The satirist Armando Iannucci's opinion piece in The Daily Telegraph pokes fun at various possible new draconian legislation that the Home Office will be trying to force on us e.g.
"The Anti Anti-Terrorism Bill Bill"
"Raised Eyebrow and Verbal Quibbling Police Enforcement Order"
"The Anti-failure Involvement Procedural Motion"
"The Two-Minute Cynicism Freezure Act"
"The Incitement to Connect Terrorism with Iraq Bill"
Last but by no means least is:
"The Whatever Bill - This gives the Home Secretary emergency powers to do any other things that haven't already been defined by the previous Acts."
Unfortunately the this is already law under the Civil Contingencies Act 2004: Part 2 Emergency Powers
Compare this list with the new powers which the Association of Chief Police Officers seem to be demanding from the Government (see our comments in the next posting).
