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.

The major political parties were truly glad that matters relating to this country`s foreign policies were totally ignored by commentators.  All that is except immigration whilst that is only a result of our losing the abilities to govern ourselves which is the mammoth in the political room.  It is to be hoped that the forthcoming referendum will illuminate the underlying root of our relationship with the E.U. and not merely those examples which make the headlines. 

With American security services climbing the wall over recent happenings in the Senate we too are approaching a crunch in the argument of individual freedom and freedom from terrorism exemplified perhaps by the fact that the organisation Cage  argued by some as an apologist for terrorist activity, is seeking judicial review against the Charities Commission.   This government like its predecessor  tries to shift the security curtain to landlords and employers because of its own inadequacies.  The irrestible force and the immoveable object come to mind.
