I Can Smell Bad Legislation

An article in today's Times (here) analyses the reform of the Lords that Blair is looking to "rush through" parliament before he stands down. The parliament act will be used to override the Lords and ensure that the debate on the options is curtailed.

If this is going to be the modus operandi of the last few months of Tony Blair's "presidency" then ill thought out, bad legislation will be the order of the day. This Labour government will never understand that with legislation, sometimes less is more.
