Indeed. And that TB's plans for them are no longer frightening them.

BTW - you might be amused to know that when I see 'DB2', I think of an IBM database.

You know, I'd be a lot happier with the Lords if they pulled this shit on Conservative governments as well.

We could argue that right now they are doing.

In a way. I'm pretty sure that Thatcher did things that were every bit as looney and the Lords didn't bat an eye though.

Very true - the poll tax being but one of them. On the other hand, we're quite a while later now (hmm, better part of a generation?), the Lords has been shaken up somewhat, and though I hope the current bunch would now raise merry hell against a Thatcherite Tory government should one come to power, I sincerely hope we never get one ever again.

It gets better and better, doesn't it? Who'd have thought twenty years ago that we'd be applauding the actions of the House of Lords against Labour (well, sort-of Labour) politicians loudly and enthusiastically?
