Cameron pledges to repeal repulsive Labour laws.

Best to call a spade a spade David.

One single “repeal” Bill expected to be used to dismantle the “control” state as Cameron prepares war against Big Brother.

The Tory leader yesterday warned Labour has created a ‘control state’ with sweeping powers to intrude into people’s private lives.

Officials now have more than 1,000 reasons to knock on doors and demand to enter homes, he said, making the UK more like a ‘foreign dictatorship or bygone age’ than a modern democracy.

Mr Cameron also attacked ID cards, blanket stop-andsearch powers, creeping extensions to the national DNA database, extradition abroad without evidence of wrongdoing and the erosion of the right to trial by jury.

I wish he would just call it as it is, a creeping police state created by the Blair/Brown regime under the guise of TWAT (The War Against Terror), the real hidden terror was actually buried in the sub sections of the Bills and Acts processed through Parliament.

He added that a Tory government would seek to rebalance the relationship between the individual and the state by opening up information held by the Government.

Err…opening up? Why not take the bull by the horns and destroy most of it?

As with most things in politics, the proof will be in the eating of the pudding, if he achieves such measures (probably against the advice of various high ranking police officers) in the first few weeks of government then great, but I’m not holding my breath.
