DONNA : WHEN BRIAN & I DID FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION FOR THE BENEFIT OF EVERYONE, STOPPING TERROR ATTACKS IN UK FOR SEVEN YEARS, IT WAS POWERFUL, BUT NOT ABOUT POWER (06.01.2018)
What is really interesting about Article 50 is the question why politicians did not put in place proper checks and balances for… civilian exiles from… within the EU.
... the beauty of true freedom of expression is all around us...
All that Article 50 really does is bypass due process that should be in place.
The only people who have profited from Article 50 are politicians and media barons.
The only reason the European Union will ever have civilian exiles from within the European Union is because there is a real failure to address the… most simple fact of civilians… freedom of expression.
When civilians find themselves forced out of the UK into… exile… within the European Union because there isn’t even any… freedom of expression for… civilians, there is a very real problem that is not the fault of any … civilian.
What happened to us, happened over a very long period of time.
The failure is absolutely and entirely and only the fault of politicians.
The public don’t have any problem with people’s… freedom of expression.
It’s only politicians who have a problem with freedom of expression.
I have never known… freedom of expression per se.
I have never known democracy.
There is no democracy in the UK because there is no freedom of expression, because every adult knows democracy is about more than a vote.
It’s a shame politicians are afraid of freedom of expression for… civilians.
When Brian and I did freedom of expression for everyone, despite what was done to us, we stopped terror attacks in the UK for seven long years, which was for the benefit of… everyone.
There were no terror attacks in the UK on my seven plus year watch in Parliament Square, Central London.
It was harrowing and it traumatised us etc etc and so on and so forth, but our doing freedom of expression was for the benefit of everyone, to try and save defenceless civilian… lives !!.
It could not have been more serious.
I remember when a van crashed through Carriage Gates in the early hours of 7 January 2007, Brian went across the road toward possible trouble to see if he could help. We did what we did... despite the terror threat of where we were.
When Brian and I did freedom of expression for everyone, when politicians hated us, there were no terror attacks on any politicians in the UK on our watch… which benefited them too.
When Brian and I did freedom of expression for everyone, when media barons hated us, there were no terror attacks on any journalists in the UK on our watch... which benefited them too.
When Brian and I did freedom of expression for everyone when police hated us, there were no terror attacks on any police officers on our watch... which benefited them too.
At Downing Street, armed !! police did actually say they didn't like to stand at the front where Steve and I did, and yet we were actually protecting... them too.
We really were the only law in town in Westminster.
We were cognizant of the reality that we were the most vulnerable in the event of a terror attack, but felt there was less likelihood of any terror attack taking place... in Westminster through our being there, so we did what we did because we really didn't want... any terror attacks.
We only ever did peace for the benefit of… everyone.
What we did was powerful but it wasn’t about ‘power’.
It was all about civilians using… freedom of expression to try and save lives.
What I know is that it is the true… freedom of expression that is of itself powerful.
