1984 anyone?

Has anyone else noticed a disturbing echo of the world of Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four in the title of the new Ministry of Justice?

After all, we already have Newspeak. Look how Bush and Blair have managed to turn "Freedom" and "Democracy" into dirty words. And we already have Doublethink - remember the sexed-up dossier?

"War is peace
Freedom is slavery
Ignorance is strength"
