A Rite Of Passage

Forgive me, but Polly Toynbee is ranting about me in today's Guardian and that does make me feel just a little smug.

I don’t even mind that she is misrepresenting my position. The fact that Polly Toynbee hates me is a badge of honour, and one I will wear with a smile, and a degree of pride all day long.

Her ire has been invoked by the fact that Harriet Harman is today tabling a motion which will prevent abortion being debated or voted on this Wednesday.

If a vote had been passed to liberalise abortion even further, allowing young girls to abort alone at home, does Polly Toynbee think the people would faint with relief and cry thank goodness for that, Parliament at its best?

If the MP dubbed by some of the media as “Dr Death”, Evan Harris had got his way, would the country have been a better place tomorrow?

I have to admire the way Harman’s smoke machine is working. A variety of journalists have all been briefed different reasons for abortion being dropped, some being told that there will be dedicated time for an abortion bill next year.

Of course, we all know it won't be in the up-coming Queen's Speech, and there will be no other vehicle on which to bring in a Bill, unless a Private Member's Bill falls to a strong minded campaigner.

Abortion has been slam dunked straight into the long grass.

And this afternoon, the pro-abortionists will march on Westminster.

Weather check anyone – is rain forecast today?
