I think this tweet from Green peer Jenny Jones to be pertinent:
The consternation of @UKLabour MPs rings hollow when you realise they did *not* do all they could in the Lords to stop the #PublicOrderBill. Labour peers must do as they are told by @Keir_Starmer and at the final vote they abstained. https://t.co/ptg5ZV062w

I am aware of the anger of some peers at the time this happened, and their amazement at Labour's decision not to block this legislation which trampled our human right to protests.
The right to say, peacefully, that Charles was not a person's chosen head of state was denied. And I hold Keir Starmer amongst those responsible for that. It might have been Tory legislation, but in the end Labour enabled it. We saw the consequence yesterday.
Thanks for reading this post.
