Barnsby to Prime Minister Gordon Brown

August 9, 2009

Dear Gordon Brown

The fact that you are on vacation and delegated control of Great Britain to whichever fellow Torturer or Nuclear Maniac Harriett Harman, Lord Mandelson or Allan Johnson shows your   complete inability to comprehend the gravity of the present world situation. You should immediately recall Parliament, although that is probably beyond your provenance now – the Speaker of the House of Commons should call Parliament and you would be at once deprived of your liberty unless you immediately renounce the wars you are waging.

An equally important effect of such a renunciation would be that vast sums now spent on war would be available for peaceful purposes and the present Economic Crisis would disappear and we could all sleep safely in our beds at night.

Unless you do this you will be arraigned before the same court that tried the Nazis in 1945 and charged with Crimes against Humanity.

The Barnsby Blog, August 9, 2009


As the folly and wickedness of the wars being waged by Obama and
supported by Brown is recognized anti-war feeling sweeps across the world. On Wednesday the largest EU countries Germany and France united against the war in Iraq. Thirty two US Mayors of the Institute for Policy Studies are mobilising to prevent a war against Iran. And the British Army General in Afghanistan, Sir David Richards says that British involvement in Afghanistan could take 80 years and this echoes the opposition of his predecessor Sir Richard Dan who also opposed the war in Afghanistan. Only madmen can continue to support this slaughter and the Torture and Nuclear madness that is involved.

Fortunately in Wolverhampton we have a Sikh mayor Surjan Singh Duhra who we shall certainly ask if he will join the US Mayors anti-war appeal and what he can do to promote it. This brings me back to Frank Spittle who wrote the original letter which I sent to the Mayor asking him to support Frank’s Send a Vet Scheme which has since blossomed into a campaign to send 2nd World War Vets back to the countries where they served their time.
Everything I have received today has a connection direct or indirect
with Peace and Multiculturalism and pride of place again goes to Frank Spittle. He has produced a portrait of a First World War Communist which has not so far been incorporated into our  History of the Communist Party of Wolverhampton, but which certainly will in future. Chris Knowles is the name and he worked in Frank Spittle’s father’s factory after the war. Chris had been decorated for bravery with the DCM. More about Chris will follow.
