A modest proposal
According to the claimants, the IPT has never ruled in favour of the claimants in any case against the intelligence or security services.
Nor will they ever. Those who serve on such tribunals are well-paid by the special interests on whose behalf those in power govern us.
We will never be able to achieve a practical balance between the legitimate need for government collection of intelligence for national security and the basic rights of individuals until we have established legal mechanisms to ensure that those who abuse such intelligence information for political or personal advantage are punished severely.
That will not happen until the makeup and character of those we elect to govern changes.
