At what point will Gordon Brown actually say something about these new police powers proposals? How can we have a Government that is working like this? We effectively have a new Prime Minister who is currently touring the country and going to hustings but who has now been silent for over 24 hours on a matter of policy that is leading pretty much every newspaper today.
Is it just a case of McCavity yet again wanting to avoid answering difficult questions? Or is he just sitting back and keeping his hands clean with no actually plans to change the policy anyway? The Cabinet is in open revolt on this (although clearly the Deputy leadership race is the reason for that as Hain tries to make some ground with the subject), and yet the man who wants to be King says nothing.
Does Brown support these draconian proposals or not? We should be told. Either he should say something, or the press should be forcing an answer out of him.
