News Vom

Report finds that terror laws risk human rights, with a longer article at the Scotsman. Have yet to find the report, but the alternatives seem to involve more surveillance and more laws to put people on trial. Uh huh.

Home Office to be split up - to be replaced by a "Ministry of Justice" and a "Ministry of Rights". Closely followed by a Ministry of Love and a Ministry of Peace. Orwell would be proud. Or sick.

Also from the Scotsman, Blunkett warns US Animal Rights Protestors not to come to the UK, but he's not telling which ones, no. "Is he wearing a hat?" "Does he have a beard?" "It's Mike!" as the old advert goes...
