British Citizens are NOT Allowed to Leave Their Own Country

The British government has taken yet another step toward a total authoritarian state by making it illegal for British citizens to leave the country.

After four hours of emotion-laden debate, the UK’s House of Commons has approved the measure that prevents citizens from leaving the country without a qualifying excuse. We are told that the measure is meant to curtail the spread of Coronavirus. But the new rules were passed using the precedent of the Public Health Act, which- interestingly was passed in 1984.

Beginning this week, anyone who wishes to leave England must file papers, declaring their reason for leaving. Travelers who leave without a valid reason may be fined several thousand pounds. Authorities have complete discretion in deciding what is a valid reason and what is not. Visiting family abroad may not be a valid reason. Leaving for work may be valid, but only if they consider your work essential. It is a perfect example of a law designed to give the government arbitrary control over a people.

Now, if you think it cannot happen in the US, we urge you to reconsider. The passport system is already a means by which Americans are required to pay and ask permission to leave the country. Make no mistake, you can be detained for any reason, and that has always been the case. But under the current state of fear, there is yet one more excuse at the government’s disposal to stop you, jail you, question you, and hold you — and as long as they say you are a danger for some reason.

The culture war has been on for far longer than most of us realize. As it reached more noticeable levels of intensity in the years leading up to Trump’s run for office, critical differences between the protections for people’s rights in the US and other English-speaking counties started becoming apparent.

The United States is similar in culture and legal precedent to countries like Canada, England, and Australia. But protections for the freedom and dignity of the individual are more heavily enshrined in law in the US because our nation was founded by profreedom rebels from the UK.

Nevertheless, it has been surprising to see freedom of speech and similar rights we hold dear trampled on by the governments of those other countries. People in all of the three countries mentioned have been arrested for posting opinions on sites like Twitter and Facebook. Australians have had their firearms “bought back” by mandate. Last year, an elderly man was dragged out of his home and beaten by police in Canada for not wearing a mask, and in England, anyone who speaks up against the predominantly Muslim child grooming gangs is targeted by the media, jailed, fined, and silenced.

Do not think these types of things have not happened in the United States. They have, and on similar timelines for similar reasons. But they are fewer and further between.

Also, our news media is worse than theirs, similarly bad, but worse.

  1. Could we get Mexico to do that?
    See what happens when you ban guns! You don’t get LESS crime, you get MORE government!

  2. If they need some advice on how to break from the crown we can offer it to them, but they would need guns and sadly they allowed the leftist to take them away. Pity. If we are not careful and vigilant this will be us unless we wake up and boot the leftist out of office and NEVER elect a democrat again.

  3. Why do people allow their GOD GIVEN RIGHTS TO BE TAKEN AWAY…
    I will never allow anyone to TAKE MY GOD GIVEN RIGHTS AWAY, EVEN IF IT MEANS I HAVE TO KILL OR DIE….
    People need to wake the fuck up and realize WE HAVE ALL THE POWER NOT THE GOVERNMENT, if we would stick together and fight back THIS BULLSHIT COULDN’T HAPPEN….

  4. Without question, this Is already taking place in America under the Biden administration. I have called on all of my congressman and senators to start the process of abolishing the destructive Biden administration as is not only our RIGHT but DUTY, under the Declaration of Independence, to do so. I am asking patriotic Americans for help (not financial), to encourage the representatives and form organizations to help our nation in stopping the totalitarian aspects of this destructive administration. It may come to the point that this must be done by force of arms as is our responsibility under the Second Amendment – keep in mind that the Second Amendment is there to protect us from our government (which includes the Supreme Court), which is trying to take our guns so that we cannot protect ourselves from that very same government. And that is dangerous to every citizen whether you are a Democrat or Republican.

  5. Americans used to be able to drive into Canada or Mexico with just a wave and a ‘Hello’ toward the border guards… but now we have to shell out at least a $150 for a temporary PassPort plus a wait of months to years to get it…

  6. What has happened to the UK and the EU ? Lockdowns result in more cases. If you do not like my opinion,
    look at the states and countries that have opened. Was that an accident ? Hong Kong use to be free. The PRC is forcibly giving vaccines. US states that opened up (or never closed) the cases have plummeted.
