New legislation will ban protests around Parliament. Once again New Labour is scared. Combined with Tony Blair's plans to rebuild 10 Downing Street so that most deliveries do not come to the front door and "Blair Force One" it adds up to an arrogant individual who seems to think he's a President.
The right to protest in a democracy is fundamental. Polticians should not be allowed to run away from those they do not agree with. The pathetic attempt to hide behind concerns of security is absurd. Once again New Labour has shown itself to be even yellower than the Liberal Democrats.
