And now, via NeueArbeit Macht Frei, your humble Devil sees that Huhne has once more taken up his pen to lecture us on civil liberties.
The Liberal Democrats are determined to resist the slow death by a thousand cuts of our hard-won British liberties. George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four was a warning, not a blueprint. Yet the Big Brother society that he satirised is growing before our eyes. Our forebears who fought so hard for the rights we have had stripped away would be shocked at what we've lost.
That is why we have published our freedom bill, detailing how we intend to roll back the draconian laws passed by successive Labour and Conservative administrations.
Well, isn't that a coincidence? For, as you might remember, LPUK organised a campaign to send a copy of Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four to every MP in the House.
Participants were urged to send a copy of the book to an MP, and inscribe it with the words "this book is a warning, not an instruction manual".
Isn't it nice to see that Chris Huhne seems to have taken the message on board. It's a pity that he didn't feel the need to attribute it, and it's even more of a pity that he is about as libertarian as Stalin, but "slowly, slowly, catchee monkey", as they say.
Although, they never seem to say what you should do once you have caught the monkey. In the case of Chris Huhne, however, I think that we should just set fire to him. And his fucking monkey.*
