Court Appearances & My Wrongful Arrest

So I arrived back in London on Monday 18th March 2019, I had my bail restrictions lifted by The Met Police as I was due to appear in court the following morning. I visited my solicitor as was arranged, I then met up with friends and visited Parliament Square, where I was almost immediately surrounded by 8-9 Met Police officers who were attempting to arrest me because they assumed I was in breach of my bail conditions, I argued the point for around 30 mins as I knew I was indeed allowed back in London, after radioing through they confirmed I hadn’t breached my conditions.
The next morning I appeared in court to enter my plea in relation to the 3 charges against me. It was a lively hearing, one packed to the rafters with both supporters and the mainstream media. At times there was heckling from the Public Gallery and they did break out into chanting ‘Soubry Is A Nazi’ I entered my plea which was ‘Not Guilty’ and I was re-bailed to appear for my trial on July 19th and July 22nd. I was then told I had to leave the geographical vicinity of the M25 within 2 hours and I was escorted to the train station by 3 Met Police officers.

On Wednesday 20th March 2019 I then appeared at Manchester & Salford Magistrates to answer more charges, I represented myself in the hearing and I’m pleased to say that I managed to get some of my restrictions lifted. 
Then yesterday I went to Stretford Police station to sign on as usual on a Monday & Friday, when I arrived I was asked to go into a side room, So I refused and asked why. I was then told I would be arrested for breaching my bail conditions, by visiting the Palace of Westminster. So I was taken into custody and I was told that I would appear before the Court in the morning. I was arrested at 12:45PM, at around 19:30PM an officer came into my cell and told me that I would be going home, I was shocked I had previously been told I would be appearing before a Judge in the morning. 

Details of my arrest are below
Offence 1: Arrest by constable for breaking/likely to break bail conditions-this is NOT an offence
Police Station: South Manchester Date 18/03/2019
Greater Manchester Police has decided that no further action will be taken at this time in respect of the offence(s)After consideration of the evidence and other information that is currently available the decision was that;
Grounds No Longer Justified
A decision not to charge may be reconsidered if a review of the decision indicates that it was clearly wrong and should not be allowed to stand.
This notice only applies to the offence(s) specified above. If you are currently on bail to return to the police station in respect of these offence(s) it will not be necessary for you to return. It is important to note that any bail conditions imposed in relation to any other offences will still apply.
The fact that no further action is being taken at this time does not prevent an aggrieved party pursuing criminal proceedings or civil remedy
I feel this is yet another attempt by the powers that be to intimidate me into silence and also to serve as a reminder that they can pretty much operate with immunity. I will be taking the matter further.

    Dear James Goddard and others

    As you have been banned from PayPal (and Facebook), I suggest you should start taking legal action by taking them to small claims court and suing them for political discrimination and defamation causing damage to your reputation.

    Here’s some information on how to take PayPal to small claims court to get your money back.

    Here’s some legislations I wish to show you in relation to freedom of expression.

    Human Rights Act 1998 and European Convention of Human Rights:

    Article 10
    Freedom of expression

    1. Everyone has the right to freedom of expression. This right shall include freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart information and ideas without interference by public authority and regardless of frontiers. This Article shall not prevent States from requiring the licensing of broadcasting, television or cinema enterprises.

    2. The exercise of these freedoms, since it carries with it duties and responsibilities, may be subject to such formalities, conditions, restrictions or penalties as are prescribed by law and are necessary in a democratic society, in the interests of national security, territorial integrity or public safety, for the prevention of disorder or crime, for the protection of health or morals, for the protection of the reputation or rights of others, for preventing the disclosure of information received in confidence, or for maintaining the authority and impartiality of the judiciary.

    Article 11
    Freedom of assembly and association

    1. Everyone has the right to freedom of peaceful assembly and to freedom of association with others, including the right to form and to join trade unions for the protection of his interests.

    2. No restrictions shall be placed on the exercise of these rights other than such as are prescribed by law and are necessary in a democratic society in the interests of national security or public safety, for the prevention of disorder or crime, for the protection of health or morals or for the protection of the rights and freedoms of others. This Article shall not prevent the imposition of lawful restrictions on the exercise of these rights by members of the armed forces, of the police or of the administration of the State.

    Public Order Act 1986

    Section 29J
    Protection of freedom of expression

    Nothing in this Part shall be read or given effect in a way which prohibits or restricts discussion, criticism or expressions of antipathy, dislike, ridicule, insult or abuse of particular religions or the beliefs or practices of their adherents, or of any other belief system or the beliefs or practices of its adherents, or proselytising or urging adherents of a different religion or belief system to cease practising their religion or belief system.

    Section 29JA
    Protection of freedom of expression (sexual orientation)

    In this Part, for the avoidance of doubt, the discussion or criticism of sexual conduct or practices or the urging of persons to refrain from or modify such conduct or practices shall not be taken of itself to be threatening or intended to stir up hatred.

    In this Part, for the avoidance of doubt, any discussion or criticism of marriage which concerns the sex of the parties to marriage shall not be taken of itself to be threatening or intended to stir up hatred.

    Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008

    Section 79
    Abolition of common law offences of blasphemy and blasphemous libel

    (1) The offences of blasphemy and blasphemous libel under the common law of England and Wales are abolished.

    (2) In section 1 of the Criminal Libel Act 1819 (60 Geo. 3 & 1 Geo. 4 c. 8) (orders for seizure of copies of blasphemous or seditious libel) the words “any blasphemous libel, or” are omitted.

    (3) In sections 3 and 4 of the Law of Libel Amendment Act 1888 (c. 64) (privileged matters) the words “blasphemous or” are omitted.

    (4) Subsections (2) and (3) (and the related repeals in Schedule 28) extend to England and Wales only.

    And to cite court rulings in defence of freedom of speech:

    Sunday Times v UK (No 2) [1992] 14 EHRR 123
    DPP v Collins [2006] UKHL 40
    Chambers v DPP [2012] EWHC 2157

    Any form of censorship is considered to be discrimination under Article 14 of the Human Rights Act 1998 and European Convention on Human Rights which states:

    The enjoyment of the rights and freedoms set forth in this Convention shall be secured without discrimination on any ground such as …political or other opinion…

    The ECHR case titled Redfearn v United Kingdom [2012] ECHR 1878 caused Parliament to create legislation where employers can’t dismiss their employees on the grounds of political opinions. The legislation is Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act 2013, Section 13; “Unfair dismissal, Dismissal for political opinions: no qualifying period of employment”.

    Instead of letting the establishment and the corporations go for the damage they done. Fundraise a powerful solicitor and then sue them for political discrimination, I know Paul Golding of Britain First has sued Facebook for political discrimination, hence the reason why they are registered in Northern Ireland. I know Tommy Robinson is suing Facebook and I wish him the best of luck. I’m also aware of Robin Tilbrook taking legal action against the UK government on extending Brexit.

    Please quote the legislations as disclaimer on your website to spread awareness we still have rights which we can use against the corrupt establishment.

    Why I’ve kept myself anonymous because I’m a student solicitor studying law and I’ve been following this cause for a long while and I feel the need to help you out.

    I wish you the best of luck

    PS: Please share this message to spread awareness of the legislations I’ve found.

  2. yes this is the problem they do act with immunity, I am having problems with some not so honest judges at the moment, they should be accountable.
