Spying is on the peaceful public is not a left-wing/right-wing issue. Stalinist, Maoist and Marxist Communists do it. Nationalist socialists did it. Absolute monarchies do it.

I keep coming to the fact I am more libertarian but also centre right, I detest totalitarianism, that takes precident over economics.

I was beginning to think an absolute monarchy is a possible answer, but then her son can be a bit odd.

But then she can block things if she really insisted, perhaps we do need to go to the top?
