  •  Sadly not a surprise to me (none)
    We are well aware that the attack on liberty is coming, in our country, from a Labour Prime Minister and a large percentage of his fellow party members, like the former Home Secretary David Blunkett and the current Home Secretary Charles Clarke, both of whom have energetically pushed measures to extend imprisonment without charge for extended periods of time, and mandatory identity cards to be carried by the whole population.

    Unfortunately, there is a long and disgraceful tradition, on the Left, of antipathy to the rights of the people. I don't understand it, and I hate it, but I can't deny it's there (and boy do the conservatives enjoy pointing it out)

    Our Foreign Secretary, Jack Straw, was a firebrand lefty in his youth, which makes some people wonder where his totalitarian streak has come from. It hasn't come from anywhere, he was just always that kind of a lefty.
