In civics, minarchism, sometimes called minimal statism or small government, is the view that the size, role and influence of government in a free society should be minimal—only large enough to protect the liberty and property of each individual.
That means that the government should only handle Defence—the protection of individuals from aggressor nations—and Criminal Justice—the protection of individuals from other individuals.
It should come as no surprise that the bloated, interfering, illiberal, wage-stealing, theiving, corrupt piece of shit state that we are all now forced to endure is not my ideal; however, one would have thought that this massive state would—as well as interfering in the minutiae of our lives—at least be able to do the very basics: you would have thought that it would at least be able to protect the individuals under its care from injustice and appropriation by foreign powers.
Ha! I refer you to Kylie Minogue's first big hit. Because, you see, we're part of the EU now and protecting their fat fucking perks and salaries is more important to our politicos than protecting the citizens of this country.
Fair trial campaigners have given warning that there will be miscarriages of justice under European Union plans to hand over Britons tried and convicted in absentia by foreign courts.
Proposals, to be agreed by Baroness Scotland QC, the Attorney-General, at a meeting of EU justice ministers next week, enshrine "procedural" guidelines setting out the circumstances for quick extradition of people convicted in their absence.
A draft text, seen by The Daily Telegraph, notes that existing rules do not "deal consistently with the issue of judgments rendered in absentia". "This diversity complicates the work of the practitioner and hampers judicial co-operation," it states.
Human rights and civil liberties campaigners fear the new EU rules breach a fundamental principle of British justice: that defendants must have their day in court to defend themselves.
Britain does not convict people or hold trials in their absence but many EU countries, including Belgium, France, Spain Greece and Italy, do so on a regular basis.
David Davis, the shadow home secretary, said: "This is another disturbing development from Brussels. Extradition of British nationals to face prison in European jails, based on trials in absentia, would undermine fundamental principles of British justice."
The correct response should, of course, be, "fuck off! Get your grubby, shitty little hands off our citizens." As Timmy says,
No, not having this. It may be true that our Continental cousins are quite happy to bang someone up without hearing their side of the story, without even informing them that a trial is taking place. We do not do this and there is no way we should start to do so…nor allow and facilitate the banging up of Britons by said Continental cousins.
One of the first duties of the State is to protect the rights of the citizenry, this is an obvious breach of said rights.
These people are absolute turds: the EU are totalitarian fucks, and our government are spineless, totalitarian fucks. Welcome to the stealth "harmonisation" of our Common Law with the EU corpus juris. We are going to regret this, you know.
I hate them all so very, very much.
