"Blair's Britain"......or "The Death of Free Speech in the 21st Century"

Tried to find a link to this last night but actualsean posted a link to a story on his LJ so that made things easier finding the one I wanted plus reading about other infringements....

"I pass protesters every day at Downing Street, and believe me, you name it, they protest against it. I may not like what they call me but I thank God they can. That's called freedom" - Tony Blair, April 2002

"Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers" - Universal Declaration of Human Rights, article 19

Not in Britian anymore it seems.......
