Transparency In Britain? (2)

Following the preceding post, Transparency in Britain, a further report by Statewatch takes the question of the existence of ACPO, NETCU, WETCU and NPOIU even further.

"The usual image of a “police state” includes secret police dragging people out of their homes at night, with scenes out of Nazi Germany or Stalin’s SSR. The problem with these images is that they are horribly outdated. That’s how things worked during your grandfather’s war – that is not how things work now. An electronic police state is quiet, even unseen. All of its legal actions are supported by abundant evidence. It looks pristine. An electronic police state is characterized by this: State use of electronic technologies to record, organize, search and distribute forensic evidence against its citizens."

It would seem that where dictators and oppressors have failed to curtail our 'freedom' the present government is succeeding!

And the opposition to this Mr. Cameron - or Mr. Clegg - is...........?
