"support for DNA in policing and the role of CCTV ... 'casual' attitude towards civil liberties"
There is nothing so personal as DNA and Labour abused the process by retaining the data of people not charged / not convicted which highlights Labours attitude towards privacy.
CCTV is another abuse of privacy: the public is entitled to go about it's business without being spied on by faceless government people. I read a few months ago that few actual crimes were solved by the deployment of cameras.
Even the police are blasé about cameras, witness the assault on the woman in a Wiltshire police station by a Plod who obviously knew he was on camera. If it didn't prevent that crime (he was convicted) why would the Home Office think that the public be deterred?
Britain is a shadow of it's former self with government treating the population like children who are incapable of living their own lives without Big Brother (and Plod) telling them what and where they can do it, searching them contrary to law.
Labour, in 10 years of authoritarian rule, did more than any government to diminish liberty in Britain.
I live, voluntarily, in an 'authoritarian' country and I enjoy more freedom than any British resident. The British government has it's fingers and eyes in many more aspects of an individuals life than does the government under which I choose to live.
I can take pictures of almost anything other than pure military; I have never, ever, in 19 years been asked to identify myself; I have never, ever been searched (except by Customs and airport security) and the CCTV cameras than are present are used for traffic control (except in senior governmental areas of Ha Noi).
Labour also further diminished privacy by inter-linking databases so even very low levels of governments could access excessive personal data. Canada, on the other hand, has compartmentalised data so that only data needed for a government department's function is available and all other data is unlinked and held separate in other databases.
So Labour cannot claim anything other than the abuse of the British citizens privacy.
