Not Just a Police State of the Future


Harriet Harman this morning on the Andrew Marr show said something which had far reaching ramifications. She said of Sir Fred Goodwin's pension:



"The prime minister has said that it is not acceptable and therefore it will not be accepted.

"And it might be enforceable in a court of law, this contract, but it is not enforceable in the court of public opinion and that is where the government steps in."



So be wary. This current Labour regime is eroding more and more into our civil liberties. They have already shown they see themselves as above the law when they invade Iraq on false pretences. Now they are seeking to overturn the law, their own ministerial approvals all for the sake of making up for a mistake that they have made in the past. So they are not just content with rewriting history they want to rewrite laws you may not have known you'd fallen foul of.

I have to admit that hearing that soundbite this morning made me feel sympathy for the bankers for the first time.
