Act of Terror

It is easy to forget about the 2005 Terrorism Act and its damaging effect on civil liberties and human rights. Act Of Terror puts the spotlight back on this murky law, and demands that we keep vigilant in the face of ever increasing state power.
Quite right, and not a party political issue either as David Davis' principled position amply demonstrates. Reading about Alan Johnson's autobiography the other day, I was struck that if the dice had fallen separately he could be the leader of the Labour party and Davis may have led the Tories. That would have been infinitely preferable to the snake oil salesmen we have had thrust upon us.
