Record View : Real terror.

THE Government can't afford to take chances with terrorists - or our justice system.

The House of Lords have ruled the powers they gave themselves to imprison foreign nationals without trial or limit of time are unlawful.

They were right to do so. As one of the judges said, powers like that are an even greater threat to our democracy than terrorists.

Some of the 17 'suspects' in jail have been driven out of their minds and we aren't allowed to know why they have been imprisoned.

If the Government have evidence to keep them behind bars for three years, then it should be good enough to take to court.
