"…government exists to serve and respect the people and can only do so by trusting the people; that every individual has the right to privacy and that personal information is exactly that – personal; that every individual has a right to justice – access to proper representation, to know the evidence against them, and be punished only if a normal court of law has decided the law has been broken; that every individual has the right to communicate, move about, assemble and express him or herself without the state obstructing, interfering with or monitoring those activities; that government and the state are not the same thing; that good government is only possible when these liberties are respected and government is fully accountable to the people." Excellent article by Henry Porter in today's Observer newspaper about civil liberties under attack in the UK. Link below to the full text.
