Go Wolfie! September 29, 2005

Posted by BiB in Uncategorized.

How laughable that veteran peace campaigner Walter Wolfgang was detained under the Terrorism Act – yes, Terrorism Act – for trying to return to the arena where he had committed the grave terrorist offence of shouting, “Nonsense,” during a speech by Jack Straw. I won’t go in for alarmism and say, “Look where this is going. Any expression of dissent is going to be able to be smothered by this legislation.” I still believe that the UK’s democratic credentials are safe. But how utterly ludicrous that the word terrorism should come into the equation when the crime was to dare to spoil the perfect New Labour show. Must the performance really be so smooth that one word of criticism – and from a supporter, remember – must be snuffed out? Never could the words politically correct apply more fittingly.
