I have never been more scared...

I cannot believe that the Prime Minister, the most powerful person in our country has said:

Dave no longer wants us sticking together
"For too long, we have been a passively tolerant society, saying to our citizens: as long as you obey the law, we will leave you alone. It’s often meant we have stood neutral between different values. And that’s helped foster a narrative of extremism and grievance. This Government will conclusively turn the page on this failed approach."

I'm sorry Dave, but this approach is more likely to make people turn to extremism. Tolerance is one of those British values that we should be most proud.  Just a few days back in the job though, without Liberals holding his hand he is already back to preaching the politics of fear and using this to control the population how he sees fit.  We demonise Russia, China et al for the way that they try and control their citizens, yet somehow our Prime Minister thinks it's perfectly acceptable to do it here.  For the second time on this blog I'm going to quote Frank Turner.

"Cause a man who'd trade his liberty for a safe and dreamless sleep
Doesn't deserve the both of them and neither shall he keep"

At least they can't legally do some of the things that have been mentioned as the it is against peoples right to a private life as dictated by the Human Rights legislation that we have in place... oh... next blog for that I think.
