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.
