Blair get slayed by the woofters

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

British Prime Minister Tony Blair suffered his first major parliamentary defeat over new counter-terrorist powers this morning (NZ time), raising fresh questions about his authority.

The House of Commons voted by 322 to 291 against plans to let police hold terrorist suspects for up to 90 days without charge, as about 40 Labour MPs refused to support him.

Well, lets see how this vote goes when the Intifada creeps across the Channel as it must.

Once again the civil liberties of terrorists and criminals are protected whilst law abiding citizens the laws are designed to protect are left swinging until the next atrocity….by then the ones who voted against this measure will be the ones screaming the loudest for the government to do something. No one will point out that the government tried by they voted against it.
