Not-at-all super ASBOs

Tim Worstall tells it like it is on the government’s latest wheeze, the ‘Violent Offender Order’ (aka ‘Super-ASBO’) that can be issued to anyone whom the police believe might commit a violent offence.

So, you’ve actually done nothing wrong at all [] and the State, on the balance of probablities, including hearsay evidence, can insist that you move out of your house, move towns, probably lose your job….wonderful isn’t it?

They ought to issue an uber-ASBO to everyone at birth so that they can dispense with the so last-year hassle of fair trials.
