Behind the Magna Carta spin, Britain's 'dictatorship of the 1%' is
taking shape

Paul Mobbs, The Ecologist, 11th June 2015

A consistent pattern is emerging in the UK government's plans and
policies, writes Paul Mobbs: the stripping away of human rights and
freedoms; the detachment of public institutions from democratic
accountability; an increase of the powers of the state; and the
empowerment of corporations at the expense of people. We must act to
preserve our liberties, while we still can.


Go to the article on The Ecologist site -- lots of useful links to
background information.



"We are not for names, nor men, nor titles of Government,
nor are we for this party nor against the other but we are
for justice and mercy and truth and peace and true freedom,
that these may be exalted in our nation, and that goodness,
righteousness, meekness, temperance, peace and unity with
God, and with one another, that these things may abound."
(Edward Burrough, 1659 - from 'Quaker Faith and Practice')
