Labour abandon policy and principle - again!

This morning's Independent highlights once again how Labour's agenda is being dominated by opportunism and oppositionism rather than policy and principle with a report that Ed Miliband's party is planning to derail reform of the House of Lords at the earliest possible stage.

The paper says that Labour intend to join forces with Tory rebels in tabling a Commons procedural motion in an attempt to derail the bill at its first hurdle. They are expected to vote against a Commons timetable for the Bill, forcing every part of it to be debated by the whole house rather than in committee.

Labour of course, had reform of the House of Lords in their manifesto. However, instead of engaging in debate on what that reform should look like they seem more concerned with stopping it happening altogether.
