The police state.
In the text it was stated that the last government shelved the plan, and that the new government has reinstated it.
This is not an accident...
All of this crap comes from the REAL government, spearheaded by the unelected politburo in Brussels.
Our so-called government is a puppet administration, it has to enact EU directives within a certain period, there is little room for interpretation, although it is traditional for UK government to "gold plate" these directives. They go all the way and more, unlike the Spanish, for instance who keep their citizens onside by enacting the barest minimum of a given directive. Of course it doesn't stop there, there are regulations and decisions, hundreds of thousands of them, and these have to be enacted without debate, implicitly.
People have a choice if they don't like living in a police state:
1: Leave the country (and the EU), there are very few places left that are free, but think third world.
2: Vote for one of the smaller parties that want out of the EU, although only one party has the complete solution... There are various socialist parties that do not accept the concept of rule by the EU, such as Scargill's socialists, No2EU, and the BNP, however they all believe in a powerful state, that demands obedience. The only choice is the UKIP, which not only wants to withdraw from the EU, it also wants to trim the power of the political elites with the implementation of direct democracy. Lastly there are still some people that think that the elements within the large established parties that disagree with their leaderships will have some influence. I say that that they have not managed any form of influence since it was decided that this was the way the UK was going, which was way back in the 1950's, and so this is a non-solution.
3: A campaign of civil disobedience and escalating violent protest leading to insurrection, as attempted by the IRA, this is easily the worst option, but also the inevitable option, if people don't get off their arses and THINK.
The above is what is really happening, it is up to people to put 2 and 2 together, it is a drip feed dictatorship, and one day the ONLY option will be violence.
Oh, and yes Sarah Bee... The last time I wrote stuff like this, was the last time this publication wittered on about some previous loss of freedom. The response of SB was hilarity... Feel free... You can weep later.
