Blair and the Sun - were they right about the 45 minutes? Are they right about the 90 days?

The Blair Government and the Sun newspaper claimed that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction that could be ready within 45 minutes.

The Blair Government and the Sun newspaper fooled the less well-educated sections of the UK public.

Now Blair and the Sun want 90 day detention for 'terror suspects'. Blair and the Sun are hoping to fool the British public into thinking that this police-state measure will make them safer.

Charles Clarke, the Home Secretary, has admitted that MI5 did not request a new law allowing terror suspects be detained without charge for up to 90 days - directly contradicting Tony Blair, the Prime Minister. http://news.scotsman.com/index.cfm?id=2191412005

Blair and the Sun are wrong about 90 day detention.

Amnesty International's Stephen Bowen said of the measure in the new Terror Bill: "Tearing up rights and freedoms that date back to the Magna Carta will only hand a victory to criminals who carry out atrocities like those of July 7." http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/tm_objectid=16241375&method=full&siteid=94762&headline=blair-s-90-day-law-is--victory-for-terror---name_page.html

According to The Mirror:

Eric Metcalfe, of human rights group Justice, said: "Ninety days' detention without charge will make the UK weaker, not safer.

"The duty of the Government is not only to protect the lives of its citizens but also their freedoms. The ill-considered measures in this Bill put both at risk."

Even the Government's terror watchdog, Lord Carlile, said the law could be open to challenge under the European Human Rights Act.

Meanwhile a Government dossier outlining how other Western countries deal with potential threats backfired as officials had to acknowledge that none of the other countries surveyed had powers to detain suspects for 90 days.

The dossier showed the maximum detention period pre-charge in Australia is 168 hours.

In France it is four days and 13 in Spain.

Lib Dem home affairs spokesman Mark Oaten said: "This paper undermines the Government case."

Suspects can currently be held for up to 14 days without charge in Britain.

Who are the terrorists?
