The UK in 10 Years Time?

I did blog a while back that the UK will be like Russia was just after the fall of the Iron Curtain: a lawless state run by the "mafia".

This article gives you an indication of what goes on inside Russia at the moment. Reporters are killed, people are held hostage, countries are invaded. All on the whim of a government that seems complicit in some of the criminals acts. Whether its a sign of a government that has had to get tough on big businesses that avoid paying their dues or cracking down on criminal activity but has gone too far or a government that has been taken over by those original criminal elements, I don't know.

But I do know that making our Police force responsible for claiming extra taxes in the form of new offenses dreamed up on a whim enforced by fixed penalty notices and using the courts to enforce the same, combined with a Parliament that thinks criminal fidling of expenses is acceptable, topped by a government that is spending billions more then it earns, is a recipe for exactly the same sort of things to happen here as in Russia.

It may take a while. It might never happen. But it is a risk and us the public need to be vigilant and ready to oppose it, for the sake of our children and grandchildren.
