Life in the Soviet Rep. of Gordon Brown's "Cool Britannia"

Labour can not make its mind up.
If the Government has an overarching strategy for meeting the multiple challenges of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression and the collapse in economic output, then it is so confusing and contradictory that it is impossible to recognise.

Every day the British public wakes up to a torrent of new announcements, pledges and interviews with policymakers.
The trouble is that all of these commitments point in completely different directions.
Of course not the fat coward keeps on bottling.

David Blunkett will today warn of the dangers of allowing an 'oppressive' and 'eventually self-destructive' Big Brother state to develop.

The former Home Secretary has concerns about plans for mass data sharing by public bodies and the Home Office's proposal for a giant database holding records of every phone call and internet click.

In a speech today, Mr Blunkett will also suggest one solution to the identity cards row would be to make passports compulsory for everyone, with ID cards only being issued to those who want one.

But Mr Blunkett, architect of the ID cards policy while at the Home Office, denies Britain is becoming a 'surveillance state'.

He will say it is necessary to use the likes of CCTV cameras to carry out surveillance which - if it were possible to employ enough police to do the work in person - there would be few complaints about.

Mr Blunkett will tell the 21st annual law lecture at Essex University: 'We need principles on which we can base actions which may otherwise, in the name of protecting freedom and decency, become oppressive, intolerant of difference and eventually selfdestructive.'
Yes, thats right after hawking ID cards and working for a company touting for business in ID cards, pushing for detention without trial, giving us useless PCSO's now the tedious fucker thinks we are headed to a snooper state! Wanker.

I wonder if he has anything to do with this?
Pilotless planes used to track the Taliban could soon be hovering over our streets, it has emerged.

Remote-controlled drones are already used widely by the military. Now ministers believe they are likely to become 'increasingly useful' for police work.

Armed with heat-seeking cameras, the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles would hover hundreds of feet in the air, gathering intelligence and watching suspects.
New Labour have failed to clean the hospitals.
He survived the vicious conflict with the Japanese in the jungles of Burma.

But veteran Albert Marriott has been reduced to a wheelchair-bound shell by a spell in the care of the NHS.

Mr Marriott, 90, was admitted to hospital after a fall at home.

He then picked up superbugs Clostridium difficile, E.coli and MRSA - and fractured his pelvis in a fall from a hospital bed.
Whilst bonuses get paid out to failed banks.
Northern Rock will hand big bonuses to 500 executives despite condemning taxpayers to losses of £3.8million a day.

The payout plan unveiled yesterday clashes with Gordon Brown's insistence last week that no banker associated with a loss can receive a bonus.

Bradford & Bingley, another state-owned bank, also wants to spend millions of pounds on immediate and deferred payouts.

Northern Rock revealed yesterday that it lost £1.4billion in 2008, compared with a shortfall of £167.6million the previous year.

Around 17,400 Northern Rock customers are now at least three months behind on their mortgage payments.

In a major U-turn, the bank is also returning to large-scale mortgage lending, after spending the past year turning customers away.

It will receive £10billion in taxpayers' cash to help it pump £14billion into the crippled mortgage market over two years.
Executed in suburbia: the victim left in a pool of blood as families walked their children to the park. New Labour fail on law and order.

Another fine day in Gordon Brown's "Cool Britannia"
