The fix is in

The government has accepted the recommendations of the Justice and Electoral Committee on the Video Camera Surveillance (Temporary Measures) Bill. So, the fix is in. The bill will be rushed through under urgency on Parliament's last day, and it will be open slather for the police by next week. As for the public, who were overwhelmingly against the bill, well, its not as if our opinions matter to them, is it?

And then politicians wonder why they are viewed with contempt by the public...
