I received this from Amnesty recently:
There has been much media speculation that the 42 day proposal will be dropped. However at Amnesty we are all too aware that we can’t rely on political rumours that 42 days won’t become law when hard-won liberties are at stake. Plans to extend detention without charge should be abandoned once and for all. We don’t want them returning under another guise – not next month, not next year. Furthermore, Number 10 stated this week they are determined to pursue the 42 day proposal.
Now is a critical time for us to act and prevent this needless attack on our basic rights. If you haven’t already, say no to 42 days, sign our petition now
