42 days, tax fuel equally, 1 in 3 in poverty?

Detaining suspects for up to 42 days without charge seems to me, to be paving the way towards allowing 'Guantanamo Bay' style detention centres in the UK. Not a road, as a society, I would want to travel down.
A £10 billion tax let-off for plane fuel? To make green taxes work, fuels need to be equally taxed according to their damage to the environment.
One in three children still lives in poverty in this country, this figure is bound to rise as the credit crunch bites yet I am not hearing anything about how the government is going to tackle this.
