Lib Dem Lords oppose Nationality and Borders Bill.

April 4, 2022 9:17 PM
Message from Lord Chris Rennard:
Today, I and my fellow Lib Dem Peers will be voting against many aspects of the truly terrible Nationality and Borders Bill.
Brian Paddick has been leading brilliantly on this. This is his summary of issues we want to oppose in any votes today:
Lord Brian Paddick

Lord Paddick, Lords Spokesperson for Home Affairs

This is a Government without moral conscience and which has no sense of shame.
Later this week we will be voting against their plans to rig election rules in their favour.
Unfortunately, they have seen what Victor Orban can do in Hungary with control over the media and election processes, combined with an appeal to crude and nasty nationalism.
Opposing these kind of things is why many of us are involved in politics.
