An often witty, but first and foremost angry, look at the erosion of the UK's civil liberties since we voted in Tony Blair's New Labour back in 1997. Showing a climate of fear and paranoia, whipped up by a rabidly partial media, that has enabled an insidious political erosion of people's basic rights and with commentary from, amongst others, Tony Benn and Mark Thomas, 'Taking Liberties' is a timely, fascinating and frightening indictment of the transparent reality behind the Saville-suited baby-hugging act that substitutes for idealism in modern politics.
