Will they listen?

Three votes in three days and the nanny state is in even fuller effect. On Tuesday came ID cards, on Wednesday the total smoking ban and today, probably, comes the "glorifying" terrorism bill.

While MPs at least want to investigate some of the technical mechanisms that might be employed for ID cards (how nice of them), it doesn’t remove any of the risks that have been so lucidly put forward by greater minds than are apparently operating in the Commons.

And when Gordon Brown, our Prime Minister in waiting, can’t even differentiate between biometrics and isometrics, then we must have an inkling that HMG is in trouble?
