Not a day longer

Natually I will oppose any attempt by the government to extend the period of detention without charge by longer than 28 days - it is far too long already - but I've not blogged specifically on this since Sunny Hundal and my co-conspirators over at Liberal Conspiracy are doing a pretty good job already.

I would just add that on the whole gamut of issues surrounding individual liberty, including of course ID cards, it seems to me that the Tories are currently more in tune with the public mood than the government, a peculiar and rather dangerous position for an avowedly left-of-centre administration to be in.

You seem to hold a quaint belief that a 'left of centre' party would include democracy, pluralism and liberty as key principles.

Do you concede that the evidence indicates that in Labour 'the party line' usurps all and that the party does in fact resemble a one man state?
