Being all the way up here in Aberdeen, it's not easy for me to take to the streets to protest against this government.

But if I was in London today, I'd be risking arrest to protest about this. Brian Haw is not involved in organised crime. He's not a terrorist or a danger to this country. He is simply exercising his democratic right to protest against the policies of this government. That Blair's government has gone to such lengths to prevent him from doing so tells you everything you need to know about their attitude to our fundamental democratic freedoms.

Is it just me or is it very nearly time to start building the barricades?

What hypocrisy from Blair! He was recently using Brian Haw as an example of how he is not clamping down on civil liberties.
