Police Bill is dangerous and draconian

Reacting to the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill passing its Commons Second Reading last night, Liberal Democrat Home Affairs spokesperson Alistair Carmichael MP said: 
“These new Conservative laws to crackdown on protests are dangerous and draconian.
“The right to peaceful assembly and protest is a fundamental human right. It has always been a crucial part of our democratic society.
“The weekend’s appalling events at the Clapham Vigil show why this Bill must be stopped in its tracks. They should force Priti Patel to think again.
“These new laws are part of the Conservative Government’s anti-democratic attempts to silence any opposition to its policies. Liberal Democrats, will fiercely fight them at every step of the way.”
