"Bollocks to Blair" and other worrying things

So the G8 have made some sort of an agreement on climate change. They will 'consider' reducing greenhouse emissions by 50% by 2050. The thing is I had a meeting with someone from Friends of the Earth last night and he told me that the most up-to-date science shows we need to reduce by at least 80% by 2050.

Being positive this country is leading the way with the Climate Change Bill. This could be a good piece of legislation if it's made strong enough.

I'm continually depressed and angry about this country's support for the undemocratic, unislamic and extremist Saudi Arabia and its corrupt arms deals with BAE. How can the government shut down an investigation into corruption in the name of 'security.' Why aren't we more angry about this?

And about the erosion of our freedoms in this country? I'm watching a programme right now about the reductions of freedoms of speech under anti-terrorism legislation. Most worrying (after poor old Walter Wolfgang was manhandled out of the Labour Party conference for saying 'nonsense') is that one person was arrested by the police for having a T-shirt saying 'Bollocks to Blair.' Let's re-cap that: arrested for critising the leader under anti-terror legislation. That's sort of the opposite of democracy isn't it?

It really makes me want to wear a 'Bollocks to Blair' T shirt, though it will only be relevant for another few weeks.
