He outlines controversial new steps, ranging from seizing assets from suspected drug dealers - which could see anyone stopped with more than £1,000 having the money confiscated - to draconian new restrictions on the movements of those suspected of involvement in organised crime.
Even if they are not convicted of a crime and there is insufficient evidence to try them, suspects could be banned from associating with certain individuals or travelling to certain places, in order to disrupt trades such as human trafficking.
Blair went further in describing the new 'lake-based' justice system which will replace 'innocent until proven guilty.' "It's very simple," he said, "if the suspect drowns then they're not a witch."
Slightly more coherent comment on the exchange between Blair and Henry Porter from Liberty from which these new plans emerge can be found over at Tim Worstall's place.
I think I can predict a majority of blogospheric opinion when I say that no-one's buying this shit anymore. My most charitable reading of Blair's reasoning is that it's an extension of the 'something must be done' school of logic: shit, there are terrorists and we can catch more of them if we tag every man, woman and child - and even though it's an incredibly illiberal and costly idea, something must be done.
He's a fool, and a dangerous one at that.
