Great idea

Today's amazing policy idea:
Stop and search anyone. With no suspicion. Presumably because it worked sooooo well before.
John Reid is due to quit in a few weeks. Can he not be forced to shut up in the intervening period so we don't have to put up with any more of his rubbish like this?
Meanwhile, Whitehall wants us all on a DNA database. Given that witnesses to crimes who are not under any suspicion are routinely added, as are suspects who are later released, with no chance of ever being removed, it's a logical step. Well, I say logical, but only from the illogical standpoint at which we find ourselves now.

I don't know if the Gordon Brown premiership will be much different to Blair's. It can't possibly be worse. Roll on July 27.

EDIT: Again, Henry Porter puts it better than I can.
