LETTER : The Scott vote: what hope now for our democratic process?

From Mr Chris McDonnell

Sir: So, the Government wins the Scott debate vote by the finest of majorities, one. Maybe the narrowness of its victory reflects on the duplicity of the means adopted to achieve it, more than a defeat by five or 10. That would at least have indicated that some honest reflection had taken place on the government benches.

Forget losing the next election, for that is gone already. With this vote, something far more important was lost - the integrity of the House.

Yours sincerely,

Chris McDonnell
