Prime Minister Tony Blair's article in the Daily Telegraph has these weasel words:
"We have to balance protection for the public from terrorism with safeguarding civil liberties. But there is no greater civil liberty than to live free from terrorist attack."
Those words are an insult to all the British people who have risked their lives and those who have died fighting against tyrannical governments and ideologies.
There are worse things than mere terrorist attacks - having to live under a repressive government, for one.
