The leader of the Libertarian Party is Andrew Withers. He was elected to that position and even though I had an altercation with his predecessor who made actionable comments about me and took a moronic stance on the EU Referendum, through his lack of understanding of politics, none of that is important, compared to what is happening at the moment.
If that predecessor was in the same sort of trouble as Andrew, I’d join any campaign to help him.
To quote IPJ:
Andrew has now been legally elected and LPUK is a properly constructed legal political party. Andrew is not a bankrupt, nor is he insolvent, yet they are still pursuing [him] to have him banned as a Director.
It is the applicable law, ie the Disqualification of Directors Act that is being used as the catchall to prevent Andrew from holding a position in ANY corporation, (the act describes this as any organisation involving more than 2 people, so includes local darts team, company, multi-edited blog and of course a political party).
BIS have already been proven in court to have lied, [to have] used forged documents and allowed the insolvency service to wind up his former business, on the say so of the French Insolvency Service that wound up his French business illegally, without accounts, on the say so of his former French partner, a friend of Mandelson.
This cock up has become a cover up and is turning into a political show trial.
There are some vitally important points here and they are:
1. Though we may have issues or former issues with people, though we might not see eye to eye on all political points, though we might not see that there is anything in this for us, though we don’t feel excited and agitated about it, Pastor Martin Niemöller’s words are as true today as they were then:
They came first for the Communists,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for me
and by that time no one was left to speak up.
2. There is one other principle which needs to be writ in large letters in our brains:
One sympathizer is worth a thousand party men.
If we fail to add our voices to things like the story of Andrew Withers, then one day they’ll come for us. I’d urge anyone reading this to add his/her voice to the refusal to knuckle down to this divide-and-rule policy of Them and their way of picking off people at random, secure in the knowledge that no one will lift a finger.
Please show me where to sign on this matter. Also, if my business venture gets anywhere, one of the things I’ll be doing is seeing what can be done to help Andrew out – not charity but keeping the bstds off his back for long enough.
