The Freedom Quiz

If you're not concerned about our freedoms now, you ought to be. Perhaps you think things still aren't too bad. Take the Freedom Quiz, and see if your perceptions are still the same afterwards.

Then have a good read of the Liberal Democrats' new draft Freedom Bill.

I quote Chris Huhne in the Guardian's Comment is free:

"There has always been a problem for civil libertarians. The sacrifices of freedoms made by successive governments often seem small, particularly when they are pushed through at times of panic about terrorism. Each time, the government argues that you only need to give up a modest amount of freedom or rights to win greater security. And what could be more free than life itself? Yet the cumulative effects of this salami-slicing have now become deeply corrosive to the free spirit of a civil society."

Members of the public are invited to discuss and debate. There is also an opportunity to sign the Freedom Bill petition. So what are you waiting for?
