Police squander our money attacking peace campaigner

John Catt is a political campaigner against war. He is 90 years old. The cops have squandered a fortune pursuing him through the courts for their right to keep surveillance records on someone who has committed no crime. The Supreme Court has ruled that the police are well within their rights to use anti-terror legislation against a political opponent with no link to terrorism.

This is the final nail in the coffin of the pretense that anti-terror laws are not used against the government't domestic opponents who are pursuing peaceful lawful protest.

The main purpose of the anti-terror legislation is to terrorise anyone who criticises the government's international policy which could charitably be described as brute force and ignorance.

Long live John Catt. Don't let the bastards grind you down.
