A former Liberal Home Secretary writes…

Winston Churchill writing to Labour Home Secretary Herbert Morrison on November 21, 1943:

“The power of the executive to cast a man in prison without formulating any charge known to the law and particularly to deny him the judgment of his peers is in the highest degree odious and is the foundation of all totalitarian government, whether Nazi or Communist.”
