Another good reason to hate and fear the government

'Eighty-year-old John Catt served with the RAF in the Second World War. Last September, he was stopped by police in Brighton for wearing an "offensive" T-shirt which suggested that Bush and Blair be tried for war crimes. He was arrested under the Terrorism Act and handcuffed, with his arms held behind his back. The official record of the arrest says the "purpose" of searching him was "terrorism" and the "grounds for intervention" were "carrying plackard and T-shirt with anti-Blair info" (sic).

He is awaiting trial.'

From here.

Hat tip to the Hamster.

UPDATE: NuLabour are at it again on detention - they didn't get 90 days without trial so they are going for 60 days via the (unelected) back door. This story needs publicising so do pass it on....
