Sarandon: 'This is 1984'

Ireland Online | April 5 2006

Movie star Susan Sarandon is terrified US society is mirroring George Orwell's chilling book 1984 - because individual rights are being trampled on.

The Thelma & Louise star was stunned by the "fraudulent" 2000 election of George W Bush - and is keen for the country's next election to be closely monitored, according to website The Scoop.

She says: "I believe our next election should be monitored by international entities, just like it happened in Haiti and Iraq.

"The last one was an embarrassment. Everybody knew there was fraud, but nothing was done about it. In some states there were more votes than people able to vote.

"I think we've never been as close to George Orwell's 1984 as before.

"We live in a society where individual rights and legality are definitely threatened and that's scary."
