Mick Hume reviewed the Taking Liberties exhibition for the Times (Taking Liberties blog here):

…. the human-rights lawyers, lobbyists and lords who argued over the Government’s proposal to extend detention without charge for terror suspects to 42 days … may have celebrated retaining the 28-day limit as an historic triumph, but I don’t recall seeing the demand for “only” four weeks detention without charge being made by the Levellers or Chartists or Mill or Paine.
