Love Police Charlie Veitch and Danny Shine said everything is OK

Charlie and Danny are the Love Police

Charlie and Danny are waking up London and the world by making videos and interacting with shoppers and tourists and police and officials they meet in the capital of the UK. Charlie and Danny are calling themselves the Love Police and are also using other references to George Orwell's book 1984 as they go about doing their thing in very Orwelllian London, which is full of CCTVs and ridiculous and petty laws.

They are exposing the madness of why the powers-that-be feel that it is OK to film the public but are not happy about the public turning round and filming them back. Charlie and Danny run into problems making a video in a public space at the London train station. Officials object to being on camera and to a woman with a sign saying that everything is OK.

This is a slogan they use a lot as they tell the people they meet that all is well. Charlie and Danny also poke fun at the system and the media by telling people to be afraid and to go and do more shopping and not to be happy because unhappy people will buy more things they don't need.

Charlie and Danny are bringing peace and love to all they meet and encourage hugging. They encounter quite a bit of opposition from the police and capture this on video.

Everything is OK on the Happy Carriage

Why I make the videos - by charlie

The Happy Carriage

In one notable video they take over a carriage of a London Underground train and designate it as the "Happy Carriage." The passengers are asked to smile and be happy and to clap when someone gets on. They are told not to read the depressing news in their papers and that if they want to be unhappy they can go and join any of the other carriages with the miserable people.

The passengers are told that the breaking news is that Swine Flu can be caught by eye contact so don't look at anyone. This is an example of how they mock the media message and allow the public to see for themselves how crazy all this stuff is.

Charlie and Danny are attracting a lot of attention, especially with the use of a megaphone, but in doing this they are making a lot of people a lot happier and at the same time exposing the insane and oppressive system that is being imposed.

They show how people are targeted for expressing their views and that people are not allowed freedom of speech in a public place in a so-called democracy. In one video they show how protestors chanting a slogan over and over and using megaphones are left alone by the police but any individual speakers stating political and philosophical views are not allowed to do so. This is the "Thought Police" in action as they try to clamp down and prevent anyone with original thought voicing it to others on the streets of London.

Charlie and Danny look at the so-called "War on Terror" and the real wars that kill people. They try to report the murders of thousands of people to police but the police don't want to know.

They also film a man who is stopped by a policeman and searched for drugs, as is his car, just because he was running. From this you can assume that running is a suspicious activity in the eyes of some police officers. This is the sort of insanity going on in the police state called a democracy.

Charlie and Danny's videos make brilliant viewing material and examine the subject matter that conspiracy theorists like David Icke and Alex Jones talk about and show how it is a reality. They do so, however, whilst bringing a smile and joy to many they meet and to those who watch their videos.

Charlie takes time out in one video to explain why he is doing all this and how he was not so long ago a person who had not woken up, how he had been a soldier and how he believed the lies the media fed him. But just look at him now!

Charlie and Danny are a real inspiration to us all and I am very glad to have found their site. I am bringing you a selection of their videos here but not too many because it will make the page slow to load. If you like what you see please go and visit their Youtube site.

And remember "Everything is OK!"

Charlie and Danny sound so reminiscent of those lovely, mad sixties days of my youth.

Charlie and Danny are just what this country needs! The UK used to be known for it's plain speaking and common sense/live and let live attitudes with a dash of humour thrown in - not any longer!

Let's go back to being a bunch of harmless eccentrics and drop all this we all have to be the same/think the same nonsense. Life should be fun, not 53 questions about your private life to buy an airline ticket or being sent into the corner for overfilling your wheelie bin.

Sorry about the rant Bard of Ely - Great Hub about a great topic!

Charlie and Danny sounds like a lot of fun. I wish we had them here. Although we have our characters in Hollywood, but I don't think they compare to those guys. Thanks Bard for sharing this. Great hub.

So many people in this country agree that there is something very wrong going on and that our government are turning the UK into a police state. We all need to speak out more to stop this from happening before it's too late. There are some not very nice people in power at the moment, they have to go, the people that live in the UK would like their country back.

Well done Charlie and Danny for not only highlighting what is going wrong with this country but to do so in such a humourous way.

well done charlie & danny... of course their soft approach is probably more to do with trying to get around the tyrannical laws here in the UK... I'm pretty sure that they would rather not have to pussy foot around in order to get their message heared, but just like "The Shitty Rail Tranny Cop Dance Troupe" in Australia, they've realised that a satirical dig at political issues is much easier for the police & the public to handle & thus causes a less aggressive reaction (in most cases).

May i also draw attention to Paul Saville 'The (non)-criminal chalkist (& sociology/criminology student)who was arrested in Bristol for writing "Liberty. The right to question it. The right to ask: Are we free?" and "As the buildings go up, the wages go down." He was charged with criminal damage, but his arrest caused A lot of attention from the public and the Crown Prosecution Service decided (for whatever reasons) to drop the case... i wonder if it was because 'Chalk For Peace' came out in support of him... a group dedicated to en-masse peacful protests which involve hundreds of people chalking slogans of liberty & peace. He later took legal action against the police & was awarded compensation for his unlawful arrest!!!

of course there were those who thought he should have been locked up & the key melted down into handcuffs for his daring to challenge the status quo... oh if ignorance really was bliss...

brilliant hub again, and once more on a topic i was getting around to... damn your quick mind & nimble fingers.... & thanks for the interesting & informative read! xx

Hello the (non) criminal chalkist here...

Just thought I'd keep all updated... after the first and second arrest (back in january and febuary) I was arrested again in october during a protest in Bristol...

what was I arrested for I hear you ask? yep you guessed it... chalk... again.. 5 days after the arrest (which I spent 10 hours in a cell this time) The police dropped all charges. I am again in touch with my solicitor. Currently, the police have offered me £750 for reparations. They have admitted wrongful detention but have not admitted wrongful arrest. they have stated a case law which goes back to 1986 to show that chalk DOES in fact constitute criminal damage.

Anyway, much love happy chalking... I wonder if writing in the snow constitutes criminal damage..

oh yeah, my blog still continues: http://criminalchalkist.blogspot.com

You can follow the blog (its on the top left of the blog)

Keep smiling! Paul :)

Hey Fellas (Charlie and Danny). What about a "Turn the cameras on the (CCTV) Camera's day". Imagine if every cctv camera has an afternoon of being film at the same time. That will stop traffic and create real news to be talked about. How many cameras ? 3000 ? Just an idea.

Never been to london or England but am a part of this Western World which certainly is slowly becoming the most enslaved. I love what you guys are doing, and certainly if anything will work, thinking outside the Box as you are with your approach, will- regarding counteracting this clearly frightened power entity which absolutely does not have the best interest of the people in mind.

This is the best thing I have ever come across in the effort to "wake up" all the useless eaters, as the elite call us. I'm currently residing in the southern part of the US and I am so tired of hearing people talk about useless fodder, NASCAR hunting American idol , while their rights get stripped away and their world slowly gets smaller and smaller. I'm buying a megaphone tonight and going to try to convince some of my friends to spread the love message. And yeah I laughed so hard when he went around askng everyone if they had permission to be there, then said " oh you are a naughty lot of people....We will have to get alt of police" haha man it's just a great idea all around. I onlyhope that I will make a small difference here In the south.

I've watched most if not all of the Everything is OK videos and find that I agree with most of it.

The question is, as a 20 year old student studying in Reading, what on earth can we do to stop the status quo?

I feel like the battle is already lost :(
