Britain surrenders to al Qaeda: Authorities to notify "muslim panels" prior to anti-terror raids

Goodbye, England. You were great once.

We'll miss you.
POLICE have agreed to consult a panel of Muslim leaders before mounting counter-terrorist raids or arrests. Members of the panel will offer their assessment of whether information police have on a suspect is too flimsy and will also consider the consequences on community relations of a raid.

Members will be security vetted and will have to promise not to reveal any intelligence they are shown. They will not have to sign the Official Secrets Act.
Why make them sign it? If you can't trust a "moderate Muslim" to be an enthusiastic supporter of the war on terror, who can you trust?

...and what is the purpose of this, exactly? I can't see one, save for a possible PR boost.
