Polly Toynbee – Naked attempt to muzzle critics for 2015 election – http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/commentisfree+politics/lobbying With Lansley on the job ‘naked’ isn’t likely. He tends to be as easy to follow as looking at one of those puzzle pictures on the ceiling at the dentists.
UPDATE: Criticism of Laclustre Lansley’s Lobbying Legislation – http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2013/sep/03/andrew-lansley-lobbying-bill-criticism David Davis wasn’t supporting it for starters. Shades of those 600 odd pages of NHS nonsense.
‘General Sheeplic’ not impressed with Lansley.
S1. ‘What was Lansley’s problem with Dennis Skinner today? Lansley ignored Dennis repeatedly trying to intervene whilst allowing everyone else in and despite protestations from others about him ignoring Dennis. I thought Lansley behaved terribly today and he should afford a little more respect to his elders.
We remember Skinner’s hints on the Health Bill that materialised into absolutely no concessions at all so why would we believe him on this.’
S2. Cos Dennis is usually right.
The reason Lansley ignored Dennis – http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/watch-dennis-skinner-heckle-cause-1877167 Denis would get the better of him. However quite a few ‘had a go’ including Caroline Lucas.
The ‘Let Lynton Lobby Bill’ HMMM published 2 days before the House rose for summer break. Why are they now in such a rush? Doesn’t cover ‘Cash for Honours’ – http://www.parliamentlive.tv/Main/Player.aspx?meetingId=13717&player=smooth
Comes out of a high level meeting between the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister. Hmmm.
Owen Jones and Guido Fawkes agree that this Lobbying Bill is hugely flawed. Dogs Breakfast of a Bill.
