if he really believes it is wrong (which i believe), his resignation would be a means of warning the public (and making brown look like cnut). If he goes on the evening news and details the problems with the bill, including the 42 days and the end of open and impartial inquests it would serve to be a big wake-up call to the electorate.
IF he is doing it for that reason, then i would commend him. Maybe there are people of integrity in politics!?
He is on Sky news now and for me he is saying all the right things.
It seems to go a lot deeper than the 42 day matter and he is talking about the descent into a surveillance state.
Am I witnessing a decent politician doing the right thing?
An honourable and principled MP? Whatever next? I didn't always agree with him, but hats off to one of the few men of integrity in British politics. He's just confirmed that he intends to stand again, and let's hope he gets re-elected - perhaps even as an Independent. Given the current state of Labour, he should walk it.
