Remind me what democracy is all about again...

... because once again this government is determined to erode another piece of it. Labour MPs are hopefully going to show a little more backbone this time and derail this nasty piece of legislation before it removes the right of local people to protest against development in their own communities (see here).

Clearly this law is designed to make it easier for this government to push through their plans for the expansions of airports and nuclear power. Perhaps if it fails we'll start looking at more sustainable ways of living, like micro-generation using renewables and an expansion in the railway network to bring it in line with the rest of Europe. Who am I kidding?
