It’s becoming clear that this “coalition” government is no better than, and in many respects a worse trampler on liberty than, “New Labour”. At least you knew where you were with Labour. They hated everyone except their chosen client-groups, were cheerfully honest and up-front about it, and stated publicly that their objective was to screw and oppress everyone else. In the end, perhaps it’s too late and the British people don’t deserve liberty any more.
