New Labour - New Freedoms

Not content with jailing pensioners for council tax arrears, they're being questioned under terrorism legislation for shouting 'nonsense' at Jack Straw.

According to a Radio Four PM report, when 82 year old Walter Wolfgang, a party mermber since 1948, was manhandled by stewards, the chairman of his constituency party tried to stop them, only to be himself assaulted and thrown out. Outside the hall his pass was taken.

When Mr Wolfgang attempted to use his pass to re-enter the conference, he was stopped by police, who said they needed to question him under anti-terror laws.

UPDATE - the excellent Wardyblog tells us all to calm down.
