Stop it.

Stop calling for resignations. Stop branding people traitors. Stop turning politics into a personality-centred farce.

Personally I'm delighted the powers to detain terrorist suspects without charge were raised to twenty-eight days instead of the proposed ninety. But it's not a shameful defeat. It's nothing to resign over.

It's a sign that democracy still works.

I look to more matters of importance being decided by personal conscience and genuine representation of the people, rather than the whip system of political allegiance and ambition.
