For the last few years I've been worrying about the authoritarian tendencies of our government. I've written articles about it, engaged in long discussions about it, tried to keep an eye on everything they're doing, and so forth. But all along, I might have simply missed a crucial point:
Tony Blair may want to turn Britain into an authoritarian state, but his government is too incompetent to do so!
What a revelation!
Unfortunately, this is only a temporary respite. They may be incompetent and unable to spy on their own ass (hint: use a mirror), but that's no reason not to worry about what the next government might do with the legislative framework set up by this one. They might really make it work.
