    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 ;-)

Diane Abbott on the Daily Politics:

“Labour MPs will unite behind Ed Miliband, once we find out what our policies are.”
