Go Michael Howard

I'm watching Prime Minister's Question Time right now, watching British Conservative leader Michael Howard brilliantly articulate opposition to Tony Blair's failed attempt to allow law enforcement to lock up terrorist suspects for ninety days without charges.

It's so great to see a country where the conservatives actually still stand up for civil liberties. It seems to be a dying trend in North American conservatism, where the conservatives are more concerned with making people afraid of terrorism than with protecting the rights the terrorists want to destroy.
