When they were introduced in the UK in 1974, it was thought that the first anti-terrorism laws would last six months at most. Now, nearly fifty years later, they are still with us, greatly expanded, doing many things that would have been unthinkable when they were first introduced, and thriving despite an end to IRA violence (their original rationale) and the general downturn in global terrorism that we have seen in recent years. Are anti-terrorism laws here to stay? Does it matter if they are?
