Opposition pressed on terror plan

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.
