Spot on

A letter in today's Melbourne Age:

I smell a rat

"Oh, how convenient for John Howard's push for draconian legislation. A real terrorist threat. Maybe. But not sufficient a threat to warn anyone or raise the nation's security status — just enough of a threat to rush through legislation, the day after the horse race that delayed it. I can't see a burning Reichstag, but I can sure smell a rat. Is there no one who can explain to Lance Corporal Beazley that hard cases make bad law?"

David Langsam, Flemington Hill

At least one journalist is questioning the media’s complicity in the latest terrorist "threat." And guess what? She doesn't work for a major news organisation.

Unf-cking believable. I mean are people really that numb... And is the media and Opposition that limp that they can seriously let Howard get away with what is such an obvious bluff.

People just don't realise how hard fought the rights we're kissing away have been to gain. When you go to some place like Israel or Pakistan then you begin to appreciate it a little more. But I fear we'll only really guage the loss when it's too late.
