Life in prison for embarrassing Anti-Citizen Smith?

Maybe Wolfie was right in one respect, we do need more power to the people. Especially when we have people in power like our Anti-Citizen Smith (or Jackboot Jacqui to her mates mate to people who know her). You don't want to be embarrassing Jacqui, apparently you get raided by anti-terror police, locked up and threatened with life imprisonment.

Damian Green was asked if he knew why he had be threatened with life, he said: "I assume it's because it's a common law offence therefore because there is... no law on the statute book which I was alleged to have broken, then presumably there is no set sentence for it. "I just thought this was absurd."

And now we have the A C Smith coming over all, "it's my job to protect the people", Bollocks Jacqui. You think the people should do as they are told. Apparently Jacqui's announced that there is going to be a review into councils spying on us. She wants to stop the anti-terror laws being abused for reasons such as putting your bin out early. What she fails to point out is that it was her government that introduced such laws, and she has done absolutely bugger all to stop councils using those laws to spy on us.

It's the worst kind of spin. It's like Jacqui giving orders for you to be whipped and then saying she is going to hold a review into cracking down on those who whip. It's time to go Anti-Citizen Smith.

Pretty much sums it up.

I would happily chuck the lot of them in gaol, but I wouldn't be happy about paying for them in there either.

String 'em up. It's cheaper and puts them out of our misery quickly.

The Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (RIPA) was introduced, as we all know, in 2000 to give the authorities the powers to spy on people in the fight against serious crime and terrorism.

But here's a classic example of 'mission creep';

But [Jacqui Smith] defended councils' right to use the [RIPA] powers against suspected rogue traders or fly tippers.

I think many are beginning to understand that this government is at best criminally incompetent and at worse, in the case of the ogre at the top, clinically insane. They are finished, there is no way anywhere but the solid heartlands are going to elect a Labour MP,
it is the marginals where elections are won and lost.
Places like Manchester and Sunderland would vote for a parking meter if you put a red rosette around it :)
