Only in America? Think on...

Britain is often regarded by American libertarians as the "beta test" area for tyranny.

They note our mushrooming CCTV cameras, draconian victim disarmament laws and NHS death panels.

They take it as a warning: "...if it can happen over can happen over here".

Still, I'm not convinced that Britain always leads the way in terms of repeated boot applications to the human face.

Would any British government department publish a document like the Domestic Extremism Lexicon on the internet?

I think its a case of "horses-for-courses". American fascists like things out-in-the-open. No messing.

Maybe British fascists are just more modest and diffident?
