Book Description: Imagine a bonkers world where the police hires 16-year olds, where two spilled crisps will cost you GBP80, where councils employ child informers, where a baby is refused a passport because it is photographed topless, where a woman faces jail for singing to her children, where a coma victim is blasted with police Tasers.

We claim to live in a democracy and yet we let the government walk all over us. We swallow ministerial statements on terrorism, bankers and knife crime as if they were gospel and we allow ourselves to be filmed and followed wherever we go.: Today, the State has carte blanche to read our emails and track us on-line. They can tap our telephones, enter our homes, bug our offices and sift through our bins.: Tough anti-terror laws ensure `bin criminals' and school catchment cheats are punished while on-the-spot fines keep us all in line. These days we need police approval to protest and will shortly need permission to leave the country. : Our biometric data - said to protect us from terrorists and organised crime - is openly shared with sinister bio-tech industries. And, while billions are wasted on government databases, they can't keep the most basic information secure.: Our children are demonised and isolated from society. We moan that they `hang about' our streets and then make it next to impossible for adults to supervise their hobbies and sports activities. After more than a decade of New Labour, more teenagers are leaving school without even the most basic qualifications. : We treat our returning soldiers worse than the Victorians to the point where they must rely on charity for their welfare rather than receive sufficient help from a grateful State. Our Iraq and Afghan veterans now form the largest single group by profession in our over-crowded jails.: And yet we tolerate politicians on the take and don't bat an eyelid when they champion ID cards and then draw additional pay from companies bidding for the contract. Hello David Blunkett. : Knee-jerk politicians have doomed our traditional way of life, rights and freedoms. We have joined the ranks of the repressive regimes with our control orders, house arrest, detention without trial, and secret evidence and secret trials. What were once seen as intolerable affronts to human dignity are now regarded as necessary tools in the fight for freedom in 21st Century Britain.: It may all be for our own good or it might just be the end of British democracy and the death of common sense.: If the government are not on our side, we really should ask Whose side are they on?: Alan Pearce See all Product Description Size: 13.5 x 2 x 20.4 cm. 224 pages.

Details of the book
Whose Side are They On? How Britain's Bonkers Government Is Coming After You

Collection of unbelievably funny and infuriating things that have happened to people when officials whip out the rule book, including the man fined $80 for dropping 2 crisps. When Britain is governed by 240,000 regulations, it's inevitable that some of them are mad.
