+ - Blair pushes new UK anti-terror law before leaving

Submitted by CanarDuck
CanarDuck (717824) writes "Tony Blair wrote a column published in the Sunday Times in which he announces new anti-terror laws reinforcing the powers of the police. This comes mere weeks before Blair will step down from his position as UK prime minister. From the piece: "[The current legislation is] much weaker than we wanted, perpetually diluted by opposition amendments, constantly attacked on civil liberty grounds.[...] We have chosen as a society to put the civil liberties of the suspect, even if a foreign national, first. I happen to believe this is misguided and wrong." "

How often I found where I should be going only by setting out for somewhere else. -- R. Buckminster Fuller
