    In praise of Walter Wolfgang

    I watched reports of Mr Wolfgang's treatment, following his ousting from the Labour Party conference the other day with absolute horror. That an 82 year old man, who had been a member of that party longer than Blair has been alive was allowed to be treated in such a way, and, to add insult to injury, was charged under the anti terrorism legislation is an absolute disgrace. The letters pages are filled with the public's disgust at the manner this opponent of Bush and Blair's war has been treated, this letter, from today's Guardian is just one such letter:

    That the trouble came from a lone 82-year-old man who could not contain himself from saying what a large number of people were thinking would be of no relevance for Tony's "volunteers". The ejection and then the absurd use of anti-terrorism law by the police demonstrate how morally deficient and threatened the government feels on this issue.
    Indeed. This absurd use of anti terror legislation also proves what many of us have been saying for some time. The draconian legislation which Blair & Co hope to introduce is not the right thing to do, and undoubtedly, there will be many who will be held under the legislation who will be innocent of any crimes. This appalling incident also shows another thing, which is important to note, the police have now become politicised to the extent that anyone who opposes what this current mob in power say can be branded as terrorists. Absolutely disgraceful. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts
