Britain Today

Every time NuLabour supplies the Police with more power to harass, search, arrest, detain or otherwise deprive us of our hard won liberties. The British people are told that such powers will only be used against extremists, yobs, drunken louts and anti social people. Well rather shockingly (or not) the police have been using their new powers against the aforementioned groups (except of course these extremists because they are scarred shitless by The Religion of PeaceĀ®). The problem is they are now also using them against nice law abiding people. At least they would be law abiding if it weren't for the fact Nulab keeps making things illegal.

Since 1997 Nulab has placed over 700 new criminal offenses on the statute books. In their frenzy of legislating the gov has introduced numerous badly drafted not to mention pointless laws. Most will gather dust, rarely if ever used. Other laws like the recent incitement to religious hatred bill will also rarely be used. Simply passing the law has done what the gov intended, chilled freespeech of non Muslims and bought votes in marginal NuLab constituencies with big blocks of traditionally Labour voting Muslims. This is of course electioneering by legislating rather than legislating in the interest of the British public as a whole. A concept presumably alien to any contemporary socialist only interested in victim groups and minorities.

Seemingly desperate to be seen doing something the Gov spews out new initiatives, consultations and unnecessary laws, all the time centralizing power in the office of Prime Minister and his unelected cronies. bLiar ever the political genius is creating a sort democratic dictatorship in which the Sun and the Daily Mail say jump and Mr bLiar seems to say "how high?" The fact is real freedom seems to be a somewhat abstract notion to a people kept in fear by a gov becoming addicted to power. We should of course be afraid of the threat that Islam poses to European freedoms. However we must not let the fear agenda be used by Nulab in its hopefully doomed attempt to create a system in which it can crush all but the most benign forms of dissent from how Nulab and its apparachniks want Britain to resemble. They want total control of the populace and the detail of peoples lives. Perry De Havilland on the "Radical Centre":
The Radical Centre seem to have the same obsession with control that the fascists and communists had but unlike them, it is control for control's sake rather than in the service of some clear ideology: there is no Blairite or Clintonite (or even 'Bushite') 'The Communist Manifesto' or 'Mein Kampf'. They do not seek the triumph of Volk or the dictatorship of the proletariat, they just seek to replace all social interactions with politically mediated interactions. They seek to regulate everything via a total state that does not organise mass rallies or collectivise farms, it just wants a world in which nothing whatsoever is private, everything is political. Their symbol is not the Hammer and Sickle or the Swastika, it is the CCTV camera.

The Radical Centre has also been called 'Authoritarian Populism' because it seeks to impose the popular will by force and it does not much care what that will is. Just as liberty for liberty's own sake is the objective of the Classical Liberal/Libertarian rather than some 'overarching narrative' as was the case with the radical statist left and statist right in the corpse filled 20th century, the Radical Centre seek control for control's own sake with no particular grand reason in mind other than to perpetuate a political class whose reason for existence is to make decisions about other people's lives.
Wake up from you slumber Britain.
