Whatever happened to the country whose Prime Minister swore:Arresting someone for reading a list and ringing a bell? For sitting in a public place with banners and making them feel uncomfortable? There's a great comment in his post:Our way of life is a great deal stronger and will last a greal deal longer than the actions of fanatics.Aren’t our civil liberities an integral part of that way of life?
It’s no exaggeration to say that I feel the same way about Blair and his vile, power-crazed government (Prescott!) as I did about Thatcher in her last days. Just thinking about the whole Brian Haw thing makes me boil with anger.Which pretty well sums up my views. To remove the Tories, we needed an anti-Tory ad-hoc coalition to work around the electoral system. To remove Labour, we'd need the same. The way they're going, we're going to get one.
