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

Oy vey (Yiddish: אױ װײ‎) or oy vey ist mir is a Yiddish phrase with the longer version literally meaning "oh woe is me". The long version is basically never said anymore and only shorter versions oy vey and oy gevalt are. Oy gevalt means the same thing. These phrases are mainly used by Ashkenazi Jews and people mocking Jews.

It was originally used as an expression of misfortune, the opposite of mazel tov ("good luck"). But it gradually changed into an expression of astonishment or excitement. For instance, a Jew seeing a half price off sale or any other type of discount on useless yet cheap items would shout, "Oy vey!" Along with excitement toward sales and bargains, the term "oy vey!" can also associate with a negative excitement such as an outrageously overpriced item.

It sometimes is still used in its original negative meaning of "oh woe is me", but only with an added phrase on there for emphasis that it's negative. For instance, "Oy vey! It's like another shoah!" is a common Jewish expression used for a minor inconvenience like stubbing one's toe. It's never used for a major inconvience. Another example is, "Oy vey! That's hate speech!"
