Public mood has hardened over terror cases, Blair tells judges

PUBLISHED July 27, 2005

Tony Blair yesterday warned judges who have been 'blocking' deportations and other features of his anti-terrorist legislation that the public mood has hardened against such moves since the London bombings began.

The prime minister used his monthly Downing Street press conference to express trenchant condemnation of suicide bombing, and to criticise those who claim that western policies in Iraq, Afghanistan and other Muslim states provide some justification for such tactics.
