RIGHTS MESS | Tory plan to scrap Human Rights Act are to be dropped | News Of The World - 0 views

Conor Foley: Jacqui Smith should review her conscience | Comment is free | guardian.co.uk - 0 views

  • No one needs to explain to Jacqui Smith why it is wrong to give the police extended detention powers because she already knows the arguments. Many years ago when we were both activists in the Labour party's student wing, she was in the office of Sally Morgan, the party's student officer, when the police told her they were holding me under the Prevention of Terrorism Act. She knows what happened to me and she must know that she will be inflicting this on other innocent people.
