no torture

Guardian: No torture, please, we're British

I think it's excellent that the Law Lords have ruled that evidence procured by using torture will not be admissible in court (whether it's an immigration tribunal or a general court of law). Torture is utterly abhorrent and wrong. Full stop. And it doesn't produce reliable information anyway. Take any historical or recent use of torture, and this can be shown to be the case.
