The Mirror carries a story that Brown's 42 days detention proposals are flawed because suspects cannot be held for that length of time either in police cells or in overcrowded high security prisons (where suspects would be in solitary confinement, no doubt).
Despite Patrick Mercer's deep misgivings based on his personal experience of detention without trial in Northern Ireland, it seems the government has learned nothing.
No doubt the old architect's drawings for the Castlereagh Interrogation Centre are being studied by the Home Secretary; I wouldn't be at all surprised that if this truly dreadful legislation is passed the government will see fit to build a specialist holding and interrogation centre in West Drayton or somewhere similar.
DUP members will know better than most how Castlereagh was regarded in the Province. And how many lives were needlessly lost from the hatred and loathing of all it represented. Let's hope they search their hearts before they walk through Brown's lobby today.
