New terror laws for the hell of it: the lies Ruddock's telling us: "In this context, Ruddock's 'urgent' moves to list Laskar-e-Taiba and Hamas can either be seen as a failure to be properly briefed or an instance of rank political opportunism. Either way, it is unacceptable."

Naturally one would suspect the latter explanation with Ruddock. It is a predictable strategy to exploit public fears for political advantage. The opposition must have the courage to explain the situation for what it is and inform the public of the real issues of security, and the political ones.
