The Tories in the House of Lords try to scupper Civil Partnerships Bill

No surprise really, Baroness Young's spiritial successor in the House of Lords (Tory Baroness O'Cathain) had an amendment to the Bill passed relating to long-term carers, clearly desgined as a wrecking amendment, a Government spokesperson has apparently told BBC News Online. Read this and see what you think. Personally it suprises me not in the least; I'll be interested to see what, if anything, Michael Howard plans to do to try and salvage his Party's feeble record on all matters relating to sexual diversity, something he pledged to do when he became Leader late last year.
