Routine abuse of detainees

As a Briton I have been brought up in a climate of indignation and outrage at stories of abuse by “foreign” regimes. Such stories have been legion in the media and countless books. The persistent stories of abuse and worse by people supposedly “on your own side” in consequence gives an initial reaction of disbelief. Guantanamo Bay, Iraq, an over-stuffed prison system and ejection of those already persecuted has dealt with that.
I call on my MP, Khalid Mahmood, to support an Early Day Motion to make significant changes to practices, procedures and approaches to people detained and open to abuse by all and sundry put in their charge. Many of these “guards” are part of the privatisation that New Labour indulges itself in.
