Labour priorities, episode 1,345: dying children vs. self-congratulation

Exhibit A: EDM 1496, congratulating the Parliamentary Labour Party on its centenary, tabled by Ann Clwydd yesterday and already signed by 147 other MPs by 10am the next day.

Exhibit B: EDM 1500, calling for increased government funding for children’s hospices to enable them to die with some kind of dignity, tabled by Bob Spink yesterday and – despite apparently having been inspired by a campaign by The Sun – signed thus far by only 2 other MPs.
