Democracy at work?

New Labour party whips are afraid that the government will lose the Commons vote over the extension of detention without charge to 42 days with as many as 50 backbenchers, including 10 former ministers, set to rebel. The government can't even rely on their good friends the Tories this time as the Conservatives are opposing the bill.

It couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of guys or on a better issue.
