ID Cards Bill

Asked if the Government had a strategy to rescue the ID cards Bill from pinging back and forth between the Commons and the Lords, the PMOS said that the consistent majority of votes in the Commons for ID cards reflected public opinion which supported the principle of ID Cards and we believed that the Lords should take account of that. The votes in the Commons had ranged from 33 to 51 in favour.

  1. The votes had ranged from 33 to 51 in favour.

    When Labour has an effective majority of 69 votes.

    Nicely glossed over :o)

  2. These rebellions are all shit. stage manged to keep fools living in hope that NewLabour is actually OldLabour, not that they were much good.

    Imagine it: Chief Whip to Bob Marshall Andrews and Jeremy Corbin " Come on lads, your turn this time to lead the revolt. For appearances sake" "Fuck off we’re sick doing it. Get some other cunt, Fat Dobbo, maybe; that other smarmy git, wassisname, Meacher, he’ll be up for it. As for us we’re gonna vote with the government. Like the Tories do."

    If these rebels had anything about them they would’ve quit and formed another party. Wouldn’t they?
