At 5:28pm today, Charles Clarke showed me how serious he was about the hastily-announced consultation process (one can only wonder what brought *that* on) by actually asking me about my views on terrorism.

‘Leading’ doesn’t begin to describe this 4-question survey…. but I shan’t bother stamping my little feet about it because it’s late, I have a Guy to cover in hairspray, and Talk Politics already has it covered.

(I’m sure I don’t need to remind you that this is the same department that brought you public roadshows conducted in secret.)

UPDATE – More links can be found in comments and trackbacks, but I feel the need to highlight this, from Chicken Yoghurt: The debate on terror is a serious one and it needs adult contributions and a commitment to fair play and respect from all involved. Stunts like this do nothing but anger those able to see the fix, deceive those who aren’t, and seek to lend a credibility to Clarke and his legislation which they have neither earned nor deserve. Yet another sign of the contempt in which the public is held by New Labour.
