Had proper post planned today, but instead spent a couple of hours live-tweeting the 2nd reading of the welfare reform bill in the Lords. If you're interested see #wrb on twitter.
I've also been keeping an eye on #stopDSEi - the hashtag used by those protesting the fact that one of the biggest arms fair in the world has opened in London today. See here for more info.
I can't help but draw parallels between the two - both are focussed on profits over justice, both are in fact spending money gathered from taxes to make lives worse for the majority and better for the minority who stand to gain.
