Passing expensive, unwanted and unnecessary crime bills, threatening the sanctity of our free Internet, enacting widespread electoral fraud and, now, straight-up deception with Parliament and the public alike.
If the Tories don’t get the boot after all this, we may as well just give them a license to bend us over at the waist.
