42 Days - Dictatorship by Stealth
Tomorrow our "respected" and "popular" Prime Minister will lead Nanny's campaign to impose a 42 day detention period without charge, on people that the state "believe" to be terrorists.
We are told that this is for our own protection, and that the law will only be used against terrorists.
Well, Nanny would say that wouldn't she?
Question: If the state really has the evidence to support their belief that an individual is a terrorist, why does it not charge that person within say 7 days, 14 days or 28 days?
Answer: the state does not have the evidence.
Sir John Major wrote in the Times recently that the proposal would aid the terrorists, and help them recruit more people to their cause. Major went on to say that Nanny's case is bogus, and little more than scaremongering.
He was quoted in The Times:
"If we are seen to defend our own values in a manner that does violence to them, then we run the risk of losing those values. Even worse, if our own standards fall it will serve to recruit terrorists more effectively than their own propaganda could ever hope to do.
The Government has introduced measures to protect against terror. These go beyond anything contemplated when Britain faced far more regular – and no less violent – assaults from the IRA. The justification of these has sometimes come close to scaremongering."
Sir John said that Labour was creating "an intrusive State with authoritarian tendencies.
This is not a United Kingdom I recognise and Parliament should not accept it."
Sir John should read the stories on this site over the last four years, an intrusive authoritarian state is exactly what Labour is all about!
Sir Ken Macdonald, QC, who as Director of Public Prosecutions would have a key role in authorising extended periods of detention, said that the 42 day power was not needed.
Lord Falconer has promised to lead a revolt in the Lords if the bill passes the Commons.
Lord Goldsmith, QC, (Bliar's Attorney General) has told The Times that he will oppose the measures if they reach the Lords.
"I remain of the view that no extension is necessary or justified."
MI5 have kept well out of it.
Even the police believe that the proposals are unworkable.
That isn't stopping Brown from trying to bribe people, with our money, to go along with his monstrous plan. Innocent detainees would be entitled to claim up to £3K for each day spent in jail; so that's alright then!
The man driving this proposal is an authoritarian control freak, who fears individuality and freedom of action.
His reputation, health, credibility and party have been destroyed by his own actions and delusions. He and the Labour party are nothing more than an animated corpse.
Britain is being sleepwalked into dictatorship by a corpse, Britain does not deserve to be run by a corpse.
Let us put this corpse out of our misery once and for all!
