Terror response boosts Reid's chances for Labour leadership

LONDON (AFP) - Home Secretary John Reid's handling of last week's alleged terror plot has left him in a good position to run for the leadership of the governing Labour Party once Prime Minister Tony Blair steps down, lawmakers said.
Gordon Brown, finance minister since 1997, has long been seen as the favourite to succeed Blair when he eventually steps down, but Reid, described by the press as a pro-Blair minister, has positioned himself as a leadership candidate with his performance during the past week.

TB knows the Miracle Economy is unwinding as inflation, unemployment, twin deficits and looming HPC all combine to end the biggest borrow and spend binge in UK history. With an alternative Scot in line fresh from his victory over Terrorism and with Gordon frantically spinning the CPI we know it makes sense. Perhaps Reid will combine with his Scottish counterpart in the Tory party (David "Scotty" Cameron*)to introduce a new Superparty that eliminates the need for tiresome elections. :ph34r:

Is this the same John Reid who was once an active member of the Communist Party of GB?

That said, RB is correct. The 'miracle' economy is crumbling around us; a stagnating (soon to be falling) housing market, rising unemployment, retail recession and higher IRs. Serves Brown right for not having the chuutzpah to stand for the leadership sooner. Blair has been lucky enough to reign in an economic sweet spot.

The economy will stuff Brown AND NU Labour. :D

Reid may behind extending Police Powers to summary punishment (abrogating the right to trial--a first since Magna Carta):

Police want 'instant justice' power

The Press Association Tuesday August 15, 08:00 AM

Police want new powers of "instant justice" to combat anti-social behaviour, according to reports.
The Association of Chief Police Officers (Apco) is considering pressing ministers to dispense punishment without the need for a court appearance. Among the proposals are the immediate exclusion of teenagers from town centres at night and to ban streets gang members from associating with each other.
According to The Guardian, Surrey's Assistant Chief Constable Mark Rowley has drawn up plans that he said could prove the modern equivalent of the "mythical clip around the ear from the local bobby".

Gordon, not wanting to be outdone, may be arming his boys at the Revenue with full "Gestatzenpolizei" (Gestapo) powers:

Taxman to get police powers in Revenue's proposals
By Christine Seib
TAX investigators will arrest suspected fraudsters, take fingerprints, bail suspects and search people and premises without police assistance under wideranging new powers being sought by HM Revenue & Customs.
Accountants said yesterday that they feared that the “potentially draconian powers”, which could be introduced as soon as next year, would drive a wedge between the business community and the taxman...../
Gordon Brown
announced in March 2004 that the Inland Revenue and Customs & Exise would merge, raising speculation that the Chancellor was unhappy that the taxman’s softly, softly approach was contributing too little to Britain’s coffers.

http://www.historylearningsite.co.uk/nazi_police_state.htm

In 1936, the Gestapo Law meant that the activities of the Gestapo were free from any review by courts of law. This law effectively meant that the Gestapo became a law unto themselves.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gestapo

The law had been changed in such a way that the Gestapo's actions were not subject to judicial review. Nazi jurist Dr. Werner Best stated, "As long as the [Gestapo] ... carries out the will of the leadership, it is acting legally." The Gestapo was specifically exempted from responsibility to administrative courts, where citizens normally could sue the state to conform to laws.
The power of the Gestapo most open to misuse was "Schutzhaft" or "protective custody" —
a euphemism for the power to imprison people without judicial proceedings,
typically in concentration camps. The person imprisoned even had to sign his or her own Schutzhaftbefehl, the document declaring that the person desired to be imprisoned. Normally this signature was forced by beatings and torture.

I thought we fought WW2 to be free of trial without jury and policing powers in the hands of bureaucrats? Next NuLabout will be placing surveillance cameras on every street corner to watch over every move, hang on.................... :o

If he still retained any of his politics from that time, he might get around to shifting some power and wealth, to reward work rather than ownership....but that's not going to happen under a Nu-labour govenment, unfortunately. Cecil Parkinson was also a member of the CPGB in his youth - didn't seem to influence his politics much when he was in power!

Carrot or stick? Oh lets beat up our children if they don't happen to like the world we've made for them. That's real progress. :o

The forces of darkness appear to be closing in...can't wait to get out of here (UK) before its too late.

The inexorable drift into a form of fascism seems to be the result of most parties when they have been in power too long. It goes to their head. As the miracle economy unwinds Gordon will be forced to use draconian methods to force taxes out of people as the article suggests. What better method than a "Gestapo" type of civil servant empowered with police powers to detain, arrest and interrogate? The elimination of the right to trial is a little more worrying to say the least. My guess is that it would fall foul of the Convention on Human Rights no matter what the nature of the alleged crime. To even think about usurping the long tradition of Magna Carter is worrying though. IMO, its time for a change of government, no matter what mess they make as to continue down the path that seems to be set out for us is not good. Not good at all.
