This government is unbelievable. Identity cards, curbs on freedom of expression, people detained without trial, illegal wars, rendition flights, the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill and now this suggestion that Members of Parliament should have an arbitrary limit placed on the number of questions they should ask. Parliament is becoming more and more neutered. If we carry on like this there will soon be little point in our elected representatives turning up at all. Four centuries ago their predecessors took a stand against the power of the monarchy. The time has come for present day Members of Parliament to make a similar stand against the growing powers of the executive before it is too late.
