the proposed march through Wootton Bassett, than the government have banned them. We’re led to believe that the timing is coincidental & that the government have been preparing the ban for months but the timing does appear striking.

As usual, the government’s answer to a problem is to ban it. Banning rarely works but it does grab headlines & it does fool a few people into thinking the government are actually doing something.

Banning drugs hasn’t stopped any of the problems associated with drugs use, banning dangerous dogs hasn’t stopped dangerous dogs attacking & killing people, banning handguns hasn’t stopped criminals using them, banning alcohol from under-18s doesn’t stop them maruading drunkenly through every town in the country. The only thing which has worked is banning nuclear explosions. Since Nu-Labour made it an offence to cause a nuclear explosion a few years ago, there hasn’t been a single case in the UK, mind you there wasn’t a single case prior to that but why let that spoil a success story.

So, banning Islam4UK will do precisely bugger-all. They were banned under previous names al-Ghurabaa and The Saved Sect & fuck-all good that did. Anjem Choudary will do exactly what he’s been doing for the last few years under a different guise.

The government could, in one simple act, do more to make society better than banning some randomly-named organisation with few members. They could stop giving the leader of those groups £25,000 every year of free cash.

I would normally link to the subject’s website, but it seems to have been banned.
