Who is Black Lives Mat­ter?

The Wokingham Paper - - VIEWPOINTS -

Re: Coun­cil must take ac­tion on Black Lives Mat­ter ( Wok­ing­ham.To­day, July 2) Would Keith Kerr (KK) and Sharon Har­riot-Kerr (SH-K) please ed­u­cate an ig­no­rant pleb like me. Please can they in­form me of the fol­low­ing in a let­ter to our much-loved Wok­ing­ham Pa­per:

Who are the lead­ers of Black Lives Mat­ter (BLM) and @Black Lives Mat­ter UK (@BLMUK)? Are they UK cit­i­zens?

The US is a for­eign coun­try which still has the death penalty in some states. Will KK and SH-K sup­port the death penalty for all of the of­fi­cers in­volved in the heinous death of Mr Floyd if that US state al­lows it? Ex­e­cu­tion would be a just sen­tence wouldn't it? How could any rea­son­able per­son ob­ject to the death penalty in this case?

Who funds the BLM and @BLMUK? What are their po­lit­i­cal aims and man­i­festos? How is a com­mon pleb able to hold them to ac­count?

In Wok­ing­ham.To­day of Thurs­day, June 11, a Maiden Er­legh Lib Dem bor­ough coun­cil­lor claimed that Lib Dems are “pos­i­tively pro­mot­ing equal­ity”.

There­fore, will KK and SH-K join me in de­mand­ing that the Lib Dems, their na­tional lead­er­ship and other po­lit­i­cal par­ties im­me­di­ately scrap that ves­tige of priv­i­lege and in­equal­ity, the dis­cred­ited and un­elected House of Lords? If other po­lit­i­cal par­ties don't want to join in get­ting rid of their Peers then the Lib Dems could set an ex­am­ple to ev­ery­body by scrap­ping their peers uni­lat­er­ally im­me­di­ately.

I am still wait­ing for a re­ply from the Lib Dems via The Wok­ing­ham Pa­per. The si­lence is deaf­en­ing.

With Lib Dems it seems that words mat­ter more than deeds. Or could it be that they are wed­ded to un­elected priv­i­lege and that change is only for oth­ers?

When a multi-mil­lion­aire rac­ing car driver, who is happy to race his car in coun­tries with de­plorable hu­man rights records, who lives as a tax ex­ile in Monaco, who has just had his Mercedes rac­ing car painted black, the colours of the Nazi Waf­fen SS , who calls for civil un­rest in his home coun­try in the name of BLM and @BLMUK, then we plebs need to be told the truth about th­ese or­gan­i­sa­tions.

Are they re­ally a front for, or have they been in­fil­trated by, hard left Marx­ist guer­ril­las pig­gy­back­ing on the hor­ren­dous death of a man in US po­lice cus­tody? We need the truth.

Per­haps KK and SH-K can't han­dle the truth in a coun­try where, for the mo­ment any­way, we still have free­dom of

speech and thought.
