Do you get it yet ?
In this country, which I was always so proud to be born in, you can be locked up for offenses beyond your capacity to commit, you freedom of movement restricted and your citizenship revoked.
You can be pinned down on a packed tube train, shot in the head for the crime of being a bit foreign looking (the officer in charge cressdia dick, got promoted :( )
We are not heading to a police state, we live in one, only the general incompetence of the gov'muppets protecting us.
Pull your head out of your backside and take a look around, I don't know how old you are, but the idea of ID cards, being required to register prior to peaceful assembly, DPI on comms traffic, detention without trial, removal of double jeopardy(basically one bite at the cherry, either your guilty or not and thats the end, not keep retrying utill you get the *right verdict*) and removal of citizenship are things that growing up here were unimaginable to me.
My parents moved here in the 70's to escape all that shit, now it's right here and it stinks.
Don't take my word for it, read the legislation in all its Orwellian finery
In summary, educate yourself or shut the fuck up.
Troll, because either you really are that stupid or a magnificent troll, for your sake I hope you`re a troll.
