I am shocked that the Labour and Conservative front benches in the Commons
have joined forces to vote for a special exemption for MPs from the Freedom of
Information Act. This brings Parliament into disrepute.
The lie is that the Conservative front bench has done nothing of the sort. If you look at the 24 Conservatives who disgracefully voted for the Bill on Friday, only 9 hold front bench positions - and all of them fairly junior.
By making duplicitous statements like this, it is Ming Campbell himself who is bringing parliament into disrepute.
