A viral video by Peter Stefanovic calling out the ‘govt trying to restrict our right to protest through the back door’ and to back the fatal motion tabled by Baroness Jenny Jones to stop Rishi Sunak’s Government.
Jones lambasted the “cheating, nasty” government for attempting to “sneak” an amendment to the Public Order Bill through the “back door”.
Green party peer Baroness Jenny Jones has tabled a fatal motion to prevent the government from using ministerial decree to override a vote in the House of Lords.
Carol Voderman has shared the petition.
Now James O’Brien has picked up on Peter’s great work.
He tweeted: “Huge thanks to @mrjamesob & @LBC for stepping up to report the fatal motion tabled by @GreenJennyJones to stop the Government restricting our right to protest via an outrageous and unprecedented abuse of power. Thanks also for the shout out on my video!”
Baroness Jones told James O’Brien: “Essentially the government is trying to bring in something that the House of Lords has already thrown out. Now, the House of Lords is not a radical structure, it’s quite a conservative place and yet we threw out a particular amendment, which was about disruption.
“The government wanted a definition which was, ‘anything more than minor’, which could be absolutely anything.”
The vial video was shared again and he wrote :🚨13June – note the date🚨
As @BBCNews remains shamelessly SILENT a make or break moment for parliamentary democracy will take place next week as Government attempts to restrict our right to protest through the back door. Shocking silence from UK media”
Maybe they are finally paying attention as Fatal motion in the Lords is trending on Twitter.
