Remaining time of freedom supported by the west
BORIS JOHNSON’S warning at the Munich Security Conference yesterday was bleak.
“After a generation of freedom, we are now staring at a generation of bloodshed and misery. ”
Not only the invasion of Ukraine is “a shock that can reverberate around the world”, it will also send the message that brutal aggression works when dealing with the West.
If crazy President Putin occupies the land Unable to be stopped, Boris made it clear that Russia must eventually fail and be considered a failure.
There is still a rapidly decreasing chance of avoiding war. But Western democracies must brace themselves to defend freedom.
While properly funded Nato is vital, we can no longer rely on a united and divided EU to deal with new challenges.
Plans for a New European Security Council headed by Britain but independence from Brussels might be a good place to start.
Boris’s strong words yesterday can only strengthen his credentials.
As he said, Britain has repeatedly demonstrated its commitment to freedom and democracy.
It’s time for some of the other Western leaders to make their mark.
There is no secret justice
WE DECIDE freedom in the face of Putin, but a new ruling means privacy laws in the UK are a gift to criminals.
Attorney General Dominic Raab pledged today to prevent the “escalation” of such legislation. He has to do more than that.
It is important for the Government to do everything in its power to reverse last week’s Supreme Court decision on protect the privacy of ALL suspects by anonymously granting permission until charged.
It brings the terrifying prospect of wide-ranging secret justice one step closer.
In the last few years, British judges have turned the laxity of privacy laws into a flood.
Now it’s time to turn the tables, Mr. Raab.
