Ex-spymaster says we’re living in a police state

Stella Rimington, former head of MI5, says Britain is becoming a police state:

A former head of MI5 has accused the government of exploiting the fear of terrorism to restrict civil liberties.

Dame Stella Rimington, 73, said people in Britain felt as if they were living “under a police state” because of the fear being spread by ministers. In an interview with Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia and published in the Daily Telegraph, she also attacks the approach taken by the United States.
