It has been a hectic afternoon for the ConDemned coalition. First the Deputy Prime Minister, then the Secretary of State for Education were dragged through the House of Commons by the opposition. An opposition, in Nick Clegg's case that included many Tory coalition partners.
The Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, charged with introducing a bill to reform the voting system in the UK, found himself questioned, time after time by Tory members of Parliament.
No surprise really, the Tories are dead set against reform and even the Prime Minister will vote against Mr Clegg's reform bill. So much for coalition, Mr Clegg you have been well and truly shafted.
Now, the Tory eurosceptics are after a Bill on the continued membership of the European Community. The LibDems are, of course, the party in favour of membership. Sticky times ahead, Nick, very sticky indeed.
The opposition accuse Clegg of gerrymandering. Organising the system to ensure that the LibDems gain more seats, the Tories gain even more seats for life which will mean a virtual Tory/LibDem coalition in perpetuity.
Following Mr Clegg at the despatch box came Michael Gove, Secretary of State for Education who was twice reprimanded by Speaker Bercow for his conduct this afternoon.
This takes us back to the untouchables of the first Thatcher government. Smug, ignorant of life outside their bubble and interested only in their policies.
Speaker Bercow halted Gove in mid stream and would not allow him to continue at one point. Then Ed Balls informed the House that papers which should have been available, first to Members of Parliament, had been given to the BBC and other the media. Once again, Speaker Bercow censured Gove. Twice in a one hour period, Mr Gove will not be the Speakers favourite Minister of State.
No change at Westminster it appears, one rule for some, another for the rest of us.
