A bad week for democracy

A bad week for democracy this week with the new counter terrorism and security bill going through parliament.  This bill won't have much effect on terrorists but it will make millions of ordinary normal people criminals.  The bill dubbed the thought police make even meetings an offence unless certain conditions are met.  You really should read the whole thing.

The Met police (remember the police who pay someone to change their light bulbs) have been told not to go out alone for their own safety.  Well I'm sure that's good advise but what about the rest of us? are we supposed to be chaperoned as well?  The police are supposed to protect us, lot of good they'll be if they can't even look after themselves....
