Not only do you guys hold suspected terrorist without a trial (or you certainly have been known to) but you guys don't even have to charge them with a crime for the first 28 days that they are being held.
We can hold them without charge for 90 days now. BUT we can never hold them without Trial, come what may, after 90 days they either get trial or freedom.

Thats not right either...but at least we cant hold them indefinately without Trial, like America could with Guantanamo.

Tony Blair was under pressure last night over controversial laws allowing the detention without trial of 14 foreign terrorist suspects who have been held for up to two years in "Britain's Guantanamo Bay".

Human rights groups and MPs condemned sweeping powers in the Anti-Terrorism, Crime and Security Act as an affront to the rule of law. Under the emergency legislation, passed after the 11 September attacks on the United States, foreign nationals suspected of terrorist activity can be held indefinitely as an alternative to deportation if they face torture or death in their own countries.

Fourteen suspects are being held at a total cost of up to 750,000 under the anti-terrorism legislation. Seven of the detainees are thought to be held at Belmarsh top-security jail in south-east London, where it costs 36,000 a year to hold each prisoner, and fiveat Woodhill prison in Milton Keynes, where holding each prisoner costs 31,000 a year.

The human rights group Liberty yesterday led calls for the Act's repeal....<more>
Just say it is for their own good and 'Ta da' you got yourself a prisoner indefinitely.

ps I know this is an older article but trust me, it is still happening.

pss Another question, do you not think that your government has sent people to us at Guantanamo Bay? Let us do the dirty work so you can criticize us. lol

Brock Lesnar has nothing to fear...unless he CANT beat Shane Carwin...its called put your money where your mouth is.

You pay your dues by winning J.B its not rocket science...if you win you may have winnings...but if you lose after asking for big winnings...you get half and your opponent gets what you felt you deserved for winning.
No, Dave, it's not rocket science...but you are missing the point as to how this actually works, and why it should work that way.

Let's just take this conversation back to the UFC thread, lol

Our Government did YOUR bidding through out the whole collection of prisoners to do with the War on Terror

In essence...Tony Blair was just implementing a form of Americanism into England, thats what his whole last term was about. Becoming the US Governor of England...which is what he was from 2002 onwards.

The thing is...it was the Americans ideal, everything was their idea...thats what the Enqiriy into Iraq is basically saying. The Government were forced into a U-Tern as soon as Tony met George...a short private meeting nearly a year before the invasion...and then...we were a mere extention of whatever Government Civil Service department of yours controls Foreign Policy
