Chuka Umunna

Former Liberal Democrat MP for Streatham


Labour's Anti-Terrorism Laws

A vote for Labour’s Anti-Terrorism Laws would have been a vote for the crime known as “Terrorism” to be treated in a different manner from murder and conspiracy to murder, and for it to have its own special category meaning that the normal rights not to be detained without charge or trial do not apply.
