News Round Up

There were some good speeches made yesterday by the 78 MPs who voted against the extension of the Coronavirus act for a further six months.

They included Sir Graham Brady, who remarked that “This habit for coercion and control has gone too far”

The Liberal Democrats all voted against. Former leader Tim Farron said that for him the greatest concern is that “the Government’s default, knee-jerk attempt to seek these draconian powers for this lengthier period of time is now beginning to fit into a pattern”.

And Finally, Sir Desmond Swayne gave an absolute barnstormer of a speech, saying, “Tyranny is a habit and we haven’t quite kicked it.”
