A man has been arrested for making a Mandela joke: Welcome to Police State Britain!

This is absolutely ridiculous!!!! Read on….

A joke which compared Nelson Mandela’s long time in passing to a slow-to-shut-down computer resulted in a Staffordshire man being arrested by police, finger-printed, DNA-swabbed and detained for eight hours—growing evidence of the police state into which modern Britain is turning!

Neil Phillips, who runs the Crumbs sandwich shop in Rugeley, also had his computer seized for three weeks after making the joke on a forum!

Mr Phillips was arrested at his home on September 10 and was taken to a police station where he was quizzed about the postings on the Rugeley Soap Box website.

He said: “It was an awful experience. I was fingerprinted, they took DNA and my computer. It was a couple of jokes, Bernard Manning type. There was no hatred.”

“You can question the taste, but they’re not hateful. I told the police they got plenty of ‘likes’. What happened to freedom of speech?”

“I think they over-reacted massively. Those jokes are ‘out there’, anyway.”

“When they took my computer, I thought, ‘what the hell are they looking for?’ To be questioned would have been over the top, never mind arrested.”

“They are jokes that I cut-and-pasted,” insisted Mr Phillips.

“I didn’t make them up and I didn’t put them on a public site. You have to sign-up and join. It’s turning into the thought police – you can’t do this, you can’t do that.”

After being BAILED Mr Phillips was finally informed by police that there “would be no further action based on CPS decision of there being insufficient evidence to support a prosecution.”

The arrest was the result of a complaint made by a local Liberal Democrat councillor, Tim Jones.

Apparently he was so “incensed” by these jokes that he called in the police!

Great Britain is fast becoming a sick society, choked by fascist political correctness where ordinary folk are persecuted and suffer in silence because no one out there is geared up to help them!

The low-life cretins behind this move should be absolutely
ashamed of their actions.

    Dear British Police, How many of the following protesters were arrested and held in custody:

  2. As expected, the media has gone into overdrive with endless eulogies and hero-worship for this, admittedly, remarkable man.

    This bit here is not to sing his praises, but to give you the other side of the long and turbulent story of Nelson Mandela.

    It will be in bite size format, to avoid a long, nauseating focus on this man.

    Nelson Mandela spent 27 years in prison because he was found guilty of 196 acts of terrorism.

    Nelson Mandela was a communist (as several historical photos elsewhere on the web will show), who was happy and open about his communist leanings.

    Nelson Mandela actually founded the terrorist wing of the ANC/South African Communist Party, the “UmKhonto we Sizwe” (MK).

    The MK killed women and children, and committed numerous terrorist atrocities, including, Church Street West, Pretoria, on the 20 May 1983, Amanzimtoti Shopping complex KZN, 23 December 1985, Krugersdorp Magistrate’s Court, 17 March 1988, Durban Pick ‘n Pay shopping complex, 1 September 1986, Pretoria Sterland movie complex 16 April 1988, Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court, 20 May 1987 and Roodepoort Standard Bank 3 June, 1988.

    Nelson Mandela was happy to hobnob with many of the world’s dictators and tyrants, including Colonel Gaddafi, Fidel Castro, Robert Mugabe and the leaders of IRA/Sinn Fein.

    President Botha told Mandela way back in 1985 that he could be released from prison as long as he renounced violence: HE REFUSED!

    Mandela was no friend of white people, no matter how the media tries to spin it.

    Only several years ago, Mandela was filmed singing a song about killing white people with fellow black racists, again using the black power/communist salute he is famed for.

    Although Mandela personally did not kill anybody, and never set off any bombs, or even shoot a gun in anger, he certainly had the intention to do so and the organisation which he founded – the ANC’s terrorist wing, the MK – most certainly did kill people.

    Several can admire Mandela’s loyalty and dedication to his own people, but we must abhor his apparent racism, terrorist activities, and his political legacy.

    Mandela inherited a stable, law-abiding, prosperous, economically impressive, agriculturally self-sufficient, corruption free nation, and turned it into a turbulent, lawless, violent, murder-prone, economically stagnant, corrupt third world mess.

    His reign as president of South Africa was a failure, despite the plaudits of the mass media.

    So there you have it, Nelson Mandela: terrorist, racist, communist, IRA supporter and failed politician!

    Our thoughts should also be with the 68,000 white victims of the ANC genocide in South Africa, men women and children – it is to them that we ought to say as well, rest in peace.

    Unlike other writings here on the web, am not interested in being “fashionable”, and joining in the false media-generated chorus of Mandela hero-worship !!!
