Creeping state control

Control orders were originally introduced as an anti-terror measure, however, like all good ideas (!), mission creep ensures the idea spreads to other areas. The Government noiw wants control orders for "gangsters" who avoid prosecution.

Who will be the next group of individuals to face control orders?

It would be ironic if the "gangsters" cannot be prosecuted for involvement in any actual crime but are found guilty of using a mobile phone or travelling inappropriately!
