Russell Brand looks at the new powers brought in by David Cameron to supposedly aid in counter terrorism, but instead, turns us all into suspects.
”David Cameron has announced that a new counter-extremism bill will provide the authorities with new powers to tackle terrorism. The new laws will be fast-tracked through parliament and be part of the Queen’s speech.”
”This is bringing in legislation that to prevent people challenging power.” ~ Russell Brand
What these new laws are suggesting is that if anyone opposes the Government then they can be deemed to be a terrorist. So even if you protest peacefully this is going to work against you and the government will earmark you as a potential terrorist threat. I’m thankful for public voices of reason such as Russell Brand’s because Orwellian laws like this are very worrying to me and if we as a people do not act now before it’s too late then we will find ourselves caught in a police state and no one will be safe from the very people we think are there to protect us – The government.
