Monkeys in Parliament

Members of Parliament can rejoice: The government has won an appeal against single-handed anti-war protestor Brian Haw who had previously argued successfully that an exclusions zone around parliament, within which no visible protests would be allowed, did not apply to him since he had already been a regular feature outside the Houses of Parliament well before that legislation had been introduced. You could say, he had become part of the street furniture of Westminster, and since he did not adopt the livery colours of the war criminals and supporters of the illegal invasion of Iraq on both sides of the house, MPs who had to walk past him on their way to work considered him an eyesore.

This resounding victory for unchallenged authority has removed our "representatives" even further from visible criticism and widened the gap between them and the electorate, most of whom no longer bother going to the polls. Like the three monkeys who close their eyes, ears and mouths they can now enjoy the perks of office at Westminster without ever having to look the consequences of their actions into the eye.

Nonetheless, Brian can take heart that he managed to stand up to authority for a whole five years and they only got rid of him by specifically introducing a legislation in the Serious Crime and Police Act 2005 which was designed to remove him, as had been admitted by those pushing for the new law. And we can all take heart that when a government considers a placard-bearing individual to be a "serious security risk" – as they argued in court – then it is unlikely to last much longer.

Meanwhile the abbreviation for Member of Parliament, MP, has gained a completely new meaning reflecting the ridiculous farce of their presence in the Commons: Monkey in Parliament.

There may be monkeys in Parliament, but at least these monkeys realize when it is time to say no to those who do not wish to assimilate and have the best interest of the country. Peace is only the absence of war. Should the free world always turn a blind eye to terror and genocide? Brain says that he was against the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq because the population has suffered enormously. How foolish! Everyone knows the super majority of the population is doing far better than ever before. I guess he liked seeing innocent people get shredded in wood chippers and women having less rights than sheep. The middle East will forever be turd world nations and will destroy themselves when the revenues from oil finally dry up. Maybe then, Islam will finally reform itself and start being a religion of peace instead a religion of unequal rights and terror?

Oh really? Is your opinion based on what Fox News has been informing you, or have you recently visited Iraq and afghanistan to be so adamant in your claim?

LOL yep we all know now how the foreign troops have been welcomed with open arms, Iraqis are ecstatic to have been 'liberated US-style' from Saddam's regime - as Abu Ghraib has revealed to the world.
Check the link to see how distraught Iraqis were when a British military helicopter was downed in Basra. Am not saying i agree with their actions but it does make you wonder WHY they would react this way:

I think you'll find the western world would be in more of a panic. The Muslim world is backward after all (according ot the general western opinion)therefore will learn to make do without oil in the caves and desertland.. but the western countries being the largest consumers of natural resources, how will they continue? how will they feed their very obese bellies without oil?! Very worrying to say the least.

The damage is now done - war was launced, innocent civilians continue to this day paying the price of invisible WMD's and the VERY visible oil refineries.

BRIAN HAAW

Brian is a sincere man who understood the true meaning of jihad.. He sacrificed and tolerated so much to highlight the crimes and tricks of the people across the road from him.

He held no political preferences and was aware they are all partners in crime. He has particular concern for the suffering of children and all victims of abuse by large companies , goverments and armies.

He is sincere and couragous. Every drop of rain every biting wind, every missed meal along with all the discomfort he endured for years will not be wasted.

It is not his fight alone, he stood in the cold and slept sitting on stools for years for people he never knew.

Often he was unable to speak either due to a silent protest or his sore throat having shouted at the chauffer driven murderers swanning in and out of parliment.

We must remember him and work from his example. He may have been relocated but the crimes and suffering he highlights are still very real. This is not the end but the beginning if we all stand with him.

I cant think of a better, more deserving person to be given a peace award. He should be given the recognition he deserves in this world and the next.

His selfless dedication to support the helpless is shaming to us all. If one man can do so much , what could we all do if we were half the man he is....

I see you have some loud-mouthed, anonymous, but obviously Yank, making stupid comments, as usual. Hey Yank, we the people of the U.K. remember who paid for all those IRA bombs that went off in our country, even if the Monkeys in Parliament have forgotten. I know people in London whose comments on September 11th were "What goes around, comes around". Poor whiney Boy Yank. The world didn't change that day; it simply caught up with America.
