There seems to be a lot of handwaving from the Prime Minister at the moment. First, last week's speech in which he announced (with solemn head-knodding so that we could be certain of his sincerity) that the rules of the game are changing, and that the government were going to change the rules for deportation and if necessary amend the Human Rights Act. Only now Lord Falconer says they aren't.

How then to react to today's announcement that the government is considering treason charges against some of the Islamist nutters? The heart says he gets it. The head says he's spinning.
