Another defeat for Blair. The slope steepens.Blairs second major policy defeat took place over his religious Hatred Bill. Read more here.
Good. It was another bit of ill thought out legislation that even our useless MPs could see through. Now finally they see a weakened Blair and like the rats they are they are getting up the courage to attack at him.
I note however that my local MP is still voting with the Government. Out of his last set of figures he has not voted against the Government once. Read his dismal record here. Over his entire voting history, in 2225 votes he has voted against the whip a total of 25 times since 1997. That includes Fox Hunting, ID cards and all our Anti Terrorism Bills. What a kiss arse.
Hopefully defeats will come fast and furious now. It looks like he is starting to compromise a bit to stave off defeat but that will not save him now. The end is near and I think 2006 is looking like a good year. Hope the same can be said for our local MP.
