From Saturday's Guardian:
We assess that Miranda is knowingly carrying material, the release of which would endanger people's lives. Additionally the disclosure or threat of disclosure is designed to influence a government, and is made for the purpose of promoting a political or ideological cause. This therefore falls within the definition of terrorism and as such we request that the subject is examined under schedule 7.
So there you have it folks. Things are actually much worse than I had feared. Journalism is officially viewed by the Metropolitan Police and the Home Office as a form of terrorism.
Those folks at Generation Opportunity whose creepy ads have been encouraging young people not to buy health insurance better consider cancelling their planned holiday in England, or they might find themselves detained at Heathrow.
|An act of terrorism (in all sorts of ways).|
Additionally, Carl Gardiner has very usefully posted on his blog, along with a helpful commentary, the full statement of facts and grounds prepared by Matthew Ryder QC, Ed Craven and Raj Desai, outlining the grounds of the application for judicial review of the decision to use Schedule 7.
The Court is going to be asked to decide whether journalism can be terrorism: this is going all the way to the Supreme Court.
