Putinism in the UK?
I am more than relieved the UK is exiting from the EU.
The desire to pre-empt everything with surveillance cameras, spying on citizens and now apparently giving police the powers of judge, jury and executioner - throwing overboard "innocent until proven guilty" - shows where this nation is sadly headed.
What's next? Pre-emptively imprisoning or hanging citizens? Maybe first pre-emptively "tickling" citizens for a wee bit at the police station's cellar, right? And then "accidentally shooting them" or "forgetting where they were imprisoned", just like it was done behind the iron curtain?
Is the UK, onece admired warrantor of democracy, attempting to overtake Orbán, Putin & Erdogan to win the pseudo-democracy gold medal at the next UN general assembly?
These are frightening developments.
