tary prison, are to share a pay-out of £14m, it can be disclosed.
The payments to the 16 prisoners were made against a background in which MI5 and MI6 felt their control of secret intelligence was “spiraling out of control” one source said.
It was the first time that the security services had been sued in civil courts on such a scale and sources say the civil court system was ill-equipped to cope.
Up to 100 officers and lawyers were involved in scruitinising documents for MI5 alone as part of a disclosure process that involved examining 500,000 documents across both security services.
The procedure was expected to last three to five years and cost up to £50m, Ken Clarke, the Justice Secretary told the House of Commons.
Mr Clarke said the country’s reputation for human rights, justice, fairness and the rule of law risked being tarnished.
He said a mediated settlement had been reached which was subject to a legally binding confidentiality agreement, however the Daily Telegraph understands that the sum amounts to £14m.
The victims here are not victims of terror. What is it? It seems like criminal fraud, where the Muslims, who happen to be terrorists in this case, scam money off our weak and incompetent government.
Mr. Clarke was worried about our reputation for human rights, justice and fairness. But was he worried about hard working men and women in this country that now have to pay the price for his feeling of moral superiority?…
Most Western societies are based on Secular Democracy, which itself is based on the concept that the open marketplace of ideas leads to the optimum government. Whilst that model has been very successful, it has defects. The 4 Freedoms address 4 of the principal vulnerabilities, and gives corrections to them.
At the moment, one of the main actors exploiting these defects, is Islam, so this site pays particular attention to that threat.
Islam, operating at the micro and macro levels, is unstoppable by individuals, hence: "It takes a nation to protect the nation". There is not enough time to fight all its attacks, nor to read them nor even to record them. So the members of 4F try to curate a representative subset of these events.
We hope that free nations will wake up to stop the threat, and force the separation of (Islamic) Church and State. This will also allow moderate Muslims to escape from their totalitarian political system.
The 4 Freedoms
These 4 freedoms are designed to close 4 vulnerabilities in Secular Democracy, by making them SP or Self-Protecting (see Hobbes's first law of nature). But Democracy also requires - in addition to the standard divisions of Executive, Legislature & Judiciary - a fourth body, Protector of the Open Society (POS), to monitor all its vulnerabilities (see also Popper). 1. SP Freedom of Speech Any speech is allowed - except that advocating the end of these freedoms 2. SP Freedom of Election Any party is allowed - except one advocating the end of these freedoms 3. SP Freedom of Movement The government can import new voters - except where that changes the political demographics (i.e. electoral fraud by means of immigration) 4. SP Freedom from Over-spending
People should not be charged for government systems which they reject, and which give them no benefit. For example, the government cannot pass a debt burden across generations (25 years).
An additional Freedom from Religion is be deducible by equal application of law: "Religious and cultural activities are exempt from legal oversight - except where they intrude into the public sphere (Res Publica)"
