In the UK an individual has rights laid down since Magna Carta.
This is particularly important when a crime is committed or suspected of being committed. As under the rights laid down from Magna Carta onwards, someone in the UK is deemed innocent until proven guilty. If you are accused of a crime, the onus is on the State to prove your guilt.
The writ of Habeus Corpus prevents the State from imprisoning you without evidence of a crime.
Under the European legal system, they never had a Magna Carta of their own and as such they work under a different assumption than we do, in that you are guilty unless you can prove your innocence.
Thus, the State has the legal authority to imprison you whilst they find the evidence and formulate the case to convict you. The onus is on you to prove your innocence as there is…

Leisa writes on Saturday, “The Lord gave me this strong prophetic word yesterday. A paradigm shift is about to descend upon this nation and we need to be declaring God’s goodness and sovereignty across the UK. Here is the Word.:
THE LEADERS PROPHECY
given to Leisa Ebere on 2nd August 2019
The Lord says that, “The pride of the leaders of this nation has caused blockage to blessing ordained by My Sovereign Hand. For surely, as in Nebuchadnezzar’s time, there is witchcraft within the city gates, which has caused a stubbornness of heart amongst the people,” says the Lord. “And rash decisions even now are being made by leaders, which are not aligned with My Kingdom’s advancement. The darkness of mind that came in the form of boanthropy upon that Babylonian king was allowed through open doors because of pride, witchcraft and tolerance of evil; and so shall a similar fate happen to those leaders that oppose My Divine Purposes in this hour across the nation of the United Kingdom. My People, rise with an expectancy of a New Day and let your tongues be active with declarations of righteousness and breakthrough for My Will to be performed across this land. Cast aside all doubt and keep your eyes fixed upon Me. For surely, I am separating and I am choosing men and women of purpose and destiny. Do not listen to doomsayers; but declare My goodness and walk into destiny as all decisions are made according to the leading and movement of My Spirit,” says the Lord of Hosts.

As with all prophetic words and visions, the above is offered for weighing and testing with the Lord and holy writ.
TIMES are changing. Two of my great heroes have recently been banned from speaking on university campuses. Twenty years ago they were firebrand radicals, alarming the establishment with their fervour and campaigning. No one silenced them then. Now they have been silenced. Not by the establishment, but by the new cultural bullies.They are Germaine Greer…

It’s now vital that all right-thinking people take a stand against this deeply insidious and increasing fascism. Gavin draws to this important conclusion:
“And that is the origin of the idea of the hate crime. The cultural Marxists claim the right of the state to look inside your head, deem you to be bigoted and hate-filled, and set out to punish and silence you. They use tools ranging from the Twitter mob to the law. But just like Marxism Part 1, Part 2 won’t let up until the critics have been silenced and the state guards thoughts, as well as speech, of the citizens.
“How can this be resisted? With great difficulty. Words have changed their meaning. People have already been silenced. The young are being nurtured in the practice of censorship and control. The snowflake generation have mixed bad therapy with muddled philosophy and have swallowed it whole.’
“The struggle is between those who believe in free speech and those who add a ‘but’.”
My conclusion of two years ago today has, regrettably, proven true and developed into a wider issue out of what was euphemistically termed ‘CoE General Sex ‘Sin-nod’ 2017′. In opening my blog Synod sides with satan – risk of Anglican schism/shaking, I note that the legislative assembly of our national church ruled against practising the holy ordinance of normal marriage by saying, in effect, as in this extract from the blog:
‘General Synod: “NO, not as it means keeping God’s word on sex and marriage! How dare we insult people with what You say and expect.” [July 2017 AD]
‘Thus begins the Great Apostasy foretold by the apostle to the Gentiles?
…The Day of the Lord will not come unless the falling away comes first and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped…(2Thess 2:3-4)
‘The great falling away from faith in Christ Jesus has been gaining momentum for years (ie. mainly by individuals). However, decisions and official declarations by the Church of England’s recent General Synod, the tricameral deliberative and legislative gathering of bishops, clergy and laity, means we could now regard the Great Apostasy as being ‘officially’ under way.’
Therefore, along with a great many Christians I’m deeply concerned to learn the CoE’s subsequent official instructions and guidance documents have been quoted in court as evidence against a Christian! As a nation we’ve thus fallen into utter, craven stupidity and are reaping the consequences of defying the Word of the Almighty.
Dr David Mackereth lost his job with the Department for Work and Pensions after he refused to identify clients by their chosen gender instead of their biological sex – and that was not in an actual case but only when discussing a hypothetical case of a 6-foot bearded man wanting to be called a woman!
Dr Mackereth said that using ‘transgender pronouns’ went against his conscience as a doctor and Bible-believing Christian. As explained earlier: “I believe gender is defined by biology and genetics. And that as a Christian the Bible teaches us that God made humans male or female.” (Telegraph 2018)
It is very disturbing to see a doctor with 26 years of experience in A&E medicine being forced to choose between telling the truth and his profession. In dismissing him, the DWP has violated the three freedoms of conscience, speech and religion in one go. We rely on doctors telling the truth. Imagine if they were forced to accept a patient’s chosen diagnosis!
In response, the DWP declared that failing to accommodate clients’ preferences to use ‘transgender pronouns’ would amount to “harassment” under the Equality Act 2010 and dismissed Dr Mackereth as Health and Disability Assessor. Supported by the Christian Legal Centre, he challenged the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions but lost his case because the DWP relied upon Church of England documents to prove their case, even though the doctor is not an Anglican but a Bible-believing Christian! (Two terms obviously not synonymous!)
In CofE Teaching Used As Evidence Against Christian In Court Andrea Williams, the Christian Legal Centre’s CEO, says,
“What really upset me though, as a member of the Church of England’s General Synod, was that the people who sacked Dr Mackereth for his Christian beliefs relied on the Church of England’s position to justify their actions. I have spent a lot of time trying to tell Christians, of all denominations, that our public witness to the Truth – all aspects of it – is vital. When we are on TV, radio, or even in court we are often told that our brand of Christianity is not what lots of other Christians think. But, this week, for the first time, what the Church of England says was used as evidence against a Christian in court. For me it was another stark reminder of the damage caused by the Church of England’s abandonment of truth.
“The evidence deployed against Dr Mackereth included reference to the House of Bishops’ Guidance for welcoming transgender people, and the Pastoral Guidance for use in conjunction with the Affirmation of Baptismal Faith in the context of gender transition. I criticised these moves towards acceptance of transgenderism at the time, and Carys Moseley explained why the transgender issue is a first-order gospel issue.
“What is important for Dr Mackereth’s case is that the Pastoral Guidance says that transgender people should be referred to using their chosen name and pronoun. The guidance is, therefore, that Christians should not tell the truth about the biological sex of a transgender person. I think that, at the very least, in a civilised and fair society all people should accept this is, at least, a freedom of conscience issue.” (Emphases RB)
May the Lord now rapidly fulfill several prophetic visions of churches being shaken to their foundations…
Recommended, nay mandatory reading – an eye-opening expose:
The Transgender Issue is a First-Order Gospel Issue (26 Jan 2018), an introduction to which reads,
‘The Church of England bishops recently passed on responsibility for crafting liturgies celebrating gender reassignment to local clergy. This article by Carys Moseley shows that in doing this they perpetuate fundamental theological errors such as blasphemy, rebellion against God as Creator, dishonouring parents, and renaming God. The transgender pathway is shown to be a counterfeit of the Christian gospel. This will affect people’s trust in the clergy as well as the integrity of theological training…’
In considering those latter effects of the bishops’ abdication of their responsibilities, the author confesses, “This whole article has been extraordinarily difficult to write because careful investigation shows the situation of the Church of England to be catastrophic. We have there the wholesale public capitulation of an entire denomination, something truly sobering…(and it) is a first-order gospel issue. Its only hope before the Almighty God who loves us with a holy love is heartfelt repentance, and that must begin from the top down.”
Therefore, what was Synod siding with satan is now the Anglican hierarchy’s apparent subservience to it, not to our Lord and Saviour Christ Jesus. It is outright apostasy.
Praise the Lord for the landmark legal ruling overturning a High Court decision and allowing Freedom of Speech, thus enabling Christians (and others) to express their belief in public and declare the fullness of scripture without fear of judicial, educational, professional or business-related censorship, intimidation and unemployment.
In A Victory For Christians Everywhere Andrea Williams, Chief Executive of Christian Concern and the Christian Legal Centre comments on the judgment handed down this week in the case of Felix Ngole, the student who was expelled from Sheffield University for expressing Biblical views on sexual ethics (emphases RB),
“I am delighted by this victory for free speech. The judges in the Court of Appeal have ruled in favour of Felix Ngole and against the university, saying that he should not have been expelled merely for expressing his Christian views. His expulsion was a serious violation of free speech that threatened Christians and others with a bar to employment for expressing what the Bible says about sexual ethics.”
‘…The university argued that even expressing Biblical views in a church, or any community where the speaker could be identified, should result in a bar to employment in social services. Even if such views were expressed in private, they would risk being reported. This amounts to endorsement by the university of something akin to a totalitarian regime where people are reported to the state authorities by informants for expressing politically incorrect views. As it was, Felix’s Facebook posts were anonymously reported to the university by someone with a clear political agenda.’
Andrea’s detailed announcement concludes,
A resounding message for freedom
‘This judgment must send a resounding message to Universities and employers across the land. Christians and others should be allowed to express their views. This is what free speech means. No one has freedom not to be offended. We must be able to disagree with tolerance, and not with silencing or bullying. Places of work, and universities in particular, should not be places where certain views are deemed politically incorrect and worthy of expulsion.
‘This judgment means that we are free to speak, free to express Christian views, to advocate for those views at university, in the classroom, and at work.
The truth sets us free
‘Christians should use our freedom of speech and unashamedly proclaim Biblical truth, however unpopular or out of fashion it may be. The truth will win out in the end. We hope that this judgment encourages Christians to be bold and fearless in expressing their Christian faith at work, at university, in church or elsewhere. All truth is found in Jesus Christ. In Colossians 1 we are told:
“For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together”.
‘The world needs the truth for in the Truth all things hold together. And it is by the Truth we are all set free.
‘Felix is exactly the kind of person that we want in social work. Today he stands vindicated; today justice has been done. But it’s not just for him; it’s for us, the Church here in the UK. Let’s ensure that this emboldens us to speak of the life-giving good news that is found in Jesus Christ.’
This morning’s politi-chatter was about humiliating Michael Gove in the latest lap of the Conservatives election for Mrs May’s successor, for having stabbed Boris Johnson in the back during the Leave campaign. This then propelled her into power and later Gove failed to take a stand with him at Chequers when she demanded her Cabinet accept her EU deal, which subsequently led to her premiership being humiliated in not only Brexit negotiations but also the related Parliamentary voting.
According to the word Emma Stark heard from the Lord, the really good part of that is it would have been part of His strategy to deal with our pride:
“I am making some situations [to] bring nations to their knees right now, and even a humbleness to come within the British Isles”, says the Lord, “that I may break the spirit of Leviathan off you and your pride.” For the Lord says, “I cannot come near the British Isles while there is pride, because I am held by my word that says I must resist those who are proud.” But the Lord says, “As there is humbleness and as confusion even opens a door to a hands-up that says, ‘I don’t have an answer’” – and as that brings a sense of “Oh God! We need to look to you outside of ourselves” – the Lord says, “Then Leviathan breaks”, and then that revival rushes towards us.’
And of course we’re all well aware that many are associated with the ‘Pride’ movement, and politicians and some clergy trashed God’s holy ordinances. As posited in revisiting a most glowing prophecy claimed to have been for Mrs May’s premiership, her failure to stand upon scripture would have been part of her unraveling.
Therefore, the same process could apply to Michael Gove for his anti-Christian role as Lord Chancellor, head of the Judiciary. I believe the Lord may now call him to account.
The details are recounted in this Press Release Judgement in magistrate Richard Page’s case shows ‘deep intolerance’ of Christians issued by Christian Concern, emphases mine:.
‘A Christian magistrate has today lost his appeal against the Lord Chancellor and Lord Chief Justice’s decision to remove him from the judiciary.
‘In the decision by Mr Justice Choudhury, the decisions of the Employment Tribunal were upheld, ruling against his claims for discrimination and victimisation because of his Christian faith.
‘Mr Page was removed from his post as magistrate in 2015, after 15 years of exemplary service, by then Lord Chancellor Michael Gove and Lord Chief Justice, Lord Thomas, for expressing his belief that it is in a child’s best interests to have a mother and a father.
‘Mr Page was later also blocked from returning to his position as a non-executive director of the Kent and Medway NHS Trust for having expressed the same view on a BBC Radio 4 documentary on Christians being squeezed out of public life. In a second judgment handed down this morning, the Employment Appeal Tribunal rejected Mr Page’s case against the NHS Trust, saying that it was not Mr Page’s belief but the fact that he expressed his belief that led to his removal…(!!!!)
‘Mr Page will seek to appeal these decisions, given its important ramifications for the freedom of Christians to hold and express their beliefs in public life…’ cont. reading here.

Footnote 1 to UK Situation Summary #4 reads, ‘Democracy 17.4 supports English Democrats lawsuit against the PM to obtain a declaration in Law that the Law states the UK left the EU on 30th March 2019, and in blocking any extension to Article 50.’
One of few parliamentarians with a backbone for resolutely defending democracy, the chairman of the European Scrutiny Committee and former shadow Attorney General Sir Bill Cash MP, as a back-bencher in the Commons last week demanded Theresa May’s resignation of Prime Minister. After hours of discussions with QCs and former judges, Sir Bill believes the British Government’s extension of Article 50 is unlawful.
He writes in Theresa May’s Article 50 extension is illegal, and will be challenged in the courts (emphases mine):
‘It is a fundamental principle of UK constitutional law that the Government may not use its powers, including its powers to make international agreements, to frustrate the intention of Parliament. Parliament’s intention is to be found, and is only to be found, in the laws it makes. Resolutions of the House of Commons may sometimes be politically important, but they are of no legal effect unless an Act of Parliament expressly gives them legal effect.
‘The intention of Parliament is, and remains still, that the UK must leave the EU. This is clear from the legislation to trigger Article 50 (the EU Notification of Withdrawal Act 2017), in which Parliament referred to and declared “the United Kingdom’s intention to withdraw from the EU”. The EU Withdrawal Act 2018 gives effect to the decision to withdraw by repeatedly referring to “exit day”.
‘The Withdrawal Act expressly states: “The European Communities Act 1972 is repealed on exit day”. Parliament originally set that day precisely at March 29 2019, but the Government has purported to extend this by statutory instruments. These can be challenged in the courts.
‘It is essential to note that Parliament’s legal intention for the UK to leave the EU is not conditional upon a withdrawal agreement. While many MPs have said that they do not want the UK to leave without a withdrawal agreement, and the House of Commons has passed a resolution stating this, the law of the United Kingdom is not affected by their protestations. Our law is simply that the UK must leave the EU...
‘It follows that when the Prime Minister exercised her power to act for the UK at the EU Council, she was obliged under our law to refrain from doing anything that would frustrate the intention of Parliament that the UK must leave the EU with or without a withdrawal agreement.‘
These are only Sir Bill’s opening paragraphs but his strong argument is so important I recommend your reading in full by clicking here. He continues by cutting to the quick:
‘These are manifest limitations on the Prime Minister’s competence. They concern rules of UK internal constitutional law of fundamental importance. In these circumstances, I believe that it would be impossible for the Prime Minister, acting lawfully under UK law, to accept an extension of the kind proposed. When I called on her to resign last week in the House of Commons, I reminded her that she had promised over 100 times not to extend exit day.
‘For the Prime Minister to agree to such an extension in these circumstances is to knowingly use her power in a way that she herself believes would risk frustrating Parliament’s intention that the UK must leave the EU. This is legally beyond the pale!’
Sir Bill concludes his well-grounded case:
‘We have been told by the Prime Minister that “we will not have truly left the European Union if we are not in control of our own laws”. The repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 achieves that control as the law of the land. The Withdrawal Agreement drives a coach and horses through the constitutional status of Northern Ireland and undermines the repeal of that 1972 Act.
‘This is a political betrayal of the referendum vote in June 2016.That vote was expressly given by Parliament under the Referendum Act 2015 to the people and became the law of the land. It cannot be taken back by mere resolutions of the Commons nor by unlawful statutory instruments. Indeed, on Friday evening, five minutes before the deadline on the statutory instrument for the regulations to confer the extension to October 31, I tabled a block against the regulations which continues until the House returns.’
Unity News Network has been reporting extensively on the court case undertaken by Robin Tilbrook of The English Democrats over what he believes has been the illegal extension of Article. They write in Sir Bill Cash in STUNNING confirmation of Article 50 ILLEGALITY!!! that Mr Tilbrook and certain leading legal minds believe that Britain has, in law, already exited the EU on the 29th of March.
A thought-provoking British video being aired far over ‘the Pond’…Note also there are strong grounds upon which a fourth vote on the PM’s ‘deal’ or Withdrawal Agreement necessitates new, legal authorisation!
Has Britain already Brexited? According to some lawyers, yes. Here’s how they lay it out. My opinion? According to the law, I think they are right. I also think that will make no difference to the case. Britain’s politicians have been hanging about in Brussels too much to understand that all are under the law. […]

Thank you to ‘Jean F’ for sending this useful opinion which may help us understand the complexity of the PM’s attempt to change the law over our leaving the EU this Friday. It is offered purely for information purposes only as I’m unable to speak for or endorse its content. It may, however, answer Nicholas comments to NI-Eire P/Update #5:
Within the Brexit Central briefing received this morning I read this (emphasis mine):
‘Of course, one of the scare stories that has repeatedly been propagated by anti-Brexit voices about the prospect of a no-deal Brexit is that it would demand a hard border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. So it was intriguing to read yesterday not only that Taosieach Leo Varadkar is now confident of keeping border invisible in ‘No-deal’ Brexit, a special arrangement can be found to keep the border in Ireland invisible in such a scenario but also that the EU is now saying they are “working very closely with Irish authorities to try and perform controls away from border”.
‘All of which prompts the question as to why such arrangements could not have been on the agenda all along, rather than the EU insisting on the potentially suffocating Irish backstop being included in the Withdrawal Agreement. Do we think the EU has been negotiating in bad faith?’
All as blogged in detail back in December, just before Christmas..!
In 10 years on and freedom of speech is now in handcuffs I covered the example of Christophobia exhibited in the dubious arrest in February of street preacher Olewole Ilesanme outside Southgate tube station. The police have changed their story and so Christian Concern has issued this press release about his case:
There is so much to update you on as the story of street preacher Oluwole continues to develop, and we want to ask if you will pray with us. Over the past week:
- The police have changed their story on Olu’s de-arrest
- MP Theresa Villiers has challenged the Government over his arrest
- Baroness Cox has raised questions on his arrest in the House of Lords
- His story has been covered in The Spectator, Fox News, Premier, Faithwire and by Rod Liddle in The Sunday Times
- Thanks to your support, Oluwole’s lawyer has written a pre-action letter to the police commissioner.
Tomorrow (Thursday 21 March) Oluwole’s amazing journey since the video of his arrest went viral will continue at London City Hall. From 10am, London Assembly members will address three questions to London Mayor Sadiq Khan. Read the questions that will be put to the Mayor of London.
This represents an important opportunity to ask the man responsible for the police in London about the treatment of Christian street preachers on our capital’s streets. The whole session will be live-streamed and we plan to provide coverage throughout the day on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
In a country that used to lead the way in upholding Christian freedoms, freedom of speech is now under attack.
We’ve reached an important moment.
Will you join with Christians across the world to pray for street preacher Oluwole and our team?
If you can, please pray:
- For street preacher Oluwole and that he will be protected and encouraged
- For Sadiq Khan that he will recognise the need to do more to protect Christian freedoms in London
- For the London Assembly members who have shown such an interest in this case
- That our police force will do more to protect Christian street preachers
- For our legal team as they support Oluwole through the next steps
- That our petition calling on the Home Secretary to do more to protect freedom of speech on our streets will be shared widely and signed by many.
