The Guardian has the story on its web site – see link above

I despair more deeply every day as Mrs May(hem) takes us closer to a fascist sate where reasoned humanitarian arguments stand for nothing against the will of the rich and the powerful and make no mistake that’s the direction she is taking us in in my view.

That we have to reply on the unelected House of Lords to stand up for decency beggars belief but with Corbyn hitching his wagons to Mrs May’s wagon train she has a massive majority to do pretty much as she wants.
