Happy birthday Shami!
Shami Chakrabati – director of Liberty – celebrates her fortieth birthday today. According to The Times, she’s taking the day off from defending the Human Rights Act and getting rid of ID cards, to spend the day with her husband and seven-year-old son. Sounds lovely.
You can keep the Liberty flag flying on Shami’s day off by popping over to No2ID and signing the pledge or getting more involved.
Of course, if anyone has Gordon Brown’s phone number and can persuade him to drop the whole idea today, I think it would top even the present that Shami’s son has been bursting to tell her about. We can only hope…
