Yes, this government does actually do sensible things too, occasionally.
First up, the Justice ministry has decided that it will repeal parts of the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005 that made it difficult to protest freely around parliament. Justin has more on this. And a deserved mention to Tim Ireland who’s been campaigning tirelessly on it.
The campaign by various bloggers, including myself, to push the govt to offer asylum to Iraqi translators of British armed forces has also met with real success. So, well done David Miliband.
Oh, and do sign up to this campaign by TheyWorkForYou: Free our bills!
