Emergency debate on Extradition Act/Treaty

I have been watching the emergency debate in the House of Commons since it began and await the result of a vote to decide whether the debate should continue. More later. Almost all Members who spoke, including those on the Government back-benches, spoke opposing the position of the Government.

Result - Eyes to the right 246 - Noes to the left 4

Can you believe it?

Pretty overwhelming! This Government and its flawed policies relating to Extradition have been shown up for the nonsense they are! I will post some more detailed comments about what I saw and heard a little later.
