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
Directorate of Military Intelligence
Directorate of Military Intelligence
The Directorate of Military Intelligence was a department of the British War Office until that was subsumed into the Ministry of Defence in 1964. The Directorate of Military Intelligence (DMI) was at that time absorbed into the Defence Intelligence Staff (DIS), with some functions divested elsewhere in the MoD.
Over its lifetime the Directorate underwent a number of organisational changes, absorbing and shedding sections over time. The first instance of an organisation which would later become the DMI was the Department of Topography & Statistics, formed by Major Thomas Best Jervis, late of the Bombay Engineer Corps, in 1854 in the early stages of the Crimean War.
Two section titles, MI5 and MI6, remain in colloquial use in the United Kingdom and elsewhere to refer to the Security Service and the Secret Intelligence Service, although neither organisation has been titled as such since the late 1920s.
During the First World War the British secret services were divided into numbered sections named Military Intelligence, department number x, abbreviated to MIx such as MI1 for information management. The Branch, Department, Section, and Sub-section numbers varied through the life of the department, however examples include:
- MI1 Codes and cyphers. Later merged with other code-breaking agencies and became Government Code and Cypher School (now known as Government Communications Headquarters or GCHQ
- MI2 Information on Middle and Far East, Scandinavia, USA, USSR, Central and South America.
- MI3 Information on Eastern Europe and the Baltic Provinces (plus USSR, Eastern Europe and Scandinavia after Summer 1941)
