Is not it obvious that the Prime Minister's case is weak and that is why she has to Whip? In any case, the Prime Minister knows very well that the full facilities of the Government could so easily be put at the disposal of the hon. Member for Aldridge-Brownhills as he takes the Bill through the House, so her excuses are absurd. When even her right hon. and hon. Friends describe her attitude to and tactics on the Bill as "monstrous", "dangerous", "a political SAS" and as the tactics of the gulag, is it not obvious that her response has nothing to do with state security, and everything to do with a shallow, spiteful and spurious attitude?
