42 days

Posted .

So, it went through the Commons, after some wheeler-dealing, and now has to get through the Lords.

At the risk of sounding like someone writing to The Times, I am appalled and disgusted that it’s got this far. There is no justification for holding members of the public for so long. A week sounds about right to me, any more than that is simply wrong. Whatever happened to “innocent until proven guilty”?

Right now, I’m ashamed that I ever voted Labour, and I never will do again.

    ‘Land of Hope and Glory, Mother of the Free…’ Oh, wait, scratch that, we can now be locked up without charge for 42 days, just because someone suggests we might have terrorist links.

    42 may be the meaning of life, the universe and everything, but it certainly does not mean freedom.
