Is this a democracy?

The arrest of Damian Green has raised a number of questions about our government and abuse of its position.

  • The use of ‘Anti terrorism’ laws is clearly being abused. The lesson learned here is that if a power can be abused, it will be by government and/or the police service. Government claims of laws being put through Parliament on a ‘just in case’ basis are clearly lies.
  • Why do the police arrest individuals who are clearly not about to run away. I’d be grateful if a legal expert could help. As in the case of Harry Redknapp, the individual could have merely asked the person to attend a particular police station at a set time?
  • Why did the Speaker allow the police to ransack an MP’s office?
  • Why were the police reading twenty year old love letters. This seems like a case of individual tittilation.
  • Since when has Opposition leaks become an arrestable offence. Gordon Brown was a regular at this in his time.

It seems that this was a warning shot to civil servants. But it was also a warning shot to democracy.
