Glorifying Terrorism

Peteb on Slugger and Chris Bertram on Crooked Timber both address the draft amendments to the PTA (the Home Office's site is here). This is deeply worrying stuff: I thought the whole point of rule of law was to keep such powers out of the hands of government. Additionally, I guess that, in the wake of Blair's supposed triumph at the UN this week, we can expect China, Burma and various others to start locking up dissidents as glorifiers of terrorism. And thanks to our Blair, they can come back in a year and tell us how well they're doing.
