Anyway, time for a re-cap:
- To combat terrorism, the Clarke-solution is wide, open borders for those trying to sneak in, and 'strengthened' human rights to protect the Islamofascists who succeed in doing so.
- To combat crime, Clarke plans to make prison-life as pleasant as possible, then invite ex-inmates along to five-star, all-you-can-eat state benefit buffet.
- To deal with perfectly law-abiding members of society, we're to be strong-armed into paying for and carrying ID cards.
There's a pattern to all this. If you break our laws, jump our borders, plot terrorism and, in general, screw with Britain as much as you possibly can, Charles Clarke will shower you with greater freedoms and cash rewards. On the other hand, if you happen to be wandering along, minding your own business and harming no one, Clarke intends to restrict your civil liberties and charge you for the privilege.
You know, it really is the damnedest thing. To look at Useless, you'd think he would need help tying his shoelaces and a bib to wear at mealtimes. But, and in his own bungling way, Clarke has actually managed to achieve one of the Holy Grails of leftism.
He's going to reward the guilty and punish the innocent. Amazing!
Go, Rotty! Bite him harder! And I'll hoof him repeatedly in the knackers with a diving boot...
