Reid on the attack in missing terror suspects row

Link: Guardian Unlimited | Special reports | Reid on the attack in missing terror suspects row.

How long are we going to allow John Reid and his like to get away with such political scams? THEY introduced control orders; a form of house arrest. Having taken these shocking powers they have used them incompetently. No surprise there.

We should be glad that this Government is as incompetent as it is illiberal. If your Government has oppressive powers, your only hope is that it is poor at using them. However, surely only New Labour would dare use its incompetence as a reason to demand even more power?
