The campaign continues and reaches the eleventh hour this week. The Lords vote on Tuesday will either improve this terrible Bill, or see it pass in its current non-JCHR compliant form which will mean the campaign to stop the Bill will have failed.You may recall David Howarth’s advice at the recent party conference to the Liberal Democrat leader in the Lords, Tom McNally:
Tom, I know the Lords can stop this bill. You know the Lords can stop this bill. They should stop this bill.McNally and his chief whip Dick Newby have ignored this advice. They are arm-twisting Liberal Democrat peers who oppose secret courts, advising them to abstain rather than vote against the government.
If you would like to treat McNally’s and Newby’s stand with the contempt it deserves, here is an opportunity to do something about it.
