The Tory MP Matthew Offord, completely unknown to me until he made a rather pompous Point of Order about people using IPads in the Chamber (an issue which is yet to be resolved) is invoking Art. 8 of the Human Rights Act – the one which protects the right to a family life – because he’s been told he’s not allowed to bring his dog to work.
Of course Mr Offord, being a typical Tory, doesn’t like the Human Rights Act, but hey, it has its uses. Here’s the full story http://tinyurl.com/notmadjustbarking.
And I’d like to dedicate this song to Matthew and his pooch.
