Spot The Difference

Spot the difference ? That's easy. One arrest took place under a ruthlessley totalitarian regime which silences opposition at every opportunity, where freedom to demonstrate is routinely suppressed and where a once proud and prosperous economy has been left in ruins.

The other was in Zimbabwe.

All done in the name of freedom from terror, it seems the real terrorists are in the Government, bring on the election.

There may not have been Zimbabwe-esque violent intimidation (let's hang a big YET on that though) - but this regime are still truly evil.

Over the last eleven years they have committed murder. They have murdered the civil liberties and freedoms this country has traditionally enjoyed.

ID Cards. A Database State. 1 CCTV Camera per 15 Citizens. Communications Monitoring. Terror laws to catch those who overfill their bins.

And now - nine Anti-Terror Political Police 'officers' to arrest an Opposition Minister for making public information which deserved to be in the public domain. For doing something that this regime do daily and with great effect (leaks to Peston affecting the stock market, and the recent leaks of the PBR for example).

The Brown Regime is shabby, dishonest and frankly abhorrent, and I believe they will use any method - up to and including the imposition of the Civil Contingencies Act - to hold onto the power and control that is all they covet.

I honestly believe that with this first political arrest, we can safely say that British Freedom (1215-2008) has now died. Obituary at
