Inspector Clouseau (Charles Clarke on a lifetime quest to determine his arrse from his elbow) is planning to introduce legislation that will allow the police to lock someone up for three months without charge (as opposed to 14 days) and that will criminalise the glorification of terrorism.

Are these necessary proposals or the first step to a Nazi-style regime in this country?

My outrage may be prompted by the prospect of being locked up for celebrating the Dear Leader's premature demise (if this occured) but I think I have more altruistic reasons.

The only time you see suspected terrorists being locked up is at the same time that the government is proposing even tougher laws.

My view is that this corrupt shower want to see an eventual situation in which dissent is only allowed on limited occasions (ie prior to a general election) and the term "terrorism" will apply to any form of opposition to policies or announcements made by government. Needless to say, dissenters will be locked up.

Is this paranoid? Just think of the egregious shower we have in power (Blunktw@tt for example) and how far they have gone in the past to twist the rules or smear others, with fatal results on one occasion.

Matthew Parris in the Times today:

No, there is only one possible source of this folly. The notion that you can make the world a better place by making it illegal to say nasty and dangerous things has the intellectual sloppiness, the headline-seeking shallowness, the philosophical carelessness and the creepy mix of the sinister with the sanctimonious, that marks it out as absolutely characteristic of our Prime Minister’s mind.
