Today in Parliament…

Sir George Young is doing his first stint as Shadow Leader of the House at this very moment. (First stint this time round; he’s done it before). A marked change from his predecessor, Alan Duncan, who could always be relied upon to bring a bit of verve and humour to the occasion. He’s just asked for a debate on the Guardian injunction, and also on the EDM which calls for election night to be protected, i.e. for the count to be held on the Thursday night. He said that the latter was ‘a burning issue in the blogosphere.’ (Clearly reading from his notes; I suspect Sir George is not intimately acquainted with the blogosphere). I received a phone call during Harriet’s response so don’t know what she said about Trafigura, but on the election night issue she said it’s first and foremost a matter for the Electoral Commission.

On the Trafigura issue – all MPs were copied in this morning on a letter to the Speaker from Carter Ruck. If anyone can explain to me how you attach links to pdf documents on here, I’d be happy to post it.
