Grasping At Straws

Jack Straw has been doing the media rounds complaining about the referendum legislation. Putting the voting system aside, he had the cheek to moan on the World at One that the boundary changes that come with the reform would harm Labour’s electoral chances. He openly said what every Labour backbencher knows, but most have the tact not to say out loud. He called it “wholly partisan legislation”. So the bent system that we have now is fine because it is skewered in Labour’s favour? Very telling.
