Iain Dale has posted about the abortion debate and votes and I must applaud the tone of the post. I especially want to point out the last paragraph about Parliament itself and say that I for one agree that open debates with free votes are always the best parliamentary spectacle. I do however also understand why it won't work for the majority of business, not because a government can only get their programme through by whipping hard, but because an awful lot of legislation is just too dull.
Nadine Dorries hasn't posted about it yet, the last post on the blog we all pay for is about people accusing her of being a fundamentalist Christian. Which neatly sidesteps the actual accusation which was that her campaign was being funded by CCFON.
