Never let it be said that Parliament is not concerned with the big issues: Gordon Banks (the MP, not the goalie) has a debate today in Westminster Hall at 4pm entitled "Looped cords on window blinds". A real must see event.
Coming next: A debate on the dangers of wooden clothes pegs.
UPDATE: Apparently the debate comes as a result of THIS tragic story, so a correspondent tells me. It is indeed a very sad tale, but does one tragic case imply that these things should be banned? If we go down that road there are very many things which the State could deem dangerous. Accidents will always happen no matter what precautions are taken. The difficulty is where to draw the line.
