THE ONLY QUESTION:

Public willing to trade civil liberties for security (epolitix, 8/22/05)

A new poll reveals that almost three quarters of the public believe it is right to give up civil liberties to boost security against the terrorist threat.

The Guardian/ICM poll shows that 73 per cent of respondents back feel it is a price worth paying, with only 17 per cent rejecting the trade-off outright.
