I did wonder why the acting Met commissioner was quite so mouthy this morning saying his officers were great, did nothing wrong with Damian Green MP and then this afternoon Gorbals Mick drops the ultimate bombshell in Parliament.
The Met police conducted their raids on a democratically elected MP without a search warrant! (Perhaps a judge would have asked too many sensible questions about the reasons why??)
You couldn't make it up!
After I had stopped laughing I realised this underlines what I have been saying in ths blog.
And that is that the police are out of control. They must be brought to book. Senior officers and civil servants need to be sacked over this.
On top of this the front page of the Daily Mail today announces that the march of Big Brother carries on. Police will be able to stop anyone and ask for their 'papers'. For this read ID card - and this really is a final nail in our democratic coffin.
I've said it before and I'll say it again - the people the officials are after are legitimate British citizens (even if born abroad and take citizenship), they will have legit 'papers' so stopping people and arresting those who won't produce ID is just a farce. And then to threaten prison is a joke.
Again it will be the law-abiding masses who will get hit the hardest.
Surely, we can't be that far from a revolution, civil dissent or even a coup? (Mind you, the Army are stretched abroad so won't be able to do it - funny that).
We're doomed I tell you, doomed.
