Save the Parliament Square One. The Home Secretary's decision to use valuable legislative time to pass a law to put an end to Brian Haw's protest opposite Big Ben against Iraq policy brings to mind words such as nut, free, sledgehammer and speech. Mr Haw's encampment is an eyesore to some. But it is not half as irritating as his message is to some ears. If appearance is the problem, let us launch a campaign to smarten him up. Give him his own, beautified, "technical area", with flowerpots and corporate sponsorship. Let Mr Haw have the last laugh.
