Spy chief: We risk a police state

big-tomDame Stella Rimington, the former head of MI5, has warned that the fear of terrorism is being exploited by the Government to erode civil liberties and risks creating a police state.

Sorry sweetheart, where the hell have you been for the last 10 years, you are a little bit late, this government has continually eroded our human rights and freedoms, in fact to say eroded is wrong, they have slashed and burned their way through legislation, introducing new laws when none were required. Police have always been able to search anyone that they believed was intending to commit or had committed offences.

In the same way that the judiciary don’t need new powers to imprison serious offenders, they just need to use the powers they have. I am fairly sure that most of the legislation now being introduced is for two main reasons, one it creates media interest which means that most of the rozzers will read about it (those that can read) which saves them being trained in any new legislation. The other reason is to scare the great unwashed that there is a real risk of terrorism out there.

We really do not need any of the anti Terror legislation since 2000 ( including the Anti Terror Act 2000, and all of it’s subsequent updates) THe Rozzers coped fine with the legislation that we had when the IRA were doing their thing, with the better intelligence that would should have available the job should be easier now.

The Wankers in Charge (both Government and ACPO) want removing from power, and fucking soon, before they legislate that my rants are promoting terrorism. C*nts the lot of them.
