'Police State' Britain - serial liberty-taker strikes again

(Please see UPDATE at end)

Soon to disappear ('ex'-communist) Home Secretary John Reid issues yet another headline-grabbing plan to diminish our liberties, in the name of 'protecting' us. I think the word 'protection' as he uses it has been gleaned from movies about the Mafia!

I hope enough voters will remember what attitude their own MPs have taken toward these attempts at increasing state control over our lives during the past ten years when it comes to the next election, and will react by 'rewarding' them accordingly!

UPDATE: (Sunday 10JUN07 08.30 BST) SpyBlog has launched a new sub-blog to monitor the government's latest controversial Counterterrorism Legislation proposals - this is likely to be another useful resource provided by whoever is behind this blog for those who (like me) are deeply alarmed by the sinister quasi-totalitarian trend of government in the UK.
