Sir: Labour's pre-election promises included undertakings to reduce road-building, oppose live animal exports and (with parliamentary approval) outlaw hunting with hounds. It has now been disclosed that the police are about to set up a new squad, drawing on the talents of Special Branch and MI5, to target protesters who attend demonstrations against (you guessed it) road building, lived exports and hunting. It seems that many of the people who put their trust in Labour and helped to put Labour in power have not only been betrayed but are now to be persecuted into the bargain.
