How Cool Am I ?
This is not a court, members of Parliament are entitled to express views

There is a nasty habit developing amongst Politicians and their acolytes to presume that they are the arbiters of the Law. One thinks of Harriet Harman citing 'The Court of Public Opinion' (A lynch mob), as a lawyer she should have been struck off for bringing her profession into disrupte.
Side stepping the Courts ie the speeding tickets farago, and discounted 'sentencing' if you admit your 'crime' without going to Court is the Nu Labour way.
The State does not like people or Organisations that stand in its way, and certainly does not like uppity Lawyers telling them to their face that what they are doing is against natural Justice.
Inside their heads they are protecting us, the reality is they are oppressing us all.
