Britain’s Decline Continues: Jury Decides That Threat Of Global Warming Justifies Breaking The Law

Our British cousins are living in a country that is rapidly becoming a bad movie: one part Mad Max, one part 1984, and one part Idiocracy.

In other words, what was once the greatest nation on earth is in a spiral downward that appears to be growing ever faster. One area in particular where Britain is coming apart at the seams is respect for the “rule of law.” It no longer truly exists in Britain.

Their government regularly sides with criminals over their victims, constantly spies on the citizenry with cameras, is allowing the country to be over-run with unassimilated, radical Islamist immigrants who are allowed to live under Sharia law in places, and now the court system is officially sanctioning vandalism if it’s aimed against non-politically correct opponents[1],

The threat of global warming is so great that campaigners were justified in causing more than :£35,000 worth of damage to a coal-fired power station, a jury decided yesterday. In a verdict that will have shocked ministers and energy companies the jury at Maidstone Crown Court cleared six Greenpeace activists of criminal damage.

Jurors accepted defence arguments that the six had a “lawful excuse” to damage property at Kingsnorth power station in Kent to prevent even greater damage caused by climate change. The defence of “lawful excuse” under the Criminal Damage Act 1971 allows damage to be caused to property to prevent even greater damage – such as breaking down the door of a burning house to tackle a fire.

The not-guilty verdict, delivered after two days and greeted with cheers in the courtroom, raises the stakes for the most pressing issue on Britain’s green agenda and could encourage further direct action.

Kingsnorth was the centre for mass protests by climate camp activists last month. Last year, three protesters managed to paint Gordon Brown’s name on the plant’s chimney. Their handi-work cost :£35,000 to remove.

So, if you’re a left-wing moron, you are now allowed to vandalize other people’s property based on what now appears to be a non-existent threat that’s supposed to materialize 100 years in the future.

That’s the state of justice in Britain; God help them all.
