Our Labour's Lost ...

After the Blair years, Mr Brown promised a new beginning. Well that has certainly happened. Having graduated from spin and a cavalier attitude to our judicial systems and armed forces, our government now seems willing to sell out our liberties, abandon the poor and the the weak and kowtow to the well heeled.

Mr Brown even has the chutzpah to describe David Davis' stand against authoritarianism as "a stunt and a farce". Actually Mr Brown, it's called having principles, something to stand for and the integrity to stand by it.

I find it difficult to accept that the Labour party would ever sell out our liberty for a sham of security. It was Blair's leadership that made me abandon Labour and vote Liberal at the last election. I really believed that things might change for the better.

I was wrong. Whatever this government is, Labour it isn't.
