Hicham Yezza

Sorry I'm late with this. I really can't believe that this politically-motivated shabby little Home Office stitch-up is still going on. Charge or release. Charge or release, god dammit. Remember, the comprehensive thrashing the government got over 42 days? You'd think they might get a grip, but no, no, no.

Here we have the sorry saga of the Home Office's attempts latest attempts to shamefacedly bundle an innocent man out of the country because it appears that their heavy-handed attempt to nick him for terrorism charges and bang him up for 6 days and nights without charging him (over downloading stuff that was a) relevant to his degree course b) available on Amazon) backfired on them badly, got into the media and made them look like authoritarian heartless swines last summer.

Clue: You want to win abstract-noun 'wars' about freedom, justice, democracy and liberty? You have to walk the walk as well as talk the talk you know. Sheesh.

Unity explains why on Liberal Conspiracy.

Sounds to me like your government is taking yet more lessons from GW Bush.

Thank goodness we are going to be rid of that asshole. Now maybe we can all read the constitution and go back to acting that way. And maybe your gov't will do the same. Here's hoping!
