Discredited control orders scheme should be scrapped - Huhne
"This scheme should be scrapped before any more taxpayers’ money is wasted on court cases," said the Liberal Democrat Shadow Home Secretary. Commenting on the decision by Alan Johnson to release a man who had been held under a control order for three years, Chris Huhne said:
“This is yet another blow to the Government’s discredited and illiberal control orders scheme.
“It flies in the face of British justice to place people under de facto house arrest without even telling them why.
“This scheme should be scrapped before any more taxpayers’ money is wasted on court cases where the Home Office trying to defend the indefensible.”
In the UK as well as the world, we live in interesting times. The global economy is in tatters, there is war all over the place and not content with killing and maiming each other, we're also destroying the environment we live in. In the UK we have a failing government and one could go far enough to say a failing political system. There is a lot going on that makes the blood boil. News Rage is a state of angry mind coupled with the actual venting of that anger which manifests itself in the publication of interesting and hopefully entertaining but highly critical articles about something that has been reported in the news within the last 24 hours.
