UK arrested Tommy Robinson for reporting child-rape gangs that the government caters to. The UK banned reporting of his arrest, denied him a lawyer, and is trying to have him assassinated in prison. Regardless of how you feel about his views, this is a totalitarian government.
Tommy Robinson isn't the first to that the UK has jailed after a secret trial. Melanie Shaw tried to expose child abuse in a Nottinghamshire kids home -- it wasn't foreigners doing the molesting, but many members of the UK's parliament. The government kidnapped her child and permanently took it away. Police from 3 forces have treated her like a terrorist and themselves broken the law. Police even constantly come by to rob her phone and money. She was tried in a case so secret the court staff had no knowledge of it. Her lawyer, like Tommy's, wasn't present. She has been held for over 2 years in Peterborough Prison. read, read
Ancients-Moderns conflict in Freemasonry
The Ancients-Moderns conflict in Freemasonry refers to a period in freemasonry during the 1700s, particularly pertaining to themes of religion, culture and metapolitics in the British Isles, where there existed a Premier Grand Lodge of England and Antient Grand Lodge of England. While caution should be made when it comes to over generalisations as elements were shared by both groups; the "Moderns" were more rationalist and deist in basis and were unambiously alligned with the newly enthroned Hanovarian monarchy and the Whig government (especially under Robert Walpole), while the "Antients" were more esoteric in basis, focusing on the Rosicrucian-Hermetic mystical tradition and some were sympathetic to the exiled Jacobite Stuart monarchy. The dispute officially came to an end in 1813 as the two reconciled and merged as the United Grand Lodge of England (incidentally a few years after the death of Henry Benedict Stuart).
