"Patriot Act" Measure Rejected in Britain

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day
Thou art more like the third reich.

Seriously, when a prime minister starts telling the countries law makers that it is the duty of every one of them to vote for his police state measures, what the washington Post describes as his Patriot Act, and appeals over their heads to the sun reading rabble, we are getting very close to a putsch.

A little bomb somewhere dangerous and we will have a state of emergency and no more parliament.

Bush ran away from something like that in the last couple of weks. But will the very scary cornered rodent Blair go for it?

: "During a heated exchange in Parliament earlier Wednesday, Blair declared that voting for the measure was 'the duty of every member of this house.' As he spoke, Conservatives shouted 'police state' at Blair, in a session that was testy even by the raucous standards of the House of Commons."
