Senior British police have asked UK Prime Minister Tony Blair for draconian new powers, including the right to detain a suspect for up to three months without charge instead of the current 14 days.

The Association of Chief Police Officers(ACPO) have also asked for a new specialist U.K. border-security agency -along the lines of U.S. Homeland Security.

The police are also seeking to have a suspect's right to silence removed. In a statement they said:

' The obligation placed on company directors in fraud trials to answer questions would have significant benefits if developed into the arena of counter terrorism.'
Police also sought extra funding of £45m ($76) for a new generation of CCTV cameras at ports and airports. The police body further wants to be able to attack and close down Web sites in order to to "suppress inappropriate internet usage."
