Oh Dear - Yet Another Case Of 'Shooting Oneself In The Foot'

Does this government have any idea of what it is doing?

According to the BBC, it appears that Dr Malcolm Jack, the House Clerk, has said a bill to reform Parliament raises profound issues about the relationship between MPs and the courts.

So we have the situation possibly arising whereby, whilst an MP cannot be held legally liable for anything he says in the House of Commons, his words could be used in a court case and subsequently have a bearing on any ruling/decision given.

As this 'reforming bill' is being rushed through Parliament it will no doubt end up as being a 'dog's dinner', the result of which will be on par for just about every other decision this government has taken.
