The answer is there isn't democracy in the UK anymore...
Section 44 of the Terrorism Act 2000 allows the police to stop and search anyone in a specific area. Meaning everybody in the UK is a suspect if the
Police choose so.
Before Section 44, the police could only stop and search individuals if they had 'reasonable grounds' and certain criteria were met. That is no
longer necessary, and we have seen Section 44 powers used against anti-war, anti-weapons and anti-capitalist protestors...
WHICH, co-incidentally is an invasion of a the Human Right 'The Right to Protest' one of your civil liberties.
The Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005 has recieved most publicity for it's ban on unauthorised protests within 1 km of Parliament - widely
accepted to have been devised to end the peace protest of Brian Haw.
Lets look at the Lisbon Treaty...
The UK Government sent out around 400,000 ballot papers to poll whether signing the Lisbon Treaty would be welcomed by the UK, 88% of the papers
returned said that they would not welcome the move. Yet our Government did it anyways...
When did the people of the UK get to vote. Interestingly, only Labour and Lib Deb areas got to vote in the polls.
The Lisbon Treaty I'm sure you're all aware to basically sum it up makes Europe a superpower and there will be a president of Europe. We will
inevitably have a European Army and most likely a European Police Force. Our army will be at the service of Europe and not just for our Queen and
country. This seems to me like too few people with too much power. And that sounds like the beginnings of a dictatorship not a democracy.
Plans have gone ahead for compulsory ID Cards...
Although we will not be forced to have an ID card when renewing passports until 2010, we will have our details entered onto the National Identity
Register much sooner.
If completed, the NIR would be the world’s biggest biometric database, holding fifty two pieces of information on every adult who remains in the UK
for longer than three months.
MI5 don't seem to be doing so well with keeping top secret details private at the moment do they?
Our phones are now tapped for the whim of Police, Companies, the Government, but as yet I believe it cannot be used as evidence in court
All this to apparently curb 'Terrorism'...
There is one CCTV camera for every 14 people in the UK. If you live in London you are likely to be on cameras 300 times a day.
Yet, kids are killing other kids, stabbings, gun crime and anti-social behaviour is at an all time high. I rememeber a decade or so ago riding my bike
around all day without my parents really worrying where I was. There is no chance kids could do that now...
Our spineless ass-licking Prime Minister has sent yet more troops (a record number since the start of the war there) over to Afganistan - have they
found Bin Laden yet? NO lmao!
Pimped our country to Europe.
Is hated by alot of the UK even worse than Tony Blair was before he stepped down.
He is basically doing as he likes with his posse of MP's...
The US is the same too... Bush - this guy came out of Yale with such famous quotes as: "More and more of our imports now are from other
Its confuses me why people don't do anything about it or atleast speak up in force... Is it not time to overthrow our Governments?
