Ed Hints at Lords Retreat

Miliband told the Lobby lunch that the Lords reform bill “coming through Commons has to be a bloody good Bill” if the Parliament Act will be used to force it through the Lords. It’s safe to say that if it even gets to that stage it will be a mess of wrecking amendments and contentious points. Who will decide on what a good bill looks like?

Guido fully expects the “it’s not a good enough Bill” to be used as an excuse for the whole thing to be ditched. Ed would be able to blame the Tories forĀ abandoningĀ something his own troops don’t want.
