Liberty

Excellent critique of the Blairite response to 7/7 in the Guardian a couple of days ago by Shami Chakrabarti. Liberty is sometimes lumped together by conservative commentators along with the Galloway/Respect/SWP crowd.

This is unfortunate - Liberty is a pragmatic organisation which plays an important role in protecting our civil liberties while Shami Chakrabarti is an excellent conveyor of ideas making rational arguments which are feisty without going near the ideological guff which one sometimes hears.

As an added bonus, she not only discusses the problems of proposed government policy but at the same time offers concrete proposals of alternative measures needed to combat the terrorist threat.
