Winchester: Churchill Quotation Gets Liberty GB Leader Paul Weston Arrested

Paul Weston searched and arrested by the police in Winchester

Yesterday Paul Weston, chairman of the party Liberty GB and candidate in the 22 May European Elections in the South East, has been arrested in Winchester.

At around 2pm Mr Weston was standing on the steps of Winchester Guildhall, addressing the passers-by in the street with a megaphone.

Paul Weston quoting Churchill

He quoted the following excerpt about Islam from the book The River War by Winston Churchill:

How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property – either as a child, a wife, or a concubine – must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the faith: all know how to die but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith."
Reportedly a woman came out of the Guildhall and asked Mr Weston if he had the authorisation to make this speech. When he answered that he didn’t, she told him “It’s disgusting!” and then called the police.

Six or seven officers arrived. They talked with the people standing nearby, asking questions about what had happened. The police had a long discussion with Mr Weston, lasting about 40 minutes.

At about 3pm he was arrested. They searched him, put him in a police van and took him away.

Seems to me this illustrates what Churchill was saying.

There is a need in the land to put fear into the civil servants and police so that they do not do this sort of thing.

Churchill would have liked your concise summation. I agree.

England is dead. Demographics rule the future. America is on the same path, a few paces behind.

Other than a homosexual dalliance he was one of the great conservative minds of the 20th Century. (I know this makes no sense grammatically or semantically...wine-blogging sometimes does that)

I was just watching Weston today doing a speech.

Thought he was a brave man.

So he is imprisoned in Britain for speaking the truth abut the murder cult?

We should not have relations with such an oppressive country.

Can’t do that when you’re not permitted to own firearms.

Homosexual dalliance? I have never heard or read that he was unfaithful to Lady Clementine at all, much less with men.

I seem to remember a reference. I could be wrong.

I’m sure his reputation will survive any uninformed or unintentional slander on my part.

Wait! You’re referencing Winston?

Wine-posting will get one into all sorts of trouble.

Yes, I was writing about Sir Winston, who after all was the second subject of the article.

Amazing isn't it, that quoting the man who saved your sh!##y little country from murderous tyranny 70 years ago now gets you arrested?

Winnie is spinning furiously in his grave, wondering why he bothered.

I think the poster proposed that Enoch Powell had a thing with a man, not that Winston Churchill did.

Enoch Powell is the famous anti-immigration prophet in England, and you can take him or leave him based on what he actually said (which I haven’t studied much) and how his predictions have turned out.

The old memory clicked in and I will not seek out the actual information. It was at Sandhurst where the elite British trained as officers. Young men at about 18 years of age and up.

A case was brought regarding a young man who did not have the money or connections to get into the College. He was awarded a scholarship as a new application to open up the academy to lesser class youth.

There was a sort of initiation ceremony which involved Churchill and his upper crust friends. I have to be fair here. I will certainly delve into the matter with this great innovation, the internet.

I understand there was an enquiry and Churchill sued and won in court over slander. The slander was that sexual indignities were visited on the unfortunate youth as part of the initiation. It has been seen that these asinine practices still continue in certain Universities even in the United States.

Eric Blair was a prophet. He grokked the soul of his country.

Telling the truth will earn you a judgment far harsher than that faced by any liar.
