New "emergency" powers for Blair & co?

The Today programme woke me this morning with the level of frightening revelation that sent me scurrying for the newspapers. It wasn’t a sleep-addled hallucination. It was a piece of really bad news from Westminster about new powers for the Government in “times of crisis”. This is horrifying. How much more authoritarian would the Blair government like to get?

As usual in such matters, White Rose has the best commentary.
