What right-wing lunacy is there inside the Conservative rebels' 'Alternative Queen's Speech'?
Donald MacintyreSitting on the front bench throughout the sulphurous proceedings, and looking as though she’d rather be anywhere else, Northern Ireland Secretary Theresa Villiers wore a frozen grin on her face. Indeed at one point, as diehard anti-coalition Tory Peter Bone was announcing his lethally entitled Prime Minister (Replacement) Bill, the grin morphed briefly into something akin to risus sardonicus, the facial spasm associated with strychnine poisoning.
In fact this bill, on constitutional arrangements for finding a successor if a Prime Minister is “temporarily or permanently incapacitated” was one of the more harmless of the 40 “true blue” private members bills formally presented by the Conservative Party’s delinquent ultra-awkward squad yesterday. Except that you couldn’t help wondering who would be doing the incapacitating.
