Back in February this year Jack Straw, writing in the Grauniad (where else?), stated:
"But on any objective basis, this government has done more to reinforce and strengthen liberty than any since the war." and "I hope that in the final reckoning even some of our harshest critics will concede that this Labour government has done more than any before it to extend liberties and to constrain government."
And, pray, what planet are you from Jack? I cannot even be bothered to start listing areas where our liberties have been eroded and where 'government' has not been 'constrained'!
Unfortunately, as I have said on previous occasions, it appears the country is about to replace one collection of self-opinionated, under-qualified idiots with another set who have exactly the same 'values'! It is doubly distressing that neither understands the true meaning of 'democracy'!
