Noblesse oblige

The House of Lords did the noble thing today and threw out the 42 day detention proposals.

By 309 votes to 118. I doff my lowly cap to you, lords and ladies. Bravo.

The Bill may come back to the Commons for another go, but I suspect the government’s heart just won’t be in this, given that the purchase of NI unionist support might be too problematic a trick to repeat.
