Electoral panic

The Guardian reports that Theresa May is threatening to rip up human rights laws in order to try and gain control of the security agenda in the run-up to the general election.

Here’s the giveaway:

Despite having previously said she believed the police and security services had the resources they needed to deal with terrorism, she went on to announce details of a proposed crackdown on terrorism at a rally of Conservative activists in Slough.

Theresa May does not believe what she is saying. She is panicking about her shrinking poll lead and making up policy on the hoof.

This is how bad laws are made.
