Hague mocks Mandelson – Dissolution of Parliament debate

Update: The motion to dissolve Parliament and trigger an immediate general election was lost – 340 to 268 in a secret ballot.

Isn’t it perverse that a government with a majority can vote to keep itself in power?

There are 321 349 Labour MPs and I assume that most, if not all, voted against dissolution. If so, then only 19 MPs from parties other than Labour it is reasonable to assume that all MPs other than Labour MPs voted to dissolve Parliament.

The motion was tabled by Plaid Cymru and the SNP and backed by the opposition parties. SNP Westminster leader Angus Robertson called for an “historic, reforming election” to rebuild the public’s trust in politics, as the Labour government lacked moral authority.

    .. and discredited, depleted and dishonest.

    In yesterday's dissolution debate, Labour speakers spun, lied, ducked and dived – as usual.

    It's in the video when she stands up and starts accusing Hague of character assassination – surely translates as "Gorra job boyo ?"
