Re: Sense of proportion

It's not just the government. Despite being really jolly cross about the IPB, peers just waved it through in the end too. Not because they had to - they could have made all sorts of trouble by using the processes of parliament to obstruct the bill indefinitely - but because it would be bad form.

After the last few months, you do have to wonder what the point of democracy is.
