Labour's war on Civil Liberties

The BBC has also picked up the story that Labour is continuing with the steady destruction of Civil Liberties that has been the hallmark of it's reign. Despite nobody being held anywhere near the current 28 day maximum, four times the maximum time that anybody could be detained without charge when Labour came into office, they still want more. So once again 90 days detention without charge is on the cards. What is especially scarly now is that Labour have also made all offences arrestable, so you can now be held for 28 days without knowing if you are going to get charged or not for such high crimes as being suspected of parking on a double yellow line.

Wow, the Beeb has noticed after only nine years. They're getting quite slick these days.
