Beware of Mr Brown. He's after your rights

"It took a few years for Mrs Thatcher to become Thatcherite and for the character of Tony Blair's premiership to become settled and apparent. Brown could go either way. He may become a great Prime Minister or one who reflexively resorts to increasing state powers. It's too early to judge but I won't be surprised if in four or five years the crisis of liberty in this country is much graver than it is today. As things stand, we are leading Western democracies into an authoritarian world of arbitrary state powers and total surveillance of people's movements and personal lives." —Henry Porter
