SPG and Sus Laws Make A Potential Comeback


Breaking News on the BBC: The government is considering giving all police officers across the UK “stop and question” powers, the Home Office has confirmed. The proposal, allowing police to ask people about their identity and movement is among measures being considered for a new anti-terror bill. This sounds like a blinged-up version of Thatcher’s disgusting SUS laws to me. It’s all going to go horribly wrong and IS terribly wrong. We are the most ‘watched’ nation in the world, now we will be the most ‘monitored’. It reminds me of the late 70’s/early 80’s and the horror of the SPG. I predict a riot! We don’t live in a democracy anymore and we shouldn’t take it. Our government has managed to ‘criminalise’ youth and kill most social resources for those that need it. What have we been left with? A load of CCTV camera’s and a health and education service on it’s knees. Bad. Bad. Bad.

UPDATE: I posted a comment about my views on the recommended new stop and question laws on the bbc news blog tonight – apparently I have to wait for it to be ‘moderated’. My point entirely!
