Is Gordon Brown creating his own Schutzstaffel ?

"

FFS...where is "V" when we need him?! :evil: 8O

However, comparing Gordon's Goons to the SS is a terrible insult...to the Nazis. :twisted:

I'd love to see a paramilitary heavy mob goose-stepping on the heads and testicles of Chavs, drug-dealers etc. Unfortunately, frightning OAP's and giving law abiding citizens a shoeing for daring to question the Party is about ZANU-Labour's limit... :pissedoff: :pissedoff: :pissedoff:

As I said elwhere, V for Vendeta was a documentry.

Labour is on a self-destruct course. How many years will they spend in opposition after the next election? I might start a book on it.

It would be dangerous to simply write off ZANU-Labour. About the only thing they are good at is winning elections. Remember also they have created a huge class of "client voters" - people on benefits, those who work for the Civil Service etc. Turkeys don't vote for Xmas. :evil:

Don't bet against ZANU-Labour equalling the Tories 18 year "winning" streak...

If this latest bit of news comes to fruition this party is on a fast track to self destruction. "Their" client voters are the people it will affect the most!

They might as well step further back in time and recreate the 'Enclosure Act' & throw in a bit of 'Land Clearance' too!

Oh, come on - Mugabe Brown is not about to let a little thing like the Democratic Process get in the way of "progress", is he?

Like the vast majority of politicians....you can tell when Broon's lying, his lips move!

I thought it was V: The Series concerning aliens known as "The Visitors" trying to take over Earth.

Reasonable grounds for breaking down the door include the “movement of a curtain”, a radio being heard or a figure being spotted inside which “may be the offender”.

Only the latter is reasonable enough for the Police to gain entry as people who have tried the "Curtain twitched" or "The TV was on excuse" have been seriously disciplined - Oh dear!

I dare say there ae he fe that woldn't abuse these powers however I expect the majority would relish the oppurtunity to not have to "Fanny about" any more. Boot through the door, give me your stuff and I'm off.

V for Vendetta on its way?

There's a long and dishonourable history of baillifs acting outwith the law

Tie a very sharp knife to the end of a broom handle....

"They don't like it up 'em!" :twisted:

On another note, those in financial crisis are to be denied interest-free emergency loans and charged up to 26% APR. I think the government are looking to franchise this service out to loan sharks, Crapita etc. Pay up for your hip replacement granny, or we'll break your legs!

"...the new powers would be overseen by a robust industry watchdog...."

like the ones that oversees the Security Industry and Parking Enforcement? What a joke.

Truth is that is the Government goes not give a stuff about trampling over basic freedoms by allowing such things It is all about giving Baliffs the abilty to recover unpaid taxes with greater ease.

HMRC is under pressure to reduce the number and volume of unrecovered individual tax debts which the National Audit Office found have increased by 22 per cent.

A serious problem would be if you are in dispute over something and the credit cardc company or vendor decides to ignore the County Court and thus negate arbitration and just call in the bailiffs. But we will have a supervisior body like the ones which oversee telephones,gas and things like that so we will be OK I suppose.

Code:

If there is, it will be as toothless as the FSA & FOS. It will be a case of the police policing themselves!

Not exactly like the SS, they at least were under central control. This shower are handing state powers over to private companies to use in the pursuit of profit.

Of all the things NL have done to disgust, appal and outright terrify me, that's got to be the worst.

I quite agree carrots, this has far reaching implications for anyone with any property worth having. It will be too late complaining after a moron has broken into your house and made off with the TV, computer and other things. If they are wrong then the householder/customer has the grief of sorting out the mess. It may be reasonable to knock down a door but not to make a hole in the wall. Well that is comforting.
