New Anti-Terror measures

And now the government announces still more anti terror measures. New
offences of handling or being trained to handle hazardous materials;
Indirect incitement, what ever that means; and acting preparatory to a
terrorist attack.

There's a whiff of knee jerk in the air, there is also a surging
feeling amongst Muslims that they are the fall guys - that they are to blame
that they are the enemy. The email traffic and contacts I'm getting
from people expresses huge resentment at the way they are being regarded.

A Zimbabwe tale

Also tonight an amazing event at the House of Commons in which three
people the government sought to deport back to Zimbabwe tell a harrowing
tale of their danger their and their treatment here - claiming a
callous disregard for their safety.
