In the UK, the top conservative politician David Davis has resigned as an MP in order to highlight his opposition to the detention of terror suspects for 42 days without charge.

Mr Davis is also to stand down as an MP in Hull and call a constituency by-election to highlight the issue of the erosion of civil liberties in Britain.
He will then stand as a Conservative candidate again for the same seat, in the by-election set to be held on July 10.
He will campaign on the issue of civil liberties in the Hull area and throughout Britain.
On the issue of 42-day detention Mr Davis had to persuade Conservative Party leader David Cameron, and in particular his close political ally George Osborne, that the Conservative position should be steadfastly on the side of civil liberties and therefore opposing the 28 day limit being raised.
In June 2006 and 2007 George Osborne attended the annual Bilderberg Conference.
Osborne should be kicked out of the Conservative Party and David Davis should become leader of the Conservative Party.
