Sir Patrick Moore heading to jail?
If we compare the comments made by Sir Patrick Moore ("the only good kraut is a dead kraut") in a recent interview with the Radio Times to the comments that Roy West was today sentenced for making, using the West sentencing as a benchmark, Sir Patrick should be facing a long custodial sentence.
The comments made by Sir Patrick Moore could viewed as genocidal. I have German ancestry (Baden Baden) and I do view Patrick Moore’s comments as deeply unpleasant to be truthful. If I made a complaint and reported him for racism, would he be arrested, held in custody and sentenced because he said something I disliked? It is highly unlikely that he would and regardless of that I would never dream of making such a ridiculous complaint in the first place.
The difference between Sir Patrick Moore making offensive comments about Germans and Roy West from Dukinfield making offensive comments on a similar but far less sinister or offensive vein is that Sir Patrick Moore is an Establishment figure capable of legally defending himself whereas Roy West is a hard up working class activist and an easy target for malicious politically inspired persecution who just also happens to have made serious enemies of the local political mafia as a result of exposing their lavish earnings on a tax payer funded meal ticket.
Roy West has been arrested and convicted twice now for saying far less than Sir Patrick Moore. Today he was given a suspended prison sentence, bound by curfew and electronic tagging and had a restraining order imposed. Cllr Taylor was present throughout the sentencing and it must be said he looked most satisfied with the outcome.
As far as I am aware Roy West has yet two further court appearances to face. In one of which Cllr John Taylor is the complainant. He will be very luck to avoid a custodial sentence if found guilty in my opinion. As stated in previous articles, before commencing his political career five years ago Roy West was a man of impeccable character with no criminal record. Now he has two convictions and possibly another two pending.
You know it is said the road to tyranny is paved with good intentions, that may very well true but I say the road to tyranny is also paved by traitors and cowards. From what I know of Roy West he is at times a bit of a nuisance who gets fixated on matters with which others may not. A nuisance is one thing and a criminal is another. In my opinion Roy West is not a criminal and the offences for which he has been convicted and sentenced are purely out of the nightmare world of Orwell’s 1984.
Those involved in this whole shameful affair should reflect upon their role in the persecution of this man. The traitors have no conscience and take great enjoyment from the suffering of their victims but it is the cowards that I am thinking of at this moment in time. The cowards are those who knew what was going on was unjust but for their own reasons they just turned a blind eye and either ignored it or actively colluded with the traitors.
I will conclude with words of wisdom from Edmund Burke: All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing
