It seems that Brian Haw has been permitted to continue his protest outside the House of Commons until 11 July. That is the date when he must return to court to answer charges of exercising his democratic right to protest. Honestly, are we living in a free country or a South American dictatorship?

The Metropolitan Police has wasted over £27,000 on its clamp down on Mr Haw's five year Parliament Square protest. This is hardly money well spent. Liberal Democrat MP, Nick Harvey is spot on when he says: "It is shocking to see the Government so fearful of criticism that it has to resort to inventing a new law to stop a 57 year old man from making his views known.
This dispute has far reaching implications for the civil liberties of each and every one of us."
