Police state Britain
Go on holiday and get arrested under the Terrorism Act when you return - the abuse of that act's powers is becoming almost a daily occurrence.
Let's take the example of the Coombs family who had a day trip to France and then returned home via the Channel Tunnel. First they were accused of child trafficking, because Joshua, their 12 year old son is of a different race - he's probably adopted.
Then ten coppers surround their car and they are all nicked under the Terrorism Act. Do you see how it works? The filth start off with one allegation and then use the Terrorism Act as a catch-all to arrest anyone they like.
The family were only held in custody for two hours and the filth are now being all sweetness and light because they can't lie and spin their way out of this one, but that is not the point.
The point is that if you give the state more powers, then the state's overpaid and undereducated thugs will abuse those powers.
