I was going to include the following in my post below, but felt it deserved it's own post.
Anyone heard of the rather boringly titled Regulatory and Legislative Reform Bill? You may have seen me post on BBCFLUKN about it. But it's being sneaked in without us really noticing.
The bill is very likely to be accepted by the Lords, in it's amended form. Whereas, it would undoubtedly have rejected the original. Nonetheless the increased powers, delivered directly into the hands of MPs are dangerous to put it lightly.
I am going to wait to post more fully about this, as the bill is in limbo currently, but I will keep abreast of things. Problem with the bill is that it has slipped through so unnoticed so far that I have no doubt the original will be retabled at some point in the future. My personal worry is that thisaccepted amendment, simply provides a smaller step towards the original proposal.
