How very convenient...

. The day after the governments plans to introduce detention without charge to 42 days are reduced to tatters the Security Minister, Lord West stands up and tells the House of Lords that the terrorist threat is "huge" and that there is;

"There is another great plot building up again."

We shouldn't be merely saying that this is "blowing the cover of an inquiry" but we should be asking very searching questions about the timing of this announcement. This is especially so as the BBC reports;

"counter-terrorism sources were "slightly baffled" at Lord West's comments."

Some people may feel that the vote in the Lords and these comments are connected and that this plot is in fact a spurious invention of a desperate government minister and that it is in fact the government that is playing politics with peoples lives and liberties.
