Refreshing, 14 May 2009
I found this book particularly refreshing as it lays out the cold hard facts and exposes the truth about how our liberty has been assaulted on an unprecedented scale. Raab also talks about the implications of the nefarious 'Regulation and Investigatory Powers Act', 'the Anti-Terrorism Act' and the spurious E.U. 'human rights' and how rather than benefiting and protecting society, these new statutes and leglislations turn the very concepts of 'innocent before proven guilty', 'criminal justice', 'liberty', on its head. He shows how these acts have created a culture of criminalising the public for the most petty of misdemeaners meanwhile dangerous criminals continue to be treated with a 'softly softly' approach from the legal system, ultimately escaping any real justice. Raab exposes the shocking fact that Tony Blair effectively introduced a new 'law/statute/leglislation' for every single day he was im power for the entire duration of his being in office. Because all these draconian and oppressive new laws have been introduced drip by drip, the public failed to notice the implications. It is only now the reality of living in a totalitarian police state is dawning and that we need to act, fast - before our last remnants of liberty are snatched away.
