Three year old terrorists?

Poole Borough Council in Dorset have undertaken surveillance across February and March of a three year old girl and her family.

Poole's powers were invoked under the Government's controversial Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act.

And the reason for this intrusion? Was this a suspected terrorist? Perhaps the toddler was carrying a lunch box full of semtex?  No.  Her parents, Jenny Paton and Tim Joyce, were suspected of using a false address to get her in to Poole's Lilliput Primary School.

Once again using a sledgehammer to crack a nut, the Labour government have enabled anti-terrorism laws to be used against a child of three.

But isn't this the same Labour government who are fanatical about Human Rights legislation?

How does that work then?
