    The police already have enough powers, and the last government gained a reputation for being too interested in curtailing liberties. If I remember correctly, the Labour government had similar proposals, which the Tories voted against, yet now they want to bring them in. I confronted Ed Miliband on this a while back, and he agreed that we had rightly gained a bad reputation. I would hope that the next government would seek to find ways to rein back the surveillance society, not increase it.

      And can you see that, from this, it is the civil service that is pushing all the illiberal legislation? Mr Cameron might be a stooge for the EU, but he is equally a puppet for the non-elected higher echelons of the eminence grise.

    The constabulary don’t seem to be able (or willing) to follow up the clues they do have. Wasn’t Fiona Pilkington’s suicide a matter of “life and death” as Hogan-Howe puts it?

    Just another example of what politicians say when they want votes and what they do when they get those votes and get into Govt. They are all total hypocrits!

    Well duh – anything you say to get someone to have sex with you is automatically voided once they have sex with you; same thing with voting surely ;-)

Boris on his fellow Islingtonista Emily Thornberry:

“It was an entirely run-of-the-mill English townscape, with some straightforward words to go with it. There was no obvious insult, no abuse, no overt sneering. She might have got away with it entirely, had some alert blogger not spotted it. He instantly detected the coded message that Emily Thornberry was sending to all her right-on, bien-pensant, Labour-luvvie friends in Islington, or wherever else it is that they follow her on Twitter.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
