It’s worse than we thought

The revelation that Poole Council used anti-terrorism laws to spy on a couple who were trying to get their child into a particular school, seems to have been the tip of the iceberg. Apparently there are about one thousand cases each month, whereby these powers are abused in pursuit of such serious crimes as failing to clean up after a dog. The phrase “Give them an inch and they’ll take a mile” comes to mind. Now where did I leave my stockpile of DU?
