Terror Laws

There was a fascist Prime Minister,
MPs thought his Terror Laws sinister.
Blair pushed his luck,
They said "Get tae fuck!"
With any luck, now he'll leave Westminster

Well, the didn't get the 90 days, but they did get the 28. So, anyone accused of being a terrorist, which is defined in a way to catch a lot of people that aren't fanatical followers of a particualr faith, animal rights campaigners and 82 year old hecklers come to mind, can, if the Commons gets its way, be locked up for a whole month. MPs opposed to it deserve a little support, MPs in favour deserve to be told off. Tim from [ profile] bloggerheads asks nicely:
What I want you to do is this:


1. Use this facility to look up and contact your MP:

2. Tell them that 97% of Sun readers do not support Blair's 90-day detention plan and/or send them this link:

3. Publish steps 1, 2 and 3 on your own weblog (or send/post these details to your usual community/messageboard).

Thank you.

The Sun, incidentally, is lying its tits off (literally, even page 3 is propaganda these days), but if a dodgy lefty like me finds himself in full agreement with a radical Tory like [ profile] devils_kitchen then something is wrong. Limericks are from him BTW. More coverage in my newsblog feeds and on [ profile] nolittleengland.

90 days was considered too long,
MPs didn't think 28 days wrong;
They passed that Bill.
It's a whole month still:
Is calling Blair "a cunt" too strong?

He's playing silly buggers with stats to at least some degree, but then again, the Sun is too, so it's all fair.

Mine's a Lib Dem and thus will likely be against it anyway, but I may well send him a letter anyway. The Hereford one, that is. I might send Ben Bradshaw one too.
