More Signs and Portents

The Independent reports that Robin Cook warns against alienation of British Muslims, although the way the Home Office is going, it's looking to alienate anyone and everyone that disagrees with it, whomever they are.

Elsewhere, more evidence that simply putting more cameras in and hoping for the best really doesn't work.

Unfortunately, modern "civil" thinking seems to be continuing along the lines that it's better to catch those causing trouble/mayhem after the fact, than to construct a more responsible, respectful society in the first place. Keep watching as the government maintain a steadily-concocted confusion between what it means to be "liberal", and what it means to be "self-interested". The erosion of our language continues apace.
