So, having put up a bill which spits on the Bill of Rights, the government is now frantically back-pedalling, and trying to reassure people that it won't actually pass. But as amusing as it is to see them doing this a mere day after ramming it through to select committee under urgency, I have to ask: if they don't intend to pass the bill in its present form, why did they put it up in the first place?

Meanwhile, Labour's chief criticism of the bill seems to be that it is not vicious enough. And people wonder why I have such contempt for them...
