My lawyer just called .
‘I have bad news .
The Judge has ruled against us.
Reasons later. ‘
One would think a Senior Judge could give the reasons now. But as has been true from the beginning of this case , the ‘talking down’ —-has been extraordinary.
No glory , no individual rights or freedom.
In true arrogant fashion Individual Rights and Freedoms Falls On The Sword Of The State knows best!!!
The ordinary citizens’ cynicism in the system that I said will be invalidated by our “Justice “ System has been confirmed.
I had held out hope that the country my place , Newfoundland and Labrador, joined in 1949 when I was seven years old , would uphold the traditions of the Magna Carta —of Judeao-Christian morality .
Shakespeare’s Play , Hamlet , comes readily to mind ——-
‘Something Rotten In the State of Denmark—- ‘
Marcellus, the guard to Hamlet, senses in the mysterious happenings with the Danish Royalty , that things are amiss, foul!!
And Four Centuries later our realty gives new life to the play—-
My lawyer asked , do I appeal?
I said , absolutely yes , if we can!
Because in Hamlet there is also this:
Polonius , King Claudius ‘s chief minister giving advice to his son , Laertes , on his departure to France :
‘—————This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.————-‘.
