New Labour challenged

Tim Worstal and the BBC are covering the case of Brian Haw who has lead a continous protest against the Iraq War since June 2001. New Labour, in keeping with it's project of the destruction of all civil liberties, decided that the best way of dealing with a minor peaceful protest was to ban all expressions of political disenchantment in one mile of parliment. Unfortunantly they forgot to make the legislation retrospective, so Mr Haw's protest, having started in 2001, is should be outside of it's scope. This is what lawyers for Mr Haw will say argue anway.

This is classic New Labour. Mix an image problem with a threat to the nation, destroy civil liberties, massive over-reaction, and utter incompetence.
