Where's the Posse?

Will Lord Alton of Liverpool get up a posse of Parliamentarians to de-proscribe,

"Extremist Islamist groups to be banned under new terror laws"?

"The Islamist group Islam4UK, which planned a march through Wootton Bassett, and its "parent" organisation, al-Muhajiroun, are to be banned under new legislation outlawing the "glorification" of terrorism."

I have written before (To Proscribe Or Not To Proscribe) about proscription. Lord Alton of Liverpool and others challenged the proscribing of People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran ... and won.

I wonder whether or not it will be possible for this gov to 'ban' (under section 21 of the Terrorism Act 2006) or maintain this 'ban'.

I look forward with interest to the legal challenge against the Home Secretary.
