There will be consequences for those Conservatives who voted against the Bill but that is a matter for David Cameron. Our (Liberal Democrat) response will be taken in the light of what happens further down the line.
But Labour – Labour should be ashamed of themselves. Labour believe in Lords reform (so they said). They have always believed in Lords reform (so they said). Last week they had the opportunity to make it happen. They could even have said that without them (given the size of the Tory rebellion) it would not have happened. They could have crowed about saving it. But no. They put their party interest way ahead of their principles. Real colours there on display. Next time Labour talk about being progressive………………
Anyway – on the side of the angels see this site for comment.
