Well good old Blair's government have created a new offence almost every day since they came into power.

http://news.independent.co.uk/uk/pol...cle1219484.ece

"Tony Blair's government has created more than 3,000 new criminal offences during its nine-year tenure, one for almost every day it has been in power.

The astonishing tally brought accusations last night of a "frenzied approach to law-making" that contrasts with falling detection rates and climbing levels of violent crime.

The figures emerged as police chiefs disclosed they were considering asking ministers for a set of new measures to allow them to impose "instant justice" for antisocial behaviour.

The 3,000-plus offences have been driven on to the statute book by an administration that has faced repeated charges of meddling in the everyday lives of citizens, from restricting freedom of speech to planning to issue identity cards to all adults."

Its so farcical one can only laugh either that or live a miserable life in fear of prosecution! many of these laws can only be described as invasive to our lives, next they will be telling us what to wear and making it an offense to wear certain colours because there not politically correct

A Rebel tune for the conscious
