Supreme Court Hammers Down

The UK Supreme Court has today judged that special Treasury orders freezing the assets of the suspected terrorists is illegal. Well duh. In an obvious breach of the UDHR, the Government think that they have the power to suspend people assets, freeze their movements. It must be remembered – these are people, not Icelandic banks. There have been many stories ever since stories of torture were leaked from U.S. officials. These leaked reports set in motion a mass reaction, from both the world media and the average citizen. But why hasn’t this? The answer is simple – Labour have done a damn good job covering it up. Although the press inevitably got wind of it, all reports we vehemently denied by the Government. These suspects were stripped of their dignity, homes, finances, contact with family, only to be acquitted. This is simply unacceptable. Charges, or at least a smack across the knuckles followed by a ‘You’re Fired’, is necessary.
