Oh that's fine then to remove our Civil Liberties and freedoms and go against the the UN Charter on Human Rights - Now I get it


I suppose you also think its a good thing that the police are locking whole tower blocks in their homes and smashing car windows to drag people out of their cars to check ID - Wonder why that sounds so familiar - Oh Yeah East Germany - But that was OK as well yeah?



Its a very slippery slope when Governments take such powers and actions, especially when most of the populace are either too dumb or too scared to do or say anything about it.



I also hope you are using the word "Democracy" in the loosest sense of the word.

and the land where Covid tests are quite low compared to other democracies.

low test numbers = low infections rate
