Lady Magnon and I have been wondering about the aims of the BLM movement for some time; now we have the official answer.
1. Abolish the Police: Everyone needs the police at some time or other, regardless of what colour your skin may be. What would black families do if they discovered a white burglar in their home at night; make him a cup of tea, and tell him not to be a naughty boy? Life without some national force of law and order would obviously end in chaos.
2. Smash Capitalism: The only political alternative to Capitalism is Communism, and if you think Internment Camps, Gulags, etc (simply for believing the wrong things), are an improvement on the way we do things in The Liberal West, then I can only think of you as totally bizarre. Capitalism creates wealth, provides employment, and develops an environment that is good for all citizens. It has also been proven to be successful; Communism has always failed.
3. Close all Prisons: I can understand all criminals wanting this, they quite naturally wish to be free to commit their crimes unhindered by police, and without the threat of internment. But would it really be in the national interest to have all our criminals wandering the streets? BLM didn't specify, but maybe they are suggesting some alternative local form of punishment such as The Stocks, or a Ball and Chain instead.
I believe that George Floyd had been imprisoned five times for his crimes, before being publically murdered by the US Cops. I can understand the call for no police and no prisons on HIS behalf, but for the rest of us I think it's preferable to retain both; as well as a strong economy.
It appears that the BLM movement (@BLMUK) has become a White-hating, Cop-hating, bunch of extreme left wing career criminals. I can see no other explanation for their manifesto. No mention is made of 'equality'.
p.s. Oh, and while I'm at it, I can assure you that Boris's answer to all three demands will be a very definite....... NO!
