Story relates to British cross party commision rejecting Gordon Brown's plans to extend terror suspects detention period without charge.
Now im all for full prevention of terror, but this is a move to the right, further to the right for our supposed left government. It sounds good in
theory but in reality, just tightens the grip they have on the public. It is open to abuse, especiallly as 'Terrorist' is os subjective. It could
include regular terrorists, little scrotes who have junk like The Anarchists Cookbook, regular people who have accessed 'suspect' websites, anyone
with animal rights links, or anyone they want really, so long as their is any sort of 'link' with something that can be manipulated to look sus.
I would be less cynical, if it werent for things like ID Cards to be introduced, and the taking of DNA from all new-born babies at birth for a
database. Its a dangerous foundation to start to lay, and Im glad its not going through. Yet.
Anyone agree? Anyone think this is barmy liberalism? I'd be interested to know
