The Government has been forced to delay the 2nd Reading of the flagship Bill in the Lords due to peers’ concerns over the people affected.

Department of Work and Pensions is suggesting other business has blocked progress but the surprise postponement till September from Tuesday will also give the Government time to lobby peers and answer the queries raised in Disability Alliance’s legal challenge.

  1. So they all go on their holidays this week and parliament is in recess for I’m not sure how many weeks, however it leaves good windows of opportunity open for fresh protests and campaigning. This Murdoch explosion might possibly bring down Cameron, or it might be the end of the Coalition which would force a General Election, so as I see it there now exists a glimmer of hope where there was none, but it would be a fatal misjudgement to do nothing in the interim.
