Dictatorship Britain - more curtailment of freedom of expression

A trader at the Royal Norfolk Show has been punished with a fixed fine penalty of GBP80- for selling T-shirts with a logo which is considered rude about our 'glorious leader' Tony Blair, on the grounds that it might cause alarm or even distress. Gawd, give me strength!

There are a number of other aspects of 'Dictatorship Britain' that I have been planning to write about for a few days, but this relatively minor incident is symptomatic of a real cancer creeping into traditional British notions of liberty; a citizen can no longer say freely what (s)he thinks about our political Leaders, because their paid agents (the police, which we taxpayers and citizens actually pay for) will no longer let us.

So I will risk the full punishment of the law from the dictatorial clique that now rules our lives:
the government, and particularly senior Ministers including the Prime Minister, are all JERKS!


Quite obviously much more serious activities such as those of an elderly woman near Littlehampton, West Sussex cannot be tolerated and deserve punishment.
