UK Liberty

Happy Birthday Magna Carta

Posted in law and order by ukliberty on June 15, 2007

To mark the anniversary of King John signing the Magna Carta on 15 June 1215, Shirley Williams gave today’s [13 June 2007] Magna Carta Lecture (opens as word document) at Royal Holloway. She warns that the British state could lose its historic commitment to liberty if it undermines detention without trial and other fundamental aspects of human rights in its anti-terror legislation.
