Odd how sometimes something someone writes on one subject can be applied to another and an instance of this is Henry Porter, writing in the Guardian, on the subject of surveillance systems.
"... I don't believe the Conservatives can yet be trusted...... they hedge their bets, trim their language and finesse their stance......they are not worth voting for. Like those people who made the fall of the wall happen, at some stage the British will have to fight for their freedom. Let's not leave it until it's too late."
Henry Porter could well have been writing about Britain's membership of the EU!
