Gordon Brown embarrassed again by arrests based on insinuation
This whole exercise has been a farce worthy of Mel Brooks. Gordon Brown’s flunkies should audition for “The History of the World, Part 3″ – presuming “Part 2″ is still dedicated to the Bush-Blair twins.
The government faced a barrage of criticism after police released without charge the remaining 11 suspects arrested a fortnight ago in the north-west of England over an alleged terror plot.
The last two men to be released joined nine others given their freedom last night and one freed on 11 April.
Opposition parties, human rights lawyers and Muslim groups accused the government of mistreating the suspects and botching the anti-terror operation…
Shami Chakrabarti, director of human rights group Liberty, said: “In the vital task of policing open societies, it is inevitable that you arrest more people than you charge and that sometimes suspicion will never be converted into evidence. But national security deportation is an extremely shadowy process and we need assurances from ministers that these powers will only be used for public safety and not for political signalling.”
Gordon Brown had claimed the operation uncovered a “very big plot” against the UK.
We Posted about this when it got started by the Commissioner of Klutzy Car Exits and Silly Walks. Including Bob Quick’s resignation.
When push comes to shove, you can’t continue to abuse police powers if you turn up nothing more than people who read books the government doesn’t approve of – and make statements unacceptable at tea-party book signings.
