Dame 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.

Dillow and The Devil may br discounted as frothy mouthed blogger but FFS she knows of what she talks.

This is "off topic"...unless you are on about Liberty:

Blimey She's quick off the mark. Such insight. Pah! Where was she five years ago when all this stuff started going through at breakneck speed? Why didn't she mention any of this some time ago when they passed the latest law outlawing the capturing photographs of Policemen? Just another silly Tory twat.

Damn, Tony beat me to it, where has she been. It could be seen coming several years ago. And the antics of ACPO show who is behind it.

Umm, the Devil might be "frothy mouthed" or potty mouthed maybe, but that's why we love him. Dillow may be a blogger but 95% of his posts are pretty dry economic stuff, I hardly think he should be categorised as "Frothy"!

This is not an endorsement, I don't agree with some of his economics, but that post was bang on and when people like Chris are pointing this out I think it shows how far down that road we have gone...

Interesting that Ms. Rimington gave her interview to a Spanish newspaper.

Was she afraid of something if she spoke out in this country?
