Tories + Opposition = Backing for Labour

Chris Black asked on his blog a couple of days ago if we care about democracy.

Well today's debate in Westminster on the Electoral Adminstration Bill is a case in point. The Tories are worried about broadening democracy saying it will allow fringe groups to get more access, although they were relieved that it helped their survival in Scotland.

The thing is that extreme groups will be open to more scrutiny if they are in the national picture. The only thing the Tory's and Labour should worry about is there lack of direction and ideas in such a system. Indeed the Tory have shown today how to act as official opposition. Have doubts about part of controversial legislation but back the whole. Will things change in 6 weeks? Doubtful.
