Terrorism is not the only fruit
Are you happier? According to Brown here, people *like* CCTV. So since you have so many CCTV cameras everywhere you must be really really happy.
They're putting speakers on them now, soon you will be practically organismically happy, safe in the knowledge that if you are doing any wrong a voice from above can bark at you, 'you there cyclist in red shorts, wait at that traffic light', 'you there with the dog, don't let it pee near than man's tyre'.... joy oh joy.
Jacqui's busy making all sorts of personal choice stuff illegal, because you need protecting from yourself! The ultimate caring is your minister wants to impose her personal choices onto you because she is right and you are wrong. Be well citizen, sing with joy!
DNA lets us catch criminals, some people object because it is being used for minor stuff like catching people who spit. They are of course wrong. People are afraid of people who spit, it is anti social, whereas locking people up for spitting is social. Terrorism is also anti-social, so why do these people support Bin laden spitting?
Then we lock people up for 42 days, without charge, but only under exceptional circumstances. But 28 days was previously the 'exceptional circumstance', and now it becomes the 'norm', prior to that 14 days was the 'exceptional circumstance' but now it's routine, prior to that 3 days was the 'exceptional circumstance' now it's just the exception. Your government is trying it's best to protect you from bad people, who are so bad they need to be locked up, but not so bad that they need to be charged with a crime. Double plus joy citizen!
Soon we will be discussing the 'Return Directive' pushed by Britain. See Britain has a problem with immigrants from Eastern Europe, the newspapers blame 'immigrants' so the minister tries to twist that to 'non EU immigrants' and pushes a directive to detain illegal immigrants for up to 18 months. It won't fix it, but it will make nice headlines. Joy be with you.
It seems to me the ultimate purpose of life and therefore government is to make it's citizens happy. Britain is unhappy, you can argue that if we didn't have these things then Britain would be *more* unhappy, but the rest of the world is doing a lot better without them.
Whose in charge Bin laden or Brown?
