House of Lords debates – Tuesday, 5 February 2008 – Parliament Square: Demonstrations

Lord West of Spithead clearly has an open mind about Haw’s display [rolls eyes] and regards himself to be a peacemaker because he once stopped his driver from laying into a protestor.

In other news, my submission is one of a whopping 500+ from concerned citizens.

I love you, Great British Public, I really do. (And next week, I’ve giving you all a special present to show you just how much I love you.)

    In other good news, Lord West does appear to have ruled out the "harmonisation" of powers which the consultation was angling for. It could be that they've already worked out from the responses that it was a non-starter.

  2. Manic says

    I was trying not to let optimism get the better of me. There are quantifiers in his statement regarding this. IIRC, he said that they do not *intend* etc…Example: They didn't really *want* to inavde Iraq, and did everything they could to avoid conflict.
