To Orwell Today,
Our retiring UK prime minister Tony Blair will leave behind him an Orwellian legacy that has dramatically changed the English community. Since his term of office he has dramatically changed the landscape and ways of British life unlike any previous leader.
His Orwelian legacy has not only included a dependance on CCTV to replace police presence on our streets, longer opening hours of pubs n clubs which has resulted in a surge of drunkeness, unruly behaviour amongst our young people and a drain on our hospitals at weekends, a reliance on credit so that we are trillions of pounds in debt, spiralled house prices etc. We now have the introduction of new police powers to stop, search 'n arrest members of the public without any proof of suspicion under new terorrrism legislation, plus there's new plans to arrest 'n order psychiatric treatment for individuals, without trial, criminal charges or evidance of a crime being committed, to protect VIPs such as MPs etc.
The speed with which these powers are being implemented is remarkable. Britain IS now an ORWELLIAN SOCIETY.
Yes, Orwell's nightmare is our reality.
All the best,
