Success for Blair

Dear Madam,

Why is the dominant media still portraying Blair's recent parliamentary vote on detention without charge as a failure? Mr. Blair has managed to pass a number of draconian measures, including the detention of innocent people for 28 days without charge. This has been received without the slightest hint of criticism from nearly all mainstream news outlets. One of his most impressive successes I think.

Yours sincerely,
