TerraceAfter the belated Webcameron-based story on medicinal use of Cannabis, the BBC has been quick to pick up on one this week about football terraces.

David Cameron was asked whether he supported the Early Day Motion that urges the Government to "re-examine the case for introducing small, limited sections of safe standing areas at football grounds".

Cameron responded very reasonably that "when" he was in Government he would ask his Sports Minister to look into reforming the rules, as other countries managed to have terraces in some form.

He did emphasise that safety was "priority number one" and that the tragedy in Hillsborough should be kept in mind but this is still, understandably, a very emotionally-charged issue in Liverpool and he is likely to take some flak for this statement as Kate Hoey did in 2000.
