Already in 2000: violence as a result of “social tensions” in Britain

Sword attack on Cheltenham politicians: a product of social tensions in Britain.

This article is another victim story and shows the emotional turmoil the dramas can create. It was pointed out to me by Peter Oakes, “veteran victim” who actually accompanied the victim’s wife in the Court.

It proves very simply that “the system” doesn’t work: where money people make money out of money and the financial economy destroys the real one.

These are the “plattforms” for social tension:

  • between the “Establishment” and the “free economy”
  • those who can earn a living and those who can’t (young, sick and elderly people)
  • the “out for profit” and the “not for profit” organisations.

And as the bankers tighten the belts with politicians UNABLE to question them, the trend continues downward:

  • towards more and more centralised control via money
  • widening the gap between rich and poor
  • the use of money as a ‘tool for control’ rather than a ‘medium of exchange’…

As long as banks get away with being bailed out, it is time politicians assumed the position of the government as Compensator of Last Resort!

By the way: Wikipedia reports that Robert Ashman was a “deranged constituent”…

One Response to Already in 2000: violence as a result of “social tensions” in Britain

  1. Colin Peters says:

    At the time in question, both myself and Norman Scarth communicated with Robert Ashman, Norman actually attending the court hearing.
    I also spoke with Robert’s wife over the phone and learnt of the background to it all.

    Apparently Robert, a very articulate and normal-in-every way type of chap had suffered unmercifully at the hands of ruthless lawyers just like so many of us have done and in seeking justice for himself had approached all of the regulatory bodies only to get the regular runaround from them.

    Just like so many of us, all he experienced was one cover up after another and in his fight for justice Robert was given a ray of hope by his Member of Parliament who promised to intervene/investigate.

    When his MP backed down on his promise Robert flipped, armed himself with a Samurai sword, and the rest is history.

    As I informed Robert at that time, no way in this world could I condone what he had done but, I could understand the tensions and the stresses and strains and the rage and the anger and frustrations that had driven him to it.

    There but for the Grace of God go so many of us.

    Robert has been free for quite a while now but I have not tried to contact him again because from what I have seen of the ‘system’, the price of his freedom might well be his silence.

    At the end of the day, the truth is that because of the unrestrained antics of lawyers an innocent man died.
