David Davis Resigns Over the 42 Day Detention Policy

Wow. Can you imagine something like this happening in the US? The Shadow Home Secretary, who generally ran to David Cameron's right in the 2005 race for the leadership of the Conservative Party, is resigning his seat in parliament in protest. He's protesting what he views as the Labour's latest move against civil liberties. Can you imagine a similarly prominent member of our country's "conservative" party doing such a thing?

Wow, my tastes are pretty progressive, but that looks like a ship from the next Star Trek spin off, and not one of the better ones. Methinks the architect took the word "satellite" a bit too literally. Kinda makes you wonder what atrocities Libeskind and Fuksass (is that name for real?) came up with.
