Do you support killing of innocent people?

Tony Blair claims that MPs who oppose his hardline plans for terror suspects are flying in the face of public opinion.
He says politicians, including those from his own side, have to listen to the people.
I suppose Labour is getting some of its feedback from its website ( where Home Secretary Charles Clarke is asking for people’s “views on the new terrorist threats that face all of us”.
Visitors to the site are asked to answer three questions with either Yes, No or Not Sure.
The questions are so simplistic they would gather support for any initiative from locking people up for 90 days without charge to firing them into space just to be on the safe side.
Labour asks:
1) Do you think that our laws should be updated to cope with the current security threat?
2) Do you think police should have the time and opportunity to complete their investigations into suspected terrorists?
3) Do you think the government should make sure there are new safeguards to protect innocent people?
Ask a stupid question, get the answer best suited to saving your career.
How about the Labour Party separating this important issue from the leader’s desperate wish to cling onto power?
Blair, as someone once said, is a “here today, gone tomorrow politician”, but the consequences of his ambition will be here for sometime to come.
