There should be far more rebellions like the one yesterday

A brief footnote to Stephen Tall’s piece yesterday Government suffers defeat in Lords over ‘new poll tax’ changes to council tax benefits.

Note what the rebellion was over:

An independent review of the changes to be carried out within three years of them being introduced.

Yup, that shocking idea that after a new policy is introduced, we should leave it a little while and then someone should go and take a look how it’s work. Revolutionary stuff, hey? It’s the sort of thing that should be the norm.
