Whatever our political differences most of us are reasonable people. We all know that there are lines that should not be crossed and one of those lines is endangering the truly innocent, such as a political opponent’s children. This is one of the reasons why this blog has consistently called for a political solution for the UK’s serious Islam problems and a judicial solution to those who appease Islam. I am adamantly opposed to ‘mob rule’ or ‘gangs of angry men with pitchforks’ as I know that at the end of that road lie the horrors of pogroms with innocent children suffering harm merely because of who their families are or what deity or political path their family follows.
Unfortunately there are some people who fail to comprehend that there is a moral line that should not be crossed no matter how much we may disagree with their politics. One of those people who have crossed that line is a solicitor called Ian McLoone of Taylor Walton Solicitors in Luton, Bedfordshire. What McLoone did was to publicise the location of the wife, children and other family members of Mr Tommy Robinson of the PEGIDA group and former founding member of the English Defence League, thereby putting them in clear and present danger of attack or of being murdered by Islamic radicals. This is a shameful way to behave and not something that we should expect of an educated person. It’s the sort of behaviour you expect from some idiotic student lefty or some unemployable chav with a grudge, not a solicitor. As the YouTube commentator Paula of ‘Plain Talk With Paula’ said when we are speaking of Islamic radicals we are not dealing normal people but instead people who would think nothing of killing children in order to hurt an opponent of Islam. Paula also made the valid point that if McLoone sees no problem with putting information like this into the public arena then how safe are his clients data? Personally I would not trust a member of a profession who leaked information like this as I’d be worried that my own data would also not be safe.
What McLoone did was outrageous as well as dangerous to Mr Robinson’s wife and children and is not in my view a morally valid way of dealing with a political opponent, especially one such as Mr Robinson who has been the subject of a multitude of death threats from Muslims and their supporters. McLoone crossed a line that should not have been crossed and by doing so has endangered the lives of Mr Robinson’s family. What McLoone did is a world away from anything that could be described as reasonable behaviour. It’s one thing to publicise a business address or the work address of some objectionable politician as part of a peaceful political campaign, something this blog itself does, but it is something quite different to publicise their home address. Many counterjihad activists do know the home addresses of opponents but we would not dream of knowingly putting this data in the public realm because we are mostly intelligent enough to know that although we may be reasonable people, there are others out there who are not in any way reasonable and who may do harm to others. This is especially true if there are children at the address or if the person knowingly discloses the information whilst being aware that this information may be used by Jihadists. I don’t think it’s right to put Mr Robinson’s children at risk and others also agree with me on that.
McLoone has behaved disgracefully and his behaviour is unworthy of a solicitor. At the very least McLoone needs to be disciplined by the Law Society for the encouragement he has given to Islamic psychopaths to target Mr Robinson’s family, a shocking breach of data protection protocols and for bringing his law practise and his profession into disrepute. I hope that Mr Robinson and his representatives put in a complaint to the Law Society over this because quite frankly McLoone’s behaviour is beyond the pale.
McLoone’s reprehensible, dangerous, morality-free and appalling actions show us just what sort of enemy we are all fighting against. McLoone is also the sort of enemy who is alleged to be fighting alongside the very people who follow ideologies that wish the rest of us dead or in chains and who have no moral qualms about endangering or harming children in the pursuit of their political and religious goals.
Today we have seen Mr Robinson’s family put in danger of attack by jihadi savages because of McLoone’s actions, tomorrow it could be your children or mine. McLoone’s actions are unacceptable and both he and his professional governing body need to be made aware of that.
