More recently, but no less perniciously, Tony Blair’s control orders remained in force against people suspected (but never convicted) of involvement with terrorism for years after 9/11.

FEW things are worse for your self-image than sitting in the hairdresser’s chair in a shapeless gown, facing a mirror, with bedraggled wet hair.
