Cry Freedom!

I missed this and am grateful to Conservative Home:
Tony Blair is to be awarded a £100,000 Liberty medal by the National Constitutional Center based in Washington for his role in "bringing liberty to people around the world".

Hmm. Let us note, inter alia:

ID cards

Control Orders

28 day detention (and wanted longer)

Random stop and search


Clamping down on free speech (especially around Parliament)

Innocent people on the DNA database

Trial without jury

The Civil Contingencies Act (the most overbearing legislation ever passed by our Parliament) "

Really, you couldn't make it up
