Is the Commons finding its balls?

Reports that enough Tory MPs may support amendments to Cameron's 'Sovereignty' Bill to actually make the thing meaningful are encouraging; not that, I suspect, their action will make any difference to the Bill, but because it demonstrates that Parliament is rediscovering what it is it's supposed to be doing. All strength to their arm.

I bloody well hope so. They still don't quite get it do they - "referendum if POLITICIANS think it appropriate". Yeah, right.

I was told, that, you can't find what isn't there, Enoch Powell was the last time a man walked into Parliament.
Indeed, Powell was a MAN, who could hold his head high, a principled gentleman.
He was also, a sublime orator and possessed, an absolutely towering intellect - My word! - he was too good for politics and for that rat run in the commons.
No, there isn't a man among 'em, there are some lasses who make big bollocks though - eh Hattie?

In a word, no. An occasional scratch doesn't get rid of the crabs.
