More pub nonsense

Share This

Just in case you thought the opposition parties had finally got bored and started doing something constructive, they’re trying to stop us from going to the pub again:

Peers voted by a majority of 33 for a motion calling on the government to think again.

This is the biggest rebuke the Lords can use, but will not mean the legislation – due to come into force on 24 November – is delayed or scrapped.

Shadow culture secretary Theresa May said: “This is yet another humiliating defeat for Labour. It clearly shows the gulf between Tony Blair’s government and public opinion.”

Lets just think about this for a second. Firstly, the vote has no effect whatsoever and the Lords is in a state of no-overall control; in what way is it a “humiliating defeat” for Labour?

Secondly, Theresa May is actually claiming that a vote in the House of Lords is indicative of public opinion. Not just reflective, but indicative. Read it again: “It clearly shows the gulf between Tony Blair’s government and public opinion.

Theresa now honestly, have you been at the Bacardi Breezers again?
