The digital economy bill. A travisty and shame on democracy.

The other evening I tuned in to watch the debate on the digital economy bill (DEB)
I was genuinely shocked and disgusted at the travesty to the democratic process that was unveiled before my eyes.  For the first time in my life I considered not voting in the next election. For such an  important and wide ranging bill to be forced through in the way it was shocking and the collusion of the  main party's disgusting.

A record of this shame is on the parliamentary archive here:
