Lords Keep Rejecting Terror Bill

Further to yesterday's initial rejection of the incredibly badly thought out terror bill, the Lords continue the smackdown with numerous further ammendments.

I didn't realise the initial bill included a clause allowing the use of evidence from abroad obtained by torture. That's incredible: On the one hand we're saying we want everyone to be nice to each other, and on the other hand we're saying torture's okay, so long as we don't do it. What?

The two-faced-ness of the government of late is staggering. Some reality is required I think. Sadly, this usually takes a change of government, and I'm not sure I have much faith in the traditional electoral favourite.

As always the BBC doing well with a "have your say".
