According to BBC News, the Lord Chancellor when talking about the new terror laws said that people ‘attacking the values of the West’ would be imprisoned for ‘long periods’.

Would be interesting to know, what the Lord Chancellor and this whole British government mean by “values of the West”. On an almost daily basis we recognise manifestations of these “values of the West”, such as privatisation of the commons, protection of globalised corporatism, a democracy of the white male upper-class where minorities are denied their democratic rights, and the not so subtle brainwash of consumerism to name only a few (and not to forget Britain’s “right” for a rebate on EU contributions and the millions of taxpayers’ money spent for the royals).

If that’s the “values of the West” I’d rather be somewhere else … soon!
