The Magna What???

The Magna Carta established one of the pillars of modern democracy and civil society. This is the primacy of the law. Nobody should be above the law, or outside the law.

Ivan Milat, convicted of seven murders had his days in court.
Martin Bryant slayed 35 people. His guilt was never in doubt, and yet he went to court.

So it's deeply worrying that those who are meant to be the chief law makers in our country cheerfully discard the protection that all should be entitled.

The incarceration of David Hicks represents a disdain for democratic values, and undermines the core of what is valuble in a society.
