Update: It seems like this is not the truth any more. However, the actual truth is hard to ascertain, because the Home Office website says it's seven days, while Damian Green says it's fourteen.

So much for a quick blog then.

Yes but. Isn't it the case you can be charged on the Continent as a sort of holding process, and the investigation can go on for months after being charged? Whereas in the UK you can be held without charge for longer, but in order to charge you they have to have a case otherwise you walk free?

@jim surely the fact that in the UK you can be literally thrown in jail on a whim without knowing why is much worse than knowing the charge and being able to fight it.

Scary shit OBO.
