More Tyranny in the UK
An elderly couple buy a plant that happens to smell like dope, so the cops raid the place. And even paper-boys are not immune from the reach of the anti-terror laws. But of course, we saw last week how anti-terror police are now being used to intimidate members of parliament who dare question the state.

There's no doubt that England is leading the western nations in the march towards a police state. But sadly, many will argue that it is all necessary. Which only tells me that the state's campaign of propoganda is working the way they want it to.
A man who understood the value of propoganda:
"Naturally the common people don't want war: Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, IT IS THE LEADERS of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is TELL THEM THEY ARE BEING ATTACKED, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. IT WORKS THE SAME IN ANY COUNTRY."

England has always been a bit of an anomaly. Some of the greatest tracts on human liberty have come from her, while also some of the greatest tyrannies. There's a bit of irony there, eh?
