    Even when they aren't in power the labour government can screw us over.

    Wait, it tl;dr'd me, but the general gist I got was "ISPs are f*%&ing over pirates." Is this true?

    The entire UK is nothing but a camera filled prison. Pretty soon they're going to come after this place.

    Oh please, "terrorism" is nothing more than a government terror device to scare everyone into giving them more money and control the country.

    Being asked to vote is just like being asked to choose which bloke you want to fuck you up the arse, which is why I don't vote. Fuckin' hate the UK and if I coul afford it and didn't have so many family ties I would consider telling this place to kiss my arse, and fucking off

    God knows how he managed to relate it with Internet issues. But nonetheless, I'm pretty sure Virgin tried something like this anyway a few years ago and I don't think they did an awful lot.

    And yes, jerome was talking about terrorism anyway.

    He's refering to how terrosim, has been used as a justification of the erosion of civil liberties in the UK.

    Terrorism has been around a lot longer than Bin Laden, he certainly didn't found it.

    I like sparking discussions. Yes, yes I am, but trying to discuss it fairly with anyone on the Internet is impossible so I tend to not bother.

    I hear in London there is one camera for every 5 people.
