Still, at least our Deutschen Brüder und Schwestern are getting it. Maybe they always did, but are locked into a similar tyranny? Maybe it doesn't matter how loud they shout, "democracy" wins every time. I am beginning to think that democracy is spelt d.i.c.t.a.t.o.r.s.h.i.p.
And this must be stopped dead in its tracks.
Ready to be horrified?
"Nick Clegg added that after years of Labour authoritarianism, theirs would be a government ‘that hands you back your liberties’.
Now, however, almost unnoticed, this same Government is planning to enact highly illiberal changes to the justice system.
If, as Mr Cameron intends, they become law later this year, the consequences will be an unprecedented growth of secret hearings in both civil court cases and inquests; to deny ordinary citizens the ancient Common Law right to challenge evidence against them; and to make it far more difficult to call wrongdoing by government agencies to account."
If you can tear yourself, and others, away from the telly for five minutes, read the whole thing. And the comments. I do believe people are seeing this pathetic government for what it is at last.
That cozy looking coalition is starting to take on a distinctly Merkelese edge.
What will we do about this?
