Blair has not been the greatest on civil liberties and privacy rights; and I would strongly support a written bill of rights to stop and prevent abuses. Nonetheless, there are some very exaggerated ideas floating around about our being a 'police state', constantly spied on, etc; and frankly, a lot of this originates with elements of our own right-wing press who look for any opportunity to portray the welfare state as a 'left-wing nanny state'; 'political correctness run mad!'; 'Big Brother government controlling us!'; etc. Most of it needs to be taken with quite a few grains of salt.
