The disturbing pictures of Mr Ian Tomlinson being man-handled by police are covered everywhere. Lead story for Al jeBeeB, The Guardian and so on. Normally I would be apoplectic with rage. Today I feel abject sadness and horror. I wrote of Labour's spin factory. I forgot to show a vat of spin for how wonderful the G20 policing was. In every walk of life this dreadful Government has reached it's tentacles. More obsessed with control and power than any care for the good of the people. Headteachers appointed to earn huge salaries providing they toe the line on policy. The same for social services, hospital managers and chief constables. Council Chiefs and executives all either placemen or under fear of redundancy and loss of pension, if failing to please Whitehall and Downing Street. Just remember the mendacious, bullying nastiness of Alistair Campbell presiding over security briefings because Blair was in love with him. An Attorney General appointed because he was Blair's flat mate. An MP "appointed" by Brown in Glenrothes because he was a previous headmaster of Brown's. So few brilliant people with great expertise overlooked because they were not "on board" The Labour juggernaut of despotism and control. Mr Tomlinson's tragic death is a stark reminder of how Hitler began.
The only question to be answered is where this beginning will end? Platitudes from Brown and Labour cannot hide the way we are now governed. Incompetence, sleaze, greed and mendacious arrogance. Gordon Brown, you are a disgrace.
