Village Hampden: The War On Habeas Corpus

Village Hampden continues to track New Labours war on Civil Liberties:
"the Government wants to create a new offence of glorifying terrorism and then has the front to make concerned noises about the restriction of the right of free speech that this involves. If this goes through, we could in theory see students being prosecuted for wearing Che Guevara t-shirts. "
They have already banned slogan t-shirts from within a mile of Westminster so more stupidity of this kind is not unexpected.
