Spy Chief's Trying To Stir Up Trouble, Trumpets McNulty

Tony McNulty claims Stella Rimington's assertion that we're heading towards - if not already in - a police state is 'abject nonsense' which is 'playing into the hands of our enemies'.
Hmmm. He would say that, wouldn't he, being that he's been instrumental in creating the police state in the first place, as a cursory look at his voting record shows: 

Voted very strongly against a transparent Parliament
Voted moderately for introducing a smoking ban
Voted strongly for introducing ID cards
Voted very strongly for Labour's anti-terrorism laws
Voted very strongly for the Iraq war
Voted very strongly against an investigation into the Iraq war

So, in other words, he's against making Parliament accountable, for an illegal war, against an investigation into the illegal war, and pro tagging the population as if they were a herd of bloody cattle and throwing them in the clink without charge. And we're supposed to accept what he says instead of the sage (albeit tardy) counsel of arguably one of the most intellectually able - Head of Intelligence - women in the country.

(He also voted strongly for the hunting ban and for introducing student top-up fees. Sewer.)

  2. The intensity with which he pushes the party line, despite all evidence to the contrary fundamentally contradicting all that he has to say, totally unnerves me, tho!
