Yesterday, the UK government announced the new coronavirus “Medical martial law” bill, with extraordinary totalitarian powers:
Quote:The bill will enable the police and immigration officers to detain a person, for a limited period, who is, or may be, infectious and to take them to a suitable place to enable screening and assessment.
This means that it gives the authorities a blank cheque to detain any member of the public (even if there’s nothing more than “suspicion”).
This bill will also enable the home secretary to close ports and airports, cancel elections and "restrict or prohibit events and gatherings".
The guidance to the bill reads:
Quote:Maintaining national security capabilities at a time of potential widespread upheaval is critical, and it is necessary to ensure that the powers to vary specific aspects of the regime are available to the government should they be deemed necessary.
Just to be on the safe side, the authorities are immune from prosecuting for handling the “pandemic”.
It is expected that the bill will be rushed through parliament and approved before the end of March.
These powers will last for 2 years.
