Don’t be fooled

I always find it interesting that when big things are going on in the world, like the US elections or the EU referendum, this is the time the UK government goes, right then lets shift stuff through that probably won’t be allowed normally.

For example did you know that they have sent to the House of Lords the bill to cut ESA by £30  a week. This would be not the first time, nor the second but the third. Twice it has been beaten, maybe they are thinking third time is the charm.

I don’t know how they get away with this sort of thing. Its not like I would be able to go to court 3 times, if I didn’t get the answer I liked.

    The way it works is that the lords can only reject a motion three times and then the Commons can push it through. The idea is that they have the people power as they’re elected.
