Silly Question Really, Dear Boy

During the debate in the House of Commons on Monday last, on the subject of Parliamentary Privilege, the following question was asked by Richard Shepherd (Conservative) - Aldridge-Brownhills:

'How does this House defend the freedoms and liberties of all people if it's unable to defend the freedoms and liberties of this House?'

The members of this supposedly august establishment have, either through adherence to party loyalty or maintaining a deafening silence due to party orders, decided to hand over their greatest privilege which is the right to make the laws of Britain. As was mentioned in a previous news item on this website, Parliament - Privileges & Principle, this they did only with their consent, not ours.

As a result Mr Shepherd if you are unable, or unwilling, to defend the freedoms and liberties of the people you are elected to represent, it is hypocritical of you to attempt to defend your own freedoms and liberties.

As the late Captain Manwaring would have said - 'Stupid Boy'!
