Safer or not?

The assertion by Peter Hain that Britain would be safer from a terrorist attack under Labour than any other party is just incredible. Putting aside the fact that the invasion of Iraq under a Labour Prime Minister has led to a growth in terrorism and a more dangerous world, to seek party political advantage like this is deplorable. Hain has really overstepped the mark. This is the clearest signal yet that New Labour are to embrace the tactics of fear adopted by George W. Bush in the Presidential elections earlier this month.

The claim by a spokesman that the issue would only become party political if the opposition parties disagreed with the government just adds fuel to the fire. It seems that the Orwellian nightmare of a one party state where dissent will not be tolerated has arrived.
