Gordon Brown\’s Extension of Civil Liberties

Err:

Gordon Brown is planning to put the opposition parties on the spot by doubling the time that terrorist suspects can be held without charge from 28 days to 56 days.

I thought he said he was going to extend them, not curtail them?

  1. The scariest part of that is that it is going “to put the opposition parties on the spot by doubling the time”. It suggests the other parties will be thinking, “damn, why didn’t we come up with that?”. Fuckin’ fascists. Four weeks is already too long if you ask me.

  2. Didn’t the new Home Office minister admit just the other day that, so far, there had been no need of extended times…?

  3. Only ten years ago it was only 2 days dention without charge, extendable to 5 with the permission of the Home Secretary. Now it is 28 days, extendable to forever under house arrest with the permission of the Home Secretary.
