    Kindda beggars belief really..........

    In areas where good schools are scarece some families will lie to get their kids into a particular school. This practise is to say the least unfair but to use such powers...well above and beyond the levels of sanity and decency really!

    Britain and the British people are probably the most spied upon in the western world, we use anti-terrorism legislation to check on a school application form - please tell me what the f**k is going on?

    We have a country where political liberlism favours the criminal rather than the victim, the terrorist over the citizen and now we have councils spying on mothers trying to get their kids in schools. We can mobilise chase teams and surveilance operations against a mother but when one needs assistance or are in danger there are no police on the streets - if you call for help you are told "no one available" - if you defend yourself - you become the criminal. (if you survive).


    Something's really sick in this f**king Country!!

    Yeah, its scary. So is the fact that we have lost the right to silence and a trial under some circumstances and nobodys seems to be bothered or even be aware of it.

    Absolutely!! It confuses the hell outta me....we get so uptight and vocal about a bunch of bloody Tibetans and their plight, but we meekly capitulate and accept without so much as a squeak to some of the most draconian anti-democratic laws in the civilised world!!??

    Maybe the Tibetans should protest for our rights on their streets ;)
