      Chaos last night surrounded the first 'control orders' served on
      suspects following last week's dramatic passage of new anti-terror
      laws through Parliament.

      Lawyers acting for 10 former detainees released on bail last week
      have already identified a series of serious problems with the new
      system, which also applied to British subjects from yesterday.

      On release, the foreign nationals discovered that a hotline set up to
      keep them in touch with the Home Office had not been activated.

      One man. known as B, who did not wish to be released from Broadmoor
      high security psychiatric hospital, is reported to have suffered a
      further mental breakdown as a result of being moved. When police
      arrived at the council flat assigned to him they were forced to break
      the door down to gain entry. There are serious concerns for his
      safety because he has already made one attempt on his life.

      Suspects must phone a private tagging company before they leave the
      house. But in one case, suspect P, who has no arms, was supplied with
      a phone that had not been adapted for his disability.

      Lawyers acting for Abu Rideh, a Palestinian also held at Broadmoor
      said police had told him that they knew he was no danger to the
      public.

      The mother of one former detainee visiting from abroad had been
      thrown out of the family house because she was not on a list of
      people authorised to visit the suspect under the terms of the control
      order.

      Solicitor Gareth Peirce, who represents most of the detainees said
      the system had already descended into mayhem. 'Another hideous
      experiment has begun and once again the government is using human
      guinea pigs.'

        Hi Keith
         
        Very sad indeed. 
         
        Tony Blair and his henchmen are turning the UK into a dictatorship.  The very thing that King Tony said was the reason for us going into Iraq (following the lack of finding any  Weapons of Mass Destruction/Deception). 
         
        The May elections gives the electorate the chance to give Tony and his mob a bloody nose.  Make your vote wisely.  Do not be a slave to a dictatorship.
