Blairs 90 days is for people who "may" be terrorists - to try and secure information on them pertaining to illegal activities. He was asked in the Commons when was the last time it took 90days (or more than 14) to secure evidence for a conviction against a potential terrorist - he did'nt answer but rather spoke around it.
On the same day as the 90 day vote he started to put forward legislation which will allow on the run terrorists from N.Ireland to come back and not serve a single day in prison. How you like those apples?
While life in N.ireland is improved from what it was terrorists simply give their groups new names and carry on as normal. In a few years time if the US lets Al Quadea's political wing have power due to lots of people voting for them how would you feel? Or letting militant terrorists out of prison before sentences were served? How about it being illegal in places not to fly your own countries flag? Welcome to N.Ireland - you could be next.
Personal freedom is being eroded by the many acts and government legislation being brought in - whats it like in the US - is there any erosion there?
A lot of stuff lately is very reminiscent of Hitler spreading fear in Germany. Terror, fear - praying on peoples emotions to push through dodgy laws which will really only adversly affect a minority grouping.
GITMO? Enemy combatants? Have many being released without charge?
The anti-terror act in the UK has so far managed to detain a mother wheeling her pram and baby because she was on a bicycle path and an old man who heckled a politician at a Labour party conference.
In closing i'd like to say kiss my ass.
