Looks really bad when you list it all down and you're right, the Tories wont do any better, if anything they could make it a lot worse as they are just as authoritarian under the skin as New Labour, perhaps even more so.

I'm nicking this list for my blog because I am a lazy git and I am exposing the labour loon standing in my neck of the woods for what he is.
