42 days

Apparently that bill has been passed.

We're allowing them to piss our historic rights up the wall here. We might as well tear up the Magna Carta, and every other right that has been fought for by our forefathers.

But it's all ok, apparently, as you can be compensated if you're wrongfully arrested.

I wonder, if they arrest you on suspicion TERRRRR, and you're released after the 42 days are up, can you claim 42 days of your life back from these illiberal cunts? Oh, you can get some sort of compensation. That's just fucking great. I'd want the time back. But they can't do that, can they?

The government didn't do this when the IRA were blowing up people doing their shopping.

I am horrified and ashamed to call myself British.

This is out of all proportion to the purported threat. It wasn't necessary during WW2 and it wasn't necessary during the IRA campaigns. It's ridiculous to believe that the largely imaginary al Qaeda is a threat of greater magnitude than during those two periods. What I can't figure out is - what the hell are they really scared of? Clearly, the worst is yet to come.

Not only am I horrified and ashamed to be British, but I'm also horrified and ashamed to find myself saying "thank god for the deeply undemocratic Tory-dominated house of lords.
