Name this country

The following has been stolen, unashamedly, from “Old Holborn'” Blog. 🙂

Ballot Boxes are interfered with
Voting registers go missing
The Police can kill innocent people and get away with it
You can be put in prison for 42 days on pure suspicion
You can be put in prison indefinitely on the word of a politician
The State can torture people
Your children are monitored at School by Political Officers
Their behaviour is logged on a State database for their entire lives
Your innocent fingerprints, iris scans and biometrics are held by the State
You do not have the right to remain silent
You are watched on 4 million CCTV cameras
You may not photograph the Police
The media is controlled by the State
You do not have the right to protest peacefully
Curfews exist for entire communities
Your travel movements are logged and monitored
Who you vote for is logged and monitored
Your shopping habits are studied and logged by the State
Your emails and telephone conversations are recorded by the State
Your passport can be withdrawn at the whim of the State
Government agencies can use lie detector tests on you.

Hands up all those who thought I was describing the Stasi in the old “East Germany”. You get one point for that but, alas, ten points are on offer. Have another guess. Clue: It is a lot nearer to home.

Their headlines:

Carol Thatcher unrepentant over ‘golliwog’ remark

Carol Thatcher has refused to apologise for the “golliwog” comment which saw her sacked from the BBC, blaming her dismissal on political correctness.

I don’t normally use bad language on my blog but it is necessary here as I am about to paraphrase Michael Caine.

“She’s a fucking hero!”
