Murdoch's Man versus Freedom & Liberty?

Whatever else Rupert Murdoch is he certainly isn't a man who likes to take his hand off the control button. He is the control freak's control freak. Kelvin Mackenzie, "former editor of the Sun", is one of his bagmen and apologist-in-chief. Mackenzie says he will stand against David Davis in the forthcoming by-election in Haltemprice and Howden if Labour bottle out. Let him! He's a mouthy type, who doesn't care much for others' liberties. Mackenzie, who backs Labour on 42 days, says he is "90%" likely to stand on behalf of the Sun. "I have been associated with The Sun for 30 years. The Sun is very, very hostile to David Davis because of his 28 day stance and The Sun has always been very up for 42 days and perhaps even 420 days." 420 days! Really? The man is an utter gutter-type attracter. I doubt he got bothered in the slightest over the Forest Gate cock-up. He probably thinks Guantanamo Bay is a great place for "terrorists". And let him not imply that those of us campaigning against this anti-freedom policy are soft on terrorism. No way. This attack on freedom only plays into the hands of terrorists and it also weakens us. If we are not free, who is the winner? Us or Alky Ada (the Prime Minister's new replacement for Prudence)?

On the radio this morning Mackenzie was leading the "if you've done nothing wrong, you've got nothing to worry about" brigade with gusto. These types are just so intellectually challenged. How many times over the last 10 years, under the Blair regime and now under this Brown sauce collective, have we seen a total mismanagement of freedoms and liberty? Has Mackenzie ever heard of identity theft? Of the police knocking on the wrong door? With so many computer discs going astray from government offices, the day he gets woken up at 6am, to be told he knocked over somebody in Tesco, is fast approaching!!!

Gordon Brown is running a government that has only 20% support from the total electorate. That means a whopping 80% either voted for other parties or stayed away from the polls last time.Yes, 80% did not give their support to New Labour. Yet the obnoxious McNulty, that Home Office minister, seems to think his anti-libertarian stance has the backing of the public. McNulty says Davis is off-beam. I'd give David Davis high marks for integrity. With McNulty, I'd show him the door of the Spinners' and Deceivers' room!

Yes this will be an extraordinary by-election. It will be all those in favour of freedom and civil liberty pitted against the control freaks. History doesn't change much, but as David Davis says, I too don't want to live in a country where anyone can be just pulled of the street and flung into jail without blinking an eyelid!
