Shanghaiceltic BS: Blairs first defeat (117* d) RE: BS: Blairs first defeat 09 Nov 05

28 days was finally voted in.

My own feeling is that following the Blunkett farce this is another blow which his detractors will use to undermine him. Add his inept wife's faux pas and the record of some of his ministers ineptitude and you have a man with no authority.

He has already said he will stand down at prior to the next election, GB will be making moves behind the scenes to become leader and maybe Prime Minsister.

28 days would seem about right to hold a person without charge, longer and you are playing around with fundemental freedoms.

I agree in these days you need to have stronger powers to combat potential terrorism, but they have to be weighed against potential power to abuse basic freedoms which the UK has enjoyed as part of their law.
