'Censorship in the UK: Big Brother is watching and punishing in the former cradle of free speech'. By John Leake
This video substack is very interesting and enlightening and continues great scholarship by John as we fight tyranny.
‘It is no exaggeration to say that the United Kingdom is the cradle of free speech. It was precisely the English Common Law, Parliament, and publishing tradition going back to John Milton in the 17th century that engendered our tradition of free speech. The UK’s Parliament has served as a model institution for representative government throughout the world. Note that the word “Parliament” derives from the French parler—”to speak.” Note also that speaking and thinking are intertwined, because if you cannot speak something, you will also find it very difficult to think about it.
When did the British state decide to throw out this tradition? Nowadays the UK is a place in which Big Brother is Watching and severely punishing those who violate the state’s growing restricted speech code. In the following interview, the British comedian and author, Konstantin Kisin, paints a dire picture of the UK’s new restricted speech dictatorship.’

London has almost 1M CCTV cameras facing onto public roads, the tube, all public areas, the courts, govt and municipal offices and every part of the city where people are involved in public life. The original intention was to fight crime and, especially the IRA threat of terrorism in the 1970's onwards.
What followed from the 1980's was the insidious creep of general citizen surveillance.
The London tabloid press always had free reign and by design existed to spill the beans on the most salacious stories about famous individuals' falls from grace. They even had a war chest to settle libel claims in and out of court.
Things started changing already in the early 1990s where crimes such as cocaine trafficking was so out of control that almost every single pound sterling note had traces of cocaine and the entire city was therefore under permanent surveillance.
London has always been a city that had crime prevention - nationally and internationally and intelligence - high up on their agenda in terms of the National Crime Agency, MI5 and MI6.
So the system was already perfectly installed for plan covid.
As for free speech, the UK took its recent lead from the USA - in terms of their special relationship - and it's been downhill ever since.
Still Boris and other high up govt officials do regularly resign when their leadership ability is compromised, unlike in the USA.
Again, it's nothing on the level of the USA, but it's definitely a case of not being able to fully articulate certain alternative views for general public consumption.
Dr John Campbell (UK), posted a video this week , with figures taken from an FOI request ( regarding statistics from Lanarkshire, if I remember it was either for still births or miscarriages). Within 12 hours , the figures were deemed to be wrong and 'they' adjusted them. This had already happened a couple of months before, same thing, a FOI request for myocarditis in the Swindon area . Again, the next day, they said the figures were wrong. What on earth is going on ? Are we actually now living in "1984"
