"We know a word for this sort of behaviour, don't we children"

"Lord" Goldsmith has apparently declared himself against the extension of the maximum period pre-charge detention of terror suspects from 28 to 42 days. It seems that whilst giving evidence to the Commons' Counter-Terrorism Bill standing committee, Lord Goldsmith said:
"The case has not been made out for that extension and I can't personally support it."

Of course "Lord" Goldsmith was the Attorney General when the same Labour government tried to get the increase to 90 days through Parliament?

Maybe you know a word for this sort of behaviour? If you are going to suggest anything on this blog be careful, Joyce Grenfell might be reading from above.
