The RIP Act is being abused by over-zealous councils in the UK. It won't be long before they are stripped of their power.
As for you not being aware, shame on you. No really, it's disgusting your not aware.
It's one thing to sit there and bitch about "how did they get these powers" and "it's like East germany", but how can you bleat about it when
you quite obviously don't follow politics.
It's because people are ignorant and think politics is boring that the damn Labour Government got in power and was allowed to pass this Law in the
first place! If more people actually showed an interest, then things like this wouldn't happen.
It's easy to blame the Government, but when only half the electorate bother to turn out and vote (only 27% of that 50% voted Labour by the way, so
only a 1/4 of the nation actually support the Government)) then it's the people's fault when the Government is allowed to run amok.
PAY ATTENTION FOR CHRISTS SAKE!!!!
