Gurkhas vote defeat....

I am so proud of those Labour MP's who felt unable to vote with Government this afternoon and decided to abstain.

I think it was just about clear to everyone just how out of step the Governments plans were amongst the other parties, and more importantly, throughout the country.

Congratulations to Nick Clegg - he made his point well during PMQ's - leaving Gordon the defend the indefensible. A word also for Martin Salter - a true hero.
