Im quite surprised really, all the muttering over the past few days seemed to suggest Blair was going to get this bill through. The Conservatives
seemed to be split somewhat on this bill, but apparently they all voted, as one, against it.
Defeated by 31 votes, when your government has a 50+ majority, this will be tough for Blair to reconcile I feel.
Edit: vote for law with 28-day maximum instead of the 90-day, backed by 323 to 290.
