    An "out of touch" politician? Surely not! :D

    One of my favourite quotes - unfortunately I can't remember which politician said it "I know all about modern technology and youth culture - I have an iPhone!" - what a prick. :rolleyes:

    They'll be voted out of office on May 6 so I'll not worry too much.

    I respond to those who troll by simply playing along with there little game and treating them nice. In that way they can say nothing bad. But This is merely a 1 on 1 example. I cant control other commenters.

    I like to ask them questions too, many many questions lol

    It's called the party whip. MPs vote the way they are told to by the party leader - and usually do unless they have strong objections.

    It was rushed through in the short time between announcing the General Election and dissolving (shutting down) parliament to allow campaigning to take place for the elections.

    Rushed legislation is almost always bad legislation so I expect they'll have to have another look at this when the dust settles...and the current idiots are voted out of office.
