'New Labour cannot be trusted the citizen's freedoms. Remember the old chap at the Labour Party Conference, he whispered 'rubbish' while Jack Straw was talking and guess what he was thrown out of conference, detained, ruffed up and yes you can guess they used anti-terrorist legislation to defend this chap's demonstration of freedom of expression to be surpressed - give New Labour control over my hard won freedoms, never, they are totally self seeking and do not give a fig for freedom.' [sic]

And yes, that is correct, the 82 year-old was arrested under terrorist legislation, which shows that the police can't be trusted with these powers. Politicians should expect to be heckled, it's part of the job. They should not be using the police to keep the public at bay like that.
