        Thankfully there is some hope on the horizon.

        Like the USA, we will be having elections in the next year or so, and with luck we will get a change of government, although the present bunch of idiots have made it almost impossible for any opposition party to win a majority in parliament.

          Can I point out to Special Branch and MI5 that I, for one, have not contributed to, nor read this thread.

            I had my office searched by armed Specials a few years ago so. Our local church was also cordoned off, and we were warned that we would be arrested if we tried to enter the building.

            'Why' you might ask? So that the two 'leaders of the free world' could have fish and chips together at the pub across the road.

            Welcome to Britain under New Labour, 'the party of the people' (their words, not mine).

              Remember when the UK smugly looked down on East Germany, Romania et al and their ridiculous surveillance of their own citizens!

              Thanks Blair and Co - under your auspices we've been delivered into the hands of the Stasiesque minority

                    This concept is from a Stephen Fry podcast on the power of language - CCTV just isn't as powerful. (sorry for the lo-fi PS job but I am at work...)




                    ps - the original post is pretty shocking! but not. as in I am no longer surpised that it happens, but still find myself shocked when it does.

                      I doubt if replacing Marlborough Lites with Silk Cut will really resolve the problem, though I envy you your optimism.

                          I do try to remain optimistic. If we give up hope we give up everything.

                          At least if we get a change of government there is a hope that they won't just do what the Daily Mirror tells them to, or worse still, what their sponsors/donors tell them to do.

                          I think it should also be clear to all by now that letting Labour loose with our countries finances is akin to locking up a bunch of five year olds in a sweet shop.

                            Whereas letting the Eton Rifles play with the sweet shop -


                            They gorge themselves like pigs at a trough - get their chosen friends in there too - but, somehow, they manage keep the shop open for business and just solvent - and all that the customers have to do is ignore the gruntings and 'Hussars!' coming from behind the curtain to the back shop as they buy their penny sweets.
