Shenanigans defeated

So...the Tories got a doing last night on their proposed vote. No debate and a 302 - 228 defeat. So there !

Now, all we need is the Scottish parliament to pass a similar law and we're all sorted.

I did laugh though when I compared the arguments of nay-sayers from England against those from Scotland.

England - "We have a problem of binge drinking in this country. If you extend licensing hours, all you are going to do is give people longer to drinking. We are going to see more problems of binge drinking, alcohol-fuelled violence, anti-social behaviour and crime and disorder on our streets"

Scotland - "we've got a bevvy culture"

Linguistic genius !
