Govt has failed to make case for 42 days

"The police have enough emergency power already. As for panic, that has nothing to do with national security and everything to do with the position of the prime minister. If Gordon Brown needs to appear macho, he can find thugs to arrest, drink laws to change, taxes to raise and citizens to frighten with late-night calls. He has failed to make a case for detaining people for 42 days without charge. MPs should never pass this sinister bill." —Simon Jenkins
