TT Express wages war against Jumbie’s Watch Part 2

Some time ago, the Captain wrote a post on the TT Express waging a censorship ‘war’ on the authors of this blog. On the 15th, I blogged about the Express wiping out comments, and providing tangible evidence of censorship. Today I provide evidence that the Express has clearly targeted ME.

Funnily enough, for the better part of yesterday, only MY posts were missing! Not only that, one of my posts remains deleted by the administrator. That post has no foul language, no defamation to any person (living or dead), nothing in it to warrant censorship. It is as follows:


This mentality is why the Rock remains Third World, and I make no apologies for this statement.

A differently-abled woman, handicapped as it is politically incorrect to say, feels she can flout the law with impunity because she is different. Madness of the first order.

The officer asked if she saw the sign about restricted access.

The officer would have well been within the law to arrest her sorry tail and cart her off in front of a Magistrate. No 'ifs, ands or buts' about it.

The officer's actions were for her own safety. She feels aggrieved that she was being protected from her own stupidity. Had she been knocked down, or run over by a vehicle, I wonder who she would blame then? Herself? Most unlikely. Nope, she'd be looking for a fat or fatter pay-out from the 'Govament'.

That is not to say that some concessions ought not be made for handicapped persons. It is the duty of the Authorities to provide facilities to allow them to live as normally as the rest of us do.

But instead of this woman suing the State to provide access, she instead sues to 'manners' a transit cop for doing her job and protecting said idiot form her own stupidity. Only on Monkey Island.

It is once more clear, that my blog has made persons [1] offended in recognising their own deficiencies [2] offended someone in ‘authority’ [3] challenged Rock culture and made some people rather annoyed [4] all of the afore mentioned.

I’ll just keep writing, and monitoring.
