Now that I am retired having been many years a magistrate with a long awareness of the declining freedoms enjoyed by the ordinary citizen and a corresponding fear of the big brother state`s ever increasing encroachment on civil liberties I hope that my personal observations within these general parameters will be of interest to those with an open mind. Having been blogging with this title for many years against the rules of the Ministry of Justice my new found freedom should allow me to be less inhibited in these observations.

Dispersal Orders are not on the public`s agenda. They were introduced late last year. Unsurprisingly to those acquainted with the police enforcement of their powers at a level which is often at the extreme limits of their authority if not in excess of said authority it seems that a familiar pattern is being observed.
Salami slicing of actual civil liberties, crying wolf by some libertarians, panic over security leaking and real terrorist threats are reducing the concept privacy only to what should be expected in the house`s smallest room.
