"... Except in the USSR the state would pay for it..."

When are people going to realise that the public fund the state! Thus it doesn't matter what way they come up with to pay for it, the people will foot the bill at the end of the day.

All the cost for nil benefit and potential abuse of the powers it gives to the state in the future.

Think Hitler, think Stalin and don't be so naive to think that could never happen in Britain. The odds are it will happen one day, maybe to your kids if not you.

The State is supposed to serve us, not the other way round!
