    You would have thought that all MPs and councillors would agree that 'Democracy is a good thing' and 'We should encourage people to exercise their democratic right to vote'.

In a devastating condemnation of the Bill the Conservative-led Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee estimated that, in a general election, over 1 million people would be deterred from voting.
