Glitter shines on public policy

Just now, on Today, James Naughtie challenged Jacqui Smith over the timing of the Home Office announcement of plans for tighter restrictions on international travel for people convicted of sexual offences against children. Isn't this, he wondered, merely a knee-jerk style reaction to the release of Gary Glitter.

"Cases like this" replied the Home Secretary "highlight the questions we should be asking."

That would be a "yes", then.
