Was I wrong?

A fellow Christian who is an MP has emailed me suggesting that it is unchristian of me to call for the ‘summary execution of political opponents’.

Just to make it crystal clear, I am not actually calling for the ‘summary’ execution of traitors. Everyone deserves a fair trial, but trials for this must be arranged. I am not a member of any political party. This should not be a party political issue, even for Labour Party members who were somehow unaware of what their leadership was doing.

Am I wrong to call for the death penalty for convicted traitors? Is life imprisonment for treason on such a scale enough? The death penalty specifically for treason was only ended in 1998. With hindsight, a good move by Blair or whoever it was that instigated the change on his behalf. Before 1814, the punishment was even more horrible/appropriate (delete as necessary): the criminal was hung, drawn and quartered.

William Joyce (Lord Haw Haw) was the last person hung in Britain for treason, in 1946. His propaganda crimes were almost nothing compared to New Labour flooding the UK with immigrants in order to change the whole fabric of society. This is treason on an absolutely massive scale.

It seems that people don’t view treason with the seriousness it deserves. This may be due to us being used to having Brussels tell us what to do, or seeing Muslims waving placards calling for death to Britain, yet aren’t even arrested for treason.

So what is just recompense for treason on the scale outlined by Andrew Neather, the former adviser to Tony Blair, Jack Straw and David Blunket? Life imprisonment or hanging? Should a Christian be against the death penalty? I am generally, but these crimes are so great that I think they merit special attention.

These criminals must be brought to trial. What is at stake is the viability of Britain’s future as a civilised and free country worth living in.

    ‘A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.’

    Marcus Tullius Cicero – (106-43 BC) Roman Statesman, Philosopher and Orator

    Arrest them, try them, if convicted hang them. Or shoot them, not bothered which. Give me the gun, I’ll do it.

    I distrust the state and the justice system too much to wish them to have that power again, for anything.

    EV,

    Thank you for that quote. A murderer is indeed less to fear.

    Jim,

    That’s one reason I am against the death penalty for other crimes. Come on, let’s just make an exception for this bunch.
