"Journalist Sam Delaney has a hunch that we are living in a 'Big Brother state'. He believes since New Labour came to power, over 3000 new offences have been created that can get you 'nicked'; the police have greater powers of arrest and every day there is a new initiative to monitor ordinary people.
Sam embarks on a mission to help those worst affected by this clampdown on civil liberties to fight back – to defend long held freedoms. He decides to assemble a bunch of New Labour 'criminals' – ordinary people who have been arrested for heinous new 'crimes'. With the help of a top criminal barrister, he tries to find ways in which they can do what they want without getting into trouble with the Law.
For a start, what’s wrong with a T-shirt which says 'Bollocks to Blair' - is it is the word "bollocks", or the fact that people are criticising the Prime Minister. There’s only one way to find out – take a box of the offending items to a public event and see whether anyone objects to wearing them. Or, perhaps, they’d prefer Sam’s alternative T-shirts, one saying - 'Testicles To Tony'.
Next stop is the Shadow Attorney General, Dominic Grieve to seek his advice on a range of slogans that Sam would like to parade around Westminster. He’s advised that they could all get him arrested – but the Tories top spokesman on law and order sees no problem with the slogans, however provocative or bizarre – even one that states 'Cameron Blows Goats'.
Sam eventually ends up in the former communist-bloc Albania – once notorious for its hardline stance on civil liberties. He drafts in a group of Albanians to protest outside their Parliament on our behalf displaying banners saying ‘Free Protest for the UK.’ Against expectations, there’s no problem – the police don’t object, no one gets arrested and the demonstration passes without any incident – a far cry from what happens outside the mother of parliaments back in Britain."
