A new age of politics
There's something odd going on, when it is the House of Lords, full of party placemen and hereditary aristocrats, that is protecting human rights in asserting evidence obtained by torture should not be used. And the the Tories look much greener than the Labour Party. (Yes it is easy to "look" things in opposition, I agree, but still Tony Blair barely even pays lip-service to environmental issues, and his government policies are even worse.)
Does left/right mean anything any more?
