Amidst all the budget talk, you might miss the fact that no evidence has been found that the 12 students arrested in Lancashire the other week were up to terrorist plotting. You'd think they'd be released and allowed to go back to their lives instead of turned over to the Borders Agency and potentially thrown out of the country.
Costigan Quist has written an excellent analysis of this and if you do nothing else today, read it.
Mind you, this is the same Home Office who have separated breastfeeding mothers from their babies, locked families up in horrendous conditions in Dungavel and Yarl's Wood and suggested that gay men would be fine in countries where they could be put to death as long as they were discreet. We shouldn't really be surprised. Ashamed, but not surprised.....
