A lesson in civil liberties for the Tory MPs

27 October, 2017

• TORY MPs Chris Heaton-Harris and Rory Stewart need to understand a fundamental principle: “One of the most insidious degradations of democracy is the scapegoating of minorities – be they ethnic, racial, religious, political or sexual – because to deny the civil liberties of any specific group, even in the name of national security, is to take the first step towards curtailing the civil liberties of all.”*
