Oh wait, did I say "becoming"? Nope, too late, we're already there.

Don't believe me? Just check out this site.
10 signs the UK is a police state:

I really can't believe what this country has turned in to! Some of the things on that list is just completely Orwellian, straight out of 1984, although even Orwell couldn't think of something as twisted as X-ray cameras. Surely that would be dangerous anyway?

Having to apply to protest in London, rubbish tags, national DNA database, being able to question and detain ANYONE they suspect of a crime? It's amazing that the government can get away with such things. Of course "it's all for our own safety".

I swear the government must thank Heaven when things like the recent Glasgow car fire incident happen, makes it so much easier for them to manipulate the public with fear and introduce these sorts of things without too much fuss being made.

The worse thing is that no-one else seems to be concerned by any of this! I sometimes feel like I am going mad when I mention this stuff to people and they don't seem to care. If I had a penny for every time someone said "you don't have to worry if you're innocent, it's only the guilty who get concerned by things like this!" Seriously, what the fuck!?!

I cant believe people actually get taken in by all this terrorism paranoia the government are always forcing down our throats. They might just as well start writing in capital letters "IF YOU DISAGREE WITH THESE LAWS THEN YOU *MUST* BE A TERRORIST, OR TERRORIST SYMPATHISER!" on all their new laws, and the sad thing is people would still believe them!

I don't know about anyone else but I'd rather take a risk and live free, than live a safe life in a government controlled cage. I mean for fuck sake, you've got a MUCH higher chance of being killed crossing the road than in some terrorism related incident.
