Apparently an evaluation of the infamous Ipred law is under way. About bloody time you might say. But hold your horses, it will take an astonishing three (3!!!) years for it to be done. The politicians have bought themselves three years where they will have to do nothing about this judicial abonimation ("we can't do anything until the evaluation report is ready...in 2012"). Three years of repeated miscarriages of justice, of lives ruined, before coming to an obvious conclusion:
Threats and oppression work in the short term. If you put a gun to someone's head and tell them to do something, most likely they will do it. But is it the right thing to do? And shouldn't the government of a so-called democracy be protecting it's citizens rather than protecting the ancient business models of unscrupulous, multinational corporations at the expense of it's citizens?
