This may be a bit off topic, but I feel that your nation is on a really downward slide into total control and more crazy laws.
The British people are, I believe, more civil, socially concerned, giving and open than any others I have ever met. You have endured hundreds of
years of changing history with grace and dignity, have defended the rights of the downtrodden worldwide, and deserve the very best government that a
nation can muster.
I am in complete agreement. This nation is the best in the world to live in because of its general tolerance of others. However, we cannot allow
uncontrolled immigration from the whole of Eastern Europe. This
mat well be the next big problem for Britain.
You seem a bit perplexed and helpless to an observer; too polite to raise hell and get changes, too timid to demand rather than request that
you are the masters of your own destiny. Eternal optimism may not be a desirable trait for your future.
I completely agree with you. We are the most docile public in the world and the most apathetic when we go to the polls. However, we distrust our
politicians more than most other nations.
That is a mistaken assumption and will lead us into the same quagmire you are now in: Once rights are taken, they are NEVER returned. The
average American at least has enough weaponry and ammo to make it difficult, if not impossible, to make us a police state in the worst sense, and
believe me, when push comes to shove the average American will lock and load if it comes to defending the basics of our homes and lives. You all do
not have that option anymore. You now HAVE to be a docile and obediant population as only the cops and the crooks now are armed.
Too true. I am watching our rights to proper democratic freedom decliing to an all time low under the Blair regime. I was hoping for positive change
under the new guy, Dr. Gordon Brown, but after the last four days, I think that laws will become MORE constrictive and limit our freedoms to a greater
degree. The recent attacks will justify laws to include GPS chips in cars and possibly chipped ID cards. At that point, I would not like to live
You are watched, taxed, listened to, measured and filed away in some database somewhere..the finest people in the world being treated like
suspects at all times by an authoritarian and uncaring elite. It is a crying shame that the nation that basically civilzed the world, that
established new and successful nations worldwide, that defines the very essence of intelligent and civil discourse in politics and business and has
done so for hundreds of years, is being sold down the primrose path to total control and subjugation of the people by the same globalist billionaires
that are ruining my country. What a shame. But at least we will be able to make a last stand and fight back if push comes to shove. And that fact may
just be the reason that we keep a few basic rights while yours keep getting swept away with each phony terror attack or govt. sponsored ' event
Superb comments. I wish I could give you more than one star because this deserves an 'applause'. Once again, an excellent summary of the way that
many people feel about what is happening to Britain surreptitiously. We have already 'bought into' the European legislative framework for a unified
EU, whether we like it, or not.
I fear for us all but remember that you are the cream of the crop of civilized humanity, you carry the banner, and when that falls, the world
will be a place I might not want to live in anyway. Good luck.
If we cannot stop the latest Fascist trends by Government in the next 5 years, the flame of hope carried by the Brits wll be snuffed out for good.
