“The Slow Strangulation of Fundamental … Freedoms”

Those were the words of British MP David Davis, resigning his seat in protest of Gordon Brown’s latest terrorism measures, which would include holding people without charge for six weeks. Oh, Davis isn’t gone for good. His resignation prompts an election, and he will run again, using the campaign as a platform to protest against the governments actions. See the New York Times, Commonweal, Independent, Times, and an Andrew Sullivan column which includes a Doctor Who connection.
