More Totalitarianism.

So, in his wisdom the Anti-Midas (A guy who touches gold and turns it into crap), Gordon Brown, has decided that though the Nick Griffin and Mark Collett of the execrable BNP have been acquitted by jury of stirring up racial hatred he’s going to change the law because, "Any preaching of religious or racial hatred will offend mainstream opinion in this country and I think we have got to do whatever we can to root it out, from whatever quarter it comes."

That would be mainstream opinion in this country that those in the Labour party agree with, of course.

During nine years in office Labour has put more than 3,000 new crimes on the books, brought in five Acts on immigration, seven on terrorism, 10 on education, 11 on health and social care and 23 on criminal justice. Obviously this just isn’t enough to keep us under control.

Maybe Brown will use the ‘Legislative and Regulatory Reform Act’ which now apparently allows Ministers to enact or alter or abolish just about anything they choose without having to put it through Parliament.

What a wonderful time we’re going to have when Brown finally gets his sticky hands on the reins of power.

Is this Brown fellow a local despot or
is he going to take over Blair's position?

I'm sorry I don't know enough about UK politics to guess, but why has Labour done/is Labour doing this? Were people clamoring for more speech restrictions when Blair came to power?

Jim, it's looking like Gordon is a shoe-in to take over Blair's position, or we could get "the Bruiser" - John Reid, the current Home Secretary.

A man with quite a chequered past, who toed a rather thuggish line in his local Communist Party branch.

Some say he has quietened down in his advanced age...
