"I've got a team watching you, you bitch!"
Mr Tony "Mad Dog" McNulty, a useless police minister in the Home Office, said: "I have enormous respect for the work and experience of Dame Stella Rimington but I think on these revelations about a Police State she is totally and utterly wrong to speak out.
I will be reviewing our tapes and videos from Dame Stella's home to see if we can bang her up for anything. Loose talk, misguided talk, by informed commentators such as Stella Rimington, talking about a police state in any regard in the UK is dangerous because the public might wake up to what we have been up to.
Even to use such language so loosely plays in to the hands of our enemies. Of course we should have a full and frank debate in secret behind closed doors, but to let the public know what is going on does not help the debate at all."
