The British Police State - Rimington Confirms

Dame Stella Rimington makes plain what lots of us know, ie that the Labour government is actively turning Britain into a police state, using the threat of crime and terrorism as an excuse.

Dame Stella was the first director general of MI5. In other words, she knows what she's talking about.

The article refers to the collection of all our internet and telephone data, which is going through parliament as the Intercept Modernisation Bill; it fails to mention that this is in compliance with a European Union directive (2006/24/EC). Not that Labour would complain. We have the double threat of an authoritarian government at home and a corrupt authoritarian superstate beyond that.

This is the truth of the matter:


The Bolshevik Broadcasting Company mentioned it on Radio 4 and briefly on tv. Let's see what happens when it comes to the main tv news during the rest of the day.

And they're not the only ones at it: even the New Zealand government thinks it can deprive its citizens of internet access for suspicion of copyright infringement.
