So much for Nick Clegg’s claim that liberties lost under the Labour government would be given back.
Having asked us to put our faith in politics again, I did so with an open heart and hoped politician’s will at last live up to their potential.
I was particularly keen to hear about the ‘28 days detention without charge’ issue.
In my humble opinion this is the greatest assault on our civil liberties in a hundred years.
How dare the state lock anyone up for 28 days without any charge or any explanation for doing so?
Stop using the terrorism excuse. If a terrorist is a terrorist then the evidence should be clear to see. If there is no evidence to imply one is a terrorist then it’s odd’s on favorite one isn’t.
This was the litmus test for me. The coalition government’s decision to keep the status quo for the next six months is a bitter disappointment.It looks like its politics as normal to me.
