Seeking support with an Appeal to the Criminal Cases Review Board to quash the convictions of two Young Innocent Men who were hung in 1952

 

I very recently decided to trace my family history , I was astounded to find out , that I have a second cousin Edward Francis Devlin a Mancunian like myself , who was hung at the age of 22 with another young mancunian aged 21 called Arthur Burns in a Liverpool prison in 1952 per a crime they seemingly didn't commit.

There is a blog page on the net titled Executions of the Day and if anyone is keen, please have a read of the story. It is listed and can be found under the date…

"Political Correctness."

 

My knowledge base is lacking, in relation as to whether or not Internationally, the term being Politically Correct and the absolute madness it fosters here in OZ, is comparable ???

The main aim of  PC here in OZ is to support and initate the demise of anything that is traditionally known as Australian (to pc this constitutes being a racist) in some instances Religion (no Happy Christmas must be happy Holiday because otherwise it's discrimination) No more chairmen or chair…

Dear Lady Lindsay,

in reply to your earlier query about us possibly being "Blood relatives" :-

 

My father Eric's  side were the Devlin clan.

 

Grandfather Joseph Devlin 1912-1964 was the "Devlin"  whose father (also Joseph I believe) migrated to England from Enniskellin (N.Ireland)  around the mid 19 century .

I tracked this line as far (Enniskellin) as possible, but was thwarted by the early 19th century Dublin Registry Office fire as a result of which all the Irish registry records were lost forever.

My mum's side were "Holland " and "Brown"  mainly from the  region of "Mercia" ...very static  for hundreds of years.

 

My sister Susan is the only surviving relative as far as we are both aware.

 

There are at least three other "Devlin" family strands residing in and around St Helens, Merseyside , none of whom are directly related  to me and my sister Susan.

So we are almost certainly not direct blood relations unfortunately.

 

Activism...I came late to community activism ...forced through circumstance really ..now I upset so many Local and Central Government Ministers, Officers etc that many no longer appear to  want to engage with  my representative work on behalf of my neighbourhood.

 

Devlins ....perhaps it is in our genes ..but I suspect "activism"  could read (in my case) bloody minded obstinacy, commitment and sheer determination and I'm always attacking bullying when it appears in any form....Fair minded and sticking up for the little guy is the best way to describe what I try to do every day.

PC is a disaster for plain speakers like myself as we are forced to carefully consider wording everything just in case anybody/grouping is offended by the truth.

 

Freedom of Speech is all but gone along with our constitutional rights as English men and women. Magna Carta  and the Bill of Rights mean little these days , although an increasing number of people are beginning to try and fight back against the widespread "Programming " agendas we see in our schools and universities, communities and the across the whole public sector today.

 

I suppose we all do what we can in our own ways to fight back against the Establishment machine whenever we perceive something is going badly wrong.

 

I hope you are finding it easier over there than we are here in England.

 

Best wishes

 

Jimmy
