Control, Control, Control we must have control

Politicalog is bloggin about Charles Clarkes attempts to finger print everybody in Europe, going to remind people that New Labour did not start destroying civil liberties as a reaction to 9/11, they have always been at it since they where elected. He points out the disgusting Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act, New Labour's first attempt at reversing the burden of proof to make you guilty until proven innocent.

Politicalog also has the best animation I have seen in a while sitting in his side bar.

A post about ID and Charles Clarkes obsession with repression is rather fitting as this comes on the day that the No2ID pledge at Pledge Bank reaches completion. I just received this email
The pledge, created by Phil Booth, reads: 'I will refuse to register for an ID card and will donate £10 to a legal defence fund but only if 10000 other people will also make this same pledge.' The 10001st person has signed the pledge, just moments ago.
Not that that should stop anyone else signing up now, as we will need all the help that we can get to over come the authoritarians of New Labour. I wait with cheque book out to send off my money to the defence fund. However I would rather have be able to pay cash.
