Opposition pressed on terror plan

close

Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

The former Metropolitan Police Commissioner also said many critics of the Prevention of Terrorism Bill were “naive” about the threat faced.

The opposition have wanted to tell the Government what they would do for some time, in the appropriate place and in the appropriate manner – that is, in a House of Commons debate. The Government have consistently denied them this opportunity by ramming this legislation through like there’s no tomorrow. So for the Government to come out and make demands and accusations like these is misleading and dishonest. And it also lets us see who’s really playing politics with terror.
