Unlawful Anti Terror Law

The Times reports that the police intend to use Section 44 of The Terrorism Act 2000 at every tube station in London during the London 2012 Olympics, this gives them the power to search people without any suspicion that they are terrorists.

The only problem with this is that the European Court of Human Rights has ruled that this is unlawful.

Section 44 must be granted by the Home Secretary for a designated area.

The Home Office is appealing against the European Court ruling.

Doubtless, were these powers to be enacted, the terrorists would avoid using the tube system.

After games, will the powers be revoked?

I doubt!
