From a government that promised that it would fix our broken politics, this really is a Bill to be ashamed of. Despite a raft of panic concessions won by huge pressure from irate charities and third party campaigners, this is still a Bill that stands up for vested interests and shuts up everyone else... This is not what this legislation should have looked like. We have a desperate need for political reform in our country because people are switching off from politics in their droves. They want to see action to clean up lobbying because every lobbying scandal just erodes their trust further.
