Tally Ho! *Parp*

Well as a good liberal, I strongly support the right of this embattled minority to defend their minority lifestyle from the oppressive grasp of a bigoted and populist establishment.

Michael is almost certainly right in terms of security at the Palace of Westminster being lax and inadequate. However, on an emotional level I come out in a rash at the notion of keeping our elected representatives in an hermetically sealed bubble. In order to separate them from wacky-funster Salafi headbangers in a foolproof manner it's likely to be necessary to keep them pretty much seperate from your average Johnny Englishman too. A price worth paying? I don't know to be honest.

Anyway, needless to say I am ready, willing and able to step in and seize control of the levers of power at a moment's notice in the event of the entire government being squashed by a falling airliner or blown up by a semtex filled ice cream van.

COMPROMISE SOLUTION - Hire special forces qualified fox hunters to defend Parliament.

Hey, I have no problem with their desire to hunt. Animal population control is a legitimate element of hunting.

On the security front, I don't think the Parliament or the U.S. Congress, for that matter, needs to be hermetically sealed from Johnny Englishman or from Joseph A. Sixpack. However, it seems to me that there must be some equilibrium that provides security and access, and obviously that equilibrium hasn't been found yet.
