Nosemonkey's EUtopia

In search of a European identity


“I could write a post on this blog calling for the withdrawal of British troops from Iraq, then a few days later some terrorists could attack London citing such a withdrawal as their goal, and I could then be prosecuted.” And more.

It’s rather worrying that we need to keep pointing out the dangers posed by our present government to our way of life, but I for one am more concerned about what Blair, Clarke and co are up to than whether the terrorists are going to strike again. Blow me up? Kill my friends? Bugger my transport system? I’ll be pissed off and upset, but I’ll carry on as before and try not to live in fear of the next attack. Remove my right to trial, to privacy? Then I’ll be living in constant fear.
