GUEST,Boab BS: Blairs first defeat (117* d) RE: BS: Blairs first defeat 10 Nov 05

There is no doubt that in Britain today there is a need for increased security and defence against terrorists. The increased "detention without trial" could well be a part of that necessity. But for a quarter of a year? A bit much, I say. And let's not forget that coupled with this attempt by the Prime Monster were little hardly-publicised proposals with regard to what constitutes "terrorism" or "activities in support of terrorism". All that aside, none of us should lose sight of the fact that had Blair had the nous to keep Britain out of the Iraq fiasco, the measures now being proposed would have been a damn' sight less imperative. Call me "Blair hater" if you will; it's not a badge to be ashamed of. He has made a shambles of the British Labour Party, and driven many moderate "lefties" to an extreme position because of the blatantly rightward march of "new" labour. While it is far too late to prevent further vengeful terrorist action, his demise cannot come fast enough.
