Terror again

Stop me if you’ve heard it before…Theresa May wants to deprive terror suspects of British citizenship – that’s ‘suspects’, mind, not people found guilty of terrorism. Knowing how arbitrary and incompetent the process of suspecting has been in the past ought to make us a little bit cautious, but no, if whips are being cracked, they’ll all fall into line. will there be any opposition? The Lib Dems indicate brief unease, but are then talked round. All we’re left with at the crunch are the usual suspects – Shami Chakrabarti, Sarah Teather, David Davis, individuals with varied party allegiance or none, united only by the rare distinction that they all share a belief in civil liberties. We are a shrinking minority.
