Charlie Says No to 42

Lord Falconer the former Lord Chancellor, who originally backed Tony Blair's plans to extend the period of detention without charge limit for terror suspects, has said there is no need to extend it from the current 28 day limit to the 42 which now appears to be latest Labour ultimate answer.

He now joins the former Attorney General Lord Goldsmith and the Parliamentary committees on Home Affairs and Human Rights to criticise such plans.

Jacqui Smith, the Home Secrtary say she will be looking for a compromise but if even some of the former 90 day supporters are not sure of advancing further it looks hard pressed that this will be forthcoming.
