Small sops to freedom can't hide what Labour has stolen

"[Gordon Brown and Jack Straw] were members of the Blair cabinet which mounted the greatest attack in peacetime on the people's rights and liberties. Having taken what was ours, they now offer it back to us — reduced and compromised — but as though it was somehow their beautiful gift to the people." —Henry Porter

"About identity cards, [Brown] says there will be a 'continuing debate'. You bet there will, Prime Minister, as there will be about extending detention without charge. He has a lot of work to do to persuade many of his backbenchers, never mind the country, that either should be included in 'the next chapter of British liberty'. He will be judged as a Prime Minister not by his grasp of history, but what he does to our country's future." —Andrew Rawnsley
