Modern liberty on the Northern Ireland blogosphere
Just a quick blog about a spirited debate happening over at our friends 'Slugger O'Toole'!
In an interview for the Observer Gordon Brown has been framing his drive for security on the recent situation over here. Slugger blogger Brian Walker has rightly aired his misgivings that more security equals a diminishment of hard won rights and liberties and questions the need for the return of the security system dismantled in Northern Ireland 10 years ago.
The recent convention on modern liberty showed the government that the human rights movement won't sleepwalk into a society where there is an imbalance between security and liberty.
Lets keep this debate on the front page!!
