The snoopers' charter unites the Labservatives

From BBC News this afternoon:
Labour and the Conservatives could unite to push through the controversial communications bill despite Lib Dem objections, a former Tory leader says. 
The bill, allowing the monitoring of all UK citizens' internet use, was dropped after a split in the coalition. 
But Lord Howard said David Cameron had "to act in the national interest" following the Woolwich murder. 
Labour leader Ed Miliband has said that "if he [the PM] wants a communications bill, we'll help him get it through". 
Mr Miliband told the Commons earlier this month that if Mr Cameron was being forced to drop certain policies because of "people behind him" - his own backbenchers - then Labour would step in.
