I have the feeling that things are heating up. The government is under considerable pressure due to the global economy - and are looking to increase their control in any way they can.
The liberties we all take for granted are under threat, and all we hear are stupid party politics from the opposition. Hope is being placed in Obama, when our country is disintegrating into farce. Laws are being passed with no-one really understanding what they will mean. From "Form 696" to e-mail snooping, from massive databases in the hands of the private sector to ID cards.
Mass action will be required. Personally, I'm amused by the "cc all your emails to Jacqui Smith" Day group on Facebook - 3,614 members and counting. Mind you, if it works the founder will probably end up in court for a supposed cyber-crime. However, if you think about this concept for a moment, you will realise that it is a spectacular Distributed Denial of Service attack (DDOS).
Watch this space, maybe we can make our politicians honest after all.
