Commons security

The House Points column below was written on Tuesday evening. The following day Otis Ferry & Co. staged their protest on the floor of the Commons. I stand by every word, though. What do people want to see? Batman gunned down as soon as he starts to climb the wall?

David Blunkett says:
I'm in charge of security for the nation as a whole and what's happened here undermines confidence in the security service and counter-terrorism branch who, like me, have absolutely no control over the decisions of the House of Commons and the House of Lords.
What's that? A country where the security services have no control over the decisions that parliament makes? Outrageous!

I have now added Big Blunkett to my links. It seems a wise precaution.
