Will New Labour bodgers undermine the rule of law?

Plans 'conflict with law'

The Lord Chief Justice (no he's not a character from Gilbert and Sullivan) has slammed the government's incompetent tiddling about with the bells and whistles on the engine of state, while the train heads full speed for the buffers.

How dare they slam Labour's plans! They spent up to a minute and a half devising those plans and evaluating the impact they might have. Besides, if it David Blunkett's idea it cannot possibly be bad, can it? He has that cute dog afterall. Oh, and he is a racist, xenophobic power crazed reactionary. Anyone remember when he was a socialist still? It was in my living political consciousness so it was within the last two decades. How do these people sleep at night?

power corrupts - an oldie but a goodie.

bogeymen under the beds became reds under the beds and are now islamofascists under the bed so what is the logical thing to do when "we" are under attack but to dismantle "us".
It's reminiscent of the Brecht poem in which the government disolve the people.

The definitions of rights and justice are being rewritten. The bug-eyed, "sincere", evangelical nutters are in the driving seat.
