TONY BLAIR has turned BRITAIN into a land where we are all PRISONERS.
From a passionate Labour supporter: A DAMNING VERDICT ON THE PM'S ASSAULT ON PERSONAL FREEDOM
[Daily Mail-Wednesday, June 13,2007]
EVEN George Orwell would be shocked. He described the sinister machinations of a totalitarian police state in his novel, 1984, and laid bare the danger of eroding our basic civil liberties, including the
RIGHT of PRIVACY
Although he famously coined the phrase
'Big Brother is Watching you'
-even Orwell cannot have foreseen just how prescient those words would prove to be.
The truth is we are fast becoming an Orwellian State -our every movement watched, our behaviour watched, our behaviour monitored, and our
Between May 1997 and August 2006, New Labour created
new criminal offences -taking in everything from a law against Polish potatoes (the polish Potatoes order 2004) to one which made the creation of a nuclear explosion in Britain officially illegal.

As well as a raft of repressive anti-terror legislation, there are the more insidious infringements of our
FREEDOM and PRIVACY
[We have been giving this warning for over ten years but to no avail as the
'Servant of the People'
The problem has been that even when the truth began to emerge the so-called
HER MAJESTY'S OPPOSITION
-hardly raised a murmur. And the people in the main just didn't want to know.
The failure of the Eurosceptic parties and organisations to form an umbrella movement to act as one in order to get millions of protestors on the London streets in the early days to stop the changes

to wait ten years before learning that their policies have brought about (as usual) the very dangers they were warned about on a number of occasions by the Independent
As we have pointed out frequently over the past ten years Tony Blair and his sofa club decide what their policies are to be (no need to let the people know -Yet!) and then do whatever is necessary to bring in conditions to enable then to say that they had to do what they did because the circumstances warranted it. An illegal war is a wonderful cover to bring in pernicious and deadly legislation to curb
- and many other areas-with particular attention to the closure of thousands of rural POST OFFICES-POLICE STATIONS. With LOCAL HOSPITALS closed down which means the growing numbers of the elderly and infirm in our country have a longer distance to travel for treatment or visitation. We now hear in June 2007 that W H Smith are to be offered the job of opening Post Offices in their stores. What a money spinner this will be for the

All this GOVERNMENT needs is a roulette wheel to see what number comes up so that it can implement the policy that comes under that number. If all goes wrong -and it usually does -what does it matter as they have over

They close down our last Military Hospital without any thought for the needs of the brave soldiers-sailors and airmen who are desperately in need for to be treated by their own with their own -and not as a last thought as troublemakers who must be showed who is BOSS.
Might it be possible for the countless millionaires in BUSINESS and COMMERCE to subscribe to a fund to establish a Military Hospital. In the Victorian era particularly the wealthy concerned themselves with building hospitals and schools. Surely there are still many wealthy families who in their family tree have been members of the Armed Forces.
A National Appeal could also be considered. Once the project got under way the Government of the day would be under great pressure to contribute. The attitude of the present Government is the attitude of an unfeeling and ungrateful employer -but that is what happens when political correctness and a constant search to be as ruthless as the much mentioned vultures of the private equity industry.

PFI -whatever the investment is a goldmine which will be plundered for generations to come - future generations will have to pay the compound price..

NO THREAT TO THE UK
Over the past ten years legislation has been dropping from the sky staining our society and sticking into every corner of our once free country. Those responsible are to be compared to the diving shysters in Trafalgar Square who drop their load from a high level and rarely miss their target. It will be easier to wipe the carpet of splattered filth away than to heal the great damage that has been done to
OUR REPUTATION IN THE WORLD
And why have many of these changes being taking place -because of the 117,000 pages of Directives-Regulations and other decisions from

One has also to remember that 70% of people want either

and over 60% at least
Our last word must be about the expected result of medicines being available in Scotland which are not available on the NHS in England and Wales. This is another case where the Government has decided on Devolution for Scotland and Wales but rejected it for England. If that had been granted and with it the acceptance of the quasifederal arrangement for full independence of the three nation states then each state would be free to decide what its citizens should be offered.
The present half-way house will always cause great difficulties which is the nature of the case. As many expect that Scotland will be fully independent within five years. Wales has only recently had it powers increased and it too will proceed to independence.
An account of the Devolution process by one of the foremost experts on the subject Professor Bogdanor in his book
We found that the question of ENGLISH devolution was looked at purely in a EU prospective which raised so many obstacles which out of the EU would disappear. The comparisons between different countries in the EU even suggested that an independent Scotland would not be permitted by the EU to separate itself from being represented by what was left of Britain-though its representatives would be welcome in Brussels. A mention was made of the Basque situation in Spain.
For an Englishman we found that a glance at the face of the book showed all the flags of the United Kingdom except the
-even the Shinn Fein emblem was proudly placed under the
But after reading the book it became apparent why this was so. Only out of a EU prospective would the realisation of an
-provide a more productive research as to the reality of such a consideration.
All the trend of the book was the situation in the EU and in particular the
REGIONS OF ENGLAND
There was the constant theme that the ENGLISH where not interested in nationhood and also neither were they particularly interested in giving up their two tiers of local government for a regionalisation policy. The attempt by the government to payroll the YES! vote in the North East came a cropper even though Big Business -the BBC North East and the EU Elite in the area and the large government additional financial support which was provided.
We appreciate that professor Bogdanor's book was published in 2001 and the political landscape has changed quite dramatically over the past few years. We now have a Scottish SNP First Minister who has no intention of not achieving Independence for his country within the next five years. The English people after being slumbering for many years has now realised that what Scotland can achieve so can

WHY DOES THIS MATTER
The answer is that to

[The TRUTH is that under NEW LABOUR the so -called SERVANTS have now become the MASTERS and they must be laughing all the way to the BANK with also the knowledge that the ELITE will have no need to pay TAXES or OBEY THE LAW. The nation will be divided into SLAVES and the well-paid and pampered ELITE]
Although New Labour says its mania for data-gathering is all part of its plan to protect us, there's no guarantee that future governments (who will be inheriting a national surveillance machine and the National Identity Register) won't use it to more malign means.
[The ONLY PROTECTION which we would have is if PR-PRO-PORTIONAL REPRESENTATION was put in place and then ALL points of opinion on matters of FREEDOM and PRIVACY as we can see before our eyes that Parliament has been powerless to stop the move to a Big Brother state. Only PR would enable these important matters to be freely discussed in what would be more so -
