Britain Cracks Down on Whistleblowers

As a nation’s character declines, liberty follows suit. Progressive Britain is a case in point:

Police are set to be given new powers to seize confidential material from journalists.

In a worrying blow to Press freedom, the changes may also mean journalists will be forced to identify whistleblowers to the police. …

It raises the prospect that someone who uncovers wrongdoing will not come forward if they risk being named to the police.

According media law expert Gavin Millar QC,

“Journalists will only be able to claim confidentiality by testifying that the source was free to give them the material.

“This will be impossible for most public interest disclosures by whistleblowers.”

But if Britons would allow themselves to be disarmed, and then allow themselves to be displaced from their own country by Islamic welfare colonists, they aren’t likely to put up a fight over this. To paraphrase Leonardo da Vinci, it would have been easier to resist at the beginning.

    Makes one wonder why the British bothered to fight the Nazis. They are becoming everything the Nazis were, but at least the Nazis dressed better.

    Had Hitler won, Europe would have been united under the same laws that are coming. So many brave dead men did so much only to have their grandchildren embrace the ideas they fought against and embrace them with loving arms and adoration.

    Hail Britannia, as the once great nation slowly disappears into nothingness.

  3. The British are a broken people who have lost the will to resist.

    Who would have thought that this would happen in a single generation since the end of WWII.

    Watch and learn my American brothers, its coming your way.

    Is this the “independent media council” the EU is calling for to award unelected bureaucrats power to sack journalists who don’t align with the totalitarian vision ?

    Britain is done and no longer worth talking about. But take note American sheeple. Look at Britain and see what happens when a society becomes weak, stupid, and addicted to political correctness. Our turn is coming, and soon.
