Here we go again, a new home secretary, a new request for 90 days detention without charge.
It has only been 14 days since the current 28 day detention was debated in parliament, with warnings that it should be seen as an 'exceptional power'.
Already the longest period in the western world of detention without charge, it would appear that the Police are again seizing the chance of influencing a new Home Secretary.
We have said, the politicians have all said, and given numerous chances, for the Police to prove beyond reasonable doubt why 90 days is essential, and they have consistently failed to do so.
There are dark forces at hand here, it can be the only answer as to why the ACPO keep playing in the political arena and are looking for more authoritarian and police state powers.
If this Home Secretary is not strong enough to keep the ACPO in the box, then she is definitely in the wrong job.
