Both the Lib Dems and Tories have opposed the Bill, but where were Labour’s “usual suspects”? And why haven’t the Lib Dems been shouting about this? To be fair, there is a whole page dedicated to the Bill on the Lib Dem website, but it is hardly prominent.
The Bill is now in the hands of the Lords. I have a lot of faith that they will make drastic improvements. The problem is, Labour will almost certainly make this another grudgematch when it comes back to the Commons, which means that the fate of the UK constitution will depend on whether Hilary Armstrong remembers her pocket calculator or not. This is no way to run a country.
