Tim Worstall: Brown and Civil Liberties

Link: Tim Worstall: Brown and Civil Liberties.

Tim hits the target with total precision here. Why can't the media make comments like this?

Lord Carlile, who was appointed by the Government to monitor its anti-terrorism legislation, said: "There is no stronger evidence needed for more demanding controls than disappearances."

Remember that Carlile is the man supposed to be looking out for our interests in all of this. His reading of the facts is that when three innocents (they have been charged and convicted of nothing) avoid their unjust imprisonment, this is proof that we must jug more said innocents.

Precisely. Hilariously, Lord Carlile calls himself a Liberal Democrat. He is neither.
