- On 22 June 2015, I brought my last post to the attention of David Anderson QC, the Independent Reviewer of Terrorism Legislation, inviting a response (email to him). It is laudable that he responded openly and so promptly: see his same-day comment on my last post.
- Nevertheless it is disappointing that the independent reviewer straightaway deleted reference to Anne Power, the “freelance media consultant”, in his official blog post dated 11 June 2015 (screen shot in Figure 1). This even after he seemed to acknowledge my point about the need to record publicly there retrospective edits to that blog post.
- On Anne Power and her potential conflict of interests, it is also important to note that Mr Anderson failed to answer my question whether it was ex-ACPO Anne Power – only saying that she has worked for “a variety of employers in the past”. Both this evasion on ACPO and the deletion of her name in his blog post dated 11 June 2015 are unacceptable.
