Letter to the BBC

« previous entry | next entry »

On the Today programme this morning (24 Nov), the Home Office minister Caroline Flint justified the recently announced crime bills on the grounds that terrorism is a new threat. This is offensively ignorant, and well illustrates the way the Labour government is exaggerating people's fears in order to gain political advantage.

Is that a "you wrote a letter to the bbc" or "you want to in response to this" or "caroline flint wrote one" ?

That's what I sent to the BBC (and the Guardian and the Home Office)

That's what I assumed, but I just wanted to clarify it.

The IRA was just a figment of our imagination.

And obviously we need more draconian legislation now than for the last 3 years as the WoT has made the world safer!
