Clearly my last post on the subject was OTT with reference to the Coalition and I grovel; to the LibDems, not to the Tories, who do not give a shit about civil liberties.
But why don't they give a shit about civil liberties? Quite simple - they are very low on the British electorate's list of nimby priorities, and the Tories have never stood for anything except getting and staying in power.
The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars,
But in ourselves, that we are chicken-shit.
