“Is Tony Blair’s Government Guilty of ‘Developing Something Close to a Criminal Policy’?”
We need a special edition of the Catch-Up Service, just for the Questions to Which the Answer is No that I have missed.
Number 691 in the series, above, was asked, in the arresting present tense, by the Pacific Free Press, 6 August (and that was before Blair was being blamed for the riots), of a Guardian report, 4 August. The “criminal policy” quotation is from when the question was originally asked (number 42 or thereabouts) by that model of rhetorical restraint and judicial judiciousness, Ken Macdonald:
The real question here is not whether a single individual was somehow solitarily complicit in torture. It is, rather more seriously, whether Tony Blair’s Government was guilty of developing something close to a criminal policy.
Do we need exorcism?
