Met Chief says yah boo sucks to rule of law and political neutrality

Good to see the police keeping an eye on things:

[Sir Ian Blair, Metropolitan Police comissioner] said it was important for the left in British politics to realise that there were terrible choices involved in tackling terrorism[,] and those who blew up and shot those who opposed them were enemies of a liberal democracy.

He said the choice was between a rule of law in a liberal democracy and whether we were going to allow people to turn bits of London into dust with bodies lying all around. He said that the Law Lords' recent ruling meant that they had to find another process to put them under some form of control. [emphasis added]

"Terrible choices": "you are either with us, or against us." Terrible, but false.
