Well thank heavens for the Law Lords. The government may hold human rights in little or no regard, but they do, and they've blocked the use of any evidence obtained by torture. It's the second time within 12 months that they've twarted the government in its attempts to ignore fundamental human rights - last year they ruled that imprisonment without trial is illegal.
It's a bit of a shame that we have to rely on the unelected Lords to point this sort of thing out, but there you are. Here's to you, your Lordships. Perhaps there's some hope after all.Posted to The Big Room by Simon Brunning at December 09, 2005 07:05 PM
