Commons bar MEPs, Lords are more sensible
I have started looking out for relevant EU stories, and one comes this morning from an unexpected source: the House of Lords blog, organised by the Hansard Society. Lord Norton reports that the Upper House is to continue to allow MEPs to have passes to that part of the Palace of Westminster, after the Commons had earlier in the year resolved to withdraw the right. It seems that the Commons decision was not an anti-EU gesture in advance of the Conservatives coming to power (though no doubt Mr Cameron will be in no hurry to reverse it) but a move against the BNP.
