Bring These Bastards Down NOW

The Observer headline is "Fury as Commons denied DNA vote", though the word "fury" is probably overdone, considering the supine nature of the Commons to date on any of these surveillance matters.
Jacqui Smith, the home secretary, has been warned that the government risks further damaging the public's faith in politics after it emerged that plans for the police to keep innocent people's DNA profiles for up to 12 years will become law without a Commons vote.
What this action shows is the complete contempt the government has for us and our rights. It's incredible that even in their death throes they are still arrogant enought to push this kind of legislation through.

These bastards have to be removed as soon as possible and it must be made clear to the incoming government that ALL of the authoritarian surveillance legislation introduced by Labour, from RIPA onwards, must be totally scrapped. Otherwise there will be strife.
