The despatch box

We're you thinking what the Conservatives were thinking? Did you believe the Lib Dems were the real alternative? Is Labour moving forward not back? This blog will focus on all things political. It will be irritating, agitating and maybe just maybe it will get you thinking.

Labour hypocrisy

The Sunday papers have given plenty of column inches to Labour MP, Dr Hywel Francis and his complaint about a local pub near his London flat applying to extend their opening hours, in spite of the fact that he supported the legislation allowing this to happen.

Unfortunately this sad state of affairs comes as no surprise to me. Firstly I find it ludicrous that this Government thinks you create a continental cafe culture by allowing pubs to open longer. I would say "wake up and smell the coffee", but if they get their way it will be wake up and smell the lager, vodka shots or whatever else you have in mind.

It's even more galling when you read stories like this where those who have backed this move suddenly don't like it when it's in their back yard. But then it comes as no surprise does it. If you are a Labour MP you can complain about people who send their kids to private school - but justify sending your own. A party whose MPs had free University education - who pass it onto our children. The list goes on and on.
