It is pleasing to see one piece of Nanny nonsense, the ID Card scheme, is destined for the dustbin of history under our brave new coalition government (also HIP's).
However, I am more than a tad concerned to see that the rules for terminating parliament via a vote of confidence have been altered, from a simple majority of one MP to a majority of 55%.
The coalition (or do we simply call them the Tory government?) propose to put forward a motion naming 7th May 2015, as the date of the next general election. There could be an earlier election only if more than 55% of MPs vote to dissolve parliament.
However, the fact that Lord Adonis (the unelected mouthpiece of last days of the dying Labour administration) is so vocally against the idea makes me not yet too hot under the collar over it.
A dead parliament that is forced to continue on life support until the end of a fixed term is of no use to man nor beast, and indeed can be very dangerous.
We shall see.
