I never thought I’d say this, but well done to the House of Lords. At least some of our politicians have got a bit of sense.
Let’s hope that that’s it for this odious piece of legislation, and that Brown et al don’t try and squeeze it in through the back-door somewhere down the line. Nah, they wouldn’t would they? Not after suffering one of the biggest defeats in the history of parliament, ever.
