With my little eye a nation that's locking itself into a database and slavery grid, largely thanks to our megalomaniac President, Herr Bliar. There really doesn't seem to be an end to our puppetmaster's ability to come up with ideas to further erode what was once one of our most appreciated qualities of our nation: the upholding of freedom and civil liberties.
Last week it was the introduction (if you can call it that) of an old hat, reheated "package" of "measures" to combat anti-social behaviour, with the very old summary justice idea of on-the-spot fining and more ASBOs.
The ringmaster's latest proposal? To spy on our elected representatives!
Tony Blair is preparing to scrap a 40-year ban on tapping MPs' telephones, despite fierce Cabinet opposition, The Independent on Sunday can reveal.
He is expected to formally announce to the Commons within weeks that MPs can no longer be sure that the security services and others will not intercept their communications.
The article speaks for itself, there's little I can add to it.
Gordon Brown announced plans to introduce a Britain Day and undersigned fool gave him a hesitant thumbs up. What was I on, I wonder with hindsight? Before we celebrate Britishness, there is much, much that needs addressing on these isles.
Perhaps Extreme Unction has something to teach us here:
To go further, the irony is delicious. Brown envies the American celebration of Independence from Britain. So there's the answer! Slaughter the Royal Family, burn down Parliament, and declare a new nation to be formed. We can then have a patriotism day each year to commemorate it. Sadly, it won't be the Union flag people are waving, and Brown will be too busy swinging from the gallows to enjoy it, but hey, I'm up for it!
Hat tip to Extreme Unction.
Tony Blair is a liar (Chicken Yoghurt).
