Sounding a retreat

The government has temporarily at least retreated on the House of Lords destruction reform as even Tory MPs managed to rebel. I shall blog about it properly tomorrow when I have had a chance to look at Hansard and seen the list of rebels.

Meanwhile, the Guardian confirms the whispers that have been going round that the Boy-King personally rounded on Jesse Wood Norman, the leader of the rebels who has conducted a very effective unofficial whipping-in operation. I hear tell that Cameron accused Norman of behaving dishonourably. As some people have been saying, the Boy-King must be living in a parallel moral universe. But then we have always known that.


  1. "Jesse Wood" is that a typo?

  2. Memo to self: do not post late at night when you can't see straight. Corrected.
