John Reid - All Your Freedoms Are Belong To Us

"People shouldn't be afraid of their government...governments should be afraid of their peoples" - V

Terror 'may force freedom curbs'
Britain might have to modify its freedoms in the short term in order to prevent their "misuse and abuse" by terrorists, John Reid has said.

He conceded that was never an easy request, but it was up to everyone to ask "what price our security, at what cost can we preserve our freedoms".

The UK faced its "most sustained period of severe threat since the end of World War II", the home secretary warned.

He urged people from all communities to help by being vigilant.
This does not feel me with joy.

I am not giving up my freedoms to no one Mr. Reid thank you very much. So I refer to a quote which has stood the test of time

"They that can give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."- Benjamin Franklin
