After all the fuss Labour have been making over extending the 28 day time limit for how long terror suspects can be held without charge, today the Home Secretary Jacqui Smith said "The answer is I don't know" when she was asked on BBC Radio 4 just how long the proposed limit should be.
Though Jacqui acknowledged that the police hadn't yet needed any longer than 28 days, she insisted that there was "widespread support" for an extension. It's funny but the only support I've seen for this Bill is from the Labour Party itself.
The Tories are proposing post-charge questioning as a better option.
