Well done, Rebekah Wade… you’ve shown how completely detached from reality you are. If anyone is ‘out of step with public feeling’, it’s you:

The Sun – We shame ‘no’ vote MPs: MPs tonight rejected proposals for terror suspects to be held for up to 90 days without charge. In a bitter blow to Tony Blair the bill was defeated 322-291. Below we name and shame the MPs who voted down the bill. Print the list off and stick it on your fridge as a reminder of the TRAITOR MPs who betrayed Britain.

[Note to Rupert Murdoch: Mate, she’s overplaying it. Seriously. Those who didn’t see the strings yesterday are sure to see them today. Plus, you’ve opened yourself right up to a charge of divisiveness. That’s awfully close to dissent (at least, it is in my dictionary). We’re supposed to be working against the terrorist threat together, remember? You’ll want to sack this ginger clown pretty sharpish. That’s free advice from one Australian to another. I’d take it if I were you. Her ludicrous Page 3 editorial initiative earns me more immediate converts that anything else I can name. In fact, most people think I’m a bit of a nutter until I show them this.]

Oh… hello readers! Sorry about that. Housekeeping. Had to be done. Back on deck now.


You may wish to thank to following people, who did not fall for the whole ‘the police/public want this, so let’s not bother with details’ line of bulldust.

Given the circumstances, I’m sure you won’t mind taking the time to thank your MP (if they’re on the list) and at least one other:
