The goings on in this country since Thursday begs the question whether this Con Dem illiberal government in conjunction with the Metropolitan Police have suspended habeus corpus.
We have seen dozens of protestors pre-emptively arrested on the flimsiest of grounds such as conspiracy to commit a breach of the peace. Squats have been raided in London and Brighton, plain clothes Police have been snatching people from Soho Square not to mention continuing harrassment of UKUncut activists around the country including Glasgow.
In addition to this Facebook have deleted accounts of individuals and groups planning protests; and I don't suppose Facebook did this without some encouragement from the establishment and security services.
The comments of Christine Jones, Commander in the Metropolitan Police was enough to convince anyone of the attitude of the Police towards demonstrators, "Any criminals attempting to disrupt it..." (The Royal Wedding), which shows that policing of the event was not impartial when protestors were routinely described as 'criminals'. Shouldn't it be the courts that decide what is criminal and not the Police?
It really makes one question which is the most illiberal government the Con Dems or Labour, personally I don't feel I can trust either with my liberties.
