I’m enjoying watching Lord Goldsmith, who’s Andrew Neil’s guest on the Daily Politics today. He’s a serious chap more suited to Newsnight or Today than to joshing about the way Andrew Neil does – but he’s doing his best.

He thinks the Counter-Terrorism Bill may only be properly debated by the Lords in the autumn. He also made the very good point that 42 days detention isn’t necessary for public protection – if a suspect had to be released at 28 days, he could immediately be made subject to a control order.
