It is hard to keep up with all of the authoritarian crap being spawned by New Labour. SpyBlog has found another, the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Bill which gives the Home Secretary the power to revoke the british citizenship of anybody that he chooses, for whatever reason he chooses.It's not quite anyone, it's anyone that can have other citizenship. So I'd be safe, but anyone with the potential to claim citizenship elsewhere could have it removed. Like someone born to Japanese parents in Britain and lived here all their life, just for example.
Why? How does this help us? If it was someone that moved here as an adult, then, well, perhaps. But as drafted it's people born here. So much for civic nationalism. They want to control everything don't they? Gah!
