The Tories, Adolf Hitler and the Secret Courts

One of the most grotesque and illiberal piece of legislation that the Tories and their Lib Dem enablers passed in the last parliament was a law providing for secret courts to try cases involving national security. These courts are Kafka-esque travesties of justice, where the defendant may not the evidence against him, or who his accuser is, or even the precise charges against him if this is felt to be sensitive information, which would be harmful to national security if divulged. They are also to be closed to the public and the press for the same reasons.

I’ve blogged before on how these courts resemble the perverted system of justice under the Third Reich and Soviet Russia. The Nazis set up a system of Special Courts from March 1933 onwards. These were to try political crimes without the use of juries. In 1934, the following year, Adolf and his fellow stormtroopers set up People’s Courts to try cases of treason. These did have juries, but they were drawn from the Nazi party.

Cameron and the Tories are a real threat to British democracy and traditional British freedom. They should be thrown out of power for good before it’s too late.
