This article is based on the inviolability of the legal principles underlying rule of law and explores the ways in which various governments have responded. In addition, it considers the importance of the legislative processes, recognizing that the failure to honor them leaves open the door to executive exploitation and the misuse of power. It also reflects on the efficiency of anti-terrorist legislation. Does this legislation stop, deter or punish criminals; is it "comfort legislation" directed towards producing and maintaining public confidence; or is it counter-productive through the alienation of innocent victims and ethnic, religious and immigrant groups?
