Conservative M.E.P. Daniel Hannan hits a rough and ready constitutional note in the Daily Telegram’s blog

“It is worth remembering that we came through a civil war to establish the principle that revenues should be levied and disbursed by the House of Commons. If the Fawcett Society wants a different budget, its members should put themselves up for election and argue their case. Then again, why go to all the trouble of persuading the voters when you can simply subvert the democratic process through the courts?”
